Continued at H2 3) TNC Rangarajan Ref : Collage on Tuesday : F : Walking and Talking* A person has lived nearly 30,000 days if he is 83. And if he had walked a mile a day he would have walked 30,000 miles = 48,280 kms in his lifetime. The distance from Kashmir to Kanyakumari is 3,524 kms. Which means you could have traveled India up and down more than 12 times! Just found out that the circumference of the earth is 40,075 km. So you could have walked around the world! (Funtastic calculations Thanks 🙏-Warrier) *Related link : https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/walking-and-talking-44410/ 4) P V Mohan Krishnan Thiruvananthapuram I suddenly realised that my motivation to go on walks are linked to physically interact with vegetable vendors. Now with just two of us, needs have decreased and my walks have reduced. Have to stop home delivery of milk and newspapers 😀 (Till pandemic days my early morning walks in Thiruvananthapuram and in Mumbai included picking up milk and 3 or 4 newspapers and sometimes purchase of bread and other essentials. I was a regular presence at Chandran's "ഒരു ചായക്കട"* on Sankar Road Sasta mangalam when I was in Thiruvananthapuram 🙏-Warrier *A familiar name in Social Media : https://cityseeker.com/thiruvananthapuram/984547-chandran-chettan-s-tea-shop) 5) Dr Vandana Ajay Shared another Video covering a program in Calicut in which she participated recently : https://photos.app.goo.gl/2sLVKp3s2iKRBxM58 B Current Affairs 1) RBI Clarification on privatisation of PSBs https://m.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_PressReleaseDisplay.aspx?prid=54230 As clearly stated in the article itself, the views expressed in the article are those of the authors and do not represent the views of the Reserve Bank of India. ii) The Press Release relating to the August 2022 Bulletin highlights that “the gradual approach to privatisation adopted by the government can ensure that a void is not created in fulfilling the social objective of financial inclusion”. iii) The concluding paragraph of the article, inter-alia, mentions that: - “From the conventional perspective that privatisation is a panacea for all ills, the economic thinking has come a long way to acknowledge that a more nuanced approach is required while pursuing it”; - “Recent mega merger of PSBs has resulted in consolidation of the sector, creating stronger and more robust and competitive banks”; - “A big bang approach of privatisation of these banks may do more harm than good. The government has already announced its intention to privatize two banks. Such a gradual approach would ensure that large scale privatisation does not create a void in fulfilling important social objectives of financial inclusion and monetary transmission.” Thus, the researchers are of the view that instead of a big bang approach, a gradual approach as announced by the Government would result in better outcomes. 2) MPC Meeting August 3-5, 2022 : Minutes released by RBI https://m.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_PressReleaseDisplay.aspx?prid=54236 C Collage Books/Literature Poetry/Life Shared by P V Mohan Krishnan Thiruvananthapuram 😊 How many of us can relate to this beautiful composition.... A beautiful poem by the Brazilian poet : Mário de Andrade : "My Soul Is in A Hurry." I counted my years and realized that I have less time to live than the time I have lived so far. I have more past than future. I feel like that boy who had a bowl of cherries. At first, he gobbled them, But when he realized there were only few left, He began to taste them intensely and passionately... I no longer have time to deal with mediocrity/ordinary. I do not want to be in meetings where flamed egos parade.... I am bothered by the envious, Who seek to discredit the most able, To usurp their places, coveting their seats, talent, achievements and luck. I truly do not have time for endless conversations, Useless discussions about the lives of others who are irrelevant to mine..... I no longer have the time to handle or manage the sensitivities of people who, Despite their chronological age, are immature..... I hate to confront those who struggle for power, And those who do not debate the content, just the labels.... My time has become scarce to debate labels. I can understand the inner essence in this world now..... My soul is in a hurry.... Not many cherries left in my bowl.... I want to live close to people who are "human" - Humans who laugh at their own weaknesses; And away from those, became smug and overconfident with their triumphs, And away from those filled with self-importance..... The essentials are what make life worthwhile.... And for me, the essentials are more than enough! Yes, I'm in a hurry. I'm in a hurry to live with the intensity, And passionately that only maturity can give.... I do not intend to waste any of the remaining cherries.... I am sure they will be exquisite, Much more than those eaten so far. My goal is to reach the end satisfied, And at peace with my loved ones, and my conscience... As said by Confucius : “We have two lives. The second begins when you realize you only have one.” II Books By M G Warrier Amazon.in https://www.amazon.in/dp/B08NT36GB2/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_633RZKB3SKDA7KV48FMP Notion Press https://notionpress.com/author/m_g_warrier Amazon.com https://www.amazon.com/s?k=M+G+Warrier Flipkart https://www.flipkart.com/books/economics-business-and-management-books/m-g-warrier~contributor/pr?sid=bks%2Cxjk D V Babusenan's Column : Caste Hate in olden days In1919, a carpenter belonging to a backward caste in the princely state of Travancore, took bath in a pond exclusively meant for upper castes. The owner of the land to which the pond belonged, got the thus 'polluted' pond purified and asked the carpenter to reimburse the cost of cleaning. The latter refused. Thereupon, the former took the matter to the court. As the decisions of the lower courts were in favour of the pond's owner, the carpenter(presumably not an ordinary one) went in appeal to the High Court which also favoured the lower courts' decision. But its observation is very significant. It said that, although such practices were superstition-ridden and devoid of reason according to modern western standards, since they were in order as per the laws extant in Travancore, the carpenter should be deemed to have broken the law. Continued at H 1 E Collage Learning Eagle Story (Continued) : Vathsala Jayaraman When we see eagles flying at great heights we may think that eagles fly by instinct.Many do not know that if eagles are not taught to fly they will be safe and lazy like ducks. Shri Babusenan wrote about depriving the babies of the comfirt zone. How the mother trains is the most important thing. The mother flaps its wings. The child climbs on it. Mother flies taking the baby on its wings. Continued at H 3 F Leisure A reader sought my "explanation" for my "early morning comment on authenticity referring to "mirror image". Here it is : https://exrbites.blogspot.com/2016/10/m-g-warrier-m-134-glass-of-mirror.html?m=1 A Glass of Mirror! By M G Warrier I had a sleepless night The morning after, I saw the mirror Shocked, bewildered I ran away… ’Cos, I didn’t see me, In the mirror The mirror doesn’t cheat, I believed… I could feel my face, I touched my nose, But then…Where am I? If I am not in the mirror, How can anyone see me? How can I ask, Someone who can’t see me, To feel me by touch? ** ** ** A sudden ‘shout’… Brought me back To my senses… “Who has reversed the mirror*?” *** *It was a fancy mirror. One side mirror and the other side opaque. G Quotes on Eagles https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/eagle-quotes Like : "I like to be a tiger roaming the jungle or an eagle soaring the skies." Sol Campbell Sulzeer Jeremiah Campbell (born 18 September 1974) is an English professional football manager and former player who was most recently the manager of National League club Southend United. He previously managed Macclesfield Town from November 2018 to August 2019. A centre-back, he spent 20 years playing in the Premier League and had an 11-year international career with the England National Team. H 1) Continued from D Keeping several such instances in mind, Kumaran Asan, the great poet wrote: "Maattuvin chattangale swayam, allenkil Maattum athukalee ningale thaan". (Change the laws on your own;if not, the laws themselves will change you) Atrocities perpetrated on people, on the basis of caste discrimination, in those days, were many. In this respect, the princely state of Cochin, though much small in size as compared to Travancore,was not far behind. Pandit K. P. Karuppan, a gifted poet belonging to a backward community ,who suffered many an insult on account of it, gave vent to his feeling in a poem addressed to his king. The iniquities and inhuman practices with royal consent that the low caste people had to put up with are narrated to a certain extent in Sreedhara Menon's book on the history of Kerala. Like Pandit Karuppan in Cochin, Asan in Travancore also had to stomach many insults as he too was born in a low caste. In1908 when he was35 years old ,Asan wrote: "Enthinnu bhaarathadhare karayunnu Paarathanthryam ninakku Vidhikalpithamaanu thaaye Chinthikka jaathimadiraandhar Aditchu thammil anthappedum Thanayar enthinaye swarajyam?" (The land of Bharatha, why do you cry? Mother, this thraldom is your destiny. When your sons are fighting with one another and dying, having been intoxicated with the liquor of caste hate, where is the need for you to become free? ) It took a decade from then for the freedom movement to be electrified with the arrival of Gandhiji on the scene. In Kerala, the great poet Vallatthol added momentum to the freedom movement with his beautiful description ,in verse, of the land of Kerala and the persona of the great leader of the freedom struggle, Gandhiji. Vallatthol wrote: Bhaaratham ennu kettaal abhimaana Pooritham aakanam antharangam Keralam ennu kettaalo thilaykkanam Chora namukku njarampukalil (Whenever we hear the word'Bhaaratham', our minds should fill with pride. And, whenever we hear the word'Keralam' the blood running through our veins should boil.) In the light of the fresh wave of enthusiasm felt by the freedom fighters and those who supported them, the question raised by Asan, as to why Bharat should get freedom at all, looked reactionary to some of them. In January1922, Asan had accepted a gift of silk shawl and gold bangle from the much unwelcome Prince of Wales at the Madras University. This added fuel to the critics' anger. ( Such an honour at the hands of the Maharaja was denied to him, it was said, because of his low birth while the other two of the triumvirate got it.) How could the critics know the depth of bitterness felt by the poet on account of caste discrimination! (To be continued) 2) Continued from A2 Maha Periyava Charanam, “I once went to a place called Vaasangere in Karnataka to have His darshan. He was camping in the mines area which belonged to Sandur Maharaja. Swamigal was a sitting on a tarpaulin along with the other devotees. Annathurai Iyengar of Veda Raksha Nidhi Trust was also there with a few students from his Veda Patashala. It was around 10.30 in the night. The Sandur Maharaja, Maharani and their son were also there. His son was a Reader in the Department of Mathematics at Yale University in the US. He had a PhD degree in Maths. His parents were standing there respectfully before Him but he appeared to be quite casual. Swamigal conversed with the Maharaja and Maharani in Kannada for a while. After a while He turned towards their son and asked, “Where do you live? What are you doing?” “I am a Reader in Maths Dept at Yale University”, he replied. “What have you studied, you have done your PhD in which branch of Maths”, He asked. Their son did not answer for a minute, hesitating to reply as he was unsure if Swamigal could make sense of what he had studied. His father goaded him to reply. “Quantum Theory.”, he said, matter-of-factly. Swamigal drew a +ve sign on the mud and circled it; He also drew a -ve sign and circled it. Pointing to the two signs Swamigal asked him, “Did you use the positive or the negative approach in your Quantum Theory PhD thesis study?” Their son who was a bit indifferent until then, was startled to hear this from Him. He was trembling for words and suddenly became more respectful and replied, “Positive Approach.” “Why did you not take the Negative Approach, will you do you it later”, He asked. “It is difficult to use the Negative Approach”, he said. Swamigal looked at Annathurai Iyengar and said, “He is saying it is difficult; can you ask the Veda students to recite this particular verse from Rig Veda?”, and prompts them with first two words. The students recited that particular verse for 5 minutes. After this He turned to their son and said, “you must have obtained your PhD in your 24th or 25th year correct?” “In my 25th year”, said he. “Rig Veda, the verse which you heard now, talks both about the Positive and the Negative approaches”, He said. The son was astonished and requested the students to recite the verse again. “Are you now thinking that you need not have spent lakhs and lakhs of rupees for your 25 years of education and if only you had studied the Vedas you would have learnt this Truth in just 7 years?!”, replied Lord Parameshwara.” ***** Narrated by Shri Thiruvannamalai Gowrishankar Mama! Yale University is one of the top universities in the world, but obviously not a match for the Vedas! :))) This is the beauty of Maha Periyava!! I would say the beauty of Vedas. Subbaraman 3) Continued from E When the baby feels very secure seating on her mother, the mother dives suddenly, plummeting downwards, depriving the baby of its seat. The baby is in a free fall, tumbling down and down. The mother within seconds catches hold of the baby, comforts and gives some rest. This comfort does not last long. Once again the mother pushes the baby out in the air. The process gets repeated hundreds of times until the baby is strong enough to fly alone & experiences the thrill of total freedom. The mother, notwithstanding its affection makes sure what is good for the baby. The intensive coaching makes the child live on its own. She does not hesitate to make the baby suffer for good. What a great training comparable to army training! (The following is a repeat message about the managerial capability of eagles ) Many of the business training institues have "eagle" as their name or emblem. Eagles are role models not only to mothers but also to business people at large. Eagle seems to convey" Don't quake or complain.Soar above the crowd, look around, compare and do better. Eagles soar to great heights, have a sharp vision, have a clear view of the world below especially on the prey to catch. The businessmen should have a clear vision of what is happening in the market from a far off place, recognize the potential customers, attract or (attack)them at the right moment. At the same time , like an eagle, be aware of the probable hurdles and be prepared to face the same. Eagles are mostly confined to certain territories, mountains or forests, but know every nook and corner of the place. So also businessmen should concentrate on certain aspects, should be thorough with technology, product, marketing & competitors etc in his field. Enough is enough The bald eagles catch only one fish at a time. They know precisely how to catch this one fish and 99% they don't fail. The people have to restrict the number of products they can handle and choose the ones that match their skills,and be assured of success The eagles soar to the sky to get a prey. When they feel that it is beyond their reach, they simply fly down, ignoring the prey. The businessman should be able to assess his downfall and decide to stop his free fall. Any decision leading to disaster is not a decision at all. We see that though these attributes apply well to businessmen, the principles are of great significance to every individual. Mythologically too, Garuda, the son of Kasyapa and Vinata is glorified by Lord Krishna in Gita as " I am Garuda among birds", and he is the periya thiruvadi in Vaishnavite temples. It is said eagle is of great importance to Christians also. Very often Christians compare themselves to eagles, with the wings representing faith and belief in God and the wind as the Holy Spirit. No doubt, eagle is a symbol of strength, hope, wisdom and perseverence. It is a great management Guru. Vathsala Jayaraman Discriminations on the basis of castes, specially in God's Own Country (It was God's own country even in ancient times as Mahaabali is believed to have ruled the area) unacceptable. Was it in atonement that later on the first case of temple entry for all castes happened in Kerala?
