103 Years Of Justice Party

November 20 (1916)

It was on this historic day, 103 years ago, the foundation was laid by three leaders of the Dravidian Movement under the banner of South Indian Liberal Federation, popularly called as Justice Party, for the development of Dravidians (non-brahmins) in Tamil Nadu.

The poor people belonging to Dravidians find it to stay and to pursue their college studies in Chennai. They were barred from staying and dining in the hotels run by brahmins. This was the condition at the beginning of the 20th century in Tamil Nadu.

Dr.C.Natesan, a practicing as a Doctor in Triplicane, Chennai single-handedly started the ‘Dravidian Association” and also the “Madras Dravidian Association” and through that, the “Dravidian Home” at Akbar Sahib Street, Triplicane, Chennai in July 1916 for the Dravidian (non-brahmin) students to stay and study in Colleges.

It will be worth mentioning that Sir R.K.Shanmugam, the first Finance Minister of the Indian Republic, S.Subramanyam, the Judge of High Court, T.M.Narayanasamy, Vice-Chancellor of Annamalai University, all of them stayed in the Dravidian Home founded by Dr.C.Natesan.

Sir Pitty Theyagarayar and Dr.Taravath Madhavan (Dr.T.M.Nair) understood that then Congress party is dominated by the brahmins of South India and doing injustice to the Dravidians. They kept aloof from the activities of Congress. But the “Home Rule” movement started against the interests of the Dravidians (non-brahmins) forced the non-brahmin leaders to oppose that movement.

These two leaders were at loggerheads in the Madras Corporation Council and Dr.C.Natesan mediated with them to bring about a rapprochement. Sir Pitti Theyagarayar and Dr.Taravath Madhavan gave up their personal conflicts and came together for a great cause of Dravidian empowerment.

On 20 November 1916, Dr.C.Natesan, Sir Pitty Theyagarayar and Dr.Taravath Mathavan along with about thirty prominent non-Brahmin leaders met in Victoria Public Hall, Chennai and established the South Indian People's Association (SIPA) to publish English, Tamil and Telugu newspapers to publicise grievances of non-Brahmins.. The meeting also formed the "South Indian Liberal Federation" (SILF) as a political association. Later, the association came to be popularly called the "Justice Party", after the English daily Justice published by it.

Let us remember and pay our respects to these founder leaders of the Dravidian Movement who devoted their life to the development of the Dravidians (non-brahmins) in the then Madras Presidency. At a time when the brahmin dominance is spreading its octopus with more force and power across the country, the role played by these leaders of the Dravidian movement has to be cherished and pursued by us.

Karunanidhi

NO elected State Chief Minister (in power or out of power) in India will ever dare to get into a open confrontation with the Indian Army.

NOT even in Kashmir valley.
NOT even in Manipur or Nagaland.
No politician will dare. But Kalaignar Karunanidhi did it. He breached the most important military protocol.

Chief Minister M Karunanidhi made sure that there was no one in Madras city, India to welcome the Indian Army troops returning from Sri Lanka in 1990 because of the gross human rights violations committed by the Indian Army on Sri Lankan Tamil civilians in its capacity as the Peace Keeping Force in Sri Lanka.

Such was the Dravidian valour of M Karunanidhi and such was his love for Tamil people.

The Indian Army was deeply hurt. It took it as the greatest insult in its history. For the next 3 generations till date, hatred for M Karunanidhi has become an institutional learning for the Officer class in the Indian Armed Forces.

Talk to any White Thread Savarna Army Officer (retired or serving) and you will realise the extreme contempt they hold for M Karunanidhi.
Here is Colonel (Retd) Ajit Bhinder tweeting on the day of M Karunanidhi's death so that Twitter doesn't mourn the passing away of the Dravidian statesman.

A lifelong warrior for Eelam Tamils of Sri Lanka, M Karunanidhi is being falsely accused and casteistly abused by the very people whose liberation and progress he dedicated all his life based on venomous rumours from WhatsApp university.

Just look at the extreme level of hatred over M Karunanidhi on the internet, Big Media and everywhere else.
All that has happened in these 10 years (Sri Lankan Civil War ended in 2009), is toxic poison injected into the general public in every medium possible against M Karunanidhi.

The very Dravidian youth in India (first generation college graduates) who should be thanking M Karunanidhi for empowering them through Social Justice schemes against 2000 yr Manuwaadi oppression, are instead abusing him so badly because they believe M Karunanidhi killed 150000 Tamils in Sri Lanka based on Facebook and WhatsApp rumours.

Anyone with a little bit of conscience will know that M Karunanidhi is NOT at all the reason for the death of 150000 Sri Lankan Tamils in the 2009 Sri Lankan Civil War between the Sinhalese Buddhist Supremacist Govt and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.

But everyone keeps quiet when thousands and thousands (or should we say lakhs??) of Tamil youth in India are brainwashed in every type of medium possible that M Karunanidhi killed 150000 Tamils in Sri Lanka.

Everyone who is mute in this gross crime is equally culpable as the Casteist Forces that want to exploit this rumour to the very hilt.

Because M Karunanidhi alone is not the target in this massive smear campaign.
M Karunanidhi is the political manifestation of the Dravidian Movement.
The Dravidian Movement is the REAL target.

Is it really so hard to see through this simple thing???

You know what your heart says.

Non-Immigrant Truth

Due to a screw up with my “employer” I earn money to do nothing.

https://old.reddit.com/r/confession/comments/bhayt8/due_to_a_screw_up_with_my_employer_i_earn_money/
The title is inaccurate. I didn’t earn anything. I am paid. You’ll see why shortly.
No one knows what I do. I don’t know what I do. I do nothing. All day long.
I’m “confessing” this because I don’t know where else to tell my story, and I’ve never told anyone anything ever. Not even family.
What prompted this, is I received a new iPhone that I didn’t order in the mail, with unlimited high bandwidth data. I also got a certificate stating I had ten years of loyal corporate service with a particular Fortune 100 company, and now eligible for something like five weeks of paid vacation a year, not counting numerous corporate perks for key employees like myself.
I’m a corporate drone who keeps his head down. I’m invisible.
I haven’t been to the office in eight years.
It started at my old company when they melted down and went bankrupt and absorbed by a competitor, so they laid me off and paid me to keep my mouth shut about the 2006 nonsense.
I went and got a new job; it’s doing drone like corporate work in financial services. Then three amazing coincidences happened. I didn’t know it at the time, but they were under investigation for some slightly fraudulent things that was in the news, just standard financial nonsense in the industry.
So they had fired a ton of people to clean house, changed some protocols to make the Feds happy, which is why I was contracted. After contracting for awhile, they laid off more people, and I was “forced” to roll permanent, which I hate. Rolling perm means less money, but I figured this company would melt down too shortly, so why not.
So I went perm, and the person who hired me was fired that week, and second, everyone but me on the team was fired, and third whatever we did was being done by automation or absorbed by others. So I didn’t have a lot to do. I had a lot of dotted line type bosses, since what I used to do affected a lot of departments, but I didn’t do any actual “work”, and no one asked me to do anything.
The division was spun off into its own billion dollar concern, then absorbed back into the parent company, to keep the liability levels down when Johnny Law gets curious. Each time, they give out stock grants or give tender offers above the current value, and like a good corporate drone I keep maxing out my employee stock profit share whatever thing to buy company stock at a discount so each time I come out well. I max out my 401k. I have every benefit that’s offered.
Since I was bored and had nothing to do, I would do odd jobs for other groups. Then that got automated, but somehow I’d get the credit as somehow being involved in it.
With all the layoffs and mergers anyone that knew me has been removed, arrested, jumped ship, or been laid off. I think the whole place has been taken over by an AI system and there are no more humans. I honestly have no idea. I’ve written glowing annual performance reviews and rated myself as horrible to see what would happen. I’ve written haikus in the “additional comments” section, but it’s always the same COLA annual delta regardless.
I started “working” from home often. Then stopped showing up entirely. No one noticed or said anything. I would ignore meetings just to see what would happen. Nothing.
I just went on vacations, a three day weekend here and there. Then travelled around the world a half dozen times. Nothing, just regular direct deposits kept coming. A healthy 401k match, nice stock options. W2 at the end of the year. Tons of standard corporate perks. I just moved $250k into bonds to hedge against some emerging market investments. I’ve earned none of it.
I’ve basically retired from a career I never had. I’m hoping I continue to get paid after I’m dead.
When people ask what I do, I usually tell them I’m unemployed. I don’t know how to answer the question. On official forms I say I’m a “consultant”. People assume I won the lottery or deal drugs, as I am always available to do things and travel a lot.
I wanted to buy a condo so I got a second job for a year. I bought my condo for cash. Now I have fewer bills and save even more money. All from working hard doing nothing.
In all the “employer” has paid out over two million dollars in salary and benefits for me to use their iPhone and bandwidth to binge watch Netflix and porn. I’m writing this on it now from a bar off Times Square on a “vacation”. I started drinking at 10:30am.
I have no idea where my employee badge is and would need FBI forensics to locate it. If found I wouldn’t use it, for fear of it triggering questions. If I do anything it might expose my “crimes” and I’ll be found out.
So no one was murdered, I didn’t cheat on a wife, and this is barely a “confession” other than I’m a useless corporate weasel sucking off the corporate tit. I’m not even sure they could sue me to get their money back as they never told me to do anything.
I get paid $120,000 a year and do nothing. My life is meaningless.

Edit: for those who think this is made up, I don’t know what to say. I can’t (and won’t) prove it, and not even sure how I would do so. This isn’t meant to slam some /r/hailcorporate type nonsense, some subtle stab at capitalism, or any of that shilling. I really do nothing. They keep sending me phone upgrades and I check my email once a week or so, and all I have is the standard corporate dross one gets at large businesses, message from the CEO and that crap.
It was a comedy of errors where I did something on the periphery of everyone but never had anything to do.
As a parallel, and not what I did, imagine you did Linux helpdesk support. Then they switch to using Windows, but to maintain “something” you needed to have a Linux support person on staff, so you keep them around but they do something else, now subtract the “something else”. Now manage a resource that has nothing to do but you can’t fire them. Sort of like that.
As far as the “legal” issues, I do 100% of the tasks assigned to me, which are zero. I don’t see how I’m doing anything fraudulent. I’m not shirking my responsibilities, I’m given none. It’s not my job to seek out things to do.
I asked /r/legaladvice and this was their opinion.
https://old.reddit.com/r/legaladvice/comments/bhcngs/newyorkemployment_law_i_do_nothing_and_get_paid/
So reddit’s Legal firm thinks I’m ok. For what it’s worth. .
Edit2: awarded a silver for confessing that I do nothing for six figures. What? Too cheap to spring for gold or platinum?

I have become a forgotten employees for a few months at my job.

https://www.reddit.com/r/legaladvice/comments/5psadr/i_have_become_a_forgotten_employees_for_a_few/

This is in Texas.
About a year ago I was "fired" for something I did not do. Basically they thought I was stealing from the company and had me fired in the system before they informed me in person.
When they caught the real thief, literally 5 minutes before I got the axe, I got called into HR where they apologized to me profusely and told me they would be working to reinstate me without losing my tenure or my vacation time. They asked me if there was anything they could do in the mean time. I asked for the vacation right then and there which made HR real happy because me being gone for 2 weeks made it easy for them to unfuck the situation.
While on vacation I broke my leg and was wheelchair bound for a month. When I informed HR of this they offered me the satellite office for temporary use since it was literally one block away and I could get there safely using my wheelchair.
The company had a satellite office close to my house that was basically just 2 rooms. One had a desk power socket and internet access and the other was the bathroom. The office was purchased for an exec who was wheelchair bound because of cancer. The office stayed empty for a few months when her cancer went terminal and eventually she passed on. When I was offered it they moved my PC and everything out there getting me set up.
That was the last time I have had any face to face with anyone in the company. Even after my leg healed I did not return to the normal building. I stayed in the office until HR wanted to move someone else in.
Well that never came. Five months ago my department was shuttered. My boss, several employees, and a few other management people were quietly let go. Some kind of thing happened at the top that caused a lot of people to be let go. By this time I was pretty much using the office as a second home and had not had any real contact with anyone outside of emails and the occasional phone call.
Once this happened I was just coming in to work everyday completing my tasks until they stopped coming. Then I just came in every day waiting until the hammer fell. It never did.
I have been coming in every single day, walking since its only a 5 minute walk unless its raining, hooking up my gaming laptop and hopping on discord with my friends to play. Sometimes I will bring my ps4 or xbone into the office and play that too.
I have been using this office and collecting a paycheck for the last 5ish months with no contact other than the company wide emails and former coworkers of mine calling me asking how things are going. To put it into context of how much I have stopped caring, when I told my girlfriend about my job situation she came to visit me at work. I will keep it G rated here for you guys and will let you use your imaginations as to the nature of her visit. I do not state this to brag but merely to pain the picture of how things are at my current "job"
All of this brings us to today. I have been using my free time to also study for several PC certs and have finally acquired them. I am getting job offers for a few places that will be a pretty big step up from my current position.
What are the pros and cons of taking the new jobs without "quitting" my first job? I know that technically I am currently in the clear legally. But I want to know if that changes if I start working at another job and collecting two paychecks? I am guessing very much yes but wanted to know more. Does the situation change if one of the companies allows me to work from home and I use my office to work at both jobs?
Yes I know I am being incredibly greedy but I am legitimately wondering here cause its like a very lucky situation I find myself in and it would be a complete waste to throw it away without a good reason. As in I could get in legal trouble is a very good reason to throw it all away and work at the new job.

https://www.reddit.com/r/legaladvice/comments/8qmayg/update_i_am_a_forgotten_employee_who_has_been/

I post this a year ago.
Since that time I got denied for the second job and basically been coasting by until I landed another position and turned in my two weeks notice.
Recently I found a position at a tech firm that will allow me to work from home, is easier than what I used to do, and pays more. Basically tired of doing nothing even though Im getting paid for it.
The day after I mailed the keys to the satellite office back to the corporate office I got a phone call exactly at 8 AM. The head of HR for the former company wanted to speak with me in person. I asked her if there were any issues such as equipment that was not returned. She stated that there were no issues like that. They just had some questions about my job function over the last year.
I told her that they should have that information as head of HR and promptly disconnected stating I had to return back to work. She called back at 12:05 exactly.
I have been ducking her calls ever since. Her voicemails state that I am required to come into her office to discuss a few things. My emails with her have asked if there is anything that needs to be returned or issues with company property. Each time I am assured it is nothing like that, but that they need me to come into their office to discuss this with me in person. She calls at least once per day.
I am thinking I just need to ignore her until she either escalates or goes away.
How incredibly bad is that plan? Before anyone says it. I know... I know ok I should have quit a long time ago. I did not.
