PMC (PUNJAB AND MAHARASHTRA BANK)

We talk about corruption but suggest nothing to solve.
The Sikh community has made the first move in this regard. We are aware that Gurudwaras offer free food to anyone. Sikhs enjoy cleaning shoes of people coming to a gurudwara, it is probably the only community in the world having zero beggars, their bravery is legendary.
PMC (PUNJAB AND MAHARASHTRA BANK), the mouthpiece of Sikh community in the banking sector, has recently gone bankrupt. It had branches all over the country. The Bank was primarily managed by Affluent Sikhs. It was a cooperative bank. In advances, they had given more than 10,000 crores to bogus parties without any securities. Thousands of people, who had faith in them, who had Deposits, lost. . .
Sikh Gurudwara Prabandhak Sabha, which manages all Gurudwaras in Mumbai, unanimously passed a resolution to throw out all the eight Sikh directors & their families from the community. They cannot have any relations with community and cannot enter any Gurudwara. No Sikh will welcome them in house or business. This includes their family. This is the highest insult to any Sikh. As directors, they failed in upholding people’s faith. This is the harshest punishment a society can give to an individual. All Gurudwara’s of the country, have been requested to follow and give no entry to any of them, including their families.
Please note that each individual director is a rich man and with a lot of influence in society. Still, they could not save themselves from the boycott society imposed on them.
If all communities of our country follow, individuals will be afraid to be cut off from the society and that can put the lid on corruption.
Hats off to Sikhs, to show the way to the country. They have fought many battles, this is the first civil war in society. Others have to learn a lot from them.
👍👍👍👏👏👏

A Woman walks into a butchery shop just before closing time and asks, “Do you still have chicken?”

A Woman walks into a butchery shop just before closing time and asks, “Do you still have chicken?”

The butcher opens his deep freezer, takes out his only chicken left and puts it on the weighing scale. It weighs 1.5 kg. 🐓

The woman looks at the chicken and at the scale and asked, “Do you have one that’s a bit bigger than this one?”

The butcher puts his only chicken back into the freezer, and then takes it out again. But this time when he puts it on the scale, he craftily keeps his thumb on the scale pan. And the scale now shows 2 kg.

“That’s wonderful,” said the woman. “I’ll take both of them, please!”

In a situation like this, you realize at once that your integrity and reputation are firmly on the line. Your wisdom becomes foolishness, and your cunningness becomes stupidity.

Until now the butcher has his head inside the big deep freezer, looking for the first chicken. 😄

Remember:

  1. Always tell the truth, and you will be free!!!
  2. A good name is better than riches.
  3. Live to express yourself, and not to impress others.
