Warrier's Collage April 1, 2021

Welcome to Warrier's Daily COLLAGE On Thursday April 1, 2021 April First is the only day in the whole year we are careful with fools! To see Bimbadhar Mishra's latest cartoons please visit the website at https://bimbadharmishra.in Love Yourself: Chinmayananda https://youtu.be/e4lj833B5uw (Link Suggestion: K P V Karunakaran Mumbai) Good Morning At Last An App 4 Love: Place Today in UR HEART Considering my age, I wanted support and made an effort whether I can get it by GOOGLE Search. E-Mail message flashed asking me to install "LOVE", AS IT IS REALLY QUITE SIMPLE.... Tech Support(TS): Yes, how can I help you? Me (Customer) (C): Well, after much consideration, I have decided to install Love. Can you guide me? What do I do first? TS......The first step is to open your heart. Have you located your heart? C... Yes, but there are several programmes running now. Is it OK to install Love while they are running.? TS... Er...Can you list them for me? C...........Let us see, I see past Hurt, Low Self-esteem, Grudge and Resentment running. TS.........No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current system. It may remain in your permanent memory without disruption... Love will eventually override Low Self-esteem with a module of its own called High Self-esteem. However you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment as they will prevent Love from being properly installed. Please turn those off? C. Umm..let me see.. Actually I don’t know how to turn them off? TS.... Please go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this many times until Grudge and Resentment have been erased fully. C. Okay, done! Wow, Love has started installing itself. Is that normal? TS. Yes, remember, this is only basic programme as you have to connect to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.. C : Oops..There is an error which says external components are not allowed.. TS Relax..It means that the Love programme is set up to run on internal hearts, but has not yet been run on your heart. In nontechnical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others. Pull down Self-acceptance, then click on the following files: Forgive Self, Realize your worth and acknowledge your Limitations.. C is: OK Done.. TS : Now copy them to the My Heart directory. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming.. Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back. C : Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my Monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart.. Is this normal? TS : So Love is installed and running. One more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to pass it and its various modules around to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back to you... C : Thank you, thank you so much . Finally I understood Love dissolves Hate creating Harmony.. V. T. Panchapagesan. Nice Day M G Warrier A Interaction 1) K P V Karunakaran Mumbai Thanks for the excellent narrative on food and keerthanas. Really great experience to read it. (To read article use the link : https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/lucky-with-food-and-blessings-30705/) 2) Vathsala Jayaraman Chennai Quite interesting was the small write up by Shri Subbaraman Sir containing certain words having a reference to both men and women. I can't but think of the word'Omen' having a binding on men and also inviting women into its fold. 'Omen' has its origin from early man's attempts to explain nature from human view point and is supposed to invite fortunes or evils. Every one is particular in avoiding a bad omen rather than adhering to a good one. Invariably men and women tease each other saying that they have inbuilt omen within themselves. But in fact 'omen' is a part of so many words. Dear Omen, we do not want you neither to trouble us with loathsOMENness and fearsOMENess, nor to be as soothing as fOMENtation.No special nOMENclature is needed for you to be branded as good or bad. We humans are happy to reserve a cordial accommodation to you, not with irksOMENess but with a distinct mOMENto of a unique status of 'in-cognito' for ever. Will you please remain calm and quiet without causing even a mOMENtary disturbance in us?Will you quench your all time desire of creating phenOMENal implications on us? Can you promise us not even to take an Avatar of dream in Godmen leading to hunts? This will be a yeOMEN service to humanity. I am reminded of Oscar Wilde's remarks " There is no such thing as omen. Destiny does not send us heralds. She is too wise or too cruel for that." Vathsala Jayaraman 3) P P Ramachandran Mumbai My dear MGW, I read with the deepest of regrets the following Advice: Better skip Collage. Collage has taken the liberty to correct your response in 8 places, mostly use of capital letters and spacing between words. It happens. I had appreciated the work you are doing every day My innocent suggestion was to make it better. Will any of your vast readers have anything to say on this "Improper Advice"?* What to read and what to Skip I will decide. I have put up Office Notes--some even to Governor in Block Capital. I answered for my M A Exam in Capitals. PPR (I agree. Such options/choice should be left to the individuals. Let them learn from experience 🙏-Warrier) *They expect both of us to entertain them non-stop. Collage doesn't encourage them taking sides. Let's get back to our core function! 👍🙏 4) S K Gupta Panchkula Both of you are 'MASTERS' of your respective fields. I, as a layman, can only say that the human relations usually fructify and flourish when seen through the prism of mutual respect & understanding. Moreover, it always takes two to clap too. So, better ignore and move on. (May be yet another unsolicited* advice) S K Gupta (This topic is closed for further comments. Thanks to all who have responded, and apologies for not including many responses and suggestions. Collage doesn't solicit anything. Accepts whatever comes free 🆓) B Readers Write Smoking while running!: Black Beauty V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram Agreed. The diesel engine moving out of Egmore station was majestic and powerful, but in beauty, she could not hold a candle to the cute steam engine who, with her hands on either side, moved the big wheels round and round, first slowly and then fast. This black beauty was an integral part of my boyhood memories. We, belonging to the princely state of Travancore, had only one railway line that connected the capital to the big city of Madras. The Trivandrum -Madras Express, pulled by two steam engines, was a marvel to us, boys. Somebody defined in those days an express train as one not stopping at many stations but stopping in between stations. Our express train was quite loyal to this definition. One vivid memory of mine connected with this express train is that, on one evening, when it pulled up at Kollam station, two persons emerged from the first-class compartment: M.K.Thyagaraja Bhagavathar and S D Subbalekshmi and It was Bhagavathar's post-imprisonment days and he looked tired and his shirt was sewn up in some places. Our friend in my boyhood days was the F class engine of the passenger train that stopped patiently at our tiny village station allowing persons to alight and board. After school hours, a small group of us waited at the station for her arrival. The driver and the fireman were our heroes. When the latter opened the door of the furnace to throw in coal with a shovel , the lurid flame, with its thousand tongues, used to give us an eerie feeling. Those engines with their long chimneys used to tire easily and drank a lot of water. From the watering station at Kadakkavoor, just over 30 km north of Trivandrum, and the temple-town station at Varkala, it was a continuous ascent and, at one place, the crawling train would invariably come to a halt. It was in front of a Devi temple. Passengers would throw coins as offerings which the temple assistant collected assiduosly. I was told that, when the first train on this line moved along merrily in 1918, ignoring the deity of the temple, she got annoyed and stopped it. It was permitted to move on only after the railway officials offered due apologies. From then on, all passenger trains stopped briefly in front of the temple. Why the express train was exempted, remained a mystery. This practice stopped when the much more powerful B class engines were introduced on this line and luckily the deity didn't bother about it. C The Day We Refuse to be Fooled! Vathsala Jayaraman Not even a single day passes without ourselves being fooled. Go to a restaurant, you are made to pay an enhanced bill; you are forced to enter untrue statements in the mortgage application if your loan has to be sanctioned. From the day the child is born into this world, he is brought up among lies, lies and unmixed lies.. Cheating seems to be a part of life.See the students. They download materials from internet, exchange answers through iphones, become experts in faking exam scores. This academic dishonesty is perceptible even in colleges and Universities. They have unlicensed buildings, unapproved courses and unauthorised degrees. Some institutions are notorious for selling forged degrees and certificates. The recent media craze has created a blunder of epic proportions and mass cheating. You are the puppet and the puppeteers are artfully, stealthily steering your hand into your wallet where the credit card lies. You are manipulated into buying stuff which you don't want paying a higher price too. They make you lost and confused and you are made to load your cart. Another big area of making you are fooled is the Real Estate which is notorious for lack of transparency. On many occasions buyers find themselves locked into properties with flaws, unapproved land deals apparently looking normal. Even the elites and highly educated are victimized. The vast financial houses too have fallen into the trap, being fooled by the business lagoons. There is no end to our being cheated. Even the simple vegetable and fruit vendors whom we sympathise as they deal with perishable goods, don't leave us unharmed. They use various green and yellow lights and trick us into believing that the products are fresh and free from pollution. Mango fruits with artificial carbide ripening are common these days. There are plenty of fanciful matrimonial advertisements resulting in persistent conflicts and early separation. Knowingly or unknowingly man has to be consciously aware of continuing different lies to different persons to escape being caught and is unable to come out of the vicious circle.. He makes a fool of himself and of others too. ‘Buy one and get two free’ are just tricks to empty the old stocks. Even smart phone plans have the word ‘life-long’ embedded. I wonder whose life they refer to, most probably that of the instrument which may be just one year. Conmen entering your house and fooling you by attractive talks belong to old school. A simple flash in your PC’you are the luckiest to get millions of dollars within 7 days’- is sufficient to get you into trap. Advertisements from multinationals just brain wash even the intelligent people and make them gullible idiots falling a prey. Not to talk of election promises which are nothing but lies wrapped in pretty packings. Knowingly the voters get into the trap of being fooled. Medical professionals give false hopes to the relatives of the terminally ill patients,extract lakhs of rupees within a week, only to convey God’s will and hand over the mortal remains. Some lawyers and judges who belong to a higher breed of intellectuals consider it a proud privilege to talk nothing but lies , which come under the ‘technically true’ category in their profession and are experts in misleading others. Alas! We are fooled by Gurus,yogis and masters in the name of religion. When we become so much accustomed to lies and deceit, one feels as if he is committing a crime if he starts telling the truth which appears false and dangerous. A truth's impact is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It was not the world being round that agitated people, but the fact that the earth was not flat. When we are used to a package of lies and being fooled, the truth seems utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic. Adolf Hitler said "Lucky for the rulers, the common people don't think". I believe that there is no absolute truth excepting the truth that there is no absolute truth”. April Fools' Day is observed throughout the world. Practices include sending someone on a "fool's errand," looking for things that don't exist; playing pranks; and trying to get people to believe ridiculous things. Psychologists use the technical term 'Cognitive Dissonance' which is taken advantage of by people who easily deceive everyone. More than 80% of the people have already been converted into fools of exceptional cadre beyond compare’ by different forces of the society. Where is the need for a specific April Fools Day? D Select responses excerpted out of context from Group Interactions specially for April First "I think this type of true relationship will be possible only with friends. What do you say? Regards" "You are right! And, where to find one fitting your definition and description! " .. "Please try me... No insurance or guarantee... And these Mutual Funds have spoiled the chance of talking about "past performance" also. Anyway trial is free 🙏" Your free-offer has nothing to do with ongoing election festivities--I hope. " "You are close to the TRUTH Last two days Collage Team conducted two surveys to assess the popularity of Collage among Readers. The results were AWESOME 👍 A First day Collage was not sent to 20 close friends/relatives who were getting it regularly by WhatsApp. None of them noticed 👍👍 B Second day Collage carried a story about a Tragedy next door to Warrier's residence (Dreams The Mall was gutted...) Only one reader noticed 👍👍👍 M G Warrier You know that we have more silent readers (only) careful not to make any mark of having read! But they do. Why anybody lies, why one has secrets of ones own. To save his skin. That's natural instinct in self defense. Just diverting... Ambassador lies abroad to save the image of the country. Lawyer lies in the court to save the client and earn money. Someone else lies.... That is how the land lies Friendships or relationships are forever with benefits, no benefit no relationship Few countable exceptions do still are there beyond the above definition. The lie I mentioned is a selfish lie. Warrierji's lies are altruistic or noble lies. Lawyers lies are professional lies against which, they have immunity. Leaders lie to save / enhance their image. Poets lie to pep up their stuff. Lovers lie to impress or cheat their fiancees.! So everybody lies. As Ramadurai Sir said we land on lies, swim through lies, fly with lies and live with lies. Badrinarayanan சும்மாவா சொன்னாங்க " காயமே இது பொய்யடா , வெறும் காற்றடித்த பையடா " என்று ("This body itself is illusion, it's just an inflated bag") Shakespeare has an identical message here : Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. E All Fools Day: Charles Lamb https://www.angelfire.com/nv/mf/elia1/fools.htm F Leisure: FUN TIME 1) Lest we forget names* Today (March 28, 2021) is *World ALCOHOL DAY* 🥂🍷 Wishing all alcohol lovers A very Happy Alcohol Day In our life, problems may go from Haywards 2000 to Haywards 5000 but we must take them as a Royal Challenge otherwise people will call us Old Monk and put a Black Label on our name. So we must learn from Teachers to fight like Jack Daniel Live like a Bagpiper walk like Johny Walker work till 8 PM & think like Director Special Catch the ideas like Kingfisher and Knockout all the problems. Then life will be Imperial & we will become Aristocrat & there will be value for our Signature🍻 You will receive blessing from St. Peter Scotch🍷 *Forward received from K Balasubramanian Coimbatore 2) R Parthasarathy Shakespeare has an identical message here : Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. 3) R Jayakumar Mumbai The heat in Mumbai is unbearable for the last one week. There is slow down in all processing. Those who respond regularly are really cool headed. (I saw some discussion about popularity of the Collage and it's editor.) R Jayakumar Bill Gates BREAKING FAKE NEWS: Bill Gates resigns as Chairman of Microsoft after receiving the following letter from an African Man .. "Dear Sir, I haf some kweshin to ask: Namba Wan - The keyboard alphabets are not in order, when will you launch the correct version? Namba Too - There is a 'Start' button but no 'Stop' button, where is it? Namba Tree - I have already learned Microsoft Word, when will you launch Microsoft Sentence? Namba Por - There is a recycle bin but... There is no one who comes to collect the bin. Pynali ..eh fersonal question: Why is your name Gates when you sell Window May your day be filled with undiluted laughter Do enjoy your day!
