Namaskar and Season’s Greetings.
I am in receipt of above notice. Pl. note that govt bodies are made to help improve life, living, conditions of citizens .
Everyone in media, BMC and government are aware that there are over 15000 buildings in falling conditions or where beloved citizens of so called modern and free India are staying in pathetic condition.
Every other day we hear of death of precious lives in building collapse. Sir, if one of your own was to die that way and you were at the helms of affair then on that death how much will u b shattered.
And Sir, ur corporation is richest, biggest, is manning the largest and biggest metro, supposed to have best brains and best skills and are also highly paid ( not to speak how much everyone makes ) but have no heart , no vision, no mission , no concern on such a burning issue. Mumbai Municipal corporation takes a matter of falling building so lightly and routinely.
I say redevelopment is only the only answer and is good for all be it government, BMC , tenants.
But instead of that BMC is sending a routine notice, and threatening owners and occupiers with dire consequences like imprisonment?
- Sir tone down the language of your notice.
- Sir, instead of threatening and still leaving buildings unattended in ruinous condition call meeting of all owners and occupiers to your office and educate them. Pl. do not treat yourselves as victorian British white officers and illtreat us as black Indian dogs who can be shooed and if raise voice then can be shot.
- I do not know which kind of dragons have drafted all these acts which are empowering rulers like never before and just with a notice so harshly , with so many weird sections invoked are sent without trying to have atleast one heart to heart dialogue. Sir I am a slave of BMC and its acts and actions. Free me.
- Sir you are asking for propping up. the building. You and your seniors must have gone to foreign countries several times on official, unofficial and sponsored tours, Which country you saw thousands of buildings in ruinous condition ?
- You have referred to various sections but did not give even gist of same. Neither u hv given links to these sections, your letter does not bear any email id where I can ask for contents of these sections nor your letterhead bears any website address. Sir , are we living in stone age ???? But your number of cars, palatial cabins and house and costly mobile and passport with so many stamps says as if you are living in world best city / country.
- sir, ur letter does not offer any details of when and where to contact and that we will b able to find u on ur seat and that v will be given any assistance. Sir U r bulling us instead of treating us as taxpayer equals.
- Sir, if we file for any request with your office we may not get any reply for months, your projects are never completed in time , your institution is never even near to perfect but you have given me notice of 30 days or you can send me to jail ????? Sir u r raja and I am slave, sir, you honour , his highness,
- Osho says not everyone has ATMA. I am sure you dont have. So send your stooges to attack me, my institutions and do all sorts of witch hunting but I will like to die then live any more as a slave. In my life I hv seen bootleggers, illegal structure developers, land sharks, law breakers , unlicensed businessman, scamsters rising to heights but I am where I was thanks to my father who taught me to be like that but he died without fighting atrocities in one room , without car and without his own office. But I shall die fighting the menace and atrocities.
Sir ji, U ask me to carry out this costly work immediately! Sure u think I am loaded with funds like most of those in Govt on sr. post. Sir here my condition is that I am delaying my eye treatment for long and on the top I have marriage of my two marriageable age children. Sir this building has paid you for 72 years the tenants have made fortune for 6 to 7 decades. Why not both of you give some contribution from the money made from this building for 7 decades.
- Sir , If tenants and you contribute 50% then I shall try to collect remaining 50% from known sources and banks my contribution but for which I need a reasonable time to gather bits and paisa
Sir, I with folded hand request to see the condition of falling and crumbling buildings with human eyes and find good solution forever and bring an end to falling buildings and deaths it causes.
We are awaiting further action/ advise as per noble man.
Kindly do the needful.
