Annamaya - Pada sarasi

My diary - 27 th January 2011

I am sorry, I could not be as fast, as I used to be in solving the problems quoted by you, like missing files, responding to your mails etc for the past two months.

The reasons for the same are two main issues.

1. The music season started and was regularly going to programmes, and some days even to two programmes in a day. This has eaten away most of my spare time and I could not attend to your queries and carry out the corrections.

2. I had some personal commitments which were taking most of my time of the day and I could not even come near to my laptop.

I thought I will make up the loss from 15th of January, but some more problems cropped up and I will be going away to Bombay to attend two important events of my relatives and so I may not be able to find much time for this job.

I am confident, once I come back from Bombay by 12th February, I will be able to find more time and will be able to justify your demands.

Please bear with me until then.

With greetings and appreciation for your patience.

...that "Why is this happening?" is the most useless
question in the Universe.

The only really profitable question is, "What?" As in,
"What do I choose now?" This question empowers.
The "why" question simply perplexes, and rarely
satisfies even when it gets a good answer.

So don't try to "figure it out." Stop it. Just focus on
what you now wish to create. Keep moving forward.
There's nothing behind you that can possibly serve
you better than your highest thoughts about tomorrow.

....that being "right" has nothing to do with it.

The idea that you call "right" is the idea that someone
else calls "wrong." The solution that you call "perfect"
is the solution that another calls "unworkable." The
position that you feel is unassailable is the very
position that others assail.

What will solve all of this? Not attack, that's for sure.
And not defense, either. So what is left? Simple human
love. The kind of love that says, "It doesn't matter who
is right or wrong. It only matters that you are not hurt.
And that we both can benefit. All true benefits are mutual."

Listen to your hunches, pay attention to your intuition,
do not dismiss your random thoughts, inspirations or

Honor your Hints from Heaven. They could be giving
you the best advice you ever had.

TRUE INCIDENT by Ranjani - Useful for people traveling in Chennai buses!! 

True Incident happened for a lady who is a commuter in Chennai MTC!!

" I m working in Chennai One(Thoraipakkam), Chennai. I usually travelby

Metropolitan Transport Corporation(MTC) bus, from jain college stop (Which

is near to my office) to tidel park and from Tidel park I will catch train,

to home. MTC bus coming from kelambakkam(19B,21H) mostly wont stop in 

tidel park in early days. So I usually prefer to get into T51 bus, which will

stop in tidel park stop. After some time 19B started stopping in tidel park


Today while returning from office at around 8.30 pm, I was in a hurry to

catch my 9.28 pm train at Tidel park. I got up a bus(19B) in Jain College

at around 8.45 pm, and asked the conductor to give a ticket for tidel park

stop. He said, the bus wont stop there, and he asked me to get down at

signal if it stops there or else get down at stop next to tidel park. I was

argugingwith him that I am going daily with the same bus and get down in

the tidel park stop. But he kept on saying the same thing.. I got

irritated with conductor response. Suddenly I remembered a complaint phone

no.(9884301013) I read in one bus sometime back and noted down in my

mobile. I called that no. and said about the incident that conductor is not

stopping in the usual stop.

The MTC representative (person at the other end) asked me to give the phone

to the conductor. The conductor was not interested to talking with his

official. The MTC rep. asked me the bus registration no. He enquired where

is the bus at that time and I said it is in Kandhanchavadi. The MTC rep

said he will come in the line and talk to them. I was curious how he will

come and catch the bus.

After few mins. the wireless transmeter(to track the bus), near the driver

in the bus started shouting... Driver stop the bus. Driver stop the bus in

the left side of the road. Driver was not sure what is happening may be his

first experience, for others(including me) it is the real first

experience. The driver stopped the bus and started listening to the

transmeter. The MTC rep. enquired why the bus is not stopping in tidel park

stop. The driver said he stops in tidel park stop and in the previous trip

also he has done. The rep. asked him then why the conductor is saying like

that. He asked the conductor what is the issue. The conductor was

speechless. The driver somehow managed the situation and supported the

conductor by saying that the conductor was new to this route. The driver

asked excuse for the incident and said he will stop in the Tidel Park stop

The MTC rep. said he wanted to talk the passenger who called him. I went

near the transmeter and spoke to the MTC rep. He said sorry for the

incident happened and asked sorry on behalf of MTC. Everyone in the bus

were surprised of things happening. I came back to my seat and I was so

embarrassed as all were looking at me. Few passengers asked me what is the

number, and whom I called. They also took the number. The bus stopped in

Tidel Park stop then. After getting down I called the MTC rep. and said the bus

stopped in the stopping.

It was a nice experience for me and others who traveled in the bus,

including driver and conductor and I was very surprised after this incident.

Yes, nowadays good things are happening in government sector also and

technology is used properly."

Annamaya - Pada Kalasi

India Should leverage the Gold with the households

India is one of the largest buyers of gold in the world. More than 90 per cent of this is for jewellery purposes and not for Industrial purposes. Table 1 gives the purchase of gold for jewellery by different countries in the last few years. In the past, Indian demand was nearly 30 per cent of global consumption. Recently, the attraction of smuggling has come down due to liberalized import policy. Incidentally, domestic production of gold is very negligible, running into a few tonnes.
The purchases made in Middle East is also mostly by people of Indian origin and to that extent the demand by “Indians” is much larger. What is bought in Gulf states this year by the NRIs (non-resident Indians) will reach here may be in a year or so. At an average price of, say, Rs20, 000 for ten grams, we can estimate that for 1000 tonnes nearly Rs.2 Lakh crore has been spent in buying gold last year by Indian households, which is much larger than the aggregate capital raised from the stock market.
The purchase of Gold by households is not treated as savings in our statistics. It is treated, as consumption by households which are curious as households treat purchase of gold as “investments” whatever the economists in government may think. That the Gold is in private hands is important to note and since it is not with government it is productive. It is interesting to note that the demand has been around 1000 tonnes in the last two years and of this 25 percent is for Bar/coin investment.
But why do households invest in gold?
It is not for the return but for security. Gold is the major social security for large number of Indian households which do not have any social security at all. Kindly observe that nearly 90 percent of India is self-employed. The problem is more acute for the wives of these self-employed, as they do not have any independent access to income or savings. Even if they work, it is used for current consumption. In the poorer segments, a good portion of the income of the man could be used for drinking, gambling, etc., and hence not much left at old age.
The joint family system is breaking down and so the traditional support models are getting weakened. Under the circumstances, it is but natural that the Indian woman would like to own some assets which are useful in old age, or in case of any other eventuality. Real-estate is relatively costly, not divisible and not portable. Gold ornaments are portable and divisible. A chain can be converted into two bangles and also one can have smallest nose ring or ear stud unlike land.
 Transfer of ownership is also very easy. In the case of gold ornaments one can say that possession is ownership. In other words, if a mother removes her chain and gives it to her daughter then it belongs to the latter by tradition. One can get loan against gold by pledging it with a moneylender any time of the day or night, seven days of the week. The millions of moneylenders are actually the ATM (All Time Money) of our country, as they act as money vendors with a personal touch too. In other words gold represents the most liquid form of asset in India. One can also say that gold is the most politically correct metal, which can be owned. In traditional Indian families, sometimes, shares or fixed deposits are disposed without the knowledge of the housewife. But gold is always sold with the concurrence of the housewife. Of course, if it is on her body then it cannot be disposed off without her knowledge.
The so-called superstition pertaining to not removing the Mangal Sutra till the death of the husband is an insurance protection to the woman against rapacious relatives and children. It is assumed that the gold ornaments will work as social security for her in case of major emergency or after the death of the head of the household. The Bollywood blockbusters of yesteryear would invariably have a scene where the heroine removes her bangles or chain to be pledged for the benefit of her ailing husband and it did reflect the ground reality better than the views of experts. Hence, gold is the most liquid, portable, easy to transfer, act as social security and insurance for the middle- and low-income group women.
The Total Stock of Gold is estimated at 18,000-40,000 tonnes by different experts which may be an underestimate particularly after the Trivandrum temple vaults got opened up. That temple alone supposed to hold more than half a billion worth of Gold/Emeralds /Rubies etc
As the largest buyer of this metal in the world, India should play an active role in the international market and leverage our position to shape policies pertaining to gold. Any large buyer of a commodity, say, oil or coffee or zinc or maize wants to, and does, have a say in the accelerated disposal of that commodity in the world market. What does India do? Nothing. Is our government, then, not concerned about the welfare of the people but only about some ideological shibboleth? Why is it so? It is because there is a considerable dis-connect between the government and the middle-class.
The planners and policy-makers are either the socialist type or globalizing metropolitan elites. The Nehruvian socialist experts feel that the middle-class or petite bourgeois is naive to invest in unproductive assets instead of joining the working class in the struggle to get social security for all. This did not happen and even the proletariat opted to buy gold having little faith in the government (of any variety) providing any security at old age.
The globalizing metropolitan elites feel that the middle-class is foolish in investing in gold since the “experts like them” have defined it to be un-productive. They would rather have the middle class invest in share markets and burn their hands and legs. They are concerned about reforming the government pension system which is under severe strain as both the Central and State governments are broke. In such a situation, the most entrepreneurial and hard working, self-employed groups are facing a huge challenge to protect their future. Their position is that of a nut caught in the nutcracker with the socialists and globalisers acting as the two arms.
It is not the Indian woman who is naive or foolish, but the government which is insensitive and ignorant to the issue of leveraging on our strength.
In the context of `Digital Cash’ becoming more active, the number of transactions may rise to trillions and the number of trans-border entities issuing them will also increase. This would be more so with increased outsourcing activities. Since “Digi-Cash” does not have any sovereign guarantee, the role of gold as a medium of exchange and as an underlying standard will increase. As the monetary transactions in the net-based world expand, the concern for the underlying lack of “Sovereign Guarantee” should be highlighted. In the context of a possible death of euro and the decline of the US Dollar, this may not be very difficult to visualize. Along with this, a campaign should be launched by India to bring gold as standard of security (if not as a medium of exchange) and this may enormously help the millions of self-employed in India who own this asset and who have to take care of themselves in the coming decades.
India should also create mechanisms to leverage on the investment category [namely Bars/Coins] of the Gold purchases by middle class in the last few years. Innovative mechanisms can be created by government of India to facilitate this gold to be invested with banks and earn some nominal interest rates so that Government can show large stock of gold in banks to facilitate the stabilization of rupee value. Actually much of these coins and bars are already kept in bank lockers and locker fee is paid by the middle-class.
But in order to initiate any such steps Government of India should come out of its Nehruvian mindset and stop taking advice from Globalizers who will sell all these Gold along with our housewives to Global corporations. India should co-opt China in this global campaign to make Gold a unit of security when sovereign guarantees are not taken seriously.
One thing should be clear. Gold is brought by the women of the country. They are smart and shrewd- they will not do anything which do not make economic sense even though most economists do not have any sense pertaining to Indian realities.

.....that the most dramatic conflicts are perhaps, those
that take place not between men but between a man
and himself.

Author Mark Moustakas said that, and he was right.
If we can win the struggle within -- the struggle that
Muslims call jihad -- we can win this human race.

What are you battling with right now? What unwanted
habit? What undesireable behavior? What old pattern?
Claim victory over these, and your entire life can change.
