Warrier's Collage January 4, 2022

Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Tuesday January 4, 2022 Vijay Prashad speaking : https://youtu.be/FyqSTxEKtCw Good Morning Collage is changing. Nice Day M G Warrier A Responses 1) K Ramasubramanian A very interesting message from Shri Babusenan covering the Sangram literature and contributions of U Ve Swaminatha iyer popularly known as Tamil Thatha Thank you so much 2) Vathsala Jayaraman Today we had a virtual feast by Shri Babusenan on Tamil Thatha U. Ve. Swaminatha Iyer, another incarnation of Lord Muruga as rightly told by Shri Babusenan. As the Civaka Cintamani was a Jain classic, Swaminatha Iyer went to the homes of learned member of the Jain community Kumbakonam to get some doubts cleared. He also read the Jain epics and collected several manuscript versions and arrived at a correct conclusion. It was due to his efforts that the Cevaka Cintamani was published in 1887. From that time onwards, he began to search for Sangam classics with a view to editing and publishing them. After the Cevaka Cintamani, the Paththuppattu was published. Thus began Swaminatha Iyer's long search for the original texts of ancient literary works during which he regularly worked with C W Damodaram Pillai. It was a search that lasted until his death. As a result, a large number of literary works which were gathering dust as palm-leaf manuscripts in lofts, storerooms, boxes and cupboards saw the light of day. Of them, the Cilappatikaram, Manimekalai and Purananuru were received by Tamil lovers with a lot of enthusiasm. In a span of about five decades, Swaminatha Iyer published about 100 books, including minor poems, lyrics, puranas and bhakti(devotional) works. Swaminatha Iyer's publications threw light on the presence of Tamil music in the earlier centuries and paved the way for serious research on the subject. Very many thanks to Shri Babusenan Sir for kindling our interest Vathsala Jayaraman B Media Response January 3, 2022 Privatisation of public sector banks* This refers to the article "The time to privatise PSU banks is now" (The Hindu Business Line, January 3). The article provides a bird's eye view of the two reports ("The Report on Trend and Progress of Banking in India" and 'The Financial Stability Report") recently released by RBI for the layman. Though the timing was political, the reasons for bank nationalization were sound and India's banking policy continues to be guided by them. As the entire resources managed by the banking system belong to public, irrespective of legalities, government's responsibility to ensure savers' interest cannot be underplayed. It's another matter that RBI has been performing it's regulatory and supervisory responsibilities fairly well irrespective of the ownership of banks. Those who accept the brief for privatisation forget about the not so laudable growth rate and reluctance to finance certain certain crucial sectors crucial for the Indian Economy during the 50 years that followed bank nationalization. Having said that, one is not averse to experimenting with different models for financial intermediation, so long as the central bank continues to play it's role professionally and uninterrupted by political motives.

E Bell Hooks : Mainstream Tribute http://mainstreamweekly.net/article11895.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email To live fully we would need to let go of our fear of dying. That fear can be addressed by the love of living. — bell hooks Even though death is normal and inevitable, it is not easy for me to acknowledge that bell hooks is no more amongst us. I know that professional academicians and scholars are trained to restrain their emotions, and even when a colleague dies, they merely issue formal condolence messages, and write yet another scholarly paper on the academic achievements of their late colleague. Yet, I fail to fit myself into this rationale of cold academics. In fact, on December 15,2021, I was looking at the Guardian, and then I came to know about the death of bell hooks. It shattered me; I felt like crying, touching her books, and sending my prayers to the infinite sky. I have never met her; yet, I am possibly one of those who have experienced her magic—the enchanting power of her ideas, the rhythmic flow of her books, and above all, her conviction, passion and courage to write in a way that, instead of being reduced into a narcissistic play of the intellect, touches the soul of the reader. Seldom does one find a scholar like her in the university circuit who can generate such intense feeling of love, wonder and religiosity.
