In Detail – In case you want more
About Greater Voice
Here, sand meets the surf, facts are told and names are named. Greater Voice began with a modest effort on November 26, 2007. Its admin Neeraj Bhushan believes writing is resistance and speaking is truth. Greater Voice thus stands for individuals at risk, anywhere. It discourages handout journalism, promotes fearless story telling and believes that evolved writers are the real journalists and not those who merely do stenography in the business!
Neeraj had a crisis in career while working with Indian news agency The Press Trust of India Ltd. or PTI in short. When he was fired in 2003 illegally and unjustifiably, he thought he should move on as it was never the right place for him. But, then, he decided to take the challenge head-on.
Neeraj could not even otherwise obtain suitable employment as PTI happened to be an influential news organisation. Thus, as the General Secretary of PTI Employees’ Union, Delhi, he kept the fire of enthusiasm burning, without which, he believed, there could be no warmth in victory.
In the meantime, Neeraj contested his dismissal in the labour court which held that the actions of his company were both illegal and unjustified.
The court has ordered his reinstatement with continuity of service and full back wages. [Case Update: PTI has preferred an appeal in Delhi High Court where the matter is pending.]
The operative part of the order dated February 24, 2011 passed by J.P.S.Malik, Presiding Officer of the Delhi Court, and announced in open court, is reproduced below:
“Accordingly, it is held that Management has failed to prove the allegations against the workman leveled vide chargesheet EX.WW1/6, and so, has failed to prove misconduct on the part of the workman. Dismissal of the workman by the Management vide order dated 23.4.2003, was both illegal and unjustified. The workman is entitled to reinstatement to his job with continuity of service and full back wages from the date of his dismissal i.e. 23.4.2003 till his reinstatement.”
This place – Greater Voice – has been developed by Neeraj from his everyday experiences. He spends some quality time here. This is totally about him, his people, his causes & things that catch his fancy. Neeraj believes Greater Voice has the potential of fulfilling all unfinished works of some great persons who lived on this planet, ever.
Greater Voice does not espouse a political point of view on the news-views. It reports the truth and expects its readers to recognise its editorial integrity. It seeks to read and report India-specific social, political and economic trends by being the premium internet journalism website devoted exclusively to news and related content. It attracts readers from virtually every country and territory on earth and hopes to generate revenue from its contents, syndication and advertisements.
The website would like to be funded by investors who believe in Greater Voice and have a long-term perspective and interests in media. Better coverage requires freedom from operational constraints and incidental pressures.
The ultimate mission at Greater Voice is to help fill the enormous void that is vivid in media coverage. While we need knowledge, we are being served news laced with partisan views. You have the right to know how best you can be governed, and how best you can live and live happily. Our health, environment, security and money are constantly being threatened. Hence Greater Voice …to bring to you true facts, to present accurate circumstances, to show real video and photographs… to inform you, to entertain you, to help you shape your life.
Greater Voice remains free to all. But if you value the kind of writing that is shared here, please help in reporting the untold stories from anywhere. Keep supporting Greater Voice.
