Large number of peple particularly those belonging to Banking Industry persistently wanted me to write on trade union movement in the industry with particular reference to it’s operation in State Bank of India in the context of my involvement in it. Difficult task it was to sumup my 37 years experience of turmoils,upheavals, intricacies and many a times most tortuous phases with the management/Government of India (in particular during the days of national emergency with Indira Gandhi being the Prime Minister of the country) hell bent upon victimising me on some pretext or the other. All this in a situation when I had no money to run the Union (State Bank of India, All India State Bank of India Staff Federation) and the rest with a challenging task of rejuvenating it to a level where it could needfully afford combatting the onslaughts. Initially I had to borrow small sums from Branch Units and individuals to meet even the cost of postal stamps for the purposes of sending/replying the huge mail received from the Units and others.Virtually there was nothing like a functionally operative office, it was rather a one man establishmen that was me alone. I had to draft and type out the replies to the senders of the mail after which I had to go to the post office cycling the distance to drop the letters. My office session started early in the morning continuing till mid night. This was the time when I had no friends but foes only. Besides management of the then Kanpur Circle of State Bank of India. Besides the management for whom the Union was at that time just an eye sore.,even the employees took the union activities just as a matter of an irritating nuisance. Oviously it was for lack of requisite awareness on their part those days.
