Remember - Our duty is to do good to humanity
Translation of the beautiful Sanskrit poem on the left, hereunder.

Let us always remember,
Let us repeatedly speak out:
Our duty is to do good to humanity.

Let us not focus on material pleasures
Nor lay in the lap of luxury;
Let us be awakened always that
Our duty is to do good to humanity.

Let us not enumerate our sorrows
Nor constantly reflect on our happiness
Let us step up to take action:
Our duty is to do good to humanity.

Let us sail over oceans of misery,
Let us scale mountains of difficulty.
While roaming through the jungle of adversity,
Our duty is to do good to humanity.

Be it a dense forest of extreme darkness
Or surrounded by kith and kin
When we travel these paths,
Our duty remains - to do good to humanity.

मधुबन ख़ुशबू देता ह
Madhuban Khushboo Deta Hai
https://gurmeet.net/poetry/madhuban-khushboo-deta-hai/
Thanks in tons to Mr. Gurmeet for providing the following marvellous translation/interpretation/etc. in the above page.

Our lives are meaningful only if we share our joys with others, serve others and help them flourish.

Roman Script
Madhuban Khushboo Deta Hai, Saagar Saavan Deta Hai
Jeena Uska Jeena Hai, Jo Aauron Ko Jeevan Deta Hai

Hindi
मधुबन ख़ुशबू देता है, सागर सावन देता है
जीना उसका जीना है, जो औरों को जीवन देता है

Translation
A garden gives fragrance. An ocean gives rainfall.
Only he lives who infuses life into others.

Interpretation
We should help others selflessly, just like the oceans give us rain and air helps us breathe. Likewise, only that life is worthy which infuses life into others, without asking for anything in return.

Roman Script
Sooraj Na Ban Paaye To, Ban Ke Deepak Jalta Chal
Phool Mile Ya Angaarey, Sach Ki Raahon Pe Chalta Chal
Pyar Dilon Ko Deta Hai, Ashkon Ko Daaman Deta Hai
Jeena Uska Jeena Hai, Jo Auron Ko Jeevan Deta Hai

Hindi
सूरज न बन पाए तो, बन के दीपक जलता चल
फूल मिलें या अँगारे, सच की राहों पे चलता चल
प्यार दिलों को देता है, अश्कों को दामन देता है
जीना उसका जीना है, जो औरों को जीवन देता है

Translation
If you cannot become the sun, be a lamp.
Whether you get flowers or embers, continue walking on the path of truth.
Love expands our hearts, it offers comfort to tears.
Only he lives who infuses life into others.

Interpretation
If we cannot shine as brightly as the sun, we should shine gently like a lamp. In other words, we should not wait to do something big for others; even small acts of kindness are helpful. This line reminds me of a saying by Martin Luther King Jr: “If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

Roman Script
Chalti Hai Lehra Ke Pavan, Ke Saans Sabhi Ki Chalti Rahe
Logon Ne Tyaag Diye Jeevan, Ke Preet Dilon Mein Palti Rahe
Dil Wo Dil Hai Jo Aauron Ko Apni Dhadkan Deta Hai
Jeena Uska Jeena Hai, Jo Auron Ko Jeevan Deta Hai

Hindi
चलती है लहरा के पवन, के साँस सभी की चलती रहे
लोगों ने त्याग दिये जीवन, के प्रीत दिलों में पलती रहे
दिल वो दिल है जो औरों को, अपनी धड़कन देता है
जीना उसका जीना है, जो औरों को जीवन देता है

Translation
The wind blows gracefully, so that everybody may continue to breathe.
People gave up their lives so that love may continue to thrive in our hearts.
Only that heart is worthy which shares its heartbeat with others.
Only he lives who infuses life into others.

Interpretation
The last stanza has two inspiring examples of selfless service. First consider the wind, the sun, the air, the earth — these are bounties of nature that seek nothing in return. Then there are martyrs who sacrificed their lives to uphold principles of peace. They died so that love may continue to thrive among those who live. With our hearts full of thankfulness for both nature and fellow humans who have done so much for us, we must serve others.

மனிதன் என்பவன் தெய்வம் ஆகலாம்
மனிதன் என்பவன் தெய்வம் ஆகலாம்
மனிதன் என்பவன்..... தெய்வம் ஆகலாம் வாரி வாரி வழங்கும்போது வள்ளலாகலாம்
வாழை போல தன்னை தந்து தியாகியாகலாம்
உருகி ஓடும் மெழுகு போல ஒளியை வீசலாம்

ஊருக்கென்று வாழ்ந்த நெஞ்சம் சிலைகளாகலாம்
உறவுக்கென்று விரிந்த உள்ளம் மலர்களாகலாம்
யாருக்கென்று அழுதபோதும் தலைவனாகலாம்
மனம் மனம் அது கோவிலாகலாம்

மனம் இருந்தால் பறவை கூட்டில் மான்கள் வாழலாம்
வழி இருந்தால் கடுகுக்குள்ளே மலையைக் காணலாம்
துணிந்து விட்டால் தலையில் எந்த சுமையும் தாங்கலாம்
குணம் குணம் அது கோவிலாகலாம்


My own translation:
A man(human) can become God.
A man can become God.
If he(/she) keeps giving to others without any restraint, he can become a supreme philanthropist 
He can give himself entirely to the society like a Banana tree which is wholesomely useful
Like a Candle, he can melt himself completely, in order to give light to others

A heart which beats and lives for others can become revered statues one day
A heart which is open to embrace all can become beautiful fragrant flowers
When one cries seeing the suffering of any living entity, he can become a leader
Such an heart, such an heart can become a temple

If willing, deers can live happily in birds' nests
Paving a new path, you can find even a mountain inside a mustard seed
If you dare, you can withstand any load on your head
Such virtues, such virtues can become a temple

Just sharing hereunder my own words which I quote often in my posts/answers/etc.

அன்பே சிவம். பணிவே சக்தி.
பணிவே சிவம். அன்பே சக்தி.

Love is God. Humility is Power.
Humility is God. Love is Power.



"Everyone should act up to the motto: Help Ever, Hurt Never. Every educated person should engage himself or herself in selfless service to society with humility and a pure heart. All academic distinctions or even observance of spiritual practices are of no use if there is no love in the heart. Love and compassion are inherent in every person. Each has to share this love with others. Failure to share one's love is gross ingratitude to society, to which one owes everything. One should give one's love freely to others and receive love in return. This is the deep significance of human life." (Source: Click here)

I love the Clock Analogy given here and strive to act as per it, as much as possible. i.e. keep ticking on with your work - tick tick tick tick tick tick (like the second hand of a clock which is usually hardly noticed and not given much importance) - so that the minute hand (Bakthi) moves after a while, which results after quite a long while in the movement of the hour hand (Atma Viswaasam - Self-Confidence), and thus ultimately leading to SELF-REALISATION.


Preamble (to my humble request below):
You may please kindly ever remember the fact that each and every one of you (even if you are not using Azhagi OR even if you have not even heard of Azhagi even once since 2000) is a beneficiary of Azhagi free apps, day in and day out. I have explained as to how, in a crystal-clear manner, here - spread.html#beneficiary. Please read it without fail. In conjunction, please also read what benefited users say on the ease, speed, unique/special features and immense usefulness of Azhagi Windows&Android apps here, here (தமிழில்) and here.
A kind and humble request
Azhagi+ is a world-class, feature-rich, unique and peerless app (benefiting lakhs of users worldwide), provided to you absolutely free of cost with 100% free support. Despite my painful and chronic health problems (since 1987 or so), I, as an instrument of the Lord Almighty, am committed to Azhagi, spending hours and hours and hours in its development/enhancement/dissemination/etc., ever since its inception in 2000. Since many years, I have striven my best to not to watch TV, not to see movies, not to read newspapers, etc. I rarely go out of my home itself. I have worked ever so hard on Azhagi, burning the midnight oil many a times, working the whole night through too now and then (extending to the next day too occasionally). My Motto, as explained in this very page, is to spend as much time as I can on Azhagi free apps and Azhagi free apps alone, until I am destined to.

And, remember, not only my apps are 100% free but my support for them is also 100% free. When time permits, just visit Azhagi's Support Forum - https://www.facebook.com/groups/Azhagi - and expand all posts/threads to see all the comments and subcomments under a thread. You will understand the extreme lengths and breadths and depths to which I have answered queries of users of varied kinds (individuals, lawyers, doctors, teachers, students, temples, farmers, churches, NGOs, publishers, book-writers, translators, website builders, companies, commercial establishments, government offices, NPOs, singers, composers, directors, screenplay writers, meme creators, multimedia developers, videographers, NGOs, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc. - there are umpteen kinds of users), ever since the support group's formal activation. And, all this FOR FREE. 100% Free. You can keep on scrolling/expanding the Azhagi Facebook Group support forum webpage and it will seem never-ending. And, this is not the only place I have given support. I have given a whole lot of support (i.e. my time, health and energy) over Email, Phone, Whatsapp, Google Group, Facebook Messenger, etc. too. over the past several years. I have not expected anything from anybody, for myself, for all this.

So, as an user (esp. if you are a long-time user) OR as an immense beneficiary of Azhagi free apps OR both, kindly please effect on a regular basis, at least a few of my requests in the "contribute.html" web page given below, so that many more of the society get benefited, in much the same way you have got benefited immensely so far. Some of these requests do not take more than a second of your time to effect.
I reiterate - I am not asking any user any money in any way. I am not going to ask any money in the future too. I have not sought even donations from anybody so far. I do not host any advertisements either - in my site or in my apps. I do not earn anything out of my own too. My God-like better half only earns. I don't. I am not funded by anybody to do my work either. I am just an individual. So, as a mark of gratitude (not to me [an absolutely NOTHING entity] but to Azhagi apps), even if 1 out of 100 users, out of the lakhs of azhagi users around the world, can do their bit on a regular basis, with regard to my requests in the above web page, Azhagi apps' awareness can reach to lakhs more and be of immense benefit to them and the society eventually. Not only that. It will help me personally too, in reducing my work-load. As of now (9th Sep 2019), most of the users' queries are answered (in detail, many a times) by myself. Also, some of the queries are repeated (i.e the same query is asked again and again but by different users) and I have to repeatedly give/explain the same answer. I spend a great lot of time in dissemination works too. If more users become aware of Azhagi, most of the users' queries can be answered by other users itself. Most of the dissemination work can be done by the users itself. Thus, I can focus my invaluable time more and more on my Azhagi enhancement works alone which will boost my productivity tremendously. That will help me churn out newer versions of Azhagi apps at a further more faster rate, which in turn will help the society only eventually. So, please..... do the needful, with regard to my above requests.


"Gratitude is not only the greatest of the virtues, but the parent of all the others" - Cicero (106-43bc)
"Gratitude is the mother of all virtues" - G.K.Chesterton
"A noble person is mindful and thankful of the favours he receives from others" - The Buddha
"Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy." - Fred De Witt Van Amburgh

"யான் பெற்ற இன்பம் பெறுக இவ்வையகம்" - திருமூலர்

Please understand that I do value users' prayers immensely & enormously but as the Mahans say "Hands that serve are holier than lips that pray". So, that way, along with their prayers, whatever users do additionally, with regard to my above societal request, on a regular basis, I value them infinite times more than their prayers. Of course, I know that you might be already engaged in offering some free service of your own (using your own money, in every way). My hearty wishes to you in such free service of yours. But, in addition to whatever such free service you are doing, if you can carry out^^ the above requests of mine too (some of which will not take more than a second of your time) on a regular basis, society will remain further more immensely thankful to you. Thanks.
(^^) particularly when you are a beneficiary of Azhagi apps, day in and day out

And there are some who rave a whole lot to me (via email, whatsapp, phone, etc) on how Azhagi was useful to them/society but never share the same anywhere else on the net. Such rave private testimonials (which I have kept receiving in 1000s in the last nearly 2 decades) do not help the society in any way. My aim is that the society gets benefited as much as possible. Private testimonials do not help in that regard at all. At least, users can post## such rave testimonials in Azhagi Facebook Group. Such rave testimonials will help the search engines to readily list them during web searches. That in turn will help many more who search in the net to readily start using Azhagi apps since they would have got enthused a lot by reading such rave testimonials.
(##) Please post your testimonial as a new and separate post please and not as some comment in some already existing post.

Some users say that they do inform others about Azhagi orally (over phone, etc.) OR install Azhagi in some friend's system OR share a post from Azhagi Facebook Group in their own Facebook page. While all that is greatly appreciable, primarily, spreading the news of Azhagi apps in popular social media forums (Facebook groups, Quora, Whatsapp groups, Blogs, Instagram pods, Webzines, Youtube groups, Twitter lists, Tumblr groups, etc.) only has a wider reach, faster reach and far-reaching societal benefits. And, I am sure all are well aware of this 'known fact' already. Notwithstanding this primary mode, spreading the news of Azhagi apps in your own (if any) websites/blogs/youtube channels/instagram/facebook page/etc. is welcome too, of course.

Some users say that they have privacy concerns with regard to social media OR they wish to stay away from all social media (understandably). If so, do request other near/dear of yours who do not have any issues with social media to spread the news of Azhagi apps in them. As simple as that. In this regard, please read the preamble at the very start which states how everyone is a beneficiary of Azhagi apps, day in day out. So, even if any of your near/dear do not use Azhagi, they can/shall still spread the news of Azhagi. In your case too, there are various other avenues in which you can spread the news of Azhagi (apart from social media). I have listed them all at spread.html, for you to effect one or more of them, regularly. Hence, your privacy concerns can never be an excuse/deterrent to spread the news of Azhagi in social media. Further, please note that you can always UpVote/Share/Write/etc. anonymously in most social media. This is just for your information and nothing else. Otherwise, whether or not to have a social media account (even anonymously) is 'your prerogative' only, always.

Thanks a ton to all those who have done the needful, to whatever extent they can, with regard to my above societal request. But, I humbly feel that, your situation/health permitting, you all can opt to do much much more, on a regular basis, especially if you are a long-time user of Azhagi. That's what I truly and humbly feel (Sorry though, if you think that I am wrong to feel like that). Well, special mention needs to be made on Mr Sathiamoorthy sir, in this connection. Even at the age of 82 years, the moment I told him about Quora, he learnt about Quora and its operations on his own (within 3 or 4 days), and posted answers in both Tamil and Hindi Quora on Azhagi's operations, so that many more of the society get benefited. What an inspiration to the other users/beneficiaries of Azhagi! (esp. for the long-standing users, some having been users for even over 15 years!). Please see this facebook post and this facebook post for details on Mr Sathiamoorthy Sir's Tamil and Hindi Quora answers. Mr Sathiamoorthy sir still (as of 9-September-2019) remains the "very first and the only user" of Azhagi to write in Quora on Azhagi, though many other users knew about Quora many months/years back itself. Very very special and great many thanks to Sri Venkatesh Krishna (aka Krishnadasan) too, for "regularly" writing about Azhagi in his Facebook page. For instance, see this post. I admire Sri Venkatesh Krishna's generous heart.

Some of the users and near/dear (friends incl.) do not do anything at all with my above societal request, when informed of the same via Whatsapp, Email, etc. They just ruthlessly## ignore my request message completely (as though I did not send it at all) OR just send a positive emoticon as reply OR one-line of superlatives (as though that is what I sought) as reply. And, later on, they continue to send their regular forwards, opinions, etc. - on cinema, politics, business, so-called celebrities, etc. They even go further sometimes and repeatedly send information about their own books (which is for a cost) and request me to spread the news of such books OR send their stories/poems and request my comments on them OR send a youtube video created by their children and ask me to subscribe for that channel OR any such similar thing. I very much request such users and near/dear to at least kindly please desist from acting like this, even if you cannot do even a bit about my above societal request. I would still love you but my focus is definitely not on persons like you and the matters you send. My focus is only on those who, with gratitude, lovingly do something about my kind societal request above, on a regular basis. So, kindly please understand and co-operate. Even if you choose to do something about my humble societal request above on a regular basis, then also your forwards, opinions, request for comments on your poems/stories, etc. etc. are not welcome by me. Please remember that I am trying my best to focus all my attention on my Azhagi SatKarma, amidst some of my own self-distractions. I do not want any more additions to my self-distractions via your forwards (even 'good morning' messages and spiritual messages), opinions, etc. So, in either case (whether you choose to do something about my societal request above OR you choose not to do anything), the kind of matters which are okay for me to receive from you are only those which can be considered as really important, at a personal level. For example - address change, retirement, son going abroad for higher studies, marriage for daughter, any close relative reaching the divine feet, etc. Also, if ever you need any urgent help from me too, you may please contact me and I shall help you to whatever extent possible for me, if I am in a position to help you. Otherwise, I shall let you know my inability to do so. Thanks.
(##) What bemuses me utterly is that many of my users and near/dear quite often send forwarded messages which say that one should do good to society without expecting anything in return, Money is nothing; service is THE thing, Love for all is the highest, this and that, and that and this. But, the moment I place the above societal request, they go silent. Completely silent. Sometimes they go silent for days/weeks together too and thereafter, start the same routine of sending forwards/opinions/etc. I really do not know what goes in their mind to make them go dead silent, the moment they see my above societal request.

N.B. This page itself and particularly, this 'humble request' of mine was placed here only in 2019. If I remember right, it was just after I put up my announcement (an announcement like that for the very first time from me) in my contacts.html page. This was the time when I created a separate download page too for Azhagi+, for the very first time. Otherwise, Azhagi+'s download was just a straight donwload link in azhagi.com's home page. This separate download page became a necessity after 20 long years of Azhagi because of various reasons including the one involving these youtube video creators on Azhagi apps. Invariably (barring an exception or two), all these video creators do not tell the facts regarding the history of Azhagi apps. Almost all of them project Azhagi apps in such a way as to create an impression that it was not done by an individual but by some enterprise. They do this deliberately. Especially, they do not tell anything about the 100% free support offered by me, which is the primary concern for me. They ask subscribers to ask any doubt on Azhagi apps only to them (i.e the creators of the videos). Some of the video creators make it a point to see that they do not show the download page of azhagi.com in their videos. And more unethically, some of them take it a step further by giving 'direct link' to the setup.exe of Azhagi apps OR give a 'mediafire' link to them. I did write to some of these video creators, put up this notice in my contacts.html page and very much requested them not to do this but they just ignored my messages. Reason for this attitude of these video creators - I very well know, but I do not wish to write about the same here, as of now (Sep 2019). Some of you might be knowing the reason already. Anyway, all said and done, I greatly thank the Youtube video creators since they have helped spread the news of one or more aspects of Azhagi apps so that many more the society get benefited. God bless them. (“Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.” - Lord Jesus Christ). You can view links to all their YouTube videos at demos.html. Thanks.
