Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Monday September 5, 2022 Prayer 🙏 : Guru Vandanam https://youtu.be/25YCfRo2b3E Thiruvananthapuram ONAM Lights https://youtu.be/Z5ksFiQrLFg Nehru Trophy Boat Race 2022 https://youtu.be/LTSc6vuDdaI (Winners : Kattil Thekkethil) Good Morning 🌄 Link for a painting by Reshmy Warrier : https://www.instagram.com/p/CiCfXAdKRgr/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= Nice Day M G Warrier Teachers' Day September 5, 2022 : S Venugopal Chennai Happy Teachers Day🙏 Matha Pitha Guru Deivam is the dictum taught to us while we were school kids and I still even now remember the same since teachers are gurus who shape up the minds and channelise our thoughts positively. Let us go into the positive aspects and in this regard I try to remember my gurus in the Schools, Colleges and also in RBI Chennai and I still cherish the memory of some of them who used to teach in such an impressive manner and they still live in our hearts. After all, a teacher is the friend, philosopher and guide of the students' future! I am an old student of PS High School Mylapore and I am happy to repeat and chant the name of one great S T Srinivasan who used to take classes for Social Studies, a combination of Civics and History. Invariably the classes would be preceding lunch and most of us would be dozing off waiting for the lunch. The timings usually between 12 noon to 12 40 PM. STS would start telling a story of Akbar and Birbal and the entire class would be under his spell and when the bell used to ring for lunch we would be very unhappy. Anyone who would have had the fortune of being his student can share my happy feelings. STS was one of our pet and most admired teachers ever. Later after studies the experinces at RBI Chennai ZTC we had some very good teachers like one MR Lakshminarayana and Sri K.Viswananthan whose kind of teaching we used recall as lullaby to children.KV was a very kind hearted person and so was LN.We had one MR.Gopal who was a very serious teacher with a fund of information and used take strains to make every one understand the subject.Moving over to the SO Exams one of the classes b Sri N Jayaraman DY TR from Caah RBI Chennai@Madras was one of the most interesting one.He used to illustrate the functioning of Cash Dept in three parts like ISsue (Creation)Preservation and Destruction by equating to Brahma,Vishnu and SHiva!I still remember his class even after a few decades.At the RBSC Chennai there were experts and I can point out two teachers with respect.One was Shettyy who used to be very sincere in his attempts to see all of us understand and follow him CLR one of the visiting faculities and retd DGP from Chennai was very popular and we once skipped Lunch for him to continue classes. Smt.Parvathi Vairasundaram was one of our best faculty and the manner in which she used to teach Banking can be compared to reading English poetry of high class. MS Parvathis flow was always like the Niagara or Cauvery during the floods. We hail Parvathi's eloquence and I for one still cherish the memories of RBSC Cheanni. We salute our teachers on Teachers' Day! WE SALUTE ALL!!

Michael is raised by Martians, and he arrives on Earth as a true innocent: he has never seen a woman and has no knowledge of Earth's cultures or religions. But he brings turmoil with him, as he is the legal heir to an enormous financial empire, not to mention de facto owner of the planet Mars. With the irascible popular author Jubal Harshaw to protect him, Michael explores human morality and the meanings of love. He founds his own church, preaching free love and disseminating the psychic talents taught him by the Martians. Ultimately, he confronts the fate reserved for all messiahs. The impact of Stranger in a Strange Land was considerable, leading many children of the 60's to set up households based on Michael's water-brother nests. Heinlein loved to pontificate through the mouths of his characters, so modern readers must be willing to overlook the occasional sour note ("Nine times out of ten, if a girl gets raped, it's partly her fault."). That aside, Stranger in a Strange Land is one of the master's best entertainments, provocative as he always loved to be. Can you grok it? --Brooks Peck 4) Silver lining https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/silver-lining/silver-lining-44630/ Stuck at a point in life like rock, compelled to watch Years flowing like riverwater. Stuck at a point in life like rock, hoping to witness an enormous wave of water, which can bring a change in my life. While going through the dark hours of life, I found myself looking for Silver lining and dazzling dawn.

Not to change things, but to feel a couple of things twice.. Sometimes, I wish I was a Baby for a while... Not to be walked in the pram but to see my Mother's smile Sometimes, I wish I could go back to school... Not to become a child but to spend more time with those friends, I never met after school.. Sometimes, I wish I could be back in college... Not to be a rebel but to really understand what I studied Sometimes, I wish I was a Fresher at my work... Not to do less work but to recall the joy of the first pay cheque Sometimes, I wish I could marry again all over... Not to change the partner but to 'feel' the ceremony better Sometimes, I wish my kids were younger.... Not because they grew fast but to play with them a bit more Sometimes, I feel I still had some more time to live... Not to have a longer life but to know what I could give to others Since the times that are gone can never come back, Let's enjoy the moments as we live them from now on, to the fullest.. Let's Celebrate our Life - Every Moment, Every Day......I B On Record : RBI Financial Stability Report June 30, 2022 https://m.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_PressReleaseDisplay.aspx?prid=53939 Banks as well as non-banking financial institutions have sufficient capital buffers to withstand shocks. The capital to risk weighted assets ratio (CRAR) of scheduled commercial banks (SCBs) rose to a new high of 16.7 per cent, while their gross non-performing asset (GNPA) ratio fell to a six-year low of 5.9 per cent in March 2022. Macro stress tests for credit risk reveal that SCBs would be able to comply with the minimum capital requirements even under severe stress scenarios. C Babusenan's Column Please don't laugh at me when I say that I used to wonder ,looking at the beautiful beard of Karl Marx, how many thousands of times he would have stroked it, sitting at his desk in the British Museum and elsewhere, before drawing the final German line on his epoch making thesis 'Das Kapital'. Right or wrong, I feel like associating patience rather than wisdom to longer beards especially after seeing my former colleagues , now super senior persons, with long Tolstoy-like beards. I was surprised to learn from today's Collage that yesterday was set apart as International Day of the Beard. I must thank our poet Shri Franklin Misquith for that. He writes: "Well, when we sport a full beard Many men may feel a state of bliss. But I wonder whether the spouses Would like them to kiss." How true! The poet may not be aware ( the framers of the Day too) that a single beard altered the history of the land of Bharatha ! Here is the story : When Santanu, the king of the Moon dynasty, passed away, he left three sons by two wives-the legendary Bheeshma by the first wife Ganga Devi and Chitraangada and Vichitraveerya by his second wife Sathyavathi, the fisher woman. For Bheeshma, there was no question of his taking over the reigns. So Chitraangada became the king. He picked a quarrel with a Gandharva who killed him. Then Vichitraveerya became the king. Bheeshma got him married to Ambilka and Ambaalika,the daughters of the king of Kasi. Unfortunately, he contracted tuberculosis and died young, issueless. Bheeshma would not break his vow of celibacy even if the heavens would fall. This created a crisis. The dynasty was going to end! It was Sathyavathi who found a solution. She called the great sage Vyaasa, her pre -marital son,and asked him to impregnate Vichitraveerya's two widows in order to tide over the situation. He agreed. The girls did not like the idea at all, but they could not disobey their imperious mother-in-law. When Vyaasa's shaggily bearded face approached hers, Ambika closed her eyes hard in disgust as a result of which her child was born blind. The younger Ambaalika became so nervous that her child was born with a pallor.Vyaasa exceeded his brief and impregnated the maid of the princesses also and the child born to her was perfect in all respects and became ,in due course, the wisest among all the characters in the grand drama called the Mahaabhaaratha. He was known as Vidura. The blind child was Dhritharaashtra, the father of the Kauravaas. The child born with the pallor was Paandu, the father of the Pandavaas. As the former was blind, he had to forfeit the throne to Paandu which vitiated his mind permanently and was responsible for many an untoward episode in the great epic Pandu, the king, had five mighty children by two beautiful wives, but he was only their de jure father while their de facto fathers were five different gods, the reason being that conjugal happiness was taboo for him. In the Puranic days the belief was that the mood of the female partner during the sexual relation that caused conception decided, to a large extent, the physical characteristics of the offspring. Thus a shaggy beard decided the twists and turns in the great epic Mahabharatha. Bonus : Collage Profile : Robert A Heinlein https://www.britannica.com/biography/Robert-A-Heinlein His first story, “Life-Line,” was published in the action-adventure pulp magazine Astounding Science Fiction. He continued to write for that publication—along with other notable science-fiction writers—until 1942, when he began war work as an engineer. Heinlein returned to writing in 1947, with an eye toward a more sophisticated audience. His first book, Rocket Ship Galileo (1947), was followed by a large number of novels and story collections, including works for children and young adults. After the 1940s he largely avoided shorter fiction. His popularity grew over the years, probably reaching its peak after the publication of his best-known work, Stranger in a Strange Land (1961). His broad interests and concern for characterization as well as technology brought him a considerable number of admirers among general-interest readers. Among his more popular books are The Green Hills of Earth (1951), Double Star (1956), The Door into Summer (1957), Citizen of the Galaxy (1957), and Methuselah’s Children (1958). D Sanskrit Literature https://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Sanskrit_literature Due to its extensive use in religious literature, primarily in Hinduism, and the fact that most modern Indian languages have been directly derived from or strongly influenced by Sanskrit, the language and its literature are of great importance in Indian culture, similar to the importance of Latin in European culture. There are contemporary efforts towards revival, with events like the "All-India Sanskrit Festival" (since 2002), which holds annual composition contests.

A woman approaches a man and says. "Excuse me Sir I'm doing a little survey, can I ask you questions?" The man says : "Yes of course" Woman: "If you're travelling in a bus and a female gets on the bus and she's got no available seat would you give up your seat for her?" Man : "No." Woman : "What if the lady that got on the bus was pregnant, would you give up your seat then?" Man : "No." Woman : "What if the lady got on the bus was a senior lady, would you give your seat then?" Man : "No." Woman : "You are one selfish man, you have no manners. Who do you think you are?" Man : "I am the Bus Driver" 2) Drink, And/Or, Pay Taxes!* Happy morning.....have a hearty laugh.... Mary is the proprietor of a bar. She realizes that virtually all of her customers are unemployed alcoholics and, as such, can no longer afford to patronise her bar. To solve this problem, she comes up with a new marketing plan that allows her customers to drink now, but pay later. She keeps track of the drinks consumed on a ledger (thereby granting the customers loans). Word gets around about Mary's "drink now, pay later" marketing strategy and, as a result, increasing numbers of customers flood into Mary's bar. Soon, she has the largest sales volume for any bar in the area. By providing her customers freedom from immediate payment demands, Mary gets no resistance when, at regular intervals, she substantially increases her prices for wine and beer, the most consumed beverages. Consequently, Mary's gross sales volume increases massively. A young and dynamic vice-president at the local bank recognises that these customer debts constitute valuable future assets and increases Mary's borrowing limit. He sees no reason for any undue concern, since he has the debts of the unemployed alcoholics as collateral. At the bank's corporate headquarters, expert traders figure a way to make huge commissions, and transform these customer loans into DRINKBONDS, ALKIBONDS and PUKEBONDS. These securities are then bundled and traded on international security markets. Naive investors don't really understand that the securities being sold to them as AAA secured bonds are really the debts of unemployed alcoholics. Nevertheless, the bond prices continuously climb, and the securities soon become the hottest-selling items for some of the nation's leading brokerage houses. One day, even though the bond prices are still climbing, a risk manager at the original local bank decides that the time has come to demand payment on the debts incurred by the drinkers at Mary's bar. He so informs Mary. Mary then demands payment from her alcoholic patrons, but being unemployed alcoholics they cannot pay back their drinking debts.Since, Mary cannot fulfil her loan obligations, she is forced into bankruptcy. The bar closes and the eleven employees lose their jobs. Overnight, DRINKBONDS, ALKIBONDS and PUKEBONDS drop in price by 90%. The collapsed bond asset value destroys the banks' liquidity and prevents it from issuing new loans, thus freezing credit and economic activity in the community. The suppliers of Mary's bar had granted her generous payment extensions and had invested their firms' pension funds in the various BOND securities. They find they are now faced with having to write off her bad debt and with losing over 90% of the presumed value of the bonds. Her wine supplier also claims bankruptcy, closing the doors on a family business that had endured for three generations, her beer supplier is taken over by a competitor, who immediately closes the local plant and lays off 150 workers. Fortunately though, the bank, the brokerage houses and their respective executives are saved and bailed out by a multi-billion no-strings attached cash infusion from their cronies in the Government. The funds required for this bailout are obtained by new taxes levied on employed, middle-class who have never been in Mary's bar. Now, you know - Banking & Economics. *Shared by P V Mohan Krishnan Thiruvananthapuram G Quotes on life 🙏 after death There is no conclusive evidence of life after death, but there is no evidence of any sort against it. Soon enough you will know, so why fret about it!!!!!* Robert. A. Heinlein. Robert Anson Heinlein was an American science fiction author, aeronautical engineer, and naval officer. Sometimes called the "dean of science fiction writers", he was among the first to emphasize scientific accuracy in his fiction, and was thus a pioneer of the subgenre of hard science fiction. *Shared by Mansoor Sait More : https://www.azquotes.com/quotes/topics/life-after-death.html
