Warrier's COLLAGE 191/11092021

Welcome to Warrier's COLLAGE On Saturday September 11, 2021 Geeta Govindam* Ashtapadi I https://youtu.be/glI5xGhR0LA (*About Jayadeva : https://www.speakingtree.in/allslides/divotee-jayadeva-and-gita-govinda/88310) Good Morning Nice Day M G Warrier RBI Kehta Hai : https://youtu.be/FBjUQhjeBfk https://www.rbi.org.in/commonman/English/Scripts/fame.aspx (Links Courtesy : Kiran Warrier Mumbai) A Messages 1) C V Subbaraman Mysuru I - National Assets Monetization Program Before commenting on NMP, let me pray to Lord Ganesha today once again that He bestow SADBUDDHI to all so that they do not indulge in deliberate misleading comments. NMP is a good idea. The anti Modi Brigade has immediately commented that this government is selling domestic silver! To them: I revel in holding gold and silver but when I merely estimate what it is worth, it is a bad thing!! What is the remedy to this misleading conclusion? Is pledging our assets to raise money for our own development with an effective EMI bad ? Subbaraman II Collage of September 9 : Emotions Emotions! Are they good or bad? One cannot say whether they are good or bad because emotions are inevitable result of human reactions to given situations? When a child is born in a family, people feel "happy" and they celebrate. When some one dear or near dies, people shed tears. If only logic should prevail, and Man knows that birth and death are natural phenomena one should not feel happy or sad. 2) M G Warrier Lag between jabs This refers to The Hindu editorial "The lag between jabs" (September 9). There is nothing unusual in someone feeling discriminated and approaching Court for legal remedy. Prima facie, Court's direction to allow scheduling second vaccine after a gap of 28 days from first one also stands to reason. Still, somewhere there are deep-rooted inadequacies in the common man's understanding of the roles of various limbs of governance and judiciary. One gets a feeling that there is trust deficit in the efficacy of various limbs of governance. This may be also the result of the slow pace at which the government machinery is able to respond due to various constraints. Issues which attract media attention because of their sensational nature, real, or imaginary, as in the cases where courts are able to prioritise as they relate to basic rights, as has happened here, get resolved while 'normal' matters get adjourned. Perhaps, time is opportune for a national level debate on the possibility of reducing delays at various levels of government and judiciary. M G Warrier Mumbai B Readers' Contribution 1) Piece of Mind* : V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram One of the prominent landmarks in the capital of Kerala is the Chandrasekharan Nair Stadium situated in the very heart of the city. It is named after the first Inspector General of the Kerala State who had nurtured the sports-minded youngsters in the police force. N Chandrasekharan Nair joined the police force of the princely state of Travancore straightaway as an inspector. At that time, the state government had taken a decision to appoint law graduates as inspectors in order to improve the quality as well as efficiency of the force and he was among the first batch so recruited. The Commissioner of police deputed one senior Head Constable (let us say, one Kuttan Pillai) to give them training. The training programme went on smoothly until a day came when the trainer suddenly changed his tone and manner. He abandoned the garb of respect and started using words like NEE, EDAA, PODAA, PATTEE, etc. The trainees naturally got offended and they went to the Commissioner and lodged a complaint. The Commissioner summoned the trainer who promptly appeared and saluted. "Kuttan Pillai" "Yes, Sir" "These trainee officers have complained to me that you are using bad words to address them. Is it true?" "Yes, Sir. It is true." "What did you say, Kuttan Pillai?" "Sir, I said it is true. I used disrespectful words to address them. I propose to use fouler words." "How dare you talk like that." The Commissioner was trembling with rage. "Explain", he thundered. "Sir, this is part of the training. I have great respect for these young men who belong to very decent families and who are highly educated. But, hereafter, they are going to deal mostly with fellows who speak foul words and know only that language. To tackle such people they must be familiar with that language. If I don't teach them the language of the rowdies and murderers, I will not be doing justice to the job entrusted to me." The Commissioner smiled. He said : "Kuttan Pillai, you may go and duly complete the job. These young men, your trainees, have no complaint. "Nair and his friends nodded. Times have changed. (*Attention Spell-checkers! Caption added by me. Incorrigible me. By changing spelling of the first word also readers won't know what's in the last word (Mind). I think the present generation doesn't get the kind of "seasoning" Kuttan Pillai gave to his trainees. We got thick-skinned from real life experiences-🙏-Warrier) 2) Dr Krishna the Counselor : Vathsala Jayaraman Chennai There was a king. He sent his son, the prince to a Guru for training in usage of swords and daggers. The Guru taught all nuances of the sword fight and trained him for 15 years. It was decided to show case the talents of the prince before the king in the royal palace. So many heroes from other kingdoms could not face the prince. The prince could easily win his Guru also. (Continued at H2) 3) Dr Charan Singh charan singh (@CharanSingh60) Tweeted: Unity in Diversity - 5 Those persons are true who love God from heart And those are false, who have different things in heart and mouth Sheikh Farid, Rag Assa, 488, SGGS दिलहु मुहबति जिन‌ सेई सचिआ जिन मनि होरु मुखि होरु सि कांडे कचिआ सेख फरीद, राग आसा https://twitter.com/CharanSingh60/status/1436044955215024166?s=20 C Peep into the past https://offtheshelf.com/2020/08/historical-fiction-ancient-societies/ There has always been a huge part of me that wished to become an archaeologist, specifically with an focus on ancient civilizations. Ancient societies hold enough intrigue on their own, but when combined with a strong historical fiction narrative, the worlds reveal themselves. These seven great novels scratch that archaeological itch and bring the ancient worlds to life. D Books 1) Looking Forward : 5 Books on Future https://fivebooks.com/reader-list/the-best-books-on-future-antonio_gallo/ 2) Books* by M G Warrier Assorted Letters of Dissent https://www.amazon.in/dp/B07J3Z7T2D/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_3NAKFM7F9ZZF2ZTRENVX The book “Assorted Letters of Dissent” is a collection of select responses on current issues, most of which were published in print media, in recent times. The letters included here are submitted versions, in most cases. No effort has been made to organize them chronologically or subject-wise. Picked up at random from hundreds of submissions, these responses convey the concerns and anxieties of an independent observer who doesn’t have any constituency interests in the subjects covered. Therefore, the views expressed could appear to be different from the ‘lobbying type’. Still there is a purpose and the aim is to influence opinion-making ultimately beneficial to common man. This book will help readers who would like to look at issues from an angle different from the ‘normal’, where the ‘normal’ stands for the perception artificially created by external influences including print and electronic media. The subjects covered include (a) Developments in the financial sector, (b) Economic development, (c) Role of the Reserve Bank of India, (d) HR-related issues (e) Social issues and (f) Post-retirement life. *My books are being introduced for the benefit of new readèrs. E International Literacy Day https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/sirius/international-literacy-day-37241/ September 8 was observed as World Literacy Day. Posted online comments : ' in addition to appropriately introducing the context and purport of \"literacy day\", the article has covered several aspects of literary. it\'s a shame on the remaining 90 percent of the world population, if they are keeping 75 crore people illiterate in 2021. but why blame only the literate people? how can the rich and the powerful defend themselves from the accusation that they are keeping more than 20 percent of the world population hungry, as a source of cheap labour? people and media are hesitant to talk about such issues as they will become unpopular among their elite circles.' F Jokes about writers https://writingandwellness.com/2019/07/08/7-of-my-favorite-jokes-about-writers/ Like : "A hungry lion roamed through the jungle looking for his next meal when he came upon two men. One man was sitting under a tree reading a book. The other man was writing in a notebook. The lion quickly pounced in the man reading the book and devoured him. Even the king of the jungle knows that reader's digest and writers cramp." G Quotes about Sunday https://sayingimages.com/sunday-quotes/ Like : Sunday is a perfect day to choose a new path in life. Don't be afraid of changes, they come when they are really needed. Have a wonderful Sunday. H 1) Continued from A1 And to raise any admonition like "why are you crying like a woman?" is an insult to womanhood. Are not men emotional? Even gods and sages have been emotional. Did not Rama cry on seeing Sita abducted? Did not Rama get angry when the God of Ocean did not appear despite his praying for three days? Did not Rishis feel angry and give curses on wrongdoers? In fact, Valmiki got emotional when he saw one of the birds being shot by a hunter and this compassion gave birth to the great Epic Ramayana, the Aadi Kaavya. Many poems represent outward burst of inner feelings of emotions. Emotions are inevitable. We cannot say whether they are good or bad. Compassion, sympathy, love which also bring tears , are the cause for the birth of many charitable organisations across the world. Subbaraman 2) Continued from B2 Now the Guru asked the prince to direct the dagger against him. The prince hesitated as matter of regard and respect. He kept back the sword inside the sheath and looked at the king with pride. Guru just removed his sword from the sheath and directed the same towards the prince. The prince began to bleed heavily and fell down. The king tried to point his sword towards the Guru, who calmed the king and gave necessary treatment to the prince. Within a few minutes the prince regained normalcy. The Guru said, "As per war strategy, you should not show sympathy even to the nearest. In case you hesitate, you should know what will transpire. As a Guru it is my duty to teach you this aspect also. Since you are my student, I made the injury less risky." The king and the prince felt happy. Arjuna also hesitated to attack his grand pa, Guru Drona and his own cousins. Modern psychologists talk of non- fulfillment of motive causing stress, followed by behavioural problems such as compensation, inferiority complex, reaction formation, self projection as a generous sympathetic person, repression and escapism. These things if not treated properly lead to a condition called 'schizhophrenia, difficult to be treated. Educational psychology and periodical counselling sessions, making the patient give vent to his feelings and lessons in behavioural psychology are measures adopted to bring back the person to normalcy. We find Arjuna more or less affected by all these symptoms. First Krishna allows Arjuna express his emotions, listens to him carefully,then starts his counselling sessions slowly and steadily, often in Q & A pattern and goes deep into body, intellect, mind and soul-the entire treatment couched in Geetamrita. We see Dr Krishna, the psychiatrist following all the steps that are dealt with by 19th century doctors-not in a one to one session but in an open war field. The word 'Psyche' itself is derived from Greek meaning 'soul'. No wonder Bhagavatgita is the origin of modern psychology. Dr Krishna is a Psychiatrist. Vathsala Jayaraman
