If a dog bites a man, it is no news but if a man bites a dog, it becomes a great news. But here, a dog without biting nor a man biting it, has attracted a great attention. An IAS couple at Delhi has been transferred out of Delhi for walking their dog in Delhi sports training centre daily in the evening, encroaching upon the time alloted to the trainees. Here, I am reminded of a quote by Madame da Stael, 'the more I see of men, the more I love my dog'. Even Mark Twain said 'the more I learn of people, the more I like my dog'. (We have to learn many things from animals and plants. 🙏-Warrier) 2) Friendship Message : Received from a close friend Starting from you Who are the 18 Friends you can't forget ever in your life?

B Current Affairs RBI Annual Report 2021-22 Date : May 27, 2022 Annual Report for the Year 2021-22 Today, the Reserve Bank of India released its Annual Report for 2021-22, a statutory report of its Central Board of Directors. The Report covers the working and functions of the Reserve Bank of India for the period April 2021 - March 2022. Source : RBI Media Response : Weather forecast May 31, 2022 Predictions and forecasts This refers to the report "Storm over IMD's monsoon onset call"(May 31). Many a times, predictions and forecasts are based on information, assumptions and perhaps intuition which also evolves from past experience. Astrologers, weathermen and central bankers who are professionally authorised to make predictions and forecasts, while being transparent about facts and figures they reveal, do not normally give out all information they rely on for their observations. The private weather agency joining issue here with IMD could have proved their sharper skills by making clear alternative predictions.

There will be nothing in the end : Nothing, That could be perceived by Eyes, Ears, Nose, By touch Or By taste! In between, from nothing Emerged something... From something came out Light and then Sound... Then, substance Atom by atom... Molecule by molecule... Then some of these became Live cells, gradually multiplying... Milleniums later... Life progressed across Universes On this planet, later named Earth, peace prevailed Oceans and Seas separated continents Life evolved Plants and animals flourished Panchabhootas supported Life in water, on land and in the air After a long time Something unnatural happened A parasite called human beings Infected earth They walked on two legs Accumulated and destroyed Precious resources They used every form of energy to destroy existence Themselves fast moving to... Nothing...

I said I was at my friend's home. Then my dad called all of my 10 friends on mobile and enquired. 4 of my friends replied, " Yes uncle, he was here only". 3 friends said "He has just left uncle". Two friends replied ,"Uncle, he is here only. Shall I put him on line ?" Next is the funniest response. My friend answered in my voice "Yes papa, what is the matter ?" After listening this lastly, my dad burst into laughter and said with tears in his eyes, "Today I came to know that Life doesn't create friends, but friends create life" Celebrate your friends. A Friend indeed.

Quotes on evolution https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/evolution-quotes Like : It is paradoxical, yet true, to say, that the more we know, the more ignorant we become in the absolute sense, for it is only through enlightenment that we become conscious of our limitations. Precisely one of the most gratifying results of intellectual evolution is the continuous opening up of new and greater prospects. Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electricity supply system.
