Perhaps, time is opportune to set up a permanent and competent Water Resources Management Authority at national level. There are several authorities at different levels at present which have their roles in their restricted areas of operation. The suggestion is to set up a powerful statutory authority comparable to Election Commission or CAG with powers to handle all water resources related issues across the country. The body should have functional freedom within the contours of the policies of the governments of the day on all matters including : 1) Water Resources Management and Budgeting. 2) Inspection and overseeing of water sources, dams, waterways etc to ensure optimum use and safety of population in affected areas. 3) Sorting out disputes arising from economic and safety issues. 4) Deciding on construction, reconstruction and decommissioning of bridges, dams etc M G WARRIER MUMBAI C Spirituality/Faith 1) Dr Charan Singh charan singh (@CharanSingh60) Tweeted: Unity in Diversity - 53 नामु अमोलकु रतनु है पूरे सतिगुर पासि सतिगुर सेवै लगिआ कढि रतनु देवै परगासि धंनु वडभागी वढभागिआ जो आइ मिले गुर पासि रामदास, सिरीराग Naam is priceless jewel True Guru helps to manifest it Lucky are those who meet such a Guru 40, SGGS https://twitter.com/CharanSingh60/status/1453446656846807044?s=20 2) Human Body & Temple Architecture "(PDF) HINDU TEMPLE AND THE STRUCTURE OF HUMAN BODY: COMPARISON" https://www.researchgate.net/publication/343713801_HINDU_TEMPLE_AND_THE_STRUCTURE_OF_HUMAN_BODY_COMPARISON (Dr Chitra Nashik sent a video on a related subject.

They are also known as Vedanta, the end of the Veda. In the purest sense, they are not Sruti (revealed truths) but rather commentaries which explain the essence of the veda (revealed knowledge). The Upanishads are found mostly in the concluding part of the Brahmanas and in the Aranyakas.[1] All Upanishads have been passed down in oral tradition. More than 200 are known, of which the first dozen or so, the oldest and most important, are variously referred to as the principal, main (mukhya) or old Upanishads. With the Bhagavad Gita and the Brahmasutra (known collectively as the Prasthanatrayi),[2]the mukhya Upanishads provide a foundation for several later schools of Indian philosophy (vedanta), among them, two influential monistic schools of Hinduism.[note 1][note 2][note 3] D Books A reader wanted to know whether Advaita Ashrama publications are available for purchase elsewhere. The answer is, yes. https://www.amazon.in/dp/B00LHPKEV2/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_NMHQQJA8JT4097DMKS2S?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 E Wildlife : Madras Courier Hyenas : A neglected category "Hyenas Are Not Villains Of The Wild: Here's Why | Madras Courier" https://madrascourier.com/environment/hyenas-are-not-villains-of-the-wild-heres-why/ Excerpts : "There is precious little research on the striped hyena found in India, yet another indicator of how unappealing the animal is, even in scientific and funding circles" The little that is known is ground-breaking, to say the least. Biologist Priya Singh reveals that despite their all-encompassing reputation as scavengers, the hyenas have a varied diet. Singh has found not only bones and skulls of cattle (and baboons, that eerily look like human skulls) but also seeds and pods, suggesting an omnivorous diet. Dr IP Bopana, a wildlife specialist who studied the striped hyena extensively, said the animals, usually solitary foragers, formed a family-based unit when it came to raising their young. “Dens here were a complex of multiple simple dens,” he observed, “you have multiple groups and small families living in them.” These finds, however, are few and far between. The striking similarity in their diet and increasing pressure on their habitat often drives hyenas close to human settlements. This behaviour and their association with carrion not only gives rise to the myriad of ghastly lore, but it also exposes them to horrifying conflicts. They fall prey to hunts, automobile accidents, poacher’s snares and attacks from scared villagers. These attacks tend to increase in the winter months when the mothers would venture into the village to find food for their young. F Leisure 1) I am still laughing* Once a Bright and Intelligent young man went for an IAS (Indian Civil Service) interview. He was asked - Q 1 : When did India get Independence? He answered : The efforts started long back; but could succeed in 1947. Q 2 : Who were the persons, who played important role in this fight for Independence? Answer : There are many people, who were involved and contributed in this. If I give a name, it will be injustice to others. Q 3 : Do you think, Corruption is the greatest enemy of the country? Answer : A committee is investigating in this matter. I can give a correct reply to this only after seeing the report. The Interview Board was impressed by his original ideas. They asked him to wait outside; but also advised him not to reveal the questions, as they may ask the same questions to other candidates also. When the young man went out of the room, the next candidate (C2) inquired about the questions asked. The young man said that he had promised the interview board not to disclose the questions. But, Smart C2 found a way out. "Tell me the answer you gave." The young man, thought it to be okay, as he was not going back on his words of "not disclosing the QUESTIONS". So he gave him the three answers which C2 quickly learnt by heart. When C2 went in for interview, this is what happened. Q 1 : When were you born? C2 : The efforts started long back, but could succeed in 1947. Interviewers got confused...they asked next question. Q 2 : What is your father's name? C2 : There are many people, who were involved and contributed in this. If I give a name, it will be injustice to others. The board members were shocked at the reply..they said. Q 3 : Are you mad? C2 : A committee is investigating in this matter. I can give a correct reply to this only after seeing the report. *Forward received from T J Kurup Thiruvanantapuram (If you know the identity of C2 who was selected, please don't reveal 🙏-Warrier) 2) Consultation charges* "I would like you to have a look at my shoes and tell me whether they are worth mending," asked the physician of a cobbler. "It is not worth spending money on them" said the cobbler, after turning the shoes this way and that way and examining them. " All Right, thank you" said the doctor and turned to go. "Two Rupees pl" said the cobbler. "Two Rupees! For what?" asked the Doctor. "You have not done anything" Cobbler said, "Neither did you the other day. You examined me and charged me Rupees Twenty Five after telling me that there is nothing wrong with me." Professionals like doctors and lawyers consider their time precious and charge their clients for consultation. The same does not hold good for cobblers, tailors, electricians and so on. Time is precious for everyone. *Received from Vathsala Jayaraman (I remember an Eye Doctor in Thiruvananthapuram. He saw patients who had taken prior appointment only. One day Nayar reached the Clinic at 6 p m after taking an appointment. He found 5 persons already waiting there. And the board indicated "Consultation : 6 p m to 8 p m" Nayar's turn came at 7 p m. While leaving the Consultation Room, Nayar hesitantly mentioned to the Doctor : "Doctor, I was given appointment at 6 p m" Doctor : "Oh, you are first time here? 6 O'clock is the time I give to all. They come inside in the order they reach here!") 3) Useful experience* Some days ago, I came to know a girl on the Internet. After some chat, I felt that we had connected at a deeper level. Yesterday, she asked me to visit her house and said, "My husband is on a business trip, and I'm alone at home." I was very cautious and asked, "Will your husband suddenly come back?" She said, "No, but just in case he does, you just say that you are from UrbanClap and that your company sent you to clean the house. And then, clean the glass or something. Anyway, a festival is coming, my husband won't suspect a thing." Fast forward, I was at her house and what a big coincidence - Not even minutes in the house, her husband came back! I had to be quiet and pretend to do the cleaning, wiping windows, cleaning the kitchen and the floor. Also tidy the bedrooms and wash the bathrooms. All the while, her husband and she were next to me giving me all kinds of ridiculous instructions. When I had finished and was about to leave, her husband asked, "How much?" Even before I could utter a word, she said, "I have already paid the company." On the way home, I kept thinking about the whole saga. The more I thought about it, the more I felt DAMN cheated ... Cleaners are hard to find, beware of the new scam! *Received from Shivaram Shetty Ex-RBI Mumbai G Blogs & Links Honey, can we talk? https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/the-counselling-cove/honey-can-we-talk-36545/ Excerpts : "Husbands are the best people to share secrets with. They’ll never tell anyone because they aren’t even listening!!!” 2) Connecting with our teens https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/the-counselling-cove/connecting-with-our-teens-36224/ Excerpts : “Oh! My parents will never understand me – this is the oft-repeated line that I hear in my sessions with the secondary school students whom I counsel. Ironical it is, that their parents also have the same complaint – “Our son/daughter is so difficult”!!! And of course, there is always a classic parental refrain, “We were never like this when we were growing up!”
