One represents danger and the other represents opportunity." – John F Kennedy More quotes at G B Interaction 1) C V Subbaraman Mysuru It is good if BL chewing has decreased. It will keep the walls of many public places clean! Gutka is a banned item in many States, rightly so. One would welcome it. All the chewers should first try to spit on the walls within their houses and try continuing it!! Modiji will not have any problem in implementing successfully the Swatchha Bharat. Subbaraman C V Dr T V Surendran Mananthavady adds: " Not the betal leaf, but tobacco, Is The Villain." (Remembered my Nagpur RBI days. It was not easy to convince the guest security staff -Armed Police- positioned inside the Security Areas that the Red & Brown Paintings they were attempting on the walls using herbal natural colours mixed with own saliva, were not being appreciated by RBI staff and that is why the walls were repainted more frequently. In some cases persuasion worked-Warrier) 2) V N Kelkar Art of storytelling: "Once upon a time"... On hearing these words, my five year old granddaughter would immediately tell me "there was a poor farmer" "and at the end they lived happily ever after". She would ask me to switch to another story as she knew that story. The story telling is an 'art'. It requires creativity, vision and skill. A bedtime routine helps children in developing language, curiosity and imagination skills. Its better still to read a book simultaneously with many pictures/ illustrations to make a good impact. The practice of storytelling is prevalent in every culture and society. There is no bar of language, place etc. It's universal. We can create a story based on our experiences. Stories aim at inspiring and motivating the reader/listener. They are educational and entertaining as well. If we make a story, it should have a beginning, middle and an end. A story should have a conflict, emotions, hope, despair, anger, suspense, drama and resolution of the problem. Using pitch, pacing and pausing, children will be stimulated and the teller can expect questions. The art of storytelling can be mastered with practice. The storyteller and the listeners develop a strong bond. Happy storytelling experience. The link* did not open on my smartphone.

Regards, Chittanandam (Thanks, Chittanandam. Collage will be grateful to you for the kind gesture. 🙏 Such gestures benefit all of us and the society in general. Please see SV's forward at F1 today-Warrier) Babusenan responds: "Dear Shri Chittanandam, Shri. Warrier has kindly sent to me a copy of your message figuring, inter alia, my story: 'The Picasso of Appan Nagar '. I am glad that you liked the story and am indebted to you for your large-hearted ness to share it with your friends. With warm regards, V.Babusenan" (Multiplier effect of Multimedia!-Collage) 4) R Jayakumar About Interaction As Mr Chittanandam has said, everyone should be amazing at the skill of Mr Warrier to design his daily Collage covering a variety of subjects. But this can also make some feel jealous of his skill, the ones like me. Whether one really opens and reads the Collage or not, the purpose seems to be to keep all in touch. That is quite true, no matter whether we know or not, who is on the other side. Mr Chittanandam regularly forwards to me interesting articles in Tamil, personally, and I enjoy them. I have also indicated vaguely to him what is my taste and what I approve of, in life. But till date I am not sure if he is a member of EXRBITES Group or even an ex-employee of RBI and if so where did he work and what was his grade when he retired! We are in friendly touch through exchange of mails. I too dislike financial and banking matters and so rarely touch them. But the Interactions and personal views expressed through this column by the readers, I never miss to read. So also the occasional inclusion of poems in the Collage. I never miss to send him an acknowledgement by posting a Good Morning message. Great work and well executed. Thank you, MGW... R Jayakumar (Thanks. You give alms without waiting for someone to beg! You are too generous, Jayakumar, I know-Warrier) C Economic Growth What was prophesied by Analysts in April 2020 The prospect of zero economic growth and the role of confidence" https://www.livemint.com/opinion/quick-edit/the-prospect-of-zero-economic-growth-and-the-role-of-confidence/amp-11587040911385.html D Readers' Contribution 1) V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram Gilbert & Sullivan Gilbert & Sullivan was a famous partnership in the world of operas during the Victorian era. Together they produced fourteen very popular operas. Gilbert wrote the plays and Sullivan provided the music. Of the duo, Sullivan was the younger, but he predeceased Gilbert. He died in the dead of night and so the outside world did not know of his death. In the early hours of the morning, some passer-by, who was an admirer of Sullivan, saw light in the house. He became curious and asked the watchman at the gate: "Is Sullivan still composing?" Pat came the reply: "No, Sir. He is decomposing." 2) Sri Chakra Lingeshwar Temple Borrowed from Badrinarayanan's mail: The temple Sri Chakra Lingeshwar is situated in a small galli of Hanuman ghat on the banks of Ganga. It is close by to Shankara mutt. Srichakram is depiction of Devi and her address where she is! Shiv depicted in lingam together as one! B Chandrasekharan adds: The uniqueness of this temple is that the Linga which has been installed here has the Sri yantra embedded on it. This temple had fallen into ruins for many years. In the year 1936 when Kanchi Kamakoti Maha Periyavar Sri Sri Chandrashekhara Saraswati visited Varanasi on a paada yatra, he identified this temple from the ruins and said that Sri Mutthuswamy Dikshitar stayed there with his guru Chidambaranatha yogi and the latter’s jiva samadhi was beneath the Shiva linga. It was Chidambaranatha yogi who gave the Sri vidya deeksha to Dikshitar and bestowed him the deeksha naama Chidanandanatha. This was performed in Varanasi. Kashi is a seat of knowledge. Chidambaranatha yogi not only gave deeksha of Shodashakshari mantra, but also taught Veda and Vedanta or Upanishadic aspects. This is very well reflected in all his compositions and that is the reason Dikshitar’s compositions cannot be understood easily. Mutthuswamy Dikshitar stayed here for about six years doing Sadhana along with his Guru. In fact it was here that Dikshitar was exposed to Hindustani music which resulted in adopting few ragas like Dwijawanti, Yamunakalyani, Hameerkalyani and etc. to Karnatak music in the latter part of his life. Srichakram is depiction of Devi and her address where she is! Shiv depicted in lingam together as one! What a great treat! And that too with history of muthuswami Dikshatar and periyava visit.

How to convert obstacles to opportunities" https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/dvgsblogs/how-to-convert-obstacles-to-opportunities-28338/ Posted online comments. Copied below: M G Warrier "simple things told in more simple language. some may feel the writer is telling the obvious. but repeating right positive things has its own impact on the human mind. i liked the observation: \" the pure victory of mankind arises from overcoming hurdles and changing obstacles to opportunities. no roses are there without thorns. who puts our limitations? we only! donâ t get stuck when we face hurdles in our life. try to explore the opportunities in that hurdle.\"' F Leisure 1) S Venugopalan Cheñnai How to remain happy Hormones which determine a human's happiness. As I sat in the park after my morning walk, my wife came and slumped next to me. She had completed her 30-minute jog. We chatted for a while. She said she was not happy in life. I looked up at her sheer disbelief since she seemed to have the best of everything in life. "Why do you think so?" "I don't know. Everyone tells I have everything needed, but I am not happy." "Then I questioned myself, am I happy? "No," was my inner voice reply. Now, that was an eye-opener for me. I began my quest to understand the real cause of my unhappiness, I couldn't find one. I dug deeper, read articles, spoke to life coaches but nothing made sense. At last my doctor friend gave me the answer which put all my questions and doubts to rest. I implemented those and will say I am a lot happier person. She said, there are four hormones which determine a human's happiness - 1. Endorphins, 2. Dopamine, 3. Serotonin, and 4. Oxytocin. It is important we understand these hormones, as we need all four of them to stay happy. Let's look at the first hormone the Endorphins. When we exercise, the body releases Endorphins. This hormone helps the body cope with the pain of exercising. We then enjoy exercising because these Endorphins will make us happy. Laughter is another good way of generating Endorphins. We need to spend 30 minutes exercising every day, read or watch funny stuff to get our day's dose of Endorphins. The second hormone is Dopamine. In our journey of life, we accomplish many little and big tasks, it releases various levels of Dopamine. When we get appreciated for our work at the office or at home, we feel accomplished and good, that is because it releases Dopamine. This also explains why most housewives are unhappy since they rarely get acknowledged or appreciated for their work.Once, we join work, we buy a car, a house, the latest gadgets, a new house so forth. In each instance, it releases Dopamine and we become happy. Now, do we realize why we become happy when we shop? The third hormone Serotonin is released when we act in a way that benefits others. When we transcend ourselves and give back to others or to nature or to the society, it releases Serotonin. Even, providing useful information on the internet like writing information blogs, answering peoples questions on Quora or Facebook groups will generate Serotonin. That is because we will use our precious time to help other people via our answers or articles. The final hormone is Oxytocin, is released when we become close to other human beings. When we hug our friends or family Oxytocin is released. The "Jadoo Ki Jhappi from Munnabhai does really work. Similarly, when we shake hands or put our arms around someone's shoulders, various amounts of Oxytocin is released. So, it is simple, we have to exercise every day to get Endorphins, we have to accomplish little goals and get Dopamine, we need to be nice to others to get Serotonin and finally hug our kids, friends, and families to get Oxytocin and we will be happy. When we are happy, we can deal with our challenges and problems better. Now, we can understand why we need to hug a child who has a bad mood. So in order to feel more and more happy day by day ... 1.Motivate ourselves to play and have some fun Endorphins 2. Appreciate others for any small or big achievements Dopamine 3. Inculcate sharing habit through you to others -Serotonin 4. Hug your family, friends...... -Oxytocin That's the reason why at 60 we need to spend as much time as possible with our Friends & Family Have a Happy Life Courtesy Diwakar Corporation Bank 2) Great Expectations* Two things to remember in life: 1. First one : People are not so bad as seen on 'PAN-Card' and 'Aadhar Card'. ... And are not so good looking as seen in 'facebook' and 'whatsapp'. 2. Second one : Men are not as bad as their wives think. ...And not as good as their Mothers think. Male criteria for life partner : They expect their women to Look like "Miss Universe" and Work like" Kanta bai" Females' criteria for life partner : They expect their man to earn like ...Ambani & behave like Manmohan Singh. *Forward received from T J Kurup Thiruvanantapuram G Quotes about Crisis Management TOP 15 CRISIS MANAGEMENT QUOTES | A-Z Quotes" https://www.azquotes.com/quotes/topics/crisis-management.html
