Human relations in State Bank of India–Serving unions to come out with cudgels:


State BankShort Post:

Not very long ago there was a time when State Bank of India had a top rank reputation on industrial relations front and now it is just the reverse with the result that the workforce both in service and outside as retiree pensioners are forced to virtually lick the dust disgusted and frustrated. Another major issue is that of compassionate appointment. In fact it was very much obtaining in State Bank of India for several decades unless it was unilaterally withdrawn by the bank in most callous an order. Unfortunately this is an area which should have been taken up with a bigger role to restore this welfare area. Pensioners Unions and Federations say they are trying their best but the results show that there is nothing tangible in the matter as yet. The concerned aggrieved persons are just groaning helplessly. The situation demands that the serving unions and federations extend their helping hand with real militancy and that may surely take care of the malady.

Pension issues in SBI–spree of deferments continues:

K.R.SAINI

The above is the message from  K R Saini about the development of the pension issue pending with Delhi High Court. Whatever could be the reasons, justifiable or otherwise, but the visible position on the surface is that the case used to be deferred abnormally in the past and is lurking on the same lines even after a new bench was formed. This is for the information of the retirees/pensioners. The readers have no option but to wait, I don’t say till eternity.

They kill us for their sports!

Court

 

As flies to wanton the boys

So are we to Gods

They kill us

For their sports

It was not for nothing that Shakespeare penned the above lines –he in fact gave a clear message that those who are saddling the power do suffer from the propensity of harming others –be they the common people, workforce or any group of persons engaged in various tasks, needless to say that they include the workforce in Banking Industry in the country and are now the retirees besides a big number of them in the pipeline. The topic warrants a big narrative in the matter but is not considered relevant at the moment. What is more important is the attitude of the Government of India and bully bankers who are not prepared to lend their ears to hear their grievances, nay agonies, even after an abnormal lapse of time. Surprisingly the Law Courts too belong to the same citadel. Long back the Supreme Court of India ordered consolidation of numerous cases and they asked them to clinch the employees/pensioners’ grievances peremptorily. Nothing tangible occurred, the time frame allotted for the purpose was just ignored with the petition roving from Bench to Bench. New Bench with different judges was formed giving it the color of priority by fixing the hearing on day today basis. Now the tremendous shock that is let loose is to the effect that the next hearing is fixed at the end of 1st week of November’2016. Historically people in the workforce have to remind themselves of Britishers ruling India when their forefathers were recognised just as their subjects (Ghulaams) and nothing beyond that.

Avenues–Change in blog theme:

A short post:

I have a deep fancy for blog themes and trying one after the other never knows an end. Technically this one has several improvements but my mind still continues hovering for a better one. I don’t know when such anxiety gets quenched. Readers liking is my primary concern and if they feel satisfied with it every thing is okay; if not, I may have to go for another one till such time I am able to lay my hands at the one that altogether matches my readers choice. I solicit their reaction.

 

 

“Love is great, love is Divine”–an addendum:


images (10)This follows it’s very predecessor post nearly in the same name as an addendum being a comment as from R.S. Pandey, a versatile writer. It’s not confined to a mere comment but has fully assumed the characteristic of a full fledged write-up dealing with the relative theme philosophically like Annie Besant did while writing on Mira Bai. It is reproduced here:


Sir, the subject of the post – Love – has been fiercely discussed and debated from the times immemorial. The worldly as well as divine references to love have been made by the people, yet even to date, it remains one of the most confusing and misunderstood(?) term. The bonding between two creatures with contrasting characters as shown in the post which may be love, probably is the feeling of absence of fear and insecurity which might have got generated by their habitation in an atmosphere where they are cared as pets sans any violence. The feeling of mercy and compassion are there in even cruel and omnivorous beings, when it comes to taking care of their kids. The love which, in general parlance, is often equated with longing of varying nature, depending upon the context and relation, is considered of a mean nature when related to worldly relations but when related to a deity or God for that matter is considered a pious one. This piousness or otherwise of love, although being a relative phenomenon, is the real cause of confusion. When a term when associated with the so called divine is good, how it becomes bad when associated with worldly relations? After all, relations are but result of the creation of the He. The desire, both for worldly as well as divine attainments (even for sake of Moksha) are desires; how they can be classified along different parameters for which essentially the concerned person may or may not be responsible (often not)?

Sir, may be I have dared to tread in an area of which I have no insight and have no qualification or ability at all. But, as it seems to me, these are very perplexing ideas and notions which are not discussed and debated in public domain. The so called gurus try to have their own view point digested with no questions from other side. Raising questions is taken as being misbeliever or the one with no respect for gurus (the preachers who claim to be able and learned ones).

If this coincidence can give some solution to my problem, I shall be greatly obliged, although already and always so. However, seeking forgiveness for misadventure. Regards.


The lids that overflow with tears:


sadimages (5)Who bothers for them? Possibly none. They are the abandoned lot in the whole democracy with none around to offer them some succor allowing them to lead a normal life like others do in the country. The hardships are caused to them by none others but the Government of India itself and Banking Industry mainly including State Bank of India. I am referring to the plights of the retirees from giant Bank of the country State Bank where this issue is pending for the last two decades with the result that the pensioners are hankering for some relief as their pension amount is too low incapable of necessary sustentation of self and their family. The problem continues hovering around Government of India, the courts including Supreme Court and State Bank. Parliament of the country is all out preparing itself to raise the monthly emoluments of the so called less paid Members of the Parliament. The tearful face and a visibly a depressed look of the aggrieved man both can well be seen on the two pictures in the beginning of this post. These pictures are the real ones telling the whole world what could be the amount of their sufferings. Besides pension issue, the issue of compassionate appointment which was there in State Bank was abruptly withdrawn without any reason or rhyme at the end of the last century. Why such an onslaught let loose terribly against the bank employees. Why political leaders are seen stressing their throat boasting at the top of their voice that ‘ see how best we are doing for the development and welfare of the people’. Is it that pensioners of State Bank of India and the aggrieved ones on account of their bread earner’s death can’t claim their rights as a citizen of the country?. They only cry and weep in the absence of any relief from any side. Compassionate appointment is the dire need of the first order but the issue is callously side tracked. Our question to the Government of India is whether they aim at seeing the retirees particularly those in the wrong side of their age gasping to death. Look ye Government of India and top executives of State Bank, you have no right to gamble with the life of SBI pensioners and the aggrieved claimants for compassionate appoints. The workforce involved has strength enough to fight a do or die battle and you are not allowed to behave yourself the way you are doing.
