Welcome to Warrier's COLLAGE ON Monday July 5, 2021 The "I" YOU Don't Know! https://youtu.be/7-q01mPunjc (Link Courtesy : P R R Nayar Thiruvanantapuram) Good Morning Nice Day M G Warrier Book Release : Sanathanasudha (Malayalam) By P V Viswanathan Nambudiri https://youtu.be/0mO8uaCNLJY (Link Courtesy : K N Ganapathy Atlanta US) Thought for Today : Shared by Vathsala Jayaraman Chennai ISHVARA THE PARENT AND JIVA THE CHILD The tree produces a seed, giving it its own nature; it drops the seed on the ground, and the seed slowly grows, putting out its hidden powers, until it becomes a tree like its parent; it can become nothing else, because its nature is the same as that of the parent. And so with the Jiva; like the seed he is dropped into matter by Ishvara, he slowly grows,, putting out his hidden powers, until he becomes Ishvara; he can become passing nothing else, because his nature is the same as that of his parent, Ishvara. A pleasant sweet thought about celestial force power in programming that remains powerful to last eternity till infinity. It reminds me - The popular quote from poem of William Wordsworth “Child is The Father of Man” . Seeds are every where with programme of intended growth embedded in it. The land is dry. The air is dry. But the moment a drizzle or shower arrives, it helps the dormant programme in seed get activated . The seed is universe. Ishwar is the programmer. Though we talk of computer programming for the past 30-40 years,it has been in existence since the Universe was formed/created.The miracle of formation of life in human beings,animals and plants is just the bye product of computer programming and the software created by Almighty. Even in the development of brain and formation and deletion of thought process there is software programming to alt and delete ,filter and save . What a great computer nature has bestowed on us!! Vathsala Jayaraman A Collage in Classroom Mid-40:s : Re-evaluate Expectations https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/5waystosailyouthroughhappymid40s/5-ways-to-welcome-the-mid-40s-34666/ In -the 40s, you are at the crest of your responsibilities at work and home. A prolific position at the workplace implies innumerable duties and competing with the next-gen and the rapidly changing dynamic markets. All leaves you with uncertainty and insecurities in your job. Similarly, at home, your expenses escalate with plans for higher education for kids and taking care of aging parents. With few years of retirement left, you need to reinvent your financial plans to secure your future. You must have planned earlier wisely, but it needs to be more sharpened. Look out for investment and saving plans that will help you to live a qualitative life post-retirement. Chalk out a budget for future expenses like buying a house, higher education for kids, marriage, parental care, medical bills, travel plans, and more. You can also think about turning one of your passions into commercial viability. Starting a start-up or a part-time business can help you to sail through your future life. B Personality : Ram Nath Kovind https://m.timesofindia.com/life-style/books/book-launches/rajnath-singh-javadekar-launch-two-books-on-prezs-select-speeches/amp_articleshow/79318041.cms Speeches by President of India : The ideals of justice, equality, fraternity, non-violence, universal brotherhood, inclusive growth and special concern for vulnerable segments of the society are recurrent themes in his speeches. This book contains his vision of a vibrant India of the 21st century, powered by its gifted people and guiding our world towards a safer and greener future. "As the world came to a standstill due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the president had fewer occasions of public speeches. In such troubled times, he has been leading by example. Staying within the precincts of Rashtrapati Bhavan , he has shown how one can contribute in the context of the 'new normal' and live in tune with the nature, in austerity," it said. This volume includes a special section wherein the president expresses his contemplations on Gautam Buddha and Mahatma Gandhi, and the significance of their preachings, especially in the 21st century. C Readers' Contribution : V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram Dr B C Roy This year also we celebrated 1st of July as 'Doctors' Day' in honour of Dr.B.C.Roy, the legendary physician who, in addition, was the first Chief Minister of West Bengal from 1948 to his demise in 1962. The commemoration had an added depth in the Covid 19 backdrop. Here is a small story about Dr.B.C.Roy, told to me by an elderly Bengali friend whom I don't find any reason to disbelieve. Because of an unscheduled visit to Delhi as CM, Dr Roy could not attend the wedding function of the only son of a close friend. He visited his friend's house after a few days. They were happy and felt honoured. The bride was duly introduced to him. He found her sweet and good mannered. Yet he could sense some tension in the atmosphere. In the absence of others, he asked his friend for the reason. After a few moments of silence, as if struggling how to open the topic, he said : "Bidhanji, what shall I say? The girl wants to go back to her father. If you ask why, I have no answer; nor has she. Everyone in the house likes her. She too likes all of us. Yet she wants to go home. "He heaved a sigh and continued : "It is an arranged marriage and we did enough prodding to find out whether she had any affair pulling her back. She had none. We are in a predicament." "Don't worry. I will talk to her." said the CM. The girl was summoned. He put her at ease and said very softly : "Beti, forget that you are sitting before the Chief Minister. Consider me as your father. I am trying to help you. Tell me all about you and answer all my questions frankly." The gist of the information he got was this: She was a highly educated girl with a mind of her own. Her father, a widower, was a civil engineer holding a high position in the state government. Both the father and the daughter were the only persons in the world until the latter's wedding. Every evening, they sat in the lawn in front of the house, took tea together and talked on all topics under the sun. To a question whether her father had any habits like smoking or drinking, she said : "None, except taking a little bit of opium along with the evening tea and it was my privilege to mix it with his tea." To his 'mischievous' question whether she too joined, she said vehemently : "No, sir. He wouldn't have permitted me even if I wanted." This confirmed Dr. Roy's doubt that arose when his friend said that she showed restlessness only in the evenings. With a smile he said : "Perhaps, you don't know. I am a doctor by profession and trained in the UK. Besides, I am the personal physician of Jawaharlal Nehru. I think I can solve your little problem. I shall send you a powder a small pinch of which you mix with your evening tea for a week at the end of which you will perfectly merge with your new family." He did as he said. The powder he sent was an antidote for the bad habit-forming effect of opium the traces of which unwittingly went into her tea too. D Book Review : The Checklist Manifesto https://www.thechecker.net/stories/blog/review-the-checklist-manifesto-nails-it Gawande points out what we’ve long advocated at The Checker—checklists not only ensure disciplined completion of essential steps in any process, no matter how complicated, they can efficiently guide you through those steps. It’s not only that so many processes today are complex; the sheer number of tasks most of us have to complete can cause us to easily overlook one. Even something as simple as washing your hands can be forgotten, and Gawande documents how checklists mandating hand washing have significantly lowered infections and other complications related to hospital stays. Gawande is passionate in his call for professionals to forego any psychological resistance to checklists. He maintains that professionals in all fields must have humility and accept any help they can get in organizing, managing, and completing tasks. In medicine, for example, he describes how the use of checklists can help do away with the idea that doctors are infallible, thereby leading to improved teamwork and communication. But the doctors first have to admit they can make mistakes! E Blogs & Links https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/world-of-words/equality-of-opportunity-34589/ I always feel that there are two worlds. And each one is solely diverse. The worlds of “urban” and “rural”. Nonetheless, we can witness numerous examples regarding this. Starting from the educational sector to health and infrastructures, their way of living, also awareness towards special issues, and their knowledge. As we are living in urban areas, we are full of opportunities. But people from rural areas are deprived of education, infrastructure, hospitals, electricity, Internet access, and many more. These living beings are unaware of what’s going on in their outside world, losing their connectivity. Even if we see very few numbers of government schools, hospitals are established in rural areas, but due to the worst infrastructure, the teachers, doctors never visit the place. Due to this, the people from rural areas have to come out to urban areas to find solutions. These all are known to us, as being the resident of a city like Guwahati, I have visited the rural areas which are parts of it. There are many examples we will find in our surroundings if we dig a little deep into the matter. Here the question is, why these parts are still lacking development. Because, while coming outside, they have to face lots of problems and many of those become the headlines of the news for some days. Over time, people forget the matter. F Leisure 1) Ant and Grasshopper* Ant and Grasshopper - Indian Version of story - too good and fact (Very interesting and worth sharing) Original Story: The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and laughs dances plays the summer away. Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold. .......................... Indian Version: The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs dances plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. NDTV, Times Now, CNN IBN, BBC, CNN, Asianet show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house. Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers, demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter. Mayawati states this as 'Injustice' done on Minorities'. The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking support to the Grasshopper. CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard in the heat, so as to bring about equality of poverty among Ants and Grasshoppers. Railway Minister allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'. Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the 'Prevention of Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act' [POTAGA], with effect from the beginning of the winter. Education Minister makes 'Special Reservation' for Grasshoppers in Educational Institutions & Government Services. The Ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, it's home is confiscated by Government and handed over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by NDTV, Times Now, CNN IBN, BBC, CNN. Arundhati Roy calls it 'A Triumph of Justice'. Railway Minister calls it 'Socialistic Justice'. CPM calls it 'Revolutionary Resurgence of Downtrodden' Many years later...... The Ant has since migrated to the US and set up a multi-billion dollar company in Silicon Valley. Hundreds of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite reservation somewhere in India, ....AND As a result of losing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the Grasshoppers, India is still a developing country...!!! *Forward received from K P V Karunakaran Mumbai 2) Forward received from S Venugopal Chennai Wife: Where are you? Husband : (Dutifully): At home. Wife: Are you sure? Husband: (Honestly) Yes. Wife : Turn on the mixie Husband : (turns mixie on) GaRrrreeereeeereeee... Wife: (Duly satisfied) Ok goodbye. _Another day...... Suspicious Wife: Where are you? Husband : (Dutifully) At home. Wife: Are you sure? Husband : (Honestly) Yes. Wife: (Suspicious as always) : Turn on the mixie. Husband: ( Obediently turning the mixie on) gaRrreeereeeereeee... Wife: (Satisfied) Ok goodbye. The next day, the wife decides to go home without notice, and finds her son alone and she asks him, "Son, where is your father?" Son: "I don't know, he went out with the mixie..." Moral : "A Mixie in hand saves husband only if son is taken into confidence. Before any adventure have a reliable check list* and adhere to that" *See D above G Quotes about flowers https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/flower-quotes Like : "Nature promotes mutualism. The flower nourishes the bee. The river waters quench the thirst of all living beings. And trees provide a welcoming home to so many birds and animals. There is a rhythm to this togetherness." Ram Nath Kovind (Ram Nath Kovind is an Indian politician serving as the 14th and current President of India. Prior to his presidency, he served as the 26th governor of Bihar from 2015 to 2017 and as a member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha from 1994 to 2006.)
