From an INFOSCION to a POLITICION - Nandan's Chronicles - 2

[I got this article in a forwarded email. It talks about Nandan Nilkeni's experience in parliament. I don't know about the source of this article.]

Continuing my tryst with capturing the life and times of Nandan Nilekani in his new avatar as a Cabinet Minister, here is what he had penned after his first day in the Parliament. The last entry stopped when the House was just about to begin. Let’s see what happened thereafter….

The House was in pin drop silence. I was brimming with anticipation and excitement!!!! Manmohan had informed me that my introduction was one of the important points of the agenda. I hoped that I will be able to make my speech properly. After so many interviews and conferences, I was nervous today!!!!

1 Day Teacher's Strike in Maharashtra

What is the need for them to go on strike? Can't they just do their work properly? There are some quick questions from the people who meet me today.

But this is not the reality. Sixth Pay Commission salaries have not been implemented for college and university teachers in Maharashtra and a recent state government resolution has set pay in schools and junior colleges at lower than the central government scales.

Why government is hesitant in paying to teachers. they make the future by teaching the generations.

They are drivers of the society....a healthy society.

I am with teachers.
