The Most Wanted

All professions are good, but those of teachers

and doctors are superior.Because, they  serve

 the society more effectively.While the teachers

can make the foundation of the nation strong by

imparting human values to young children,

the doctors contribute their gift to the health

of the people, by serving  the sick and discharge

 their social responsibility with compassion.

ಹಸಿವು

ಹೊಟ್ಟೆಯ ಹಸಿವು ಮನುಷ್ಯನನ್ನು ನಿಸ್ತೇಜನನ್ನಾಗಿ,ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿತ್ವಹೀನನನ್ನಾಗಿ 
ಮಾಡುತ್ತದೆ.ಸ್ವಾಭಿಮಾನವನ್ನು ಬದಿಗೊತ್ತಿ, ಭಿಕ್ಷೆ ಬೇಡಿಯಾದರೂ
ಹಸಿವನ್ನು ನೀಗಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳ ಬೇಕೆನಿಸುತ್ತದೆ.
ಹಸಿವೆಂಬ ಹೆಬ್ಬಾವು ಬಸಿರ ಬಂದು ಹಿಡಿದಡೆ 
ವಿಷವೇರಿತ್ತಯ್ಯ , ಆಪಾದಮಸ್ತಕಕ್ಕೆ
ಹಸಿವಿಗನ್ನವನಿಕ್ಕಿ ಉಳುಹ ಬಲ್ಲೊಡೆ
ಆತನೇ ಧರೆಯೊಳಗೆ ಗಾರುಡಿಗ.–(ವಚನ .) 
“ಅನ್ನವೇ ಬ್ರಹ್ಮ”(ಉಪನಿಷದ್ )
ಅನ್ನದಾನ ಮಹಾದಾನ.ಅನ್ನವನ್ನು ಸೂರೆಮಾಡದಿರಿ.
ಹೊನ್ನನು ತಿಂದು ಬಾಳಲು ಸಾಧ್ಯವೇ ?
ಬದುಕಲಿರುವ ಬಾಯಿಗಳಿಗೆ ತುತ್ತು ಬೇಕು 
ಅನ್ನದಲಿ ಮಣ್ಣನ್ನು ಕಲಸ ಬೇಡಿರಿ ಅಣ್ಣಗಳಿರಾ…
“ಸಾಕು ಎಂಬಂತೆ ನೀಡು ಬೇಕೆಂಬ ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆ
ಬೆಣ್ಣೆ ಎಣ್ಣೆ ಎರೆಯ ಬನ್ನಿ ಹಸಿದ ಹೊಟ್ಟೆ ನೆತ್ತಿಗೆ.”(ಬೇಂದ್ರೆ )

Restore The Oceans To Their Former Glory.

We have  already destroyed  many marine ecosystems

and driven  million-year-old species to the

 brink of extinction. The things we can do to save the oceans:

1.Eat sustainable seafood.

2.Reduce energy use. Carbon dioxide from burning

fuels is making our oceans more acidic.Corals are lost

 on a global scale, as their calcium skeletons are

weakened by the increasing acidity of the water.

 3.Use reusable plastic products. Plastic debris

in the ocean degrades  marine  habitats and contributes

to the deaths of many marine animals.

4.Properly dispose of hazardous materials.

5.Don’t use commercial fertilizer in gardening

or agriculture.If the excess ends up in water,

it results in dead zone. 

6.Pick up garbage and litter near beaches.

7.Buy ocean friendly products.Avoid cosmetics

containing shark squalene and jewelry made of

corals  or sea turtle shell.

8.Electing the right public official is essential

to  good ocean policy.

Destination

If we sail our boat in the direction of  blowing wind,

we can save our boat but we cannot reach our destination.

If we select a wrong path, thinking that the road is fine,

we can move far but  we cannot reach our  destination.

Buddha Preached

Cultivate your tongue in speaking good.

Cultivate your mind in thinking  good.

Cultivate your body in doing good.

Such cultivation of senses  act like our

 friends and relieve us from miseries in life.

Light a lamp inside you.

A trained horse does not  get beatings.

One who has a cultivated mind, does

 not require  any outer preachings for

becoming a good human being.

Only a well- trained  elephant goes to

participate in war.It  beares the 

 beatings by the swords in war-field, patiently. 

The benevolent humanbeing  is the one who

has  cultivated his  mind to patiently tolerate 

 the evil words of others.

ಜೀವನ ದರ್ಶನ

ಸಪ್ಪೆ  ಉಣ್ಣುವಾಗ  ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ  ಉಪ್ಪು  ಬೇಕೆನಿಸುತ್ತದೆ.
ಉಪ್ಪು ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದ ಬಳಿಕ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಸೊಪ್ಪಿನ ಸಾರು ಇದ್ದರೆ
ಚೆನ್ನ ಎನಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಅದೂ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದ  ಬಳಿಕ ತುಪ್ಪವೇ  ಬೇಕೆಂಬಾಸೆ .
–ದಾಸ ವರೇಣ್ಯರು.
ನಿನ್ನೆಗಾಗಿ  ಕಣ್ಣಲ್ಲಿ  ನೀರು  ಸುರಿಸುವವರಲ್ಲ.
ನಾಳೆಗಾಗಿ ಬಾಯಲ್ಲಿ ನೀರು ಸುರಿಸುವವರಲ್ಲ.
ಇಂದಿಗಾಗಿ ಬೆವರು ಸುರಿಸುವವರು  ನಾವು.
–ದಿ.ಶೇಣಿ ಗೋಪಾಲ ಕೃಷ್ಣ  ಭಟ್ಟ.

Agriculture

It is said that in olden days, people used to carry

money in purse and bring  home commodities in

gunny bags.But now we are carrying money in

big suitcases and bring home commodities in purses.

Why like that? Price of commodities are increasing and

 the value of money is decreasing. Shortage of 

 production is the reason. Agriculture is the best

answer for the solution of many of our  problems.

 An agriculturist never dies of hunger. He only

commits suicide  when  he  cannot get fair

 prices for his products and as a result  fails

 to repay his debts. Another problem we are facing

is rise in the price  of  gasoline. The oil geologists  must

search for  reserves of  crude oil below the surface of

the earth. Agriculture  and mining give employments

 to  many and also money.
