Satyam Shivam Ramalingam

Interesting strings of Satyam mocks running the rounds of emails these past few days:

Raju Raju sat on the wall
Raju Raju had a great fall
Balance sheet died
Shareholders cried
Raju Raju made a fraud

Raju Raju
Yes baba
Cheating us?
No baba
Telling Lies?
No baba
Open the balance sheet

And this very apt graphical illustration ...

What all these fail to depict is the trauma that so many people must be going through because of the entire incident : a) the 53000 odd employees b)Multitudes of shareholders c)The Shivalingam family ... Family, they say is the most innocent yet most severely punished. And although you might be educated and mature enough not to translate the wrong-doings of someone to his near and dear ones; somewhere at the back of the mind, there is always a suspicion and immediate loss of trust for everyone associated to the miscreant ... Afterall, blood is thicker than water !

One of the faculty members very aptly put forward the point in a course on ethics - No Name, No Fame ... probably the reason why sanyaasis let go of their names before their journey in the search of Moksha. The discussion stemmed from debates over the book Yuganta by Irawati Karwe - quite a good read for someone who likes to find rationality in religion.
