Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Monday May 23, 2022 1) Vishnu Sahasranamam https://youtu.be/ATflA6WOy0I (M S Subbulakshmi) 2) Music from Nature https://youtu.be/Nd7e4SNjGBM 3) Bird Song Opera* https://youtu.be/IMXD4h5w8D8 *Shared by K Balasubramanian, Coimbatore with this note : "The participation of 60 species of birds in this digital performance is impressive! At the end, at the height of the melody (Papageno-Papagena / the Magic Flute) the noise of the birds synchronized with Mozart's opera is spectacular! And to think that a job of this magnitude, published on YouTube in September 2020, which took months of an entire team and edited by the composer, producer and writer Volker Pannes ended in just 03 wonderful minutes. It is worth." Good Morning 🙏 Nice Day M G Warrier A V Babusenan's Column : About bad food Legend says that Vararuchi, the famous astronomer-cum-grammarian, who was one of the nine gems in Vikramaditya's court, visited Kerala with his wife and during the period he was here, he fathered twelve children. Applying the policy 'less luggage, more comfort', the couple left each child where it was born and finally returned to the North. One of the twelve grew up in a marginalized community, but was regarded by all as a Siddha. In the folklore, he is known as Paakkanaar. Here is a story told by him which has a double moral. In a Brahmin household, at supper time, they found a millipede in the cooked rice. At the suggestion of the head of the family, that spoiled rice was given to a beggar. That night, the father Brahmin saw Yamadharma in his dream telling him this : "You did a bad thing. You shouldn't have given that bad food to another who had no inkling of what happened. We are keeping a plate of one hundred millipedes for you to eat on your coming here. After that only we will decide where you must go." The Brahmin got upset. He spent sleepless nights rueing his guilt. One night Yamadharma appeared in his dream again and said : "I am convinced that your anguish is genuine. Do as I say. Make your daughter attend to your needs in such a manner that others are tempted to say that you are a bad fellow keeping your daughter as your wife. Make sure that it is only a pretence. Whoever says that you are a wretched fellow, will get one millipede from the plate. " Paakkanaar told his wife with a smile : "Dear, when that Brahmin passed this way, you made that untrue comment. The last millipede in the plate is waiting for you." The two morals in this story are : To give bad food to unsuspecting others is a sin; to blame others without verifying the truth is an equally grave sin. The former has come to light in several cases when food inspectors recently carried out raids in hotels in Kerala. Bad food in costly hotels can be dubbed as costly bad food. Leave them and let us consider another costly bad food of epic dimension. When Sudama (Kuchela) walked all the way to Dwaraka to see his old schoolmate Krishna, he carried with him a packet of badly beaten bad rice. When he met his friend, the latter snatched the packet from him ignoring its condition(it was soaked in sweat) and then : "Kallum nellum ellaam Avalennu vacchittoru pidi Vallavannam vaari vegam Vayattilaakki. " (The beaten rice contained stones and unhusked rice. Krishna started gulping it with relish treating these also as beaten rice.) Rukmini was watching this. Mathimathi pathiyodu Paravootham cheythu 'Kaanthaa, mathimathi Kadasanam atheeva moolyam' " (The intelligent Rukmini caught hold of Krishna's hand saying: My dear husband, please stop. This kadasanam( bad food) is too costly) Rukmini saw that, with each gulp of the bad food, Krishna was transferring riches from Dwaraka to his friend's humble abode. The lines quoted are from 'Krishnagaadha' about which I have written a few days ago. B Books By M G Warrier Chasing Inclusive Growth* https://www.amazon.in/dp/B07B527VZY/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_DE9B9HADNK1210GAGE7Y "Chasing Inclusive Growth: Reforms for Financial Inclusion" is about the common man's perceptions, anxieties and aspirations about the 21st century India growth story with focus on resources management in the Indian context, by policy interventions in the structure and governance of the financial system. This is an area well researched and documented by several scholars, politicians and many in social media. The difference this book claims is the commonsense approach backed by a learning experience of the author spanning half a century. This book dispassionately analyzes the progress in economic and financial sector reforms in the context of initiatives taken by GOI and RBI to (a) provide better environment for doing business and (b) equip institutions in the financial sector to cater to the changing needs of society. It also tries to flag issues needing policy support in areas like gold management, social security systems like pension schemes, healthcare and education.

She was sure that I was unprepared and was waiting for me in the room, having worn the PPE herself. She shouted out the next step with a heavy accent from the Bronx, as I went about removing the gown. “You’ve got to be more resourceful; if there’s a next time,” she replied as I thanked her outside the isolation room. I read the manual again the same evening, memorising each step, but the turn to treat the patient never came. Years later, I was able to use this knowledge to train fellow doctors and nurses assigned to work at a COVID-designated hospital in Bengaluru during the first and second wave of the pandemic. Many of the healthcare workers were as unprepared as I was back then. The nurse’s training came in handy during the emerging pandemic situation and kept us safe at work. 2) Smallest flowers https://www.floweraura.com/blog/know-about-top-10-smallest-flowers-world Flowers look pleasing, they add aesthetic values and are a natural source of scent and happiness, agreed upon all of that. But there is a lot more than this that flowers do that we do not even realise. Have you ever found yourself gazing into space losing yourself to elements of nature or to be more precise sitting in your garden between all your potted flowers and plants and feeling sedated with thoughts that are jumbling in your mind? E Collage Reading Job Market for Engineers* : Dr Milind Kulkarni L& T Just because I am holding a senior position in HR with L&T, I have been getting many requests from my relatives, friends, acquaintances, to help their sons or daughters, who have freshly passed out from engineering college, to get job in L&T. The number of requests are huge. So many fresh engineers are unemployed, I could hardly helped only few of them to get job in L&T or in some other companies where I have contacts. I feel bad to say NO to many of the requests or for those whom I can't help. They get disappointed... I can understand. Parents invest their life time earned money just to see their sons or daughters getting degree in engineering. They think that jobs are easily available for engineers. After interviewing many of them, I can't even tell them that your son or daughter do not even have minimum required technical knowledge. Getting first class or distinction has become so easy without having fundamental knowledge of engineering. *It's high time for parents to stop running behind engineering degrees. USA produces around 1 lakh engineers per year for a $16 trillion economy. India produces 15 lakhs engineers for a $2 trillion economy. The earlier mass recruiting sector was Manufacturing. It used to recruit from the core branches like Electrical, Mechanical, Civil etc. But, Manufacturing is relatively stagnant at 17% of the GDP. So the core branch placements have become very difficult. The more recent mass recruiter was the IT sector. It grew from scratch to almost 5% of the GDP in a short time. IT Employed millions of engineers. Now, IT is also saturating. Only good, skilled IT Engineers are in demand. If you look at the sectoral composition of Indian economy, most of the sectors do not need engineers. Tourism is 10% of the GDP, does not require engineers. Financial sector, Trade, Hotels and Restaurants do not require engineers. Requirement of engineers in Health, Education, Agriculture is also negligible. More than 50% of the GDP has no role for Engineers. Still most of Indian youth are becoming Engineers. The situation is not sustainable. Demand is low while supply is high. Over and above this, skill level of an average engineer is poor, almost its non-existent in many cases. If we leave aside the top 100–200 colleges, most fresh engineers have no idea of what they studied. Ask a fresh mechanical engineer, can s/he design a simple frame? Today the situation is that most engineers are working in a field that has no connection to what they have studied in the college. This is a waste of resources. Engineering degree does not come cheap. It costs about 10-15 lakhs. For poor parents, its a huge burden. When their son / daughter is not able to secure a job, they are devastated. For the nation, you can calculate the loss. Leave around 1 lakh engineers that NASSCOM says are employable. The rest 14 lakhs have each wasted 10 lakhs of fees. That totals to around $20 Billion. Almost equal to the Government's spending on healthcare. Over this, there is loss of human capital. India need to replan the whole engineering education system. Goverment need to cut down on the number of colleges and improve the quality in the rest. Also students should explore other career options than everyone becoming Engineers. When it comes to education, a multitude of options are available today! From Aviation, to Hotel Management, Short Term Programs to big movie production courses, Data science, cyber security, Information Security, Cloud Technology Designing, Indian Armed Forces, Animation and VFX, Digital Marketing, Film Making, Technology Courses like SQL, PHP, Big Data, C, C++, etc. and much more! For a majority of courses like these, there are entrance exams too, such as the NATA, CEED, NID entrance, NIFT entrance, NDA entrance, MBA Entrance, Hotel Management entrance, CET, NEET and many more! Here, the right training goes a long way in getting your child admission to their dream institute! *Do you know what are the top career tracks of 2018 other than engineering?? See the following list. 1. Animation, VFX and Multimedia 2. Fashion Design, Event Management and Interior decoration. 3. Aeronautical and Aviation 4. Film making, Script Writing and Acting. 5. IT, cloud and data science. 6. Networking, information security. 7. Beauty, Modelling and Cosmetology 8. Fitness, dietitian and nutritionist 9. Foreign languages. 10. Music and Dance. So, please share this with your relatives /friends/12th pass students and help them in planning their education and career appropriately than madly running after engineering admissions! *Received from Prof Sasangan Mumbai Kiran Warrier's response : Engineering is just a basic degree which enhances your analytical skills more than most other degree courses. Very few stop with just engineering graduation and they have the option to continue on technical side or move on to MBA agree with the point that one should consider options beyond engineering while choosing field of study and career, especially new futuristic lucrative fields if they are of interest. But the logic that you are wasting resources by doing engineering is incorrect. F Leisure A man working in an IT Company became sick. He consulted many Multi Speciality Hospitals. Still he couldn't get cured. He was sad. Then his wife advised him "Why don't you consult a Veterinary Doctor?" He was shocked. He screamed at her "Are you mad?" She spoke softly "Nothing happened to me. It is you having a problem. You wake up early in the morning like a Cock, take half bath like a Crow, eat something like a Monkey, then run to office like a Race Horse, you work like a Donkey, there you scream at your juniors like a Wild Bear, evening you reach home and bark at us like a Dog, then you eat like a Crocodile. You go to bed and sleep like a Buffalo. That's the reason why I asked you to meet a Veterinary doctor." The man just sat there shocked looking at his wife. Wife asked him, "Now why are looking at me like an Owl?" *Received from S Venugopal via Group Email *Received from S Venugopal via Group Email G Quotes on Trust in Governance https://www.quotemaster.org/government+trust Like : "Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories." Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson was an American statesman, diplomat, lawyer, architect, philosopher, and Founding Father who served as the 3rd president of the United States from 1801 to 1809.
