That peculiar sounding thing is a Tamil word, the first of a Very famous poem,
நாமார்க்குங் குடியல்லோம் நமனை யஞ்சோம்
நரகத்தில் இடர்படோம் நடலை யில்லோம்
ஏமாப்போம் பிணியறியோம் பணிவோ மல்லோம்
இன்பமே யெந்நாளுந் துன்ப மில்லை
தாமார்க்குங் குடியல்லாத் தன்மை யான
சங்கரன் சங்கவெண் குழையோர் காதிற்
கோமாற்கே நாமென்று மீளா ஆளாய்க்
கொய்ம்மலர்சே வடி இணையே குறுகி னோமே
by a sage named Thirunaavukkarasar,
whose first line has become a saying: Naamaarkkum kudiyallom, namanai anjom.
[ Seems Very hard to find men of courage, who can speak their mind against Injustice and Tyranny in India these days. ]
Going back to Our sage, he had been commanded to present himself before the king, to which he had responded:
I am nobody’s subject.
Meaning he served god alone.
To give credit, he is not the only one who was bold.
Let us Salute Gandhiji, Martin L King, Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela, to name Just a few.
A (Zen) master was told by a king(?) …Don’t You know i can run You through? To which the Master had replied: ‘Don’t You know i am one who is Ready to be run through?!
I shall Always remember and salute The Man in front of the Tanks.
Unlike these Lynchers who HAVE to be in groups to beat up lone men.
Seems Very hard to find men of courage, who can speak their mind against Injustice and Tyranny in India these days.
I don’t thnk ANY of Us (Bloggers) would be ready be Subject to somebody. It takes some doing to remain that way. But in these days of So-called Democracy, We have to make the Masses understand this. That takes plenty of doing, too! 🙂
It seems some momma told her (grown up) child living abroad and phoning her, that putin was a god.
And what has putin done? After getting all those Mega bucks out of Oil, etc, started paying the pensions and made sure the peasants had enough to eat. …modi is doing at least the second (though it is not even enough). This has been enough for the Majority of #russia and #India. A bag of grain Though the foot is on the Neck/Head.
And that is being a Subject, a gulaam, a sheep of George Orwell.
Let’s say: Not for Me!
