MYLAPORE – MY BIRTH PLACE :

BHARAT DARSHAN – DEFINING INDIAN IDENTITY – MYLAPORE – THE TOWN OF PEACOCKS

 

The Tamils called it ‘ MAILAPUR ‘(town of peacocks), Mailiga Vandha Voor(town where peacock offers worship) and in Sanskrit it is known as ‘MAYURPURI’. Greeks called it ‘ MALIARPHA ‘ and the Portuguese called it ‘ MELIAPUR ‘.Finally, the English called it ‘ MYLAPORE ‘. It is a known center of human habitation for thousands of years. Even before the birth of Jesus Christ, the Tamil Saint Poet Thiruvalluvar lived here.He conveyed his noble thoughts in the form of poems and his work known as ” THIRUKKURAL ” can rightly be claimed as a gift of God to mankind. I am happy to present some poems translated into English by Shri.J Narayanaswamy.

10. KINDNESS IN WORDS

91. Sweet words laced with love, free from 

deceit, are the gift of the enlightened 

92.Saying sweet things with a smile, is as 

good as munificence of a kind soul 

93.Earnest words from the mind, conveyed 

with a smile, have virtue in them 

94.The woe of unfriendliness does not afflict 

those who instil mirth by sweet words 

95.Those adorned with modesty, speaking sweet 

truths do not need other decorations 

96.Pursuing virtue in the goodness of 

fruitful words, vanishes harm

97.Graceful words of kindness

yield fruitful good deeds

98.Sweet words free from deceit, afford

pleasure to life and fame beyond it

99.who perceive seeds of goodness in sweet

words have no mind for harsh things

100.None having ripe fruits relish raw ones; who will

speak harsh when sweetness can achieve good.

Please feel free to spread those sweet words which took birth in MYLAPORE.

Kapaleeswara Temple
This landmark Temple of Kapaleeswarar binds me to my birthplace of Mylapore, Madras(Chennai). The Presiding Deity of this Temple is my personal Protector and hence I am “RUDRA.”
