Most of the time content is borrowed from personal messages and Group e-mails. I bank on the soft side contributors/readรจrs have for Collage. So far only one reader has offered to make regular contributions. The offer was not accepted for technical reasons. ๐Ÿ™-Warrier) 4) V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram Recovery of Kerala I have read with great interest the scholarly speculations of Madam Vathsala Jayaraman on the creation of Kerala. You may, perhaps, not agree with me, Madam, when I say that, trying to apply logic to our old stories, is as futile as painting an ice-block. Besides, Malayalees never claimed that Kerala is God's own country. It is the recent creation of the State's Tourism Department and that too a plagiarism. Madam might have heard about Ulloor S Parameswara Iyer, a Tamil Brahmin, whose love of Kerala was much more than that of many Keralites. He is adored as one of the great poetic trio in Malayalam literature. In his long poem 'Umaakeralam' there are four lines about the creation of Kerala which is unrivalled in the matter of poetic imagination. I am sure that Madam will like it. I am quoting it here: "Van Narmadaa nadiyeyum Vazhimel thadanjha Mannante vikramathothi Arinjhoraazhi Thannanthikatthil avane Sakulam vadhitchu vannappol Abbhrigusuthannithu Kaazhchavetchu." (The Arabian Sea was sore with the king Kaarthaveeraarjuna for preventing the mighty river Narmada from flowing into her. And, when the son of Bhrigu-Parasurama-came to her after killing him and his whole tribe, she was greatly pleased and gifted this land to him) To bring these lines to the notice of Madam is the motive behind writing this piece. The rest is only incidental. B Current Affairs RBI Committee to evaluate applications for new banks https://www.dailypioneer.com/2021/business/rbi-announces-committee-to-evaluate-applications-for-banks.html Excerpts: "The RBI on Monday announced setting up a Standing External Advisory Committee (SEAC) for evaluating applications for universal banks and small finance banks under former central bank deputy governor Shyamala Gopinath. The RBI had issued guidelines for ‘on tap’ licensing of universal banks in the private sector in August 2016 and guidelines for ‘on tap’ licensing of small finance banks in the private sector in December 2019. The guidelines indicated that the applications for universal banks and small finance banks will be initially screened by the Reserve Bank to ensure prima facie eligibility of the applicants." C Book: The Aquarian Conspiracy(1987) By Marylin Ferguson (1938-2008) https://wikischool.org/book/the_aquarian_conspiracy Excerpts from the Foreword: "Marilyn Ferguson is the best reporter today on the farther reaches of investigation into the life and human sciences. She represents a new kind of investigative journalist — not a sleuth after the corruptions of a politician but one tracking the spoor of a new research idea in all its windings; following it to its sources and its affinities in allied fields, its conclusions, its implications for the whole spectrum of human thought and con sciousness. She has had the courage to undertake this book as a participant-observer of the transformative process. Setting out to shed some light on the riddle of intelligence, she got ensnared by the mysteries and revelations of brain research, reached out to every discipline radiating from it — and was never the same again. She has proven to be a whirlwind of information, thought, and activity, a whole exploratory “network” in herself. Conferences on the mind's dimensions and the brain's functioning have called her everywhere. One day she would be in Los Angeles, the next two days in Denver, the weekend in Houston or Princeton, then back to San Francisco or San Diego. She lives on conferences, programs, and discussions as the rest of us live on protein and carbohydrates. Her observation post is in every auditorium, her garrison on every university campus, her spies in every little consciousness group and every laboratory. Nietzsche talked of philosophy as the gaya science, the joyful science, and to Marilyn Ferguson the area of knowledge she has staked out for her reporting and synthesizing is a joyful science. She describes with excitement the world of those who have strained to see past the blinders on the human spirit and have thrown them off, and she matches her own mood to their sense of optimism. “1 bring you good news” is her message." D Readers' Contribution 1) V T Panchapagesan Chennai Spirituality/Faith De Ravignan, presents a definite solution to all our deficiencies :— Believe me my dear friends, believe an experience ripened by Thirty years in the ministry, when I do here affirm that all deceptions, All spiritual deficiencies, all mistakes, all falls, all faults , and even the Most serious wanderings out of the right path, all proceed from this Single source—-a want of constancy in prayer... Live the life of prayer . Learn to bring everything, to change everything Into prayer——pains and trials and temptations of all kinds. Pray in the calm, pray in the storm, Pray on awaking, pray during daytime, Going and coming, pray, Tired out and distracted, pray, Whatsoever your repugnance may be, pray. Pray that you may learn to pray, If you feel a disgust, a horror of prayer, pray on , Pray in spite of yourself, against yourself... Pray, for prayer is the strength which saves, the courage which perseveres, The mystic bridge cast over the abyss which joins the soul to God.... The chief exercise of Prayer is to speak to God and to hear God Speak in the bottom of your heart...... Francis of Sales ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ V. T.Panchapagesan. 2) Random Thoughts by M G Warrier Column by T J S George in The New Indian Express https://www.newindianexpress.com/Opinions/columns/t-j-s-george Excerpts: "We have two Indias. One is dirt poor. The other is filthy rich. The world loves this second India. The luxury market in this India is estimated at Rs 37,500 crore. The culture around it is such that watches costing between Rs 50,000 and Rs 1.5 lakh quickly went out of fashion as the sale of Rs 3-lakh-and-more watches zoomed. Porsche sold 312 cars in the country in 2011. Dreams like Rolls Royce and Maybach were pushed into the background when something that could not even be dreamed of, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport was launched in India with a price tag of Rs 16 crore per piece. The luxury yacht market was set to touch Rs 5,000 crore by 2020. The Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad started a specialised course in luxury management. Despite all this, the World Economic Forum says that Indians born in low-income families will take seven generations to even approach the country’s mean income. Salman Rushdie described India as "a fable rivalled by two other mighty fantasies: Money and God". (The article makes interesting reading. The writer T J S George is a nonagenarian and our generation has been enjoying his wit and wisdom almost since the beginning of the second half of last Century. With advancing age, many perfect the arts and sciences of selective use of their faculties. I'm not referring to clinical cases of "no option". Someone can try a case study on the subject with this article. Now please open the link below ๐Ÿ™-Warrier) Knowing When To Stop! And Make A New Beginning https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/knowing-when-to-stop-and-make-a-new-beginning-2-30331/ E Environment Protection https://www.greenmountainenergy.com/why-renewable-energy/protect-the-environment/ Excerpts: Use less water. Conserving water at home is one of the easiest ways to protect the environment. Think of all the times you consume water, both inside and outside your home; then, make adjustments as you can. For example: Turn off the tap while you brush your teeth. Fix leaky faucets. Make your water use more efficient by aerating faucets, using sprinklers that reduce runoff and installing low-flow toilets and efficient shower heads. Collect and use rainwater for watering plants. Shorten your shower by a few minutes—or skip it altogether if you don't really need one that day. Only run your dishwasher or washing machine when it's full These are just the basics—you can get really creative when it comes to conserving water. F 1) Costs and Price* giant ship's engine broke down and no one could repair it, so they hired a Mechanical Engineer with over 40 years of experience. He inspected the engine very carefully, from top to bottom. After seeing everything, the engineer unloaded the bag and pulled out a small hammer. He knocked something gently. Soon, the engine came to life again. The engine has been fixed! 7 days later the engineer mentioned that the total cost of repairing the giant ship was Rs. 10,000 to the ship owner. "What?!" said the owner. "You did almost nothing. Give us a detailed bill." The answer is simple: Tap with a hammer: Rs. 2 Know where to knock and how much to knock: Rs. 9,998 The importance of appreciating one's expertise and experience, because those are the results of struggles, experiments and even tears. If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 10 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes. *Forward received from S. Thyagarajan 2) Billing for actual services* Your DUCK IS DEAD A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away." The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?" "Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet.. "How can you be so sure?" she protested.. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something." The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room. The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck." The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.. The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$1,500!" she cried,"$1,500 just to tell me my duck is dead!" The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the *Lab* Test and the *Cat* Scan, it's now $1,500." You know the drill .....if you're smiling, you must pass it on, give someone else a smile too! Share the laughter. Laughter is the best medicine. *Forward received from Dr T V Surendran Mananthavady Context: Some patients demand special Investigations which are not mandatory (Certified that Thyagarajan and Surendran had no mutual consultations before sharing these two stories with us. Miracles can happen ๐Ÿ™-Warrier) G Quotes about Achievers https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/achievers-quotes Like: Achievers have an enabling attitude, realism, and a conviction that they themselves were the laboratory of innovation. Their ability to change themselves is central to their success. They have learned to conserve their energy by minimizing the time spent in regret or complaint. Every event is a lesson to them, every person a teacher*. -Merylin Ferguson (Marilyn Ferguson was an American author, editor and public speaker known for her 1980 book The Aquarian Conspiracy which is connected with the New Age Movement ๐Ÿ™-Warrier) *Never stop learning: M G Warrier https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/never-stop-learning-24915/
