WE ARE TOLD THAT A PENSIONER COULD NOT RENEW HIS SUBSCRIPTION FOR A MAGAZINE IN INDIA DUE TO NON RECEIPT OF HIS PENSION IN THAT COUNTRY. HE WROTE TO THE CIRCULOATION MANAGER:-
Ref. Subscription nO. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Thank you for your reminder dated XXXXXXXXX, regarding renewal of subscription to your esteemed paper.
I am sorry I shall not be able to renew the same due to lack of funds in my bank account in India.
The reason for lack of funds is the stoppage of my pension by the inefficient, dishonest and corrupt pension paying authorities in India that have stopped paying my pension and even say that they have lost my "file".
The despicable old mould of baboos (PETTY OFFICE CLERKS) still expect either BRIBE or the applicants to come and touch their feet! Both these, relics of the past slavery, degrade the proud citizens in this day and age.
It is amazing that India on one side can send a Mars probe but on the other hand cannot dismiss all the useless baboos who act as a brake in the smooth running of administration by bringing bad name to the country.
Eradication of bureaucracy is the next biggest challenge for the new national government.
India ought to have efficient and honest people working in offices at par with Europe, America and Australia. Pensioners should get their well earned pension without any delay or hindrance till death. In India it is the pensioners, some very old and infirm, who are chasing the pension paying authorities, some even resorting to courts to get their dues released.
Why are the White countries, including Sonia Gandhi's ITALY, so advanced in efficiency of their baboos while India is keeping company with third class rotten countries like Bangladesh and Pakistan when it comes to working of office clerks and personnel.
