When a Tamil girl migrates to USA and marries a foreigner and speaks only English at home what is the mother tongue of her children? Even here in south india there are homes in highly educated class where kids speak only English at home. 2) V T Panchapagesan Rejoinder to F1 Nostalgia I always consider RBI means Realistic Broad outlook Institution. Mumbai where I spent about 35 years In my life can never be forgotten. RBI always repays by giving. It may not be in Money or Goods, more often it repays in Happiness, Health, and Love. I was transferred to Bombay in the year 1981 and posted to Premises Department, Mint Building. I did not get immediately Bank accommodation but was paid Rs.3000 Per month. During this period, I almost Had seen Bombay life which was memorable, duly shaping my life as well as my three sons. Sindhi Society first in Chember, Goregaon East, Govandi, Manmala Tank near Matunga , Transit flat in Andheri East and finally Prabhadevi quarters. Heart of the city. I was also fortunate when the then Governor Sri.Malhotra opened the Malad quarters for staff, through him I got a flat in a high Raised building nearby wherein I stayed there after retirement shaping my three sons in various ways. I learnt during my stay that when we give from our Heart to others, God gives us a refill from His Heart. I always feel that to some, an obstacle is an excuse to quit. To others it is an opportunity to grow stronger through adversity and come one step closer to their goal. The flat was sold in the year 2014 as my sons settled in various places and I am now staying in a Residency. Enjoying my SOLITUDE, WRITING ONCE A WEEK IN WARRIER's Collage on Sundays... V T Panchapagesan* *VTP Celebrated his 90th Birthday on January 2, 2020. 3) V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram English Language May I add the following to Shri Subbaraman's musings on oddities of the English language? It was the year1952. I was doing my intermediate course in Sree Narayana College, Kollam. Sri A Rama Iyer, our Principal ,who was a known literary purist and an ardent disciple of Rt Hon V S Srinivasa Sastri, came to our lecture hall and, without any preface, wrote on the blackboard the words 'India office' and asked some of us to read. We did not find anything peculiar but he said it should be pronounced with an 'r' in between, that is ,as 'Indiaroffice' to facilitate pronunciation. If you ask a British friend why he writes the name of a London suburb 'Reading' and read it as 'Redding' he will only smile. Bernard Shaw did not like this mismatch between writing and pronunciation. He wrote 'Ghoti' and asked us to read 'f-i-s-h.' He had a valid argument: 1 The 'gh' in 'cough 'and 'enough' we pronounce as ' f ' 2 The letter 'o' in ' women ' we pronounce as 'i' 3 The ' ti ' in 'station' and 'motion' we pronounce as 'sh' The first ambassadors of the English language in the colonies were missionaries. The British missionaries spoke the language differently depending upon where they came from-England, Scotland or Ireland. The Irish, it is said, stressed the 'r' in 'girl,' 'iron' and 'world' The English spoken by those who belonged to areas where they came to preach was like theirs. I recollect that many of my Bengaluru friends pronounced 'iron 'as 'i-r-o-n' In fact, these things add colour to a language. (English is a confusing language : Yesterday a WhatsApp forward said : "In a suburban hotel a customer ordered "4 Tea Two Coffee" and was served 42 Coffee and was billed accordingly" A pause or absence of it can create hell. The other day a painter wrote on a name board "The rapist" and didn't even know what went wrong. You guessed it right : The same painter who writes "Well come") B Collage Profile : Dr P K Warrier* https://www.onmanorama.com/news/kerala/2021/06/07/pk-warrier-100-revolutionary-to-ayurveda-life-story.html From revolutionary to Ayurveda proponent: Life story of Dr P K Warrier, who lived a 100 years *Panniyampilly Krishnankuty Warrier was an Indian Ayurveda practitioner.

E SANYASAM Introductory https://www.thehindu.com/features/friday-review/religion/religious-discourse-sanyasa-is-an-attitude/article8524569.ece Indian Tradition & Sanyasa https://www.hinduwebsite.com/sanyasmeans.asp People who follow the path of sanyasa or renunciation are expected to lead very austere and ascetic lives, setting aside all desires and comforts and acknowledging no relationship whatsoever, including the relationship with God and oneself. One has to forgo all acts of self-preservation and self-advancement and the need to further one's ego and identity. F Leisure Story with a moral HELL OF A STORY* A Teacher asked her young students to get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day, the kids came back and one by one, began to tell their stories. There were all the regular type of stuff. But then the teacher realized that only Janie was left. ''Janie, do you have a story to share ?'' ''Yes madam... My daddy told me a story about my Mom '' ''OK, let's hear'' said the teacher. ''My Mom was a Marine pilot in Operation Desert Storm in Iraq and her plane got hit''. ''She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol and a survival knife''. ''She drank the whiskey on the way down so the bottle wouldn't break and then her parachute landed her right in the middle of 20 Iraqi troops.'' ''She shot 15 of them with the pistol, until she ran out of bullets, killed four more with the knife, till the blade broke and then she killed the last Iraqi with her bare hands.'' Pin drop silence in the class !! ''Good Heavens'' said the horrified teacher ''What did your Daddy tell you was the moral to this horrible story ?'' ''Stay away from Mummy when she's drunk...'' Did you know the post script of the story? From next day on, Janie, who was regularly late to come to school as she was being brought to school by her mother, who always overslept(for obvious reasons), and whom the teacher had many times admonished to bring the child in time to school, came spic on time to school, because the teacher arranged an auto to bring her to school at her own cost! The teacher however advised the auto driver to wait for the girl beyond gunshot distance!! *Shared by Dr T V Surendran Mananthavady G Motivational Quotes https://www.inc.com/peter-economy/17-super-positive-quotes-that-will-inspire-you-to-be-exceptional.html Like : "Be patient with yourself.
