GLIMPSES from LIFE & TIMES of Baba Bakhoran Dass


(- Prayschit, Paschataap ya Prarabdh?)

(Remorse, Regrets or Destiny?)

Let it not be one among episode of the series of vidhwa vilap from an enigmatic, diabolical and vicious split personality – full of contradictions, a Megalomaniac and overall, a Devil incarnate, Baba Bakhoran Dass requests the readers to show him light.

The Almighty has always been graceful to BBD, as the life BBD has so far experienced is a good mix of ingredients that makes a wonderful chaat. The tingling taste of chaat can only be experienced, not described.

At the time of writing these lines, BBD is relishing the great blessings of the Almighty – in its all worldly gifts like good working environment, good accommodation, good food, nice ambience and facilities to take care of his physical and mental health.

The family atmosphere of BBD taught him of values in personal and professional life. His seniors in the organization taught him of loyalty towards the organization and its customers. To the Best of his abilities, BBD kept the commitment to its highest level of perfection. May be quite stubborn and not ready to be accommodative? However, BBD enjoyed the opportunity in all its way – without SELF.

On EoD, the organization relegated him and thrown in the dustbin of time where he found quite large number of colleagues, seniors. BBD is not aware of full facts of cases of others, but is aware of his case from both angles – as who faced the judgement and examined the same issue as an executor if the case was put before him.

A person was penalised for an account being NPA alleging inter-alia that, as a prudent professional he had recommended the loan to a person who could not sell the product in market and so account become NPA during 2011. During 2012, the Competent Authority found that, factually the unit was not even established. The person so punished during 2011 was alleged that he had connived with the promoters and allowed the funds to be withdrawn fraudulently. A criminal case is filed which is under investigation since more than 3 years. Now, it may be interesting to know that, how come the Competent Authority is so ignorant, while awarding the major punishment that he should satisfy himself as to whether the unit was established or not? If there was a product which could not be sold in the market, thus making the account NPA in 2011 – does it not makes you infer that without completion of the project, how come the product was produced?

BBD seeks view points as to whether he should guide the person concerned to Regret for decision or do an act of remorse or accept it just like that as destiny. Prayschit, Paschataap ya Prarabdh?
