Warrier's Collage March 1, 2022

Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Tuesday, March 1, 2022 1) Fire and Ice* : Robert Frost (Link Courtesy : Edassery Madhavan Thrissur) *Lyrics : 2) Shivathandavam Good Morning Today is Mahashivratri While sharing yesterday's Collage via WhatsApp I attached the photo of Vilwa tree received from Vishnu Kelkar. I was happy to see the attachment appearing at the top and "Collage" following. Within an hour I received 20 WhatsApp messages about the photo, as only the photo got transmitted to my contacts. Result of my poor level of technology awareness. I never knew my morning messages had this much readership. I used "share application" now and resent the full message to many of my readers. I enjoy learning by committing blunders, which I am used to 🙏-Warrier Nice Day M G Warrier M A Message

That is why there are many admirers for your autobiography (now in instalments) even before it is publ

Gave him convincing reasons. This will, hopefully, get regularised soon. Nice Day M G Warrier A Responses 1) Jyothilakshmi Anil Kumar Ref : My Story So Far Chapter 3* Your story is getting more interesting Uncle. Sorry for the delay in responding, I was indisposed for last two days. Staying with a bunch of inmates for quite some time must have been a "Big Boss" type of experience for you for sure. I believe, destiny already plans the best and the most suitable life for us. You were meant to be a good banker, than a defence personnel. The 'Bank's gain, but Defences' loss. Destiny&#

Media Response : Taxing the poor

Media Response February 21, 2022 Taxing the poor This refers to the article "Some taxing issues in India's fiscal policy" (The Hindu Business Line, February 21). The observation "It is a myth that the poor don't pay taxes as they pay a significant amount through indirect taxes" is very true. Historically, whatever be the nature and form of government, world over, decisions on taxation policy has been the prerogative of the rich and the mighty. By now wealth adequate for few generations of the entire world population to live comfortably for at least two generations has been accumulated and is idling unmapped and unaccounted. High time we had a serious look at profit-making and taxation policies. Mainstreaming unaccounted domestic resources, taxing agricultural income, shifting focus of taxation from income to expenditure and investment/savings are ideas whose time has come. As regards transparency in resources mobilisation and reducing living expens

Ayurarogyasaukhyam to all readers. 🙏 Nice Day M G Warrier A Responses 1) C V Subbaraman Apropos Vathsala Jayaraman's write up on principles, the best principle is to either have no set principles or to have "adaptability" as a principle which is the dignified term to have no principles. We are all, in a way, adopting the trait of "adaptability". Perhaps this is a positive quality as mentioned in our Self Appraisal form? Subbaraman 2) Vishnu Kelkar Ref : B3-(a) Well said. Negati

Pay Disparities

February 18, 2022 Pay disparities This refers to the article "Time to end exorbitant executive pay" by N Madhavan (The Hindu Business Line, Matters of fact, February 18). The analysis is focused and relevant across the sectors irrespective of technicalities of "ownership". Let's be aware that whether through equity contribution, taxes, by investment in different savings instruments including insurance and retirement funds or bank deposits, public share in resources tapped by private and public sector companies and organisations is substantially high in India. Let's recall during the post-independence and pre-constitution days when President's salary was fixed at Rs10,000 per month, the ratio of minimum and maximum remuneration in India was roughly 1 : 10. Executive salaries in private sector too didn't go to much higher levels than the President's salary. The issue is more deep rooted than the glaring aberrations quoted. It's high time
