Welcome to Warrier's COLLAGE On Friday September 24, 2021 Gyana Yoga https://youtu.be/EijmfagFw20 (Sarvapriyananda ) Good Morning Nice Day M G Warrier A Messages 1) C V Subbaraman Mysuru In the past we had the fancy of having long names. One of my classmates in school was named Thirumala Venkata Subramanian and it occupied two lines in the Attendance Register. Strangely, he got employment in a foreign embassy office in India and he shortened its name just to Mani! A bisyllabic name has been fashionable for quite some - both for males and females. The British monarch having longest name was Edward VIII - Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David Windsor.

Enhanced adoption of technology will give impetus to productivity, growth and income. Leveraging technology in implementing government schemes, training and skill development programme for the unemployed, promoting women friendly work atmosphere and supporting education of the poor and marginalized sections would be areas of focus as we embark on our journey beyond COVID-19. Income and job creation with digitalisation and innovation can bring about a new age of prosperity for a large number of people. Many of us have grown up reading Mahatma Gandhi's Talisman5 in text books – “I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt…Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen and ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny?” As we strive to build a stronger and resilient India, this pearl of wisdom that we learnt long ago remains as relevant even today. Thank you. Stay Safe. Namaskar! 2) Sony-ZEE Merger Proposal https://indianexpress.com/article/explained/explained-zee-entertainment-merger-with-sony-pictures-networks-7527016/ What are the contours of the deal?

C 18th Century Poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge https://poets.org/poet/samuel-taylor-coleridge Excerpts : Samuel Taylor Coleridge, a leader of the British Romantic movement, was born on October 21, 1772, in Devonshire, England. His father, a vicar of a parish and master of a grammar school, married twice and had fourteen children. The youngest child in the family, Coleridge was a student at his father's school and an avid reader. After his father died in 1781, Coleridge attended Christ's Hospital School in London, where he met lifelong friend Charles Lamb. While in London, he also befriended a classmate named Tom Evans, who introduced Coleridge to his family. Coleridge fell in love with Tom's older sister, Mary. D Water, Milk, Kindness : Life Positive https://www.lifepositive.com/archive/jan-mandala-2021/mandala-jan-2021 Excerpts : Milk of human kindness Today, consumers all over the world are divided into three categories: non-vegetarians, vegetarians, and vegans. Although the current scenario requires us to become vegans not only to reverse the damage done to our climate, environment, and animal kingdom but also to gain good health, most of us find it difficult to make the switch. Given our conditioned habits and patterns on one hand and our concern and conscience on the other, we juggle them with our level of guilt. Milk, which every Indian child grows up consuming, is a prime product of dairy farming, which is a dominant source of cow exploitation. Jamsheer, a 25-year-old from Malappuram, Kerala, has taken the step to introduce kindness into his dairy farm. In his ‘semi hi-tech farm,’ Jamsheer has many facilities. “The cows have fresh water all the time through the automatic water bowl system installed at the farm. To reduce the heat in the farm, I have also installed ceiling fans and a mist unit cooling system. The cows can also rest on rubber mats spread on the floors,” he shares. The cows are fed with hybrid Napier grass grown in the farm, corn powder, bran, cotton seed cake, and a probiotic mixture. He says that the grass cultivation is a major factor that influenced the success of his farm. E Gyana Yoga : Speaking Tree article https://www.speakingtree.in/blog/learnings-of-jnana-yoga "The Lord said: “Seeing that the whole universe is comprised of one Paramatman, is pervaded by the same Prakriti and the same Purusha and is one with Purusha and Prakriti, one should neither praise nor condemn other's natures and actions." F Leisure Visitor's Etiquette https://www.realsimple.com/work-life/work-life-etiquette/manners/houseguest?slide=492d119b-f22f-4114-8257-969884f31dda#492d119b-f22f-4114-8257-969884f31dda Excerpts : "Follow House Rules" When you arrive, gently inquire about how things are done to avoid any misunderstandings. What time does everyone usually wake up and go to bed? Anything you should know about the kids or pets? Should you leave the thermostat alone? Pick up on other house rules—like whether you should take your shoes off or if you shouldn’t bring your phone to the dinner table—by being in tune with your hosts. Also, refrain from finishing the leftovers or milk (but if you do, replace it). G Quotes by poets about poetry https://www.writerswrite.co.za/33-quotes-by-poets-on-poetry/ I wish our clever young poets would remember my homely definitions of prose and poetry; that is prose; words in their best order; – poetry; the best words in the best order. ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge (Samuel Taylor Coleridge was an English poet, literary critic, philosopher and theologian who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets. He also shared volumes and collaborated with Charles Lamb, Robert Southey, and Charles Lloyd) H 1) Continued from A1 In the case of institutions long names are indeed continued to be given but surely they are better known by their acronymised shortened names like Nabard, for instance. Coming to longest names of places: some examples: Venkatanarasimharajuvaripeta is the name of a railway station in Andhra. (I don't know if now in Telengana). Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg, United States Tweebuffelsmeteenskootmorsdoodgeskietfontein, South Africa Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, Wales I wonder whether they are real or imaginary. In any case, please do not ask me to pronounce these names! The longest word in English dictionary is said to be "Honoroficabilitudinitatibous" used only once (Shakespeare in Love's Labours Lost)*, meaning just honour!
