    Mr. Karunanidhi and Kripaananda vaariyaar

    Tamilnadu Chief Minister's speech yesterday on the occasion of release of a book written by Mr. Veerappa Moiley, Union Minister for Law was as follows: For the purpose of authenticity, I have given in Tamil as it was published in Newspapers

    நான் பள்ளி மாணவனாக இருந்த போது, திருவாரூருக்கு கிருபானந்தவாரியார் வந்திருந்தார். ‘உயிர்களை கொல்லக்கூடாது’ என்று வாரியார் பேசிக் கொண்டிருந்தார்.

    அப்போது நான் எழுந்து, ‘இந்த உபதேசம் எல்லா உயிர்களுக்கும் பொதுவானதா?’ என்று கேட்டேன். அவர் ‘ஆமாம். ஆடு, மாடு கோழிகளை எல்லாம் சாப்பிடுவதற்காக ஆண்டவன் படைக்கவில்லை’ என்றார். நான் எழுந்து, ‘சிங்கம், புலி சாப்பிடுவதற்காக ஆண்டவன் எந்த உயிரை படைத்தான்?’ என்று கேட்டேன்.

    அவ்வளவு பெரிய அவையிலே ஒரு சின்ன பையன் அப்படி கேட்டது தவறுதான். ஆனால் கேள்வியில் இருந்த தத்துவம் தவறானது அல்ல.(?) அதைப் புரிந்து கொண்ட வாரியார், ‘உட்கார் பிறகு சொல்கிறேன்’ என்று சொல்லி விட்டு தொடர்ந்து சொல்லும் போது, ‘அவர்கள் எல்லாம் வேறு ஆட்கள் என்பது எனக்கு தெரியும். அதனால்தான் நான் பதில் சொல்லவில்லை’ என்றார்.

    பின்னர் அவர் பேசுகையில், ‘தாவரங்களை சாப்பிட்டால் உயிருக்கு ஆபத்து இல்லையா என்று பையன் கேட்பான். தாவரங்களை சாப்பிடுவதால் உயிர்களுக்கு ஆபத்தில்லை. முருங்கைக்காயை சாப்பிடுவதால் மரம் சாகாது. கத்தரிக்காயை சாப்பிடுவதால் அந்த செடி சாகாது. அது பாவமில்லை’ என்றார்.

    நான் விடவில்லை. எழுந்து, ‘அய்யா, கீரைத் தண்டை பிடுங்கி சாப்பிடுகிறார்களே; அது முழுவதும் சாகவில்லையா?’ என்று கேட்டேன். எல்லோரும் கைத்தட்டினார்கள். இருந்தாலும் அந்த பெரியவர் மீது வைத்திருந்த மரியாதையை இன்றளவும் இழக்காமல் மாற்றிக் கொள்ளாமல் இருந்து வருகிறேன்.

    ஏன் இவற்றை சொல்கிறேன் என்றால் இளமையிலேயே ஊறிய பகுத்தறிவு, (?)அதன் காரணமாக எழுகிற கேள்விகள் அந்தக் கேள்விகள் ராமாயணத்தைப் பற்றியும் வந்திருக்குமேயானால் வீரப்ப மொய்லி பொறுத்துக் கொள்ள வேண்டும். “இந்த நூலில் பெண்ணுரிமை கருத்துகளை, ஏழை எளிய மக்கள் வாழ்வில் இருக்கும் கஷ்டங்களை எரிமலை போல அவர் வர்ணித்துள்ளார். அதற்காக நான் அவரை பாராட்டுகிறேன்'' முதலமை‌ச்ச‌ர் கருணாநிதி பேசினார்.
    (italics in this speech are mine.)

    I am translating this nonsensical speech, for the benefit of those who cannot read Tamil.

    When I was a student, Kripaananda vaariyaar came to Thiruvarur. Vaariyaar was speaking " Should not kill living beings"

    At that time I got up and asked "Will this preaching apply to all living beings?"

    He said, "Yes. God has not created goats, cows and chickens for eating purpose."

    I got up and asked " Which living beings are created by God for Lions and tigers to eat?"

    It might have been wrong for a small boy to ask such questions in such a big audience. But there was nothing wrong in the principle/property of this question.(?)

    Vaariyaar who understood this ( the brilliance(!)) said, "Sit down. I will tell you later." but continued, " I know these people are different. That is why I did not reply."

    Then when he was speaking, he said,"the boy asked, Is there no danger for life if you eat vegetables. There is no danger for life if you eat vegetables, By eating drum stick, the tree won't die. By eating brinjal that plant will not die. There is no sin in it."

    I did not leave at it. Again got up and said," Ayya. the stalk of greens are plucked with roots for eating. Is it not sin?" Every body clapped.

    Dear friends !

    What an absurd statement and lie it could be! Just imagine. Vaariyaar says "do not kill living beings?" What is the brilliant question from Mr. Karunanidhi for it? "Whether the preaching applicable to all living beings?" Vaariyaar says, " yes. God has not created certain animals for killing and eating"

    Let us take his story as true! Vaariyaar might have said that we i.e. human beings, should not kill living being. What is wrong in that? That was his principle. The brilliant Karunanidhi immediately represents for animals like lions and tigers. Vaariyyar never said that the animals like lions and tigers should not kill other animals. He was not preaching to animals. He was preaching to human beings.

    And Mr. Karunanidhi wants us to believe that Vaariyaar did not have answer to this silly question. If I am not wrong, Vaariyaar with his versatile humour sense, might have said, " I was telling this to human beings; not for you. "

    Then Mr. Karunanidhi poses another question comparing plants to animals. If Mr.Karunanidhi did not understand even after 80 years, the scientific basics that "
    animals have a far more complex structure than a plant. We (animals) are more able to control reactions. We have more complex requirements of growth" and claiming that his questions to Vaaryaar were excellent and brilliant and he could not answer to that goes to show how ignorant he is still in certain subjects. And there is a crowd to clap for such comments.

    God save "Paguththarivu (common sense or rationality generated by Periyaar and his disciples)

    Neither I am great admirer of Kripaananda vaariyaar or against Mr. Karunanidhi, but I could not tolerate this sort of speeches by a Chief Minister who is not supposed to speak about a person who is no more to defend this statement or confirm this is true. Mr. Karunanidhi is regularly in the habit of quoting dead persons have told him this and that, of which, nobody can prove or say against.

    The woman in your life

    Those, who just got married, or those who are likely to marry, please read this without fail. Parents! If you have not advised your son in this pattern,please do it right now, before it is too late.

    Yesterday you might have married an employed woman or Tomorrow you may get a working woman, but you should marry her with these facts as well.

    Here is a girl, who is as much educated as you are;
    Who is earning almost as much as you do;

    One, who has dreams and aspirations just as
    you have because she is as human as you are;

    One, who has never entered the kitchen in her life just like you or

    your Sister, as she was busy in studies and competing in a system that gives no special concession to girls for their culinary achievements.

    One, who has lived and loved her parents & brothers & sisters, almost as much as you do for 20-25 years of her life;

    One, who has bravely agreed to leave behind all that, her home, people who love her, to adopt your home, your family, your ways and even your family, name

    One, who is somehow expected to be a master-chef from day #1, while you sleep oblivious to her predicament in her new circumstances, environment and that kitchen

    One, who is expected to make the tea, first thing in the morning and cook food at the end of the day, even if she is as tired as you are, maybe more, and yet never ever expected to complain;
    to be a servant, a cook, a mother, a wife, even if she doesn't want
    to; and is learning just like you are as to what you want from her; and is clumsy and sloppy at times and knows that you won't like it if she is too demanding, or if she learns faster than you;

    One, who has her own set of friends, and that includes boys and even men at her workplace too, those, who she knows from school days and yet is willing to put all that on the back-burners to avoid your irrational jealousy, unnecessary competition and your inherent insecurities;

    Yes, she can drink and dance just as well as you can, but won't, simply because you won't like it, even though you say otherwise.

    One, who can be late from work once in a while when deadlines, just like yours, are to be met;

    One, who is doing her level best and wants to make this most
    important, relationship in her entire life a grand success, if you
    just help her some and trust her;

    One, who just wants one thing from you, as you are the only one she knows in your entire house - your support, your sensitivities and most importantly - your understanding, or love, if you may call it.

    Treating her with respect, caring about her well-being and happiness, showing her that she matters. It means being faithful to her, honest with her, being there for her. It means going the extra mile to show her that you're thinking about her.Treat the woman in your life with respect. It means putting her in high regard no matter who she is and where she came from

    But not many guys understand this......

    Please appreciate "Her"..............

    An old story with a new twist

    This is an interesting old story with a twist, but thought provoking. Please read without fail. It is a fact, that we only read such stories and forget.
    -Ant & Grasshopper

    The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.

    The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.

    Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold.

    .... Modern Version ....

    Ant & Grasshopper

    The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.

    The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.

    Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.

    Star News, NDTV, Aaj Tak, show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

    The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

    Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house.

    Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter.

    Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticizes the Indian Government for not upholding the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper.

    The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking support to the Grasshopper (many promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt support as against the wrath of God for non-compliance).

    Opposition MPs stage
    a walkout. Left parties call for 'Bharat Bandh' in West Bengal and Kerala demanding a Judicial Enquiry.

    CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard in the heat so as to bring about equality of poverty among Ants and Grasshoppers.

    Brinda Karat made controversial remarks accusing Ants of violating labour laws

    Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'.

    Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the 'Prevention of Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act' [POTAGA],with effect from the beginning of the winter.

    Arjun Singh makes ' Special Reservation 'for Grasshoppers in Educational Institutions & in Government Services.

    The Ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, it's home is confiscated by the Government and handed over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by NDTV.

    Arundhati Roy calls it '
    A Triumph of Justice'.

    Lalu calls it '
    Socialistic Justice '.

    CPM calls it the '
    Revolutionary Resurgence of the Downtrodden'

    Koffi Annan invites the Grasshopper to address the UN General Assembly.

    Many years later...

    - The Ant has since migrated to the US and set up a multi-billion dollar company in Silicon Valley.

    - 100s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite reservation somewhere in India...

    - As a result of loosing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the Grasshoppers, India is still a developing country!!!
