Warrier's Collage March 21, 2022
Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Monday, March 21, 2022 Manju Warrier @ Guruvayoor https://youtu.be/VqUtyE0q3uw Good Morning Nice Day M G Warrier A Messages 1) S Nallasivan How, I wonder Dr.T V Surendran, a Physician, a Peadiatrician at that carry the knack of posting always the best, tongue in cheek genre Jokes. Possibly he can be matched in this respect with Shri A P Ramadurai. Have you heard of a joke within a joke? "The Lawyers, you know, will not and do not lie !" Don't you see Yudhisthira in him, who too had to speak a lie, nay one which is not truth Yes, Yudhisthira was he not referring to Ashwatthama, but only the elephant that was dead Of course as a way of punishment for speaking something, against his nature, had to carry a sick dog when he had the privilege walking to Heaven with his Physical body. I am attempting again to glorify the noble profession of Lawyers. It was funeral of a rich man and there assembled his three trusted friends to moan, a Priest, a Physician and of course a Lawyer They were discussing about how each one of them sinned against the dead friend and decided to make suitable amends. The Priest conveyed how, as a man of God he misled him deliberately to suit his personal needs and has dropped $.1000 as a penance in the Casket; The Physician then confessed how he was not true to his profession and was the reason for the early death and dropped $ 5000 in the Casket; The Lawyer was at his modest best and conveyed his exploitation of the richness of the man lying in the Casket and that even in the Last Will he made it to suit him, benefit him a lot and offered to his other two friends surprise that he would drop $ 10000 in the Casket. But to the shock of his friends collected the $ 6000 from the Casket put it to his pocket and took a Banker's Cheque drawn on his own Bank for $10000 and very religiously dropped in the Casket. One should now come to know how noble is the Profession of Lawyers. Only these sterling qualities that made up my mind to study Law. S.Nallasivan 2) Dr Prabha Ramadurai I am sorry that I am a nonparticipating or rarely participating member in our Collage which is loaded with beautiful articles and wonderful information. In today’s collage “Are Shivalingas Radioactive attracted” by Shri V.T.Panhapakesan drew my attention. The Pancha bhoota tatva and scientific explanation about Shivalingas are beautifully narrated. Incidentally yesterday I was explaining to my students the connection of certain Bach flower remedies with Perumal, Thaayaar, Anjaneyar and Shiva lingam. Though we know many things, they draw attraction and interest only when lucidly explained by some other person. I thank Shri Panchapakesan for the article. My sincere thanks to you for transmitting efforts of such knowledgeable persons through your untiring efforts. “Ashwathama Hatah Kunjarah” shared by Dr. T.V.Surendran was also enjoyable. I was wondering that one line of such an old Epic like Mahabharatha is still helping the common man to get his work done. Each and every write up is really very interesting. As I have already mentioned, my age and eyesight don’t permit me to go through every write-up especially lengthy ones. This January I completed 80. In fact my daughter and son in law had come down from Malaysia to be with me and celebrate but I quietly celebrated all alone in isolation due to Corona. I want to stop my teaching activity (Bach Flower remedy therapy ) and counseling but unable to say no when approached by anyone with interest and problems. Of course my selfish motive is also there. Because these incomes help many under- privileged students to pay their school/college fees. A portion also goes to a cancer hospice and gives me Atma Thripthi. Prabha Ramadurai 3) Vivek Amin Nagpur Are Shivlingas Radioactive by V T Panchapagesan is very informative and gives us to think whether western scientists took blessings from our ancient discoveries and obtainedPatent(s). Even a Bell at the entrance of a Temple has significance of giving positive vibes who bows to God for true praying. Manyatimes after visiting a Temple I wonder as to how I came out without asking anything from God. The answer is simple. A visit to Temple makes us to forget the luggage of problems which we always carry. However, when asked a retiree as to what he asks from the God when he visits a Temple. He said following. "Two things. Firstly for good health for him and family and followed by a wish that he should continue to get his Pension for more number of years than he did years of service. So be comfortable and make others happy who need genuinely need help. B My Story So Far Chapter 5 : M G Warrier https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/my-story-so-far-chapter-5-trade-union-days-part-i-41930/ Excerpts : Joining AG’s Office Thiruvananthapuram in September 1964 was a turning point for me. If the 100 plus employees in RPFC’s Office were like members of a large joint family under one roof, the 1000 plus staff in my new office was an assortment divided by cadres, political views and diverse interests. PF Office was just nine or ten years old in 1963 and therefore the average age of staff there was less than thirty. In contrast, AG’s Office had staff in all age groups. While there was no union or association in PF Office, there was a militant trade union in AG’s Office. Destiny took me closer to the Association leadership in AG’s Office. I enjoyed being in the front line of leadership. I was an elected member of the Managing Committee of the Association when I was leaving that office to join RBI in 1968. C Book Review : Conquering The Chaos https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/blogs/just-like-that/conquering-the-chaos/ Conquering the Chaos is a great read for leaders who operate in the Indian market. It is a road map that can be used to navigate this territory. But then anyone who has used maps in India knows that they get outdated quickly since rain, processions, road repair etc can make the main route unusable. The locals remain unperturbed and simply find another option. So Ravi will have to release the new edition of this book soon. D Leisure Received from Dr T V Surendran Mananthavady 1) You are going to love this.... A tourist in Vienna is going through a graveyard and all of a sudden he hears some music... No one is around, so he starts searching for the source... He finally locates the origin and finds it is coming from a grave with a headstone that reads: "Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770- 1827"... Then he realizes that the music is Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and it is being played backwards... Puzzled, he leaves the graveyard and persuades a friend to return with him... By the time they arrive back at the grave, the music has changed... This time it is the Seventh Symphony, but like the previous piece, it is being played backwards... Curious, the men agree to consult a music scholar... When they return with the expert, the Fifth Symphony is playing, again backwards... The expert notices that the symphonies are being played in the reverse order in which they were composed, the 9th, then the 7th, then the 5th... By the next day the word has spread, and a crowd has gathered around the grave... They are all listening to the Second Symphony being played backward. Just then the graveyard's caretaker ambles up to the group... Someone in the group asks him if he has an explanation for the music... "I would have thought it was obvious," the caretaker says... "He's decomposing."... 🎶🎵... 2) A GENERATION THAT WILL NEVER COME BACK 🔅A generation that walked to school and then walked back 🔅A generation that spent all their free time in the streets with their friends 🔅A generation that played board games and cards on rainy days 🔅A generation whose TV went off at midnight after playing the National Anthem 🔅A generation that was fond of listening to BBC commentary of cricket matches in transistor even during early mornings 🔅A generation that laughed under the covers in bed so parents didn't know we were still awake 🔅A generation that always enjoyed sitting on window seats of trains and counting the poles 🔅A generation that took pride in creating colourful greeting cards in the 15 Paise post cards 🔅A generation that would wait for the morning newspaper to have the first hand glance of sports page 🔅A generation that never missed any school function 🔅A generation that will never return no matter how hard we try ✊🏼I am proud I belong to that generation! I loved Growing up when I did and it was the best of times! 2) A P Ramadurai adds : A man walks out to the street and stops a taxi just going by. He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie says, "Perfect timing. You're just like Frank." Passenger: "Who?" Cabbie: "Frank Feldman... he was a cabbie who did everything right all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, he was always in the right place at the right time. Things happened like that to Frank Feldman every single time." Passenger: "There are always a few clouds over everybody." Cabbie: "Not Frank Feldman. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand-Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone, and danced like a Broadway star. And you should have heard him play the piano! He was an amazing guy, perfect in every way." Passenger: "Sounds like he was something really special." Cabbie: "There's more. He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody's birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order, and which fork to eat them with. And he could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Frank Feldman, he could do everything right, he never made a mistake, he was perfect!!" Passenger: "Wow, some guy then." Cabbie: "He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Frank, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He was the best lover in bed, and could take his wife to the top of the mountain. He would never answer her back, even if she was in the wrong. His clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Frank Feldman." Passenger: "This Frank Feldman was an amazing fellow. How did you meet him?" Cabbie: "Well... I never actually met Frank. He died, and I have the pleasure of being married to his widow."
