Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Thursday, December 21, 2023 New Year (2024) Curtain Raiser MERRY CHRISMAS -Warrier Friends Time flies Enjoy the day M G Warrier A Dignity Dialogue Interview : M G Warrier Dignity Dialogue Editor Huned Contractor interviewed M G Warrier recently. Edited excerpts from the interview has been published in the current issue (January 2024) of Dignity Dialogue. Excerpts : Could you share something about your childhood and parents?

We understood that many things around are out of reach and out of control for us. Uncertainties started scaring us. Someone "wiser" among us who was a management expert used the worst yet management technique and successfully convinced us πŸ™ that the safest and easiest temporary solut

Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Sunday, December 3, 2023 Good Morning Last week, a short trip to Kerala gave reasons to live longer. One, it exposed the irrelevance of individuals.

Sorry." I said : "No reason for feeling bad or sad Padmanabhetta...
