Warrier's Collage on Sunday May 19, 2024

Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Sunday May 19, 2024 Kerala Tourism https://www.keralatourism.org/malabar/theyyam/18 Today's Thought* : "Time and good friends are two things that become more valuable as we grow older." *Shared by V Rangarajan Chennai Good Morning Happy Birthday to all having Birthday during the week ending Saturday May 25, 2024. Ayurarogyasaukhyam and Best Wishes 🙏 Poem 'Whose Land?' quoted on page 160 of 'Mistaken Identity'*, a 1988 novel by Nayantara Sahgal is by Mohammed Iqbal, translated from the Urdu by Kuldip Akhtar. "You claiming it, I ask : Early morning today (Saturday, May 18), stumbled upon this book which was lying idle in the collection of books belonging to my daughter Reshmy. Was random-scanning through the pages of the book, which I thought is relevant in the political context of India today. Perhaps I may come back after reading some pages. Last Century, so much of research preceded publication of books. Today, literature also is becoming something like fast (junk) food which becomes stale, instantly 🙏 Useful suggestion about ITR filing : Suggestion that it's advisable to wait till first week of June 2024 to submit ITR (see attachment) sounds reasonable M G Warrier *Please see Amazon Overview @B below A Current Affairs https://m.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_ViewBulletin.aspx?Id=22520 Excerpts : "According to the distinguished British economist, Angus Maddison, who specialised in the measurement and analysis of economic growth and development, India was the largest economy of the world with the highest share in world GDP during 1 to 1000 AD. Over the next 600 years, India intermittently fell to the second position, but reclaimed the position of the world's largest economy by 1700 AD with a share of 24.4 per cent of world GDP. After that came the colonial rule and a long retrogression. Given the innate strengths I described and the energies and transformation that are driving the nation to overcome its challenges and achieve its aspirational goals, it is possible to imagine India striking out into the next decade with a growth rate of 10 per cent. If this is achieved, India will become the second largest economy in the world not by 2045 as shown earlier, but by 2032 and the largest economy by 2050." B Collage Books Book Review Just A Mercenary : Review By Yerram Raju https://yerramr.com/2024/05/14/book-review-just-a-mercenary/ Brief, but comprehensive review. Unlike other reviews of this book I have come across so far, here there's an effort to give an overview of the content in few sentences which helps lazy readers like me. I received my copy of the book on Wednesday. These days I buy books, glance through and pass on to someone who will read it. This book I ordered to read Subbarao's letter to his mother. Rest of the book being edited by a team and commented before finalization by a galaxy of celebrity bankers and eminent personalities, must have undergone changes. Will read leisurely. But while glancing through, two pages attracted my attention. Pages 422 and 423. Like a quiz master, Subbarao makes us think! II Mistaken Identity By Nayantara Sahgal Mistaken Identity https://amzn.in/d/1yapI8C Book overview On a train journey home to north India after long months of travel abroad, the playboy Bhushan Singh, son of the Raja of Vijaygarh, is arrested and thrown into jail. Charged with treason, Bhushan finds himself in a filthy prison cell surrounded by elderly trade unionists as innocent of any political crime, and a jittery government sees sedition under every stone.As they wait for the trial that never seems to come, Bhushan takes up the role of Scheherazade, enthralling his cell-mates with stories from his colourful past. He tells them of his boyhood affair with a beautiful Muslim girl that sparked off two murderous riots and led to his banishment abroad. He tells them of his life in the America of the Roaring twenties, of basking beside a turquoise swimming pool, learning the Turkey Trot and turning down the chance of a career as a movie star. Obsessed with his childhood love, unable to make any plans for his life except to find her again, Bhushan returns to India to become an exile nearer home in Mumbai. He becomes the friend and lover of Syllvia, a vibrant and modern Parsi girl, but even her energy and devotion are not enough to heal his wound. As news of violent world events penetrates the prison wall - civil was in Turkey, the rise of Mussoloni, Gandhi's salt March, mass arrests, the death of hunger-strikers in Lahore - Bhushan reaches the climax of his story: the monstrous trick he discovers fate has played on him, and the crime he can never forget. Full of mystery and gentle humour, Mistaken Identity is a story of love and obsession that brilliantly summons up the turmoil of India in the twilight years of empire. C Collage Psychology Self actualization https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/theyre-not-coming/202405/self-actualization-the-milestone-you-missed Self-actualization happens when a human being reaches the height of his or her potential. Current research suggests the number of the self-actualized is higher than recently thought. Self-actualized people have a way to self-soothe and ground themselves to avoid emotional derailments.
