RANDOM MUSINGSDear Sri Gangadharan,
I am prompted to write following few lines after seeing your post dated October 1, 2014 under the
caption "Let's concentrate on ..........." and the pocket strip "Other's are watching".
I have been going through the posts in LIC PC for a fairly long time .
TIMELY AND APT
- I appreciate the way you have been handling the posts in an impartial/non-partisan way, as much as possible. By your own admission, you had many times exercised the Editor's prerogative of editing/filtering the posts whenever controversial issues are raised or non-positive statements are made which may lead to unpleasantness or which may go against the interests of the pensioner community.
- For instance, today's post as also a few related posts from you are timely and apt. Of late I have been observing your clever way of moderating the discussions amongst the frequent contributors whose submissions may not add value to the cause of the pensioners' interests but only help to sharpen the differences at the cost of the pensioners' groups.
- The eager and enthusiastic contributors fail to see that "the whole world is watching" with/without interest/personal stake in the goings on through the columns of the LIC PC. It is because LIC PC is in public domain and is not operating as a closed group. Some times in their enthusiasm they may post their views, only to be "visible" and/or to show their literary abilities. If such post lead to acrimonious debates though unintended, may embarrass the leadership of different pensioners' groups. As a group of matured intelligent discerning individuals we have to exercise utmost caution before we commit anything to writing. It is what will segregate us from uninformed, casual, careless, irresponsible and disinterested sections of human beings - like "grain from chaff".
friend. I DO NOT - repeat DO NOT - wish to be posted in LIC PC. It is only for personal consumption of
Sri P G Gangadharan. I am confident that you will sincerely accede to my personal request.
