Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Sunday, March 3, 2024 International Women's Day, 2024 https://www.mainstreamweekly.net/article14366.html Good Morning Happy Birthday to all readers having Birthday during this week. Ayurarogyasaukhyam and Best Wishes to all. Post-retirement life : In 1992, I picked up a handbook "The Complete Retirement Guide" by Kerry Boyne from Mattunga roadside.

My classmate Siya looked at me, indicating with her eyes to please answer it. Siya had lost her father that early morning. We had just finished the last rites and returned with that feeling of emptiness of life which prevails at such moments.

Friends After working for a year with Employees Provident Fund Organisation for one year and with AG's Officee Thiruvananthapuram for forty months I joined RBI in the same city on January 15, 1968.
