It was established on the 21st day of March, by resolution of the United Nations General Assembly on November 28, 2012. Countries are encouraged to undertake efforts to organize local, national, and The Secretariat of the United Nations Forum on Forests, in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization, facilitates the implementation of such events in collaboration with governments, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests, and international, regional and subregional organizations.

To forget is an involuntary action. Depending upon the insinuation and the sensitivity of the receiver this emotion is recorded in memory. For a very sensitive person this recording is like a cast in mould and is impossible to remove (Forget). An insensitive person insinuation hurled at him seldom penetrate and can hardly retain. I believe I am sensitive though can't afford to get forgotten never mull on a vengeance (Forgive). Forgive is a habitual companion of forget and the former has no direct role in forget's functions and hence can be ignored. When a man can't remember anything what can he forgive. Forgetful persons are not fit to be trusted even by their consorts. Can commercial and banking institutions disburse loans on the agreements made out by the forgetful entities? Ignore my old age musings and forget and forgive me. (We may forget, but can't ignore. Do share your thoughts. Please see today's opening remarks by the seniormost reader Panchapagesan Sir-Collage πŸ™) 3) R Jayakumar Mumbai Happiness, Friendship and Smiles... Today the Collage has included the above three for reading through poems and short articles. When I look at them together I don't find much difference among them and all mean the thing in life, "Being Alive.." They are interdependent. If you are not happy, you have no friends and no smile. If you have no friends, you are unhappy and you don't smile. And if you can't smile, you can't make friends and can't be happy. To know if one is alive and kicking all we need to know is if one has achieved any one these three things, a Heart filled with Happiness, a Faithful Friend, and a Sincere Smile on the Face. The other two follow automatically..

When I completed 75 years of age, a senior acquaintance who is also one of my Gurus, who retired from a central government organisation 20 years earlier, asked me a puzzling question: “Post-retirement, were you called back to RBI for clarifying anything about the work you were involved?” Though my answer was “No”, I was slightly unprepared to take that question. Without hiding my embarrassment, I asked him why he asked that from me. He said, recently there was a discussion in his evening chat group which had more than half a dozen Retirees as members, on the subject. They had concluded that those who had no opportunity to go back to explain actions taken or work done while in service, post-retirement, were having relatively clean hands* and better health. Terrible logic. Though might be, based on research among a small group which wasn’t adequately representative, the conclusion seemed logical. Any activity can be seen as a project. Life cannot be an exception. Briefly, Project Approach is about having a beginning, progressing to a peak level of performance and tapering off to an end/closure. In my case, the main project of my life which was a salaried job, I had closed with my voluntary retirement in 2003. Thereafter, I concentrated on pursuing reading and writing. Till last week when another Guru, Subbarao, mentioned in the communication, I was not aware of the kind of capital I was accumulating from my post-retirement activities. He said: “Your energy and enthusiasm in engaging in contemporary issues are really impressive. It is efforts like this that build social capital” *Of course, they are also washing their hands more often these days, as advised... 2) Warrier's Blog www.warriersblog.com Since 2009. 5000 plus posts. 3 lakh plus page views! 3) Psychology Today https://www.psychologytoday.com/intl A wasp is flying around in your room.
