Warrier's Collage on Tuesday September 6, 2022

Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Tuesday September 6, 2022 Prayer 🙏 : https://youtu.be/C3fOlMq2Tzk New British Prime Minister Liz Truss : https://youtu.be/5cjBRK_mGNI Know More : https://www.theguardian.com/politics/live/2022/sep/05/liz-truss-pm-prime-minister-rishi-sunak-energy-bill-freeze-tory-conservative-leader-uk-politics-live-latest-updates Good Morning 🌅 3...2..1. Closing Bell🔔 🔔 🔔 Warrier's Collage was an offshoot of the disruption caused by Pandemic. When morning walk, reading print edition of newspapers and magazines, meeting and chatting with friends, all became nostalgic memories and life got squeezed into a smartphone, messaging became the only medium of interaction. Collage evolved. Many of you encouraged and contributed your resources to help Collage become popular. Pandemic has receded and life is limping back to normal. Having written about "Knowing when to stop"* in March 2021, and having been reminding myself about it time and again thereafter, today, after 18 months, I am convinced that the time is opportune to stop issuing the Collage in its present format. So, the Warrier's Collage reaching your mail box on Thursday September 8, 2022 will be the last issue of the daily edition of Warrier's Collage, for now. Sunday Collage will continue for some more time. I'll continue to be present in email and WhatsApp groups and will post my thoughts in Social Media occasionally. A big Thank You to all of you, readers, contributors and everyone who helped Collage reach this far, in such a short period. Nice Day M G Warrier *https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/knowing-when-to-stop-and-make-a-new-beginning-2-30331/ A Messages/Responses 1) Dr Prabha Ramadurai My humble Teachers' day Pranams to my all Collage friends from whom I am learning at least one new thing daily.

The first one was Shri Dinkar Krishnarao Joglekar while in school and even thereafter.He was a perfect example of a gentleman and teacher, both and had a great impact on me. Other was Shri S.R.Malthankar who was my immediate boss in Nagpur. Apart from many qualities he possessed , he was a personification of concentration. His influence on my working in Bank guided me always.Both mu gurus are not in this world but their memory will never fade from my heart. I pay my respects to them on the occasion of 'Teacher's Day. Apart from these two, I would have had another name to my list of gurus, if I had come in contact with Shri Warrier early in my life but alas, I consider him as my guru and dear friend, both. (Dear Fadnawis, somewhere I have read that we can learn different things from different animals and birds. I learnt from my father about communicating with relatives and friends. He had a few among friends and relatives with whom he won't talk. I decided that I will never close communication from my side, with anyone in my life 🙏 So far I could follow this principle. Have a Nice Day -Warrier) B Current Affairs Media Response : M G Warrier September 5, 2022 Banking on banking* This refers to the Book Review "Snapshot on Indian banking" (The Hindu Business Line, September 5). The role played by the financial sector and the banking system in India's economic growth-i dependence has not received the recognition it deserves. From the All India Rural Credit Survey to the current coordinated efforts by GOI and RBI to retain the resielence of Indian Financial Sector, irrespective of whether the players and stakeholders are legally part of the banking system need to be understood in the right spirit. India's central bank has played it's role in right earnest in building up a strong institutional system responsible in mobilisation of resources and purveyal of short-term, medium term and long term credit. It was never easygoing for the Reserve Bank of India to play the development role assigned to it without compromise on its core central banking functions. What gets media attention or debated publicly are about RBI chasing Inflation Target or about its role as banking regulator. The concluding observation quoted by the reviewer deserves pointed attention from the government. I quote : "Autonomy in governance and managerial matters of human-relations related aspects would also be helpful to bring about a competitive incentive structure, as also flexibility in labour or personnel hiring practices." M G Warrier Mumbai *Edited version published in The Hindu Business Line on September 6, 2022 : https://www.thehindubusinessline.com/opinion/letters-to-the-editor/article65854478.ece C Teachers Day Special : I Book By Dr S Radhakrishnan The Bhagavadgita https://amzn.eu/d/59wQJ2n Description The Bhagavadgita, or 'Sacred Song', holds an assured place among the world's great scriptures. In fourteen hundred lines of verse, the relationship of man with God - and the intense joy of divine love - are celebrated,in a language that is precise and beautiful.The Gita is a tale of action, taking the form of a dialogue between Arjuna and Krishna on the eve of a battle. Krishna teaches the fearful Arjuna the need for action and the requirement that he - like all mankind - take his place in the world in love and faith. Only through the search for God and the Absolute will the true self be discovered. This edition of the Bhagavadgita offers the Sanskrit text as well as Radhakrishnan's English translation and a commentary that has become a classic. His clear understanding of the profound wisdom contained within the Gita ensures an equally clear vision of its powerful and eternal message, one that cannot fail to touch the minds and spirits of all those who reach for it. About the Author Professor S. Radhakrishnan (1888-1975) was a prominent philosopher, author and educationalist. He was equally at home in the European and Asiatic traditions of thought, and devoted an immense amount of energy to interpreting Indian religion, culture and philosophy for the rest of the world. He was a visiting professor at many foreign universities, and served as India's Ambassador Extraordinary to the USSR from 1949 to 1952. He was elected to the office of vice-president of India in 1957. He became the President of India in 1962 and held this rank until 1967, when he retired from public life. He wrote a number of books for readers the world over. Some of his outstanding works are The Hindu View of Life, An Idealist View of Life and Indian Philosophy, Vols I and II. He dedicated this translation to Mahatma Gandhi. II Verse For Today : Franklin Misquith Teachers Day, September 5, 2022 Most Teachers the world over are really a spectacular wonder, Some are imbued with lightning and thunder, Of late a handful of them focus only on back biting and plunder, But those in my time 80 years ago were of a wonderful breed when as a tiny tot all I could do was mumble, tumble and commit many a blunder. But many, many teachers who have taken to this profession, One could make a very frank confession, And we were offered on several counts many, many a concession, Those good and kind souls will always remain our obsession. Now we must remember that Teachers like all of us are human creatures, Though each is endowed with different mindsets and features, Tis good each of them have varying natures, Some of them when they behave otherwise need a few ligatures. D Collage Profile : Antole France https://www.britannica.com/biography/Anatole-France The son of a bookseller, he spent most of his life around books. At school he received the foundations of a solid humanist culture and decided to devote his life to literature. His first poems were influenced by the Parnassian revival of classical tradition, and, though scarcely original, they revealed a sensitive stylist who was already cynical about human institutions.

He lived in plenty and prosperity. Unfortunately his ship was caught in a storm and sank. His factory had to be closed. His debts exceeded his assets. He lost everything and became a pauper. For five long years, he worked very hard and gained back his lost status. He constructed a bigger factory, acquired two ships. He became richer than before. Learning about the turn of fortune, journalists assembled in his house. They flooded him with series of questions about the secret of his success. His reply was "I know that I failed in my business. But I never told myself that I am a failure. That is the reason behind my regained success. Failing in an endeavour is one dimension. and to treat oneself as failure is yet another dimension. Do not label yourself as 'lazy' or 'good for nothing'. That will become your own enemy. But mere positive thinking alone may not help always. Psychologists and philosophers recommend "AUTHENTIC THINKING". That is seeing through bird's eyes. Whether thoughts are good or bad, tempting or happy, when you view them from a distance, a clear understanding will crystallize within you. After all this is the main concept behind Gita too.

Ironic and skeptical, he was considered in his day the ideal French man of letters Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers - Josef Albers Josef Albers was a German-born artist and educator.

But the dog did not enjoy the nutritious food provided. Like any other being, it wanted a change. It left the house and wandered here and there for food. It was unable to fight with the street dogs. While searching amidst garbage, it came across a dried bone. Being hungry the dog bit the bone. While chewing, its gum got punctured and blood started oozing out. In the dog thought that the blood was coming out from the bone and started chewing further. A wise dog looked at this and said "Hey, the blood is coming from your gums and not from the bone. It is only a dried bone. It has no blood. But the dog was firm. It said,"Until I bit the bone, my tongue had not known the taste of blood. Only on biting this, I know the taste of blood. You cannot trick me," So saying the dog continued biting more ferociously. Similarly somebody may say "Before I came into contact with a particular object, I was not happy. After I came into contact with the object, I am quite happy." Happiness comes from object. This is dog's logic. Is there any difference between the dog biting the dry bone and those human beings who affirm that they derive pleasure from cigars and alcohol? Vathsala Jayaraman
