After taking a walk around CP.... I pick up a bottle of milk from Keventers and walk to my Shoeshine.

Shoeshine: Aao Sir ji ...believe it ....you are my first customer today....its 4 pm..bahut manddi hai inn dinno..
Me: Kyon kyaa hooa...
SS: MCD election hai , haath haath mein jootha hai , AAP se Dilli Waala rootta hai...
M: Ha..ha ... is situation that bad....
SS: Arre Sir ji .... Dilli waale dill waale zaroor hothe hai ...parr bewakoof nahi... we realized Kejri was just using Delhi to launch himself onto National Stage... used our money to publicize himself ....and tom-tom work that you don't get to see on the ground..
M: But Kejri and Gang say they've done phenomenal work in Delhi ...
SS: Rajouri Garden ne jawaab abhi-abhi diya hai ...abh wait for entire Delhi to respond!!
M: So what do you predict ...
SS: BJP will win....some people are still entrapped in Kejri's jhaansas so AAP will be distant second and Congress ka safaaya... Congress Leaders jumping off the sinking ship......
M: Arvinder Lovely left and joined BJP... and Barkah got marching orders after she commented on RaGa's ineptitude to lead and his fav time pass (not fit to lead and hides from Party Workers)!!
SS: But I am surprised some Congress Leaders still say RaGa is a Leader..
M: (Singing) Congress mein rehna hai ..toh Rahul ki tareef karr pyaare... warna Sonia Congress mein rehni nahi dehgi pyaare... (tune.. Duniya mein rehna hai toh kaam karr pyaare)...

M: Lal Batti made them go wonky...from atop the Car it went ...notionally....to atop their heads ...if you look closely it all starts with Lal Batti on the Car....gaadi and laal batti are the starting symbols of power...so he took away what was giving them and the Car...a necessity....a bad name!!!
SS: Why is Nitishoowa insisting he would still use Laal Bathi...
M: Abh Laloo ki company rakhe ga toh kuch toh effect dimaag pe padhe ga ...jaise .....sanghi baddle roop (companions make you change) ... jaise kachchre ke dher pe badbodaar aur gandhi (smelly and dirty) lagthi hai dhoop (sun rays)...

FORUM

(The views expressed in this column are of the contributors. We do not owe any responsibility, whatsoever, of the views of our surfers as they are their personal opinion. However, we would also request our contributors not to be personal, directly or indirectly, in presenting their views. Instead of countering the views which ‘X’ has already expressed, our contributors are advised to present their own views. Also be brief, say about 200 words at the most since any views longer than that if eliminated at our end would carry the risk of the contrbutor’s item losing its original essence).

Why is it called Civil Services Day ?

Civil Service Day held on 20th-21st April. Why is it called Civil Services Day and not IAS day, when only talk is about work of IAS officers and the award system is exclusively for them. Others can be allowed to do their work in their offices when this whole exercise doesn't concern them at all.

DATE WITH RTI

Transfer of RTI Application to several PIOs

A complaint was filed with the CIC alleging that the information sought was not provided and the complainant’s RTI application was transferred to several CPIOs who did not revert in a positive way. The CIC advised the public authority to desist from these kinds of practices which defeats the very purpose and motive of the RTI Act.

Comments

It is a common practice in the headquarters of many organisations to transfer the RTI applications received at their end to different sub-ordinate offices carelessly. Such a blind redirection of the RTI applications needs to be curbed as the same is not envisaged under the Act.
