SOUND AND FURY SIGNIFYING NOTHING


In private and in hushed tone, people used to criticise Shri RBK for the way he writes. It has taken a serious turn with a few persons taking the matter to open discussion.  This time RBK's critics have chosen the Right hand side bar of the blog for their discussion.

The right hand bar chat column has earned some 'notoriety' as it is here people write their free feelings without the Editor's intervention. No editing tool is available for the Editor to edit the comments appearing there/to intervene in the discussion. 

You can read the article in question which is supposed to carry "CRITICAL POINTS FOR 10 MARCH 2016 SC BENCH FINALS". Read the article and the comments and come to your own conclusion whether it contains any "CRITICAL POINTS
FOR 10TH MARCH SC BENCH FINALS". This time the Editor has relegated the whole discussion to a back page.  Click below.

Parameswaran.nair: I read "SUPPLEMENTARY CRITICAL POINTS FOR 10 MARCH,2016 SC BENCH FINALS" written by eminent writer Shri RB Kishore in RK Sahni's blog. It is cruel to treat the pensioners in this way. He has written critical points for 10MAR SC finals. Pensioners may benefit by his old write ups and the present one. Could you please reproduce his writings and if possible a pensioner may be invited to DEFEND Shri Kishore's writing. After reading all that he has written, I came to the sad conclusion that this gentleman is testing pensioners patience... sorry if I have offended anyone.

subbu: Parameswaran Nair! Please dont feel sorry even if you feel offended him. He is just a good soul who will never take whatever u say to his heart. You said "he is testing pentioners' patience!! He started testing patience even when he was faculty in MDC in 1980s !! I am a die hard fan for him. His writings are like COs circulars particularly of the type of 31st March closing instructions .. No BM ever reads it if my understanding is correct. In any case, you have to keep up your morale to such high levels as to ensure that your attitude matches your aptitutde for such high prose never attempted after the Shakespearean era. Poor souls as we are, we seldom understand him. But that is our lot. Please dont blame him.

J.M. Aboobucker: In any article if you want it to be read by the people for whom it was intended there should be brevity and simple and common language instead of trying to show the author's English knowledge and command over the language. Therefore such articles are simply thrown by many in dust bin.

kn_siddique: AIRIEF blog which is an RBK initiative is visited by a little less than 200 persons. When their conference was going on, I found the visitors number reduced to 150 or so. It only meant that the blog is visited by office bearers of the Fedn. Taking the daily average as 200 (I don't know, number is now further reduced) the yearly visits come to around 75000 which is a poor performance by any standard If Shri RBK continues to write articles like the latest one,the blog will face eventual closure like the AIRIEF blog,Ahd. or lic pensioners chennai. The author's condition while writing the latest NOTE appeared to be critical and pathetic. After reading again and again, I didn't find a single point in the article. I found only English words in their hundreds. It is too late for a pensioner to learn new English words now.. Is it what a pensioner expects from him now? A number of persons write meaningful articles and good as well as very serious discussions are taking place.

B.R.Mehta: AIRIEF Top Leadership is virtually working with a closed mind. For the last many years AIRIEF Leadership is feeling helpless due to black mailing tactics of one single person whom they erred in projecting as Arjuna of Kurukshetra at their Ahmedabad GC in November,2012. Now AIRIEF can neither discard him nor tolerate his exploitation. God bless all of them.

A.K.VENKITARAMAN: Shri RBK once wrote abt his eye sight problem in two long paragraphs. This Is the problem. One shd not bring personal problems to pensioners problems.we come to computer with difficulty just to know SC case.. I read RBKs article. What CRITICAL POINTS he wrote. a dozen paras containing nothing. if people criticise,don't criticise them.

10 Feb 16, 11:11 AM subbu: Under the OCTOPUS is written " m v venuguopalan" . Is it an octopus phenomena? !!! From another angle this could be true also, as he has ventured to analyse and take hold of Sec.48 from all angles .

10 Feb 16, 11:48 AM

nithin.b.: Supposing rbk writes on same subject..(sec.48) he may write "MUST ROLL OUT ARGUMENTS & NOT DECLARE ALL AS A STRATEGY. COURTCRAFT BEFORE SC BENCH FACE TO FACE & METHODOLOGY THEREIN TO TACKLE, HOW TO COME OUT OF THE RIDDLE OF RESTRAINT ,WITH DELECTABLE & DELICIOUS ARGUMENTS FORTHWITH, PORTRAYING REALITY OF TREATMENT BY LIC, MOF/UOI ,WITH A PLEASING SMILE… (quoted from article in question). WREST INITIATIVE & WIN ARGUMENTS , CAN BE A GUARDED SECRET ,APART FROM ANY MASTERSTROKE OR MANTRA FOR UNINHIBITED SUCCESS. AT ANY RATE, THE EXCHANGE OF VIEWS, ASSERTIONS, DATA, LOGIC,SEC 48 HOW TO DEAL WITH, WITHOUT ANTAGONISING SC BENCH BUT HOW TO COME OUT OF THE RIDDLE OF RESTRAINT ,WITH DELECTABLE & DELICIOUS ARGUMENTS FORTHWITH, PORTRAYING REALITY OF TREATMENT BY LIC, MOF/UOI ,WITH A PLEASING SMILE..... (some mistakes occured while copypasting) still good for pensioners to know how he writes for US. PAINSTAKING EFFORTS.
