A Wonderful Blend of Poetry and Music


   A Wonderful Blend of Poetry and Music(A review of a poets' meet )
 ***************************************************************************

Respected dignitaries on the dais and dear friends,

                       Sugathan Master set the tone of the meet by inaugurating the session with a splendid rendering of the poem written in Malayalam 'Veedu' by O N V Kurup.His musical rendering took me to the olden days when I sat alone in the late night carnatic concerts in Kozhikode during my B Ed days.Sitting in the crowd but feeling alone and excited in the flow of music I would forget myself and leave the hall refreshed and ecstasic.Today when Santhosh Cherupuzha, Subash Edavarambu,Vishnu Manoj and Sreelakshmi Sashi presented the poems -Post Mortem, Iruttile Kazcha(a view in darkness ),Therali (the driver )and Varu Nee Koottukara(Welcome my friend),I have the same feeling.I am sure all of us  feel raised to higher plane of life.and this meet of poets marks this special camp as different from all the the other  camps being conducted in various parts of this district and perhaps in the state too.This is a different experience. After this session , being  part of the audience ,I am convinced that poetry can lift human minds to a plane where we all will feel exalted and poised for action.

                 That is what poetry does.It changes us.It becomes a powerful defence against the forces of darkness like marginalisation, colonisation and sexual abuse.The poems presented here reveals the pathos and agony of common man when we hear about the rebels being shot down by the police or about the hunters who haunt the darlings even from their sleep bed in slums.Poetry takes us into the realm  of nostalgia and makes us hopeful that one day we might  meet the lost friends ,at least in a riot torn land.The poet cannot hide the rebellious thought  when he realises that even a devilish criminal like Govinda Chami(the rapist who murdered an innocent girl Soumya) is let off the hook by the so called perfect system of blind justice in the society.


It is a fact that Poetry is something to be meditated over and it should blossom up naturally in one's heart.And that is how each line is created by a poet.A poet would have meditated over a word many times and it is a challenge to decipher them in a poets' meet.That why I doubt whether I was able to decipher every line we heard in this session.This is a promise that I ,all of us will delve deep into these poems again and again.They are so powerful. I have wondered why poetry surges into our thoughts without being called upon.Last month  when I was standing in front of the Mysore palace observing its splendour and beauty-not a new experience  as I have visited this place many times - then come the lines of the poet Sachidanandan into my mind.All the forts and dungeons will become archives one day.Every fort will fall down.That lifts my mind into a new perspective of life.Then James Shirley speaks on .Only the actions of the just will smell sweet and blossom in the dust.Every thing else dies.This is what poetry is about.It takes us into eternity.It is a defense of the hurt,the lost and the abandoned.

                 Poetry is defined as the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings .It is also described as emotions recollected in tranquility. In my view it is more than that.It should be .It can and it should lift our mind to a plane where we will feel exalted and poised for action.A time will come when we can be sure that all our gazes are without revenge;all our words are without trash.(as quoted in the poem 'Veedu'). There will be a time when we consider the words of the other as sweeter than music.This session has provided us at least a dream to pursue .A dream of a change in attitudes and perceptions.That is what this meeting of the volunteers of the National Service Scheme is concerned about and that is why I am so grateful to the enlightened minds who were present here.It was a wonderful blend of poetry and music .
Thank you all.

The Storm of Desire( CREDITS TO http://www.parabaas.com )
A POEM BY Sankha Ghosh
In this hovering soundless solitude,
In the abundant lonesome winds of this dark evening,
You turn up
your white pale face
cold as a cloud, lightless like the moon
towards the enormous sky.

From a far-away land I tremble
with the unbearable agony of desire---
Bunched around your white stone of a face
thin wisps of hair tremble
in the dark wind
        like so many fingers extended
                in pain, in prayer.

The corner of the sky grows heavy
with clustering clouds,---
Flashes of longing tear through
with repeated ferocity,
Tidal waves of love seeking to burst forth
in tremendous ecstasy, agitate
the unbounded distances within the darkness,
the sombre complexion of a reflective unmoving land.
You turn up your face
cold as a cloud, lightless like the moon,
your breasts are like undulations of a land
that has wept itself to weary stillness
you stretch out your anxious wasted arms--- long-expectant,
prayer-tired, towards that furious enormous sky-----

Around them cluster darkness,
wisps of hair,
a thousand musical notes,
in the boundless lonesome winds.

Slowly creation reaches readiness:
      As if in one terrible blessedly-sweet moment,
the clouds of its desire break forth
in bolts of unbearable thunder piercing the middle
of your outspread breast, eager, upturned,
towards the total bliss of union---
Then,banishing all rubbish
from this wet dishevelled tumbledown world

CREDITS TO http://www.parabaas.com transpires
      a beautiful cool caressing
                  morning.

A critical appreciation of THIS IS GOING TO HURT A LITTLE BIT

"This is Going to Hurt a Little Bit"  by Ogden Nash is ironical and humorous.Sitting in a dentist's chair is indeed an unpleasant experience.It is hard ,annoying,shameful embarassing and frightening to keep your mouth wide open with your jaws digging deep into your chest and to let the dentist work up on your mouth with awful tools like the drill and the crowbar.It is terrible to imagine what would  happen if the dentist moving like a bear gets the teeth mixed up as he is using a mirror.After the job is over, we think it is all over for once.Then the dentist advises us to come back after three monce !The vicious circle of visits will go on .There is no escape for a human being from this dental torture.This graphic presentation in free verse contributes to the energy and lively spirit of  the poem.

The poem with rhyme amd rhythm has got a  simple and lucid language.Humour is cooked up with the right blend of irony,exaggeration,simile and puns.The very title of the poem is ironical.It reveals the importance of the way we percieve life. To a dentist ,it is a simple task.To the patient is can be a terrible experience.The peom analyses the embarassment and fear we feel with the help of exaggerations like  "The mouth is like a section of road which is being worked on".The puns like 'hope hopen' and 'three monce' make the poem alive with comedy .These devices add to the ironical and humorous tone of the poem.The poem  is an attempt to change an unpleasant experience into an acceptable predicament.Perceptions can change life.

Ogden Nash is trying to tell us that humour is the salt of life.A pinch of it can change the way we see things.Life can be beautiful if we take a lighter approach to wards it.Without laughter , life would be a sad place.As SofIa Burger stresses in her poem 'Laughter'

It is important the we move forward in life with a different perspective .

Never laughing at someone,
Only sharing together the humor of moments.

A SONG BY BOB DYLAN

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
How many

GHSS KAMBALLUR EXCELS IN COMPETITIONS in English AT SUB DT.LEVEL

Our member wins the first prize in Elocution(SPEECH) competition in English at sub disrtrict level(Chittarikal ) this year.Congratulations,NAVYA B NAIR,SCIENCE BATCH,GHSS KAMBALLLUR.Let us wish her all the best in district level and the state level.- CKR



THE SCRIPT OF THE SPEECH AS PRESENTED BY NAVYA ( The topic was CYBER CRIMES.)

Respected panel of Judges and all my dear friends ,

       Today in this valuable opportunity ,I am indeed happy to stand before you to  say a few words about Cyber Crimes.

      CYBER SPACE is a huge space which consists of many factors in the society.What is interesting about the internet media is is its power and impact.So the fact is that you should use it in a good manner.Have you heard the inspiring speech of Malai Yousaf Thai ? One book , one pen ,one school can change the world ! I heard this from the internet.The question is -are you using it -the computer-in a good way ? This is the thing we need to think about .

        The world of computer is good.It increases the power of communication and helps to develop human relationships.It should sustain better communication and develop positive attitudes.But is this happening here ?No. it is not.How many of you in this gathering do not use face book? No. Whats up ? and you ,respected judges ?No. Every one is glued to the cyber world.Why is it so ? It is because our culture is changing.We can't live without the media.

          But friends ,through the cyber world ,how many of our sisters have lost their lives ? How many families have been destroyed ? This is the specialty of the cyber world.it encourages relationships and it destroys relationships.

         Another fact -that is proven-why children depend too much on cyberworld is that is because of their family.

         In olden days children used to share their ideas , thoughts and dreams to their family members , to their grandma or grandpa at least.In the era of nuclear families , father and mother goes to work - to ensure the safety of their childrens 'future !.But they have no time to care ,to love, to spend a few minutes with them.So ,obviously children will depend upon the computers and the cyberworld.

       Hence dear youth,you are the one who is the dream of tomorrow;who should be the model for tomorrow.Knowledge at your fingertip should not be misused.Dear youth,let me call for your action -against cyber crimes,for a good tomorrow.For the good of our sisters, for a good family a single step of yours can turn into many steps of others-as goes  a Chinese proverb.

                                                                                            Thank you all.

SCRIPT OF A SPEECH BY ANUSHA KRISHNAN,GHSS KAMBALLUR


EDUCATION-THE KEY TO SUCCESS

script by ANUSHA KRISHNAN,12 SCIENCE,GHSS 
KAMBALLUR

A warm good morning to one and all. Respected principal, teachers and my dear friends,

"If you educate a boy, you train a man. If you educate a girl, you train a village." But are the women of our country India getting enough and good education? Are they enjoying freedom and equality? Are they empowered in all sense? Without thinking much we can say no. I think this is the right time to think about these issues as today is March 8, International Women's Day.

We all may have different dreams about our country India. Me too have a dream about a developed India where all the women enjoy equality, freedom and have greater access to education. As said by the famous economist Christine Lagarde in her speech, women empowerment is directly linked to economic growth of the world. The factors which are necessary for women empowerment are 'Learning, Labour and Leadership'.

Learning or education is the first step up on which any change is built. It helps women to help themselves and to know about their rights, through which they can make changes.

Labour is the second step which helps women to expand and achieve their true ability. But they face a lot of problems at work place, like low wages, low status and low security. One of our most important norms should be "equal pay for equal work".

The third one is leadership which enables women to rise and fulfil their abilities. We have so many examples of empowered women. For example, Mother Teresa, Mary Kom, Madam Curi etc.

Dear friends, let us try to inculcate equality, freedom and education to women of our country. For this, women should be ready to dare the difference. They should step out from their comfort zones. The society has a wrong prejudice about women that, they are the one meant only to the kitchen. We should prove this wrong by educating women, which is the first step of making changes. Education is the key to success. Education is the light to remove darkness thereby removing ignorance.

MALALA YOUSAF ZAI, , is a great example of what education and courage can do with women. . She says that one student, one teacher, one school, one book and a pen can change the whole world. We will realise the importance of light when there is darkness. We will realise the importance of voice when there is silence. We will realise the importance of education when we see guns and weapons'.

Dear friends, now is the time to make changes. Now is the time to take initiative . As students we also can support and work hard for women empowerment. As  citizens of India, it is our responsibility to provide basic facilities of education to our sisters and daughters. Let us work together for a developed India, where women enjoy equality and freedom.

Let me conclude my words. Thank you for your kind attention and have a nice day. Once again thank you.

A Speech on Women Empowerment- SCRIPT BY AMAL VARGHESE ,GHSS KAMBALUR

 EDUCATION FIRST    BY AMAL VARGHES,12B, KAMBALLUR

click here to download this file in pdf

RESPECTED PRINCIPAL, TEACHERS AND MY DEAR FRIENDS,

As we all know, today, March 8, is the International Women’s
day. All over the world, the day is observed to ensure that
women have an equal share in developmental activities. In
India economists, scientists, -each and everyone- are trying to
make India developed. And, still India is crawling without
development. India cannot  attain development @ 2020 if
everything goes like this. Why ? Because of the lack o
EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN.

India is one of the countries who consider women as second
class. India is one of the countries where a woman is
discriminated. We still have the dowry system. Female foeticide
is common. Although these are prohibited by law, they still go
on in our society.

Women empowerment is the key factor of development.
Recent researches show that elimination of gender gap in
economic participation can bring an increase in per
capita income.

We are celebrating MALALA DAY to support Malala . But Malala
says it is the day of everyone who raise their voice for their
rights and education. There are many women who struggle for
their rights and education. The life of an Indian woman
generally speaking is a series of slaveries. Until she is married
she is a slave of her husband and when she gets married she
becomes a slave of her husband and when the husband dies
she is a slave of her son whom she chooses to depend on.

This condition must be changed. As Christine Lagard says the
3L’s- LEARNING, LABOUR, and LEADERSHIP . The adage
that “IF YOU EDUCATE A BOY YOU TRAIN A MAN. IF YOU
EDUCATE AWOAN YOU TRAIN A VILLAGE” also points outthe importance of education for woman. Weakness, fear,
hopelessness must not rule the woman. But strength, hope, and
courage must rule them. This could be acquired through the
education.

The proverb “PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN SWORD”.
Is relevant here. The right education at right time will help
women to face challenges.

Learning helps women to know their rights and duties. Labour
or employment gives her the economic power to assert herself.
A woman without any income has to depend her father,
husband or her son for her needs. Leadership makes the
women powerful. She should be able to lead so that the world
become a better place to live in. Lagard says that women can
be better leaders than men. Women tend to make decisions
based on consensus building, inclusion, compassion and
sustainability.

For this women need the key called education. As George
Washington said, “EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO UNLOCK THE
GOLDEN DOOR OF FREEDOM”. For this , women must be
shielded with unity and empoerment . They must reject
prejudices of cast, sex, religion and colour. They must rely on
their potential.

And now it is the time to start or to continue our journey for
women education. It is true that sometimes women lack the
confidence to their competence. They have to change their
mindset .They should be ready to “dare the difference” to
take risk and step out of their comfort zones. I , therefore ,ask
the girls assembled here to take charge of their lives. You have
a lot to gain and nothing to lose by trying to make yourself
equal to men. “One child, one teacher, one book and one
pen can change the world. So education first ”.

I wish you success in your endeavours!

SYMPTOMS OF DIFHTHERIA

 FROM MAYO CLINIC

DIFHTHERIA Symptoms

By Mayo Clinic Staff
Diphtheria signs and symptoms usually begin two to five days after a person becomes infected and may include:
  • A thick, gray membrane covering your throat and tonsils
  • A sore throat and hoarseness
  • Swollen glands (enlarged lymph nodes) in your neck
  • Difficulty breathing or rapid breathing
  • Nasal discharge
  • Fever and chills
  • Malaise
In some people, infection with diphtheria-causing bacteria causes only a mild illness — or no obvious signs and symptoms at all. Infected people who remain unaware of their illness are known as carriers of diphtheria, because they can spread the infection without being sick themselves.

Skin (cutaneous) diphtheria

A second type of diphtheria can affect the skin, causing the typical pain, redness and swelling associated with other bacterial skin infections. Ulcers covered by a gray membrane also may develop in cutaneous diphtheria.
Although it's more common in tropical climates, cutaneous diphtheria also occurs in the United States, particularly among people with poor hygiene who live in crowded conditions.

When to see a doctor

Call your family doctor immediately if you or your child has been exposed to someone with diphtheria. If you're not sure whether your child has been vaccinated against diphtheria, schedule an appointment. Make sure your own immunizations are current.

One woman, many roles(CREDITS TO THE HINDU/ IN SCHOOL )

As an engineer, she changed TELCO’s employment policy; as a writer, she has encouraged many to take to reading — Sudha Murthy, the author in focus

“The great Tatas have always been pioneers. They are the people who started the basic infrastructure for industries in India, such as iron and steel, chemicals, textiles, and locomotives. They have cared for higher education in India since 1900 and they were responsible for the establishment of the Indian Institute of Science. Fortunately, I study there. But I am surprised how a company such as TELCO is discriminating on the basis of gender,” wrote a young Sudha Murthy to JRD Tata in response to a job application that said “Lady candidates need not apply.” Little did she know then that she would make history, and become an icon for women's employment.
Sudha Murthy’s life story has never failed to impress many. Born in Hubli, a small town in Karnataka, she was always focused on academics. Once she was finished with school, she decided to take up Electrical Engineering at the BVB College of Engineering. It was still the early 1970s and engineering was a rare choice for women. Undeterred, Sudha Murthy went on to receive medals and accolades for her achievements while pursuing a post graduate degree in Computer Science at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. Back then, in the batch of 1975, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay, had less than five women in a class of 306. So, it didn’t come as a surprise when Sudha Murthy was the only woman in her Computer Science class.
And that’s when she came across the notice from TELCO on the bulletin board. Surprisingly, she did receive a response that clarified the real reason behind asking women to refrain from applying. It was that engineers would be required to stay back at the factory for long hours that would extend late into the evening. This wouldn’t sit well with woman candidates as their safety would be a major concern. While that was an acceptable line of reasoning, Sudha Murthy believed that women engineers had to be given a chance somewhere. Eventually she became TELCO’s (and probably India’s) first woman engineer.
Meanwhile, her experiences at work and her memories of growing up in a small town led to birth the author within Sudha Murthy. She began writing in Kannada, her native tongue, as well as in English. Her stories always inspire young readers and inform them about the various issues that are faced by common people in everyday life. Her collection of short stories How I Taught My Grandmother to Read and Other Stories chronicle her memories and experiences with her grandparents and older relatives, and has been translated into numerous vernacular languages. A Marathi movie is said to have been based on one of her stories.
Sudha Murthy has always been one to test limits. She did not stop at short stories but forayed into writing full-fledged novels as well. Her first novel titled House of Cards chronicles the turbulence faced by the wife of a successful doctor. Sudha Murthy wove tales with women as the main characters, and why shouldn’t she? After all, she is one of the most inspirational women our country has ever seen.

Congrats to Ms.Jyothi Vijayakumar; KERALA NEEDS NICE TRANSALATORS like her.

 I  was recently mesmerised by the way Jyothi transalated the speech of Mrs. Gonia Gandhi.( Ref  1 )
 It was an energetic translation which added to the tone and depth of  the speech .

When I browsed though the internet ,I find that Jyothi is a post graduate in English ,a teacher and  TV anchor.The students are advised to read the refernce given below and understand how people grow up with English.

The fact that translation is a nice career opportunity should also be noted.

 

 

 Well done,Ms.Jyothi Vijayakumar.

2.Kerala: Finally, a translator makes leaders wow

DECCAN CHRONICLE. | CYNTHIA CHANDRAN
Published May 11, 2016, 6:09 am IST

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The visits of national leaders have exposed the scarcity of good translators. But Jyothi Vijayakumar, who translated Sonia Gandhi’s emotional speech in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday, has proved an exception. The 36-year old who is working in an IT company in Technopark in their corporate communications department was congratulated by Ms Gandhi herself saying she did better than her.
It was KPCC president V. M. Sudheeran who requested Ms Vijayakumar to translate Ms Gandhi's speech from English to Malayalam after he remembered her translation of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s speech in Chengannur, her hometown, during 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Before that, she had translated Mr Gandhi’s speech in Chengannur in 2011 too.
When a majority of the Malayalis shy away from their mother tongue, she fondly recollects that it was her Malayalam medium school training at St. Anne's Girls High School, Chengannur, which has always kept her in good stead when it comes to translating the speeches of national leaders. But since the last nine years, she has been working mostly in English.
“I was speechless when Soniaji congratulated me saying I did a better job than her. It is easy for leaders when they come with a prepared speech, but it was difficult for me as I didn’t get the printed copy. I have been watching the videos of Soniaji the last few days to get familiarised with her vocabulary,” said Ms Vijayakumar, who teaches sociology to IAS aspirants.
In fact, Jyothi had twice cleared the prelims of IAS exam but then realised later that civil service is not her cup of tea. A postgraduate in English literature, she was the first woman chairperson of Mar Ivanios College, Thiruvananthapuram, in 1999. She holds a PG diploma in journalism from Thiruvananthapuram Press Club and is also a law graduate.
She is married to R. Paari, an IT professional from Tamil Nadu, now based in Bengaluru. The couple has got a four-year-old son, Govardhan. She is the daughter of D. Vijayakumar, former Alappuzha DCC general secretary, and Radhika, a homemaker. Ms. Jyothi also occasionally anchors a Malayalam programme, Saamohya Padam on Doordarshan.

comment :An energetic transalation.The transalator excels the speaker in tone and depth.The speech ends in a personal note of emotion and weakness,not in strength and resolve.A different ending would have been more effective.

Why does the poet use the colour purple in the poem DEATH THE LEVELLER ?
Please send your answers to seakeyare@gmail.com.YOUR ANSWERS WILL BE PUBLISHED HERE

ANSWER 1.
CREDITS TO http://www.enotes.com/homework-help/what-meaning-death-purple-altar-poem-death-273773
The reference to the color purple is very important in this line given the meaning behind the use of the color. The color purple can represent many different things. First, it is made from combining the colors red (the warmest color) and blue (the coolest color). This makes purple a color which holds balance.
The color purple is also a color typically used in religious ceremonies given its historical use in being worn by both royalty and is used as the color most representative by the Catholic Church during Advent. Purple is also the color used in funerals.
Given that the poem has a religious undertone, as denoted by the term 'alter', the use of the color purple makes sense.
As for the meaning of the line "Upon Death's purple alter now", the line refers to the fact that no one can escape Death. Death, in this case, is personified. What this means is that death is given a proper name (Death- denoted by the capitalization) and, therefore, is able to function in the same way that man can (Death can "lay his icy hand on kings").
Simplistically, what is being said is that all men will come to lie on Death's alter- a place where all who die must come.
