No prior registration was insisted. The registration starts at 10 a.m. and closes at 11.00 a.m. Registration: You have to carry original and a copy of Aadhaar Card and another identity card like driving license OR Passport OR PAN card. They will note down your name, age, address, phone number. Next you have to pay the cost ie. Rs.250 to the cashier and get the receipt. You will be asked to wait before the injection room. You will be called in when your turn comes and they check your B.P., Pulse rate. Then the vaccine injection (Covishield) will be administered. No pain of any sort. It is amazingly simple. Their service is exceptionally good. You will be asked to come again for the second shot after 28 days. You will be advised not to have non-veg food for next two days and alcohol for the next 48 days. The entire procedure is complete in an hour. Chandraiah" A Open House 1) Dr T V Surendran Mananthavady Thanks for the responses from Sri Jayakumar and Sri Babusenan. Shall convey to Dr.Premachandran. Small clarification on the number of undiagnosed cases. Recently the ICMR conducted a Sero- surveillance study in various states. Surprised to hear the results. ... For every diagnosed case of Covid in India, there are about 20 asymptomatic undiagnosed cases.( In Kerala, it is 5 or 6 only). The POSITIVE aspect of it, is that Covid mortality rate is less than the reported figures, while the NEGATIVE point is that we have more undiagnosed asymptomatic cases in our country. 2) V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram I am very reluctant to show my face in a discussion involving God. An anecdote in the life of Sri Ramakrishna comes to my mind. If I am mistaken, I stand to correction. Once Sri Ramakrishna was invited to attend a Bramo Samaj prayer session. He did not like their way of thanking God for everything. He said: "If you subscribe to the idea that God is our father and we are His children, where is the point in thanking Him for something He has done to please you? Does it not sound artificial?" (Collage will manage God's problems*. So long as there's no apparent effort to promote any particular God or "ISM", we can express our views. 🙏-Warrier) *Collage believes in the efficacy of Prayer. But does not promote any particular approach to faith/spirituality. To know more about the concept: https://www.speakingtree.in/blog/when-sri-krishna-arjuna-worshipped-lord-shiva 3) R Parthasarathy on Sanskrit Justice Markendey Katju delves deep into the glorious past of Sanskrit and reveals the non religious ( rational ) side of the language, in his speech delivered at Indian Institute of Science. Friends may find his views more appealing to modern times. He takes too many digressions and makes too many postulations while maintaining his thread of argument unhindered. https://www.outlookindia.com/website/story/sanskrit-as-a-language-of-science/262393 R Parthasarathy 4) Balasubramanian Coimbatore Wondering as to what is the driving force behind this daily edition of "Warrier's Collage"" 1.Following the footsteps of Mangesh Tarambale OR spark in your head after reading his "daily digest" OR 2.Balancing act with PPR's daily write ups entertaining exrbites) North/South Kerala inhibition? OR 3.Just for self gratification of seeing your name in print media OR 4.Post covid isolation forcing you to spend time before your P.C. OR 5...deriving a small pleasure by making fun of me (ooor baffon of me) 6.ONLY GOD ALONE KNOWS....(not you MGW...I mean the real GOD, if at all he is omnipresent) (All are welcome to guess answers to these questions each answer not exceeding 200 characters will be considered for inclusion in the "Open House" on Friday-Collage 🙏) 5) A P Ramadurai "Re. Sri Bausenan's opinion on the noblest profession, teaching is equally noble" B Looking back What did they say, this time, last year? 1) C Rangarajan https://youtu.be/_TBIC8F-N6A 2) S Gurumurthy https://www.newindianexpress.com/nation/2020/feb/03/thuglak-editor-gurumurthy-hails-modi-government-%E2%80%8Bfor-ending-rils-20-year-pta-monopoly-2098322.html C Nostalgia* I grew up in Bombay, not Mumbai. Regardless of the weather, our dinner time was at 8:00 PM and bed time was 10:30. Eating out at a restaurant was a huge deal, a rarity actually, that only happened when it was a birthday or a very special occasion to celebrate. There was no such thing as fast food on every other day, and having a bottle of soft drinks and an ice-cream from the local shop was a real treat. Pass your final exams and you might have gotten a new set of clothes, or Bata shoes. You took your school clothes off as soon as you got home and put on your ‘home’ clothes. There was no taking or picking you up in the car, you either boarded the school bus or rode on public transport, or j ust walked home. You got home did your chores and homework before dinner. Not everyone had a house phone and much later, all private conversation were at PCO booth's. We didn’t have appletv AmazonPrime or Netflix. We had only Doordarshan to watch. Jungle Book came once a week on a Sunday and Chhaya Geet on Thursday’s, for which we waited all week. We played chor police, lappa chuppi, Football, Cricket, lagori, dabba ice-spice (actually it was “I spy”) Marbles and any other game we could come up with... At home, we stuck to chess, ludo, snakes and ladders and Monopoly. Staying shut in the house was a PUNISHMENT and the only thing we knew about "bored" was --- "You better find something to do before I find it for you!" Life was good without insta, facebook, twitter. Followers were the friends standing behind you. We played music via magnetic tapes or radio. A walkman was a luxury for the uber rich. We went to the local shop for groceries and chiclets, jeera goli, kismi used to be a couple of paise. We ate what Mum made for dinner and put in our lunch and snack box. Bottled water was non existent. We drank from the school water filter. We called our friends from home by shouting their names from the street below. We weren't AFRAID OF ANYTHING. We played until dark... sunset was our alarm. If someone had a fight, that's what it was and we were friends again a day later if not SOONER. We watched our MOUTHS around our elders because ALL of our aunts, uncles, grandpas, grandmas, AND our parents' best friends were all extensions of our PARENTS and you didn't want them telling your parents you’d misbehaved! Or they would give you something to cry about. We respected the Police, Firemen, Ambulance workers, Teachers, Doctors and Nurses. We never answered back... ever!!! We got detention at school for not doing homework, no hair cut, being late to class or being naughty. Our teachers spanked us when we deserved it and our parents did not complain about it. We did not know what luxury was. Our simple lives were so good. Those were the good days. So many kids today will never know how it feels to be a real kid. I loved my childhood and all the friends I hung around with. If you have anyone in your family who are from the same generation then share this with them. Surely they'll cherish these memories and thank God for such a lovely childhood ..... *Forwarded by R Jayakumar Mumbai D Faith/Spirituality : V T Panchapagesan Chennai Good Conduct There is a saying that fools rush in where angels fear to tread.... Yes, there are seven foolish acts we do and if only we correct them, We become wise in our living....They are.... 1.The man who is not corrected by yesterday’s mistakes.. 2.The man who thinks every successful man had a pull. 3 The man who has not the courage to change his mind. 4. The man who is always waiting for his luck to turn. 5. The man who always has, ‘ It can’t be done’ on the tip of his tongue. 6. The man who throws away his money on baubles.. 7. The man who thinks he can get along without God.... Katha Upanishad 1,2, 24 says this: He who has not turned away from wicked conduct, Whose passions are not tranquil and subdued, Or whose mind is not at rest, Can never obtain the Supreme-Self even by surpassing knowledge.. 👌 V. T.Panchapagesan. Peace of mind https://www.speakingtree.in/allslides/peace-of-mind-a-spiritual-gateway-to-success/3motivation F Leisure Don't Laugh* A married couple in their early 60's are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said: "For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish." The wife answered: "Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband." The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! Two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands. The husband thought for a moment: "Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me." The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish! So the fairy waved her magic wand and poof!... The husband became 92 years old. The moral of this story: Men who are ungrateful should remember fairies are female...... *Forwarded by R Jayakumar G Peace of Mind: Think Positive https://www.briantracy.com/blog/personal-success/positive-attitude-happy-people-positive-thinking/ How Do You Train Your Mind To Think Positive? Training your mind to think positive can be achieved by leveraging a simple concept. Your mind has enough bandwidth to only focus on one thought at a time. All you have to do is keep it focused on uplifting thoughts until you form the same types of neural pathways that are created when you establish a new habit. When a negative event occurs, remember that it’s your response that truly determines the outcome. Always look for the positive response or optimistic lesson when such events take place.
