Anderson, law, logic and other shit

(Inpic: budhi aurats with leg latking in kabar, want another budha with leg latking in kabar, fucking nonsense they should worry about compensation instead)

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.

fuck it.

  2. To be tough with Union Carbide is to close the doors to other multi-nationals, or at least send the message that if things go wrong we can be tough. You think the govt would do that?

  3. @happy thts true, if atall they wanted to convict him they shouldnt have allowed him to go… Actualy he had the decency to come to india after hearing about the incident.. after which he was arrested then left on bail@neena.. well that is one of the points, and govt wont mind losing a few mnc if votebank is at stake..

  5. I liked your take. You are so very right. But, one point is if the CEO ever issued an apology even though he was not responsible or ordered a probe and took personal interest in compensating the victims. If he hasn't then he is at fault too, though not for homicide (give me a break, that is ridiculous!).I liked the various points you have brought to light in this post.

  6. @crazy thts right@vithal.. i think the ceo did issue an apology, but in the hoopla all got lost.., the company got a probe conducted by an independent agency which came to the conclusion that it was a sabotage…but i do agree with the compensation part, he should have taken care of that.. but its easier said than done

  7. hi maya…well ceo is responsible like it or not…that's the part of the job responsibility that comes with being a ceo of a company…i work in a plant, so i have had till now pretty good knowledge of how things work around here. the ceo has to take care of every angle and enforce the best safety standards in contemporary industry, because he's the one with the supreme decision making authority.as far as govt paying the compensation, the less said the better it will be. you know how govt works.

  9. Its like blaming the home minister for a murder that took place. – Sheer stupidity of humankind it is. Humans are by default morons. Intelligent people are accidental.

  10. @abhi that may be true, but a ceo might be totally from a different field. he might not have an idea about the workings and saftey requirements of a plant. So i dont think he shud be responsible.. safety and maintanace managers should be the one who should take care of those thing… I think the CEO's job should be to try and maximise the company's profit rather than worrying about safety and security…its wrong to put every thing on ceo's head. there should be division of labour and responsibility.@darshan.. yes, and they are never going to change

  11. dis all are fucking politics… either who are running after d ceo are media ppl to incease TRP, politican who want to make big mollahs.. n d NGOs who are good for nothin want both eye coverage and money if they can siphon out from d company … It's all holy shit… fuck Indian judicary for mocking it self every time… fuck dem all..

  12. I would differ on this.If you look at the letters that were exchanged between the subsidiary and the UC, it clearly indicates that the company was aware that a disaster was about to happen as many safeguards were not followed. And its not possible that Anderson was not aware of that or this was not brought to his attention.Having said that I think a mockery is made of the the greatest industrial disaster where few of the victims are yet to receive compensation and the ones who got received a measly sum.No one is interested in bringing the culprits to justice, everyone involved even the governments (which both the state and central government belonged to Congress), the judiciary system, etc are just trying to shift the blame instead of taking care of the problem that still exists on the site.The problem is that there is no closure for the victims who became impaired and lost their near and dear ones. The only way they think of doing so is to nail Anderson.The media hype will soon die down but no one is interested in cleaning the mess…

  13. About dow chemical i agree with you because of legal reasons.I do not agree regarding other points.may try to write a article regarding that.thanks

  14. @ankti.. very well put, they all are the same..@survior.. there is no proof that anderson knew about it, and anyway its the indian subsidiary and its head that has to look into such prob and not the global head…why cant the govt pay the victims, why is it so necessary that only UC shud pay… govt is also responsible for it..@sm.. sure, i will read them once u are done@

  15. hey i would have appreciate you if you would have been bit sensible towards victims!! Justifying flee of Anderson by blaming politician and bureaucrats would not help.Just because C.E.O. cant have a closer look on all the operations does not mean he is not responsible for the damage. e.g. if a father is not taking care of child major possibility is he/she may spoil and may cause damage to family or himself. same as C.E.O. is the most responsible person in such a scenario. If company is running high the credit goes to leader & later to his team but why he is shy in case of negligence. The reason behind negligence is lax attitude of top management. Success of company depends on senior management and their capabilities that's why they are paid so high as compare to workers and managers.i would like to see all responsible person behind bars may be it is anderson or any politician or any one under the sun.

  16. @sumit.. The board of directors of UCIL consisted of many representatives from the govt. Why havent they been implicated and why the non executive chairman keshub mahindra is in jail?. lets take some recent happenings into consideration.. the rail derailment by naxalities.. Why isnt the railways minister in jail or for that matter the prime minister.. If CEO can be responsible why arent they..In the satyam scam why isnt the industries minister responsible.In the mumbai terrorist attack how come the home minister is not responsible..or in the NY twin tower attack how is bush not responsible..just explain me the difference between the head of a country and head of a company in terms of responsibility.. give a valid reply and i will stop blogging.
