Warrier's Collage May 10, 2022 : Focus on RED
Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Tuesday May 10, 2022 You've to calm down https://genius.com/Taylor-swift-you-need-to-calm-down-lyrics https://youtu.be/Dkk9gvTmCXY (When you see RED!🙏-Warrier) (Lyrics : https://genius.com/Taylor-swift-you-need-to-calm-down-lyrics) Good Morning Collage concludes focus on colours with red today. From "Varna" we will move on to "Ashrama" from tomorrow. Let little suspense remain! Nice Day M G Warrier Thought* for the day : Happy Mother's Day Each and every mother, Is as lovely as any other. She's a wondrous marvel of God's creation, Each one deserves an outstanding ovation. I always think of my dear long departed mum, Day after day she used to dance, prance and hum. She was never ever glum, She was in nature sweeter than a plum. I thank the good Lord she never ever felt sore, Always on her pretty face was a heavenly glow. I wish all mothers were like her, Her voice sounded sweeter than a cat's purr. With utmost grace she bore her Earthly Yoke, But it's sad one fine noon she suffered a fatal stroke. *Received from F R Misquith via Group mail A Responses/Messages 1) K Ramasubramanian In Tamil there is a usage like Poovodu Naarum manakkum Same what Shri CVS used in Sanskrit One thing can be realised that irrespective of language the human thinking is common Perhaps evolution defines the human thought behaviour rather uniformly. 2) V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram I am indeed very happy that my short write-up on Sri Sankara's amazing memory has kindled thoughts in two learned members of the Collage. May I venture to ask : Will not the problem posed by Smt Vatsala Jayaraman as to who was there in the battlefield to record the thousand names of Vishnu that Bhishma uttered from memory apply to the long discussion between Krishna and Arjuna, hailed as the Gita? A person, who was blind with old age and who was a cricket fan throughout his life, wished to see a test match. His grandson obliged. Sitting by his side, the boy narrated to him, in detail, what he saw on the TV. We know a similar process took place during the Mahabharatha war. Dhritharaashtra was the king, though blind. He had a right to know what happened in his kingdom. Acknowledging this, the sage Vyaasa gave Sanjaya, his minister, the gift to see everything taking place in Kurukshetra so that he could narrate all he saw to his king, sitting by his side. He did so faithfully and it is only reasonable to presume that scribes would have taken down every word spoken, including the Gita and the Sahasranaama. That seems to be a simpler explanation. Or am I wrong somewhere? (As those who were present at Kurukshetra are not available to vouch, Collage will accept every reasonable elucidation, even if some of them contradict others. Needless to repeat, all views will remain personal 🙏-Warrier) B Media Response* May 9, 2022 Surprise move from RBI This refers to the article "MPC overturns standard assumptions" by Madan Sabnavis (The Hindu Business Line, May 9). There were relationship issues between GOI and RBI during the formative period of MPC. Deft handling of this issue, perhaps, consumed more of the time and other resources of the then RBI Governor to the detriment of one or two core functions of RBI, including currency management. Now, luckily for India, North Block and Mint Road are on the same page and apparently ongoing consultation between GOI and RBI is happening on major policy issues. Whether one calls it surprise or deviation from standard practices, RBI in the present case was only keeping the promise of remaining vigilant and acting quickly in times of need. As regards the suggestion that market may be in for surprises, one can only observe that for Indian markets which have been dancing to the external tunes, adjusting to internal policy moves to balance inflation and economic growth cannot be a tough job.

Because of its dangerous connotation, red has been used in novels suchhttps://theconversation.com/red-state-blue-state-how-colors-took-sides-in-politics-93541 as 'Jane Eyre' for dramatic effect. When Jane is locked in the red room, she faints out of fear of a ghost.

(The color’s connotation was objectionable enough that Cincinnati’s professional baseball team officially changed its nickname from the Reds to the Redlegs between 1953 and 1959.)

He deposited around 50 lacs in MFs and debt funds. 25 lacs he kept in SB itself, as his pension was sufficient for him and his wife. He included his wife's name in his savings acct and taught her online banking procedures and the importance of OTP. He told her not to divulge OTP to anyone. One evg Ganpathy returned from evg walk. 'I forgot to take my mobile...BTW, anything important?' He asked . Wife said 'Someone phoned from the bank' Ganapathy froze. 'Reg OTP?' He asked shockingly. 'You are smart. Of course they wanted me to share the OTP as they wanted to convert our acct from silver status to diamond status with more benefits' ' My God..did you get an OTP? Did you share it?' ' Of course..when it is the bank people calling how can I refuse? ' Ganapathy slumped on the sofa. He immediately took the mobile, logged into bk acct with a heart pounding like a jet motor-set murmuring "You idiot ...25 lacs gone" But he was pleasantly surprised to see not only 25 L was safe but the SB interest was added to it. " Did you share the OTP correctly?" " Yes. But the bank people said it is not correct and asked me to recheck. I stood my ground." " What was the OTP?" " It was, I think, 2404. Since it is a joint account, I 'shared' only half of the OTP : 1202 " *Received from S Venugopal via Group mail G Quotes on RED ♥️ https://www.azquotes.com/quotes/topics/red.html Like : Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration.
