Pradeep Bhandari Detained at Khar Police Station - Infringement of Freedom of Expression??!!

“ऊपर से ऑर्डर आया है” (orders from above - from seniors) was being repeated again & again on the TV yesterday by Republic Channel, and this is not the first time. These statements were made by the police for justifying detention of Pradeep Bhandari a Consultant Editor at Republic Network Channel at the Khar Police station for more than 9 hours yesterday where he was interrogated and they also seized his personal phones.

It is a flimsy excuse, or maybe I think it flimsy, from my involvement with the Indian Navy. The Navy rules made it clear, thereby instilling confidence in the personnel, that they would not be punished simply because they did not obey an order. The act clarifies that an infringement of rules is committed only on “Wilful disobedience of a lawful order”. 

Should this not apply to politicians, bureaucrats, police and even corporate? It is a fact that some folks, some times, end up on the wrong side of stick because they thought it wiser to follow the boss’s instructions. Then, why wouldn’t organisations want this clause to be included in the policies. 

The no-retaliation policy touted by HR of various companies as their commitment to ethical behaviour is post-facto and though helps to a certain extent, does not give the freedom to say NO. Isn't this an infringement on our Right to Freedom of Expression? To simplify this, what it means is that when an order is "unlawful" then the persons or individuals who are entrusted with the task to carry out this "unlawful" order, must have the right to say NO, and thereafter should NOT be punished for doing so.

Incorporation of freedom to disobey an unlawful order in the policies is a must do for organisations committed to honesty, integrity & employee welfare. This would empower loyal & honest individuals who are devoted to the organisation. 

Is it too much to ask??

The Great Indian Festival 2020 is Here!

The Great Indian Festival of 2020 is here! Well, I am talking about two festivals here, one is the actual Hindu Festival called Navratri, that is celebrated for nine nights & ten days every year during the autumn. This festival is also synonymous with "Ram Lila" and Dussehra in the Northern and Western states of India that celebrates the battle and victory of God Rama over the demon Ravana.

So let me begin by wishing all of you a very Happy Navaratri today being the first night. This festival will be celebrated all over India from 17th October to 25th October 2020. Since this festival marks an auspicious period in the Hindu Calendar, people use this occasion to shop for gifts, ornaments, jewellery, dresses, electronic items etc.

Why I Love Shopping On Amazon


Let me tell you how I got hooked to Amazon for all my shopping needs. I have to admit that initially I wasn't all that into online shopping, still being very conservative in my thinking and sticking to the physical stores nearby for all my needs and basic shopping requirements.

Reason being, I could see exactly what I was buying and maybe even try to negotiate (for certain items) for a better deal, get a better bargain and pay directly to the shop owner with my preferred method of payment. I did not have to worry about my card details being misused online, or being overcharged and later having to run around for getting a refund or having to report a fraudulent transaction to my bank or the e-commerce site.

However, times have changed drastically in the last decade or so bringing online shopping to the forefront and I have to admit that it has definitely improved the customer experience in the form of ease of shopping right from your home. I slowly got sucked into Amazon recently, mainly due the forced lock down situation and found it very convenient, prompt, easy and comforting to know that I could order essential supplies right from the comfort of my home and have it delivered right at my doorstep in a clean and hygienic manner. I didn't need to worry about any aspect of the shopping online: be it choosing a product, adding quantities, checking out securely by many options of payment methods, that included Amazon Pay, Netbanking, or via Credit/Debit Card secure transaction. 

They also have a very easy Refund policy for items that are cancelled either by you or for products that could not be shipped due to any other reason. They are very professional about every aspect of the sale, and make sure that you don't have any hassle while shopping at their site. One can also Return items through their "Return Policy" guidelines, which is also very well managed, and their customer care team are always there to help at any point for your queries.

During this Lock down period from the month of March in India, I tried many different platforms like Big Bazaar, Big Basket, DMart etc...and found them very frustrating as they just promptly closed shop, or it was very frustrating to get their app set up on the mobile to start shopping. Even once I had the mobile App installed, I had to "wait" for a "time" slot to start adding stuff to my cart...and there was no guarantee that I would get all the stuff I added. Also these services were made available to our locality on certain days of the week only. The other major setback I faced was the need to keep charging their wallet in advance before I could add products to my shopping cart. It was then that I discovered that Amazon was delivering essential supplies via the Amazon Pantry (New Addition), which made life more comfortable and easier to shop from one place and not have to worry about anything else. 

Now, I am a big fan of amazon online shopping and have since then purchased so many products from the comfort of my home, and even subscribed to the Amazon Prime Membership so that I could qualify for certain deals and bargains on Amazon and also get free and express delivery of most items that qualify for amazon Prime Members...Now most of my products are shipped free of delivery charges and I get them either the next day itself or within a few days depending on items purchased. 

So now you know why I love to shop on Amazon...Download the Amazon app today! And check out these cool Discount Coupons available on Amazon for shopping in different categories like electronics, fashion, home makeover etc...
