Gita XIII, 7 to 11 Slokas : 20 qualities of a GNANI When Lord Krishna uses the first pronoun ME, He means Atman, the supreme self. Atman is the same in one and all. We are all a spark, a tiny form in atom of the divine force. All seers and prophets have identified with that infinite, all pervading, supreme self. They have transcended their individuality, their body, mind, intellect and have merged with Atman. We have separated from Atman by our Vasanas. Vasanas are unmanifest thoughts and desires. If we remove Vasanas, thoughts and desires, we become one with Atman. The union of the individual with Atman is called YOGA. Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj. Yuj means to join. To unite. Yoga is therefore a technique prescribed for our union with Atman. A Spiritual course which helps us to exhaust our Vasanas and merge with our Supreme self. Our mission in life is Realization of the Self. Nothing else.. We should devote all our actions and perceptions, emotions and thoughts with unswerving consistency through the practice of Yoga to the achievement of that supreme ideal. That unprostituting devotion to the highest mission in life is yet another discipline practiced by a GNANI.

Along with Vijayan, 20 ministers of the new Kerala cabinet, including NCP's AK Saseendran, Indian National League's (INL) Ahammad Devarkovil, R Bindu and PA Mohammed Riyas, also took oath today. B 1) Kerala : Political Background https://kerala.gov.in/political-background Political Background When Kerala was formed, the State was under President's rule. The new State went to the polls for the first time in March 1957. There were 126 Assembly and 16 Parliamentary seats. The Communist Party of India emerged as the single largest party in the Assembly with 60 seats. Shri E.M.S.Namboodiripad formed an 11 member ministry on April 5, 1957 with the support of some independents. Political agitation and unrest extending over several months, culminated in the taking over of the administration of the State and the dissolution of the Legislative Assembly, under Article 356 of the Constitution, by the president of India, on July 31, 1959. Mid-term elections followed in February next year. A three party alliance comprising of the Congress, the Praja Socialist Party and the Muslim League, was returned to power. Shri Pattom A.Thanu Pillai (PSP) took over as the coalition Chief Minister, leading a council of eleven ministers, in February 1960. Shri R.Sankar (Congress) was designated as the Deputy Chief Minister. Shri Pattom A Thanu Pillai however, resigned on September 25, 1962, consequent on a gubernatorial appointment, Shri.R.Sankar was appointed Chief Minister the next day. Shri.Sankar continued as Chief Minister for about two years. 2) Communist Party in Kerala: Journey so far: https://www.newindianexpress.com/nation/2019/oct/17/100-years-and-still-a-vital-force-viewing-the-left-from-the-shores-of-kerala-2049004.amp As far as Kerala is concerned, the Left movement and the state's history run parallel to each other. Sixty-three years after its formation, Kerala's past is intrinsically linked to its Leftist movement which has left an indelible imprint on not only its political history, but also on each and every milestone achieved in the course of shaping its socio-cultural fabric. The history of the Communist movement in Kerala is closely linked to the life of VS Achuthanandan, India's oldest living communist leader, who turns 96 on October 20, 2019. 3) A Five Day Tour of Kerala : Rajeev Singh https://traveltriangle.com/blog/rajeev-singh-trip-to-kerala/amp/?utm_source=organic&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=blog_banner_campaign&referer=blog_banner_campaign Rajeev Singh talks about his 5 day trip to Kerala that costed him INR 30,000. This trip included his stay, sightseeing and a private cab for the three cities – Alleppey, Thekkady, and Munnar. He describes his journey to the land that is famously known as ‘God’s own country’* and talks about the impact it left on him and his wife. *Also see link at 4 4) Under-exploited Tourism Potential : M G Warrier Let’s attract the tourists better: https://thg.page.link/o7F1iREau24qb8Y67 Aranmula has all the linkages and resources necessary to grow into a large modern ‘Herbal Tourism Village’. The concept could include participation of major Ayurveda entities. There should be facilities for stay and treatment for different economic classes including the Indian middle class and ‘rich’ outsiders. Development of medicinal plantations in adjacent villages is a possibility. Aranmula has the additional advantage of having two international airports within a distance of 150 km. Kerala could indeed go places — provided a carefully charted out plan is put into place C Ayurvedic Heritage of Kerala 1) Article on the subject https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3331432/ 2) Kottakkal Aryavaidyasala https://www.aryavaidyasala.com/ AVS was established at Kottakkal in Kerala State of India in 1902 by the visionary physician and philanthropist, the late Vaidyaratnam P S Varier.

Their efforts resulted in the establishment of one of the largest and most trusted institutions of its kind in India; the Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala in the District of Malappuram in North Kerala. D Art Forms of Kerala https://somatheeram.in/kerala-art-forms Kerala is a land of art and festivals. It has everything to entertain the people all over the world. In the arena of arts and festivals Kathakali is the best exposure of visual treat. It has mudras (palm and hand mode of expressions) Kathakali is an art with mudras. Those who know the meaning of mudras can enjoy kathakali. It has enriched with the character s and which are taken from puranas and myths of Hindu culture. In olden days Kathkali is an art exhibited only in the places. The local kings of Kerala encouraged Kathakali and they have been good art lovers and enjoyed Kathakali in every aspect. Minimun three days are the period to play Kathakali and now it seems shorted to maximum 5 hours. Kathkali would entertain you and everybody. This art form gradually changed its plays in to temple venues. There was a visionary who lived in Kerala decades ago and his name is shri. M.K.K Nair. Who has contributed so much to promote Kathakali in Kerala. There is an academy to teach Kathkali known as “kalamandalam”, and which is located at Cheruthuruthy near the Bharatha river (as Bharathapuzha to Malayalees). The great poet of Kerala, shri Vallathole Narayana Menon and shri M.K.K Nair are the initiators to start Kalamandalam. Kerala has some top masters (acharyas) who were involved in the faculty at Kalamandalam. The world famous Kathkali scholar was shri Pattikkamthody from Kalamandalam and he was a world famous Kathakali master. E Leisure "ANTI-MALAYALEE" JOKES https://www.pvariel.com/malayalees-keralites-and-their-english-accent-just-for-laugh/ F Quotes about Kerala : God's Own Country http://www.keralahoneymoons.com/blog/gods-country-land-beauty-wonders/ "MALAYALEES” ARE THE REAL INDIANS – Says Justice Markendey Katju, Former Judge, Supreme Court of Inda”. "In all respects, Malayalis (i.e.Keralites) are the real Indians, says Justice Katju. Only the Malayalis truly represent the real Indians. The mindset of a Malayali to accept anything is his unique quality.” "Posing to himself the question as to who are the real Indians, Justice Katju, in his Facebook posting, eulogized Malayalis up to the sky!” Gist of his posting is here: ” I am a Kashmiri. Therefore, I would like to call “Kashmiris” as real Indians. But, frankly speaking, only the ‘Malayalis’ can be called as the ‘real Indians’. Only the Malayalis have all the qualities which need to be possessed by an Indian." "To live unitedly with religious tolerance, one has to respect equally all sections of the society. It is only the Malayalis who truly follows this practice. For this reason alone, it needs to be said that Malayalis symbolically represents all the Indians. One needs to learn from the Malayalis.” "Malayalis can be seen on every part of the globe. Some Malayali Muslims invited me to Qatar last year. realized that there are more Malayalis there than the locals.” G Interaction 1) C V Subbaraman & M G Warrier In our country, the term "self regulation" does NOT work. In India, our experience has all along been, "Self Regulation" is "NO regulation at all". Self regulation needs a much higher level of literacy. Despite all the boast of a rich culture and tradition, something is missing in the attitude of opinion-makers. We do earnestly hope, much against hope of course, that Rupa Murthy's words will bring about some measure of good conduct amongst all whose words and deeds are working against public interest. (This is an adapted version of a response from C V Subbaraman Mysuru 🙏-Warrier) 2) Dr T V Surendran Mananthavady Interesting to read about "The Great Menons". I had the fortune of listening to Sri KPS Menon when he visited Calicut Médical College during my student days. And Sri V K Krishna Menon came to our College, during the Centenary celebration of Calicut City... Krishna Menon was The Son Of Calicut. 3) R Jayakumar Mumbai Optimization of use of resources... Suggestion to have national and regional level associations to regulate/restrict news reporting by TV channels may create more controversy and waste of energy and resources than to restrict them. There will be a national level association and an association for each state. Probably they will be controlled by the Centre. We know what happened to the unraveling of TRP Manipulation Case. The case is not allowed to move further. At present there is no TV channel giving an unbiased report. Each one has its own orientation. And we select and see the channels which give news as per our liking. Regulating the reporting of news by TV channels will amount to controlling them which will be against the freedom of the Press. I don't know whether I have understood your suggestion correctly. First time you have posted a very short article, I feel. (Immediate provocation is twenty mikes on the face of anyone prepared to face Media. Whére is the social/physical distancing? Plus twenty camera men...🙏-Warrier)
