Review : Madras Merchants Life and Times 0
While there are many fiction books in India, there is relatively less information on the business practices and ethics in India in the last few decades , working conditions. The book Madras Merchants Life and times by K.R.N Menon is a reflection of indian businesses in the post independence period. K.R.N Menon was born in a relatively privileged family with his father having a flourishing accounting practice in Ceylon now Sri Lanka. After studying for some time in Madras he managed to persuade his father to send him to study at Christchurch College in Oxford, England.
However discrimination against those who are not locals, especially Indians increased in Sri lanka after the british left the country, and his father was forced to sell his accounting practice at a relatively young age of 53 and return to India, to settle in Bangalore. K.R.N.Menon also returned to India, and got a job in Best & Co, which ran an agency business representing many foreign and indian companies through out the country, as it had a large number of branch offices. The company was selling a wide range of products ranging from pharmaceuticals to industrial products like roofing. He worked mainly in sales, and was also responsible for ensuring that all the customers paid for items that they had ordered.
With hard work and relatively privileged background K.R.N Menon got promoted rapidly in the hierarchy at Best & Co and became a director at the relatively young age of 35. However in the 1970’s corruption levels in India increased rapidly, and also the internal politics in Best & Co. One day after returning from leave, K.R.N. Menon found that he had been stripped of all responsibilities except personnel. So after some time, he decided to resign from his job at the young age of 41 and start his own management consultancy Aarjay management pvt ltd.
In India intelligence and security agencies are ruthless in harassing, defaming, cheating and exploiting those who do not have a job, however they ignore the fact that in India most of the jobs are for younger people , there are relatively few opportunities for middle aged individuals who are 40 or older> Many companies are offering VRS after 40 years and many of the other jobs available for middle aged people, do not pay very well. There are only a limited number of jobs available in the top management and there is a lot of competition, so those who are well connected or have other advantages will get a better deal.
K.R.N.Menon’s wife Jaya was from the Travancore royal family, and owned a fairly large amount of property in Madras. So after he resigned from the job, K.R.N.Menon decided to develop the property, so that his family would have a passive source of income. It again highlight the problems of those who do not have a government job with pension, after they retire, they should have some source of passive income, in case they are not able to get any work .
It again shows how ruthless,inhuman, cruel and greedy indian intelligence, security and cbi officials are, stealing the retirement savings of twenty years of single woman engineers, including this website owner without a court order or legally valid, hysterically repeating allegations that they are a security threat like parrots, without any kind of proof at all. Most indian citizens do not have any property, yet fraud officials are making fake allegations to enjoy lifetime FREE SEX with google, tata sponsored call girl R&AW employees sunaina, siddhi, getting a monthly government salary for their relatives, friends and associates
The indian media is ignoring the endless atrocities of the indian intelligence and security agencies who are stealing the hard earned money of harmless indian citizens without a court order or legally valid reason, falsely claiming that they are a security threat, ignoring the fact that there are limited opportunities for middle aged citizens in India to make any money, and also their medical expenses will be higher than young people.
It is particularly scandalous how powerful shamelessd NTRO officials from top engineering colleges like j srinivasan , puneet, vijay allegedly bribed by google, tata are falsely claiming that lazy greedy inexperienced goan sex workers slim westernized goan obc bhandari slut sunaina chodnekadr, 2013, goan gsb fraud 2012 diploma holder siddhi mandrekar, who offer SEX bribes to these miserly fraud SEX starved indian government employees, nayanshree hathwar, riddhi nayak, were their btech 1993 ee classmate, have the investment of their female classmate to get the goan SEX workers R&AW jobs with monthly salary. In India in 2016, google, tata sponsored SEX worker R&AW employees sunaina, siddhi mandrekar do not have to work for years to save money or get any experience, if they have regular recreational SEX with top CBI, NTRO, security agency officials, the indian government will falsely their SEX worker R&AW employee with no non SEX experience, no savings have the investment of the woman who the sex partners of these call girls are defaming
In 2016, the indian had started a campaign to encourage, reward SEX workers, cheater housewives and other frauds wasting tax payer money to pay them a monthly salary, giving them a monthly R&AW salary with fake resume, fake investment and fake work. The call girl reward program of the indian government is again highlighted because fraud ntro, google, tata officials will falsely claim that their puppet goan call girl R&AW employees slim westernized goan obc bhandari slut sunaina chodnekar ,goan gsb fraud siddhi mandrekar, sex specialists, own the website, and are writing content, when these lazy greedy mediocre tata, google sponsored CALL GIRL R&AW employees do not do any work, and do not spend any money online on domains at all, yet shamelessly and greedily want to claim credit, and get a monthly indian government salary
This book is a good read about the uncertainty in the life of a professional working in a private company who does not get any pension or benefits after leaving the job.
