Nice Day M G Warrier A Current Affairs Reserve Bank of India Working Paper on Inflation Forecasting https://m.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_PressReleaseDisplay.aspx?prid=52747 RBI Working Paper No. 06/2021: An Alternative Perspective on Demand and Supply to Forecast Inflation The Reserve Bank of India today placed on its website the above Working Paper under the Reserve Bank of India Working Paper Series. The Paper is authored by Saurabh Sharma and Ipsita Padhi. The paper develops a new method to construct a measure of demand-supply imbalance in the economy using a Bayesian Dynamic Factor Model. The estimated index of demand-supply mismatch is found to have a causal relationship with headline inflation. It is also found to be a competing predictor of headline inflation, as compared to other conventional measures of slack such as the output gap and level of capacity utilisation.

The doubting self has neither this world, nor the next, nor happiness. (4.40) With work renounced by Yoga and doubts rent asunder by knowledge, O, Dhananjaya, actions do not bind him who is poised in the Self. (4.41) Therefore cutting with the sword of knowledge, this doubt about the Self, born of ignorance, residing in thy heart, take refuge in Yoga. Arise, O Bharata! (4.42)” The exhortation to acquire and use the right knowledge here is loud and clear. The message is, the ignorant (one who does not know the Self) has to develop faith in the words and teachings of the Guru. One of a doubting disposition, owing to his rising suspicion about the people and things around him, fails to enjoy this world." D Quote* for the Day : "Don't speak negatively about yourself, even as a joke. Your body doesn't know the difference. Words are energy and cast spells, that's why it's called spelling- Bruce Lee." *Received from V Rangarajan E Mythology : V T Panchapagesan SUNDAY COLLAGE GOD is common to all if we all believe HIM. GOD means HE Generates Optimistic Deliverance... If Prayer is sincere without blind Faith , He will in some form Or the other exhibit His presence which can be seen....felt..... A British Collector named Rose Peter was appointed as Collector of Madurai from 1812 to 1828. Though a Christian by faith, he respected all faiths including Hinduism and also honoured local practices. Collector Peter was the temple administrator and conducted all his duties with sincerity and honesty and respected the religious sentiments of all people. Collector Rous Peter respected and treated people of all faiths equally and this noble trait earned him the popular nickname 'Peter Pandian' Goddess Meenakshi Amman Temple was situated between Collector Peter's residence and office. Everyday he used to go to the office by his horse and while crossing the temple, he got down from his horse, removed the hat and his shoes and crossed the whole path on his foot. Through this small gesture he expressed his reverence to the Goddess! One day there was a heavy downpour in Madurai city and River Vaigai was in spate. Collector was sleeping in his residence and was suddenly disturbed and woken up by the sound of anklets and he left his bed to find out from where the sound had came. He saw a small girl wearing pattuvastrams and precious ornaments and addressing him as 'Peter come this way'. And he came out to follow her and was running behind the little girl to find out who she was! As he came out of the house and was running, he was shocked as he turned to see behind him, his residence (whole bungalow) being washed away by the flood waters of River Vaigai! He turned to follow the girl but she disappeared into thin air! He saw that the girl ran without any shoes and was wearing anklets. He beleived that his devotion for Mother Goddess Meenakshi had saved his life. Later, he wished to give a gift to Lord Meenakshi Amman & consulted the priest of temple and ordered for a pair of golden shoes for Goddess Meenakshi Amman. It is thus that the pair of Paadhukams consisting of : 412 rubies, 72 emeralds, and 80 diamonds were made and donated to the temple His name was sculpted as "Peter" on thr shoes. Till this day the pair of Paadhukams are known as 'Peter Paadhukam' Every year at the time of 'Chaitra Festival', utsava moorthy of Goddess Meenakshi Amman is decorated with the Padukams. This is the incidence that had happened 200 years back in 1818 and for all those who have faith and belief Goddess Meenakshi had been benevolent with her blessings. Take a look at the Padukams F Tit for Tat : V Babusenan Jealousy is a fundamental human emotion. Even a child exhibits it. It is, therefore, natural that those who are engaged in the same profession harbour jealousy and that the field of music is no exception. But the Brahmin non-Brahmin rivalry in Carnatic music, rampant in the earlier part of the last century, was something different. To use a cliche, it was like the dark spots on the moon. There were many unfortunate episodes connected with it. I am venturing to narrate one such episode here. Since it had actually happened,I am masking the main persons involved in it. A luminary vocalist came down to Thiruvananthapuram from Chennai, the citadel of Carnatic music, for a much awaited concert. The head of the percussion section of the AIR was chosen to accompany him on the mridangam.He was an able performer,no doubt ,but the eminence of the singer slightly frightened him. So, on the day of the concert, he went to seek his blessings. The singer was pleased with his humility .He said that there was no reason for fear and blessed him earnestly. In that room was present another staff artist of AIR who was watching this.When the percussionist left,he told the singer that the fellow, who sought his blessings, was actually a Brahmin baiter in the AIR and his humility was a show. The singer said with a smile : "Appadiyaa? Avan katcherikku varattum. Njaan paatthukkalaam ." (Is it so? Let him come for the concert. I will see to it.) The hall was full and the concert began. Departing from his usual practice of starting with a varnam, the singer started with a kriti involving a very complicated tala which confounded the mridangist. The singer said aloud "follow me" many times and the poor man, utterly humiliated, started weeping. A well-known mridangist, who was to accompany the same singer in a concert next day in the Alappuzha town, was watching the scene with dismay. In that concert the next day, which was a grand affair attended by celebrities like the nadaswaram wizard Rajaratnam Pillai, he deliberately played a very intricate tala during the taniyavartanam phase. In a concert, the vocalist is expected to support the percussionists during the taniyavartanam by beating the tala with his hand on his thigh. The singer who was a great vidwan tried to evade this as he could not follow it and the mridangist repeatedly asked him to beat the tala. Seeing the predicament of the singer, Rajaratnam Pillai told his thavil accompanist Meenakshisundaram Pillai : "Meenachi, it seems Swami needs help. Give support to the mridangist."
