Thank you all, God bless PTI

As many of you are aware, I had to face an unnecessary and time-consuming litigation which could have otherwise been avoided. Now, the judgment has come which I am dedicating to all who believe in me.

In fact, all these years I had been expressing my willingness before every forum, including my Directors, of settling all the disputes between my union and the management and requesting among other things for my reinstatement, promising that I’ll continue to maintain peace and harmony with my management.

Several courts accordingly, keeping in view my attitude, as well as the multiplicity of the litigations we had been facing, had even been observing that it would be in the interest of justice if peace could be restored in Press Trust of India.

My record in particular had always been good and the only misconduct alleged against me, was as per a 2002 charge sheet pertaining to my trade union activities and I was terminated from service on the basis of the finding of the enquiry officer holding me guilty.

Subsequently, the enquiry held by my management’s enquiry officer was set aside by the court vide an order dated 19.9.2006 that read: “… I find that the enquiry is not fair and proper and is liable to be set aside. I accordingly set aside the enquiry.”

Thereafter, a request by my management to prove the charges against me in the court was allowed, and it then led additional evidence, a process that took considerable time, much to my frustration and penury.

However, now the judgment has come wherein the operative part reads as under: “… it is held that Management has failed to prove the allegations against the workman …, 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.”

Thus, I am, but naturally, emotional and humbled. I thank everyone. I thank you. At the same time, I trust that each one of you will forgive me if I have ever disappointed you on any occasion. This is the time when I expect my seniors and colleagues to treat me as their family member and help re-shape my career, family and life, which has seen many a turbulent times.

I am indeed awaiting a changed cordial atmosphere in news agency PTI which will be created after my reinstatement, for which I shall ever pray. Thank you, once again.


  1. i’m glad reading your article. the web site style is also great, other articles in really excellent display 😀 good job, cheers


  2. Sir, good to hear the news. Unfortunately, there are many things that haven’t changed in PTI. Lot of people still resigning, the “boss” is all-powerful, in-approachable and other so-called “heads” spineless. Hope ur joining will bring some change.


  3. भाई, मिठाई जरूर खिलाना सभी को बिना भेदभाव के. कम चीनी भी कड़वाहट को दबा देती है.

  4. It was dark for couple of years. However, your struggle brought back the LIGHT for PTI. I am sure that the organization will keep its standard and pace. People have shown faith in you and the TRUTH in you have WON… This victory will strengthen your MORALE and help you in your COMMITMENT. God Bless the employees. God Bless PTI.


    • Yes, Rohit. It’s not easy to sit quiet amid a long and continued period of turbulence; more so… when your adversaries are out with daggers to pin you down.

      But, by the grace of God and continued blessings and affections of all who love me, I kept smiling all through. Patience was the key, as also winning hearts.

      Today, I believe, the number of adversaries has shrunk; people in the management appreciate my efforts. God willing things’ll start rolling.


  5. आपकी ग्रेटर वोइस वेब-साइट के बैकराउंड में मिर्चियों का ढेर लगा है. मिर्ची की जलन और तीखापन, तथा आपकी वृषिक (स्कोर्पियो) राशि में सूर्य की तपन ने आपको अपना हक दिलाया है. राहु ग्रह के प्रतिवादियों के खिलाफ यह अचूक उपाय है.

    आपमें ये तेजिस्वता बराबर बनी रहेगी, मुझे पूरा विश्वास है. राशि स्कोर्पियो में सांप के डंक की मह्त्ता स्वत: इतनी होती है कि शत्रु अपना सिर नहीं उठा सकता, कम से कम आने वाले समय में.

    • आपके विश्लेषण के लिए धन्यवाद. मैं तो चाहता हूँ कि कोई शत्रु बने ही नहीं.

      मुझे मुस्कुराना अच्छा लगता है. और मैं चाहता हूँ… सभी मुस्कुराएं. दुनिया बहुत खूबसूरत है.

      आपको एक बार फिर से धन्यवाद.


  6. म्हारो छोरो घ्णों पक्को है अप्णे ईरादा मै. त्न्हे घणी-घणी बधाईयां. खूब्ब ही तरक्की करनी पडे.ळा आपणा नै. त्न्हे नजर रो टिको लगा दूं. खेज्डी और पीप्ली री अर्दास क्र्रूं दिन रात. बुरि नजरों सूं बच अर रहिजो भाया.

    आपरो हंसराज गुज्रराती, पत्र्कार.


  7. You are Mr. Dabang. Ab wo baaki saare neta ‘Munni’ ke jaise ‘badnam’ huye.

    Time to enjoy and relish new fragrance. Congratulations.


  8. अक्खा मुंबई में बोले तो पीटीआई के एक ईमानदार, दमदार और जिंदा इंसान ने कान्हा की मट्की फोड़ दी.

    और न लूट सकोगे मुफ्त का मक्खन और न घिस सकोगे चंदन, मेरे प्यारे नेताओं.

    भाई बोले तो अक्खा मुम्बई पीटीआई/भाषा


    • काश सभी ईमानदार होते, सभी (कम-से-कम) इंसान होते तो ये नौबत ही नहीं आती.

      पीटीआई एक बड़ी संस्था है. हम सब खुशी-खुशी काम कर सकते हैं. लेकिन उसके लिए सबसे जरूरी है हर साथी में काम करने का जज्बा, कर्मचारियों में स्वस्थ प्रतिस्पर्धा की भावना, अधिकारियों की अच्छी नियत, कंपनी व कर्मचारी दोनों के लिए सोचने वाली ट्रेड युनियन और उदार प्रबंधन.

      दुःख है कि इन सबके अभाव में स्थिति हमेशा असंतोषजनक रही है.

      इश्वर सभी को सदबुद्धि दे. मैं सभी के मंगल भविष्य की कामना करता हूँ.

      आईए हम सब मिलकर एक बेहतर पीटीआई बनाएँ. आप हमें एक मौका दें, हम आपको एक मौका देते हैं.


  9. PTI shall regard court judgement. You have given booster dose to all those who were deprived of their rights and kept in silence for decades.
    –All Raos


  10. We welcome your return. When you come: PTI Mein Bharat Bolega. Good luck dear.

    — राजस्थान से सभी कर्मचारी (कुछ-एक को छोड़कर)


    • आप सबों को भी बधाई और धन्यवाद. हां, कृपया खुद को (कभी भी) उपेक्षित न समझें. हम साथ हैं. सभी को साथ रखना है. कल ही चाँद इतनी नजदीक से बहुत कुछ कह गया है. मैनें सुना. आप सबों के चेहरे पर मुस्कराहट देखने के लिए मैं बेचैन हूँ. आपका एक बार फिर से धन्यवाद.


  12. आप से हमें बहुत प्यार है. आप आओगे तो हम अनाथ और सताये हुए कर्मचारियों तथा पत्रकारों को हौसला मिलेगा. ईश्वर आपको सफलता दे, हर कदम और मंजिल पर. आप की प्रतीक्षा में कुछ साथी.


    • होली के दिन आपका सन्देश पढकर अत्यंत खुशी हुई. हमारे घर तो होली इस बार आठ साल बाद आई है. यह आपके प्यार से ही संभव हुआ है. कृपया खुद को कभी भी कमजोर न समझें. हम साथ-साथ हैं. धन्यवाद.


  13. Thanks to you for sharing such an eye opener. You should be allowed to revive everything. I wish you Good Luck.
