Small People and Mean Methods!!

“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped.”
                                                                                                                 ― Robert F. Kennedy

Everyone one of us who held our head high and challenged the decades old officer's dadagiri by committing ourselves to the strike call given by JAC had worked to change a small portion of events. Irrational unleashing of fear had been the only and only way that was adopted by NVS Officers to run Navodayas. The strike has shaken them and hurt their egos!

Had Samiti opened and maintained a dialogue before the strike had started with sincerity,it would have not shown them in such a poor light. Divide and Rule is an ancient trick! Pretend as if nothing is happening while your house is on fire is so stupid!

A resourceful minister, being at the helm, has saved Samiti from opening one of the most self destructive methods  that they would have resorted to!   Had  Reddy failed to rope in the political leadership to check the ivory tower bureaucracy's autocratic gestures, things would have taken ugly turn leaving the employees feeling bitter. Strike was gracefully called off!

Still Samiti has shown its true colors by serving suspension orders on lower level workers while the leaders  deliberated with the Minister! Isn't it called Cowardice? Promises of revocation of suspensions had remained promises until the Minister was again approached!

Time only will tell us, whether anything positive will come out of the strike in terms of resolution of demands. What the strike has achieved  is the freeing of the people from fear! The suspensions and delay in revocation clearly shows the desperation of Samiti to keep the fear psychosis intact!
