There was a time when the choice of readers was confined to books alone and of course to news papers later and then icame blogs when computers emerged as a revolution in the current era with a magic wand to sort out a solution to any conceivable thought in the field of messaging followed by emergence of blogging as a great communicational tool. My association with the computers goes back to mid 1960s and with active blogging in the Ist decade of the current century. My fancy for it stretched to five blogs at a time daily on varying subjects mainly inclusive of human relation (HR). It was too tedious a job but I was able to manage all of them with requisite response from the readers all over the world. Currently my concentration is confined to two blogs only and that too with certain unavoidable gaps in their frequency of release from time to time. Readership of my blog ‘Avenues’ stands at present at close to 3 lakhs globally.
The strength of a blog is determined through it’s readers who form the backbone of it. This post is in no way a pointer to the readers and is simply aimed at sharing with them on what I have been experiencing in the field. They make a reference of some problem at their end seeking my advice and in case the subject is similar to the ones raised by several others, I release a composite post exclusively for the topic so referred. What actually follows is that several of them continue the same thing again and again without going through the relative post. There are many who simply ask ‘What happened’?, ‘Any development’?, ‘Please reply’, ‘Help me’, ‘Waiting for your answer’, etc. Such questions are without mentioning any head and tail of it in the absence of which it is just impossible to answer their queries leading them to conclude that I didn’t care for their question. Pension issue is a burning problem in State Bank of India in which context a case is pending with Delhi High Court and whatever is the progress or otherwise is reported on a specific Page in this blog NewsPage routinely by an exponent with scholarly pursuit on pension issues, KR Saini, apprising the readers of the latest update but many of them prefer to shoot a separate query like ‘What is the development?’ instead of bothering to refer to the NewsPage which tendency indicates that they only take the issue cursorily. Those who really feel serious about the dispute are supposed to go to the right site on the blog appreciating the efforts of the author who has embedded his heart and soul to the cause of the pensioners with his indefatigable spirits. It is also the need on the part of the readers/pensioners to associate themselves with whatever are the issues in a committed measure and not just an onlooker. Marching forward jointly is always likely to elicit the desired outcome.
