Warrier's Collage 03112020 : Excerpts

Welcome to Warrier's Daily COLLAGE November 3, 2020 Tuesday Your daily share of inspiration, writings - by you, for you : Curated by MG Warrier Prayer https://youtu.be/j3Wz4_X7_Jo (From Isavasyopanishad) (Recited by : M S Subbulakshmi) Music https://youtu.be/zwsc1rVdPxA (Aajkal Tere Mere Pyaar Ke Charche...) (Link courtesy: Ramesh Warrier) Quote for the day: " "An American monkey, after getting drunk on brandy, would never touch it again, and thus is much wiser than most men." Charles Darwin Friends, Collage doesn't take any responsibility for the above quote attributed to Charles Darwin. In fact, it contradicts his own theory which made Darwin famous. M G WARRIER A Interaction 1) V S Rangasayee Mumbai "Nice one for today(November 2). I think you are fond of Aditya Hrudayam Sloka, I remember having you quoting it often in mails." ( I've faced dead ends, similar to the situation in which that Mantra was chanted by Agastya in Ramayanam on more than one occasion. And could get up and continue my assignment (Karma), as if nothing happened. I love the presentation of the Mantra and the Message it gives-Warrier) 2) Vathsala Jayaraman Learning from experience (October 31) "Regarding Shri Subbaraman's interaction I wish to say that this was the modus operandi in many of the village households during those days.The cheating came from one's own kith and kin. My husband's great grandmother born in 1850 was managing the household. Her husband was always travelling to Kaashi with a brass pot and a bundle of dhoti. As the travel was by walk, for a trip it will take nearly 8 months.The brilliant lady stood against all opposition and enmity. She had only two acres of land. With her personal supervision in land nobody could cheat her and she was able to develop her property from two acres to 20 acres within ten years. She was really very smart and no one could open their mouths. Many youngsters learnt appropriate lessons from those grandma's reg standing against strict opposition from erstwhile zamindars who never liked others to come up in life. Vathsala Jayaraman" 3) R Jayakumar "I felt happy to read Dr Prabha Ramadurai appreciating the song 'dil hoon hoon kare' from the film Roodali sung by Lataji. I too loved this song very much and had purchased an audio cassette for my music library. It was always tempting to offer some response to songs appearing under Music in the collage. But stopped doing it because there are others who love and appreciate music better than me and they may not like the way I respond. But now after reading Subbaraman Sir's advice on responding, I feel one must write freely what is in the mind without bothering what others may feel about what we write. After reading the section 'Paying Back to the Society', I remembered a forward I had received earlier on how we can pay back in small ways. The same is copied below: "GOD'S WIFE" A little boy of 10 was standing before a Shoe store, barefooted, peeping through the window and shivering in the cold. A lady approached the boy and said, "My little fellow, why are you looking so earnestly at the window?" "I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes ", boy replied. The Lady took him by hand inside the shop. Asked the clerk to get a pair of shoes and half a dozen socks. She took the little fellow to the back side. Removing her gloves, she knelt down, washed his little feet and dried them with a towel. She put the socks and shoes on his feet, tied up remaining socks and gave him. She patted his head and said, "My little fellow, you feel more comfortable now?" As she turned to go, the astonished lad caught her by the hand and looking up in her face, with tears welling in his eyes, asked, "Are you God's wife?" In fact, all of us are, literally and figuratively, God's spouses, children, friends... because God has no hands and he uses the hands of all of us. Let everyone who meets you say, "Are you God's messenger? " today. You may or may not be declared a Saint by the Pope, but when you love and show it in simple loving actions, you are indeed a Saint in God's books. God cares for people through people. So...do whatever good you can, with whatever you have, wherever you are.
