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 (BBD) was enjoying an old Hindi movie named as “Ab tak Chhappan” – a Nana Patekar starrer. Those who have enjoyed this movie may recollect the last scenes of the movie when Sadhu Agashe (the main Character) is ridiculed by the villain, as to whether Sadhu Agashe had the requisite STRENGTH, “Jo saala apni bibi ko nahi bacha saka, wo strength ki baat karta hai (fellow stupid Sadhu could not save his wife and talks of strength – my foot)”. BBD did find the same ridicule in the minds of good number of people in the organization, where he served with the best of his all STRENGTH. The list of well wishers of BBD contains host of individuals in the power that runs the country like Principal Secretary/Joint Secretary/ADGP of state Police/Political Bigwigs/ Members of TMGS of various nationalized Banks to a temporary menial worker of RRB. But, BBD could not recollect names of 3 Zamirs in his life.
Saala, BBD apne to relegate hone se aur publicly humiliate hone se nah bacha saka {stupid BBD could not save himself from relation and humiliation of highest orders by few individual Competent Authority of the organization which he served with all his sincerity (and blaw blaw) and talks of strength and refers big names}
However, there may be again a huge list of people who were rubbed on wrong side by BBD during discharging his DUTIES, which he is proud that he did it with a deadly precision.
BBD, recollects one such occasion. It was the summer of 2002, when he faced the terrible heat of Pataliputra. The unit, which he was heading had 12 DRT cases (of which 9 were once upon a time TOD in CA with nothing to fall upon), 93 SF cases (of which 73 were only in the form of useless paper bundles having only negative value) and 3 time barred DDs. The unit was notoriously infamous for all sorts of punishment – right from the Ombudsman to Consumer fora and more than a million in CCPD account. The greatest achiever was the Legal advisor, who rose from rags to rich – thanks to the Organization having Office without Head (grey matter)
One fine morning BBD received a letter from the Hon’ble Competent Court as to why not the case be dropped for further servicing as the case is purported to be against a dead man. 96 days time was granted to BBD either to furnish the details of legal heirs or the case will be flushed out. As per the practice, the job was assigned to the officer handling recovery department. After lapse of nearly 60 days the gR8 officer, who was privileged to be retained in the same unit even after various issues, only because he was a very close relative of a very powerful POWER that was. Now, only 36 days (factually less than a month working days). The SF debtor reported died in a plane crash few years back. The entire workforce was blissfully ignorant of the list of casualties. So, BBD first approached the office of the airliner to know the name of beneficiary who received the compensation. After making series of visits, what BBD got was boots of the retiring Branch Head of the airliner. By the time, only 20 days were left to respond the Hon’ble Court. Next step taken by BBD, was to find details of beneficiary from LIC as one among the charged securities was LIP. After, few visits, BBD could find the docket at the branch of LIC, which contained only few useless papers of communication. The time cloak was hammering BBD’s skull. Next step, BBD took that he visited the concerned Police station, where the FIR was lodged of the air crash. BBD got the vital clue that Rs.6.00 Lakhs was paid as Cash and the job to the wife of SF debtor was announced by the then Hon’ble aviation minister Shri Sharad Yadav ji. Now, only 6 days were available to BBD. BBD due to his various well wishers could find that she was posted in Delhi and her name was Madam from Muzaffarpur (MfM). By the time, an individual could locate her in Delhi, it was gathered that she was transferred to Kolkata, and presently she was posted at the Kolkata airport. Now, BBD was having only few working hours at his disposal to respond the Hon’ble designated Court. Without wasting time, BBD could get the contact FAX number of the lady and a letter was FAXED by BBD which contained only fabricated lies. BBD, by that time had gathered that it was the father of the SF debtor, who was a working engineer in the state department, was actual borrower doing all activities in the name of his son – (the SF debtor) who had informed the Hon’ble Court through an anonymous letter that their time is wasted in dealing a case against a dead man, had thrown his daughter in law from his house after death of his son, and MfM was going to remarry soon to a gentleman from Gujarat. MfM was also blessed with a son.
Within virtually no time MfM responded the FAX and claimed that she along with her minor son were the legal heirs. BBD could approach the Hon’ble designated court with all documentary evidence well within the time; and the case was restored. Readers may just imagine the volley of curses and abuses that BBD experienced when MfM received a letter from the Hon’ble Court. BBD was sad for the mischief that he played with MfM, but not ashamed as he felt that he was performing the duty with deadly precision.
To conclude, BBD recollects that movie that he witnessed during afternoon of the day – named as Jaane bhi do yaron. BBD is relegated, and two of his well wishers – Arbind and Mishra ji had faced enough humiliation by the Competent Authority of the organization. And we talk of system and procedure!

O Ishan, I pray you, the one who is the LORD of all, an eternal nirvana – bliss, resplendent, omnipresent and is all Vedas in totality. I adore you who is without change, passionless, immeasurable. I bow prostrate to you who is without in the framework of form or shape, font of all sounds and is the fourth impersonal state of atman, who is beyond the scope of tongue, knowledge and all organs of senses. You, the LORD of Himalayas who is fierce, even the destroyer of kaal, a benevolent, abode of qualities and beyond the universe. I bow to you who is profound, in the minds of all living beings. Font of Immense splendour and wealth, shining forehead font of playful and enticing GANGES, with a crescent moon and garland of King Cobra in the neck, you are my LORD. Blue throat, benevolent, skull-cup garland, you are the dearest among all LORDS to everyone. I adore the Bavanipati, who is fierce, immense brave, mature beyond everyone, indivisible, unborn, resplendent like millions of SUN, who manage kama, moksha, moha and makes us dispassionate, holding a trident and can be approached by all and sundry. Auspicious, cause and end of the universe, o LORD please provide me enough courage and eternal bliss minus ignorance, abundant passion. I simply do not know formal way of puja, jap, prayer, still I am bowing continuously. Save me from rebirth, grief, sins and give abundant courage to reinforce the belief of Satyamev Jayate.

(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 (BBD) feels that punishment is a conventional device for the expression of attitudes of resentment and indignation, and of judgments of disapproval and reprobation, on the part either of the punishing authority himself or of those “in whose name” the punishment is inflicted. Punishment, in short, has a symbolic significance largely missing from other kinds of penalties. The morality of punishment rests upon theories of deterrence, retribution, just deserts, rehabilitation, incapacitation, and most recently, restorative justice. These theories attempt to justify society’s imposition of punishment on offenders and try to provide an adequate ethical rationale for inflicting harm.

Deterrence maintains that people are deterred from crime because they are concerned about the possible consequences of their actions. Utilitarian philosophers first put forward this justification for punishment. Retribution theorists argue that punishment is justified because it is deserved, and punishment therefore becomes a question of responsibility and accountability for acts that harm society.

Retribution is justified in a number of ways, including the notion that offenders are paying their debt to society, that they are being censured by society, and that punishment has an expressive character that ought to be communicated to an offender. Purpose of punishment, as Baba Bakhoran Dass understands (as an ex member of TMT of two great institutions) are:

• Punishment will stop the offender from committing further crimes.
• Punishment tells the victim that society disapproves of the harm that he or she has suffered.
• Punishment discourages others from doing the same thing.
• Punishment protects society from dangerous or dishonest people.
• Punishment allows an offender to make amends for the harm he or she has caused.
• Punishment ensures that people understand that laws are there to be obeyed.

The entire process of delivery of the humiliating sentence needs proper and threadbare view with open mind by the Competent Authority for delivery of natural justice – which also exhibit that the punishment is not based on the theory of retribution, rather it should be based on utilitarian theory of jurisprudence. The ground realities are entire different than what is said, what is written; and what is delivered.

BBD recollects one small incident, while working in Dhalbhoomi area of Aaryavarta. One of the customer having nearly 20 lakhs of solid deposit, needed a loan of 13 lakhs based on valuation report of Household residential property worth 25 lakhs. The processing and recommending authority who was an Union leader having leaning towards balm dal or baam dal (leftist to be very precise) and supporter of Sarvahara, was kind enough to recommend 12,95,000 – but under any situation a big NO to 13 lakhs.

BBD as unit head made all efforts to convince this great gentleman Officer for 13 lakhs – but failed. Ultimately, BBD sanctioned 13 lakhs against recommendations of 12,95,000; and as per policy, had to send the note to the sultan of the area for ratification. Incidentally, Sultan never liked BBD in any capacity. After lapse of nearly 354 days, approval was accorded by the Sultan on the action taken by BBD for exceeding 5,000 in recommendations.

Now, the moot question which remains unanswered even after lapse if nearly a decade that why no action was taken against anybody. Either of them was wrong. Both cannot be right.

But, BBD was relegated based on subsequent researches made by the same gentleman officer.

Any solace from any corner for a rightful jurisprudence?
