But the biggest hurt is that someone ignoring us when we value them a lot🌸" *Shared by V Rangarajan World Mosquito's Day* : Franklin Misquith Verse for the day. World Mosquito Day Today all mosquito's can have a very hey day, But it is better in the swamp they happily stay. All the same some of them 'll fly about, They won't catch on if we scream or shout, Or look at them with a pout, They won't bother if we're thin or stout. The best is to swat them with a mosquito bat, They're executed on the spot without any spat. Mosquitoes are found, here, there and everywhere, But it is the female of the species one should beware, It will give you a sharp bite, This will keep you awake all night, We could smother on them a spray, This will knock them out flat with no delay. *Know More : https://www.oneindia.com/india/world-mosquito-day-2022-date-significance-theme-and-all-you-need-to-know-3450099.html World Mosquito Day 2022 is observed on 20 August to mark the historic discovery by British doctor Sir Ronald Ross in 1897 that malaria is transmitted between humans by female Anopheles mosquitoes. His discovery laid the foundations for scientists across the world to better understand the deadly role of mosquitoes in disease transmission and come up with effective innovative interventions. Sir Ronald Ross was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for his work on malaria in 1902. A Messages/Responses 1) TNC Rangarajan I used to know many people in Madras But there are very few in Chennai! (True We are all becoming strangers at "home". Collage tries to help reconnect and nurture relationships-Warrier) 2) S M Sendil A small coastal village of Bay of Bengal attained so much fame as Madras - and now renamed as Chennai, as the original owner from whom the Britishers bought the village some centuries ago,was Chennappa Naicker- because of the landing of the Britishers and their establishing many of the oldest institutions mentioned. So it is a historical advantage. *Chennai, on the Bay of Bengal in eastern India, is the capital of the state of Tamil Nadu. The city is home to Fort St. George, built in 1644 and now a museum showcasing the city's roots as a British military garrison and East India Company trading outpost, when it was called Madras. Religious sites 3) S Venugopal Shared a memory Shanthi Theatre @ Chennai Mount Road @ Anna Salai is demolished and it is really a sentimental moment for me and many seniors who has seen a number of very good Tamil Movies in Shanthi and mostly the legendary Sivaji Ganesan films. Named after his daughter Shanthi most of the family movies used to be released there and it was a homely experience indeed. The structure of the hall was so very well planned that it was like viewing a movie at home. One of the interesting aspects was when we, numbering a dozen, went to the comedy starring Sivaji and our CM Jaya and we took a lot of snacks like mixture etc. When we started munching the sound disturbed other viewers and they took objection. We positively settled the issue by offering them some share! The film was GALATTA KALYANAM directed by CV Rajendran B/O Sridar! The movie Shanti* was one of the early releases in the historic theatre. OM Shanthi OM to Shanthi now! Sitendra Kumar responded : From 1976 and onwards, when I joined the bank and whenever I went to Madras for training, I used to go to Shanti theatre by walk visiting Spencer, Higginbotham, Vummidyar etc; midway ending by visit at Shanti with a cup of coffee and a plate of bajji. The return journey was by bus . Shanti was truly a landmark. Sitendra Kumar *Watch a Video : https://youtu.be/3HkA6pi8nfQ 4) V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram You ask any eagle in the world. It will say that Chennai is where they are most welcome. Chennai is the citadel of Carnatic music. Chennai is where you get the best coffee in the world. The second best, one gets in RKN's book 'Dateless Diary' (What a description!) A modern Nandanaar will say : " Chennai pokaamal iruppeno" Continued at C 5) Kiran Warrier Mumbai Shared a note : A webinar was arranged by Anand Rathi Share and Stock brokers Ltd. Mr. Nilesh Shah, Head of Kotak securities Ltd. was speaker. Following are key takeaways : 1. Share of India in Global GDP has increased from 2.6 pc to 3.2 2. Share in export increased from 2.0 pc to 2.2. It is miniscule and govt has to do a lot in this area. 3. India is 6th largest economy of world. Continued at H 1 6) M G Warrier Mumbai : Shared a link : https://www.hindu-blog.com/2021/02/indianoor-ganapathy-temple-near-kottakkal.html?m=1 Indianoor Ganapathy Temple near Kottakkal The main deities worshipped in the temple are Vishnu and Shiva. But the temple is famous for the picture of Ganapathy on the south wall of the sanctum sanctorum of Shiva. This Ganapathy is more important than murtis of Vishnu and Shiva. Vinayaka Chaturthi is the most important festival in the temple. 7) S W Fadnawis Shared a link : https://www.thecricketmonthly.com/story/1324035/miracle-at-short-leg Added an information : While going through the Indian Expres today, I came across a very interesting item on Explained page. IT IS GOOD TO LEAN ON RIGHT WHILE YOU POP THAT PILL Excerpt: A new study by researchers from Jhons Hopkins University has found that popping a pill while leaning towards the right is an ideal posture to ensure fastest absorption into the blood stream. It further describes the biological reasons thereof. ( So it is always beneficial to be on the right of center than left. _My comment). S W Fadnavis. B Current Affairs 1) RBI Bulletin August 2022 https://m.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_PressReleaseDisplay.aspx?prid=54225 See D Media Response : M G Warrier August 19, 2022 Hunger management* This refers to the editorial "Food for thought " (August 19). The issues raised need to be addressed quickly. Perceptions about adequacy of stocks and the possible remedial measures to avoid a food crisis may differ. But the reality that food reserves are depleting cannot be ignored. The pandemic has affected food procurement and market prices adversely from different angles. Sure, free supply of foodgrains cannot continue indefinitely. But discontinuance of free ration doesn't impact overall consumption of foodgrains. Therefore we return to the need for production, procurement and price management. Quick attention has to be paid to these three areas from government machinery at all levels.

The vast majority are out with their latest mobiles, Taking photos of their near and dear all dressed in different styles. I own just a simple cellphone, We no longer have a telephone. With a cellphone one just has to aim and shoot, If we fail to do so, we shall be given the boot. Today photos will be shot in many an array, None of which will cause any ruckus or dismay. World Photographers Day, Will be forever and is here to stay. 💐🌷🌹 A related link : ttps://www.timesnownews.com/technology-science/world-photography-day-2022-here-are-some-photography-tips-and-tricks-for-smartphone-users-article-93657038 Collage MAS C V Subbaraman I am grateful for Shri Babusenan's kind words. He however is gifted with the power of writing in such an attractive style as to move any reader's heart. Though poetry is the emotional outward thrust of deep inner feeling, not all lines that come out are equally powerful or moving. POETS like William Shakespeare, Keats, Yeats, Wordsworth, and numerous others who have richly written on varied subjects are, in each in one's own way, unparalleled. Such great poets appear only once in a few generations, but they are read and admired and adored by all subsequent generations. Their writings remain invaluable for all times to come. There is one humorous incident in the work of Julius Caesar written by WS. One of the conspirators is by name Cinna. After the brilliant oratory of Antony which spurred the emotions of the Roman plebians to attack the conspirators, a group of commoners were hunting in the streets for the conspirators. One of them caught hold of a person and asked for his name, the latter said his name was Cinna. "Kill him" shouted the crowd. But this poor Cinna pleaded loudly, " I am Cinna the poet, not Cinna the conspirator!". Yet some one from the crowd instantly shouted, "He may not be the conspirator, but kill him for his bad verses!" I shall be greatly grateful to Goddess Muse if I did not belong to the category of writing bad verses. Poets or versifiers are vulnerable for their creations. Subbaraman V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram responded : RBI Governors are not known to be poetic except when they happen to be FMs and get an opportunity to present budgets. Otherwise, I would definitely have requested you to send your letters to that august position in poetic form. Such is its power! There is one famous verse in Malayalam that reminds one of the Cinna episode. "Pottikkaam thenga bhoothesaa Muttikkaathe oraandu jnaan Pottakkaavyam chamaykunna Dushtakkoottam nasikkaneh" This is what a character tells in an epochmaking satirical drama 'Chakkee chankaram'. He is praying Lord Siva "I am prepared to break a coconut every day in front of you for a year without fail. Kindly finish off these bad versifiers." D Current Affairs continued : Privatisation of PSBs : An alternative perspective https://m.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_ViewBulletin.aspx?Id=21205 This article offers an alternate perspective by taking inspiration from the strands of literature that justify the role of PSBs on several grounds. The ‘social view’ propagated by Atkinson and Stiglitz (1980) suggests that state-owned enterprises (SOEs) are created to address market failures, and often their social benefits exceed the social costs. According to this view, government-owned banks contribute to economic development and improve general economic welfare (Stiglitz, 1993). Another strand of literature suggests that lending by state-owned banks is either countercyclical or less pro-cyclical than lending by private banks, especially in emerging and developing economies and thus the public sector banks contribute to macroeconomic stability (Panizza, 2022; Micco and Panizza 2006). Various studies have shown that public sector banks have played a key role in catalyzing financial investments in low-carbon industries thereby promoting green transition in countries such as Brazil, China, Germany, Japan, and in the European Union (Mazzucato & Penna, 2016 and Schapiro, 2012 ).

Padmini is a respected and much-loved obstetrician and gynaecologist who has spent all her life living and working in Thandikudi, a remote tribal hamlet in the Palani Hills, South India. Shama teaches Women's Studies in a well-known college in Chennai. She shares a great relationship with her mother, Padmini. Muniamma is Padmini's trusted domestic help who knows more than she reveals. Malini, a contented homemaker, and her daughter, Dharini, still struggle to come to terms with the unexplained 'disappearance' of the most important person in their lives. Who is this person who knits the lives of these women? Light and Shadow traces the personal journeys of the five women as they struggle to make peace with their past and move forward. Bonus : "Saving for Survival" By M G Warrier https://www.amazon.in/dp/B07FZFZGQJ/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_A6NDBX7EBFFT3P7BRZY5 “Saving for Survival : Budget for Breadwinners” is intended as a primer for those who have started working during this century and are confused by the multi-dimensional advices surrounding them on financial planning. This Handbook doesn't give models or suggestions about any particular instrument in which to invest savings. It attempts to give some idea about preparing a Personal Budget or an Income and Expenditure Statement and gives suggestions on monitoring it on an ongoing basis. A section is also devoted to inadequacies in the National Pension System in India.. F Leisure Some tips shared by R Jayakumar SOME SOCIAL RULES THAT MAY HELP YOU : 1. Don't call someone more than twice continuously. If they don't pick up your call, presume they have something important to attend to; 2. Return money that you have borrowed even before the person that borrowed you remember or ask for it. It shows your integrity and character. Same goes with umbrellas, pens and lunch boxes. 3. Never order the expensive dish on the menu when someone is giving you a lunch/dinner. 4. Don’t ask awkward questions like ‘Oh so you aren’t married yet?’ Or ‘Don't you have kids’ or ‘Why didn't you buy a house?’ Or why don't you buy a car? For God’s sake it isn’t your problem; 5. Always open the door for the person coming behind you. It doesn’t matter if it is a guy or a girl, senior or junior. You don't grow small by treating someone well in public; 6. If you take a taxi with a friend and he/she pays now, try paying next time; 7. Respect different shades of opinions. Remember what's 6 to you will appear 9 to someone facing you. Besides, second opinion is good for an alternative; 8. Never interrupt people talking. Allow them to pour it out. As they say, hear them all and filter them all; 9. If you tease someone, and they don't seem to enjoy it, stop it and never do it again. It encourages one to do more and it shows how appreciative you're; 10. Say “thank you” when someone is helping you. 11. Praise publicly. Criticize privately; 12. There's almost never a reason to comment on someone's weight. Just say, “You look fantastic.” If they want to talk about losing weight, they will; 13. When someone shows you a photo on their phone, don't swipe left or right. You never know what's next; 14. If a colleague tells you they have a doctors' appointment, don't ask what it's for, just say "I hope you're okay". Don't put them in the uncomfortable position of having to tell you their personal illness. If they want you to know, they'll do so without your inquisitiveness; 15. Treat the cleaner with the same respect as the CEO. Nobody is impressed at how rude you can treat someone below you but people will notice if you treat them with respect; 16. If a person is speaking directly to you, staring at your phone is rude; 17. Never give advice until you're asked; 18. When meeting someone after a long time, unless they want to talk about it, don't ask them their age and salary; 19. Mind your business unless anything involves you directly - just stay out of it; 20. Remove your sunglasses if you are talking to anyone in the street. It is a sign of respect. More so, eye contact is as important as your speech; and 21. Never talk about your riches in the midst of the poor. Similarly, don't talk about your children in the midst of the barren. 22. After reading a good message try to say "Thanks for the message". APPRECIATION remains the easiest way of getting what you don't have.... John A D ..... Forwarded as received May be repeated. R Jayakumar G Quotes on light and shadows https://www.azquotes.com/quotes/topics/light-and-shadow.html Being desirable means being comfortable with your own ambiguity. The most ambiguous reality is that we are flesh and spirit at the same time. Within everyone there is light and shadow, good and evil, love and hate. In order to be truthful, you must embrace your total being. A person who exhibits both positive and negative qualities, strengths and weaknesses is not flawed, but complete.
