Of Strikes and Gandhi Jayanti in the same week!!

October 2, 2009

Unbelievable! The Strikes strike back!

Gandhiji must have not thought that the non co-operation movement that he captained against the British during his lifetime, would one day maim the public structures of Independent India..

Pilots jeopardised Jet Airways and Air India by going on sick leave..
Professors of IIT – IIM going on hunger strikes..

Certain pockets of people are holding the general public at ransom to have their demands met…

There must be some appropriate machinery for getting them addressed… not by rampant strikes.

As Mr. Tharoor points out rightly, “the cattle class” who pay the regular taxes is completely mowed down by such events.

Mahatma Gandhi wouldnt be really happy on his 140th birth anniversary with how his ideals are being misused to butcher the public services sector of our country.


Is Gandhi Jayanti just another Holiday? Do we only remember him because of today’s Google Doodle?

    The second strike that you have mentioned is not holding public at ransom. Education does not come under public service. You should check out nanopolitan blog for the whole information on IIT faculty strike.
