Pension issues–Those in the harness of championing the cause deserve laurels:


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 managementKRSaini 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.pensioner 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. 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. 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”.

A world without joints?

Shakespear

It’s a mirage in itself as to what the world as a whole is and what is the purpose which it stands for. Is there some God who created it or it just emerged at  its own with or without any massive volcanic eruptions devastatingly colluding with one another and the resultant mass was called the world. But authenticity part on this version is still sans an acceptable truth. What historians and anthropologists talk on the subject is all guess based. The role of the mythologists too has worsened the confusion in a form worse confounded.

We can of course talk about the real world of which we are the inhabitants, we can visibly see it, we can use it, we can share our views with one another candidly and frankly, and above all we can secure some little space somewhere as our own with plenty of ifs and buts to add or subtract from any where to any where. If it suits Jigar Moradabadi, an eminent Urdu poet he fumes and frowns saying “…na jaane kidhar se na jaane kidhar ko, azal se abad tak baha jaa raha hoon…”. As if it was not enough, Shakespeare finds the world as a whole suffering from loopholes and his Hamlet proclaims that he is the one born to set these disorders fixed. Hamlet cries with a shriek “The world is without joints and I am born to set it right”. The world continues the way it suits it and the critics have no pause against whatever they could at the maximum, say beyond a limit. We may have to keep ourselves contended that there are actually two worlds –one that we could never see and the other one that we could see with snags at every step.

Technocrati:

 

                

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.

QUESTION OF RECOGNITION:


Like every body wants every thing in the world they equally aspire, nay hanker, for an elevated recognition irrespective of the fact whether or not they are able to retain even their zero level. Why such fancies and of what advantages except a meaningless exposure for self?. A great Ram Leela used to take place in my Village at a large scale with a big fun fare and jointly with other boys I too used to be there all the days Ram Leela continued. It was all so interesting

The committee organised Raj Darbar with Raja Ram himself present there to listen to the grievances of the people. One Pandit ji appeared (see picture) and  after obeisance started narrating his problem like ‘I am fully conversant in several of the almost all the alphabets of Devnagari script and despite thatimages (17)no body calls me pandi ji’. Bhagwan Ram told him ‘don’t worry Pandit ji, go to the boys and when they look at  you tell them loudly ‘Look boys, don’t call me pandit ji, and they would instantly start calling you ‘’pandit ji, pandit ji, pandit ji”. The trick worked and the boys in the crowd of the venue itself continued repeating the spree till late in the mid night. This one is just a frugal instance but the very propensity of men and women to secure more, rather much more, recognition in different modes bordering a lusty hanker is a menace beyond repairs.

Why follow the Truth?

A truth at times is tobe surrendered when it comes to saving a life.

Why the preachers are never tired of stressing that truth is to be followed and strictly adhered to in whatever be the situation and howsoever odd be the circumstances. They also lay much emphasis on both the truths -Absolute and Relative. They quote Maharaj Yudhishthhir,  the eldest of the five Pandavas from Mahabharat who while travelling to Swarg (Paradise) on foot through Himalayas lost one of the leg thumbs -the reason being that he spoke a lie during Mahabharat war although this is not actually correct as it was only brutally twisted. The whole theory is a sort of concoction as any truth resulting into killing of some one results into hatya dosh and it can’t be acceptable. Left to me I would prefer to speak a thousand lies if they are capable of saving some lives or are helpful to them in some way or the other. A lie that saves is far better a thousand times than a truth that kills.

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?

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.
