M G Warrier Some music first https://youtu.be/fwXUbHpax5o Metro Tourism Part II Chennai A Messages/Responses 1) V T Panchapagesan Chennai My early life in Bombay in the year 1981. I was transferred in the year 1981. I did not get accommodation immediately But RBI gave me Rs.3000=00..per month.. I went to a small place in Sindhi Society, In Chembur. That was not to last long. Then I stayed in Servant's room In Prabhadevi Quarters. I was forced to vacate and shifted to Goregoan west. Stayed there for one month only. Then Andheri Transit flat. Afterwards Leased flat in Matunga Near Manmala Tank. Finally Prabhadevi quarters. Then my own flat in Malad East. Sold it for a good price. I cannot forget Bombay in my life When I got upset, it relieved my stress of the situation and turned things around. Not only for me but also for my children. Shaping their future… 👌🌹😄 V T Panchapagesan B In and around Chennai https://traveltriangle.com/blog/tourist-places-near-chennai/ Auroville A township situated in Viluppuram district in Tamil Nadu that is dedicated to peace, spirituality, the divine consciousness and sustainability. People from all walks of life come together to work towards one goal – building this township of peace and harmony that is the brainchild of the Mother of Sri Aurobindo Society, Mirra Alfassa. It literally is Utopia nestled in the jungles that lie 12 km of Pondicherry. They have a wide range of activities and projects that are all related to renewable energy, organic farming and handicrafts production. If you are on a 2 days trip from Chennai, make sure to visit this iconic place.

Forgetting is a bliss : Vathsala Jayaraman Shri Babusenan's reference to Sherlock Holmes reminds me of a quote from Arthur Koestler”the pre requisite of originality is the art of forgetting at the proper time what we know.” On my 80th birth day I received the following message : "Very encouraging scientific message for a Senior Citizen : Researchers say that the slowing down of the brain functioning is not the same as cognitive decline. The human brain works slower in old age," said Dr Michael Ramscar, but only because we have stored more information over time. The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more. Though the message seems to be encouraging at the outset, reality is otherwise. It may not matter if we do not know the facts at all. But dangerous consequences may result if doctors forgetfully give wrong prescription or patients take wrong dosage. Even people who are very good in academics or occupy enviable positions suffer from this malady. Many a time we observe that the private secretaries act as the second brain, or even as the primary brain of the executives, as 'intel inside’ So many factors such as stress, anxiety, too much care or having too many alternatives are said to cause forgetfulness. An interesting observation by some psychiatrists seems to be the role of ‘Mega TV serials' in improving the memory. The subsequent events telecast help them revive the earlier episodes and help in improving the memory. Great seers like Shri Ramana Maharishi had realized the Almighty by forgetting themselves. The essential preaching is "Forget yourself to know God". Find yourself to know God", though seems to be contradictory, is the reality. Our brain has a built in software programming for its efficient working. It acts as winnower constantly evaluating, editing and sorting various information in a hi-fi speed and erases many informations that may not be required at all in future. This continuous sieving process is known as 'forgetting' by the common man. If this does not happen we will be weeping over deaths and brooding over failures that happened long ago. If this theory is correct, accumulation of too much information due to longevity might not be there and we cannot boast ourselves as 'brain-full'. As we think the brain categorizes our thoughts and stores them in various places. It is not that the recent thoughts are stored in topmost layer and vanish with ease. Anyway the message is a consolation that our brains are not damaged at all and it is brimful and it is difficult to come out. If we do some exercises for shaking and sqeezing our brain, all facts will be remembered by us and we can pat ourselves as 'memory kings and queens'. vathsala Jayaraman G Obituary We report the sad demise of renowned environmentalist Dr A Achuthan (89) in Calicut on October 10, 2022. His body was donated to the Medical College fulfilling his wishes. Prayers 🙏-Warrier https://english.mathrubhumi.com/news/kerala/renowned-environmentalist-dr-a-achuthan-passes-away-in-kozhikode-1.7945204
