How much you have earned from them?" To that frank enquiry I replied thus: "Occasionally, someone unknown to me calls and says: "I read your such and such book and I found it nice" and that is my earning. "Writing the book itself is the reward." May several calls come to you from unknown people! My health is getting poorer. Quite natural. ****. **** (Many Thanks for the blessings. As regards earning from writing, I never thought of investment in books from income angle. For me, it's the fees I'm paying for learning new things. Incidentally, today, there are cost-free publication possibilities. I chose cost-sharing option to ensure that my book becomes available for those who are interested in getting it. Prayers for your better health. We need your support and guidance, for which you have to remain healthy and active-Warrier) 2) Dr Duvvuri Subbarao' "Dear Shri Warrier: Many congratulations. Restoring trust in governance is a much under-appreciated pillar of growth and stability. This has been the central thesis of all of Fukuyama's writings. It's great that you have taken it up. My best wishes for the success of the book and indeed of all your endeavours. Keep writing and best regards. Subba" (Respected Sir, Many Thanks for the blessings. I expect that at least some youngsters will wake up and pick up the idea and take it forward. Our generation didn't do justice to trust. The trust, freedom fighters invested in my generation. We brought down even the Unit TRUST of India, by infusing trust deficit(Reference to the UTI is just symbolic)-Warrier) 3) R Jayakumar "Hearty congratulations for the publication of your third book 'Restoring Trust in Governance' by the Notion Press. Today I placed an order with Amazon to buy a copy for myself. Wishing you success for publishing more such books. It must have been a very long and tiring job to write and get it published without a Secretary or manager to help you. If you are positive, everything works for you. 💐." ( Many Thanks. Yes. Great relief for me. At some stage I was regretting having taken up the project. Now, though with some deficiencies, the book will take care of itself-Warrier) 4) S M Sendil, Chennai Congratulations to you, dear Warrierji, for your energetic endeavours in writing and publishing your third book 'Restoring trust in governance' which I wish will be widely read bringing you satisfaction.

It requires innovativeness. The OM and CROSS sign business is interesting. In the late 1940's white sugar was being sold on the platforms in Bombay. The stuff was going cheap - on anna per lb. A Marwari was selling the sugar at one and quarter anna per lb. By his side, a Sindhi was selling the same type of sugar at only one anna per lb. Naturally the Sindhi trader made a fast buck at that. By evening, he had sold more than five sacks of sugar, as against hardly one bag of sugar by the Marwari. In the evening, the Marwari called the Sindhi and asked him, 'What is the fun in selling the sugar at cost price? Both of us are getting the stuff from the same wholesaler. " "Yes, I have sold the sugar at cost price. But the gunny bag gives me Re.1 when I sell it to the wholesaler back. I have made five rupees today only by sale of the empty gunny bags! That is my earning today. " That was some good amount those days. Subbaraman" D. Ashoka Edicts V Babusenan on Àshoka edicts "We hear the happy news that T.N.Krishna, the stormy petrel of Carnatic music has transformed a few famous Asoka edicts into songs. The edicts are so beautiful that I quote here a part of one edict from 'The Glimpses of World History:' "All sects deserve reverence for one reason or another. By thus acting a man exalts his own sect and at the same time does service to the sects of other people." Asoka ruled between 268 and 232 BCE. His wise words lay buried for several centuries until they were deciphered in early 19th century. Had they been known earlier, India would have been perhaps a better place to live in." E. Uncleophobia Dr T V Surendran, Mananthavady "Vathsala Jayaraman's "uncleophobia" was interesting reading. Being a Paediatrician, I used to be addressed by patients with..... Sir,. Uncle, doctor -sir, and of late, after I discontinued using hair dye, my little kid patients started calling me Achacha (grandpa). Nowadays I like it more than uncle ... may be a senile unclophobia?"
