As you all know, KR Saini is a crusader and more so in relation to Pension issues in State Bank of India after he joined us, me and RO Shah from Ahmedabad. Both of us were actually the loners at that time to highlight the pension issues like upgradation of pension payable to the retirees of the Bank and several other anomalies severely affecting the pensioners at every level. It all warranted launching of a massive movement to elicit the needful outcome for the purpose. After he appeared on the scene working day and night toiling hardest possible on the mission, his writings on the pension issues published in our blog ‘Avenues’ with the requisite frequency became a much sought after material for the readers as they were quite meaningfully directed to the core points of the issue. It’s practically he who is exclusively managing the running post of ‘Avenues’ as ‘NewsPage’. We are glad that his indefatigable efforts have made it feasible for the latest news on pension issues to reach the readers immediately on their latest release as from the courts and other related quarters. Now that PPR Upadhyaya, a colossus talent wise, too has joined the movement and all are expecting him to deliver the goods in some tangible shape to the SBI pensioners who are most inquisitively hankering for something worth their satisfaction who have been asking in one voice as to how long the still current acrobatics would continue in a barren order and answer to them is that they are judgment seekers and not the judgment givers. The concerned lot is supposed to realise that the light of smiles would have to emerge some day and their patience coupled with a massive movement would have to pay in tangible terms. Pertinently meaningful as they are, some of the writings of KR Saini in the form of comments and pointers, say 3 in number at the moment in the dates of 31st January and 1st February, need to be thoroughly gone through and they shall reach you shortly as separate posts exclusively. Please do study them to feel updated in real terms preferably by advising your reaction directly to him.
History has it that it is always a few as from the masses who take up the cudgels against some barbaric injustice or the other perpetrating to the roots. Pension issue in State Bank has all along been a mirage and unwanted issue for the Bank’s management and the Government of India as if the aggrieved ones do not belong to the very soil of the country.The Supreme Court of India only the other day point blank turned down the pensioners demand for cent percent DA merger ruthlessly throwing justice element to winds despite potent most arguments put forth by Ramchandra Upadhyaya and also KR Saini. Saini also made a self explicit Statement on the pension issues before Indian Banks Association (IBA) which was laudable enough almost on all anomalies in relation to pension issues. The most indefatigable an endeavour made by a talented pleader with merit like Ramchandra Upadhyaya solidly supported by KR Saini strengthens the case with utmost clarity and there can be no gainsaying accepting the arguments unless seen with contemptuous disdain but this is what is visible on the surface. Pensioners owe a solemn gratitude to the duo. Pensioners in general hanker with a grievance that nothing tangible is coming out but I make an appeal to you all to keep patience and some day you will emerge successful and the light of smiles shall fill again in the lids that overflow with tears.

Comments by KR Saini on the latest developments particularly the ones dated 31st January and 1st February’2017 are pertinently important and they are required to be gone through threadbare and meticulously to arm all the concerneds thoroughly. Your cooperation and support are a dire need at every step. No halt to the Jehaad unless the goal is reached and this is how Vibekanand said “Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached”.
This is small story from the Vedic era describing about a cobbler who wanted to be better placed in his next birth and accordingly prayed at Bhairoghat temple near Dashaswamedh ghat close to the Ganges river. This temple is mythologically known for granting the worshippers the type of birth they wanted when they are born next time. One day the cobbler went to the temple with the resolve to return only after the Deity consents to his wish. He prayed in a sequence asking for a king in his next birth but withdrew it on the thought that king’s life is very risky and his life is always in danger. Like that he made a request to become the king’s Prime Minister but that too he himself turned down on the pretext that every Prime Minister is supposed to be a chamcha to the boss the king. Then he opted for a tiger but that too was dropped by him realising that some day an elephant may crush him to death using his heavy legs and the trunk. Like this he continued requesting for dozens of the choices but was unable to stick to one out of his list. In the end he had no option but to request the Deity after obeisance to allow him to take birth as a cobbler only and it is from this point onwards that the saying “Banda mochi ka mochi” did emerge. Any live being has the same discipline to follow and it is only utterly foolish to hanker for the fancy of different genres.This applies to all live beings uniformly with no discriminations of any kind
Dreaded devils have nothing like a specified place to stay and they could be seen and felt any where mainly including your own brain and heart. Those having faith in Lord Buddha might have gone through the respective literature intensively with his encounters with dare devils and also supernaturals and at a stage he felt so disgusted because of these confrontations that he decided to call it a day to pursuing the Truth, Truth the eternal. Thanks to Sujata, the village girl, who inspired Him to stick to the mission that led him to become ‘the ENLIGHTENED SOUL’. He also became ‘Light of Asia’ in the very name of the book. He was hailed as God incarnate all over the world and his followers are to compulsorily chant ‘Buddham sharnam gachhami’.(O! Lord, I submit to your grace). On return home, he shared all his encounters with devils and dreaded devils with Yashodhara, his wife. His views on them are contained in Paali like this:
“attahi athhno natho kohi natho paro siya”
Mirabai was a sadhavi and much more than that she was an exquisite beauty to which many a royals envied. King Akbar hankered to see her and it was arranged with Taansen as a go between. Both of them made it to reach Mirabai’s temple in her royal palace in disguise and it was at the very first sight of her glittering face that stunned King Akbar and Taansen both like they felt swooning. King Akbar without disclosing her real identity did a pranaam to her and requested with folded hands to give him some aashirvaad to which she responded saying ‘never believe persons in disguise as they are the ones who can cheat you and never share your thoughts with unscrupulous and unsharable characters’.
