Warrier's Collage: Readèrs Response

What they think about Collage 1) Vathsala Jayaraman Driving force behind starting this 'Collage'. Warrier, a prolific writer might not have had one particular aim. It might have been a combination of factors also, other than what Balu Sir had mentioned. As it evolves, we find Collage as an interesting daily enjoined with so many references to Vedantha Spirituality, articles from doctors, professors, psychologists, historians, homemakers, artists, humorists and veterans in many other fields. I feel that Warrier has allowed Collage to evolve itself without pursuing any particular aim. If he had any particular aim this would not have been such a great success. It is a combination of inner urge consolidating the views of people in multiple layers in an organized pattern coined by Warrier. Heartfelt congrats to Warrier. Vathsala Jayaraman 2) R. Chandrasekharan, Chennai: I refer to the 6 issues raised by Sri Balasubramanian of Coimbatore on "Wondering as to what is the driving force behind this daily edition of "Warrier's Collage"". What I write may not directly reply to any of the 6 issues, but I consider it relevant to share here. In my organization for very senior executives in the rank of GMs a programme was once arranged at Pune for Stress Management and handling Post Retirement Life. I could chance to read a write up given to my GM, contents of which I am giving below. (It is a small book containing some articles from American Universities and Journals on Psychology). In any career, a person is most active just before his retirement. He will be in fairly senior rank, handling multiple assignments at one time, highly stretched for making fast decisions, under extreme time constraints to manage visitors and required to be present in more than one place on a day which involves hectic touring. In effect he will be living at a multiple atmospheric pressure life. The day next to his retirement, he suddenly finds himself staring into a vacuum. If he cannot handle his pressure-free life properly, he would end up as a mental wreck. Brooding over his loss of purpose and importance will kill his zest for life. So the remedy suggested is to keep his mind with any activity that make him think and his thinking should give him a purpose and a pleasure. I think Sri Warrier is doing just that. Keeping his mind active by running a digital journal. God Bless him. 3) R Jayakumar Mumbai Driving force behind the Collage...... Four of the six reasons given earlier by Bala look genuine though coming out of his guess work. 1. We do strange things because others have also ventured to do so. 2. We Want to create our own fan clubs. There is a PPR fan club, there is a SK fan club and there is a VJ fan club in the exrbites Google group (all unrecognised) but there is no Warrier fan club. Collage has made me a fan of Warrier.. 3. An Idle mind is a devil's workshop. After completing the publication of his new book there was a confusion, in the mind of Warrier what to do next and the Collage was born. 4. Lockdown forced Warrier to sit at home entire day (and night) before the computer. If many others are busy WFH why not make the others busy on WFC (Wait For Collage). Some more reasons for the force behind the Collage as I perceive..... 5. The other two exrbites groups where interactions take place have members in hundreds and thousand. Collage has a middle course of recipients of mail in less than hundred. 6. Some readers are members only in Chennai group and some are only in All India Group. Collage brings such people together under a new group. 7. Some good writers have good articles to read but no avenues to present them and Collage comes to help them re-publish. 8. Publicity may be another reason. Collage came immediately after the publication of Restoring Trust in Governance. Collage is used for highlighting Warrier's new book. 9. Show of strength. Collage is a proof how much friendship and contacts its owner has made in his life. 10. Readers need holistic advice for happy life. An incident narrated by Sh Babusenan and a Wisdom line from Sh Panchapagesan and a few Quotes from prominent personalities cited by Warrier can do the trick. Now with the vaccination drive in full swing, once thirty crore people are injected and the herd immunity is achieved, who knows, it may be curtains for the Collage. R Jayakumar. 4) Balasubramanian Coimbatore Wondering as to what is the driving force behind this daily edition of "Warrier's Collage" (Warrier's responses in blue 🙏) 1.Following the footsteps of Mangesh Tarambale OR spark in your head after reading his "daily digest " Origin of my regular communication can be traced back to the Post Card days when my parents received at least two letters in a month. When my son went to hostel, he used to receive one or two letters a week. Collage is a Lockdown byproduct and will disappear with C-thing OR 2.Balancing act with PPR's daily write ups (entertaining exrbites) North/South Kerala inhibition? I don't have any competition from PPR. We have a beautiful love-hate relationship. OR 3.Just for self gratification of seeing your name in print media Not at all. I had such fancies while in school. Then I saw my name in print in Mathrubhumi Weekly. OR 4.Post covid isolation forcing you to spend time before your P.C. If you are asking about writing, I've enough pending work outside Collage. Practically, I have not written anything for Collage specifically yet. OR 5.👺..deriving a small pleasure by making fun of me (ooor baffon of me) No 6 GOD ALONE KNOWS....(not you MGW...I mean the real GOD, if at all he is omnipresent) About "My Concept of my friend God, see my response to Babusenan in Collage. Thanks for giving an opportunity to respond to these thoughtful questions-Warrier 🙏
