Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Saturday October 8, 2022 G Beautiful Gardens 🙏 https://youtu.be/J6oDTn_ENto Good Morning Nice Day M G Warrier Messages/Responses 1) E Madhavan Memories of good old Bombay rushed to memory and the fragrance of Iranian Restaurants wafted into my heart. It is sure to linger there for days. Thanks to dear Jayakumar. 2) Message from V T Panchapagesan My world memories : As a nonagenarian I too want to share mine. My father died when I was 2 years old. My mother who was 21 having her head tonsured was living in a place not allowed to come out due to village restrictions. I grew up to ten years in a village not knowing what life was. Then my godfather uncle was responsible for me to study up to SSLC and he too died suddenly leaving us. I was 18 but wanted to come up well but knew not the way. How I grew and studied was a mystery with my mother. My inner strength/traits showed me the way. I took my mother and showed her all the 12 Jyothir Lingams Which I consider even now unthinkable. Then I had my good life partner who lived with me just 12 years Leaving three siblings, 9, 5, 1 years. How they grew, well educated and settled is some thing scintillating. How I went to various holy places in India, Europe and USA, Gulf countries, etc was also something amazing, even now fresh in my memory. How I had contacted great spiritual leaders globally was still unthinkable. Today after discharging all my social obligations I am enjoying my SOLITUDE IS SOMETHING UNKNOWN BUT A REALITY FOR 12 years. It may be my own strength coming to the end accepting my weaknesses admitting God's help with full potential with contentment and satisfaction. 👌🌹😁 Be Well, V. T.

I like to know as to whether our economy will revive and become five trillion economy and catch up with Germany or Japan in the foreseeable future. (Sure. We are on the growth path. We need not compare. We have other milestones like poverty alleviation, better living conditions for all, 100 percent literacy and so on to achieve. Our economy's real networth is much higher than the revealed figures. So, any day we can become double today's size by mainstreaming our hidden wealth 🙏-M G Warrier) B Babusenan's Column Knowledge priorities Dr. Watson, the Boswell of Sherlock Holmes, who needs no introduction at all, was initially not much impressed with the latter's range of knowledge. 'His ignorance was as remarkable as his knowledge' was his overall assessment. While on subjects like chemistry, anatomy and sensational matters his knowledge was deep and profound, on literature, philosophy, astronomy and politics it was abysmally poor. Once when the doctor mentioned Carlyle's name, Holmes asked who he was. The former seized on that opportunity to tell him this sad fact. He was astonished to find that his friend knew next to nothing about the solar system and the Copernican theory. The doctor then explained both as best as he could. When he finished, Holmes laughingly said : "Now that I do know it, I shall do my best to forget it." For him, the storage space for knowledge was inelastic and it was of the highest importance that useless knowledge should not be allowed to elbow out useful ones. You say that "If we went round the moon, it would not make a pennyworth of difference to me or to my work. " C Collage Essay : Vathsala Jayaraman Chennai Philosophy & Spirituality Shri Warrier's concluding part of spirituality and philosophy dragged my thoughts to a book in Tamil which I read years back. Religion is in charge of the "to do". Spirituality is in charge of the "to BE".!! I happened to read another text in Tamil on the subject recently. I share the thoughts of the author. A rough translation of what I read is produced hereunder. What is spirituality? Is continuous character development spiritual unless applied in real life to experience it? A Simple definition of spirituality says, "Spirituality is more of an individual practice and has to do with having a sense of peace and purpose. It also relates to the process of developing beliefs around the meaning of life and connection with others". Character development is important but unless it is applied in real life to gain experience, the effort will be futile. The purpose of this article is it to look at some of the practical ways to improve our spirituality. A systemic view of actions performed by us and contribution in the world promotes links between sustainability and an awareness of our limited resources. This approach to thought process, action and interaction is being increasingly associated with spirituality because it seeks to contribute to the greater good in the world. It also has the potential to actually increase spiritual value and enhance the company of good people around us. This systemic view of greatest good of the world means that we as spiritually developing individuals will constantly reassess the long view of risks and rewards associated with doing our actions in the long run, including a careful ongoing review of potentially negative and unintended consequences of our actions to the individuals, societies, or the environment. An individual life is an important element of the society around that life. In reality, the society is the macrocosm of the collective values of all the individuals in that society. Respecting values in individual life experiences and learning lessons out of it is an important component of a society. Therefore, it is critical that every life should have respect for other individuals irrespective of their race, color, sexual orientation, ethnic background, etc. There has to be a firm conviction that exclusion of anyone from this learning process is an impediment not only for the individual growth but also overall growth of the society. Increasingly, the societies are seeing the value of the individuals working together in a society toward a commonly held vision. They have a sense that the concepts of love and acceptance within a cultural context of care builds a sense of community that supports the welfare of everyone in the society and brings a great level of happiness and peace. In a way sharing our thoughts and experiences in a group like ours is also 'spirituality' in a sense. Learning and sharing life experiences promote all of us together. This type of principled emphasis includes everyone providing knowledge that help everyone else better understand self and others, develop successful professional and personal relationships and enhance core values and skills. We begin to recognize the impact others have in our respective life and each one of us have on others' lives. Thoughts presented here are building blocks toward exploring a model of spiritual development framework for engaging in a broader conversation. Learning is a life-long exercise and learning from the experiences is the purpose of life. Every word we read and every word we write here makes a difference to me as well as to others around me and hence communication should be with a purpose to learn and grow together. The Eastern civilization taught us to put others before us as no individual growth will be as valuable as collective growth of the society whereas the Western civilization taught us to put ourselves first and do well and that kind of thought would make everyone excel making the world the better place to live. So at some point in time, Eastern civilization should learn a leaf out of the Western civilization and vice versa. Spirituality is not the prerogative of neither the sages residing in jungles nor that of Ramanas and Arbindos. It is well within our day to day life and very much the same as character development. Vathsala Jayaraman D Appreciation by Sitendra Kumar Dear Shri Warrier, You have given lot of food for thought on Philosophy and Spirituality. You are right in saying that' All of us are born into families with no option to choose geography, religion or economic status. What happens subsequently is called life. Once this is realised pursuit of self-realization or meaning of life becomes much easier'. Realisation of self is a constant process, a path to self discovery. If we demonstratively do anything wrong, our self i.e. atman acting as our Ombudsman, deplores our action and goads us to desist from that particular wrong action. Resist and Desist becomes our credo against doing patently wrong things if our atman is sufficiently developed. You have remarked ,' Strong families share a belief in something greater than themselves'. Jimmy Carter used to emphasise a lot on this. As President of US, he always propagated the benefits of a strong and united family and himself observed all its tenets in his personal life. From your Collage, first time I learnt about the disciplines and sub disciplines of Philosophy. I'm deeply moved by Shri Jayakumar's poem (saved in my personal folder) whose last lines are To add commentaries on songs and filmstars Who makes us all SitAndWonder what a Kumar* Shri Jayakumar as a poet appears akin to William Wordsworth. Regards, Sitendra Kumar E Poetry : Victorian Era https://www.poetryfoundation.org/collections/153447/an-introduction-to-the-victorian-era Victorian poetry’s most distinctive qualities may stem, paradoxically, from its proximity to other genres and forms: theater, fiction, music, and art, all of them poetry’s in a fully stocked cultural marketplace. Asking in the 1833 essay “What Is Poetry?” the philosopher John Stuart Mill responded with terms pilfered from drama: “Poetry is feeling, confessing itself to itself, in moments of solitude. … All poetry is of the nature of soliloquy.” In the era’s most heralded poetic innovation, Alfred, Lord Tennyson and Robert Browning hybridized drama, fiction, and lyric into the dramatic monologue form: a poet impersonates a fictional or historical character and addresses a silent audience without any narrative framing or guidance. Visually minded poets—including the poet-painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the writer-designer William Morris, both associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood—pushed poetry toward the picturesque, relishing pictorial detail and painterly embellishments. Tennyson, Algernon Charles Swinburne, and Gerard Manley Hopkins wrote lyrically lush poems that aspired toward music, delighting in mesmerizing meters, (such as Hopkins’s invention, sprung rhythm) and virtuosic braids of alliteration and rhyme.
