Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Tuesday, March 29, 2022 1) Edassery Anusmaranam https://youtu.be/9X4Mqw4_mjg (Link Courtesy : Edassery Madhavan, Ex-RBI, Thrissur. ) 2) Chenda Melam Dance https://youtu.be/ftfZmGBrLzc (Link Courtesy : George Zachariah Mumbai) Good Morning Many readers have conveyed their Best Wishes for the formal release of my book "Restoring Trust in Governance" scheduled for April 2, 2022. Select messages have been included today. Thanks to all 🙏-Warrier Nice Day M G Warrier A Responses 1) P P Ramachandran Mumbai Delighted to learn of the release of your latest book "Restoring Trust in Governance", Hearty congratulations. PPR (Many Thanks 🙏-Warrier) 2) Sitendra Kumar Glad to know you are launching the book on April 2, 2022. The former Governor Dr Subbarao has expressed his best wishes. I purchased Restoring Trust in Governance on 27 Nov 2020. Liked the book and had sent my comments as well* Wish the book success on its formal release. Regards, Sitendra Kumar (*Amazon has published your review of the book. That was the first review. Then publications like The Global Analyst, Business Manager and the Alumni Magazine of IIM Ahmedabad also published reviews. My earlier books were not formally released. This release, which was planned, got delayed due to the C-Situation. 🙏-Warrier) 3) V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram The priest who prays for you and me in hard sanskrit will say that the gods to whom he is interceding on our behalf know the language very well. The same is, more or less, the case with books and statements on economic and financial matters(including the periodical statements of the Monetary Policy Committee) These are meant for those who know and not for laymen like you and me (who, in a sense, have also a right to know) . This is one school of thought. There is another one that gives utmost importance to readability-of course, without sacrificing or distorting facts. Dr Salim Ali, the arnithologist nonpareil, belonged to this group and he proved it in his writings. Shri Warrier's book that is going to be formally released on the 2nd April, is lying on my lap. I have promised to myself like Macbeth, ' blow wind, come wrack' I will read this beautifully brought out book, hoping to see the author in Dr. Salim Ali's camp. This is Shri Warrier's third book. According to the blurb, the book 'discusses recent government and RBI initiatives to take forward financial sector reforms with economic growth and infusing professionalism in governance and the institutional system in the financial sector as ultimate objectives.' The name of the book suggests that its author is among those who believe that the trust factor has taken a long holiday from the present governance. To a layman it may appear that one of the reasons for this is absence of human face in reforms. Was it not Gandhiji who said that, in all our planning, the yardstick of success is how far it benefits the poor man? But who bothers? After all, Gandhiji was not an economist. Let us wish the book-release function all success and hope that the book will accomplish the purpose for which considerable effort seems to have gone into its making. (Sir, when we met on March 27, 2022, Somarajan and I enjoyed the special tea prepared by Mrs Babusenan and we remembered some old friends who were/are part of the RBI family. Such meetings give us opportunity to refresh nostalgic memories of working together and interacting. Wishing you Ayurarogyasaukhyam 🙏-Warrier) 4) Vathsala Jayaraman Chennai Hearty congratulations for the formal release of the book. A notable achievement!! (Many Thanks 🙏-Warrier) B Current Affairs 1) RBI dedicates Varnika Ink manufacturing unit to the nation https://m.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_PressReleaseDisplay.aspx?prid=53476 RBI Governor dedicates Varnika Ink Manufacturing Unit of BRBNMPL to the Nation Shri Shaktikanta Das, Governor, Reserve Bank of India (RBI), dedicated Varnika, the Ink Manufacturing Unit of Bharatiya Reserve Bank Note Mudran Private Limited (BRBNMPL), a wholly owned subsidiary of RBI to the nation today (March 28, 2022) in Mysuru. In his address, Governor recognised the substantial progress made towards achieving self-reliance in banknote production ecosystem in India. He emphasised the importance of continuously building capacity (in terms people, process, and technology), research and development and innovation to achieve 100 per cent self-sufficiency in banknote manufacturing in the near future. 2) Media Response March 28, 2022 April 22 Monetary Policy This refers to the article "Why the April monetary policy of RBI is crucial"(The Hindu Business Line, March 28). The analysis gives sufficient reasons for a deviation from the relatively stagnant stand on rates with focus on liquidity. The only silver lining for RBI is that the central government is willing to continue with a supportive fiscal policy. At least since the time the present governor took over, we don't overhear preemptive suggestions to Mint Road from Delhi. Ongoing consultations do not draw attention from the media. Of course, the efficient functioning of the Monetary Policy Committee deserves praise for this development. Perhaps, the days when RBI could follow Federal Reserve in regard to monetary policy measures are over. As RBI's role is much larger, aligning the needs of its own assigned function of inflation management and several traditional functions which have stayed with RBI, is becoming tougher and tougher. So long as things remain under control, no one notices the efforts that goes into the formulation and implementation of monetary and fiscal policies. The expectation that 2022 will give some relief has been belied by the Putin adventure. M G Warrier Thiruvananthapuram C Flower Therapy : Dr Prabha Ramadurai Cheñnai Dr. Edward Bach discovered some non toxic wild flowers, plants etc. which, he found out to have emotion, expression etc. just like human beings, animals and other creatures. These flowers are not for pooja or spiritual purpose. Trace quantities of those nontoxic wild flowers’ essences are used as remedies for treating psychosomatic as well as day today problems. When I teach this system, sometimes I relate particular remedies with some spiritual aspects so that the students fully understand the positive and negative aspects of these remedies. Some deities are linked by me to flower remedies while explaining about them because Nature is only God’s creation. For example: Gorse : This remedy is about faith, trust. The other name of faith is God. Gorse type personalities never betray others. So I link Gorse remedy with God so that my students understand the gorse type personality. Sweet chestnut: Due to extreme anguish, one feels totally shattered. When endurance level reaches the limit due to pain or suffering, we cry out “Amma pl. help me”. Sweet chestnut is to get grace from Thaayaar. We have seen God and Goddesses in pictures, so even if God appears in cognito, we won’t believe- being immersed in our problems -saying someone is cheating us. A ray of hope in the form of help from any known or unknown origin will help us to come out of the crisis. It is believed that each and every second God sends someone to help us because He cannot come personally. “Deivam manushya roopena”. So Sweet chestnut and Gorse go together as a combination for treating the sufferer, or to get solutions to problems beyond their control. (I have experienced the power of this remedy when my husband was once hospitalised and at one point I had totally lost hope of his discharge and bringing him home alive.) Centaury: These types of personalities are always ready to serve others. Sometimes they are also taken for granted by others. So being at others’ disposal all the time, they lose self- identity and strength also. Centaury type personalities never expect anything, and won't count the day or time. It is said “Anjaneyarukku thannudaiya balam theriyadu”. (Hanuman never realised his strength. He never asked anything from anybody). Also he didn't have any wish. Nobody knows Hanuman’s power except Sun. This is the positive aspect of this remedy. In day today life Centaury is used to bring out the true identity of persons who are always serving others or used as doormats whether they wish or not. Walnut : This remedy is linked with our brain. It deeply works on Pituitary and Pineal glands. Lingam is linked with Soul ,so Lingam is physical object of Soul energy. Walnut also works deeply as a link breaker. Such as adaptation to a new place or situation. One of my students is keenly studying these things. Whenever we both are free we discuss on these and similar matters. This is a very deep subject to deal with. So I don’t want to go further into details so as to avoid needless controversies. Best wishes, Prabha Ramadurai A report : What is Bach flower therapy all about? : https://www.thehindu.com/life-and-style/article59863052.ece D Spirituality/Faith https://twitter.com/CharanSingh60/status/1508125669926256642?s=20&t=9a93-C7DGqJaBB3Zbvu5lA Unity in Diversity - 204 बेड़ा बंधि न सकिओ बंधन की वेला भरि सरवरु जब ऊछलै तब तरणु दुहेला Did not build the boat/ship in time? When ocean is overflowing/rough (of temptations), how will you cross over? Farid, raag Soohi, 794, SGGS E Change the caps* Some years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San Francisco. Mensa, is an international organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher. Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local cafe. When they sat down, one of them discovered that their salt shaker contained pepper, and their pepper shaker was full of salt. How could they swap the contents of the two bottles without spilling any, and using only the implements at hand? Clearly -- this was a job for Mensa minds. The group debated the problem and presented ideas and finally, came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer. They then called the waitress over, ready to dazzle her with their solution. "Ma'am," they said, "we couldn't help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker contains pepper..." But before they could finish, the waitress interrupted & said... "Oh -- sorry about that." She leaned over the table, unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them. There was dead silence at the Mensa table. *For most of the problems in our lives there are simple solutions, but it is our “Brilliant” minds that complicate every simple solution. ...Change the Caps and enjoy life !!* *Take a re-look at life, you will find non issues mostly!* *Received from K P V Karunakaran Mumbai F Leisure 1) Class Joke : Received from A P Ramadurai Cheñnai The Blonde Model and the Co-Pilot A beautiful young model boarded a plane to New York with a ticket for the economy section. She looked at the seats in economy, and then looked into the forward cabin at the luxurious first-class seats. Seeing that the first-class seats appeared to be much larger and more comfortable, she moved forward to the last empty seat in first-class. The flight attendant checked her ticket and told the woman that her seat was in economy. The blonde replied, "I'm a famous model, and I’ve never had this problem before. I'm going to sit here all the way, until we get to New York." Flustered, the flight attendant went to the cockpit and informed the captain of the problem. The captain went back and told the woman that her assigned seat was in economy. Again, the blonde replied: "I'm a famous model. I'm sitting here all the way to New York.” The captain didn’t want to cause a commotion, and so returned to the cockpit to discuss the blonde problem with the co-pilot. The co-pilot said that he used to date a model like her, and that he could take care of the problem. He then went back and briefly whispered something in the blonde's ear. She immediately got up and said, "Okay, thank you". She then hugged the co-pilot, and rushed back to her seat in the economy section. The pilot and flight attendant, who were watching with rapt attention, asked the Co-pilot what he had said to the woman. He replied, "I just told her that the first-class seats aren't going to New York." 2) Up to U* One word in the English language that could be a noun, verb, adj, adv, prep is "UP". Read until the end... you'll have a good laugh !!! This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word. That word is, 'UP'. It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v]. It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP', and why are the officers UP for election, if there is a tie, it is a toss UP, and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report ? We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car. At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special. And this UP can be confusing. A drain must be opened UP because it is blocked UP !!! We open UP a store in the morning, but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP !!! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions !!! If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with, UP to, a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it soaks UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now...... my time is UP! So, did this whole thing, crack you UP? Send this on to someone you look UP in your group .... or not... it's UP to you. *Received from T J Kurup Thiruvananthapuram G Story Time with R Jayakumar A SHORT & MUST READ STORY There was an aged artist who lived in a small village. The man used to design beautiful artistic works to be sold at attractive prices. He earned lot of money with his artwork. One day, a man from the village who was poor challenged the old artist saying : "You earn a lot of money from your handiwork, but you don't help the poor people in the village? Can't you see that the butcher is not as rich as you are, but he still shares free meat to the poor people in the village? Also, look at the village baker. He is also a poorman with a large family. Yet he provides free loaves of bread to the poor in the village." The artist neither responded nor got angry for the accusation. He only smiled. The poor man was confused about this reaction of the artist. So he left him and went on spreading rumours in the village that the old artist was so rich, but a very selfish person who only accumulated wealth and never was willing to help the poor. The villagers started hating the old artist and stopped keeping any touch with him. The old artist became sick and could not do anything for himself but nobody among the villagers cared to visit him or help him, so he died a lonely death. The days passed by and the villagers observed that the butcher stopped free distribution of meat and the baker could not give the poor free loaves of bread any more. When the butcher and the baker were asked why they stopped helping the poor in the village, their answers stunned everyone. They said that the old artist used to give them money every month for the free meat and bread to be given to the poor in the village. Now that he was dead, there was nobody to pay for the free food anymore!! This is a truth we face in our daily life. Many people may have wrong impressions and different opinions about you. Do not allow any of them to influence or destroy what you are. Do not pass judgment on anyone based on his outward appearance or what people say about him. There are things about his personal life which you do not know. If you had the privilege to know about them, your judgment would surely be different. A man might have died in a drinking/dance bar. Another person might have died in the Church. If we are to judge them, we would say that the first man died a sinner and the second man died a righteous man. But the first man entered the bar to preach about sin and the harm of drinking and the second man entered the Church to steal from the donation box. We are no one to decide who goes to heaven or who goes to hell. Human physical appearance is just a deception. Therefore forgive people and ignore their shortcomings. Be good to everybody. And don't cut off your relationship with a person just because he does not please you. Live in unity and harmony with all. For the LORD who created all souls, knows what each soul conceals. Fear God alone...Pray for one another..🙏
