Subbaraman 3) R Jayakumar Many dimensions of happiness I fully agree with Warrier, that the real happiness is derived from making others happy, specially through sharing with and caring for the poor. I don't know what government can do to make the poor happy but I have this my recent experience to share. (Continued at H2) B Book Review : Wings of Fire https://www.zoomtventertainment.com/lifestyle/books/article/book-review-wings-of-fire/711071 Renowned scientist and former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam from 2002 to 2007 is well known across India and abroad as well. The recipient of India’s highest civilian awards – Padma Bhushan, Padma Vibhushan and Bharat Ratna, his autobiography was always going to be a bestseller from the moment it was announced. The silver-haired pioneer’s autobiography is jointly penned by Abdul Kalam and Arun Tiwari. It is a must-read for every Indian, for his inspiring journey from a modest background to the journey up the ranks in his career as well as popularity with the common man. He appealed to everyone, or at least, most of us because of his simplicity. He was like the Rahul Dravid of Indian politics, excellence with his vocation is unquestionable but as down to Earth as anyone can be despite fame and glory all over the world. C Information for readers : From Warrier 1) Back issues of COLLAGE* Collage is being regularly posted @www.warriersblog.com *I'm not able to comply with requests for earlier issues of COLLAGE-Warrier 2) WarriersViews Blog Last two years, I have been regularly posting short pieces at : https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/time-management-in-uncertain-times-37344/ Online comments are allowed at the Blog. D Readers' Contribution 1) Art & Science of stealing : Vathsala Jayaraman Chennai I read with interest Shri Babusenan's take on the art of stealing interestingly narrated with examples. Stealing is not a new business. It has been in existence for thousands of years. A small corporate East India Company was able to loot the whole India within 50 years throwing the blame on British Kingdom. Stealing is in the blood of some people. It is their religion. It is their God. Though there are straight ways to make money, they have a thrill in stealing. In villages, boys used to say that there is nothing like getting into the mango grove, steal mangoes and eat. I did wonder how one gets into the habit of stealing. Are they trained for the same? In Vadapalani Chennai, there is a gang which trains jobless boys to steal. (Continued at H1) V T Panchapagesan responds : A practical thief with broad outlook went to a Temple while the Priest was about to close The Door. The Thief who was inside the temple, had a conversation with the Priest..like this.... "If you make an alarm, no doubt people outside will come and catch me . By this what do you gain except receiving a bouquet and some praise, words of appreciation.... Instead listen to me well .. I will take all the ornaments leaving the temple. You will raise an alarm the moment I have left. People will come making various enquiries. Play safe without giving my identity....We can share 50:50 in the deal. I will come to give you half the stolen jewels.... You and I can be happy with a comfortable living by this encashing the jewels as and when need arises for our living.. Let us accept the deal keeping and maintaining mutual trust....... Edhu Eppadi.... V T Panchapagesan (But, Sir, this is what is going on and they have made it legal worldwide. Like income tax regime, the procedure is complicated-🙏-Warrier) C V Subbaraman adds another story : There was a rose garden of a king. A boy crept into it and collected some fresh roses. He was caught by watchmen along with the flowers and was being taken to the King's court for trial and punishment. On the way, the boy's father spotted the boy being taken by King's watchmen. He asked the watchmen. The watchmen said that the boy stole roses from the garden. The father looked at the boy and said: "Defend yourself if you can. Vaai ulla pillai pizhaikkum. A boy with a mouth will save himself." The boy took the cue. He ate all the fresh roses. When he reached the court the watchmen could not prove the case as there were no roses with him, which he was alleged to have plucked. He was let off by the King. "Vai Ulla Pillai pizhaikkum!" Subbaraman (There's another similar story about a famous criminal lawyer Malloor Govinda Pillai. He's alleged to have swallowed a bullet in the open court to save an accused whom he was defending. There's a mention about the incident in the following narrative. V Babusenan joins with more details. See D2 : https://youtu.be/yrXZ5Pqi--w 2) V Babusenan about Advocate Malloor Govinda Pillai (Responding to C V Subbaraman) You are right, Sir. 'Vayulla pillai pizhaikkum' That is how our clever politicians escape punishment. Have you heard about Malloor Govinda Pillai of the pre-independence years? He was a very prominent criminal lawyer of the Trivandrum bar, out to save anyone from the clutches of law, provided he had money. In fact, there was a popular saying in those days : "If you have thousand rupees to spare and Malloor with you, go and kill anyone." The stories as to how he saved many from the gallows were as good as the best crime thrillers. Here is one : In a boundary dispute, one lost his balance and shot dead his neighbour. Once they were close friends and, out of friendship, they purchased adjacent plots to construct houses. They gradually fell apart on account of the machinations of the womenfolk and that led to the tragedy. Malloor took up this case. It was a clear case of killing, though unintentional, and people wondered as to how he was going to save the accused. During the course of the trial, Malloor tackled the solid evidence. He dexterously swallowed the bullet retrieved from the body and replaced another slightly bigger one. Nobody noticed. Then he demonstrated in the court that the bullet didn't go inside the barrel of the gun! That was enough. Stealing is a crime the gravity of which depends on what is stolen, the only exception being the human heart where it is universally acclaimed. Who is a better stealer of hearts than Lord Krishna himself? I feel happy that my small write-up has evoked such response from you and Smt Vathsala Jayaraman. I thank you both. With warm regards, Babusenan E From the Archives 1) Men in khaki made the police proud! https://www.thehindu.com/opinion/open-page/the-men-in-khaki-did-the-police-proud/article2958157.ece Excerpts : "In early 1970s, owning a two-wheeler in Trivandrum was a milestone in a middle class family's growth trajectory. Availing myself of a two-wheeler loan from my employer, I too became a proud owner of a ‘second-hand' Lambretta purchased from my friend who moved to another city on transfer. At that time, the waiting period to get a new scooter was two to three years after booking. Those days city roads were much less crowded and one could move slowly, stop and give way to any faster vehicle, and still be on time at the destination. One could travel from one end to the other end of Trivandrum city by scooter in less than half an hour at 30 kmph! Life was so comfortable." 2) Resources Management https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/resources-management-challenges-and-opportunities-11102/ Excerpts : “There is a sufficiency in the world for man’s need but not for man’s greed.” – Mahatma Gandhi “Three great forces rule the world: stupidity, fear and greed.” – Albert Einstein Context 1 for the above quotes is a media report that in the United States, jobless claims hit 3.3 million last week (3rd week of March 2020) quadrupling the previous record. Context 2 is a call given while talking to media, by former RBI Governor Dr Raghuram Rajan to the rich nations to mobilize resources to under-developed countries. The appeal is welcome. He added, “think of the poor countries that already start with a paucity of ventilators”. The problem is real. But, having been in India for a reasonably long period of time before his opting to accept a lucrative job in the US and for about 4 years till his tenure as RBI Governor came to an end, he is not unaware of India’s ability to meet challenges. India’s poverty will not stand in the way of procuring ventilators to save precious lives. F Leisure 1) Proverbs Vs Proverbs* Every Proverb Has An Equal And An Opposite Proverb! All good things come to those who wait. But Time and tide wait for no man. The pen is mightier than the sword. But Actions speak louder than words. Wise men think alike But Fools seldom differ. The best things in life are free. But There's no such thing as a free lunch. Slow and steady wins the race. But Time waits for no man. Look before you leap. But Strike while the iron is hot. (He who hesitates is lost -APR) Do it well or not at all. But Half a loaf is better than none. Birds of a feather flock together. But Opposites attract. Don't cross your bridges before you come to them. But Forewarned is forearmed. Doubt is the beginning of wisdom But Faith will move mountains. Great starts make great finishes. But It ain't over until it's over. Practice makes perfect. But All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Silence is golden. But The squeaky wheel gets the oil. You're never too old to learn. But You can't teach old dog new tricks. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. But One man's meat is another man's poison. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. But Out of sight, out of mind. Too many cooks spoil the broth. But Many hands make light work. Hold fast to the words of your ancestors. But Wise men make proverbs and fools repeat them... *Received from A P Ramadurai Cheñnai 2) Churning* The word Churning takes our mind to the portrait of Lord Krishna standing behind Yashoda who is churning the curd to take the butter out and Krishna is better known as navaneetha Chora or butter thief. Bhagavatha Purana talks of Churning of milky ocean by Devas and asuras using the mount Manthara as the churning rod and Vasuki as the rope with Lord Vishnu in the form of Kurma supporting the entire process. When Vasuki's head vomited forth poison that threatened to fall into the ocean and contaminate the amrita, Shiva held it in his throat, a feat that turned his throat blue. We all know that there were many many bye products such as moon, Parijatham, Kalpa Vriksham, Elephant Airavatha, Goddess Lakshmi, Paancha Janyam and many others. The churning of milky ocean by Devas and Asuras, in addition to being an interesting anecdote in Hindu mythology is highly symbolic. It represents the spiritual endeavour of human beings to gain immortality or amritatvam through yogic practices, concentration, self control, detachment, austerity and renunciation. It is interesting to note that all these phenomena find a place in this event. The‘churning' turns cream into butter. The essence of churning is with the right tools we can transform a liquid into something that is more solid, longer-lasting, and more valuable. But churning is not as simple as that. It represents the churning of the world around us bringing about changes in technology, the economy, politics, the environment, social attitudes and so on. Within the last 30 years how many changes we have faced? The world is becoming more and more complex, though it is stated to be within one's palm. Every one feels the emotional churning when we face the ambiguous ,volatile, unpredictable situations. Now a days the word 'Churn Rate' is more often used as a business jargon. What Is Churn Rate? The churn rate, also known as the rate of attrition or customer churn, is the rate at which customers stop doing business with an entity. This is common in Telecom, TV, Satellite and internet industries where customers very often change their plan according to favourable schemes offered by various service providers. Industries whose income essentially depend on subscriptions suffer a lot because of churning and it may impede the growth. This churning also happens when hundreds of employees leave a concern on some grounds. There will be an initial shock and turbulence in the system even as we see ripples while churning the buttermilk. Immediate hiring and reorganization is not simple. It is often termed as creative destruction. This churning phenomenon is more common in Insurance sector where the facilities and premia change quite often. Churning involves the relationships that are constantly formed, broken, and reformed. Organizations vacillate, constantly initiating and terminating relationships. These actions result in churning. Not to talk of churning in politics as we saw the agitation in Maharashtra due to Coalition Govt and horse trading. Everything is a part of churning. Still worse are the effects of churning when stock markets fail and there is down trend in economy. There is already a churning sensation in our stomachs when we face failures and unfortunate events in life. While we try to analyse the magnitude of churning in every phase of life, we feel allergic to the word 'churning' itself, even if it is stated to bring in a transformation in human beings. Bagvan's initiation of Gita to Arjuna also is stated to be a churning process which brought about transformation in Partha. *Received from Vathsala Jayaraman via Group mail G Quotes about skye watch https://everydaypower.com/sky-quotes/ Like : “Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work.” – A P J Abdul Kalam (Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam was an Indian aerospace scientist who served as the 11th president of India from 2002 to 2007. He was born and raised in Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu and studied physics and aerospace engineering.) H 1) Continued from D1 They dig a small hole of six inches in the earth and train boys to take out things using index and middle finger alone. Within two months he is a pick pocketeer. It is a roadway training institute. Digging subway between the vaults of the bank and opposite forsaken building was a famous case in Maharashtra. There was another famous theft by a locker operator. A gentleman opened a locker in the bank in the normal course. Nobody knew he was a blacksmith. While operating locker once a week, he took out wax impressions of many keyholes of other lockers and prepared duplicate keys of the bank as well as the customer. Within six months he was able to empty many lockers during the normal course of his visit. That area was occupied by many jewellery merchants. One of them lodged a complaint. The bank started looking out for the frequent visitor and after a month they were able to trace the culprit. But they could not recover anything. His locker was closed Loss is a loss. In one of the Nationalised Banks in Tiruchy, a sales guy of a corporate stole 'Cash received' stamp and forged the signature of the Cashier. Without depositing money, he could get the counterfoil signed by the cashier. It was a steel manufacturing outlet having huge business. The guy submitted report to his office in Chennai forwarding the counterfoils. After 6 months the company found out a difference of Rs65 lakh between their figure and the bank's statement. Enquiries were on. The cashier pleaded ignorance, yet was suspended. As the case was being investigated, it was found out that on three days on which the counterfoils were stated to have been signed by the cashier, he was on duty in some other local branch. Further threatening made the guy accept the crime. The steel made him steal . An Engineer wants his son to become an Engineer, a doctor wants to see his son as a surgeon and an auditor would like his children shine as auditors. Likewise a burgler would like his son to become a thief! Noticing that his father is growing old, the son of a burglar asked his father to teach him the art of stealing so that he could continue the family tradition after his father. The father knew that if one wanted to learn swimming, he had to jump into the water. Ok, said the father and he took his son when he intended burglary in a house. Once inside, he opened a closet and asked his son to find out what was inside. No sooner had the lad stepped in, then the father slammed the door shut and bolted it making such a noise in the process that the whole house was awakened. Then he himself slipped quietly away. Inside the closet the boy was terrified, angry and puzzled as to how he was going to make his escape. Then an idea came to him. He began to make a noise like a cat; whereupon a servant lit a candle and opened the closet to let the cat out. The boy jumped out as soon as the closet door opened and everyone gave chase. Observing a well beside the road he threw a large stone into it and hid in the shadows; then stole away while his pursuers peered into the depths hoping to see the burglar drown. Back home again the boy forgot his anger in his eagerness to tell his story. But his father said. "Why tell me the tale? You are here. That is enough. You have learnt the trade. Escaping without being noticed is really an art, though not ethical. 2) Continued from A3 Just a couple days back I experienced how poor people feel happy when we share with them. At the entrance to our local church every evening I see a beggar sitting with a tin bowl in his hand who looks slightly retarded and lame. Without fail I give, just like you do, a tenner in his hand whenever I pass through him. I did not know where and how he lived and I have never seen him wearing a smile on his face. The other day I happened to go to a place a distance away from my area and it was raining. As I was walking on the road I saw this beggar coming towards my direction slightly limping to his one side, carrying some food packets in his hand and ofcourse drenching in the rain . Out of curiosity I stopped to see where he was going and if he would notice me. He straight went to the side of the road where a young mother was sitting with two kids under some roof which gave some relief from the pouring rain. As I shifted my eyes to the family the woman saw me staring at her and her children and possibly got annoyed and told something to the man (the beggar) pointing towards me as if making a complaint. The man looked at me and instantly brought a broad smile on his face and told something to the woman. She too looked at me and smiled as if acknowledging what the man told her. I moved away from there feeling happy in my heart because two persons without proper shelter from rain were happy at that moment. However, there are many things that brings sadness in our life. Today Shri Sitendra Kumar has sent a forward in Hindi 'How A Retired Major General Ignored By His Children Dies' with a photo of the skeletal remains of the dead body of the Major abandoned by his three rich children in a locked room. Just looking at the photo made me feel restless in the morning. (Shri Parthasarathy is kind enough to send an English translation of the article for benefit of those who can't read Hindi). At least one of the children could have been intellegent enough to keep the disabled father in a care home for three months, when they are so wealthy. What is the use of getting attractive pensions recommended by 7th and 8th pay commissions! Like Happiness, Sadness is also part of our life.

Vedantgurve Namah : Here ends Shri Sudarshana Ashtakam The Warrier's Collage 211 has a very important feature that is most relevant in the present pandemic situations. Yes, the prayer sloka Sudharsana Ashtagam by Swami Vedanta Desigan is a collection of eight slokas ( Ashtagam in Sanskrit is eight) sung in praise of Lord Sudarshsna. Of Sudharshana we will see later. Now, Swami Desigan, a Vaishnavite scholar and guru is stated to have composed this rare hymn to protect the people at Tiruputkuzhi an outskirt of Kancheepuram when the people suffered due to some pandemic. Reciting this sloka, the people of Tiruputkuzhi saved themselves from the pandemic. The entire earth is in a similar situation as was at Tiruputkuzhi. Let us gain from the recitation of this hymn. Thanks Warrier Ji. JAYA JAYA SRISUDARSANA. ....... SRB . ............
