Welcome to Warrier's Daily COLLAGE December 15, 2020 Tuesday Music Aisa Desh Hai Mera... https://youtu.be/wDheWYmNEhQ (Link courtesy: Ramesh Warrier) 🙏 M G Warrier Restoring TRUST in Governance : India's 2020's Challenge https://www.amazon.in/dp/B08NT36GB2/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_hBmYFb7PBYR0M Today in Collage: Lead Story: Col R Hariharan Quote for the day: "Don't the perfect be the enemy of the good. Lower the bar. Actually spending ten minutes clearing off one shelf is better than fantasizing about spending a weekend cleaning out the basement" -Gretchen Rubin Lead Story by Col R Hariharan* I will be completing 85 in March 2020. My parents good deeds perhaps, (I can't remember doing much good deeds, having dealt with gun runners, thiefs, traffickers, smugglers, double agents and wasting time on analysing their deeds in the most productive years of my life as a Military Intelligence Officer ) keeps me in reasonably good health, mobile, agile (compatible with the age of course) with small reminders of pain that tell me I am not as young as I imagine. I am a compulsive writer, I make it a point to write almost everyday. My blog has 750 entries in 15 years of its existence. I keep writing to keep my wits about, than to impress the readers. So I am really not keen to find how many hits my articles score. I write mostly to ward off the vagabond mind, looking too much inwards to become narcissistic. These days I have started writing articles on strategy in Tamil to challenge my Tamil writing skill in providing Tamil inputs on matters military. Every morning I walk (I used to run, not jog, till 62), but now Covid has made walkers look like aliens; when I see another senior citizen or young friend crosses, they just nod in recognition. Some defy the norms and go without a mask, perhaps to catch up with their karma! The landscape has lost much of the colour as all of us are masked to look like zombies. I have to confess I haven't thought about the maker; my relationship with god has been that of a bad neighbour. We appear to be avoiding each other. Of course, when the time comes, I may meet him but by then it doesn't matter to me.
