001. Solitude. Alexander Pope. Appreciation Poetry 7th Mar 2011
Short URL http://nut.bz/281k669t/

Alexander Pope was born a Catholic in the Protestant England, was forbidden to live in the London City and had to pay a double taxation. Moreover, he was suffering from a series of diseases. To combat these handicaps, he possessed more than the courage of a lion. His poems were acrimonious attacks on society, and in a few cases they were against authority. He mentioned names in his poems, leaving dashes which his contemporaries happily filled in, to the embarrassment of his adversaries.




002. Sophist. A poem by P S Remesh Chandran. Poetry 8th Mar 2011
Short URL http://nut.bz/oth.p1gi/

The ancient Sophist saints of Greece were exceptionally clever with the use of their tongues. Don't play with them; they can bind us cunningly with their tongues. And don't corner them; we will never forget what we get in retaliation. Here in this poem, one such sophist saint is being tried in Court for a crime when the Judges get stung. The classical sophists were well-versed in paradoxes. The Judges in the Trial Court fail in understanding the real meaning of what the saint said.




003. The Forsaken Merman by Matthew Arnold. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism. 13th Mar 2011. Short URL http://nut.bz/1ljtosiw/

Matthew Arnold has been a severe critic of Literature. Essays In Criticism was his monumental work in which he let no great poet go unscathed. Usually such critics would be asked a common question: why don't you write a great poem? This poem The Forsaken Merman was Arnold's answer in which he proved not only could he create poems of hilarious themes but could incorporate a number of exquisite tunes also in a single poem. After creating a few more poems he returned to Criticism and Academics.

004. The Leech-Gatherer. Wordsworth. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism 15th Mar 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/134a-2vx/

William Wordsworth's poetry has no style because Nature and Life has no style. The perfect plainness of his poems gained him popularity. He mostly wrote about Nature and Man and is considered the world's greatest Nature Poet. The world was very late in recognizing his merit. However, Glory found its way into his grave. The Leech-Gatherer is the universal symbol of Eternal Human Labour.




005. The Lake Isle Of Innisfree. W.B.Yeats. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism 16th Mar 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/19ed-hvz/

Poets are accused to be unrealistic day-dreamers who are given to fancy. Day-dreaming and fancying all do and take off, but only a few can safely land also. W.B.Yeats was a perfect poet who could do both. Not many have expressed fancy in beautiful words as he did, and fewer still have reminded the world of it's duties and responsibilities as effectively. This poem has always been a sensation among the poetry-reading public.




006. Leisure. W.H.Davies. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism. 16th Mar 2011
Short URL http://nut.bz/qp4j6ml6/

Man is always eager to observe and enjoy the beauties of nature. Only that he does not get enough spare time to elate and thrill his mind by soaking up the magnificent spectacles Mother Nature has created around him. It was in the midst of and from these beauties that man was created. Therefore his wish to be with them is only natural. When he leaves them behind, he pines in his soul as if leaving his homeland.




007. Song To The Men Of England. P.B.Shelley. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism 18th Mar 2011. Short URL http://nut.bz/21kpi-9l/

A revolutionary is a person who causes constant changes around him wherever he is. In this sense, Shelley was a revolutionary poet. Song To The Men Of England opened up world's eyes to the torture, brutality and exploitation workers were subjected to in England during the time of her colonial prosperity and raised the question: Why can't we revolt?


008. Stopping By Woods. Robert Frost. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism 19th Mar 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/eslzz8m7/

Nature creates many beauties for man to observe, but man being burdened with the multitude of tasks to run a family cannot spare his time for sharing the pleasantness nature imbues. In his rush of life he is forced to abandon the easy solaces nature offers which if accepted, would have served as a balm for his mind in flames. Robert Frost's poem Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening shows a glimpse of what treasures man has lost. True, what man forgets first is the beauty of his mother.


009. Two Famous Death Poems. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism 21st Mar 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/evi23ktc/

Death is the end of all earthly cares and the beginning of eternal things. It is believed that the moment we die, we are born in another universe. With it begins a new way of being. More number of songs and poems are written on death than on birth. It is considered an important event in man's life. In many communities all over the world, death is an occasion for festivity and celebration. Shakespeare's Fear No More and James Shirley's Death The Leveller are appreciated here.


010. Leave This Chanting. Tagore. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism 22nd Mar 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/1zdohpx2/

God was the most beautiful creation of mankind, created in man's exact likeness, one playful, lovely and comely. So why not love him ardently and affectionately and respect him beyond everything as the creator who decided to stay? Tagore's poem Leave This Chanting has universal appeal, the appreciation of which is presented here by P.S.Remesh Chandran, Editor, Sahyadri Books & Bloom Books, Trivandrum.




011. No More Hiroshimas. James Kirkup. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism 23rd Mar 2011 . Short URL http://nut.bz/c-q37yc7/

Mankind hates to destruct, in spite of the destructive traits inherent in man. In his heart, man is a good being who likes to preserve mankind's achievements intact for the posterity. But politics is often not led by men, but by mobs and crowds. Wars when fought by single persons have always turned to be good to this world: Socrates, Tolstoy, Louis Pasteur. When fought by people, they turned hell loose in this world.




012. The Creation Of Man And Woman. Kahlil Gibran. Recast in True Poetic Form. Poetry 8th Apr 2011 . Short URL http://nut.bz/i7sjvwju/

Kahlil Gibran is mistakenly considered to have written his poems in free verse or blank verse but actually he was hiding his exquisite tunes behind a mask, so that the dull wits and half wits of his times won't attempt to sing them. Songs from his immortal work Tears And Laughter are fine examples of a poet locking out his lines. Two poems from Tears And Laughter, Creation Of Man and Creation Of Woman are presented here, slightly edited and recast in the true poetic form by P.S.Remesh Chandran.

013. Song Of The Rain. Kahlil Gibran. Recast in True Poetic Form. Poetry 11th Apr 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/lbv9utb9/

It is alleged that Kahlil Gibran hid his exquisite tunes behind a mask of blank verse to prevent the dull wits and the half wits of his times from enjoying his songs. This song is for the first time recast in the true poetic form by Sahyadri Books & Bloom Books, Trivandrum so that all the world may sing. It is expected that beautiful orchestrations of this immortal song will follow from other quarters of the world.

014. Song Of The Wave. Kahlil Gibran. Recast in True Poetic Form. Poetry 15th Apr 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/12biqfdd/

The sea, clouds and waves and the ever patient shore are a wonder to the new born babe, the steam engine like youth and the old man who is like a fading sunset. This energetic, thrilling, restless dame that is the ocean is shy and submissive to only one, her eternal and beloved lover, the shore. Their unending love story which has been going on and will continue to be so through the ages is presented here in the true poetic form.

015. A Poet's Death Is His Life.Kahlil Gibran.Recast In The True Poetic Form.Poetry 15th Apr 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/5lvc_3ta/

This poem is Kahlil Gibran's tribute to all human souls dying uncared for in this world. It is perhaps the most majestic portrayal of death in poetry. Gibran designed this poem as a psychic black hole of immense gravity which continues its journey through the abyss of time, consuming human souls on the way.

016. Are Our Women and Children Safe in Our Hospitals? P.S.Remesh Chandran. Essays  23rd Apr 2011 . Short URL http://nut.bz/26v_0o9d/

Doctors like to think that they have immunity against crimes they commit on human lives caused by their ignorance, negligence and dereliction. This true story from India illustrates how unsafe the lives of our women and children are in our hospitals and how incapable and submissive are governments towards crimes by the blue-collared in India.

017. The Lotos-Eaters. Tennyson. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism 24th Apr 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/1f8a7337/

The great veil of Victorian hypocrisy was lifted by Alfred Lord Tennyson and was shown to the world the lovely English mind behind it that was his. The Lotos-Eaters is the world’s greatest poetical experiment synchronizing sublime music with the changing moods and fancies of the exotic, psychedelic intoxication of a band of marine soldiers marooned on an island that nowhere existed.

018. Waterloo. Lord Byron. Appreciation. Poetry 26th Apr 2011
Short URL http://nut.bz/3.ub8mva/

The maps of Europe were drawn and redrawn many times during the Eighteenth and the Nineteenth centuries. Countries became nations and empires which in no time were reverted back to nations and countries. It was not uncommon for people of those times to lay down spoons and forks in the dead of night and take muskets and pistols to brave war. Lord Byron in his famous poem portrays such a scene from the European arena.

019. The Patriot. Robert Browning. Appreciation. Poetry, Drama & Criticism 13th May 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/1i9q667s/

Browning was a skilled poet, an expert in creating frantic situations in poetry. In the Pied Piper of Hamelin it was mysterious loss of all children from a town due to a word not being kept. In My Last Duchess it was killing of a long line of innocent duchesses by a jealous duke, the story being told without even presenting a second character. In The Patriot, it is adoration by people immediately followed by chaining, dragging through the streets, stoning by crowds and execution in the gallows.

020. The Indispensable Opposition. Walter Lippmann. Appreciation. Essays 15th May 2011 Short URL http://nut.bz/js8.djla/

A must read for all who love mankind and human speech. An apt admonishment from a long-gone American writer whose great eloquence and excellent arguments in favour of the liberty of speech is once more brought to public attention. His bold opinions are dire predictions which help envision the rise of China as the most oppressive tyrannical rule in the modern world. Going through the article we will wonder whether it is China’s story told 50 years in advance.

Poems are made of human thoughts. They are the spontaneous, natural outflow of emotions evolving from close and objective observations of the things and circumstances around us. Since human mind carries a bit of cosmic world inborn in it, it cannot prevent itself from rising to elations at the revelation of truth at moments of discovery. How to create and write poems has been an eternal question, the answers to which occupies a considerable portion and major status in philosophic literature.

Short URL http://nut.bz/.ajc3xow/

Human beings are born far earlier than when they are ripe to be delivered. If they are retained inside mother body till sufficient growth, the child cannot come out due to large head size. So it has been arranged that they come out early when the head is comparatively small, and remain an invalid infant in the outside world for a very long time, compared to the relatively short infancy of other mammals. That is the price human beings pay for their higher intelligence among the mammalian world.

A dog’s barking is one of the ugliest sounds in this world, but there are people who enjoy it as sweet music-the psychiatrically deranged in our society. At the expense and peril of mankind, they make laws placing dogs above man and god so that they can continue uninterrupted with their carnal pleasures with their dogs.

Robert Lynd is famous for his essays of wit, wisdom and humour. Here he is writing ‘in praise of mistakes’, how they are useful and how they are enjoyable to the world. It is his opinion that it is difficult to write something without slipping somewhere. Mistakes do not interfere with our enjoyment of a writer and the only unpardonable sin in an author is writing uninterestingly. This Irish genius who made us laugh shared the world with us during 1879-1949.

Omnibus was the old name for a bus. When city buses were newly introduced in the London streets, they were uniformly coloured chocolate. Robert Lynd disliked them for their colour which was dull and non interesting to the eyes and also because they deprived him of the delights of walking. Like A.G.Gardiner’s Bus Conductor, Lynd’s Chocolate Bus reminds us of the many virtues which are leaving us one by one. And buses too may say farewell to us just as row boats did when bridges came into being.

044. Knowledge And Wisdom. Bertrand Russell Essay. Reintroduced By P.S.Remesh Chandran.  10th Feb 2012. Short URL http://nut.bz/1kqrxzyw/

Bertrand Russell was a British philosopher who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950. Roads To Freedom, Principia Mathematica, Marriage And Morals, The Conquest Of Happiness, etc, are a few of his famous writings. Here he distinguishes between and defines knowledge and wisdom. Life experiences of a person process his knowledge into wisdom. Knowledge, comprehensive vision, pursuit of purpose, emancipation or freedom and impartiality in opinions and views are what constitute wisdom.

045. The Emerging World Society. Dr. S. Radhakrishnan. Essay Reintroduced By P.S.Remesh Chandran. 11th Feb 2012. Short URL http://nut.bz/2tge_ko-/

A few recent leaders of India, who are neither writers nor philosophers, are fast bringing about laws to curb the use of international social media by the people of India. They are furious over the speed and completeness with which their clandestine favouritism and corruption are brought to daylight each day. It is really the Internet which brought the world people together. It is time these fools read what the famous philosopher and former President of India wrote on The Emerging World Society.

046. Belief In God. Dr. A.J.Cronin Essay. Reintroduced by P.S.Remesh Chandran. 18th Feb 2012. Short URL http://nut.bz/2nh_co2x/

Whether God exists is a question people have been trying to answer through the ages. At least once in our life we are asked this question and have to answer. One interesting fellow once observed that if we are asked this question it is always safe to answer that He does exist, because if he does not exist we have nothing to fear but if He does exist, then we will have to fear his wrath and retaliation for denying him. It is interesting to note here what a famous doctor wrote in this regard.

047. Think Twice Before Publishing With Free Article Directories. P.S.Remesh Chandran. 2nd May 2012. Short URL http://nut.bz/33p2m1bq/

Online publishing platforms are a great solace not only to those who seek up-to-date and current knowledge, but for those who wish to publish articles without complications also. Websites like Wikinut serve this purpose fine. One can also publish articles in free article directories like Go Articles and E Zine which would surely bring traffic to one's website. But once a sensible writer steps into this alien field, he would soon realize that he has actually stepped into a treacherous bog.

048. Non-Violence. Aldous Huxley Essay Reintroduced. P.S.Remesh Chandran.
21st Aug 2012. Short URL http://nut.bz/238onx5a/

When national policies conflict, there is war. It always has been so, in spite of the world’s nations’ attempts to settle things amicably. Violence is the sister of war and mighty nations are not shameful to unleash violence on their next door neighbours, next day brothers. Non-violence has been the cherished dream of mankind since the first sunrise after the dawn of civilization. Even then the realization of this dream is remaining far distant due to psychological settings of the world’s mind.

049. Life Without Fear. Bertrand Russell Essay. Reintroduced by P.S.Remesh Chandran. 8th Oct 2012. Short URL http://nut.bz/s6rjyi46/

Fear is an ancient feeling of human beings, the right application of which saved mankind from taking too many risks and helped facilitate the continued existence of mankind. Actually fear is the essential pre-requisite to courage. But in the modern day world which is not as danger-prone as the ancient primitive world had been, man fears to even release his breath. World famous philosopher Bertrand Russell analyzes the operation of fear.

050. Rise Of A Star. Scenes From The Life Of Jesus Christ. Paintings Of James Tissot. P.S.Remesh Chandran. 28th Dec 2012. Short URL http://nut.bz/2nuw71e4/

In the modern day world, tracing the life of a great man is not difficult, for there would be photographs of his taken by contemporaries in his time. But what would we do to observe the life of a great man who lived among us before 2000 years? We have the only option of searching for paintings that may exist in castles, caves, churches, monasteries or archives. Luckily, to view the like of Jesus, we have a unique collection of paintings done by a single person, saved at a single repository.

051. The Healing Artist. Scenes From The Life Of Jesus Christ 2. Paintings Of James Tissot. P.S.Remesh Chandran. 31st Dec 2012. Short URL http://nut.bz/31l0a4s4/

Healing is an art, closely associated with divinity. We consider doctors who heal our diseases as gods. It is the learning and spiritual cleanliness of the doctor that heals the diseases in most occasions. To heal the sick, we needn’t possess the required conventional medical qualifications necessarily; the qualities of ardence and purity will do instead. The science and art of healing is closely connected with the word. Word here means, and applications and manifestations of sound.

Jean Jacques Bebel, the Swiss historian has calculated that in the 5000 years of the recent history of the world, only 282 years were devoid of any kind of wars. Peace is the brief interval between two wars. A shot sent at a visiting Prussian Prince and his wife by a young student at Austria, and the life of millions was shattered and the way of life of the world changed for ever. Horrors of the First World War were sung by thousands but Wilfred Owens’ poems were brought hot from the war front.

053. Doctors, Politicians, Bureaucrats, People and Private Practice. Documentary Essay. P.S.Remesh Chandran. 9th Feb 2013.  Short URL http://nut.bz/o8knr57t/

Governments’ banning the private practice of doctors has a history of 50 years, exactly as old as the abandonment of health and welfare of people by them. Wherever there are uneducated politicians and jealous bureaucrats, they share this common animosity and jealousy towards doctors. Bureaucrats retire at an age and politicians stop when party men stop following them. This hatred and jealousy stems from the right of doctors to practice medicine till the end of their days.

054. How Advertisements Help Pay Online Writers? P.S.Remesh Chandran,
17th Jun 2013. Short URL http://nut.bz/22dgj266/

One of the most widely read and visited online websites in the world, Wikinut, hosts advertisements in its pages. As a publishing platform which pays its writers out of advertisement revenue, ads are inevitable for maintaining the platform and paying writers. How much of advertisements and what kind of links and advertisements is a subject of debate, as with other publishing sites. The general consensus is, they do not go back in quality of adverts or lean on inappropriate ads.

17th Jul 2013. Short URL http://nut.bz/2b8ztc_w/

Well-written, informative and thoughtful articles are the ones that decide the future of a writer’s career.

056. The Last Bird From The Golden Age Of Ghazelles. P.S.Remesh Chandran.
17th Aug 2013. Short URL http://nut.bz/3dwnobim/

Music crosses borders of nations and oceans and reaches hearts of human beings in strange lands. God stands just behind those who sing, so close, that we will wonder who actually sings. Ghazals are Nature's wonderful creations in which the purest of passions, emotions and feelings are stored up so that grief-stricken human soul in loneliness can seek solace in it at any time as if in the presence of God. It is His ardence, affection and benediction once in a lifetime that flows through ghazals.

058. My First English Recitation Videos Took Thirty Years To Produce. P.S.Remesh Chandran. 30th Apr 2014. Short URL http://nut.bz/2t3az9i6/

Why do human beings sing? It is an act of sublimity, melting him beyond medium, transforming him to deliquescence and ardence, preparing him for the nearness of god. God stands just behind those who sing, such close that we will wonder who actually sings. The delightful souls dead and gone who designed this world want to speak to the world again through their poems. Recitation is where they reincarnate. No living poets shall ever have a place here. Their time will come once they are tested.

Storm and rain and hail and heat and sun shine are not dreadful things to plants. They are the turbulence which causes them to germinate, grow, flower, seed, fruit, wither away and again germinate and flower from seeds. Mankind also is in inimical storm and rain and hail, but civilization and culture won’t die away. The turbulence of our times is harmful to the fine flowers of our culture, but the agents of civilization- teachers- will see to it that they are protected in times of crises.

There are hundreds of educational channels in the world. Organizations like BBC, ABC and You Tube also have theirs. In India, since 1989, there are quite a number of government-owned and private educational channels. In Kerala also there is one- Versatile ICT Enabled Resource for Students, or Victers Channel, funded by central government and run by state government.

When some kind of disaster happens to a child anywhere in India, the entire womenfolk of India will weep. It is in their nature. Once a woman is a mother to one, she becomes a mother to all.

Mr. Nissim Essekiel’s poem ‘Night Of The Scorpion’ is a window into this a universal character of motherhood by featuring a typical scene from an Indian village in a rainy night.

Timber is one of the costliest commodities needed for from rail, ship, bus and bridge building to houses and furnishing them, available unfortunately only in timber producing countries. India, especially the densely forested state of Kerala, has an abundance of timber which rots away in depots since when the manual auction of old days was replaced by electronic auction, due to the carelessness and indifference of state forest officials. The loss of revenue on this account comes to billions.
