Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Wednesday July 20, 2022 🙏 1) Parrots in the Park https://youtu.be/vIHTVyi6cZw 2) Asha Sharat launching an App for dance https://youtu.be/LtAqQxEQEwU (The new App is being launched in association with Prana on July 23, 2022. Yesterday, July 19 was Asha's Birthday. Ayurarogyasaukhyam 🙏 and Best Wishes to her and her dear ones) 3) De-stressing thoughts : https://youtu.be/gcKGd0FT7kA (Link Courtesy : S W Fadnawis) Good Morning 🌄 Nice Day M G Warrier A Select Messages/Responses 1) Vathsala Jayaraman Chennai A beautiful narration of emotional bondage that exists in a Maratha-Punjabi combo person whom not only Krishna and Godavari but Ravi, Beas and Sutlej have influenced a lot culminating in the ultimate identity of 'I am an Indian'. The best self analysis, I have ever read. 2) K N Ganapathy I wanted to complete reading of the portion of Manu Smriti which I had left out earlier. Manu Smriti is available in Google, running to about 600 pages. But now I need not read it. Smt. Vatsala Jayaraman has given it in a nutshell form in such a way that reading the whole of the Smrithi is not going to educate you further. The article from Shri Y S P Thorat was absorbing and is a portrait of the attitude of an ideal Indian. K N Ganapathy 3) Vishnu Kelkar Collage Cover Story* by YSP Thorat Salute for sharing mesmerising and thought provoking write up by respected Shri Thorat Sir. I was glued to his life story till the end where he says : 'The truth is that the only unwavering identity within me is that of an 'Indian'. It is an identity that I am proud to carry with me... in this life and thereafter. ' That's how it should be. We do live in वसुधैव कुटुंबकम् concept. VNKelkar * https://www.warriersblog.com/2022/07/punjab-sindh-gujarat-maratha.html B Media Response July 19, 2022 RBI's balance sheet management* This refers to the article "RBI's low dividend payout raises concerns" (The Hindu Business Line, July 19). The misleading signal in the caption has been more than compensated by the excellent analysis of the present status of RBI's Balance Sheet. For record's sake, it may be recalled that the neglect of the strength of RBI balance sheet started in 2013-14 when an arbitrary decision was taken about the 'adequacy' of reserves. Three consecutive years saw continuous depletion of RBI's reserves. When things went out of control, a break came in the form of Jalan Committee which recommended a reserve level of 5.5 percent to 6.5 of the Balance Sheet size which resulted in substantial transfer from surplus Income to reserves in 2021-22. The observation, "It is likely that the current HR policies and practices of the RBI do not support the transformation that is needed for this purpose" needs a closer look from RBI and it's owner GOI. HR Division handling recruitment to post-retirement welfare of employees in RBI needs a thorough overhaul which will need policy support from GOI. Development of In-House talent is a neglected area in public sector and particularly in RBI. When areas like forex management are outsourced for lack of in-house talent outside agencies with dollar domination may not be favourably inclined to improve RBI's income. M G Warrier Mumbai *Not yet published C Collage in Classroom Heredity and Evolution https://www.britannica.com/browse/Evolution-Heredity-Genetics#:~:text And back in India : https://www.speakingtree.in/allslides/ancient-hindu-discoveries/217836 D Babusenan's Column One : Manu Smriti My knowledge of the Manu Smriti, the 22 century old Hindu dharmasastra, was very much limited to an unpleasant verse ending with"Na sthree swathantryam arhathi"(woman does not deserve freedom) I was also happy that the efforts of a segment of people to have our Constitution drafted on the lines of this Smriti did not succeed. I am grateful to The Collage for making me wiser as regards the Manu Smriti. Now I understand that it was not the work of a single person having largely misogynistic tendencies, but that of minumum two persons of opposing tendencies with probable interpolations. One of them saw women as an object of pleasure and a producer of more male children to work in the fields which an agricultural background naturally preferred, while the other saw her as a mother and home maker worthy of love and respect. Unfortunately, the former opinions prevailed. Continued at H1 (I'm amused to watch the present generation debating on the contents of scriptures written or recited thousands of years ago. When we are able to amend a Constitution given to ourselves 80 plus years ago, perhaps 70 plus times why no one thinks of updating age-old sanctions to suit present day needs instead of digging the buried past? Incidentally Britain continues with an unwritten Constitution and are comfortable with the changes happening around the world and within their own small Empire🙏-Warrier) Two : Vasudhaiva Kudumbakam I feel happy that my reference to 'Vasudhaiva Kudumbakam' has evoked some interest. India had given one more precious motto to the world which can be regarded as a twin sister of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam. It is 'Lokaah samasthaah sukhino bhavanthu'. (May all beings everywhere be happy) According to Nithya Chaithanya Yathi, a saintly scholar who is no more, it should be one's prayer before one starts the day. It is beyond doubt that these two together form the path to the world -is -one -family concept and that, for the realisation of it, qualities like love, mutual respect and tolerance are essential. But, regrettably, what we see in the world today is the triumph of hate, mutual suspicion and intolerance, even in the land that contributed these great messages to the world. Thus, what was a remote dream until a few decades ago, has turned out to be an impossibility now. The last century gave us two world wars, no doubt, but great men too. Where reason now fails to give us hope, some miracle may happen.

Lewis Thomas Lewis Thomas was an American physician, poet, etymologist, essayist, administrator, educator, policy advisor, and researcher. Thomas was born in Flushing, New York and attended Princeton University and Harvard Medical School. H Continued from D More or less the same Na-sthree-swaathantryam-arhathi approach prevailed in the 19th century Victorian England which is clearly shown in a verse in one of the long poems of Alfred Lord Tennyson. Here is the verse: "Man for the field and woman for the hearth: Man for the sword and for the needle she: Man with the head and woman with the heart: Man to command and woman to obey; all else confusion. " In that England ,where getting together to fight for their rights was unthinkable for women, towards the end of the century, a very bold women, Millicent Fawcett by name, formed with great difficulty an organization of women to fight for freedom. She was an ardent disciple of the great social thinkerJohn Stuart Mill and the name of the association wasNational Union of Women's Suffrage Societies (NUWSS). Six years later, the more militant among them formed another organization known as Women's Socially Political Union(WSPU) whose leader was the fire-spitting Emmeline Pankhurst, an MP's widow. Both these organizations had nicknames. The former was referred to as Suffragists and the latter as Suffragettes. The suffragettes, being militant, did many things bordering on violence. They heckled ministers, damaged pictures in art galleries in order to attract public attention. One suffragette by name Emily Davison, during one Derby horce race, jumped in front of a running horse and killed herself. The establishment, being Manu Smriti oriented (Manu Smriti was translated into English in the 18th century) ,treated the two agitating organizations harshly. Bertrand Russell was attracted towards this women's movement. He assisted the moderate Suffragists and helped them greatly in propagating their cause. He even stood as their candidate in a parliamentary by-election with the pre knowledge of sure defeat. With all these efforts women in England had to wait until the end of the first World War to get freedom partly. Women of 30 years and more got voting rights. One reason for this attitudinal change of the powers that be was the valuable contribution of the women folk to the country's war efforts.
