Thiruvalluvar vs Newton – Effort/Hardwork – C30

Hello all , I have been thinking for a while to discuss about 2 renowned persons . One was born in Tamilnadu and other person born in UK. First Person is a famous celebrated poet and widely one of noteworthy individual in Tamil literature and other individual is a World well-known scientist . The two doesn’t have any association, they communicated in their own dialect, Own style & Phrased it in their own way .

Poet expressions  in Tamil  being followed as a Standard Curriculum for School Students in Tamilnadu. Scientist’s law is explained in Physics for students. In my perspective, both are helping the future generation in their own way in Various Subjects.

The Famous Tamil Poet is Thiruvalluvar

The World famous Scientist is Sir Issac Newton

A snippet on Thiruvalluvar’s Thirukural  – 

Thiruvalluvar & Thirukural

Thiruvalluvar is a famous & celebrated poet in Tamil. He is famous for his Thirukurral which consists of 3 parts . It has 133 Sections , each consists of 10 Couplets explaining the header

  1. Arathupaal (Aram) – About Ethics – 38 Sections
  2. Porutpaal(Porul) – About Politics & Economics – 70 Sections
  3. Inbathupaal(Inbam) – About Love – 25 Sections

Thiruvalluvar’s birth assumed dated  from 4th century BC to 7th century CE . His birth place was said to Mylapore, Chennai and there were some researchers assume, he was born in Kanyakumari. Each and every couplet was a teaching to our life .

A snippet on Newton’s Three Laws – 

Newton & his three Laws.

Newton’s First Law states that an object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an external force.

The second law states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables – the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object.

The third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Hardwork –

Lets see in their style & uniqueness on what they say about Effort & Hardwork .

Thiruvalluvar on Hardwork  –

He wrote an excellent Couplet on Hardwork which was my favourite and I will be quoting here for discussion

Couplet in Tamil

தெய்வத்தான் ஆகா தெனினும் முயற்சிதன்
மெய்வருத்தக் கூலி தரும்.

Couplet in English

Though fate-divine should make your labour vain;
Effort its labour’s sure reward will gain.

Couplet Explanation:

Although it be said that, through fate or with the blessings of God, it cannot be attained, yet labour, with bodily exertion, will yield its reward.


Newton’s Third Law – 

I will be discussing only the Third Law here 

The third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Action here refers to Effort -> Effort to make something work -> Work to accomplish Something big -> To accomplish Something significant , Hardwork is required and Must ->  If “Action”  be considered as any piece of WORK ( HARDWORK ) to achive , then “Opposite Reaction” will be RESULT ( GOOD RESULTS ) . It simply rely on whether you are endeavoring to accomplish positive or negative activity . The more you amplify positively will yield you positive results and vice versa.

My perspective – 

I m really surprised that 2 famous individuals that has no connection said the same thing , may be in their own style and language , but the ultimate meaning they wanted to convey remains same . 

i.e., True Effort with Hardwork never fails and yield its result one day ! 

To Conclude, People can think SMARTWORK can give them success, Yes, you will get Success with your Smartwork , Absolutely no question about that, But will that sustain on the long run, I doubt that..

To make something SMART, we all need to work sometime Hard to make it SMART… Again Hardwork comes in to play , It will make sure the success sustains on the Long Run !!!!!!
