Dear Shadab

excuse me, but after going through message a couple of times, I am unable to get at the gist.

>From what I comprehend I think you are trying to suggest some kind of a sting to prove the discrimination with vi by it companies.

Now it is not something concrete like taking bribe to be captured on camera and telecast nationwide.

In fact, keeping employees on contract and terminating them at will is not contrary to any existing regulations on the private sector.

Contract employment is a part and parcel of private sector nowadays.

Even if we assume that only vi employees are being kept on contract and not confirmed, it is extremely difficult to establish it beyond doubt let alone capture it on camera.

as is said earlier, corporates do know sophisticated ways of avoiding legal trap like giving breaks/terminating contract and re-negotiating it with same person.

It is what is called "hire and fire" policy in west, and adequate social security or stringent  regulations may put forward the solution.

Dear Harish sir and others:

Thank you for your emails.

Agreed in order to "prove candidly discrimination is Practiced" is
very difficult but not impossible. I have a plan which would look
childish - however I am confident that if anyhow we managed this then
our target will fell as a house of cards. Besides this, I presume that
we do not have enough options either.

In the recent passed I heard a bit of the programme "Citizen
Journalist" on CNN-IBN English. To give a sketchy outline - the foul
play is recorded in a camera by the common folks and sent to the
channel which they broadcast (understandably after the approval of the

I understand that for us gathering a proof like this will be a
Herculean task, but we can do this by arranging a rendezvous for this
covert shooting. This, I feel, should not entrap only a single
company; but we have to hunt down several preys because if we targeted
only a single company then others would become vigilant and after that
reaching them will be beyond us.

I have repeatedly said that being handicaps we deserve more than
others from the nation. Mr Subramani has rightly pointed out that we
do not have a strong votebank and therefore we are being pushed aside.
Let us use this weakness as our strongest point, because this will let
others know that how Praetorian the Indian realpolotik is.

We will need a lot of money to arrange for trained cameramen etc. in
which the Human Rights firms might help us because if we put our
project before them, they will feel that they will earn a lot of fame
in helping the disables. They will come in the limelight because this
will be an operation which will not only push the emotional button,
but since never has such an operation engineered so it would grab the
freedom of minds of the whole nation. Government also bestows a lot of
prizes on such initiatives - though this would be a bit skirting from
what I said earlier - but anyhow, it is so.

I am sorry if my plan is airy-fairy. But by the list postings I
presumed that there isn't any shrewd plan coming up so I thought I
might wrongly make a little difference.
