Still afresh in my mind:
- Watching on a leading TV News Channel (don't wanna name it anyways), highlighted coverage of a Government Servant being made a mess of, for having written BBMP on his personal vehicle!
- Reading in a leading newspaper (again, don't wanna..), an exaggerated report on how Government Vehicles are being used for personal purposes (like dropping their kids to School).
Last Saturday, a Honda City drove into our Office premises. An elderly gentleman, walked straight to me and asked if he could have a look around our Farm! By the time we ended our conversation, his wife, daughter, and son had joined him. Digicam with the son, half-eaten pack of Bingo with the daughter, easy-to-travel suit of the wife and cool dark goggle of the gentleman gave me an impression that the family was on a weekend picnic. Nothing wrong, haann?
The bold and red (I wonder why, always written red?.. danger huhhh?) PRESS tag (both front and rear) on their vehicle caught my attention in no time. Though I managed to keep off the red tagged car, my camera couldn't.
How can this 'elderly' gentleman paste the PRESS tag, in bold and red, to his personal vehicle? (In my honest opinion, the Honda City had all the characters of a typical personal vehicle; alas! am not an RTO Official to issue a Certificate in justification) Hey, no! It is his Company vehicle.. Oh, great! Then, how was it his family hanging around in his office vehicle for a cool weekend picnic?
Media, has always imPRESSed public by preaching 'Rules & Ethics'. Whats it when the coin is flipped? Its real true when said 'we are blind to our own shadow'!
