Corporate Bodies!

Part-2

Now let us look into the ills, the society faces on account of corporate bodies’ presence. Can the corporate stand as a panacea for all that are unwell? No, the corporate bodies never care about what goes on around. Their eagle eyes aim  only at profit making and expanding their business empire, as they have been and are pro-profit entities. The corporate heads live in glass houses embedded in luxury and lavishness. They are bothered the least while acquiring the possession of people staying nearby for launching companies or inflating their business. Nor do they show any clemency to extent any aid to such people. They have hesitation naught to crush down all that blocks their fervor.  
           
 There are corporate houses  that are seldom bothered about the goings-on around.  The atmosphere entirety becomes polluted as the corporate allows emergence of smokes to Air, disposes waste to land and water. And the waste from their produces stays about without rotting, injuring the purity of the environment. Health hazard is a vicious issue amidst the people residing nearby.

The corporate shouldn’t act blind in all those situations. They should keep their eyes wide open to learn the impediments that the people suffer from. They should do the needful to recuperate the harm and hurt brought by them to the inhabitants of the terrain.

Since the corporate employees draw remuneration at high rates, their spending ability goes high affecting the prices of goods which often mark inflation. Expansion of land cost, expense of building construction etc. nip the yen of men to have an own residence, in the bud itself.  Education becomes a twin sibling of corporate, as quality education is available only in self-financing institutions. Therefore good education remains as a discontented dream for the common man. 

Another main factor is, as it is said in its commencement, is lack of time on the part of corporate employees. While they immerse their heads in laptops, their offspring spend their babyhood in maids’ laps or in crèches. The corporate staff do not experience the exquisiteness of sunrise and sunset. They cannot enjoy rains or chills. They don’t have time enough to eat well, sleep snug and even bathe neat. Human relation’s warmth dies in the heart, rather being killed in the heart.  Here we should understand that  life does not mean only money.

  Corporate Heads should value the lives of their staff as there is only one life for both the heads and subordinates. As is stated earlier the children are deprived of their parents’ patting and pampering, since the time waits for none and instead waves it goodbye to all. Such children, the tomorrow’s citizens may not understand the warmth of human liaison and when they grow up their old age parents may be left uncared.  And moreover act they may against the interest of the country due to scarcity of patriotism. 
 
Citizens’ paramount affairs like family rapport, recreation, housekeeping, communication with kith and kin, merging with the society etc. will flee the environs and vanish from the vicinity. People lead a mechanical mode of life with little cognizance about the occurrences around. What the corporate should do is they should employ more persons for each job, i.e. the load will get distributed among more people lessening the employees’ weight of their physique as well as psyche.

The case in point is that a job with two employees can have three or four and the amount earmarked for two’s salary may suffice for three or four, provided it is not too measly. The staff will obtain a life good to live in spite of the fact that their take home salary becomes a little less.

 The corporate bodies should consider the staff’s family life too, so that their satiated souls will find ease in working more efficiently. Peaceful mind of the employees will love their companies wholeheartedly and work earnestly with full spirit; the advantage will lie with the company only. The quality and quantity of a companies’ produce will then undoubtedly mark significant updation and upgradation. A strong bond among kin of the staff, will lead to family link, extended family relation and social communication and eventually the Nation will become the utmost beneficiary.

Corporate Bodies!


Part-1

 ‘The toddler is screeching at the highest pitch of its voice seeking the mother’s presence. The loudness in fact pierces the ears of the child- minder, despite the latter’s all the exercises to set the kid calm. Mother reached home late by one hour more than the usual. She is working in a corporate concern. Every now and then it so happens while the tender mind tends to await its mother’s entry after a long severance from morning till night. The mother is a staff in a corporate company.’

I have quoted this paradigm just to express the predicament one faces being a part of corporation. What the corporate bodies do is in fact extracting the juice of their employees. At the same time they are the main sources of revenue for people. Let’s now have a scrutiny over the pros and cones of corporation which forms the backbones of almost all the nations now.

 The Corporate Body signifying here is a business concern owned by a single man or a group assisted by a board of directors. Families’ survival in general revolves around corporations.  I have heard many a man blindly speaks ill of corporations in our country. Corporate bodies are often titled ‘Corporate Monsters’, the income bagged from them by the employees is enormous though. The journey of people seek  posh four wheelers, their slumber wants outsized mansions and their households come from classy shops and all these happen because of the corporate cash in their account.

  Many of the families’ survival itself will become a question mark, until unless at least one member is a member of a conglomerate. Lately it has become a dream for youngsters to get into a corporate organization to fulfill their ambition for a luxuriant life. And they feel that their goal is reached when they see offer letters for the job of their option very fervent. On an evaluation of the merit-demerits of corporate bodies, we come across both benefits and barriers, though not in the same style.

Let us now ponder over its advantages which no doubt we experience in a great deal. The youths, when reach the conclusion of their education, rather before its completion even, see themselves land in some corporate jobs.  The recent trend is that companies grab the youths from campuses, unlike the period prior to corporate propagation, when they had to desperately hunt for a career. So the education lately becomes a fail-safe affair as far as obtaining an employment is concerned. At the finishing point of each Month, astounding amount of pecuniary benefits surge to the employees’ bank accounts. In such situations, who is there that hates corporate service?

Corporate employees ‘progeny obtain their education from elite institutions on account of their financial status, even if the IQ level of the former is slightly dim. Higher studies are no more a nightmare for want of fund. Self-financing Schools and colleges spurt up like grasses in soil after rains. And they too provide plentiful jobs to people all over.

 Trades of various natures both petite and fat run straightly or obliquely on the roads built by corporate economy. Generating fund for existence has gained ease when compared to the time, two or three decades ago.

Corporate employees’ dependability on various other skilled workers such as domestic help, ironing man, gardener, milk man, driver and so on provides the latter ones to make both ends meet. Since the corporate employee draws a striking salary, it flows to the society in diverse ways influencing the lives of many. As the society’s buying competence is much more than earlier, the shopping also has augmented at numerous places hiking the benefit of shop people. Here we can see that corporate companies become instrumental to bounteous residences’ livelihood. Rareness of revenue has shrunken extensively, the result a decline is noticed in poverty level as a whole. The outer shell of residential areas in totality has attained a refined look.

The conglomerates’ existence amounts to the advancement of infrastructure of surrounding areas so that one can make use of a trouble-free accessibility. Snag in obtaining indispensables peters out, as goods of all sorts become easily available.  If we mull over the gains we acquire from corporation, they are no doubt profuse. Though the critics contempt the corporate, abandoning of this culture after its cultivation in sizable scales today, will instill carnages in society.

മണികണ്ഠസ്വാമി , അവിടുത്തെ ചരിതങ്ങൾ !



മണികണ്ഠസ്വാമി, അവിടുത്തെ ചരിതങ്ങൾ
ഓർക്കുമ്പോൾ  മനസ്സുകൾ നിറഞ്ഞീടുന്നു.
അവിടുത്തെ  പാദങ്ങൾ സ്പർശിച്ച  മലയാളം
ചിന്തിക്കിൽ  പുണ്യമാം  ഭൂമിതന്നെ.

പന്തളരാജ്യത്തിൻ രാജശേഖര  രാജൻ
വേട്ടയ്ക്കായ് പണ്ടൊരുനാൾ  വിപിനേ  ഗമിച്ചു.
അടവിതൻ നടുവിലായ്  ശയിച്ചൊരു ബാലനെ
സ്വന്തം  മകനാക്കി  മഹാനാം  രാജൻ .

ദൈവത്താൽ ലഭിച്ചൊരു  പൈതലിനെ റാണി
അരമനയിൽ  വാഴിച്ചു   മകനായ് തന്നെ.
പ്രിയമുള്ള രാജാവിനും റാണിയ്ക്കും പൊൻമകനായ്
വസിച്ചു  കൈവല്യമായ് രാജകുമാരൻ.

കണ്ഠത്തിൽ  ദിവ്യമാം   മണിയതിൻ കാരണം
മണികണ്ഠൻ  നാമത്തിൽ  അറിയപ്പെട്ടു.
 ആനന്ദം   നൃത്തമാടി  കോവിലകത്തിങ്കൽ
ദിവ്യകുമാരൻറ്റെ  ആഗമനത്താൽ.

ഫലിച്ചൊരുനാൾനന്നായ് മന്ത്രിതൻ  ഏഷണി 
വലിയ വ്യാധിയാൽ വലയുന്നെന്നു റാണി.  
പോറ്റമ്മതന്നുടെയസത്യമാം  ദീനത്തിനു
പുലിപ്പാലൗഷധമെന്ന് കൊട്ടാര വൈദ്യൻ.

ആശങ്ക അല്പവും കാട്ടാതെ മണികണ്ഠൻ
ആരണ്യകം  പുൽകി  പാലിനായി.
സന്തോഷം  തുളുമ്പുന്ന സുന്ദര വദനo പേറി
പുലിമേലേറിയവൻ ആഗമിച്ചു.

വിസ്മയം  കീഴടക്കി  പരിവാരാoഗങ്ങളെ
മാലോകരെല്ലാരും  കൈകൂപ്പി നിന്നു.
മണികണ്ഠൻതന്നുടെയാവശ്യം  നിറവേറ്റാൻ
 മലമേലൊരാലയം  പണിതു രാജൻ.

ശബരിനാമത്തിലെ  കാനനക്കുന്നിൻ മീതെ
 വസിപ്പാനായ്  അയ്യപ്പൻ  യാത്രയായി.
തീർത്ഥാടനകാലത്ത് ഭക്തജനസംഘം
ദർശനം  ലഭിപ്പാനായ്  കാത്തു  നിൽപ്പൂ .

 നിബിഡമാം വനത്തിലെ സാലവൃന്ദങ്ങൾപോലും
ഭക്തിയാൽ മിഴികൾ കൂപ്പി ചാഞ്ഞു  നിൽപ്പൂ.
മന്ദസമീരനും ഭക്തിയാൽ  നൃത്തം  ചെയ്‌വൂ
പക്ഷികൾക്കാലാപനം ഭക്തി ഗാനാമൃതം  .  

മറ്റുള്ള ലതകളും  അവിടത്തെ സന്നിധിയിൽ
ആനന്ദനടനം ചെയ്തു ചാഞ്ചാടി നിൽപ്പൂ.
  മക്കളെ  ഉറക്കിയ  അമ്മ വസുന്ധര
 പ്രഭാതേ ഭഗവത് നാമം   മൂകമായ് ജപിയ്ക്കുന്നു.

മണികണ്ഠസ്വാമി , നിന്നിലെ   അദ്ഭുതം 
വർണിയ്ക്കാൻ  വാക്കുകൾക്കാവതുണ്ടോ!
അവിടുത്തെരൂപം അകതാരിൻ ദർപ്പണത്തിൽ
 എപ്പോഴും തെളിയുവാൻ വരം  തരണേ.

 ഞങ്ങൾതൻ ദർപ്പത്തെ മായിച്ചു  കളയുവാൻ
പവിത്രമാം പതിനെട്ടുപടവുകൾ ധാരാളം.
ഊണിലും ഉറക്കത്തിലും അവിടത്തെ സ്മരണ പേറി
തേടുന്നു ഞങ്ങളിതാ അനുഗ്രഹങ്ങൾ.

Quietude!



Often hear, we calm and quiet,
Silence and peace or rest and sleep.
 But nowhere, we see any of them,
 But witness in fact,
 Hustle and bustleand unrest and clash
 And sure a race hurried for cash.

Tired we are of blast and blare,
Smoke and fumes and dust and dirt.
Around we when observe,
One thing we can recognize;
Travels, silence to distance
From the homo-sapiens.

Seem they busy, engaged they become,
Occupied they act and freedom theirs zero.
Moms of children on heels and wheels
Have to skip from kitchen to office
And pops go away from tiny kids
Far on tour from time to time.

Having time seldom to converse
Part with contact, the dear and near.
Shrink visits, triumph mobiles,
And spoiling the calm prevalent here
Pageantry and pretense,
With pleasure dwels in society.

Open, faithful and such values
Have fled the globe in fuss.
Ah! Yes, go to the huts in village
They stay there with hitches nil.
Fondling follows frowning there
And that too with a touch of quietude.

All about New Year!



 Assigning duties to all, the master, Time
 Holding our hands with consoling concern
Had, in the past journeyed with us,
 By crossing the fields of farming and meadows
 Mantled with bushes, grasses and trees
Clad in dazzling and pleasing lush green. 
            
Sliding while through hillside pastures 
And crying over the scarlet of rivers' water 
Which once was plain as glassy prisms
And occurred that now on greed of man,  
Led us, Master with blemish naught
 To eye-blinking and mesmerizing life, bright.
                                                                            
In all these actions, the Nature’s accord
With Beings all types- sizes and ages,
Discard one cannot and this truth vivid
Help us have the  feeling  of triumph 
And  don’t know we, further where
The screen is to put on show our life's episodes.
  
The future impending and  fast reaching 
Has been set right already for display 
As the Master is taking off His torn garments
That were worn hopefully in seventeen
To put on stylishly his new costume 
 Designed for celebrating two thousand eighteen.

 He will garland us with blooms of new year
With warmth in heart and smirk on lips
And it is us to celebrate its birth cheerily
And make preparations apposite for its delight;
 And dream let us for a life full of feel and zeal
And march merrily to the imminent  eighteen.


May you all have a merry festival and an amusing Two o eighteen.! God bless all.

എന്നുടെ പ്രിയ ജനനി!

'My most loved 'Amma' is no more. While musing over the reminiscences of the glorious past that we, her progeny spent with her, a few lines as  verses flowed down from my mind. I feel I am paying homage to my beloved 'Amma'. .


ഉദരത്തിൽ  കുഞ്ഞുങ്ങൾ  പിറക്കുമ്പോൾ  സ്ത്രീ  നെയ്യും
 പുതുസ്വപ്ന  ദീപ്തിതൻ നൂലിഴകൾ .
അതിനൊരു  വ്യതിയാനം  കൂടാതെ  സ്വപ്നങ്ങൾ
എന്നുടെ ജനനിയും  നെയ്തിട്ടുണ്ടാം.

കുസൃതികൾ  തീർക്കുന്ന  കുഞ്ഞിളം  കരങ്ങളും
പിച്ചവെയ്ക്കാൻ വെമ്പും  പാദയുഗ്മങ്ങളും
എന്നുടെ  മാതാവിൻ  ഹൃത്തിനെ  നിറയ്ക്കുന്ന
മധുരമാം അനുഭവം  ആയിരുന്നു .

 ഭക്ഷണം കഴിപ്പിയ്ക്കാൻ , സമയത്തുറക്കുവാൻ
പിന്നിലായോടി   തളർന്നിരുന്നു.
വദനത്തിൽ പുഞ്ചിരി  തെല്ലുമേ മായാതെ  
മക്കൾക്കായ് മന്ത്രിച്ചു  പ്രാർത്ഥനകൾ.

മക്കൾ വളർച്ചതൻ  പടവുകൾ കയറുമ്പോൾ
എന്നമ്മ  ആനന്ദം  പൊഴിച്ചിരുന്നു .
സന്താന ഭവിഷ്യത്തെയോർത്തുള്ള ആധികൾ           
നൊമ്പരം  ഉള്ളത്തിൽ നിറച്ചിട്ടുണ്ടാം.

ഉന്നതിയാൽ ഉല്ലാസം മക്കളിൽ ദർശിയ്ക്കാൻ
  മോഹിച്ചു മാതാവിൻ  മനമെപ്പോഴും.
 സന്താന സന്തതിതൻ ഇംഗിതം  മാനിയ്ക്കാൻ
സ്വന്തം   വിഷയങ്ങൾ  മറന്നിരുന്നു.

അച്ഛനു പ്രാമാണ്യം ഊനംവിനാ നൽകി
മക്കൾക്കും പ്രാധാന്യം തുല്യം തന്നെ.
മക്കൾതൻ പ്രവർത്തിയിൽ അനിഷ്ടം നിറയുമ്പോൾ
ശാസിയ്ക്കാൻ അമാന്തം കാണിച്ചില്ല. .
 
മക്കൾ മുതിർന്നപ്പോൾ  ചിറകും  വിരി ച്ചങ്ങു
ദൂരത്തെ  ദിശനോക്കി പറന്നുപോയി.
ഇടയിലെ  ആഗമനം  മിഴികളിൽ  തെളിയുവാൻ
വരാന്ത ഓരത്തു  കാത്തിരുന്നു.

ഗൃഹസ്ഥരാം  പ്രിയമക്കൾ ഗേഹേ അണയുമ്പോൾ 
തിളങ്ങുന്നു അമ്മതൻ  ചിത്തം നൽപ്പായ്.
അവരുടെ  മോഹങ്ങൾ  നിറവേറ്റിനൽകുവാൻ
നല്ലോണം ശുഷ്ക്കാന്തി  കാട്ടി   മാതാ.

വാർദ്ധക്യം  വലനെയ്തു  അമ്മയെ  കുടുക്കുവാൻ
ഒരുനാൾ  അതിലമ്മ  വീണു  പോയി.
കരചരണം ചലിയ്ക്കാതെ  കുഴലിനാൽ  കുരുങ്ങി
 കിടക്കയിൽ  ശയിക്കുന്ന ദൃശ്യം  കഷ്ടം.

സൂചികൾ  കയറുന്നു  രുധിരം  വമിയ്ക്കുന്നു
 സീമയ്ക്കതീതമായ് വേദനയും.
മാതാവിൻ  രോദനം  ഉച്ചത്തിൽ  മുഴങ്ങുന്നു
 മക്കൾ  മനമുരുകി  നിലകൊള്ളുന്നു.

പൊടുന്നനെ  ജനയിത്രി  വദനം  പിളർക്കുന്നു
അന്തിമ  ശ്വാസത്താൽ   വിടചൊല്ലുന്നു.
അമ്മതൻ  സ്മരണകൾ  ഒന്നൊന്നായി അണിചേർന്ന്
 കവിളത്തു കണ്ണീരാൽ  ചാലുതീർത്തു.

വാർദ്ധക്യം  അണഞ്ഞാലും  മാതാവിൻ  വേർപാട്‌ 
താങ്ങുവാൻ  മക്കൾക്കു ശക്തിപോരാ.
എന്നുടെ  പൊന്നമ്മ  വിളങ്ങട്ടെ  ഗഹനത്തിൽ
തിളങ്ങുന്ന  താരമായ് എക്കാലവും.

Deep Dark!






Sinking into deep
 Dark, beings close eyes for sleep
And awake I am.

 With my book open
Sit, I, to read the next half
With a smooth mood now.

 Candles emit light;
Smells bright, coffee in mug, have
Desire for a sip.

 Night, her dress, washes
 In rain; spreads and leaks through the
  Window, its black hue.

Gaining energy
Fresh, Wind runs fast too far for
 Exploring places.

Shrub peeps in, through the
 Window and passes a
 Lovely smile to me.

 Seeking the bed, fall
Into slumber profound, Moon
And his little pals.
