Red in tooth and claw–It’s May Day today!

It is in fact too cosy and comfortable a life for trade union leaders with hardly any performance but one has not to forget that on this very first day of May the four leaders in America were hanged to death for simply demanding fixed working hours in different establishments in the country and it

was for this crime that four leaders were hanged not only at the behest of different managements but as a clear cut decision as from the Government then in the saddle. I see there are greetings exchanged on the occasion but in actual terms it’s a day of mourning. Why greetings? This is the day to be solemnly remembered respectfully by all the workers of the world, more so by different leaderships as a great pointer for them. Let us bow down in the name of those who sacrificed their life for the cause of the workers all over the globe praying for the peace to the great souls.

Medicos, nay the parasites?

They as a community are virtually a blot on the society

images-20Call them by any name they are the ones not to mend their ways and modus operandi extracting blood of their patients to the heinous most extent fattening their own pockets with huge money. No kind of ethics applies to them nor even the medical guidelines issued by the Government of India. I wonder very often as to what they do with this much money and how it is that they don’t bother against the several curbs and checks imposed on them by different Governmental agencies. All this looks like a caucus they have formed for themselves to jointly cheat the consumer patients. They earn enormously enough to acquire an easy capability to build up their own hospitals/ nursing homes where they work as free stylers looting the patients on their own will and fancy. This sort of total scandalism on their part is to loot the people, some of them very poor patients. What is peremptorily warranted is to form some mechanism that can apply a sound checkup to nab them red handed, sternly punish them to let the public know who they really are -angelic relief providers to the patients or their blood suckers.

The price of leading a mission:


Yeh, Toba, how tortuous it is to lead a mission on some issue or the other passing through less bouquets and images (17)more bricks coupled with unending sequence of tortures culminating in to death by hanging. This is what happened in America where August Spice, a leading union leader along with his 3 prominent associates were hanged for the reason that they raised demand for fixed working hours as eight. This images (18)is a big story and the full details are covered in my forthcoming book ‘Beyond the barriers’.Seconds before August Spice was hanged he said “a day will come where our silence will be more louder than our words”. Please read this post in conjunction with an earlier one dated 31st October’2016 in this very blog.


Bad money drives good money out of circulation:


A short post:

Be it Malthusian theory in economics or any other theory else where they hardly get erased from the public memory, more so in the case of political leaders irrespective of as to which party they belong to. Isn’t it damn easy to go by imitations? But quality lies with the fine tuning the respective masters can afford to manage. Modi, the Prime Minister, is known well for doing necessary home work before jumping to the fray on any front. One can hardly draw an idea like the monetary restrictions coupled with other measures already spelt out by the Prime Minister but it looks like an action taken too much in a hurry. To check black money, the answer is not this as there are ample administrative measures available as pertinent option. This gives a chance to opposition to gherao the Prime Minister calling him names. They are already voicing loud that this is a weak action and it lacks a matured statesmanship and public as a whole would have to suffer in many ways.


Why ill treat the workforce?

Please take a reference of the post ‘You too owe them your blood’ on this blog. It bears a comment by K.V. Lakshmanan with the weight lurking to an adverse tilt but the narrative being quite meaningful it is healthful from a positive analysis point of view which is important to elicit a result oriented outcome. It is for this reason that the comment in question is being reproduced below verbatim providing a sound approach to the issue. We are thankful to him. The subject relates to fundamental aspects of Trade Union movement, hence it has to be dealt with adhering to no bias approach:

K.V.Lakshmanan commented on You too owe them your blood:

As a part of any trade union you are a successor to those who shed their blood in virtual terms to secure the very basic …

This situation arose because,in banking industry, the trade union movement started developing on the wrong direction in early 1970s.
Instead of protecting the employees from the Bank management for victimisation,they encouraged rowdyism in banks,and protected those who indulged in rowdyism and goondaism.Organaisational elections fought on caste,and unethical basis.The officers were harassed by union people.Then came officers association,but again the same story.They also no different.They recommended for transfer officers who did not toe with them,harassed honest officers and supported corrupt officers who have fall in line with them.T he officers were compelled to collect donations for association from advance oriented branches.I my self was victimised by staff union for being a banks witness in a assault case of branch manager by a clerk,and as officer I did not join the wrongful demonstration and agitation of officers association ,carried out against honest officers/to protect corrupt officials.The officers association was active only during annual transfer of officers,and on off season to protect dishonest /corrupt officers.
Further cheating of employees/officers started by way of signing the wage revision settlements ,throwing interest of members to achieve their own interest/pecuniary obligations from Bank/GOI as had happened in the case of 7 th bipartite wage settlement.

Now how can we expect a strong trade union?

You too owe them your blood:

As a part of any trade union you are a successor to those who shed their blood in virtual terms to secure the very basic rights you are enjoying now and to keep the legacy as such you too are required to keep the same spirit while combating against the hawks of the management. It was America where 4 leaders of the workforce were hanged to death for the reason that they raised voice on having fixed working hours as against unlimited as was the practice that time. In India too the conditions were the worst with several atrocities. The trade union scenario every where in India is in a limping mode and worst it is in Banking sector. It is time for the trade unions and their leaders to wake up coming out of their deep slumber. A revolution is the dire need.
