Pension issues–A clarion call with calling a spade a spade by KR Saini:


KRSaini

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.

ON LORD BUDDHA:

Buddha

Called ‘Light of Asia’ in a book in the same name. the author gave many attributes and illustration to Lord Buddha, recognised as God incarnate depicting Him as a Divine superior entity. Hailing from India he was and is worshipped more in countries like China and Japan. He himself believed in God or did not has been a matter of controversy for hundreds of centuries till now and his disciples take it like the Lord himself never talked of God. The Bhikshus (a celebrated form of his disciples) too more or less maintain the same view as I took it while talking to some of them at the B.H.U. Temple in Varanasi. You visit there and you find a small scripture in Pali language pasted there reading as: “Attahi attano naathho kohi naathho parosia” (Man is a Master for himself and there is none to guide him).God appears fully sidelined here. There is controversy on his caste also –whether he was a kshatri or some thing else? Some of the talented readers of this blog have written to me a lot quite meaningfully which is a big topic itself and I shall be taking it up later with the help of my readers who have contributed much to this blog. I am already thankful to them for providing me enough of material with a scholarly touch. 

Why the hell one should read me?


thI am a writer writing so much as a journalist knowing no limit and there could hardly be any subject I haven’t touched. For whom? Obviously for sharing sake with the people or say with the like minded people. But how many of them are requisitely serious about their task? Hardly few and far between. There are tricks for every thing and how reading too could be an exception? One of my maternal grandfathers was known well for his interest in books even those in the language not known to him. Once I overheard him advising a visitor that the easy way of finishing a book quickly is to cursorily see the first 2-3 lines of a page and the same number in the bottom. Munshi Premchand was his one of the most favourite authors. Being otherwise a reputed Zamindar what he said was always taken as from Ten Commandments. I as a child then had no guts to ask him whether the reading trick suggested by him applied to a legend like Munshi Premchand’s books too. In my college the Chief Librarian controlling and monitoring the huge library of the college and all had a great regard for him as a very learned person. Any body entering his chamber invariably found him deeply involved in reading some book or the other. Was he really that serious? No, he was really not. He himself shared the secret of it while addressing a gathering. As he disclosed, he said that he was not at all serious but he did the exercise to leave an impression on the visitors particularly the students that one should develop himself to the level of an omnivorous reader. Coming to the readers of a blog, more of them are the result of mobilising them and those doing it at their own are only a limited number. The ideal situation is that the readers have to be committed readers with a scholarly pursuit.

Avenues–Change in blog theme:

A short post:

I have a deep fancy for blog themes and trying one after the other never knows an end. Technically this one has several improvements but my mind still continues hovering for a better one. I don’t know when such anxiety gets quenched. Readers liking is my primary concern and if they feel satisfied with it every thing is okay; if not, I may have to go for another one till such time I am able to lay my hands at the one that altogether matches my readers choice. I solicit their reaction.
