Softa ware developed in 1995

It was  the year  1995 .Desk tops   were  available  but no google search   to find out  information  about  various things.
  I was  working  In Indian Institute  of Horticultural research .I   though  we can collect information   about   cultivation practices  of various  horticultural crops and put in computer.My director encouraged me  .I started  visiting  several  centres  of  South India to  collect  the needed info.This took about an year and then  editing  , and loading all that information took  another 6 months because only one desk top was available with us 
Once loaded   I wrote a programme   which would give all types on info about  various crops .WE started loading that info as   well as programme  in disks.
Whenever a farmer approached  for info, we used  to take a print out  of his need and give it to him..I was surprised to find a news item anout in India today magazine of 1996

रामायण Ramayana in modern Hindi slang


रामायण Ramayana  in modern Hindi slang

Translatedin fun,
P.R.Ramachander

कौसल्या ने पुत्र जना , रामचन्द्र ही आज
अस्पताल बारात हुई , शुरू हो गया नाच 
भरत शत्रुघ्न लक्ष्मण , पुत्र तीन थे और
पूरी अयोध्या नाच उठी , खुशियों का था दौर 

Kausalya  gave birth to a son, Called  Ramachandra today
She was admitted to hospital, the dancing started
BHaratha, Sathrugna, Lakshmana   were   three sons
Entire Ayodhya    started   dancing, The run  was of jou

पुत्र सभी बड़े हुए , पहुँचे अब स्कूल
इंटर तक रखा गया , मोबाइल से दूर 
ग्रेजुएशन में बनाई , फेसबुक पर आयडी
हनुमान दोस्त हुए , सीता मैय्या भाभी 
सम्पत्ति के खेल को , खेल गयी कैकेय

Sons all grew big and reached  the school,
Till they reacher  , they were kept far away   from mobile
When they graduated  they were given Face book Id
Hanuman  became their friend And Lady Sita Wife of Rama,
The  Game of wealth    was won by  Kaikeyi

राम जायें वनवास को , राजा भरत ही होय
दसरथ को मैसेज कर , निकल पड़े श्रीराम
साथ में सीता माँ और , भाई था लक्ष्मण नाम

Rama   went to live in forest, the kingdom became that of Bharath,
After   sending a message to Dasaradh, Rama started from there
Along with his name was  that of  mother Sita And Brother  Lakshman

शूपर्णखा की फ्रेंड रिक्वेस्ट , आई प्रभु के पास
इसी बात पर हो गयी , सीता जी नाराज 
राम चन्द्र गुस्से में , निकल गए एक टूर 

The friend  request of Sita came and reached  Lord Rama,
Due to this  Sita  became very angry ,
Ramachandra  also became angry and went on a  long tour

रावण ने फायदा उठा , ले गया माँ को दूर
रिप्लाई जब ना मिला , कुटिया पहुँचे राम
लक्ष्मण चैटिंग विद उर्मिला , भूले सारे काम 
डांट खाई प्रभु राम की , शुरू हुई तब ख़ोज

Ravana used  that opportunity  and took mother Sita far away,
When Rama  did not get reply  , he reached the hut,
Lakshmana   while chatting with Urmila   forgot all jobs.
He was banged by Rama and the search   started then.

सिग्नल के अभाव में , जीपीएस था लूज़
इसी बीच सुग्रीव से ,  हुई एक मुलाकात
दोनों के दुःख एक से , हो गए दोनों साथ
बाली का स्टिंग किया ,किया पुलिस के हाथ
दूर किया सुग्रीव का , बरसों का सन्ताप

Due to absence of Signal, GPS   was loose,
In the middle a meeting with sugreeva took place,
Became they had same type of sorrow, they became together,
They stinged Vali   and he was handed over to Police,
And several years sorrow of Sugreeva   was made  far away

हनुमान को देख कर , प्रभु ने किया प्रनाम
आँख में आँसू पाय के , पवनसुत परेशान
लंका में नेटवर्क का , नही हुआ विकास
बन्द है प्रिय का फोन , होवे कैसे बात

Seeing Hanuman, the Lord Saluted him,
Nd seeing tears in his eyes, Hanuman became sad,
The Net work of Lankd had not developed,
And  so phone of my darling is closed, What   shall we do
, 
परेशान प्रभु हो नही , मरेगा वो रावण
खत्म होगा ये युद्ध जब , लगेंगें वहाँ टावर
हनुमान उड़के गए , दिया रिलायंस का सिम
माँ ने प्रभु को फोन किया , दोनों बातों में गुम

Oh lord do not get worried, Ravan will be killed,
And when the war ends, we will  erect a tower there,
And Rama went there and gave  a SIM  of reliance,
Mother  nade aphone call to lord, and both of chatted

रावण के गुर्गों ने , पकड़ा श्री हनुमान
आग लगाई पूँछ पर , बिफर गए श्रीमान
स्वाहा किया तुरन्त ही , सोने का वह होम
रावण डिप्रेशन गया , कैसे भरेगा लोन
वापस आकर राम को , बता दिया सब हाल
राम ने बोला मित्रगण , साफ करो हथियार

The Gurkhas  of Ravana  caught hold of Hanuman,
And when he put fire on his tail, That gentleman lit fire everywhere,
He immediately returned, and mage his Home  in to gold,
Ravana went in to a depression, how shall I clear the loan,
Hanuman returned  back and told all news,
Rama told, Oh friend, clean your weapons

धनुष बाण काफी है , क्या होगा परमाणु
लंका जब से जल गयी , रावण है कंगाल
पूरी सेना चल पड़ी , लंका फतह को आज

There was plenty of bows and arrows, what will happen to Bacteria,
Ranka has already been burnt, Ravana is in the fire pot,
All the army went,they identified  Lanka

सुग्रीव लकी हनुमान , करते ऊँची आवाज़
जीतती सेना देख कर , लक्ष्मण इन उत्साह
देख रहे मेसेज तभी , बाण से आई मुरछा

Sugreeva and Lucky Hanuman made huge shouting,
And Lakshmana enthused by seeing winning army,
Was  reading the message,and hit by an arrow fell down

हनुमान उड़ कर गए , बाबा जी के पास
जड़ी बूटी के लेप से , लक्ष्मण खड़े थे आज

Hanuman Stood up    and went to the Doctor,
Due to ointment of roots and sticks, Lakshmana   Stood up then

राम ने मारा बाण तब , रावण गिरा जमीन
बोला प्रभु माफ़ी दियो , कृत्य गलत था कीन
राम के स्टेटस में , आई एम विद माय लव

Rama hit with an arrow, Ravana  fell on the ground,
Lord said, I pardon you, who does not do mistake
In the status of Rama  IM  wilth love

मेरे एक प्रहार से , मर गए दुश्मन सब
वापस पाकर सीता , पहुँचे अपने धाम

By just one hit of mine  , all enemies are dead,
He  Got back   Sita and reached his home

पूरी प्रजा दीप जलाकर , करती है सम्मान
आसमान से देख के , वर माँगे " शशांक "
अर्पित चमक प्रभु चरण , हो कभी थकान !!!

The entire population lit   the lamp and honoured him,
Seeing   the sky   , The moon (author of this poem)  asked for a boon,
And dedicated the light at the feet of the lord, Never will there be tiredness

(I have very great  respect to my friend  Meena Rajan , who is   a  great teacher  who has  sacrificed herself   to educate kids in the school  where  she became a teacher   .She does  some times  write great poems  .This was one .My writing is not a simple  translation of her work .I have used  my fashion of writings.Thanks, sister)

To show love  and get  love, I  am a selfish lady,
Some   times that  life  is my own personal world,
And   just like  anybody  else  , I too have   some expectations

For my love , words, thoughts, sorrows and  joys,
I expect   a mind of love, which would  understand me.
I am not  able  to be without expectations, Am I not also,
Yet  another  ordinary    average   lady with some  desires.

To my smiling face, if  he  shows no emotions, I will fade,
If he refuses  to understand my words, I will run far-far  away

He can get  me tied with  his love,
He  can buy  me   with  his affection.

He need not   even talk to me but thoughts about me  are  sufficient,
To pull him  near  to me, my dear thoughts  should be  more than okay.

Dear expectations , small , small criticisms,
Love  quarrels,  going beyond each other’s rights,
And sometimes   going much beyond him and his,
Are joy  , heavenly joy. Unalloyed joy .

What is Nirmalya Darsanam and Vaka chathu in Guruvayur?


What is  Nirmalya Darsanam  and Vaka chathu  in Guruvayur?

Translated from Malayalam by
P.R.Ramachander


Normally   we take “NIrmalya  Darsanam”,
AS  that   which remove  sins(dirts)  in our mind,
And some how   every one   thinks  it is seeing God ,
Without his  garland  or decorations.

But as soon  as the doors   are  opened  ,
What we see  is the God  decorated ,
With all  the previous   day decorations ,
And this is not NIrmalya darsanam.

This  darsanam   should be done   with  chanting,
Of Vedic Sukthas  and the  devotees  ,
Should put   the flowers  in their hand,
Towards the steps  of the sanctum.

Then the priest   wakes up the lord ,
And removes   the dress  sandal  paste  ,
And flowers   from the lord   and what we see,
Is the bare  statue of God  without decorations  and this  is Nirmalyam

Since devotees  believe   that  by seeing  the God,
Glistening without  any decorations  is more  beneficial,
They think  Nirmalya darsanam   grants  ,
More   blessing   than any  other darsanam.

Then the God   is given a   bath  and,
Gingelly  oil  is applied  on the lord,
And powder called Vaka   is put  on the statue,
So that    oil can be removed-This is called  Vaka Charthu,

Normally the powder of dried  leaves  ,
Of the Nenmeni vaka  (siris   tree ) is used ,
To remove   the oil   applied  to the God,
And the  God appears  very pretty  with sprinkled Vaka

Then the  Vaka   as well oil is removed from  the body,
And the God is dried  and he is   dressed  up,
For all of us   to see  after in various,
Forms mainly using flowers   and sandal-Chandana Charthu

Today I attended a story telling program for adults and children conducted for raising funds to “aasha Infinite fondation, Bangalore” which is a platform engaged in educating and mentoring under privileged children .
The program revolved round the stories of Indian mythology and folk tales all involving  granting boons by Gods saying “thathasthu” the program was hosted by house and was attended by about 60 people from age one to 80 .
The programme was conducted by by Mrs Meera Venkatesan along with Parvathy Easwaran and Jyothi Kunjoor
They told stories of Bhageeratha , Hiranya Kasipu Bhasmasura and Tenali Raman .These were told in a humorous rocking manner, which made all the audience laugh throughout.Dance and music was thrown in, We all never knew how the time ran so fast
It was a great experience .I left there wanting to ask them about their next program ,Thathasthu
