    :hello: Message Mesmerise Me :hello:

    A message in right time with right people in right tone uttered at right place always carries heavy weight in the recipients’ mind. Not uttered by any Tom, Dick & Harry would have that riveting edge.
    A soldier ran over the hills at a distance of 22.7 miles from a battle spot at Marathon to Athens - delivered the message of victory - “ REJOICE, we conquered!” And HAVING SAID THAT fell down at that instant died of exhaustion.

    A telegram received when I was still at my teens got me nervous and my mom too. Dad was caught in floods in Amritsar during third week of the month when we were awaiting his message of having mail transferred amount to bank for our monthly expenses.

    I asked delivery post man would be any disturbing message. He looked over the pink folded paper pasted at its edge and said it should contain harmless message as there is only one X stamped over it. He added further that if it was affixed as treble X-as
    XXX - then it is sure sad death message when Mom & I had a long sigh of relief.

    After my engineering, I was awaiting response to my numerous applications sent to many corporates and medium size companies. One afternoon a telegram was delivered, when too my mom was scared as my dad was still camping in North. It was X labelled wire from chief of a local manufacturing plant to call a number for fixing interview at his plant. My first interview for position design engineer for manufacturing jigs & tool.

    In modern digital era, messaging is child’s job. In contrast, during those days young ones wrote message in piece of paper and drop it in girls school shoulder cloth bag!
    Messages with printer’s devil, sometimes makes for hilarious moments and even save convicted from gaol or noose. A child can send a message to Mr. Sundar Pichhai seeking job in Google .

    A governor in British India dictated a telegraphic message - “ hang him(.) Not repeat not leave Him (.)”. But at the place where hangman was waiting to tighten the noose around the neck of convict, superintendent received telegraphic message as “ hand him not repeat not(.) leave him.
    The convict was set free.

    When president Kennedy was assassinated, mrs Kennedy from limousine stood up and loudly cried “oh! No” , this message spread world wide. When Armstrong landed on moon said, ‘ a small step for me: but a giant leap for the mankind” . This message too became very famous andstands today as the highest altitude message.

    An editor keen for increasing circulation and sale of his morning news paper used to ensure that sensational news always carried ahead of others in his daily. He stationed his reps near the site and cause accidents to happen. The moment the act of accident carried out, he would get message in his secret chamber. The sensational news with embellishments prepared and kept ready would immediately get printed in the morning edition.

    Once his rep from an hospital communicated to editor that vip had expired. His morniger carried its obituary column of that prominent man in detail . His paper was the first and last to break the news. But later it was found the vip had not expired. Next morning his paper carried out apology front page for wrong reporting and that was the day that man in hospital died and the other news papers competing with his had broken the message at appropriate time.

    This I am sure trigger your memories of “The News” authored by yesteryear Arthur Hailey.

    But then you might wonder why all this proem about “message”.


    Have a look at my name banner just above this message to its right. The figure against no of Messages posted - nearing 5000 .

    Yes you had seen it. Would it be not a great idea to celebrate with a Cine song in lilting voice with scintillating music “CHITTI AAYI hai” in the link below



    A milestone attained in about two and half years of membership with constant support, encouragement, meaningful feedbacks with riveting phrases from fellow IL’tes. Sincere Thanks to all followers, moderators, staff in @IL_Admin, senior citizens, Mothers & sisters, daughters too from bottom of my heart .

    Sincerely Yours
    THYAGARAJAN.

    HAPPY MOTHERS ‘ DAY.

    :hello: Thank you for your thoughtful response which is like finding an “oasis” in a vast desert.
    2. I stand in awe & am quite impressed with your acknowledging it - having seen the “message”- in an absolute delight manner.

    3. How do you know that I love listening Carnatic and that too the particular composition by Arunaacalakavi in his Ramanataka kirtana (describing the story of Rama). Without any proem, Maruthi With lots of concern for His Lord’s decides to be on the dot and get to the point without any prevarication to the announcement of his discovery of His consort.

    4. This song rendered usually in Vasantha or mukhari.
    5. I often for therapeutic and healing value listen in meditative voice this particular song rendered in by fourth generation singer Isai Peroli Bombay Jayashree in the link below:



    Regards.
    God Bless.
