One knocks the doors of a court of law normally when there is no other recourse left for him to elicit necessary verdict against an injustice done to him but feels deluded and disheartened when nothing transpires in tangible terms there also with the issue hanging in the balance for an indefinite term of time for years and decades. Where should he go in the absence of any other via media?. Situation is the same be it an individual or a congrigation hankering for justice. He only finds himself left in a lurch sans any cohesion from any quarter. His is actually the stage when people are compelled to revolt that may aggravate to any monsterous extent. “Bhookh insaan ko ghaddar bana deti hai” said Gopal Das ‘Neeraj’.
Notwithstanding the above the empty stomached retiree pensioner and his family are some way or the other to manage essentials to survive despite the lack of the requisite perquisites with too meagure amount they take home by way of too stringent an amount called ‘pension’. They are the lot who toiled hard for nearly 40 years of active service on an average for the welfare of the Bank given a go bye with a paltry sum as pension. Looks just like a hoax. Law suits to remedy the anomaly look like a mockery as instead of any respite they rather overburden the relief seekers. It sounds like nothing but a hoax. Benazeer Bhutto serving her jail term was provided certain poison pots here and there in her cage to provoke her an incentive to consume some poison and die. Is it that the total administrative mechanism in the Government of the country is hell bent to do away with the low paid pensioners some way or the other -one is the aggrieved ones to commit suicide! But it would’nt happen. Unions in State Bank of India have a grand history of fighting for a cause and they would prefer to die fighting never succumbing to any willful delay which amounts to virtually no decision at all in definite terms.
