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.

Pension issues -News flash

  • My earlier blog ‘Avenues’ (uppermost.me) still has a regular feature as a Page ‘NewsPage” to exclusively cover the news and other organisational developments for the use and interest of the pensioners of State Bank of India and also others. It is since decided that the same feature is incorporated in this blog too ‘meneelkanth.blog’ to furnish the readers with the instant news including court cases on staff matters especially the Pension issue presently. The feedback provided to Avenues was mainly as from KR Saini, an architect of building up the pension issue a sound platform to raise reasoning based demands on this count. The latest news sent to me by him is verbatim appended here in its original form for the information of you all:

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.

Interaction with the readers:

Short Post:

The strength of any writer including the bloggers lies in the hands of the readers, followers and well wishers but for which nothing moves on meaningful lines and the very purpose, howsoever best and noble is the missionary zeal on the part of the author, flops. This short post is especially addressed to them seeking their sympathy and cooperation in the same measure as they did in paying their attention to this blog’s predecessor uppermost.me (Avenues) which proved to be a record success. Since this blog is drawn up entirely on a different footing and purpose, all my readers, viewers and other sympathisers are required to refresh their FOLLOW and FOLLOW VIA EMAIL buttons as soon as possible for them. Both these buttons are available as widgets on the right hand side of the blog including this very post. My greeting and good wishes to all of them with love and affection.


Switch over to a bigger spectrum:

This blog of mine is a successor to its predecessor one UPPERMOST.ME of ‘Avenues’ and is titled as MENEELKANTH.WORDPRESS.COM under the head ”Eternity”. It gives a wider choice to go for a theme of subjects including paid ads and may serve a better purpose for my beloved readers. The very theme and design of the blog as sponsored by Wordress is a robust one capable of impressively heralding the voice of the common people especially the workers in banks and other organisations. I do owe sumptuous thanks to WordPress for their help and cooperation but for which this transition was not possible. Though much costly, the investment is quite worth it read in the context of the purpose of a freelancer journalist like me and the very readership I have all along been serving. My strength lies with my people in the field and I take them as my shield and buckler in all eventualities. The neo modalities are yet to be worked out on which task I have to arduously harness myself and my team to serve the people and the society with a will and the commitment.
