Warrier's Collage April 12, 2022
Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On TUESDAY April 12, 2022 Good Morning I think today's is the optimum size for Collage! What do you say? Nice Day M G Warrier A Messages/Responses 1) P P Ramachandran Mumbai My dear MGW, Thank you for publishing in today's (April 11, 2022) Collage my review and interesting correspondence. Actually my review for Sunday was of a book on Laxmikant and Pyarelal. Amazon gave the packet (Restoring Trust in Governance) early enough to concentrate on your book. LP will appear on Sunday 17th. All the best for your book. I will send a clutch of responses. PPR (The joint efforts will keep the Collage going. Thanks 🙏-Warrier) 2) C V Subbaraman There is no doubt that Shri Warrier is a person whose thirst for knowledge is abundant and whose thinking ability and search for solutions are unending. He collects and collates the data to drive home his suggestions. The review fully brings out the various aspects handled in the book by the author and is thus a key to the reader of the review to obtain the book and make further study in depth of the book. I think his suggestions should receive appreciation and acceptance at the highest echelons in Government and RBI, but there will always be constraints owing to political or bureaucratic pressures. I wish Shri Warrier's book a good sale and wider readership. Best wishes to him. For reviewer, it is one more feather in his cap. Subbaraman (Thank you Sir. I had distributed over 100 copies of my book "India's Decade of Reforms" to VIPs, friends and media persons. This book, I have given less than 10 copies free. Now I've only 2 copies with me. Even at the Book Release function though all the copies were picked up by friends, they willingly gave Rs300 or more per copy, to the Relief Fund maintained by the Retirees Association, as suggested by me 🙏-Warrier) 3) Shaji Kurup Excellent Review by Shri PPR and also honoured by trailing valuable comments by Dr D Subbarao Ex Gov as well. Regards and respects 🙏🏻 4) R Krishnamurthy Ex-CGM NABARD Bangalore Shaji sent me just now PPR's review of your book on Restoring Trust in Governace. I found it providing an amazing glimpse of the contents of your work. Made me feel that I should have read the book first. If a priced version is available I will try to get my hands on it. I too had an opportunity to work on Governace issues in financial cooperatives and as former RPCD man you know the sorry state of affairs we have continued to, not just tolerate, but have even conveniently bypassed, blaming it all on the dual control. I wrote a manual on good Governace and followed it up by a series of training courses for senior government officials and top executives of banks at State and district level banks. A Trainers' Training Manual was also published as a sequel by me. Sadly nothing has changed. Recently GoI has made some amendments in banking laws. How far we will take them forward remains to be seen. UCBs ,needless to add, are in a complete mess. The kind of leverages we have allowed the banking system to enjoy, without putting in place and enforcing adherence to, total fiduciary responsibility on their part is a sad commentary on the regulatory arrangement. In commercial banks too the most immediate reforms need to be on a complete review of Governace Structures and Practices. The way Boards are constituted and are functioning needs immediate attention. Fortunately Indian banking is still doing only primitive functions without getting too seriously involved in complex functions like investment banking, futures, derivatives etc is a small consolation. A holistic view of the entire payments system, with the emergence of new players like Paytm, Gpay, Mobile banking etc, is another challenging development. We have allowed a lot of new players to operate in the financial architecture without integrating them under the regulatory ambit. Sorry if I rambled on without your consent. Would love to read your works soonest. Just finished reading Dr Rajan's "I do what I do". Very interesting summary of all that he experienced out in RBI and government. By the way, please pass on my regards to PPR. More than 35 years since we met. He may not remember me. 5) S K Gupta Panchkula Congrats for having received accolades from Dr Subbarao, our former Governor, in respect of your well meaning and thought provoking book : "Restoring Trust in Governance". 6) K Ramasubramanian Mumbai Dear Shri Babusenan The Bhakti form of literature forms very important and major contributor to the development of any language . The Indian spirit of Athmika manifests in prayer literature . They are true expression of felt feelings of the author elevating to a high elevated level of mind in the quest of reaching God There are lot of values in Thiruppavai Thiruvachakam etc 7) S Subramanian Coimbatore Waav..

Kudos to Warrier for his Collage has hit a clean hundred in 2022, a century early in the first half! With loads of Love and Best Wishes to both W and PPR from the one and only German Subbu S Subramanian 8) V R Chittanandam Dear Shri Warrier, My hearty congratulations to you on your hitting a century of Collages. It is not an easy task to shape one Collage and you have accomplished the onerous task of compiling one hundred collages. I admire your energy and perseverance in hitting this milestone. Regards, Chittanandam (Thanks. "German Subbu" has hit on the Century! Actually it's 100th day in 2022.

I am very often reminded of autumn, when leaves fall to the ground to form a multicoloured carpet.There is a pain combined with pleasure. Are we having a moral science class during autumn? The leaves falling like our years, the flowers fading like our hours, the clouds fleeting like our illusions, the light diminishing like our intelligence, all bear secret relations to our destinies. There is a lesson on 'sacrifice'.Yes, here the light gets defeated by darkness; Ancient scriptures say that those who long for light must face the inner darkness and overpower the same. We can't but be reminded of Bhaja Govindam of Shankaracharya PUNARAPI JANANAM PUNARAPI MARANAM PUNARAPI JANANEE- JATARE SAYANAM IHA SAMSAARE BAHU-DUSTAARE KRIPAYAA(A)PAARE PAAHI MURARE Born again, dying again, sleeping once Born again, dying again, sleeping once again in a mother's belly - here in this endless ocean of samsara (the world), which is difficult to cross, protect me by your grace, O Murari. PUNARAPI RAJANI PUNARAPI DIVASAH PUNARAPI PAKSAH PUNARAPI MASAH PUNARAPYAYANAM PUNIRAPI VARSAM TADAPI NA MUNCATYASAMARSAM. Another night, another day, another two weeks, another month, another half a year, and another year (all pass by), yet the passion of desire does not leave you. We need not know either Sanskrit or BhajaGovindam. Nature stands before you and kindles the awakening facts. Mother Nature seems to convey how easy, how healthy, and how beautiful letting go can be that is leaving our own desires. Does it symbolize the end of misery and beginning of hope? Does it convey that the thing which is dead will come back alive again? I read about an imaginary conversation with a falling leaf. "Dear leaf, ,are you frightened because all the leaves are falling and you are also going to fall? The leaf replied “No. During the whole spring and summer I was completely alive. I worked sincerely to store food in me and give total nourishment to the tree. Don't think that by discolouration my purpose of life is limited." " I shall go back to the soil and continue to nourish the tree. As I leave this branch and float to the ground, I will wave to the tree and say Good bye to come back again." The wind blew,the leaf fell down.It floated dancing and dancing and saw above. A green leaf was already there on the branch. The leaf was so happy to see its own form again on the tree. We bow before this little leaf. What a great philosophy the tiny leaf has conveyed! We hear M. S. singing " punarapi Jananam punarapi Maranam: Vathsala Jayaraman D Media : Mainstream Weekly http://mainstreamweekly.net/article12217.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email In fact the biggest benefit of my life as an independent writer has been the opportunity I had to meet so many great and inspiring persons, some of whom in fact became family friends. I met several of them in course of my travels to very remote areas. They helped me to form a world view which is now invaluable guidance for me in my life and work. I see progress of humanity as an unending quest for justice, equality, peace, protection of environment and all species and mutually cooperative social relationships. In this quest unfortunately there have been more failures than successes in human history. This failure has led to great distress and many crises, culminating in a survival crisis in recent decades which is now the most important issue of our deeply troubled world. A future without wars and arms race committed to resolving serious environmental problems is urgently needed, calling for governance reform as well.

People used to even park their cars under the board. A few days later a Keralite passed by that place. He saw the whole scene and understood. He made two changes to the board. He erased words "No" and "Penalty" from the board. Now the board read "PARKING ZONE Rs 250/-" Now people have stopped parking there.

A humanist, he was a part of the transition between transcendentalism and realism, incorporating both views in his works. Whitman is among the most influential poets in the American canon, often called the father of free verse.
