Anderson, law, logic and other shit
I generally dont like speaking about catastrophic shit, but there are a few things that worry me because i dont understand the logic behind it. All the NGO’s, the victims and the govt. wants anderson the ceo of Union carbide to be convicted. I simply dont understand what will they get out of it, and how is anderson responsible for the tragedy. What if he is the CEO. How can a CEO know about the daily functioning of a plant. There are other people to look after it, it simply isnt his job so he shouldnt be responsible. This reminds me of the case that happened a few years ago when the bazee.com (now ebay india) was brought to court because some one sold the DPS mms on their website. Now what kind of shit is this, how does the CEO is responsible, he cant surf thru his site looking for what people are selling, even if there is someone who looks after it, then he is responsible and not the CEO. I simply dont understand why everytime the head of a company is held liable… i mean there simply isnt any logic because the CEO wasnt involved in any of the decision making process that led to the incident or is it that simply because he the one that makes money lets break his ass if everything goes wrong.
Now Union carbide india limited (UCIL) was a subsidiary of Union carbide, UCIL was jointly owned by union carbide and some indian investors, which included some indian PSEs. Lets agree with that the disaster happened because of negligence or low quality maintenance thou Union carbide (now dow chemicals) still maintains that it has been a sabotage by an employee which is very much possible because at the time company was facing lot of labor problem. Now the CEO is not responsible for maintenance it is the work of the lower level employees, or we could say of the safety or maintenance manager. How can you book a CEO for culpable homicide when none of the workers responsible for the maintenance were convicted. Never an effort was made to find out actually whose fault it really was.
The Chairman, md, vp, and other higher level managerial staffs were convicted but none of the workers who are directly involved with the safety and maintenance. How does a CEO who is sitting in a foreign office is supposed to know whats happening in a plant. Its like blaming the home minister for a murder that took place. Its just meaning less, how can one act if one doesnt know, or one is not in contact with the incident.
Its the typical pakodo the gori chamadi wale ko. He is a foreigner so we want his ass. The garibs have been harmed so its the fault of aamir where as actual it could be the fault of one of the garib workers at the factory, but its not like that how our mentality works. The world is divided between aamirs and garibs, if anything happens to the garib they wont blame another garib but they will blame the aamir. In the same way the aamir will blame the garib. I think anderson should not be brought to India, he is an old man now probably guilty with the mistake that has been thurst upon him. Let him die in peace. As for rehabilitation and stuff its too long, why cant the government take care of it, can the rehab be done only with dollars from that company. The politicians are taking home truck loads of money with their scam, why cant the government pay to the victims and then wait for the money from the company instead of waiting for the company to pay to the victims. For the government isnt it just chillar?.
So the union carbide sold its indian stake, the governemnt bought it. Dow chemicals bought Union carbide. Now the indians want dow chemicals to pay for victims. Now why would they do that, dow hasnt bought the Indian operations. Indian operations of union carbide is with the indian governemnt so the indian government should pay for it. Dow has nothing to do with it. Reliance was recently trying to buy dow chemicals in that case would reliance have paid for it, certainly not. The Indians want from the foreign company only. Its the typical Goras doing atyachaars on the garib indians so we want to fuck the goras mentality.
