Laughter in Government Office: i'm having it

After having the bad experience at the Parakode Block Development Officer's office, i went there again after getting an application letter from my legal advisor.This time i am loaded with all what i am needed to get the certificate.Mr. Thankappan was having a mammoth conference that was going on with him presiding.I waited outside the door.In between he came outside smoking a cigrette and talking on the cell phone.I approached him and apologise for me asking him to be answerable to the public the last day.

He replied,"you weren't talking like this before...where is your sense of questioning now.........for getting things done at a govt office there is a got to know that".

Me: i know that sir.i shall keep that in mind dealing govt. offices the next time..

Thankappan: "lemme check after the meeting."

The meeting ended at 1 pm.I entered his office room asking permission.He asked me again the purpose.This time i showed the advocate's request letter along with the court certificate.Now he started the blah blah again.........

Thankappan: "I cannot give some one a certificate if you bring some paper...........If i give you the certificate of my subordinate , he will sue me for i gave certificate to some person without his consent."

I called my advocate and gave the phone to the BDO.He declined to the advocate also.Then by the instructions of the BDO,

i asked him to either accept the application and give me reciept (acknowledgement).This was declined.Then i asked him to give me in writing that he is rejecting my application for salary certificate on certain ground.He got up from his chair and walked around like a mad man.

He went outside and called his driver and instructed him to xerox the court order and advoc's application.Thankappan told me that he need to think and call his brother who is also an advocate.I went to the nearest shop and bought a banana to deal with hunger as it was 2:30 pm then.

Thankappan came back and then again i entered his office and i told him something as i was told by my advoc.Here is it......

"Since you are not giving me either the certificate which the court ordered and my advoc applied formally or giving me in writing that you are accepting (acknowledgement receipt) or rejecting the application, my advoc has filed a contempt of court petition.You might get papers from court and will have to answer the respected court for your act of disobeying the court."

That did it..............

Thankappan told "You want the certificate right..........i shall give not threaten me with contempt of court petition and all......nobody is going to get me in to their nose (malayalam phrase translated)......i will answer then........I shall give you the certificate.........wait for it to get typed..i shall come back and sign it after a finance committee i got to go at 3 not get tensed about that......".

And i got it ...........................

Can't Stop Laughing at the Office...............

I lost my voter id card issued by the election commission of india. I lost it along with the driving license in 2007. I took Duplicate Driving Licence from the same RTO in 2008.Now I have been postponing the efforts to take duplication voters id card due to various reasons. One election came in between and election people were giving duplicates but I didn’t went. Now local body election happens in Kerala. So I got an information that the election department at the Tehsil (Taluk) office is starting to issue duplicate voter id cards from 08.10.2010.So I drove to mavelikkara  yesterterday  in my Astar and it was raining heavily. I reached there and find a long queue of people.Since I have completed the form before hand, I just need to find my card id number and put the data and place in it.A person employed there took my application form and he checked the number of my family member in the kiosk in the same room. The kiosk terminal didn’t showed my number. So he forwarded my application

Generate your online e-aadhaar card easily

Aadhaar Demystified   Aadhaar ,meaning foundation in indian languages, has become a hall of shame  or an object of inconvenience for the common man (aam aadmi). Despite a prominent personality like Mr. Nandan Nilekani at it's helm, India's aadhaar project is an epic fail. UIDAI or unique Identification Authority of India is a ghost body created by the central government.It is yet to get complete legal and constitutional status to discriminate people by providing gas subsidy {LPG subsidy for domestic use} only to aadhaar holders. Why India needed an ID System? India was in the dark about it's own citizen.Infiltration from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Srilanka happens all the time.Politicians provide illegal immigrants (a large chunk are run away criminals and terrorists) with indian election id cards inexhange of votes / money. Some crooks were eating up subsidies designed to reach deserving common man [aam aadmi] by forging fake documents and multiple accounts.
