On Yoga

Right from the early days of Vedic era Yoga has been practiced in India and almost every where in the world not only as a ritual but a sacred pursuit. In the current era it has gained much more of a momentum and thanks to Swami Ramdeo who has broadened the very spectrum of it in great dimensions all around the globe. The problem that is reported every now and then is that in several cases it yieldedd no desired results, rather there are informations that many a people fell sick after resorting to this therapy. This is a fallacy on the part of the people concerned that they don’t view it in a correct perspective. Any exercise in the  matter is actually to be done in a disciplined order and if there are digressions the results are bound to be just in the reverse order. This should be better if the practitioners first undersand the Yoga norms with a discipline before they opt for this practice. An elaborate version of such an advice follows separately as a specific post or page. 

A separate post on the topic follows shortly including Suyog Aasan that emerged as my own efforts, the one which is much more useful and result oriented and is sans any tense body posture. Hopefully this may amply suit many a pursuers of this ancient therapy.

Re:  SLP in the matter of 100 per cent DA case in Supreme Court of India on 26.07.2017
The above SLP of United Bank came for hearing on 26.07.2017 before the honourable bench of the Justice Adarsh Goyal and Justice U. Lalit.
2. The arguments were initiated by the petitioner ( United Bank) advocate Shri Dhruv Mehta ( Mittter & Mitter Co.) who submitted  that the matter is identical to the case already decided by division bench of Madras High Court and subsequently confirmed by the same honourable bench in the Supreme Court dismissing SLP of the retirees. Therefor this SLP should also be disposed of accordingly.
3. Thereafter , immediately AIBRF Senior Council, Shri V.K.Bali ( Former Chief Justice of Kerala High Court & Ex- Chairman, CAT) raised the objection and pointed out that the judgement of Kolkata High Court is entirely on different grounds. He further requested the bench to allow him time for placing all relevant facts before the court for its kind consideration The court agreed for it and allowed him time to place the detailed arguments on the next date of hearing fixed on 1st August, 2017 for this purpose..
4. We may inform that AIBRF central office has already constituted special team consisting of the General Secretay, Shri S.C.Jain , Deputy General Secretary, Shri Debesh Bhattachrya , Deputy General Secretary, Shri A.K.Bansal, Organising Secretary, Shri Suresh Sharma and Shri Devender Singh ( Retiree of BOI) to liaison, monitor , provide required documents/information ,formulate strategy and hold periodical meetings with the senior council and his secretariat from time to time, for effective handling considering the importance of the case for large number of membership. This committee is functioning since April, 2017.
The above is the texual version of what transpired in the Court as advised to me by KR Saini on date. What happened is a ritualistic mode of dealings normally in any court without any thing substantive but the very positive angle of the development is that the cycle of cent percent dearness allowance merger is gaining some tangible grounds and let the beneficiary lot nurture some fruitful outcome as highlighted by the General Secretary of AIBRF who are all trying their best in the matter. Whatever are the consequential outcome shall be communicated to the readers in the News Column of this blog whenever I am able to procure the relative informations.

What is there in a Theme?

 

A short post:

It’s like a maniac that I have been changing themes of this blog transgressing from one to another aimed at tracing the one that satiates me in full measure in its getup and and an overall appeal causing a requisite appetite for writings and so on. I wish the frenzy stops now b’fore WordPress team loses their patience. They have been amply accommodating my choice with an open heart till now and hopefully it continues for the days yonder from now. A theme, to my mind, is a source of inspiration like a belle from the crowd with a silky smile studded on me. All the best to myself to successfully combat my growing temptation for newly built up digging up novice ventures.

SBI–An indiscriminate fury let lose by them:

Let us talk of ‘bhookh insaan ko Ghaddar bana deti hai’….., the famous lines of Gopal Das ‘Neeraj’, the renowned poet of the modern era to trace the most intensive pangs of miseries certain blocks of people are tortuously undergoing in our country India –they very much include the ones being the families belonging to the deceased employees from State Bank of India ruthlessly denied as they are the benefit of compassion based appointment in the Bank. The sad irony is that it is quite happening under the very nose of the current incumbent-in-charge as the Chairman of the Bank Arundhati Bhattacharya who happens to be a woman, a woman traditionally applauded for her compassion and kindness in the country since ages. Compassion and kindness, it is said, springs up from their very heart.

Provision of such appointments is very much there called compassionate Appointment Scheme. In practical terms such an informal provision dates back to the days when this Bank was known as Bank of Bengal, one of the three Presidency Banks under the then British rule. It’s history and I need no indepth digging to justify my say. As on date the provisions for such appointments do exist as re-endorsed by the Government of India years back but the Bank has opted for a negative twist to the sheer setback to the members of deceased employee’s family and the relative requests for compassion based appointments are outrightly turned down on a printed proforma always kept handy as a cruel ritual. There is none to bother even the least to honestly peruse the merit part of the individual case with the result that the bereaved family members are forced to starve hankering for some source of sustentation.

By and large several of the management wings suffer from a negative propensity of relishing the plight of their subordinates along with their families irrespective of any reason or rhyme. Possibly a massive revolt is the only answer to such a barbarism.

Embarking to the new Theme virtually my first one on this blog:


icon-wordpress-2x

I have already scribbled about half a dozen+ posts after I switched over to this blog ETERNITY in the first week of the last month with entirely a novel frame and modules provided by the WORDPRESS, a giant sized entity in the field. Great toughies and hard task masters as they are, every thing they do springs up to a level that is superb and so are the blogs and web sites they produce and manage with the excellent service rendered by their team to the customers. Their business conduct is a matter of envy for many in the class. They every inch deserve to be applauded sumptuously and I too as one at the receiving end join their admirers whole heartedly.

What drives me to get engrossed in the jumbo job of acting as a free lancer journalist is a mission directed to the welfare of the poor and the downtrodden with priority to workforce, mainly workforce belonging to Banking industry and those unjudiciously victimised by their employers. My experience of serving them as their head for the last several decades in India and abroad coupled with being Director in the Central Board of State Bank of India for several years is of an advantage to me in pursuing the cause of service to the aggrieved ones in different sectors. Pen is mightier than the sword is the saying and writings/blogging are solemnly adhered to by me as tools to lead me to the pinnacles of achievement serving the masses as a cause, as a mission.

GST–a blessing or a curse?

Government of India does boast the GST bill is directed to boost up the economy of the country in a sizeable measure and that it is aimed at helping the tax payers in an ample manner with a considerable relaxation to them. This is welcome by many on a drum beat and equally condemned by many with opposition parties in the forefront. What is this actually is still difficult to envisage.Sponsored by the Government and unconditionally supported by the ruling party BJP and its followers, there are welcome rallies every where to browbeat the morchas organised by the opposition. Salaried class too has a mixed reaction –some say it is pro workforce and there are some who brand it entirely negative as their leaders hold the same view though they have not yet resorted to any agitation which means they are the ones to reconcile with it. Salaried class in the lower strata have a feel that it is advantageous to them. In fact the entire scheme is drawn with relaxation to them in mind obviously the apparent vote bank as they are. Much has yet to come out within next few days and only then it can more lucidly be spelt out.
