AAMCHI MUMBAI AND MARATHI MANOOS PART-2
Before understanding the Marathi manoos, we should recall the history of post Mogul period.
During the last days of Aurengzeb, the Mogul empire was nearly broken up. This could be mainly due to the religious militancy of Aurangzeb. The simplicity of Aurangzeb was not liked by many regional heads. They acted high handedly with Hindus in the name of Aurangzeb. This was against the tradition established by Akbar.
The successors of Aurengzeb were not that bad. But the damage could not be made up. Initially Maratha-s were stronger. then Peshvas became stronger. After the defeat of Bajirao – II, India got divided under small kingdoms. These kingdoms were fighting with each other. British tactfully handled the situation and got direct hold of many regions.
BRITISH RULE AND EDUCATION
British introduced English educational system and also established universities. Because of many regions had been covered by the kingdoms for local governance, the upper class and upper caste could come up as a white collar service class lot.
Marathi people are falling under this category. Gujarat (present Gujarat State) was made of many kingdoms, thereby the educated people had not to go out of Gujarat for a job. On the contrary due to Marathi ruler Gaekwad, Marathi people were dominating in services in Baroda state. Similarly people of upper caste were dominating in the rest of Gujarat.
Due to development of Mumbai during the period of British, Mumbai had provided good employment opportunities.
Pune and Mumbai were the good education centers.
In Gujarat, Baroda, Ahmedabad and Bhavnagar were education centers.
Calcutta, Madras, Banaras and Allahabad were good education centers in rest of India.
That is why South Indians, Bengali and Bhaiyajis (Hindi speaking regions mainly UP and Bihar) were dominating in government services all over India.
Gujarati educated class was divided in textile, commerce, trade and local education. Hence people from other regions had to come to Gujarat for central government job.
Due to language problem the local government services (services in kingdoms), were not available for other regions, these were available for the locals. However for labor jobs, outsiders had good opportunities.
Similar was the case with Mumbai.
IS IT A SOCIAL ISSUE OR POLITICAL ISSUE?
After independence the scenario got changed. Especially in Maharashtra.
The small scale industries were coming up. To meet the demand in white collar and labor jobs, outsiders started coming in Mumbai in large scale. Due to Mumbai being commercial capital, the jobs in Central Government had also been increased. South Indians started getting white collar jobs significantly in Mumbai.
In second half of ninety fifties, Nehruvian Congress noticed that Vote Bank Politics has good opportunities in Mumbai.
Initially Nehruvian Congress tried to divide Mumbai under Gujarati and Marathi as we have seen in part-I.
Nehruvian Congress was partially successful. But this was not enough. Due to heavy number of labor class, the vote bank of Communist was not insignificant. Similar was the case with service class.
To reduce the strength of Communists, Nehruvian Congress produced Datta Samant.
To corner the vote bank of Marathi, Yashvant Rao Chavan produced Shiv Sena.
Sharad Pawar produced MNS to reduce the strength of Shiv Sena.
IS IT ABSOLUTELY POLITICAL?
Yes. So far politics is concern, especially the politics of Nehruvian Congress, NCP, Shiv Sena and MNS is concern, the Issue of Marathi Manoos is political.
The politicians have nothing to do with the interest of Marathi Manoos.
Shiv Sena is of the opinion that Marathi Manoos is getting neglected in employment, we are here to safe guard the interest of Marathi Manoos.
If it is really like that, then what about the infiltrators coming from Bangladesh and living in Mumbai?
Similar is the case of cross border antisocial elements. Daud Gang is working in Mumbai. It is smuggling and resolving disputes of real property-cases, out of court. What should be the role of Shiv Sena?
Is it that Marathi antisocial elements are getting jobs in the network of Daud? Is it that the allotment of huts on the encroached land of the Government, the Sena is one of the parties? What is Sena’s role on the Bangladeshi infiltrators?
LEAVE THIS ASIDE
If outsiders are capturing the job where the Marathi Manoos has a lien, then who is responsible for this?
The responsibility lies only and only with ruling parties in Maharashtra. The ruling party in Maharashtra is Nehruvian Congress and NCP alliance.
WHAT IS THIS NCP?
NCP got itself separated from Nehruvian Congress simply because Sharad Pawar has no scope to become PM if he remains in Nehruvian Congress. This is because, “Number One post” is reserved for Nehruvians.
The agenda of Yashavant Rao Chavan and Sharad Pawar has always remained, to share the power. They are the cultural Incarnation of Nehruvian.
But how can multiple incarnation exist simultaneously?
How Rama and Parashurama had existed simultaneously? God can go beyond the principle of physics. Similarly Nehruvian Congress is supposed to exist as multiple parties.
During emergency, Yashvant Rao Chavan had supported Indira Gandhi. When she got defeated, he deserted her party. When she won again he joined the same party.
Sharad has a culture to support any party which can serve his vested interest.
The undivided Shiv Sena had supported Emergency of Indira Gandhi as soon as she imposed.
What is the “Interest of Marathi Manoos”?
Is it not, one type of reservation?
Yes it is a reservation in job.
WHAT IS THE POSITION OF EMPLOYMENT
Nehruvian Congress has established a culture that the jobs, and mainly the government jobs, are for Charity.
If the governance is corrupted, every system would be failed.
You can keep any types of entrance examination for entry in a service, it would be a failure.
ONCE UPON A TIME (ONCE COULD BE VERY WELL MANY)
Once upon a time, a cash of one crore rupees was seized from the house of a Chairman of Public service Commission of Punjab. This gives you the appropriate message of functioning of the governance.
Even the GRE examinations which is being conducted by foreign institution, the cases of leakage of question papers occur. Off course it is good that the institution cancels the examinations and conducts re-examinations.
Once upon a time there was a news line on a rate of 2 Crore rupees for becoming a Rail Board Member. This amount was collected from GM West Zone by a Nephew of the then Railway Minister.
Case of Railway recruitment for Class-IV advertisement published in local newspapers of Bihar and not in vernacular papers of Maharashtra.
All the times, the railway stations of zone and or divisions in Western Zone get flooded with Bihari candidates. Look at as to how many number of Bhaiyaji working in Railways. Are Marathi Manoos not capable to function as Class-IV?
There was a case where MTNL Mumbai had to appoint 40 Stenographers. 39 candidates belonged to Kerala, were selected. A noise had been made by Shiv Sena. Was the noise not justified?
Similar could be the case with non-Marathi Mannoos also. Marathi Manoos too acts like this to some extent.
I was in Prabhadevi MTNL building. I noticed very few Gujaratis even in Class –III. The population of Gujarati in Mumbai is not less than 20 percent. At least 10 percent Gurajari Manoos could have been employed by Marathi Manoos in Mumbai. Gujarati Manoos are almost like Marathi Manoos in Mumbai. That is, they speak Marathi as well.
CONTRARY TO THIS, WAS NOTICED IN MUSCAT
In the building of Ministry of Communication in Muscat, more percentage of the Gujarati Manoos had been employed by the Muslim ruler of Oman than they are employed in Mumbai.
Now look at the Central Government Offices in any state barring Gujarat and Maharashtra, you would find, all most all local persons right from Class-III to Class-I. You cannot think of a non-local person employed by a local head of the office or industry.
Yes. As for UP and Bihar and North East states, the matter is little different.
In Bihar and UP you will find Bengali officers in good numbers. In North East you will find domination of Bengali speaking officers.
Bengali, Maravadi and Bihari would employ their own people in their shops or restaurants. Whereas a Gujarati would employ locals. That is why Khasi (the local people known as Khasi) would not trouble Gujarati during local riots.
As for North East states, the officers would say; “local people are lazy, and they do not like to work.”
As for Gujarat, the outsiders say: “Gujarati-s do not know English.”
But one should know about the English of Non-Gujarati peoples too. It is not remarkable. In fact the shortage of good correspondents is a worldwide phenomenon.
I can quote a lot examples on the English of Non-Gujarati-s. An ITS (Indian Telecom Services means who are recruited directly after passing a competitive examination) officer who once upon a time was in Material Management in the Directorate of Communication, Sanchar Bhavan, New Delhi. Since he was in Material Management, he was supposed to be good in English. This is because for constructing the specifications, in a tender, one has to be good in drafting. This officers was transferred to North East. The reason of transfer was not his English.
I found him, not able to write a letter promptly. He used to take full one day to prepare a final draft of a letter of one page, paper size A4.
I have worked under a lot ITS officers. Hardly 5 percent were worth for their post. I would like to mention only 3 remarkable Officers. One was excellent in every field. Another was excellent in strategy. Third one was good in relations.
First two were ITS officers, but they were Departmental Outsiders. Departmental outsider means they were already working in a lower post (Class III), but had been appointed to the cadre, as they passed the examination of ITS.
The government is run by IAS, ITS, IPS, IFS etc… officers. Their capability is nearly the same. Nearly the same, means they are not worth for the post they hold. If Narendra Modi is to scrap these cadres, it is not bad.
But what is the answer to the Subject issue “Marathi Manoos”?
It is only the mismanagement of bureaucrats and self-centeredness of politicians.
Why the states could not do development of their own?
Shiv Sena and MNS leaders are making Marathi Manoos fool. If this is not true then they themselves are fool.
What is the difference between a stray dog and a lion?
If you hit a dog by throwing a stone, the dog would run towards the stone. Lion would deal with the person who threw the stone.
Shiv Sena and MNS leaders are like stray dogs. They attack Hindi speaking entrants, instead of hitting Nehruvian Congress and NCP leaders.
The cause of unemployed Marathi Manoon, is Nehruvian Congress, its culturally allied leaders in UP, Bihar, Bengal and Maharashtra (NCP).
The unemployed persons coming from UP, Bihar, Bengal etc.. are not at any fault. They are starving there. They leave their homes, they leave their relatives, they leave their friends, when they come to Maharashtra or Gujarat. Their intention is not to trouble Marathi and Gujarati Manoos.
The water level in UP, Bihar, Bengal is not below 15 feet. Bihar has coal for 400 years. Bengal has forest. All of them have man power. What do you need for productions? Kashmir is called Heaven on the Earth. North East is called the land of Kuber the wealthiest king of India.
Marathi Manoos individually, are not bad. This is just like Vora and Khoja among Muslims who are not bad. But Muslim leaders defame the whole community. Similar is the case with Manoos of UP and Bihar.
Yes. As for infiltrators, the government should act high handedly.
Suppose, the development in India becomes very fast, and it is balanced also, then what should be the policy on Son of the Soil?
You should follow the policy of Gujarati business man. Employ the best suitable person on merits.
Even in Government services, if one is sincere, intelligent and hard worker, he/she would be in heavy demand. He/she would not be identify by a region to which he/she belongs. This is true only if the next superior is not self-centered.
JOB IS NOT A CHARITY
In Nehruvian Congress, by virtue of birth in Nehru family, the Number One power post is 100% reserved for Nehruvian progeny. This has produced parties with similar culture, in many states. This has spoiled the social and working culture in India.
