Indian Railways.. Please stop this kolaveri

Kerala express

AC Coach issue of Trivandrum-New Delhi Kerala Express of 17th December 2012 proves that the Indian Railways is still living with its colonial legacy of cruelty. First Railways provided sleeper coach for the passengers who booked tickets in AC coach. When they protested against this, TTT complained against a passenger to Railway Protection Force (RPF). RPF dragged this passenger out of train and manhandled him in front of co-passengers and others at Ernakulam south railway station.

Why TTT and the RPF officials were not empathizing with the passengers’ problems? Why they don’t understand that the protest of passengers are the natural outcome of their dismay on the service they got from railways. This incident resembles the recent ‘fake hijacking incident’ happened in Trivandrum airport. In that incident, Pilot made a fake complaint against the passengers that these passengers were tried to hijack the flight. Police took passengers in custody. Actually, the passengers were protesting against the Air-India’s decision to terminate the service at Trivandrum instead of Cochin.  How should passenger react in these kinds of occasions? Whether the Railways or Air India expects that the passenger should travel with the poor service they offer.

The TTT involved in this issue and the RPF officials are the living tombs of our colonial rulers. In this era of human rights and customer service, they are behaving like the rulers of railways. It is high time to change the mindset of Railways. They must come out from the shell of a nasty government department and should incarnate as a modern service industry.

Another Soumya?

Passenger

Girl gang-raped in moving bus

New Delhi, Dec 17 (IANS) A girl in her 20s was gang-raped in a private moving bus here, police said Monday. The incident took place Sunday night, when the victim and her boyfriend boarded the bus from Munirka to go to Dwarka.  Police said that around five to seven bus crew started misbehaving with the girl a few minutes after she boarded the bus, which was traveling without other passengers.

The victim’s boyfriend tried to prevent the men from molesting her, but the men beat him up and sexually assaulted the girl. The accused then threw the girl and her boyfriend out of the bus near Mahipalpur in south Delhi’s Vasant Vihar area. Both victims were rushed to Safdarjung Hospital by a PCR van. Doctors said the condition of the girl is critical. Police is yet to record the statement of the victim, but a case has been registered.

Now, it’s the unfortunate turn of a girl from UP in New Delhi. Like, our Soumya, who was thrown out of train, raped and died in hospital, a girl from UP was raped by a group of dirty fellow-Indians after boy friend was thrown out of the moving bus. Why our governments frequently fail to protect our passengers from the attacks of such nasty anti-socials?

It’s the high time to enact and implement the Passenger Rights in India. If we don’t do it now, we will debate on this incident in media and in public and will forget once the vehemence of the issue is over.

Please join with us in our movement to get Passenger Rights enacted and pray for the life of the young girl.

Milkman of India & Cooperation

September 9, 2012 Leave a comment

The great Varghese Kurian is no more. But, the model he created, the way he followed and the results of his all efforts will remain forever. Nation needs leaders like V Kurian, who worked with out greed for money and power. Only such leaders can lead our nation to better levels. When cooperative societies and its leaders fail to remember their calls, he led a cooperative society to become model for everyone. In this greedy world, sometimes corporate leaders forget their visions and missions. They are running behind the short term goals. But, Kurian was lived with one dream- Amul. He made it an undisputed Indian brand, which every Indian can pride.

Our salutes to great Indian hero, who taught Indians.. Indians can

I was just recollecting what I learned during my graduation. COOPERATION. Kurian was a hero & prophet of Cooperative principles. This for all who know Cooperation or don’t know Cooperation.

Cooperative Principles and Values

International Cooperative Alliance Principles and Values

Definition:

A cooperative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically controlled enterprise.

Values:

Cooperatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, cooperative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others.

Principles:

The cooperative principles are guidelines by which cooperatives put their values into practice.

 

1st Principle: Voluntary and Open Membership

Cooperatives are voluntary organizations, open to all persons able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political, or religious discrimination.

2nd Principle: Democratic member Control

Cooperatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Men and women serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership. In primary cooperatives members have equal voting rights (one member, one vote) and cooperatives at other levels are organized in a democratic manner.

3rd Principle: Member Economic Participation

Members contribute equitably to, and democratically control, the capital of their cooperative. At least part of that capital is usually the common property of the cooperative. They usually receive limited compensation, if any, on capital subscribed as a condition of membership. Members allocate surpluses for any or all of the following purposes: developing the cooperative, possibly by setting up reserves, part of which at least would be indivisible; benefiting members in proportion to their transactions with the cooperative; and supporting other activities approved by the membership.

4th Principle: Autonomy and Independence

Cooperatives are autonomous, self-help organizations controlled by their members. If they enter into agreements with other organizations, including governments, or raise capital from external sources, they do so on terms that ensure democratic control by their members and maintain their cooperative autonomy.

5th Principle: Education, Training and Information

Cooperatives provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers, and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their cooperatives. They inform the general public – particularly young people and opinion leaders – about the nature and benefits of cooperation.

6th Principle: Cooperation among Cooperatives

Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative movement by working together through local, national, regional, and international structures.

7th Principle: Concern for Community

While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies accepted by their members.
