Yes, men are there and so are the mad men too with an erratic character marked by their rotten conduct manifest on the very surface. Calling them a maniac is too soft an attribute as they are the ones much worse. They have yawning gaps in their brain cells with their screws disabled against any logic or a reason. In fact they are the type more compatible with a disdain from all quarters. Emerge as it did from IBA (Indian Banks Association) channels, there was a controversy a few days back whether or not the retiree pensioners are covered with the label of contractual service. Absurd and utter non-sense as if a period of service ranging from three to four decades committedly rendered by workforce was all a waste not reckonable as a contract. The very observation smacks of an inherent feudalistic approach emitting a bad smell. Supreme Court defines pension as a right and not a sort of any ex-gratia at the mercy of the employers. Such a conduct on the part of the bogey representing IBA was deliberate and not a slip of tongue. In fact they are the ones who have the culture of talking rots. Once in the past when I was on the negotiation table with them questioning them to have disregarded the directions of the Government of India to resume talks on wage revision without delay, one of their representatives remarked ‘Look, the government wanted us to talk to you on wage revision and we are talking to you in compliance to their instructions and since they didn’t tell us to finalize the agreement we are not bound to conclude the talks. This is the type they are possessing a typical way of twisting words to suit their convenience. You must be aware of the shoes hurled on the face of certain biggies both in India and abroad and possibly IBA men are inspiring similar behaviour as from the other side. Hell with them.
