ABC FRAUD IN THE HINDU – Since 2004 A 12 YEAR MASTERMIND WEB OF DECEIT, LIES , DECEPTION AND CHEATING
A SHOCKING INTERNAL WHISTLEBLOWER’S “TELL ALL” FIRST HAND WITNESS ACCOUNT DEPOSITION
PROLOGUE 11.07.2016 An Open Letter to All Stakeholder Members of ABC’s , Council Of Management, Publishers, Advertising Agencies, Advertisers, Empanelled Auditors, News Agencies, and allied Organisation & Government Publicity Depts . Dear ABC Member, THE MOTHER OF ALL FRAUDS – “WILFUL FRAUD” As You Are About To Start Your ABC Audit Process For ABC 2016 1st Half, I An Internal Whistleblower Am Raising A Very Sensitive But Serious Industry Impacting Issue Of FRAUD Of The SFO Order, The Expose Deposition Of Which Could “Set the Cat among the Pigeons”, On A Frankenstein Monster Of An Industry Impacting Issue ,Which Will Need to be Immediately Addressed By ABC as a Regulatory Body, On Something Which Is Fundamentally WRONGDOING Procedurally, Ethically, Morally, Legally – Which Has Been Transpiring and Conspiring Within The Hindu, Since As Way Back as 2004, Which Can Only Be Termed “WILFUL FRAUD”. Oxford English Dictionary Defines The word WILFULAs : 1) Of a bad or harmful action done deliberately although the person doing it knows it is wrong, Something which has been done on purpose, which is Premeditated, Planned, Calculated.
2) Determined to do what you want not caring about what people want, Headstrong, Self-Willed, With a will of One’s Own, Determined To Have One’s Own Way, Obstinate, Stubborn, Obstreperous, Ungovernable,
Contumacious, Pervicacious. Welcome to “ THE SATYAM FRAUD OF THE HINDU ” Where It would be shocking to know that , India’s Most Respected and Reputed Newspaper Groups THE HINDU, A Temple Of Values Turned Den of The Underworld Criminal Values, Have for the last 12 Years, Been Contemptuously CHEATING In the Sly, Involved In The Most Reprehensible , Disgusting And Disgraceful “Fly By Night And Fraudulent Practices”, Where They Have Not only Breached The Lakshman Rekha’s Between Acceptable And Unacceptable, But Impudently and With Impunity, Broken The Law Of The Land, In A Mad Obsessive Rat Race Of Deceit, Deception and Downright Fraud, “TO PRESENT” The Circulation They So Want, At Whatever Cost, Through Whatever Means, Stooping To Whatever Levels, Whatever It Takes, Including, Faking Circulation, Fudging, Falsifying, Forgery, Cheating, Counterfeiting, Cooking Up The Statutory ABC Documents, To CLAIM CERTIFICATION For The Circulation They So Will and Want, In A Diabolical Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy , Amounting to “An Organised Crime” and “An Organised Fraud Scam” Racket, ALL Towards “Fast Tracking” READER, READERSHIP, REVENUE Numbers - The RADHI and RACKETEERING Route -, Where MEANS, METHODS, MORALS Did not seem to Matter AT ALL, In A Mad Obsession For ONEUPMANSHIP,
And To Be ONE UP On COMPETITION – The
FAKING And FRAUD Way .
Welcome To The Hindu IPL T20 “CIRCULATION LAUNDERING” Fixers League Scam Racket . Welcome To “The Hindu’s Satyam Fraud” , Welcome To The Hindu’s CIRCULATION GATE. HOW
12 YEAR MULTI DIMENSIONAL CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY CASE .
I, Murali Krishnan, The Whistleblower , Wish to introduce myself as a Veteran Circulation Foot soldier, Who grew Up the Ranks In Circulation Department Of THE HINDU right From the Grass root Level in The Early Circulation Ropes In The Market Place,
80’s, Who Learnt The
As “A Hands On” CIRCULATION
FOOTSOLDIER Selling And Studying The Hindu And Customer Behavior, Growing From A Sales Representative To The Top Leadership Position Of Regional Manager And Printer Head Of Kochi Edition Of The Hindu Through sheer HARD And HONEST WORK, Having Grown Up The Circulation Ranks
over A Lifetime
25+Years Of “SELLING THE HINDU” The SUBSCRIPTION Way, BELIEVING That CIRCULATION, At Its Very CORE BASICS , Is About READER And READERSHIP, Where To Me An Insightful Reader Of The Game And Business, FUNDAMENTALLY Once Your CORE FUNDAMENTALS Are Strong, Long Term Success And Stability, Brand Building, Revenues And Runaway Profits For The Publishing Group
Are Bound To Follow , With Long Term Prosperity
GUARANTEED For The Publishing Group Built Around Strong FUNDAMENTALS And FOUNDATION Of “READER ORIENTED CIRCULATION”. As AN INSIGHTFUL “STUDENT” Of CIRCULATION, Who Has Been SEARCHING And RESEARCHING “ CIRCULATION For A Lifetime 25+ Years, I Proved This FUNDAMENTAL TRUTH , With My PATH BREAKING Experiment And Experience As Regional Head Of Kochi Edition And Printing Unit Of The Hindu From 1997 To 2005, That FUNDAMENTALLY If We Focus On Subscriber And Service To Subscriber, Reader And Readership , And Work Steadfastly Towards READER ORIENTED CIRCULATION, Then REVENUES In Crores And Crores, 19
Are Bound To Follow, Where As A PRINCIPLE , I Never Believed In “RADHI And RACKETEERING”,
Simply Because It Is Against “THE TRUE SPIRIT” Of
CIRCULATION , And Good Old CIRCULATION VALUES Of The 20th Century . To Me A HARDCORE “CIRCULATION MAN”, Circulation Is Not About RADHI And RACKETEERING, As FUNDAMENTALLY When THE HINDU Newspaper Which Should Reach THE READER Reaches The Doorstep Of “THE RADHI WASTEPAPER MERCHANT” Before The Crack Of Dawn, It Is Downright CHEATING,
Amounting To WILFUL FRAUD, Where At Its Core You Are
CHEATING, Not Just Your Readers, Revenue Generating Advertisers, And Regulators By MISREPRESENTING FACTS AND FIGURES, But We Ourselves, As An Individual, Institution And Industry , Where We Fail To Be Worthy Of Being Called HUMAN BEINGS . Simply Put It Is DISGRACEFUL And SHAMEFUL . WATCHDOGS
RACKETEERING . To Me As A Human Being Driven By Conscience, This Is An Inhuman Treachery And A Fundamental Breach Of Trust, Where We Fail To Be Human Beings, Forget About Being Called Heads In SHAME, If
“Professionals”, Where We Need To Hang Our
We Are To
MERCHENTS - Going Against The Soul And Spirit of CIRCULATION , Which Is What “THE 12 YEAR HINDU CIRCULATION SCAM RACKET” Is All About. For Over A Century THE HINDU GROUP Was Known And Renowned For Its STRONG FUNDAMENTALS Of a Massive READER , READERSHIP And REVENUE BASE Model, Strong Enough For The Hindu Group To Pay upto50% Bonus To Their Gigantic Work Force. Consequently The Mighty Hindu Group Enjoyed Unquestionable Market And Monopoly Leadership And Readership In The English Newspaper Business Till The End Of The 20th Century.
THE BEGINNING OF THE END The Whole Problem Started With Major Competition And Challenges Setting In The 21st Century, Where, While The Hindu Groups Balance Sheet And Bottom line Came Under Pressure With The Company Slipping Into Losses in 2002 For The First Time In Its 123 Year History, (Largely Due To MISMANAGEMENT And MISPLACED PRIORITIES), In 2004 The ABC Certification Norms Became Very Stringent With Them Demanding 100% Execution Of ABC Documentation Of Bill Confirmatory Copy Statements And Payment Covering Notes As A Statutory Condition To Certify The Claimed Circulation With The Obvious Intent “To Separate The Wheat From The Chaff”, Genuine From The Fake Circulation. Conventional Wisdom And Saying Is That “ When The Going Gets Tough The Tough Gets Going ”. For Me As An Insightful
Insider Of The Hindu Of 25+ Years, It Was
SHOCKING DISBELIEF To See in The Hindu, Post 2003, A New MAFIA Face, Of “When The Going Gets Tough In Circulation Department Of The Hindu”, Cheats, Crooks, Cooks, Cons, Even Concubines, Counterfeiters, Criminal Fraudsters, Fixing, Faking, Forgery, Fudging, Falsifying Documents and Numbers, managing
Down To stage
The 21st Century, Where MEDIA Turns MAFIA. Welcome To THE DARK UNDERBELLY Of The Hindu. Welcome To THE UNDERWORLD Of The Hindu, Where You are Liquidated MAFIA STYLE IF You Fail To “Toe The Criminal Line”. Simply Put, For Murky Reasons, Not Hard To Visualise or See Through The Diabolic Multi Dimensional
Criminal Conspiracy Plot, UNDER PRESSURE,
SPINELESS And SUSPECT LEADERSHIP In The Radicalised Hindu Of The 21st Century, Buckled Under Pressure Of A Paranoid Fear Of Losing Their Century 21
Old, Market And Monopoly Leadership Status To LOOMING COMPETITION of The Impending Launch Of Chennai Edition Of The Times Of India and Deccan Chronicle, Where They PANICKED And Took To Immoral And Illegal Means And Mafia Methods TO MAKE And FAKE The Circulation They Want, Brazenly And Blatantly FAKING Through The ABC Statutory Documentation And Certification Process, In A CORPORATE FRAUD One Of Its Kind , In Broad Daylight , Where They abominably MISUSED And ABUSED FAITH , TRUST , EXPECTATION , BELIEF , And THE HINDU”S LEGACY VALUES Towards CRIMINAL And CORRUPT ENDS . Taking To MAFIA Means And Methods ,They Stooped To Shameful Levels In Dealing With Competition , Down To Trying To Sabotage Competition By Organising and Orchestrating
“Bundles Of Competitor Dailies
Being Stolen From City
Distribution Points in The Dead Of The Night In A Heist So That Competitor Dailies Cannot Reach Their Subscriber Reader. To Me Who Sweared By BUSINESS ETHICS The Whole Thing Was Simply DISGUSTING And DISGRACEFUL , Where You Are Not Just UNETHICAL But UNLAWFUL. Honestly Speaking, To Me A Die Hard Patriot Employee Loyal To Cause, Commitment, Circulation , Customer, Company, Country And Civil Society At Large, Who Grew Up Upholding Human And The Hindu’s Legacy Values For A Lifetime 25+ Years, To See This New UNDERWORLD And DARK UNDERBELLY Side Of The Hindu Was “ A CULTURE SHOCK”, Where I as A Human Being Who Grew Up Believing In Being Always True To My Conscience, Honestly Did Not Know How To Deal With A Radicalised and Talibanised System In The Hindu Of The 21st Century , Which Expected And Demanded By Cold Blooded Unspoken and Unwritten Edicts And Threats From THE TOP “D-COMPANY” Of AN UNDERWORLD LEADERSHIP In The Hindu Of The 21st Century That You Cheat And Commit Fraud In Circulation Department Of The Hindu, Otherwise Be Prepared To Be Executed – Execution Style, Mafia Style.
Welcome To The Taliban And Mafia Land Of The Hindu, Where Your Choice As A Circulation Man In THE HINDU Is, To Either Toe The Criminal Line Or Be Prepared To Be Executed – Execution Style. As A Person Who Grew Up Practicing The Hindu’s LEGACY VALUES And ETHICAL PRACTICES, Honestly THE HINDU
It Felt As though The 125 Year Old
HIJACKED By A CRIMINAL SYNDICATE
25thSilver Jubilee Year Of Service in The Hindu, Where We Had Criminals Who Behaved like Terrorists, Who Ruled By Terrorising. To Think That Behind This Whole Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Is A HIDDEN AGENDA To Perpetrate , Protect And Perpetuate “THE HINDU ABC FRAUD RACKET”. A Midlife Crisis Of Sorts For A Die Hard Circulation Foot Soldier . Joining The Hindu When I Was Just 20 Fresh Out Of University, After 25+ Years Of Honest Service to CIRCULATION in The Hindu , In 2004/ 2005 I Was Caught In A Very Difficult Choice At The Difficult Age Of 45 Years In A Mid-Sea, Mid Career and Midlife Crisis Of Sorts, Where The “Cold Blooded” Choice Given To Me In The RADICALISED Hindu Of The 21st Century , Was Between “Toeing The Criminal Line” And Facing The Threat Of losing My Cherished Job Of 25 Years, With Shore To Retirement Age A Distant 15 Years Away. Honestly Speaking, For An Uncompromising HUMAN BEING PROFESSIONAL, It Felt Literally like “Being Asked To Walk The Plank – Mid Sea”. Finally As A Person Who Fears His Conscience , I Chose To Listen To My Heart, Head And Conscience And Continue Taking The Straight and Sensible Path, Doing What My KARMA And DHARMA Told Me Do As A KARMAYOGI. On 21st August 2005, I , Murali Krishnan, After A Lifetime 25+ Years Of Special And Selfless Service To The Hindu As An Institution, Was SUMMARILY And ARBITRARILY
The Hindu, EXECUTED – Execution Style By THE CIRCULATION MAFIA In A Diabolic FAKE ENCOUNTER KILLING, Without A Case, Without A Crime, Without a Charge or Even A Charge Sheet, Without Any Credible Trial Process, Without Even Being Heard, And Worst Of All ,With No Right To Appeal, Where My Only Crime Was That I Chose To Listen To My Conscience , Rather Than Toe The Criminal Line Of The Hindu Of The 21st Century . Welcome To The Talibanisation Of The Hindu. Welcome To The Guantanamo Bay Of The Hindu, ABOVE ACCOUNTABILITY, ABOVE REGULATION And ABOVE THE LAW, Where They , THE LAW BREAKERS , Are “THE LAW”. As An Employee You Feel Like A PAWN In A GAME Of GRANDMASTER
“MASTERMIND” N Murali
Overcome By PSYCHOTIC DISEASE Of THE
SEVEN DEADLY SINS Of Hubristic Pride, Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Anger And Sloth, This IS A Huge “Organised Crime” Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Of A Scam Racket, Of Unimaginable Proportions, ALL Towards “PROFITEERING”, By Artificially And Fraudulently PRESENTING The Pre Targeted Circulation Numbers That He Wants, With Particular Focus Agenda On Targeting Major Advertisement Oriented Markets, Centering around Major Towns And Major Cities, Markets That Matter Most, ALL To Boost REVENUES And PROFITS The Fake And Fraudulent Way, With MACHIAVELLIAN, MACHINATION, MERCENERY, MAMMON
And MAFIA Means And
Methods, Where MAN Becomes A MONSTER. This Was A Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy. To Me A Law Abiding Citizen Employee Driven By Customer ,Character, Conscience And Credibility, This Criminal And Corrupt Approach To CIRCULATION NUMBERS In The Hindu The FAKE And THE FRAUDULENT Way Is Unethical, Unbecoming, Unacceptable, Unlawful And Untenable, Which I Refused To Be Party 24
21st August 2006 For no rhyme Or reason. It Was Simply COLD BLOODED MURDER. It Defies Logic And Explanation, How In The World Can Being A Conscientious Law Abiding
Citizen Employee Upholding The Spirit Of
The Law, Be Perceived and Presented As An Act Of Insubordination And Indiscipline, To Be Worthy Of Being SUMMARILY SACKED, After 25 + Years Of Special And Spotless Service To Institution And Institutional Legacy Values. This Was ,Not MISCARRAIGE OF JUSTICE, But Simply MURDER OF JUSTICE . LEGALLY SPEAKING, This Is A Clear Legal Case Of “GROSS MISTREATMENT” And “WRONGFUL DISMISSAL” In Gross Violation Of FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS Of A Law Abiding Citizen Employee, Worthy Of The Hindu Group Being Sued In A Court Of Law And The Human Rights Commission. In A Clear Case Of VICIOUS TARGETTING And VENDETTA WITCH HUNTING
DISMISSED” From The Regional Managers Position, To Add Salt To Injury, To My UTTER DISBELIEF I Was Handed A DOUBLE DEMOTION And Asked To Do A Menial “POSTAL ASSISTANT” Job In The Corporate Office, Where It was Clear That Some Nervous People Involved In The Organised Fraud Racket, Fearing That I Will “Spill The Beans”, Desperately Wanted To Hound Me OUT Of THE HINDU. Clearly I Was “PERSONA NON GRATA” For Being PATRIOTIC, Where A Honest Upright Human Being, Has No Place In “The Mafia World” Of The Hindu Of The 21st Century, After A Lifetime 25+ Years Of Outstanding And Spotless Service To Institution And Industry.
Determined To Get To The Bottom Of THE TRUTH, THE SCAM, THE MAFIA And The Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy, To Have A First Hand Witness “Inside Look” at The Whole Criminal Operation And Expose The Fraud And The Fraudsters I Took Up The “Postal Assistant” Job At Corporate Office in 2005 And Quietly
“The Den Of The Underworld”, For 1 Full Year, What Exactly Is Conspiring And Transpiring Within Criminal Circulation Department Of The Hindu, In The Corporate Office Of The Hindu , And Who All are The Key Conspirators . I Was Simply STUNNED At What I Was First Hand Witness To, On The Sheer Size And Scale Of “The Organised Circulation Scam Racket” In The Hindu, And Seeing Who Are All “The Unseen Faces” Behind The Scam, Who Operate, By Sleight Of Hand and Skullduggery, From The Dark Shadows, In The Shady, The Shadowy, The Scamy, The Seamy And The Sleazy , Where There Is also A Sex angle under current Twist To “This Circulation Scam” . “THE BIG FIVE” Of The Hindu ABC Fraud Racket If And When There Is A SUPREME COURT MONITORED CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION By CBI or CB-CID, With Forensic Support Of FORENSIC EXPERTS From The Department Of Forensic Sciences, The Contextual Hot Trail Of FORENSIC FACTS And EVIDENCE Of The 12 Year Trail Of Underworld Events Will Prove That, If Mr. M R Sivakumar Vice President-Circulation Was THE KINGPIN, Mr.N.Murali The Hindu’s Then Managing Director and The Present Co Chairman Was The Shadowy MASTERMIND Behind This Whole Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Who “Remote Controlled” The Whole Criminal Operation From The Dark Shadows (I As A Whistleblower Have made no bones in Telling This “In Your Face” In My 36 Whistle Blower Petitions To The Hindu Board Members), Where Mr R Varadamani The Associate Vice President-Circulation, Who Officially Headed ABC Operations In The Hindu For 26
12 Years, Was The OPERATIONS HEAD Of The Hindu ABC Fraud Operations For 12 Years, Where He Was ably Assisted In This Criminal Underworld Operation
Mr. K.S.Raghavan, Who Thanks To His Excellent Work In Successfully Executing The ABC Fraud Operations, In Successfully “Hoodwinking” ABC And ABC’s Audit Team For 12 Years, Saw Him Zoom From “An Assistant” Post About A Decade Back To The Present Position Of Sr.Assistant General ManagerCirculation Accounts And ABC Operations.
Beyond This We Have
Mr.N.Krishnan, The Chennai Circulation Head, Who MISUSED His Times Of India Experience In THE UNDERWORLD PLOT In The Hindu To Play A DOUBLE DEALER Role. These Are The Key 5 Players Who Conceptualized And Coordinated The Whole ABC Fraud Criminal Operation During The Course Of The Last 12 Years Who Have With Machiavellian And Machination , Mastered The Art Of ABC FRAUD Through Half Lies ,Deceit And Deception, Where Today As INSIDERS Who Are Familiar With The Inside Workings Of ABC, How The System Works, How To Take Them For A Ride, Where Notably, Mastermind N.Murali was In The Inner Circles Of ABC Council Of Management In The 80’s And 90’s, Where Together, They Know The Inside And Insides, The Loopholes, The Leeways
And The Legalities Of ABC Audit Work And How To
DECEITFULLY And DECEPTIVELY Beat The ABC Audit Rules , Guidelines And Procedures By WHEELING And DEALING, Through MACHIAVELLIAN And
SKULLDUGGERY, Where YOU PRESENT Yourselves To Be POLITICALLY CORRECT, When PRINCIPALLY You Are CRIMINALLY WRONG- Guilty Of WOEFUL WRONGDOING. TOGETHER “The BIG FIVE” Have Master Plotted And Hoodwinked The ABC For 12 Years, So Far. 27
For A NEWSPAPER GROUP, That Too Of The Stature And Standing Of The Hindu Group, It is Criminal Breach Of TRUST To MISUSE And ABUSE Privileged CONSTITUTIONAL POWERS Of FREEDOM OF PRESS And RIGHT TO SELF REGULATION
And CORRUPT ENDS, Raising The
Fundamental Question As To Whether In Crime And Criminality, Is The Hindu And Its Criminal Leadership ABOVE ACCOUNTABILITY, ABOVE ABC AUDIT, And ABOVE THE LAW OF THE LAND. Going By This FARCE And FRAUD In Broad Daylight , Natural Doubt Which Arises Is , Does The Hindu Enjoy RIGHT TO CRIME And RIGHT TO COMMIT ABC FRAUD, Which Is What Seems To Be So, Given That They Have Been Brazenly Doing This For 12 Years , UNCHECKED And UN CHECKED. To Cut This Epic Saga Of A 12 Year Crusade of A Story Short, With The Managing Directors Position “Compromised in The Hindu” , I Murali Krishnan As A Hapless Employee Caught In The Midst A Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Plot Was Under Constant And Continuous Pressure From THE TOP LEADERSHIP To Quit The Hindu, Where After 25+ Years Of Loyal Service, For The Crime Of Refusing To Toe The Criminal Line I Became PERSONA NON GRATA In The Hindu Of The 21st Century, Where Harassed, Humiliated And Hounded I was Driven Into A FORCED RESIGNATION On 16th September 2006, By Which Time My TELL ALL 357 Page WHISTLEBLOWER BOOK Of Explosive TELL ALL Revelations On THE HINDU ABC FRAUDGATE, Was Ready. While I Could Have Turned Whistleblower Outside The Hindu, LOYALTY To An Institution I Selflessly Served For 25+ Years With Uncompromising INTEGRITY, HONESTY
I Thought It My Moral Duty and Obligation To Report THE FACTS And THE FRAUD To THE HINDU’S GOVERNING COUNCIL – THE HINDU BOARD, Where,
18thSeptember 2006, I Sent My 357 Page TELL ALL Whistleblower Petition “Tome Of A Book” Dated 18th September 2006 To All Board Members Of The Hindu (By Registered Post-AD), Including The Mastermind N.Murali “The Two Timing” Managing Director Of The Hindu Who Given His DUBIOUS PRACTICES Appeared To Be A DOUBLE AGENT Playing A DOUBLEGAME, Involved In DOUBLE CROSS, As The Man Lead “A DOUBLE LIFE”. LEGALLY SPEAKING, NOTABLY , My
“Whistleblower Book No1”
Titled THE UNHOLY GRAIL Sent Full 10 Years Back To The Hindu Board on 18th September 2006 (The First In A Massive Series Of A Record 36 Whistleblower Petitions Sent to The Hindu Board Members During The Last 10 Years ) Began With The Very First Chapter Titled “ABC FRAUD In The Hindu”, Where I As The Whistleblower, Devoted As Many As 27 Pages To Give A BLOW BY BLOW “First Hand Witness Testimony Account Deposition ” On THE WHO, HOW, WHY, WHAT, WHEN And WHERE, Of How The Headquarter Of The Hindu, Has Become The Headquarter For CORPORATE FRAUD, And How The ABC Fraud Works In The Hindu , Where I Beseeched The Hindu Board For Immediate INTERVENTION And INDEPENDENT “Third Party” INVESTIGATION Into The Whole Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Centered Around THE HINDU ABC FRAUD Racket . SHAME, SHAMEFULL And THE SHAMELESS –“THE HINDU’S COSY CLUB”
Now It Is Full 10 Years Past Since I An INTERNAL WHISTLEBLOWER Turned WHISTLEBLOWER On “THE HINDU ABC FRAUD GATE”, At The Hindu Board Level, A Board Which Had 9 Board Members In 2006 Where Today They Have 15 Esteemed Board Members Including The WHO’S WHO, From Mr.N.Ram, Mr.N.Murali,
Dr.Nalini Krishnan, Mr.K.Balaji, Mr.K.Venugopal, Mrs.Lakshmi Srinath, Mr.Ramesh Rangarajan, Mrs.Vijaya Arun, Mrs.Akila Vijay Iyengar, Down To A “So Called 29
Professional” CEO In Mr.Rajiv C Lochan, And “So Called Independent Directors” Ms.Vinita Bali of Brittannia Fame And Mr.S.Mahalingam Of TCS Fame, Where Every Single Of Whom Are Today CULPABLE, Guilty of Being Considered COMPLICIT In THE HINDU CIRCULATION GATE, Worthy Of Being Charged And Chargesheeted, In The Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy, As Being Guilty Of STONEWALLING THE SCAM And An INDEPENDENT “ Third Party” INVESTIGATION For A Mindboggling 10 Years, Where They Turned A NELSONS EYE, As They Did AN OSTRICH ACT To An Insider Whistleblower Revelations Of FRAUD , Burying Their Head, The 12 Year Scam, The Truth, The Fraud Racket, And The Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy, Under The Hindu Sand . Fundamental Prosecution Question Which Naturally Arises Is , WHY ARE THEY SCARED OF AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION IF THEY HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE , UNLESS THEY WANT TO SHIELD “THE SCAM” AND “THE MASTERMIND N MURALI” , DUE TO CONFLICT OF INTERESTS AND VESTED INTEREST AGENDAS . It Would Be Shocking To Know That During The Course Of The Last 10 Years, Since 2006 I The Aggrieved Whistleblower Appellant Have Sent As Many As A Mind Blowing 36 Whistleblower Petitions To All The Hindu Board Members, The Who’s Who Of The Hindu, Seeking Immediate INTERVENTION And INDEPENDENT “Third Party” INVESTIGATION Into My Whistleblower Expose Revelations Towards CLEAN UP, COURSE CORRECTION And CLOSURE JUSTICE, Only To Be Met With A STONEWALL OF SILENCE For 10 Years, Raising More Questions Than Answers To A Whole Lot Of MURKY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS Which Demand ANSWERS And ACCOUNTABILITY. After 10 Years Of Stonewalling THE TRUTH – An Inconvenient Truth, Today Much Water Has Flowed Under The Bridge , Where The Kingpin Mr.M.R.Sivakumar Is Dead After A Massive Cardiac Arrest ( Some Say He Committed Suicide In Shock 30
And Shame Following A Circulation Insider Turning Whistleblower To His Blueprint For ABC FRAUD), Leaving “His Partner And Patron” Mastermind N.Murali To Today Face The Music And The Law. NOTABLY In spite Of All My Whistleblower Revelations On The Hindu ABC FRAUD, As A Prosecution Point Towards Reinforcing My Point That This Is A Clear Case Of “WILFUL FRAUD”, Mr.R.Varadamani And Mr.K.S.Raghavan who Headed ABC FRAUD OPERATIONS Since 2004 When It All Began, Even Today , After 12 Years Of My Whistleblower Expose Revelations In 36 Whistleblower Petitions At The Hindu Board Level , NONCHALANTLY , CONTINUE Heading ABC FRAUD OPERATIONS , 10 Years After All My TELL ALL Whistleblower Revelations. Which All Goes To Prove The Brazenness And Blatant Nature Of THE CIRCULATION MAFIA SYNDICATE (Of Which The Hindu Board Seems To Be Part
ACCOUNTABILITY, And Believe That They Are ABOVE ACCOUNTABILITY And ABOVE THE LAW – A LAW UNTO THEMSELVES. What Takes The Cake Of It All, Is That Criminal Fraudster R.Varadamani Who Recently Reached Retirement Age of 60 Years On 31st May 2016 Has Now Been Given An Extension (In A First Of Its Kind In The Hindu Circulation History)As CONSULTANT For Circulation By The “So Called” Professional CEO Mr.Rajiv. C Lochan, At The Obvious Behest Of The Remote Control Operator Mastermind N.Murali, Which Beyond Anything And Everything Indicates The Kind Of DISDAINFUL DISREGARD They Have To Rule Of Law And Regulatory Bodies, Where They Nonchalantly PERCEIVE THEMSELVES As Being A Law Unto Themselves In A Rat Race To Fast Track READERS, READERSHIP And REVENUE NUMBERS The QUICKFIX WAY - The Fake And The Fraudulent Way. Its Absolute Mockery Of A Farce And A Fraud Whatever Has Been Transpiring And Conspiring In The Hindu For The Last 12 Years , Since 2004 . 31
Compounding The Mockery Of A Farce And Fraud , Fraudster R.Varadamani Who Was Officially Anointed As “THE BHEESHMAPITAMAH” Of Circulation (ABC FRAUD) in 2014 , Was Later On In November 2015 HONOURED (By The Present CEO Mr.Rajiv C Lochan ) At The All India Sales Conference With “A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD” Obviously As An Award For A Lifetime Of ABC FRAUD, Where He Successfully Hoodwinked ABC And Its AUDIT For 12 Years. Notably , All This Farce Happened , After All My Whistleblower Revelations In My 36 Whistleblower Petitions To The Hindu Board On The Wrongdoings , Naming The Wrongdoers . Obviously The Ring Leader MASTERMIND N.Murali is The Key And King To This Whole Diabolic Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Plot –The Villain Of The Piece-, Where If He Is Grilled under Intense Interrogation, Made To Undergo The Polygraph Test, The Narco Analysis Test, The Lie Detector Test By CBI Or CB-CID ,The Whole Truth Behind The Diabolic Criminal Conspiracy Will Come Out, And he Will “Sing Like A Canary” On A Diabolical Scam Plot Which Has Shades Of The Shady, The Shadowy, The Seamy and The Sleazy. SHOOTING THE MESSENGER To My Utter Disbelief ,The Only Response I Got From The Hindu Board to My Whistleblower Petition No.1 Dated 18th September 2006, Was A Brazen attempt, In Broad Daylight, To “Shoot The Messenger”, Where The Mafia Managing Director Of The Hindu Sent Me Two Threatening Intimidating Letters Dated 19th October 2006 and 9th November 2006 “ Warning Me , Mafia Style , Of Serious Consequences” If
“A FAKE CASE ” against Me The Whistleblower , With GIVEAWAY , HOLLOW, BASELESS ALLEGATIONS Which Will Be RIPPED And STRIPPED APART, Point By Point, DURING Prosecution Cross Examination, In A Court Of Law Or “A 32
Truth Commission” Enquiry Probe , To Prove My Point That This Is A Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Of Shocking Proportions . As They Say In FORENSIC INVESTIGATION , Every Criminal Does Something Stupid Where He Makes One Mistake Which Leads To His UNDOING Doom And Downfall ,Something Which The Accused Ramkumar Did In The Recent Swathi Murder Case In Chennai . Like Every Criminal, Mastermind N.Murali Too , Did Something Stupid In A Fit Of Extreme Emotion In A Moment Of Weakness , Where He Made One Fatal Mistake Which He Will Live To Regret , Which Could Lead To His UNDOING Doom And Downfall In A Court Of Law . These Two ALL IMPORTANT Letters, A Lollypop for The Prosecution, Was Obviously Written In A Fit Of Anger By A Maniac Person On Panic Mode, Who Was Obviously Upset At Me,
As a CIRCULATION INSIDER Having
SPILLED THE UNHOLY BEANS, Which The Criminal Syndicate Expected Me “To Maintain Confidentiality” About
“The Cabal” And The Criminal
Underworld Operation In Circulation Department Of The Hindu . This DEAD GIVEAWAY LETTERS Will Prove To Be The Critical And Clinching Legal Evidence To Prove My Prosecution Case Of WILFUL FRAUD . I Can Provide A Copy Of These Two All Important Letters To ABC Council If You Desire. A Mere Cursory Reading Of These Two All Important Letters By Even The Uninformed And The Uninitiated, ( These Damning Implicating And Incriminating Letters Which Will Be Presented In A Court Of Law
Prosecution Evidence), Will Prove Beyond Several Things , Complicit Collusion Of N Murali A Rogue Regulator Turned Collaborator, A Lawmaker Turned Lawbreaker Cum Blackmailer, A Symbol and Sentinel
Of TRUST Turned
Treacherous TRAITOR Of Individual, Institution And Industry , As The Man Leads “A DOUBLE LIFE” , In A Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde With Shades Of Black , White and Grey , Unknown To The World Outside The Hindu , 33
On Who Is N Murali Beyond The Farce And Façade He Puts Up , In a Game and Guile Of Deceit And Deception . Rubbing Salt To Injury , What Was Shocking, Was That The Mafia Managing Director Of The Hindu Had The Gall To UNLAWFULLY DENY ME, A Whistleblower Employee, MY FINAL SETTLEMENT After I Was LAWFULLY RELIEVED With A Relieving Order Dated 18th September 2006. My Key Prosecution Point Is That Till 18th September 2006 There Was No Case Or Charges Whatsoever Against Me Considering That The Company Had Issued Me A Relieving Order – Ironically Signed By The Very Same Managing Director N.Murali. But After I Turned Whistleblower On The Hindu ABC FRAUDGATE at The Hindu Board Level, Overnight, Over The Night I Become Guilty Of “Serious Misconduct”.
Its Not A JOKE But A SICK JOKE Of A SICK
PSYCHOTIC MIND. This Was a Straightforward Case Of BLACKMAILING A Whistleblower, By Saying YOU COOPERATE And You Will Get Your Settlement. In Effect ,What THE MASTERMIND Was Seeking Was A QUID PRO QUO TRADE OFF. Legally Speaking , It Was Clear As A Whistle That Rather Than “Reading The Message” The Hindu’s Mafia Managing Director, And The Hindu Board By Themselves, Was Trying To “ Shoot The Messenger” Where They Feared That I Will Turn A Whistleblower On The Hindu ABC FRAUDGATE Outside The Hindu, So The Blackmailer Managing Director Of The Hindu, In GROSS VIOLATION Of All My FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS Uses My FINAL SETTLEMENT To Arm Twist Me To Come To A tacit QUID PRO QUO Trade Off , That I Will Not Speak Out The Truth – The Forbidden Truth, On His MAFIA SYNDICATE .
THE GREAT HINDU ROBBERY What Is MOST BIZARRE , Perhaps Unheard And Unprecedented Of In Civil Or Corporate History, Is That I An Employee Who Was Legitimately Relieved By The Hindu on 18th September 2006, Full 10 Years Later, Am Still To Get MY FINAL SETTLEMENT From The Hindu(Which I Should Have Legitimately Got In October 2006), All For The Crime Of Turning Whistleblower At The Hindu Board Level and Reporting WOEFUL WRONGDOINGS Of THE HINDU’S CIRCULATION MAFIA To The Hindu Board. This Is UNLAWFUL, UNETHICAL, UNBECOMING, UNPROFESSIONAL, UNCIVILISED And UNTENABLE In Gross Criminal Violation Of A Citizen
Employees FUNDAMENTAL Human, Labour And Legal RIGHTS, Worthy Of Being Classified Under “Human Rights Abuse Of The War Time Crimes Order” Demanding Installation Of A TRUTH COMMISSION PROBE To Probe The Atrocities And The Abuses Perpetrated On A Law Abiding Citizen Employee . I As A Honest Hard Working Human Being Still Cannot Fathom WHY WAS I SO “HORRIBLY MISTREATED IN THE HINDU” To Be Worthy Of Such INHUMAN TORTURE For 12 Years , Where I Became A Victim Of “WRONGFUL DISMISSAL” And “WOEFUL MISTREATMENT” ?
RAREST OF RARE CRIME- TO BE HONEST AND UPRIGHT After All What Was The Grave Crime Committed By Me, To Be Worthy Of A Capital Punishment, When Criminals And Fraudsters, Wrongdoers And Womanisers , Are Having A Field Day And A Free Run In Criminal Circulation Department Of The Hindu Even Today In 2016 , UNCHECKED And UN CHECKED . Can You Think Of Any Company In A Civilised World Which INCENTIVISES Illegalities And Immoralities, Corruption And Cheating, Wrongdoing And Womanising, Faking And Forgery, Pimping and Prostitution, 35
Where Higher Your Illegal And Immoral Index In The Hindu’s Dubious Performance Appraisal Process , Faster Will Be Your Rise To The Top Echelon Leadership Of The Hindu. It Happens In The Hindu , Even Today In 2016 . Suffice To Say We Have What I Would Call “PAID FRAUD”
In The Hindu , Where Known
FRAUDSTERS Are Promoted, One Time Payment Jackpot Bonuses Doled Out Like FREEBIES To FRAUDSTERS, Given Multiple Increments , All To Commit FRAUD With Greater Machiavellian FAKING Skills To Hoodwink The ABC Audit Process And Auditors , ALL Done Through “Opaque Performance Appraisals” With No TRANSPARENCY Or ACCOUNTABILITY Whatsoever , Where BOTTOMLINE MAFIA MESSAGE Is In The Hindu Of The 21st Century Its RADHI And RACKETEERING That Matters In CIRCULATION , Not READER And READERSHIP . In A Classic Case Of MEDIA Turned MAFIA , It Is Clear That THE CRIMINAL SYNDICATE In The Hindu Wants To Protect And Perpetuate The Hindu ABC FRAUD To Perpetuity, At Whatever Cost, Stooping To Whatever Levels, Stooping down To Stage Managing Fake Encounter Killings, Whatever It Takes. This Is An EXTREME BEHAVIOR Which Is Best Explained, By Disgraced B Ramalinga Raju’s Now Infamous Quote On His “Satyam Fraud” . “Its Like Riding A Tiger, Not Knowing, How To Get Off, Without Being Eaten”. A DOMINO EFFECT OF “A FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE” MADE BY Mr. N MURALI AS CHIEF EXECUTIVE , In 2004 FUNDAMENTALLY, It Was A Fatal Mistake That Role Model Turned “Ring Leader” Mr N Murali Made In 2004, Which He Is Today Living To Regret As “THE MISTAKE OF HIS LIFE” Of Taking The FAKING And FRAUDULENT PATH To “WHEEL AND DEAL” His Way Towards 36
FASTTRACKING The Hindu’s READER, READERSHIP And REVENUE Numbers – The Quick Fix Way . Then To Cap This WRONGDOING , He Made THE BIGGER MISTAKE Of TARGETTING A Known Honest Hard Working Employee And STAGE MANAGING A FAKE ENCOUNTER KILLING, ALL DONE Abominably MISUSING His Managing Director Position And Media Powers Of Freedom Of Press And Right To Self Regulation Towards Criminal And Mafia Ends . Today After 12 Of SYSTEMIC LYING and CHEATING He Has Ended Up Getting Caught In THE WEB He Himself Created, Ending In Dragging Himself And The Hindu Into A Big BLACK HOLE, For Which He Could End Up , Going To Jail . Frankly , In What Way Is N Murali Different From a B Ramalinga Raju Or a Vijay Mallya Or an R K Pachauri Who All Betrayed TRUST as They Turned From PROTECTER To PERPETRATOR.
NOWHERE TO RUN NOWHERE TO HIDE Its GAME OVER And END GAME For N Murali (Who Has “ Lost The Plot ” ) And “THE 12 YEAR HINDU ABC FRAUDGATE”. A Clarion Call To ABC Council Of Management For INTERVENTION And INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION PROBE – Time For DAMAGE CONTROL . Now That Law Makers Of The Institution in Question THE HINDU Have Failed In Their Duty Of Responsibility, As A Horribly Wronged Victim Of The Hindu ABC FRAUDGATE, I The Aggrieved Appellant am Now Approaching You Law Makers Of The Industry – The ABC – To Address and Redress This Highly Sensitive But Serious Industry Impacting Issue, As I Try To Avoid Precipitating A Crisis Taking This Watertight Case To Law Makers In A Court Of Law, To Avoid Washing Some Serious Institution And Industry Impacting 37
Ugly Dirty Linen In Public Which Could Irreparably Damage REPUTATIONS Of Industry For Wrongdoing Of A Individual Institution Of The Industry. All I As An Aggrieved Appellant Employee am seeking Is REDEMPTION JUSTICE And RIGHTFUL SETTLEMENT For Grave Wrongs Done To Me Centered Around ABC FRAUDGATE, Which Is THE GROUND ZERO To This Whole DIABOLIC PLOT. My Objective Is CLOSURE JUSTICE And Not CLOSURE OF THE HINDU Like “The News of The World” In 2011. TIME FOR SOUL SEARCHING , CLEAN UP And COURSE CORRECTION.
Towards This I, Murali Krishnan, The Internal Whistleblower Of THE HINDU ABC FRAUDGATE Seek From ABC As A Statutory Regulatory Body Of Circulation, A Thorough Fact Finding Independent “Third Party” Investigation Probe Of THE TRUTH COMMISSION ORDER, On The Goings And Happenings In THE HINDU ABC FRAUDGATE Since 2004, When The Whole Rot And Spiral Began, Get To The Bottom Of The Truth, The Scam Racket And The Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy To Which An Honest, Upright CIRCULATION FOOTSOLDIER Became
A Horrible Victim Of, Ensuring
JUSTICE Is Not Just Done, But Seen To Be Done To A Horribly Wronged Victim Of WOEFUL
MISTREATMENT And WRONGFUL DISMISSAL, Where
Beyond Anything And Everything The CREDIBILITY And REPUTATION Of ABC As A Regulatory Body Is At Peril Stake. I Am Prepared To Stand Approver Witness And Depose Against The Woeful Wrongdoings And Wrongdoers Of THE 12 YEAR HINDU CIRCULATION GATE Wherever Required, In A Court Of Enquiry Or A Court Of Law. One Of The Fundamental Fountainhead Principles Of Law And Justice Is That Even A Guilty Is Considered Innocent, Unless And Until Proven Guilty.
Sadly In The Talibanic Justice System Of The Hindu, An Innocent Is Considered Guilty , Unless And Until Proven Innocent By The Guilty. Today I Am Touching 57 Years, Where I Have So Far Lost 12 Years Of My Life And Career For No Fault Or Failure Of Mine, Where Once I Get Justice And My Rightful Final Settlement For “Wrongful Dismissal” And Woeful Wrongs Perpetrated On Me At The Prime Of My Life And Career, I Would Like To Quietly Move Forward To The Sunset Of My Life, To Lead A Quiet Life Of Dignity And Self Respect- With Human Values. Today All Eyes , Internally And Externally, Will Be On How ABC As A Statutory Regulatory Body Deals With This Individual, Institution And Industry Impacting Issue. THE CROSSROADS MOMENT FOR ABC AS A REGULATORY BODY . Fact Is, This Is An Embarrassing And Serious Aberration By An Industry Member In The Critical Area Of CIRCULATION Which Needs To Be Immediately Addressed And Corrected, “Righting The Wrongs” INTERNALLY Within The Industry To Avoid Collateral Damage Disaster To Institution And Industry At Large Which Involves FAITH Of Customers, Clients, Constitution And Civil Society At Large. I Hope And Pray Truth, Justice And Fair Play Will Finally Prevail In The Larger
Interests Of Individual, Institution and Industry, After 12 Years Of
OUTRAGEOUS INJUSTICE In THE HINDU, Ensuring That Justice Is Not Just Done , But Seen To Be Done , To A Horribly MISTREATED Citizen Employee Of The Institution And Industry, Where Beyond Anything And Everything The CREDIBILITY And REPUTATION Of ABC As A Regulatory Body Will Be Seriously UNDERMINED If It Fails To Act With PROPRIETY And PROBITY, Without Fear Or Favour, Affection Or Ill Will, Bias Or Exception, To Give The Loud Message That No One, Including The Self Righteous The Hindu Group Or 39
ABC Ex Member Of Council Of Management
Mr.N.Murali, Is Above
ACCOUNTABILITY Or ABOVE THE LAW, So That This Will Be A Loud Lesson
LAKSHMANREKHA’s Let Alone BREAK THE LAW In The Mad RAT RACE For READER, READERSHIP And REVENUES. This Is A WAKE UP CALL
For The Industry, As Beyond READER,
READERSHIP And REVENUES There Is Something Called REPUTATION, RESPECT And RESPONSIBILITY Which Cannot Be Compromised , At ANY COST – Otherwise We Fail To Be HUMAN BEINGS . I End This Whistleblower Note With An Immortal Quote Of RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan : “No One Wants To Go After The Well Connected WRONGDOER, Which Means They Get Away With Even More. If We Are To Have Strong Sustainable Growth, THIS CULTURE OF IMPUNITY , SHOULD STOP ”.

ABC FRAUD IN THE HINDU – SINCE 2004 A SATYAM FRAUD IN THE HINDU 23.04.2016 WHISTLEBLOWER PETITION NO. 35 GOING PUBLIC, An Internal Whistleblower Employee’s “ GAME CHANGER ” Of “AN OPEN LETTER” Note to 15 Board Members of The Hindu’s Governing Council, Posted on Social Networking Sites on Twitter and Facebook, Seeking Answers and Accountability on Why No Action was Taken For 10 Years On 34 Whistleblower Petitions Sent To The Hindu Board Members, Exposing Woeful Wrongdoings in The Hindu, Involving “ Willful Fraud” And Gross Abuse of Power.
Dear Director Of The Hindu KSL ,
A Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Outraged Cry of A Victimized Whistleblower Employee for REDEMPTION, TRUTH and JUSTICE To Prevail. After becoming A Victim of Outrageous Injustice (Amounting to Murder of Justice) in A Diabolic Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy of ABC FRAUD in The Hindu in 2005, I The Aggrieved Whistleblower Employee of The Hindu, A Veteran of 25 Lifetime Years of Service to Institution, Sent As Many As 34 Whistleblower Petitions to Board Members of The Hindu’s Governing Council (Which for Posterity and Prosecution Probe is Chronologically Listed in The Excel Sheet Sent along with) Seeking A Full Scale, All Encompassing, Independent “Third Party” Investigation Probe into “The 12 Year ABC FRAUD Criminal Conspiracy in The Hindu Since 2004”, When it all Began.
Fundamental Question is, Why was No Action taken by The Hindu’s Governing Board For Full 10 Years to get to The Bottom of The Truth, The Rot, The Fraud Scam and
A Deadly Concoction of Sex, Sleaze, Scam, Skullduggery And A Syndicate. Why is The Hindu Board Scared to get to the Bottom of The FRAUD bordering on The Murky and The Mysterious ? Untenable Inaction and Silence for 10 years Raises the Natural Suspicion and Conclusion that FRAUD Has been INSTITUTIONALIZED in The Hindu, Where Board Members of The Hindu’s Governing Council Are All, Without Exception, Complicit in Collusion in “A COVER UP” of “THE SATYAM FRAUD IN THE HINDU”. While Silence amounts to Admissal of Guilt, A Stonewall of Silence for 10 Years Suggests FEAR of Complicit Involvement Of The Hindu Board Members being involved in THE CORPORATE FRAUD. Question is, In Woeful Wrongdoings of the SERIOUS FRAUD order, Is The Hindu And The Hindu Board Members ABOVE ACCOUNTABILITY and ABOVE THE LAW of The Land ? A Clarion Call to Civil Society, Constitutional Authorities and Court of Law Does Privileged Constitutional Powers of FREEDOM OF PRESS and RIGHT TO SELF REGULATION give The Hindu Leadership The Sovereign Right to Misuse and Abuse Constitutional Powers and Privileges towards Criminal and Corrupt Ends ? Does
The Hindu Leadership The Sovereign Right to become Extra Constitutional Authorities, To Commit LICENCED FRAUD and Orchestrate EXTRA JUDICIAL KILLINGS of Citizens they Perceive as a threat to their CRIMINAL SYNDICATE ? 49
Does Privileged Constitutional Powers of FREEDOM OF PRESS and RIGHT TO SELF REGULATION give The Hindu Leadership The Constitutional Right to be “Their Own Judge in their Woeful Wrongdoings Within The Hindu”, Since 2004 ? MEDIA Turned MAFIA in Something Serious, Which Undermines and Subverts The Constitution, And FAITH of Citizens, Which Calls for PUBLIC DEBATE in Civil Society, By Citizens, Constitutional Authorities and Courts of Law of The Country, As This, In A Summary Encapsulates This 12 Year Diabolical Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy in The Hindu Since 2004, Where in A Travesty “A Watchdog has Turned Woeful Wrongdoer”, Misusing and Abusing Privileged Constitutional Powers towards Criminal and Corrupt Ends, For Which The Wrongdoers Must Be Brought to ACCOUNTABILITY, As Fundamental Question is, Where does A Law Abiding Citizen go for Justice if Law Makers themselves become Law Breakers, Protectors Turned Perpetrators and Predators, Watchdogs Turn Wrongdoers. Fundamentally Where Are We Heading for As A Civilization, As Mankind, When Symbols of TRUST Turn TRAITORS ? This is A Shocking Story and Case Study for Civil Society To Draw Serious Lessons From. THE BACK STORY – THE BACKGROUND OF A MURKY CASE N.Murali – “The B RamalingaRajuOf The Hindu’s 12 Year Satyam Fraud”. THE GROUND ZERO - At THE CRITICAL “CROSSROADS MOMENT OF The Hindu” And History, Its Time You Guys In The Hindu’s Governing Council Understand The Fundamental Truth That , This Is A FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER Produced, Procreated, Protected, Perpetuated And Promoted Since
Fundamentally Centered Around FAKE CIRCULATION And FAKING THE STATUTORY ABC AUDIT PROCESS And STATUTORY DOCUMENTS, Where While Late Vice President (Cir) Mr. M.R. Sivakumar was The Kingpin, The Hindu’s 50
Then Managing Director Mr. N. Murali was The Mastermind, In A Sad Case of A Regulator turned Complicit Collaborator, In A Multi Dimensional Criminal Fraud Conspiracy Of “A SATYAM FRAUD In THE HINDU” . What Was Most Sad And Unfortunate Is That, The Present Managing Director & CEO Mr Professional Rajiv C Lochan , Who Could Have Become The Transformational Change Which The Company Wishes To See , Given His QUESTIONABLE PRACTICES of The Last 22 Months When His Practices Were Under Close and Continous Scrutiny ,Was A Terrible Let Down ,Where Facts Indicate He Has Wilfully Chosen To TOE The N Murali Criminal Line By Going In For A COVER UP Instead Of Going In For A CLEAN UP , Which Explains In Context Why The 12 Year CORRUPTION ROT In Criminal Circulation Department Of The Hindu Continues UNOBSTRUCTED With NO ONE WHOSOEVER Brought To ACCOUNTABILITY Though It Is Almost 2 Years Past Since He Mr Rajiv C Lochan Took Charge , Suggesting That FRAUD Has Been INSTITUTIONALISED In The Hindu Of The 21 st Century .
THE PLOT “THE GROUND ZERO” of The Whole Criminal Conspiracy – Questions that Demand Answers And Accountability. Are You Guys in The Hindu’s Board Aware That In A Larger Criminal Conspiracy,
UNDISTRIBUTED COPIES In Chennai City Alone, Where In An Obnoxiously Scandalous Scam, UNOPENED BUNDLES , Without Even The Plastic Wrapping Being Opened , Are “ Fresh From The Oven ” Straightaway Diverted – Rather “Carted” To The RADHI Wholesale Market - For Recycling Newsprint - To The Neighborhood WHOLESALE WASTEPAPER MERCHANT, Mind You At 6.00AM In The Morning, (When Logically And Legitimately It Has To Be sent To The 51
READER For READERSHIP PURPOSE And Not THE RADHI MARKET For RADHI PURPOSE), Which Is To Say In As Many Words , That THE HINDU GROUP Is CHEATING READER, READERSHIP, REVENUE GENERATING ADVERTISERS And REGULATORY BODIES with RADHI MEANS And METHODS, And A ROTTEN LEADERSHIP, Where The Hindu’s Net Paid Circulation, (Wrongfully Got Certified By ABC Using Unethical And Unlawful Means And Methods, By Hook Or By Crook), Is INFLATED And FAKED By A MINDBOGGLING 50000 Copies In CHENNAI CITY ALONE, Which Explains In Context, The Raging DISENCHANTMENT Among CHENNAI CITY AGENTS Today In The Hindu’s Bastion Market, Where SHOCKINGLY No One In The Industry in Chennai Today Wants To Be Associated With The Hindu News Agency Business, Which Also Explains In Context THE HUGE DEBILITATING CIRCULATION OUTSTANDING Running To CRORES Which News Agents are Refusing To Pay,
Attributing It To KILLING
UNSOLDS, Where Today Even THE RADHI SCAM of The Hindu Has Become Unviable, With Decrease In Paper Gauge, Weight And Radhi Rate To Rs.9/Per Kg, Where The Entire HOUSE OF CARDS is Threatening To Come CRASHING DOWN Under The Weight Of A PILE UP of THE HINDU “RADHI SCAM” Of 12 Years, From January 2004, In A DOMINO EFFECT Of Sorts, Where Sad Truth Is That, “THE FAKE GROWTH” COOKED UP During The Last 12 Years, Is All HOT AIR And GAS. Imagine THE COMPANY Spending CRORES To Promote And Perpetuate FAKE CIRCULATION. My Dear Learned?? Directors, This Explains In Context The MASSIVE AND
And CIRCULATION NUMBERS, You Name It, Where
SYSTEMICALLY, Whether The Hindu Sales Force Know Or Do Their Sales Job, 52
They Are SYSTEMATICALLY Trained, “INDOCTRINATED” To Be adroit In ILLEGALLY COUNTERFEITING and FAKING Signatures Of News Agents, Who Simply Refused To Sign The Statutory ABC Documents, Unless Full Credit Is Given For All The KILLING UNSOLDS Suffered Due To WHOLESALE WANTON DUMPING OF COPIES To PROP UP The Company’s CERTIFIED CIRCULATION To PRE-TARGETTED LEVELS , The FAKE And FAKING Way. Needless To Say Everyone From Rogue Regional General Managers like N. Krishnan and co To Regional Sales And Operation Staff Are All In A Chain, HAND IN GLOVE In PULLING THE WOOL OVER YOUR EYES, Deceiving You By Projecting FAKE GROWTH IN SALES, And Far Worse Getting It FRAUDULENTLY CERTIFIED By ABC AUDITORS By FAKING STATUTORY DOCUMENTS (Where, Since January 2004 ABC Statutorily Demands 100% Execution of Statutory Documents to Certify the Claimed Circulation) AND NEWS AGENTS SIGNATURES – EN MASSE, In A FORGERY CRIME , One Of Its Kind In Corporate History, In Which FRAUDSTER Associate Vice President R.Varadamani And His FIXER Assistant Henchman Mr.K.S.Raghavan Play A Critical Collaborative Role In What Can Only Be Best Described As THE SATYAM FRAUD SCAM OF THE HINDU, Where Once This Criminal Conspiracy SCAM Case Gets Exposed – GOD FORBID – This Will Become NATIONAL SHAME, Where A Whole Lot Of People Including The Mastermind N Murali Will Have To Go To JAIL Like B Ramalinga Raju and Company, Once There Is A Forensic Criminal Investigation By CBI Or CB-CID, Where The Hindu , Which Should Be Making News, Will Become The News. The Hindu CIRCULATION MAFIA’S Dictum Seems To Be That , If You Cannot Make It , Then Simply FAKE IT , Least Bothered That Their MERCENARY MISDEEDS Could Ominously Lead To INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE Of The 137 Year Old Hindu Group . 53
It Would Be Shocking To Know That As Much As 60 To 70 % Of The
INSTITUTION, During the Biannual STATUTORY ABC AUDIT Is FAKE, Where In A FRAUD And FORGERY One Of Its Kind In Corporate History, 60 To 70 % Of News Agents Signatures In Statutory ABC Documents Demanded By ABC
COUNTERFEITED Within Our Regional Offices, At The Express Behest Of THE SUSPECT LEADERSHIP In Corporate Office of The Hindu, WHERE Using INTIMIDATORY TACTICS, Branch Offices Are COERCED To Achieve 100% Documentation, Overnight, Over The Night, By Hook or by Crook, Whatever It Takes, Stooping To Whatever Levels, At Whatever Cost, THE QUICKFIX WAY, Where Rogue Associate Vice President Of The Hindu Mr. R.Varadamani And His Hoodlum
SYSTEMICALLY, INDOCTRINATE And INTIMIDATE Branch Staff For QUICKFIX 100% RESULTS, When They Are Just Not Able To Get The Signatures From The News Agents, Due To “A LARGER MALAISE” Of WHOLESALE DUMPING Of Unwanted Copies For Which Aggrieved News Agents Demanded CREDIT And REBATE On UNSOLD SUFFERED, Where With Aggrieved News Agents Refusing To Sign The Statutory Document, Caught Literally Between “The Devil And The Deep Blue Seas”, It Has Driven THE ENTIRE SALES FORCE Of The Circulation Department Of The Hindu, To THEMSELVES Illegally COUNTERFEITING News Agents Signatures, Right Under The Supervision Of Regional Managers And Corporate Managers Of The Hindu In What Can Only Be Defined As “LICENSED FRAUD”. Committing FORGERY And COUNTERFEITING In Mass Numbers – En Masse For 12 Years, Since 2004, Which Have Made The Hindu Sales Force MASTER
FORGERERS And COUNTERFEITERS, Where Today If the Situation Demands, They Can Even Counterfeit The Hindu Directors Signatures. How Gargantuan Is This “ORGANISED CRIME And FRAUD” Of A SYNDICATE of The Hindu Can best be Judged From The Fact That , In Branch Offices Sales Force Are OFFICIALLY Provided With A Set Of Pens In Various Colours To Make A Perfect FAKING Job, Down To Even News Agents Rubber Stamp Seals Being DUPLICATED, “MANUFACTURED”, FAKED In The Branch Offices, All Done Without The Knowledge Of The News Agent And ABC Authorities In Mumbai , Which If And When Gets EXPOSED , Can Mean “ The Game Is Up ” And An FIR Complaint And Criminal Proceedings Against The Hindu And The Forgerers, In What Is A Non Bailable Criminal Case Of FRAUD – CORPORATE FRAUD. Just Imagine For A Moment What Would Be The Catastrophic Consequences If Our Competitors Come To Know About This HINDU SCAM RACKET Where The Self Proclaimed RIGHTEOUS Hindu Group Is Involved In RACKETEERING. It Would Be Disaster And Curtains For The Hindu Group . Welcome To India’s Biggest Faking And Fraud Operation, Where FRAUD Has Been INSTITUTIONALISED In The Hindu.
A SYSTEMIC FAILURE AND FRAUD A Forensic Criminal Investigation By CBI or CB-CID , With Technical Forensic Support Of
Forensic Experts From The Department Of Forensic
Sciences, Will Expose, The Trail And The Sheer Magnitude Of FRAUD IN THE HINDU, Involving Huge Logistics, Of CRIME, CRIMINALITY, CHEATING, COUNTERFEITING, CORRUPT PRACTICES, COOKING UP The Books, Statutory Documents And Circulation Numbers in “THE SATYAM FRAUD OF THE HINDU” Since 2004, Who Is The Mastermind, Who Are All The State And 55
Non State Actors Who Are Involved Behind This Huge, Well Coordinated And Collaborated
A MASSIVE FRAUD In India’s Most Respected And Reputed Newspaper Group, A Living Symbol Of TRUTH And TRUST, Who In A FRAUD By Itself MISUSED PRIVILEGED CONSTITUTIONAL POWERS of FREEDOM OF PRESS and RIGHT TO SELF REGULTION Towards CRIMINAL ENDS, And FAR WORSE, Used- Rather Misused- A Temple Of Values As A PRETEXT To Protect and Perpetuate Criminal Improprieties, Illegalities And Immoralities, All Done Within The Sanctum Sanctorum Of The Hindu Office. To get to the Bottom of FACTS and The FRAUD, In this Inquest Investigation All Clinical and Circumstantial Evidence must be taken into Account, Where Even Retired and Resigned Staff of The Hindu Circulation Department Post January 2004 may be asked and allowed to depose to A Sworn Testimony as Prosecution Witness before “THE TRUTH COMMISSION PROBE”. I Call And Consider The Hindu’s CORPORATE FRAUD As The Biggest Fraud In Post Independence India, Simply Because, Here Is A Case Where What Is Looked Up To By Civil Society and Corporate India As A Living Symbol Of Human and Corporate Values, Blinded By MAMMON, Where MEANS, METHODS Or MORALS Don’t Seem To Matter AT ALL, Have UNBECOMINGLY Succumbed To Temptations, Where Instead Of Being A ROLE MODEL In Keeping With ICONIC INSTITUTIONAL LEGACY VALUES Of 125 Years Till 2003 , Has “In The Sly” Joined THE ROGUE MODEL Bandwagon, Betraying TRUST Of Civil Society Who Look Up To Them As THE SYMBOL And SENTINEL Of Civil Society, Betraying FAITH Of A Vulnerable Younger Generation Who Looked Up To The Hindu As A Beacon Of Hope In An Increasingly CORRUPT SOCIETY, Who Are Desperately Looking For MENTORS , Only To See The Hindu Turn Into A MONSTER . Has 56
Anyone Introspected On What sort Of A Message And Legacy
Leadership In The Hindu Was Sending To The Younger Generation and Subordinate Employees Of The Hindu ? What is the Kind of Legacy being left behind for The Next Generation, Where Citizen Employees are being Trained and Turned to Be COUNTERFEITERS, FORGERERS, CRIMINAL FRAUDSTERS in the ABC FRAUD ? It Would Not Be Out Of Place To Mention That I Murali Krishnan, A Veteran Employee of 25+ Years, Had in Good FAITH Conscientiously Turned INTERNAL WHISTLEBLOWER To Report These Woeful Wrongdoings At The Hindu’s Governing Council Level IN WRITING Full 10 Years Back In 2006 With A Tell All 357 Page First Hand Witness Whistleblower Account tome like Volume of Institution Impacting Revelations on the Woeful Wrongdoings Within The System in The Hindu, Which was followed by As Many as 34 Reminder Whistleblower Petitions to All Board Members of The Hindu’s Governing Council during the Last 10 Years, About This MONSTROUS FRANKENSTEIN OF A MONSTER But Sadly Board Members Turned A Stone Deaf Ears, Turned A Blind Eye To This TERMINAL CANCER For 10 Years, On Something Which Demanded URGENT SURGICAL INTERVENTION, To Save The afflicted Patient Which The Hindu Was, Which Unaddressed For An Untenable 10 Years Has Today Come Back To Destroy Its CREATOR
Managing Director N.Murali, And THE COMPANY - THE HINDU
Which Fostered the Terminal Cancer For 10 Years , Which Could Take The Hindu As An Institution To The HOSPICE . SHOCKING As It May Seem, I As Regional Head Of A Major Printing Unit At Kochi Was SUMMARILY SACKED By THE ROGUE MANAGING DIRECTOR Of The Hindu Mr. N. Murali On 21st August 2005 For The Crime Of Being CONSCIENTIOUS And Choosing To Be True To MY CONSCIENCE And True To The LEGACY VALUES Of The Hindu Group Of The 20th Century, For REFUSING To Toe THE CRIMINAL LINE, For Refusing To Be Part Of The Hindu’s FAKING 57
OPERATION, Where I Found FAKING, FUDGING And FORGERY Abhorrent, Simply Because It was Against My Core VALUES As A Human Being. I Want To Ask Civil Society And A Court Of Law, If Being Law Abiding Is A Crime. If Yes, Then I Am Prepared To Go To The Gallows. This was Simply MURDER OF JUSTICE. This was A Clear Case of “WRONGFUL DISMISSAL” Where After A Lifetime 25+Years of Well Acknowledged and Rewarded Outstanding Service to Institution, I was SUMMARILY given The Capital Punishment on 21 st August 2005, Arbitrarily Sacking me, Without Even A Case, Without A Crime, Without A Charge Sheet, Without A Credible Trial Process, Without A Right or Opportunity to Defend Myself, Without the Right to be Heard, Where What was Shocking, The Supreme Court of The Hindu Stonewalled My 34 Whistleblower APPEAL PETITIONS made to The Hindu Board JUST REFUSING TO HEAR MY APPEAL PETITION , Raising More Questions Than Answers. In A Travesty of TRUTH and JUSTICE, This was A One Sided Judgment, Where An Innocent was being Hanged, Even before He was Heard, Or Tried. Legally Speaking, It would be Shocking to know that During the Last 10 Years I the Aggrieved Appellant Victim and Whistleblower Complainant HAVE NOT BEEN HEARD EVEN ONCE Despite As many As 34 Written Appeal Petitions made in The Supreme Court of The Hindu. Where Law of Natural Justice States that Even A Guilty is considered Innocent, Unless
The Hindu they consider An Innocent as Guilty Unless and Until Proven Innocent by The Criminals.
SACKING Where I Was “WRONGFULLY DISMISSED” EXECUTION STYLE In Gross Contravention
Of All CONVENTIONS Of CIVIL or CORPORATE
BEHAVIOR And In Criminal Violation Of All My Fundamental Human, Legal And Labour Rights By The Hindu and The Suspect Hindu Board is INHUMAN, UNCIVILIZED MISTREATMENT. Fundamentally
RELATIONSHIP, Including Employer / Employee Relationship Is Built Around TRUST. It Is That Solemn TRUST That The Rogue Managing Director Of The Hindu Mr. N.Murali and The Hindu Board By Itself, TREACHEROUSLY BETRAYED, While I Was In My Line Of DUTY To INSTITUTION. Its Sad To Note That MENTOR LEADERS Of The Hindu Of 20th Century, Who Should Have Provided MENTOR LEADERSHIP To A Vulnerable NEW GENERATION Of The Hindu, Have Blinded By MAMMON, Turned MONSTERS, Where Today TRUTH – An Inconvenient Truth – Is that The Hindu As An Institution Is Left HIGH AND DRY, ORPHANED With No One WHOSOEVER To Provide VALUE BASED LEADERSHIP To This 137 Year Old HINDU GROUP, Leading To The Present COLLATERAL DAMAGE DISASTER. The Situation Calls For DEEP INTROSPECTION And SOUL SEARCHING At The Crossroads Moment Of The Hindu. Ladies And Gentlemen, Welcome To The Hindu
LAUNDERING”FIXERS T20 League SCAM RACKET Which Has All The Makings Of BCCI’s IPL, Where Fixing, Womanising, Pimping, Prostitution and Perpetrating Gross Violation of Human Rights Are The Natural Corollary Of INSTANT CRICKET
And QUICKFIX “REALITY SHOW” RESULTS, Where MEANS AND METHODS And MORALS Don’t Seem to Matter AT ALL in The Hindu of The 21st Century. ALL That Matters Is MAMMON, MACHIAVELLIAN And MACHINATION. What I Have Quoted above About Chennai City FAKE And FAKING OPERATION, Is Just “The Proverbial Tip Of The Iceberg”, Today Rampant Across The Hindu Which Has Insidiously Spread To Epidemic And Pandemic Proportions Across the Country Like Plague In The Hindu, Where ABC FRAUDSTERS Associate Vice President R.Varadamani And His FIXER Assistant K.S.Raghavan Coordinate THE ENTIRE ABC FRAUD OPERATION. Hence
CIRCULATION The QUICKFIX WAY, Little Realising We Are Heading Towards HUBRIS and INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE. It Is Not Without Reason That Mr.N.Murali Is So Intimately Close To Roguester R.Varadamani,
In What Was Clearly A QUID PRO QUO For Toeing The Fraudulent Line for 12 Years,
A LIFETIME OF CORPORATE FRAUD, Ironically And Notably, Honoured By The New
Age CEO Mr.Rajiv C Lochan, Who In Effect Was LICENSING And
LEGITIMIZING “THE ILLEGAL”, Where in November 2015 We Had A Soap Opera Farce, One Of Its Kind, ON STAGE in Front Of Over A 100 Delegates In An All India Sales Conference Of The Hindu, When We Had THE TOP LEADERSHIP Of The Hindu , Including The so called Professional CEO Mr Rajiv C Lochan , Literally Competing To Fall At The Feet Of “THE BHEESHMA PITAMAH”
CORPORATE FRAUD in The Hindu, To Touch His UNHOLY FEET, To SEEK HIS BLESSINGS.
To Think that There Is Now A Proposal Before The Hindu Board to take The Rogue Fraudster R. Varadamani As “A Consultant” (For Corporate Fraud) From 1st June 2016, To Obviously Protect and Perpetuate The 12 Year Corporate Fraud. O LORD What’s Happening In The Hindu???????? Rather than going in for “A CLEAN UP” it appears The Hindu’s Governing Council to its Poor Wisdom have Chosen to go for “A COVER UP”, Denying The Undeniable And The Indefensible. Today After 12 Years Of Unobstructed FAKE CIRCULATION And FAKING Of
THE FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER, The Brainchild Of The Hindu’s Regulator Turned Collaborator, Managing Director N.Murali, Is Coming Back To Destroy Its Creator, And The Company Which Is Today Drowned In A DOUBLE WHAMMY, Of DEBILITATING LOSSES And GROWTH HARD TO COME BY. Why Did Such “ A Domino Effect “ Happen ? Honestly, When Was It We Last Spoke About Marketing Strategies, Market Share, Market Competition, Market Dynamics Etc Etc, When We Had Healthy BRAIN STORM SESSIONS In Board Room And Department Conference Rooms. For The Last 12 Years, There Has Been Practically No GENUINE PROMOTION WORK In The Hindu, Which Was The CORE FUNDAMENTAL Of The
The 125th Anniversary Year Of The Hindu Group . After That , INSTITUTIONALLY Blinded By THE MONOPOLY POWER We Enjoyed Till The Turn Of The Century , We Seem To Have COMPLETELY LOST OUR Bearings , Our Sense Of Balance And Direction , Where Instead Of Working Hard Towards CONSOLIDATION , Taking Our MONOPOLY POWER For Granted, 61
Our ROTTEN ROGUE LEADERSHIP Hijacking The 125 Year
Took To SUICIDAL QUICKFIX Means And Methods , Where The Hindu Group Has Ended Up, Losing The Plot And The Race, Towards INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE . Since 2004, Did Anyone Either In The Board Room Or Team Meetings Have The Time For GENUINE PROMOTION WORK, To CONSOLIDATE On The Strong “SUBSCRIPTION” BASE And FOUNDATION We Enjoyed For Over A Century, Bogged Down As One And Everyone Was In Gross Individual Vested Interests, Infighting, Improprieties, Illegalities And Immoralities, Where Nobody Whosoever Right From The Managing Director Down To The Bottom Of The Pyramid of The Hindu, Had The Time Nor Felt The Need To Think About As Basic An Issue, As Door To Door SUBSCRIPTION PROMOTION , Service To Subscriber Etc Etc, Where Nobody WHOSOEVER Cared A Damn “TO LOOK WITHIN” On Our Pathetic FALLACIES And FAILURES And FALLING READER And READERSHIP BASE, Which
Was Our BIGGEST STRENGTH, Till 2003, After Which began THE
DOWNWARD SPIRAL. During the Last 12 Years we have lost Heavy Ground Not Just in Circulation but also in Readership, As was Self Confessed by The “Two Timing” Managing Director Mr. N. Murali Who in An Emotional Outburst Interview to The Times of India Last Year Certified that “The Times of India has Gained Ground in Chennai and Tamil Nadu, While our Market Share has come down”. With ABC Figures Showing A Decreasing Trend For The Hindu Group of Publications, The Next Litmus Test For The Hindu Group will be When NRS Figures are released Early Next Year. It Could be A Shocker. Where Was The Time For Anyone “To Look Within” For SELF ANALYSIS, For SELF INTROSPECTION Over Our Misdeed Mistakes, Where No One Whosoever 62
in The Hindu Leadership Cared to Acknowledge, Let Alone Address, Institution Impacting Mistakes and Issues. Honestly, When At All Have We INSTITUTIONALLY Done Honest STOCK TAKING And SOUL SEARCHING ?
VINAASH KAALE VIPREETH BUDDHI Fact Is That MONOPOLY POWER Went To The Swollen Heads Of Our Spoilt Rotten Leadership, Where They Made THE FATAL MISTAKE Of Taking Things and TRUST For Granted, Where They took Our Customers, Our News Agents, Our Advertisers , Our Regulators For Granted. Never Have I Ever Seen Any Of Our Self Righteous Headstrong Directors Admitting Mistakes Made, Saying Sorry And Working Towards Correcting Their Mistakes, Which Can Only Lead To HUBRIS. Picture this against the Humble Leadership of The Founding Father Director of Infosys Mr.N.R. Narayana Murthy Who was Not only A GOOD LEADER But A GOOD LISTENER, Who Lead Infosys As An Institution BY SELF EXAMPLE, Who When Confronted With TOUGH TIMES During A Difficult Decade from 2005 2014 Steadfastly Refused to Compromise on the CORE VALUES of Infosys. Today Thanks to Mr. N.R. Narayana Murthy’s Wisdom LEADERSHIP Infosys is Enjoying BOOM TIMES In A TURNAROUND OF SORTS. I HAVE A DREAM , To Meet My ROLE MODEL And INSPIRATION FORCE Mr N R Narayana Murthy , Some Day , Some Place , Before I Leave This World , Which To Me is Something Sacred And Very Special , Something akin to A Once In A Lifetime Pilgrimage Visit To Kasi or Mecca or Rome For A Pilgrim Of WORK , WORK
Mr. Narayana Murthy Was The Lighthouse And Guiding Force Behind The Person 63
And Professional I Am Today In What Has Truly Been A FULFILLING EXPERIENCE . It Is An Extraordinary Coincidence That I Started My Professional Journey In The Hindu Fresh Out Of University in 1981 When The Journey Of N R Narayana Murthy And His Brainchild Infosys Began In 1981. LEADERSHIP Starts From THE TOP, Where A Team Or A Company Is As Good As THE LEADER And LEADERSHIP, Where If Leaders Themselves Show The Wrong Direction and Attitude, It Can Only Lead To COLLATERAL DOOM and DISASTER, To End Up in THE DUSTBIN of History. Fact Was, That POWER Went To The Swollen Heads Of Our LAW UNTO THEMSELVES Leadership, Where WE Made THE FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE Of Taking OUR MONOPOLY And MIGHT For Granted . HUBRIS Is What Lead To Our MIGHTY FALL And DOWNFALL, During One Single DECADE OF DECADENCE. Oxford Dictionary defines The Word DECADENCE as “Behavior, Attitudes, etc. which show A Fall in Standards, Especially Moral Ones, And An Interest in Pleasure and Enjoyment, Rather than more Serious Things”.
Its GAME OVER And ENDGAME For THE HINDU’S SATYAM FRAUD SCAM
The Popular Saying Is That “What Goes Around Comes Around”. Rogue Managing Director Mr.N.Murali, (Who was A One Time Board Member of ABC’s Governing Council in the Nineties), UNBECOMINGLY Succumbing To Temptations He Should Never Have As Chief Executive of The Hindu, Is FULLY And SQUARELY RESPONSIBLE For This TSUNAMI CATASTROPHE Involving UNBECOMING GROSS MISCONDUCT For Which He Must Be Brought To ACCOUNTABILITY, Because Whatever CONSPIRED Within The Hindu For12 Years Since 2004 Is NON BAILABLE CRIMINAL And CULPABLE FRAUD , To Be Put BEHIND BARS – IN JAIL . 64
This Is“THE WATERGATE OF THE HINDU”. SHOCKING As It May Seem, I, Murali Krishnan, The Uncompromising, Upright Regional Manager Of A Thriving Kochi Printing Unit, Was “WRONGFULLY DISMISSED” By The TWO TIMING Managing Director N.Murali, Simply Because, I Refused “TO COOPERATE” In TOEING“HIS CRIMINAL LINE”, Where I Found The Whole Thing OBNOXIOUS And OBJECTIONABLE, DISGUSTING And DISGRACEFUL. It Was A TRAVESTY And MURDER OF JUSTICE Where The Managing Director Of The Hindu Involved In UNBECOMING And UNTENABLE WRONGDOINGS, abominably MISUSED His CHIEF EXECUTIVE POWERS Towards CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY And CORRUPT ENDS. I Murali Krishnan As Regional Manager Of Kochi Printing Unit Was A Outstanding Regional Head, The Result Of 8 Years Of UNCOMPROMISING BACK BREAKING HONEST HARD WORK , Where I Slogged Night And Day For 15 Hours On An Average, Every Single Day, Without Sundays, Holidays, Without Socialising For 8 Years, Forgetting and Forsaking Family, Friends For A Larger Noble Cause Of Commitment, Where I Was More Aware Of My RESPONSIBILITIES than my RIGHTS, Where There Was So Much To Achieve in An Aspiration Dream To Deliver CUSTOMER DELIGHT, That 24 Hours Was Just Not Sufficient, Where I Subsisted on 4 Hours Sleep A Day, Where I Was Not The Typical 9 To 5 Man , Where I Started The Day At 3.00 AM Ending My Day At 10.00 PM Late In The Night And Strived To LEAD By SELF EXAMPLE, Where I DREAMED And ASPIRED, Day In Day Out, For A DREAM SYSTEM Where Every STAKEHOLDER Of The Hindu Kochi, News Agents, Advertisers, etc, Down To We Ourselves In The Branch Beyond Designations and Departments
And Contribute Individually And
Collectively, Towards INSTITUTIONAL EXCELLENCE with A Sense of SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. 65
In This Aspirational Endeavour I Was Inspired By My Greatest Inspiration and Driving Force Mr. N.R.Narayana Murthy and His Brainchild INFOSYS, Where I Dreamed Of The Hindu Group, One Day Becoming “A BELLWETHER OF MEDIA” To Achieve GLOBAL STANDARDS Of “AN INSTITUTION OF EXCELLENCE”, To Role Model Standards In BEST PRACTICES, Like INFOSYS. I Was an Ordinary Human Being With Extraordinary DREAMS And ASPIRATIONS “FOR MY COMPANY”, So That We Could Be Good ROLE MODELS, For The World To Follow, For Vulnerable Future Generations To Take THE RIGHT PATH, In A World Where We Are Seeing A Rapid DEGRADATION IN HUMAN VALUES. To Me As A Leader
“THE FUTURE” Of MY INSTITUTION Is More
Important Than MY TODAY. This Is A Simple Thumb Rule Which Kept Me GROUNDED 24 x 7 x 365 for 25 Years, Where At All Times I Constantly And Continuously INTROSPECTED Over
My Institutional Decisions and ASKED
MYSELF How My Decision Will Impact “The Future” Of My Institution, Where I Was Patriotic To CAUSE, COMMITMENT, CONSCIENCE, CIRCULATION , CUSTOMER, COMPANY, CLIENTS And CIVIL SOCIETY At Large. SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY was My CSR. With Such A (W)holistic Approach I Could Prove to be An OUTSTANDING Regional Manager, Who Achieved A Rare Distinction Of UNPRECEDENTED EXCELLENCE In GROWTH, COLLECTIONS And CASH SECURITY Levels, Where I Won As Many As 17 All India Awards Of Excellence in 8 Years, Where I DELIVERED Average 15% GROWTH In Circulation Every Year For 8 Years - Not Through ARTIFICIAL, RADHI Sponsorship and Bulk Orders - But By Pushing Up THE BASE CIRCULATION – THE SUBSCRIPTION BASE - of Our Group Of Publications Through DOOR TO DOOR SUBSCRIPTION PROMOTION , Where Besides, Achieved The UNPRECEDENTED DISTINCTION Of DELIVERING A 66
MINDBOGGLING FEAT Of 100% CIRCULATION COLLECTIONS, With A NEVER BEFORE Achievement Of “ZERO
OUTSTANDING” In The Area Of
CIRCULATION COLLECTIONS For 6 Years, And Was Successful In Achieving And Maintaining CASH SECURITY To Optimum Levels Of Providing 75 Days Security Cover In Every News Agents Account, Even In The Face Of Rapid Increase In Circulation
Which We Were Generating, In A Market Where CIRCULATION
COLLECTIONS Was By Itself A Himalayan Task, Considering That Prior To My Taking Over As Regional Head Of Kochi Region, CIRCULATION OUTSTANDING In The Region Was A Mind Boggling 60% Of MONTHLY BILLING When My Predecessor Was In Command, Which Almost Lead To Shut Down Of The Sick Unit. RISING FROM THE ASHES - A TURNAROUND OF SORTS This was A Classic Case Of Turning HUGE CHALLENGES To HUGE OPPORTUNITIES, Making The Impossible Made Possible – The Ethical Way WITH VALUES, Where, In A Blaze Of UNPRECEDENTED GROWTH And GLORY, We Became A Subject Of CASE STUDY In Kerala Media. In A Small Way We Became “THE BELLWETHER OF MEDIA” In Kerala. Against This PATH BREAKING, TRAIL BLAZING Track Record Background, My Being SUMMARILY SACKED On 21st August 2005 At My Pinnacle of Success, For Doing My Duty And Upholding The Law And INSTITUTIONAL LEGACY VALUES
EXPLANATION, Where, Once This Shocking Case Goes To A COURT OF LAW
The Hindu And The Hindu’s 12 Year SATYAM FRAUD, As the Case could Open A Huge Pandora’s Box Where Ugly Dark and Dirty Skeletons come Tumbling Out Of The Closet, Which could Stir “A Hornets Nest”.
I Feel OUTRAGED And ENRAGED, As , What Did I Get For All My SELFLESS “ROLE MODEL” SERVICE To THE HINDU For 25 Silver Jubilee Years? A SUMMARY SACKING Order From “The Two Timing” N Murali – The COMPROMISED Managing Director Of The Hindu , Who Everyone Knows Is Leading A DOUBLE LIFE . TIME FOR DENOUEMENT AND DAMAGE CONTROL My Dear Board Members Of The Hindu’s Governing Council, Though 10 Years Late, Better Late Than Never, ACT NOW, Before It Becomes Too Late. This Is My IMPASSIONED PLEA To Avoid INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE. If You Guys Have any semblance of Sense, Shame, Sensibility Or Self Respect remaining In You, WISDOM Is To Quickly And Quietly Get Off Your High Horses, Stop Living In Ivory Towers, Stop Clutching at Straws, Stop Hoodwinking, Stop Hiding Behind Half Truth Lies and Legalities, Pray For INSTITUTION SAKE Throw Your Individual Feudal Ego’s Into The Dustbin, And Quickly And Quietly MOVE INTO DAMAGE CONTROL Like TERI’s Governing Council did Recently In The R K Pachauri Case , ADMIT MISTAKES MADE,
“RIGHTING THE WRONGS DONE”, Bring CLOSURE To This SHAMEFUL SCANDALOUS 10 Year Old Skeleton Of A Case, Besides Working Towards A COMPLETE CLEAN UP Of Criminal Circulation Department Of The Hindu Group, To Prevent INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE. As An Aggrieved Complainant Whistleblower Of AMulti Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy, My Fundamental Question To Board Members Of The Hindu’s Governing Body Is, 1)
The Hindu, Worthy Of Being SUMMARILY SACKED ? 68
The Hindu Board Level, To Report Woeful Wrongdoings Within THE SYSTEM in The Hindu, To The Levels Of The Managing Director Of The Hindu Mr.N.Murali UNLAWFULLY Withholding A Lawfully Relieved Employee’s FINAL SETTLEMENT, Which In A TRAVESTY, Remains Unsettled Even Today, Full 10 Years After I was Relieved By The Company? 3)
Is It A Crime To Be Clean, Non Corrupt , Honest , Hard Working, Being INSTITUTION DRIVEN, Not Playing To Individual Agenda’s, Working With A Conscience with A Sense of Social Responsibility, Not Being Involved In Sexual Harassment, Not Being A Pimp, Prostitute Or A Womaniser In The Hindu ? I Demand ANSWERS And ACCOUNTABILITY From The Hindu’s
Governing Council To These Three Straight And Simple UNANSWERED QUESTIONS, Questions To Which You Have Failed To Give ANSWERS For An UNTENABLE 10 Years, Despite As Many As 34 Whistleblower Appeal Petitions Sent To The Hindu Board, Where In This RELENTLESS WHISTLEBLOWER CRUSADE I Went One Step Further Than Internationally Renowned Whistleblowers Julian Assange and Edward Snowden , In Exposing Woeful Wrongdoings Within The System In The Hindu Since 2004,
Turned MAFIA. This was An Epic Saga of A Relentless Crusade of An INTERNAL WHISTLEBLOWER, Running Over An Epic 10 Years. If I May Ask, Why Are You Guys So Scared To Face me or The Truth or The Scam That You RAN AWAY From The INSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGE For 10 Years ? Why are You LAW MAKERS Of The Hindu Behaving Like COWARDS When You Need To Be (Wo)Men Of CHARACTER ? Why Are You So Scared To Look Into THE MIRROR Which I Have Placed Before You, In 69
Good Faith and Intention, Where You Need To Take A Hard Look in The Mirror, Reflect and Decide Whether or Not You Are The Best Example Of What You Would Like To reflect for those who call you their Leader . IN DENIAL Of THE UNDENIABLE and THE INDEFENSIBLE, It Gives The Obvious Suspicion And Conclusion That INSTITUTIONALLY, The Hindu Has “A Rogue Governing Council” To Protect And Perpetuate The 12 Year CORPORATE FRAUD In The Hindu. All I Can Say Is “Ceaser’s Wife Must Be Above Suspicion”. If
You Guys dare Deny Or Defend What I Have Cried Hoarse For
10 Years over 34 Whistleblower Petitions, I Dare You To Call For An All Encompassing Independent “Third Party” TRUTH COMMISSION Investigation Probe Into The Whole FRAUD SCAM Racket In The Hindu Since 2004, And The Mysterious And Murky Relationship Between The Then Rogue Managing Director Of The Hindu N.Murali And The Multi Dimensional SCAM And SEX Racket Criminal Conspiracy In Circulation Department Of The Hindu , Where Mysteriously And Murkily , He Has Been FIERCELY Shielding And Sheltering, Protecting,
PERPETRATORS, With PROMOTIONS And PAY OFFs (in What Appears To Be “Pay Out” QUID PRO QUO Bribes so that they will not cause you trouble Or To make them Keep A Secret Of A Privy Pandora’s Box) Right From 2004, When They Should Have Been PUNISHED And PROSECUTED. It Would Not Be Out Of Place To Mention That ROGUE LEADERS In Circulation Department are
Today Enjoying Perhaps
MONTHLY PAY PACKET In The Hindu Running in Lakhs Due To “THE LARGESSE”, With Huge Annual Increments And Incentives Doled Out Obviously AS BRIBES During The Last 12 Years Right From The Time CORPORATE FRAUD Set Into Circulation Department of The Hindu In 2004 At 70
A Point When READER BASED CIRCULATION And READERSHIP Saw A Rapid DECREASING TREND While RADHI BASED CIRCULATION, GROSS CORRUPT PRACTICES And CIRCULATION OUTSTANDING Rapidly INCREASED, Raising Huge Questions WHY, HOW And On WHAT Basis, Incompetents, Non Performers,
Criminals , Corrupt And Concubines
Were REWARDED with LARGESSE. An Employee Wise Enquiry Audit Probe Of Salaries, Promotions, Increments DOLED OUT In Circulation Department – vis a vis Results Delivered / Not Delivered During The Last15 Years Since 2000, Will Revealingly Expose A DISTINCT PATTERN. I Don’t Wish To Say Anything Further At This Stage, Where The Key Question To Be Probed Into Is, Who Authorised The Pay Off/ Promotion , On What Tangible Grounds , Where There Is A Hot Trail Leading To THE DOORSTEP Of The Two Timing MD Of The Hindu Mr N Murali , Leading As He Is A Double Life. Lavish Expenditure On LIQUOR (When The Company Is Struggling To Survive) And 5 Star Entertainment Expenses On Conferences, Team Meetings, Awards DOLED OUT In 5 Star Settings, In The Face Of Decreasing Reader And Readership And Increasing Corrupt Practices, Also Needs To Be Audited And Probed Into, As They All Form Part and Parcel Of QUID PRO QUO “ BRIBES”. Also To Be Audit Probed Into Is Circulation T A Bills And Circulation Imprest Expenses From 2000 Where “Murky” Expenses were Stealthily Pushed Through
The Broad Head “ Entertainment Expenses” . Also To Be Audit Probed Into From 2000, Is Supplementary Special Bills Raised By Circulation Clients / Agencies Under “Murky and Questionable” Extraordinary
“The Bypass Route” Directly by the M.D of The Company, Bypassing Accounts 71
Department , Which Raises Huge Questions on PROFESSIONALISM, TRANSPARENCY, ACCOUNTABILITY , QUID PRO QUO and VESTED INTEREST AGENDAS . This Is A HUGE PANDORA’S BOX Where The More You Dig Deep Into THE ROT, More Dirt and Worms Will Come Out Of The Can Of Worms, Like The Indrani and Peter Mukerjea Case, Where it would Raise Prosecution Questions Even on “The Chairman N Ram’s Casting Vote of 21 st October 2013 Under
A Favorable CLB Judgment of December 2010 etc etc , All Pointing Towards QUID PRO QUO , CONFLICT OF INTERESTS And VESTED INTEREST AGENDAS , Even In And Across THE HINDU BOARD ROOM . A COSY CLUB SYNDICATE – A MUTUAL BENEFIT SOCIETY IN THE HINDU, LIKE BCCI Why does such A BLOODY FARCE Happen in The Hindu ? Simply because “THE SYSTEM” in The Hindu IS ONE BIG “COSY CLUB”. Not Only Do We Have “A Cosy Club” Within THE CIRCULATION MAFIA, But we also have “A Cosy Club” At The Hindu Board Level, Where The System Thrives “IN QUID PRO QUO” Where CRIMINALS Thrive In Quid Pro Quo WITH COLLABORATOR REGULATOR DIRECTORS, Where The Hindu Board Thrives In Quid Pro Quo, Where MEN OF CHARACTER Who Dare To Question the Questionable, Or Disturb The Status Quo, Are Simply ELIMINATED – EXECUTION STYLE By THE MAFIA SYNDICATE. I Murali Krishnan who Dared
“To Question The Questionable” Was
A Victim of This Cosy Club Criminal Syndicate – A Mutual Benefit Society of The Hindu.
GAME OVER - NOWHERE TO RUN , NOWHERE TO HIDE Today The Hindu and The Hindu’s Governing Council Is In Deep Trouble, In
34 Whistleblower Petitions Over The Last 10 Years
(From A Victim of
abominable Abuse in A Case Involving Gross Human Rights Violations) It Will Implicatingly Prove(With The Complainant willing To Turn Approver Prosecution Witness To Stand Testimony In A Court Of Law) A Hot Trail Leading To The Top Of The Hindu, Right Into THE BOARDROOM Of The Hindu, Where, As A Much Aggrieved And Abused Appellant Victim I Will PUBLICLY Seek A Supreme Court Monitored Independent Investigation Of The Justice Mudgal Committee Order (Which Lead To The Undoing And Uncovering Of The Woeful Wrongdoings Of BCCI And Its President N.Srinivasan) Into The Woeful Wrongdoings In The Hindu During The Last 12 Years Since 2004 Where “MEDIA TURNED MAFIA”, Where, As A Horrible Victim Of Abuse Of Fundamental Rights of A Law Abiding Citizen, I Will Vociferously Urge Constitutional Authorities, Court Of Law And Civil Society At Large, TO RETHINK, On Giving Blanket Constitutional Powers Of Freedom Of Press and Right To Self Regulation To Media, In The Changed Circumstances Where “MEDIA Turned MAFIA”, Too Has Become CORRUPT And CRIMINAL In Intent And Interests, To A New Low Today, Where Even The Hallowed Hindu Group, Living Symbol Of TRUTH And TRUST, Too Has Joined The Criminal Bandwagon, Become The Hotbed Of Crime And Corruption, Illegalities And Immoralities, To A New Low Where They Are A Serious Threat To FAITH Of Law Abiding Citizens And Civil Society At Large.
AT THE END OF THE TETHERS When Push Comes To Shove, Pushed To The Wall, A Day Is Not Far Off, When A Die Hard Loyalist Of The Hindu Says ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, Throws LOYALTY And RESTRAINT To The Winds , And Says “To Hell With The Bloody Hindu Group” And Turns Approver Whistleblower And Prosecution Witness To Stand Testimony Against The Woeful Wrongdoings In The Hindu Group since 2004,In A Court Of Enquiry Or A Court Of Law, Where I Am DETERMINED To Take This 12 Year Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Case To Its Logical Conclusion
REDEMPTION JUSTICE, Where The Choice Before The Hindu’s Governing Council At THE CROSSROADS MOMENT OF THE HINDU GROUP When it is Today “Under Public and Prosecution Scrutiny”, Is, Between Going For AN OUT OF COURT SETTLEMENT OR End Up Being INDICTED In A Court Of Law Where The Hindu Will End Up Committing INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE,
INSTITUTIONAL CREDIBILITY Lost For Ever ,And Mr. N. Murali Meeting His Waterloo Nemesis And Going To Jail . This Is Not About READER , READERSHIP Or REVENUES But About A ROTTEN LEADERSHIP At The Helm Of Affairs In The Hindu Since 2004 Who Hijacked The Institution, Who In GREED To FAST TRACK NUMBERS The FAKE And FRAUDULENT WAY, Suicidal Path of,
Have Tragically Lead THE HINDU GROUP On A
Not Only Breaching LAKSMANREKHA’S , But Far Worse
BREAKING THE LAW , Where The Hindu Is Heading Towards INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE . In What Is A Concerted Crusade Of A Campaign Of An Aggrieved Complainant Employee DETERMINED To Get CLOSURE JUSTICE , In 2015, If One may Look Back Carefully and Recall, I, Murali Krishnan An Aggrieved Complainant Employee, A Veteran Employee Who Served The Institution With Distinction And Dedicated Loyalty For A Lifetime 25+Years, In Perhaps An Unprecedented Development In WHISTLEBLOWER Or CORPORATE HISTORY, SHAMED And SLAMMED The 74
Dubious Hindu’s Governing Council
IN PUBLIC “WITHIN THE HINDU ” When
I A Whistleblower Gave Untenable Hindu Board Members A PUBLIC DRESSING DOWN, NAMING AND SHAMING Implicating Issues And Individuals IN PUBLIC (When The Institution Impacting Issue Should Have Been Resolved Within The Hindu’s Boardroom) By Taking My Battle To 2237 Employees Of The Hindu Group, Through 2237 Individual E Mails, Ironically Sent Through The Server Of The Hindu, Where Bang At Noon on16th February 2015, A Monday, When Every Employee Of The Hindu, Including Editorial Staff, Beginning A New Week, Were In The Beehive Of Activity To Promote Business Of The Hindu Group , BANG Lands An E BOMB on Their Computer Screen, (An Explosive 32 Page E Bomb With Voluminous Incriminating And Embarrassing
Attachments), Titled CORPORATE
FRAUD IN THE HINDU. Just Imagine From An Employees Perspective in The Hindu, How It Would Have Felt Like, A Bolt from the Blue, A Thunderbolt, To Receive An Email On Corporate Fraud, Criminal And Concubine Values In A TEMPLE OF VALUES, Which ROCKED and SHOCKED The Daylight Out Of One And Everyone, In And Across The Hindu. It Stunned Hindu Employees In And Across The Country And Even Abroad, With My Cluster Bomb of An Email going To As Far Corners As Washington , London , Singapore , Ontario Canada , Beijing Etc Etc, Which Destroyed THE CREDIBILITY Of Criminal Circulation Department Of The Hindu And Damaged REPUTATION Of The Hindu And Its Dubious Board Members (Who Are Today Under Employee Scrutiny where They Are Keenly Watching What The Hindu’s Governing Council Does To CLEAN UP The Rot) In The Eyes Of Their Own Employees, Where Furious At Being Unlawfully DENIED JUSTICE (And My FINAL SETTLEMENT) For A Shocking 10 Years in Gross Violations of A Citizen Employees FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS, I Was BOLD And BLUNT In Calling SPADE A SPADE, Where I Did Not Mince Words Or Thoughts In SPEAKING MY MIND, As I Went HAMMER And TONGS, All Guns Blazing, In SPEAKING OUT About AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH Within The Hindu, As I TORE INTO The Untenable Hindu Board IN 75
PUBLIC , On The Dark And Dirty Side Of “THE DARK UNDERBELLY OF THE HINDU”, Which Left THE CRIMINAL WRONGDOERS And The Untenable BOARD MEMBERS Of The Hindu STUNNED , SHELL SHOCKED And SQUIRMING In Shock And Shame. It Was For The First Time In The Hindu’s 137 Year History That An Employee Was Taking On An UNTENABLE BOARD , Head On , In Public . GOING IN FOR THE KILL My Dear Board Members Of The Hindu’s Governing Council, WHILE In 2015, I
Murali Krishnan, The Aggrieved Complainant Of 10 Years,
EMBARRASSED The Hindu’s Dubious Governing Council, In 2016, As A Part Of My Relentless Crusade Campaign, Where I Realise That PUBLICITY And PUBLIC OUTRAGE Is The Key To My Finally Getting CLOSURE JUSTICE In This 10 Year Old
Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy, I Intend EXPOSING The Hindu’s
Dubious Governing Council For Its DUPLICITY and DECEIT, By GOING PUBLIC Today (23rd April 2016, Saturday), To Social Networking Sites By Uploading This Shocking Story On Twitter and Facebook, Taking My 10 Year Battle “OUTSIDE THE HINDU”, Which could Potently and Potentially Lead to PILs And PUBLIC PROSECUTION, Where I am DETERMINED To Take This Criminal Conspiracy Case To Its Logical Conclusion, Come What May, HELL Or HIGH WATER. It
R.K.Pachauri Sleaze Scandal, Where A PROTECTOR Turned PERPETRATOR, Which Lead To TERI And Its Governing Council Being Lambasted And Lampooned In Print And Social Media With The Issue Being Raised Even in Parliament, Where It Made National And International Headlines, For The Wrong Reasons, Where they lost their CREDIBILITY And REPUTATION, Not Just Outside The Institution, But Also Within The Institution .
THE MOMENT OF TRUTH The Fundamental Question Which One and Everyone, Including The Court of Law, Will be asking is, Why did the Mastermind N. Murali or For that Matter The Hindu’s Governing Council Fail to Act in Damage Control in this 10 Year Whistleblower Case Exposing “The 12 Year Satyam Fraud in The Hindu”? The Answer is Straight and Simple, Which is Best Explained by Disgraced B.
The Satyam Fraud. “Its like Riding A Tiger, Not Knowing How to Get Off, Without being Eaten”. This Infamous Quote of A Fraudster, Sums it All, Where The Hindu is Today Caught in “A Quagmire Quicksand of A, N. Murali Made Mess” Where it would be very difficult for The Hindu As An Institution to Explain or Extricate itself Out of This “Man Made Mess”, An Intricate Intertwined “Web of A Mess” Where there are Too Many Critical Elements involved, Which could precipitate A Chain Reaction In “A House Of Cards”. This Is “THE” Moment Of Truth For The 137 Year Old Hindu And The Hindu’s Governing Council, A Choice Between Bringing CLOSURE To This 10 Year Ghost Skeleton Of A Case, Or Face CLOSURE Of The Hindu, Like “The News of The World” in U.K. in 2011. As An AGGRIEVED COMPLAINANT EMPLOYEE All I Can Say Is That We Have An R.K.Pachauri In THE HINDU. Today Mr. N. Murali’s Position is As Untenable As Disgraced R.K. Pachauri in the TERI Case, Who has “Today been asked To Leave The Organization” By An Embattled TERI’s Governing Council, After Stonewalling An Inconvenient Truth For More Than A Year. 77
In A WORST CASE SCENARIO, I Murali Krishnan A Veteran Insider Witness Whistleblower Employee Who Is Also An Aggrieved Appellant Complainant In This Case, Am Prepared To Turn APPROVER And Become PROSECUTION WITNESS To Depose And Stand Testimony In A Court Of Law on The Woeful Wrongdoings in The Hindu Since 2004, Which Can Only Lead To INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE Of The Hindu, Besides Sending Quite A Few Of The Rogue Leaders Of The Hindu To Jail. Enough Damage Has Already Been Done, Where , As Board Members Of The Hindu’s Governing Council, Your Individual Credibility, Credentials And Character Are In Serious Scrutiny Question Today. In A Choice Between SAVING The 137 Year Hindu Group,
The Hindu Committing INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE, It Is Time For The Hindu’s Governing Council To Immediately Convene An Urgent EGM Board Meeting, Like TERI’s Governing Council Which Went Into FIREFIGHTING DAMAGE CONTROL in The Face Of A SNOWBALLING CRISIS, And Besides Asking Untenable N Murali To Leave, (The Man Is Touching His 70s) Ensure that “Justice Is Not Just Done But Seen To Be Done” In This 10 Year Ghost Skeleton Of A Case (Where An Innocent Victim on Death Row For A Traumatic 10 Years, Has Been Waiting , Waiting , For JUSTICE For 10 Years), To Prevent A FIRESTORM Of PUBLIC OUTRAGE, After All
It Is SHAMEFUL And
SHOCKING ABUSE OF POWER To Send An Innocent To The Gallows For CAPITAL CRIMES Committed By Someone Else, In What can only be called A FAKE ENCOUNTER KILLING of A Law Abiding, Citizen Employee of The Hindu. In this Context, Its Sad to note that Ms. Malini Parthasarthy, Where She Vociferously Questions on The Israt Jahan Case As A Fake Encounter Killing on her Twitter Page, She has been INHUMANLY INSENSITIVE to The Fake 78
Encounter Killing of A Company Employee Murali Krishnan Perpetrated Within Her
No Crime, No Charge Sheet, No Credible Trial Process, In What can only be termed “Murder in Broad Daylight”. Ms. Malini Parthasarthy’s Tweets on the Israt Jahan Case reads: 1. How does it redeem Israt’s Murder in A Fake Encounter ? 2. The Rule of Law and Due Process must be followed when identifying a person as a Terrorist. 3. But Core Point, Basic Justice was Denied – Presumed Innocent till Proven Guilty – Remains Ignored. While Vociferously Questioning the Killing of Suspect Terrorist Israt Jahan, This very same Ms. Malini Parthasarathy has NEVER RAISED These Very Questions in The Hindu Board Room during the Last 10 Years Despite 34 Appeal Petitions sent to her by A Victim of A Fake Encounter Killing in The Hindu in 2005. Fundamental Question is, Where did Ms. Malini Parthasarathy’s Conviction of Conscience go in the Murali Krishnan Fake Encounter Killing Case Perpetrated in The Hindu in 2005 ? Isn’t this HYPOCRISY, DOUBLE SPEAK and Case of Having DOUBLE STANDARDS,
followed when Identifying Murali Krishnan as A Terrorist.
Ms. Malini Parthasarathy Raise her voice of conscience in The Hindu Board Room and take A Principled Stand For 10 Years, Where Basic Justice was Denied – presumed Innocent Till Proven Guilty – Remains Ignored.
Question to Ms.Malini Parthasarathy is, Isn’t this MURDER of Murali Krishnan in Broad Daylight ? Its Time For Ms.Malini Parthasarathy to Introspect and do some Soul Searching Whether she has been Fair and Consistent, And Try to Correct her Mistake At Least Now – Better Late than Never. PUBLICITY SEEKING Chairman Mr. N. Ram Who Seems to be driven more by Photo Ops rather than by Principles, Hypocritically Harps on Twitter “Read Mukul Kesavan on the Sacking of Harsha Bhogle”, When the Man has Not Cared to read Whistleblower Murali Krishnan’s 34 Whistleblower Petitions on Arbitrary Sacking of Murali Krishnan, For 10 Years. Its Sad that UTTERLY INSENSITIVE and INHUMAN Directors of The Hindu Board , Are Behaving like “Page 3 Socialite Directors” Rather Than “Serious and Socially Sensitive Directors”, Where Fundamentally there is No Consistency WHATSOEVER between Their PREACHINGS and PRACTICES , With Some HYPOCRITES who Preach Communist Values But Practice CRONY CAPITALISM , Protecting and Perpetuating CRONY CORRUPTION . All I Can Say In Conclusion Is That People Who Don’t Have The COURAGE or The CHARACTER To Own Up Their Mistakes, Can Only Be Called COWARDS. It Will Require POLITICAL WILL, And Not PRETENDING To Be POLITICALLY CORRECT When Things Are PRINCIPALLY ALL WRONG In The Hindu , To CLEAN UP and Do COURSE CORRECTION. It’s For One And Everyone In THE HINDU’s GOVERNING COUNCIL To INTROSPECT And Do Some SOUL SEARCHING Over Something A Diehard 80
Loyalist Well Wisher Of The Hindu Group Honestly Feels Concerned About, At THE CROSSROADS MOMENT OF THE HINDU GROUP, To MAKE HISTORY Or BECOME HISTORY, Learning To Work To Our TRADITIONAL STRENGTHS Rather Than To THE WEAKNESSES OF OUR COMPETITORS. Can The Hindu Governing Council Turn Things Around on Its Head, And Turn Huge INSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGES To INSTITUTIONAL OPPORTUNITIES,
POSSIBLE? Will The Hindu Group Rise “Like The Proverbial Phoenix From The Ashes” ??? That’s A Million Dollar Question To Which The Answer Lies In THE HINDU BOARD ROOM, Where I Have Now Put The Ball And The Case In The Court Of The Hindu’s Governing Council.
WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GET GOING I Have Proved It In My Kochi Experience And Experiment, That It Is Possible To TURN THINGS AROUND , Make The SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE MADE POSSIBLE , Turn HUGE CHALLENGES To HUGE OPPORTUNITIES , And RISE UP From THE ASHES Like The PROVERBIAL PHOENIX , When A LOSS MAKING REGION Became A RUNAWAY MONEY SPINNER , Where THE WORST REGION In The Country Became THE BEST REGION In The Country,
UNCOMPROMISING IN PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES . Towards CLEAN UP Of THE ROT, It Is Crucial And Critical, For An In depth Insight And Investigation, That The Hindu Has
A No Nonsense
CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT To Head The Independent Investigation Audit 81
IMPROPRIETIES Involved, Where Sadly The Two Timing Managing Director Of The Hindu Mr.N.Murali Had MISUSED His
CA Qualification Towards
Woeful Wrongdoing Ends, Where The Murky and Dirty TRUTH will Come Out in the Open Once there is A Criminal Investigation by A Supreme Court Monitored Probe. It needs Particular Mention That The TERI’s Governing Council Has Deepak Parekh, A Chartered Accountant Of Impeccable Reputation, As An Independent Board Member, The Very Same Deepak Parekh Who Chaired “The CLEAN UP Of The Satyam Fraud Scam” In 2009. It Appears The Hindu’s Governing Council Will Need An UPRIGHT NO NONSENSE Independent Director Like Deepak Parekh, TO CHAIR “The CLEAN UP Of The 12 Year SATYAM FRAUD In The Hindu”. With Indian Banking Sector Being In A Terrible MANMADE MESS Today, With Huge NPAs Of Over Rs6 Lakh Crores, The Government Of India Is Looking To Rope In CREDIBLE INDUSTRY STALWARTS, Such As Ratan Tata, N.R.Narayana Murthy, Deepak Parekh And NainaLal Kidwai For Its Bank Board Bureau (BBB) Towards CLEAN UP Of THE ROT in Banking Sector And Bringing In Good Corporate Governance Practices. It Will Require Something DECISIVE, And DRASTIC, To CLEAN UP The Rot, And SAVE The Hindu Group, Drowned In NPAs (Circulation And Collection Manmade Mess) And NPLs (Non Performing And Corrupt Employees) From COLLATERAL DAMAGE DISASTER, Where The Company Needs To At Least Now Have ZERO TOLERANCE To WRONGDOING Or CORRUPTION Of ANY ORDER where You Cannot Have A CALIBRATED Rating On A Scale Of 1 To 10 For CORRUPTION And CORRUPT PRACTICES , Where, To Put The 82
FEAR OF THE DEVIL In One And Everyone Within The Hindu , Including The CEO, There Needs To Be A WHISTLEBLOWER ACT And CELL In The Hindu , Besides Appointing AN EXTERNAL OMBUDSMAN To Address, Redress And Act On Wrongdoing Complaints Of Any Order, So That No Employee Suffers The Way I Did, Having Lost A Thriving Career And 12 Years Of My Life, Due To Lack Of INTERNAL CHECKS And BALANCES Within THE HINDU. Time For CEO Rajiv C Lochan To Move Into DAMAGE LIMITATION Redeem
“A PROFESSIONAL”, And Not “A MERCENARY” Where He Has Committed Some SERIOUS FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKES During The Last 22 Months ,Where
It Appears MAMMON
ENDS Matter More Than MEANS,
METHODS And MORALS As The Newly Appointed Managing Director & CEO Of The Hindu, Which Raises SERIOUS QUESTIONS On His INTENT And INTEGRITY TO INSTITUTION WELL BEING Of This 137 Year Old Iconic Group, Where What He Needs To Understand is That He Is AS ACCOUNTABLE For The WOEFUL WRONGDOINGS In The Hindu As Anyone Else At The Helm Of Affairs Of The Hindu Today. In GREED For QUICKFIX BUCKS And BUSINESS, He Mr. Rajiv C Lochan Seems To Have COMPLETELY LOST SIGHT OF “THE BIGGER PICTURE And OBJECTIVE”, As If There No Tomorrow, Which Can Only Lead TO INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE. Its Nothing Short Of HARA-KIRI Of A 137 Year Iconic INSTITUTION. If Mr. Rajiv C. Lochan Fails To Move DECISIVELY Into DAMAGE CONTROL And Do COURSE
WRONGDOINGS , He Will Have Only Himself To Blame For The COLLATERAL DAMAGE CONSEQUENCES To Come.
For Chairman N.Ram Who has been Chairing over This CORPORATE FRAUD For The Last 10 Years Afflicted By CONFLICT OF INTEREST And CONFLICT OF LOYALTY To An Untenable Sibling ,All I Can Say Is That, He Needs To Draw Signals From Ex Chairman B.V.Sreekantan Nair Of TERI’s Governing
RESPONSIBILITY. The 2 Independent Directors Ms Vinita Bali of The Britannia Legacy And Mr.S.Mahalingam of The TCS Legacy, With Their REPUTATION Tarnished during The Last 20 Months,
Need To INTROSPECT And Ask Their
CONSCIENCE, How True They Have Been To CORPORATE GOVERNANCE And CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
During Their 20 Month
Innings As Independent Directors In The Hindu’s Governing Council Since September 2014, And Ask Themselves, Heart Of Heart, Whether They Were As FAIR And FIRM As Luminary INDEPENDENT DIRECTORS
Parekh, Naina Lal Kidwai And Kiran Mazumdar Shaw Of TERI’s Governing Council . As INDEPENDENT DIRECTORS It Is For Them To ENFORCE The GOOD CORPORATE GOVERNANCE Otherwise STEP DOWN From The DUBIOUS HINDU BOARD . It’s For Untenable N.Murali To Draw Signals And Take The Wise Decision To Prevent INDIVIDUAL And INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE . ALL I Seek From The Hindu’s Governing Council In DAMAGE CONTROL Is To Give Me A “WOEFULLY MISTREATED” Veteran Employee of The Hindu My Right To A HONOURABLE DISCHARGE, After All There Is Nothing More Important Than HONOUR For A Sensitive Self Respecting Human Being Who Cherishes His Self Esteem The Most, For A Person Who Throughout Has Worked with A Sense of Social Responsibility, For A Person Who Has Lived 84
And Lead By SELF EXAMPLE. After All I Have Served This Institution With Uncompromising Devotion, Dedication And Distinction For A Lifetime 25 Years Of LOYALTY And INTEGRITY. Looking Back, During My 25+ Year Innings In The Hindu, I Set Such High Standards In Leadership And Excellence, Principles And Practices , Growth And Values, That It Will Be Difficult, If Not Impossible, For Anyone To Dream Of Touching The Everest Heights I Touched, Let Alone Deliver, Where Fundamentally I PRACTICED WHAT I PREACHED AND MADE SURE I PREACHED ONLY WHAT I PRACTICED . I Have No Regret Whatsoever For Any Of My Well Considered Decisions In The Hindu During The Last 36 Years Since 1981 , Where If History Were To Repeat
I WOULD DO EXACTLY THE SAME, ALL OVER AGAIN, Where To Me Bottom line, Beyond Being A Good Professional, IS TO BE A GOOD HUMAN BEING .
TOWARDS CLOSURE (My Expectations) Though A Horribly Wronged “Victim of Outrageous Injustice and Gross Human Rights Abuse” Of “The War Times Crimes Order” Where No Money Can Ever Compensate What All I have Lost during the last 12 Years of Unspeakable Trauma, Torture, Humiliation and Suffering, Better Late Than Never, I Seek CLOSURE JUSTICE. Today at the Sunset of My Life, When I am Touching 57 Years, Towards Bringing In Some Sense Of CLOSURE To This Whole Shockingly Scandalous and Shameful Saga, Where To Me Institution is Larger than Individuals, I Have Only One Expectation– CLOSURE JUSTICE, Towards VINDICATION, To Get My Fair Name Cleared of Fake Charges in A Fake Case. Towards CLOSURE , My Expectations From The Hindu Management at this Distant Stage , Where Justice Delayed Is Justice Denied – Meaning If Timely Justice is not Provided To The Sufferer , It Loses Its Importance And Violates Human Rights , Are The Following : 1. A Honorable Discharge duly taking into account My 25+Years of Outstanding Service to The Hindu, And Also Taking Into Account My Remaining 15 Years to Superannuation which would have enabled me to Complete A Rare 40 Years Of Lifetime Service To One Single Institution – The Hindu. 2. A Just and Fair Compensation Settlement for the Outrageous Injustice done to me and all that I and my family have Suffered for Last 12 Years since 2004, When Cheating, Corruption and Criminal Fraud set into Circulation Department of The Hindu, Besides taking into Account the Rs.8 Lakhs + I have so far spent in this 10 Year Relentless Crusade Battle for Justice.
3. A Letter from the Leadership in The Hindu Withdrawing The Baseless Defamatory Charges In The Company’s Letter dated 9th November 2006, And Acknowledging My Honest Service of 25+Years To Institution . 4. Pay me My Long Overdue Salary and Perks for Sept. 2006, Cash Compensation for 30 Days Unavailed Earned Leave, My Bonus / Incentive for 2006, Everything Which Was Unlawfully Withheld by The Two Timing Managing Director Mr. N. Murali, At The Obvious “Blackmail” Behest of His “Partner in Woeful Wrongdoings” CCM, Which Shockingly Remains Unsettled to this Day Even 10 Years After Being Relieved , In Perhaps An Unprecedented and Unheard of Abuse of Power in the annals of Corporate or Civil History. 5. Bestow me My Long Overdue Service Recognition Award for 25 Years of Completed Service, In The Next Annual Day Function Something which to me Means The World, As it will Prove Validation and Vindication to me, To Get My Name Cleared of All the Faked Up Case and Charges. 6. Provide Me With A Copy of The Hindu Kochi Edition (or at least a facsimile copy) with My Name in the Imprint of Kochi Edition of The Hindu of One of The Dates During the period when I was The Printer of Kochi Edition of The Hindu from 10th Sept. 2000 to 30th August 2005, As My Final Lasting Memory of My Association With The Hindu. 7. Permission to Officially Visit Circulation Department of The Hindu and Kochi Office of The Hindu to bid One Final Goodbye, To Something Which to me was Oxygen, And Home, And My First Wife, For 25+ Years, So That We Can Move Forward, Our Own Ways, Quietly Leaving The Past Behind.
8. Restore my Last Designation of Regional Manager (which I had earned through Honest, Back Breaking Hard Work of 17 Years) From The Humiliating Double Demotion Post of Sr. Circulation Executive Imposed On Me during the Course of the Inhuman Abuse Perpetrated On Me in 2005, Which will Restore My Lost Reputation and Self Esteem, and Heal My Wounds of 12 Traumatic Years to Some Extent. I am Sure This Is Not Asking For Too Much for A CLOSURE, So That A Traumatized Outraged and Enraged Soul Can Finally Rest In Peace, as I try to Avoid Precipitating A Huge Manmade Internal Crises Of Sorts in The Hindu Towards Institutional Suicide. Having Put these Facts before you, I leave it to the Wisdom of The Hindu’s Governing Council to Quickly take Matters Forward To A CLOSURE. All I can Caution in conclusion is that, GOING PUBLIC The Scam Scandal is Now, Out in the Open, Trending , Where the more you Delay TO ACT Decisively in Damage Control in Settling this Institutional Impaction Issue, More Serious would be the Damage and the Consequences for Institution and Individuals Looking Forward to An Early Settlement.
SATYAMEVAJAYETE – TRUTH AND JUSTICE WILL TRIUMPH.

EPILOGUE “WILFULFRAUD IN THE HINDU” Why Is This Such A Serious Issue – A Pernicious Issue With Potential Far Reaching Implications And Collateral Damage Consequences To Come . Whatever Transpired And Conspired In The Hindu Circulation Operations Since 2004 Was WRONGDOING Of The Worst Order – Procedurally, Legally, Ethically, Which Is Something Like Saying If You Want Quick Money- Go Rob The Bank. This Is WILFUL FRAUD Perpetrated In Broad Daylight MISUSING,
TRUST Of A
Century Of LEGACY VALUES Of Pre Eminence And Pre Independence Of A Once Iconic Institution, And PRIVILEGED CONSTITUTIONAL POWERS Of Freedom Of Press And Right To Self Regulation (Which Is Essentially An Editorial Right MISUSED In The Hindu Towards Furthering The Newspaper Groups BUSINESS INTERESTS – The Fake and Fraudulent Way) Towards QUICK FIX Bucks And Business, With The MISPLACED BELIEF That It Is Okay To CHEAT, To COMMIT FRAUD And To Indulge In CORRUPT PRACTICES In A Mercenary Society Of The 21st Century World Where Crime , Cheating , Criminal Fraud And Corruption Is Rampant In Civil Society And The Corporate World . Ranbaxy Did It, So Did Volkswagen And BP, And Long Before Them, Enron And WorldCom, Mitsubishi Motor Corp, General Motors, Ford, Honda, Shell, Exxon Mobil,
JP Morgan Chase And Co, Citigroup Inc., UBS AG, And Bank Of America, Not Forgetting Satyam And Saradha, ALL CAUGHT CHEATING, Manipulating Data And Numbers, LYING To Customers, Regulators And Shareholders With Frauds, HalfLies, Price Fixing, Bribes, Where “Found” Is A New Operative Word, Where Foul Becomes A Crime Only When It is Spotted, Where Till Then This Is Just “Business Smarts”.
COMPANIES LIE , Obviously to protect their carefully nurtured Corporate Reputation, And Of course “To Enhance Performance”, Like Sportspersons use Steroids To Boost Results. These are understandable, though Not Condonable Reasons. Far More Insidious and Ultimately Much More Dangerous are Instances of CORPORATE LYING That Stem From “The Egos Of Corporate Leaders”. The CEO Who thunders “ I Don’t Care How , But I Want 20% Growth In Sales, Where He Says To Hell With The Reputation, Find Me A way to Beat The Regulator. This Machismo-Driven LYING Is Today Far More Prevalent Within Companies Than Is Believed, But It Is Lethal In Terms Of The Collateral Damage Consequences. The Problem Is, Such CEOs Move On, Leaving Behind Doomed Organisations. The Scrap Heap Of Business History Is Filled With The Debris Of Companies Whose FOUNDATIONS were Corroded By FRAUD And LYING. It Is Against This Background Context That One Needs To Look At Whatever FRAUD Has Been Transpiring And Conspiring In The Hindu For The Last 12 Years Of CORPORATE FRAUD , Since 2004, Which Can Only Come Under The Defines And Definition Of WILFUL FRAUD Of The SFO SERIOUS FRAUD ORDER. A SYSTEMIC FRAUD I , Murali Krishnan ,The Internal Whistleblower Employee Had Warned The Hindu Board Full 10 Years Back, In My Very 1st Whistleblower Book Of My Epic 36 Book Series, Sent On 18th September 2006 To All Hindu Board Members By Registered Post-A/D, That, Fundamentally It Is THE GREATEST FRAUD For A Newspaper, That Too of The Hindu’s Legacy, Stature And Standing, Being Involved In The Criminal Act Of COUNTERFEITING SIGNATURES On A Mass Scale, Of Students, School Heads, News Agents, Running To Tens Of Thousands, In A 101
SYSTEMIC FORGERY One Of Its Kind, All To Create FAKE DOCUMENTS, Which Is Done, Day In Day Out, For Months Together, Twice A Year, Every Year, Every ABC Audit, All To PUSH THROUGH FAKE CIRCULATION Making A Mockery Farce Of ABC AUDIT. Student Subscription Scheme (SSS ) By Itself Was A Huge Scam Racket In The Hindu, Where Subsidised Copies Of The Hindu Meant For Students And Schools Were Surreptitiously Sold WHOLESALE At Premium, On Profit, OUTSIDESCHOOLS In A RACKET By Itself And MARKETAs RADHI, After It Was
CLAIMED For Inclusion In ABC CERTIFIED COPIES, Where It Appeared RADHI And RACKETEERING Mattered More, Than READER And READERSHIP, In The Radicalised Hindu Of The 21st Century. The Dark Underbelly Of The Hindu – A Cloak And Dagger Operation, DECRIMINALISING FRAUD. Just Imagine A Rogue Corporation Of A Company, Officially Having Standard Operating Procedures SOP’s On Ways And Means To CHEAT And To HOODWINK ABC Audit And Auditors, By TRAINING Indoctrinated Circulation Staff To Cheat With
By Having Periodic H R Training Sessions in Corporate Office Of The Hindu, Where “Cherry Picked” Pliable People From All Regional Offices Are ORALLY Given Training By ABC Operation Heads R Varadamani And K S Raghavan In A CLOSED ROOM, Where Nothing Said, Is Ever Put In Writing Or Mail, Or Discussed Outside, Where Regional Sales Staff Are Officially Provided With A Set Of Multi Coloured Pens, Where News Agents Rubber Stamps Are OFFICIALLY” MANUFACTURED, DUPLICATED And FAKED
“Within The Regional Offices Of The Hindu,
Besides Being Provided A Set Of Guidelines On Do’s And Don’ts As An SOP To Do A Perfect Faking Job To Become MASTER FORGERERS, Where News Agency Stamped Agreements Are Being Systematically SCANNED And Sent To Regional Offices To Do A Perfect Counterfeiting and Forgery Job, Where In A Major Corporate 102
DECENTRALISED, Where Masquerading In The Name Of
Professionalism And Devolution Of Powers In The New Professionalised “SET UP”, ABC FRAUD Was Officially DECENTRALISED From Corporate Office Of The Hindu, Where In , ALL CORPORATE FRAUD Trail LEADS, All News Agency Files, Stamped Agreements, Accounts And System Management Were “Bag And Baggage” Hastily Bundled And Shunted Out Of The Head Office Of ABC FRAUD, To All Regional Offices In A Hush
Hush Operation , Not Because Circulation
Department Had Suddenly Become Professional In Their Circulation Work, But Simply Because THE TOP LEADERSHIP Of The Multi Dimensional Conspiracy Of A Scam Racket At CORPORATE OFICE Of The Hindu Felt That Things Were Getting Too Hot For Comfort With An Internal Whistleblower Hot On Their Heels , Where Essentially, This Was “A Red Herring” Of A DIVERSIONARY TACTIC To Take The FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER Trail Of The Hindu ABC FRAUDGATE, Off The Trail And Tracks Of Corporate Office Of The Hindu, Where It All Began 12 Years Back, In 2004 , When The Corporate Office Of The Hindu Turned To The Corporate Office Of FRAUD – ABC FRAUD. To Think All “THIS ORGANISED FRAUD” Escaped The Scrutiny Of ABC Audit , For 24 ABC Audits, Where In ABC 2016 Ist Half Audit, THE HINDU ABC FRAUD Will Be Celebrating The 25th Silver Jubilee Anniversary Of HOODWINKING ABC, In A WHITE COLLAR CRIME One Of Its Kind. A Silver Jubilee Of Sorts To Celebrate . UNCHECKED And UN CHECKED For Full 12 Years This JUGGERNAUT Of A FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER Which Was Sadly and Ironically, Conceived And Conceptualized By “ An Ex ABC INSIDER” Mr.N.Murali, Law Maker Turned Law Breaker, Who Was In The ABC Inner Circle Council Of Management In The 80’s And 90’s ,Who Knows The Ins And Outs, Inside And Insides Of ABC and How The System In ABC Functions , The Loopholes , The Leeway , The Lacunas, The Legalities On 103
How To Be POLITICALLY CORRECT And How To Insidiously HOODWINK ABC And Its AUDIT Taking Advantage Of The Weaknesses And Limitations Of ABC As A Regulatory Body And Get Away With WRONGDOING , A Calculative Chartered Accountant That He Is, Where Suffice To Say He Has Taken The ABC For Granted Given The WOEFUL WRONGDOINGS Perpetrated , Protected And Perpetuated In The Hindu Since 2004 In ABC FRAUD . Today THE FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER Of 2004 Is Coming Back To Destroy Its Creator And The Company, As, In 12 Years THIS MONSTER Of 2004 Has Taken MONSTROUS PROPORTIONS, To Levels That The New CEO Of KSL Mr. Rajiv C Lochan’s DUBIOUS PRACTICES Of
Years Which Is SUSPECT And
SELECTIVE In INTENT , Indicate That He Is In A SMOOTH TRANSITION, Conniving, “Carrying Forward” The N.Murali Subversive Agenda Operation, Where He Is “HAND IN GLOVE”, Where Today, Essentially, Mr.Rajiv C Lochan is Best Described As Nothing But “Old N Murali Wine In A New Bottle – In A New Professional Glitzy Packaging”, Where Effectively ABC FRAUD Operation Has Got Professionalised In The Hindu . He Is More A Prop Proxy Front Of N.Murali, Carrying Forward N.Murali’s Hidden Agenda, Where Sadly An Individual, One Individual ,Mr.N.Murali , Has Become Larger Than The Institution. It’s A SYSTEMIC ROT And SYSTEMIC FAILURE In The Hindu Towards Sure shot SUICIDE And SELF DESTRUCTION As The 137 Year Old Institution Torpedoes Towards DISASTER. MACHIAVELLIAN MACHINATION Against This Whole Murky Background Of A 12 Year History Of SYSTEMIC FAKING And FRAUD, Obviously It Raises Huge Scrutiny Questions And Suspicions, On The CREDIBILITY And “CLAIM” Of The Hindu In May/June 2016 On The Pages Of The Hindu Newspaper, And On Facebook, Trivializing and Taunting Other Newspaper Publications, About An Overnight, Over An Audit Period, “Striking Gold” Jackpot 20% Growth, In Circulation Of The Hindu In ABC 2015-II HALF, Like Manna From Heaven.
It Defies Logic And Explanation, How Does Say, A Vijayawada Region And Edition Of The Hindu Generate An Unbelievable ABC Growth Of 65.71% In Just 6 Months
A Growth, Of Almost 23000 Copies In Just 6 Months, Mind You On a Mere 34967 Copy Circulation Base(ABC 2015-Ist Half), Where Essentially You Are CLAIMING Your Circulation Has Almost Doubled IN JUST 6 MONTHS. In An Extraordinary SEQUENCE CHAIN OF EVENTS Last Month, In What Seems SUSPECT And CAREFULLY “ORCHESTRATED” Towards A LARGER HIDDEN AGENDA, Look At The Suspect Sequence Of Events In What Seems “Synchronised” And “Choreographed” To A “Pre Scripted” Pattern. On 31st May 2016 The Hindu Comes Out With A News Story ANNOUNCING “An All India 20 % Growth In Circulation Of The Hindu Over A Six Month Period In ABC 2015 – IInd HALF. Next On 5th June 2016 The Hindu Comes Out With The Following Facebook Post (Posted On The Facebook Page Of RGM Apollo Raj Kumar ) With A “Meaningful” Comparative Analysis Of Growth Trend
Of Various Major
Newspapers In ABC 2015-IInd HALF, Meaningfully Titled FASTER, HIGHER, STRONGER ,Where Among Several Suggestions, The Hindu Is Projected As The Fasting Growing Newspaper With All India Growth Of 20.32% Where The Times Of India Is Presented As The Newspaper With The Lowest All India Growth Of A Minuscule 00.25%, Where For The Hindu Vijayawada (+65.71%), Bangalore +36.13% - Miscalculated as +31.13% In The Post), Hyderabad (+33.52%), Kolkatta (+23.28%), Trichy (21.85%) And Kochi (+19.76% Miscalculated as + 18.76%) Are PROJECTED As The 6 FASTEST GROWING MARKETS Of The Hindu, (Something Which Saw Ex Editor Ms Malini Parthasarathy Indulge In “Jingoism” on Twitter , Saying BRAVO, And While Claiming Self Credit For The Dubious 20% Growth That It Happened During Her Tenure As Editor , She Vociferously CHEERED 105
Vijayawada With A
Growth, To GO, GO, GO, Not Knowing THE UNHOLY
TRUTH That She Was LEGITIMISING The ILLEGITIMATE ), WHERE What Is To Be Particularly Noted In THIS WHOLE STAGE MANAGED “DRAMA” Is That , These 6 Markets Are ALL MAJOR ADVERTISEMENT REVENUE GENERATING MARKETS, With HUGE ADVERTISEMENT REVENUE GENERATING POTENTIAL IN YEARS TO COME. In The Continuing SUSPECT SEQUENCE Of CHAIN OF EVENTS, NOTABLY, On 9th June 2016 The Government Of India Comes Out With Their New DAVP Ad Policy For Print Media With The I& B Ministry Announcing That Henceforth DAVP Advertisement Volumes Will Be Decided Based On A Marking And Ranking System Based On REPUTATION And ABC CERTIFIED Circulation Figures. Against This Background Context One Needs To Look At The Suspect Sequence Of Events OF The Hindu Pompously Announcing To The World And Advertisers In Issue Dated 31st May 2016 About A RECORD 20% Growth in ABC 2015-II HALF, Followed Closely By The Following AGENDA DRIVEN Facebook Post On 5th June 2016 .
The Pattern And The Big Picture . FACT And INTENT Are Clear. That The Hindu Had Advance Inside Intelligence Information Of The Coming New DAVP Ad Policy announcement By I & B Ministry On 9th June 2016 , Where The News Story Of 31st May 2015 announcing 20% Growth Of The Hindu in ABC 2015- IInd HALF, Followed By The Hindu’s MEANINGFUL Facebook Post On 5th June 2016 Was CHOREOGRAPHED To Perfection To A LARGER HIDDEN AGENDA.
A Record 66% Growth In Just 6 Months In Vijayawada - Hard To Believe As An Insightful HINDU INSIDER And Circulation Veteran Of 25+ Years ,Who Was Regional Head Of A Major Printing Unit And Region Of The Hindu For Almost A Decade,
The Eye, WHERE, With A NEW EDITION It Took Me, Full 6 Years, To Double The Circulation Of The Hindu In Kochi Region And Printing Unit Through Sustained Subscription Promotion Work Towards SUSTAINABLE GROWTH, The Straight Way, What Today A Vijayawada Is PROJECTED As Doing It In 6 MONTHS FLAT, In What Can Only Be Described As The T20 QUICK FIX Way – The RADHI And RACKETEERING Route. ABC Needs To Dig Deeper And Investigate On HOW, Through WHAT Means And
6 Months Was Achieved in Vijayawada During 2015 ABC-II HALF, To Get Some INSIGHT Into The Whole Plot For It To Move Into CLEAN UP And COURSE CORRECTION Mode , Besides Understanding WHERE Exactly ABC As A Regulatory Body Is Failing , Being Taken On A Ride. ABC Also Needs To Do A FORENSIC INVESTIGATION Into The Entire ABC Statutory Documentation 107
Submitted By The Hindu For Certification Of This 66% Growth In Vijayawada To Understand WHERE Exactly ABC AUDIT Is Being UNDERMINED And Made To Look REDUNDANT , Besides UNDERSTANDING What This 12 Year ABC FRAUD Racket In The Hindu Is All About. This Could Be An Excellent CASE STUDY As A Starting Point Towards GAME CHANGING STRUCTURAL And SYSTEMIC CHANGES In ABC AUDIT
This Is Truly A WAKE UP CALL For ABC As A REGULATORY BODY. This Is THE MOMENT OF TRUTH For ABC. ITS NOW OR NEVER. It’s a MOCKERY Of A FARCE And A FRAUD CLAIMING Such A Kind Of Hard To Believe Insane Percentages Of Growth In 6 Months, All Done HOODWINKING ABC And Its
AUDIT, Considering The 12 Year History Of
FAKING And FORGERY In The Hindu, Since 2004. It Looks Like The Hindu Group Is Out To “PRESENT ITSELF” As THE NO.1 NEWSPAPER GROUP In South India , Targeting Major Revenue Generating Markets With FAKE And FRAUDULENT PRACTICES , Including Stage Managing FAKE ENCOUNTER KILLINGS Of Anyone Who Tries To Stop Them On This MERCENERIC MISSION , WHILE “INCENTIVISING ABC FRAUD” In Circulation Department Of The Hindu. In A Notable Related Development This Year , This Very Month In July2016 , Large Scale PROMOTIONS And LIBERAL “JACKPOT” ANNUAL INCREMENTS And OTP INCENTIVES Were DOLED OUT To Practically One And Everyone In And Across CRIMINAL CIRCULATION DEPARTMENT Of The Hindu , Including Known , Notorious , Well Proven WRONGDOERS , Where All This Indicates “PAID FRAUD” In The Hindu ( In Another Dimension Of PAID NEWS) ALL SUGGESTING That , “SOMETHING IS COOKING” Towards “A LARGER HIDDEN AGENDA”, Where Only Time Will Tell What It 108
Is , As THE JUGGERNAUT Of LICENSED ABC FRAUD Rolls On , UNCHECKED And UNOBSRUCTED , In A FARCE , Where CRIME Seems To Have Become A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT In The Hindu , Where They Consider Themselves ABOVE ACCOUNTABILITY And ABOVE THE LAW OF THE LAND . A LAW UNTO THEMSELVES , EXTRA JUDICIAL AUTHORITY With Right To Orchestrate EXTRA JUDICIAL KILLINGS . To Think That I Lost My Job Of 25+ Years At A Very Difficult Age Of 45 Years, As The Capital Price For Taking THE STRAIGHT PATH and Being Steadfast To Human And The Hindus Legacy Values where I was SUMMARILY ELIMINATED – Execution Style , Mafia Style On 21st August 2005. Honestly Anyone Else In My Place, Considering What Circulation And My Job In The Hindu Meant To Me with A Lifetime Of Doctoral kind Of Research Of Minute Detail And Diligence, Where It Was not A Profession But A Passion, Would Have Either Committed, Suicide Or Simply Murder. I Did Neither, Instead Decided To FIGHT BACK, In A LASHBACK And BACKLASH One Of Its Kind, With SINGLE MINDEDNESS Where I Trained Myself, Physically, Mentally, Emotionally
Spiritually, To Run, This, “THE MARATHON OF MY LIFE”. To Get To The Bottom Of THE TRUTH , THE SCAM RACKET And THE MULTI DIMENSIONAL CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY Towards EXPOSING The WRONGDOINGS And The WRONGDOERS In THE HINDU, With What I Call “THE SIMON WEISENTHAL SPIRIT”.
THE SIMON WEISENTHAL OF THE HINDU This Is An Extra Ordinary Story Of SINGLE MINDEDNESS Of An Ordinary Human Being, Who Worked With An Extra Ordinary Spirit, Grit and Determination, With The Single Mindedness Of “A Simon Weisenthal” The Holocaust Survivor Who Was Known For His Work as A Nazi Hunter, Where He Dedicated His Life To
Tracking Down, Gathering Information And “Hunting Down” Fugitive War Criminals To Build Cases Solid Enough To Stand In A Court of Law. Simon Weisenthal Was Known As A Person “Who Culls Every Pertinent Document And Record He Can Get, With an Architects structural Acumen, A Talmudists Thoroughness And A Brilliant Talent For Investigative Thinking, He Pieces Together The Most Obscure, Incomplete And Apparently Irrelevant and Unconnected Data To Build Cases Solid Enough To Stand up In A Court of Law”. The Dossiers were Then Presented to “The Appropriate Authorities”, Where, When They Failed To Take Action, Simon Weisenthal Went to The Press and Other Media, For Experience Had Taught Him, That PUBLICITY And AN OUTRAGED PUBLIC OPINION Are POWERFUL WEAPONS. Known As A Prolific Writer, Simon Weisenthal had a facility to put Into Words, The Difficult Truths Of The Holocaust, Where He Penned His Book Of Memoirs Titled “THE MURDERERS AMONG US”. Mine was a Similar “Single Minded” Herculean Effort In A Himalayan Mission as Simon Weisenthal, Where I Was Determined To Move Mountains, On An Everest Mission To Hunt Down “ THE MARAUDERERS AND MURDERERS AMONG US ” THIS MISSION DEMANDED ,SINGLEMINDEDNESS AND SACRIFICE, Where Its Not About INDIVIDUALS , But About INSTITUTION And INDUSTRY. This is A Rare INSIDER First Hand Account Of “AN INSIDER” Witness And Victim, Who Lived And Breathed The Hindu For A Lifetime 25+ Years, Who Was An Astute OBSERVER, Quietly OBSERVING, For 25+ Years, Not Just What was Happening Outside The Hindu, But Also What was Happening Within The Hindu, Which
The Shadowy, The Seamy, The Sleazy And The Scamy.
This Relentless Crusade Of A FIGHT FOR JUSTICE, Running Over An Epic 12 Year Period was An Extraordinary Single Minded Pursuit Of Truth And Justice, Where I was DETERMINED To Bring To Book And Accountability, To Face JUSTICE, Those Responsible For The Gross Injustice And The Inhuman HUMAN RIGHTS Abuse
The Hindu, Where I Worked assiduously
With Passion, Vision, and Foresight
Anticipating The Unexpected, DETERMINED “To Hunt Down” The Criminals And Their Collaborators, Whosoever Was Involved In This Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy, Directly Or Indirectly, Till They Are Exposed And Brought To Book , To Face ACCOUNTABILITY And JUSTICE. This Was An Extraordinary Journey Involving Huge Sacrifices, Where In This SINGLE MINDED Mission, I Had To Blank And Put Aside My Family, My Friends, My Health, My Happiness ,My Career, Where All That Mattered Was JUSTICE. I Was Not A VIGILANTE, But Who Kept A Close And Continuous VIGIL On WOEFUL WRONGDOINGS And WRONGDOERS In The Hindu . I A HORRIBLE VICTIM Of UNSPEAKABLE SUFFERING Wouldn’t Want Anyone To Go Through What Inhuman ABUSES I Suffered During The Last 12 Years, In The Underworld Underbelly Of “The ISIS Hindu”. I
FUNDAMENTALISTS Of The Hindu Of The 21st Century For Daring To Question The Questionable, What Does Not Make Sense To Me, What To Me Is Fundamentally Wrong, Where I Met The Same Fate As Rationalist Narendra Achyut Dabholkar Who Was SHOT DOWN POINT BLANK In Pune In 2013.
HUBRIS WAITING TO HAPPEN This Is A SNOWBALLING CASE Which Calls For Some Serious Introspection And Forensic Investigation By ABC As A Regulatory Body As FUNDAMENTALLY Had Their Systems And Circulation Audit Procedures Been Foolproof To Deal With FRAUD AND FRAUDSTERS Of The Hindu , Such A Calamitous Tragedy Wouldn’t Have Taken Place In The Life Of a Honest Hard Working Human Being. LIKE IT OR NOT, ACCEPT IT OR NOT, ABC As A Regulatory Body Is MORALLY RESPONSIBLE
For This Whole Tragedy, Which, Better Late Than
Never, Calls For CLEAN UP, COURSE CORRECTION And BRINGING CLOSURE To This SHOCKING 12 Year Case Of GROSS MISUSE AND ABUSE OF POWER AND TRUST, Ensuring JUSTICE IS NOT JUST DONE, BUT SEEN TO BE DONE. ABC AT THE CROSSROADS – A WAKE UP CALL To Move Into DAMAGE CONTROL There Is Clearly A RAT RACE For CERTIFICATION Of CLAIMED CIRCULATION Towards REVENUES And RANKING, To Hoodwink READERS, READERSHIP, REVENUE Generating Advertisers And REGULATORY Authorities. This Is To Be Today Particularly Viewed In The Context Of The I & B Ministry’s New Print Media Policy Where “Marking System” Has Been Introduced to Incentivise Newspapers which Have Better Professional Standing And Get Their Certification Verified By Audit Bureau Of Circulations (ABC) Or Registrar Of Newspapers For India (RNI). Which is To say That , What Matters
In This RAT RACE For
REVENUES Is What Circulation You PRESENT, And How You Are PERCEIVED, And Not What You PRACTICE , Where A ROGUE CORPORATION Like THE HINDU CAN PRESENT ITSELF As Having Better REPUTATION AND RANKING When It Has Been Involved In The REPREHENSIBLE For The Last 12 Years Since 2004. As The Saying Goes “You Can’t Judge A Book By Its Cover”. Calls For Deep Introspection By Industry And I & B Ministry.
ABC AT THE CROSSROADS “Bite Off More Than You Can Chew?” ABC Is Today At The Crossroads Of History, In Every Sense Of The Term And Terminology, Where, When It Has Certain “Major Serious Pressing Issues” To Be Addressed In Print Media Audit, It Is Now Foraying Into Audit Measurement Of Digital Media Properties from The Third Quarter Of 2016. It Is Critically Important That ABC Needs To Set Its House In Order In Its Primary Job Of Print Media Audit , Before Venturing Into Audit Measurement Of Digital Media Properties , Otherwise It Could Spell Serious Trouble . At The Crisis Crossroads Moment Of ABC As The Key Lynchpin , THE GROUND ZERO , To This Whole UNFORTUNATE HAPPENINGS In The Hindu, It is For All Members Of ABC To Individually, And Collectively, Do Some SOUL SEARCHING, On Something Serious Which Raises Huge Fundamental Questions On Institutional And Industry CREDIBILITY And REPUTATION , Where The Industry Could End Up Being Painted Or Tarred With The Same Brush For An Individual Institutions WRONGDOING . This is The Time For ABC As A REGULATORY BODY To STEP IN And ENFORCE Its Statutory Authority , Ensuring ZERO TOLERANCE To WRONGDOING Of Any Order In The Industry , With A Loud Message That Anyone Found Breaching The ABC Guidelines , Which Has To Be Adhered To In Letter And Spirit , Will Be PENALISED And PUNISHED . A TOUGH MESSAGE Is THE NEED OF THE HOUR As A DETERRENT. This Is A Huge Football Of A Scam Which Is Today AN OPEN SECRET Within The Hindu , In And Across Circulation Department Of The Hindu , And INTERNALLY Is A Subject Of Hot Debate , Discussion And Ridicule Among Circulation Staff Of The Hindu In And Across The Country . My Insightful Circulation Colleagues Who Are In The Know Of The INSIDIOUS INSIDE Facts And Fraudulent Practices Within Circulation Department Of The Hindu Are Simply Amazed How This 113
Has Been Escaping ABC Scrutiny And Its Audit Process For 12 Years. BOTTOM LINE
Is , The REPUTATION And CREDIBILITY Of ABC As A
Regulatory Body Is In Serious Question Even Within The Hindu , Where Today Cheating And Committing Fraud Has Become A Way Of Life In Circulation Department Of The Hindu. FUNDAMENTALLY , Essentially There Are Two Dimensions To The Whole 12 Year ABC CIRCULATION FRAUD RACKET In The Hindu : 1) Tunneling And Funneling Of Copies Required To Be Used For READER And READERSHIP Purpose To The RADHI WASTEPAPER Market (A Sacrilege And Scam Of Sorts) In An Act Of “PERVERT” DECEPTION, CHEATING Reader, Readership And statutory Regulatory Authorities Through FRAUDULENT Means And Methods Of Machiavellian And Machination. 2) In The Second Dimension Is , RACKETEERING , Amounting To WILFUL FRAUD, FAKING And FORGING Statutory ABC Documents By MASS COUNTERFEITING Fake Signatures With “MANUFACTURED” LIES, SIGNATURES And RUBBER STAMPS.
If This Is Not FRAUD , Then What Is ?
If A Common Man Does This FRAUD Will He Not Face CRIMINAL PROSECUTION And Be Put BEHIND BARS- Sent To JAIL ? Going By The Same Yardstick
Shouldn’t The WRONGDOINGS And
WRONGDOERS In The Hindu Be CRIMINALLY PROSECUTED And PUNISHED To Be Put Behind Bars ?
If I May Ask, In What Way Is THE FRAUD In The Hindu Different From THE SATYAM FRAUD, Where A ROLE MODEL Turned Out To Be A ROGUE MODEL, LYING And CHEATING In The Sly? Going Further , In What Way Is The Wrongdoing Of N Murali Different From The Wrongdoing Of B Ramalinga Raju ? Its Needs To Be Mentioned That In The Satyam Fraud,
AUDITORS” Of PWC Too Came In For Scrutiny And Severe Strictures From The Courts And Ended Up Facing “Life Time Bans” On Charges Of “ENABLING” The Satyam Fraud Masterminded By B Ramalinga Raju. Today ABC AUDIT Could Face The Same SCRUTINY QUESTIONS On “The 12 Year Satyam Fraud In THE HINDU”
ACCOUNTABILITY The Basic And Biggest, Foremost And Fundamental Question To Me As A First Hand Witness And Victim Of “The Hindu CirculationGate” Is, How In The World Did The Hindu Circulation Scam Racket – “A Football Of A Scam” Which Cannot Escape Attention Of Even The Blind - Escape Audit Scrutiny Of ABC Auditors For 12 Years, For 24 Audit Periods. Its Mindboggling And Bizarre. All I Can Say Is, There Is Something Seriously Wrong, Somewhere, Something More Than It Meets The Eye. It Raises Similar Kind Of Scrutiny Questions As The Audit And Auditors In THE SATYAM FRAUD Of 2008 Faced, Once The Scam Got Exposed In Public Domain, On How Did “THE SATYAM FRAUD OF THE HINDU” (Where N.Murali’s Practices Were As Dubious as B.Ramalinga Raju ‘s) Escape Audit Scrutiny For 12 Years ????
In A Telling Development , THIS OBNOXIOUS 12 YEAR FRAUD, Saw Practically The Entire Core Circulation Department Of The Hindu WALK OUT Of
“A VRS Offer” Was Made By The Company Last Year on 16 th March 2015, Where It Saw CIRCULATION STAFF Of The Hindu Leaving The Company “In Droves” To Get Out Of THE HELL HOLE , Where Fact Is That No SELF RESPECTING Person Today Wants To Work In Criminal Circulation Department Of The Hindu , To Be Involved In The Immoral And The Illegal. A REFERENDUM Or A TRUTH COMMISSION PROBE Will Revealingly Reveal What Honest Circulation Foot Soldiers Feels About The 12 Year Fraudulent System In Circulation Department Of The Hindu Where Honest People
INTIMIDATION, Which People Dread To Speak About In The Hindu, Fearing THE DREADED CIRCULATION MAFIA Of The Hindu. After THE PURGE
Last Year In Circulation Department Of
The Hindu Following The VRS OFFER, Today Only “Pliant Dishonest People” Remain In Criminal Circulation Department Of The Hindu, Where Their Single Minded Objective And Brief Today, Rather Than Honest Hard Work, Is To Work On Ways And Means To HOODWINK ABC AUDIT And AUDITORS as The JUGGERNAUT Of ABC FRAUD Rolls On – Unchecked And Unobstructed. In The Context Of The 12 Year Hindu Circulation
Scam, As Is Natural,
Naturally It Raises Suspicion On the TRUE INDEPENDENCE and INTEGRITY Of ABC as A Regulatory Body, As To Whether IN PRACTICE & PRACTICES The ABC Audit Is Done, Without Fear or Favour, Without Affection Or Ill Will, Without Bias Or Exception, With Principles , Without Being Influenced By Personalities Like Roguester N.Murali, In THE TRUE SPIRIT Of Upholding The Constitution And The Law, As, To Me, It Amazes Me How In The World The Hindu Circulation Scam 116
Racket Escaped ABC Audit Scrutiny, For 12 Years, Where It Gives a Feeling That Either
A Nelson’s Eye, With A Superficial Audit, Rather Than A Stringent Audit, Ignoring What Is “Under The Surface”, Not Caring Or Wanting To DIG DEEPER. I, Murali Krishnan, As A
Witness And Victimised Whistleblower Of
The Hindu ABC FRAUDGATE, Am Extremely Upset About This Whole Farce And Fraud, As, I, A Honest Hard Working Human Being With Aspirational Dreams, Lost 15 Years Of My Life And Career, And My REPUTATION Of A Lifetime 25+ Years Of BACK BREAKING Hard Labour Work , Working 15 To 16 Hours A Day on An Average, Every Day, Ignoring Sundays And Holidays, For 25+Years Searching And Researching CIRCULATION And CUSTOMER READER, SIMPLY Because There were NO CHECKS AND BALANCES, Either INTERNALLY Or EXTERNALLY, To CHECK FRAUD, To Stem And Stop THE SYSTEMIC ROT, And The Hydra Headed, FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER Of RADHI And RACKETEERING
Criminal Circulation Department Of The Hindu. HONESTLY, I Literally Felt Left High And Dry, Where I Had To Fight A Long Lone Dogged Battle In The Hindu Board Room For 12 Years, Fighting The Battle Of My Life. It Was One Man Up Against A System, In A David against Goliath 12 Year Epic Battle For JUSTICE , Where The WRONGDOERS Of The Hindu Perceived Me As A Thorn In Their Flesh For Which They Simply Eliminated Me – Execution Style , By Orchestrating A Stage Managed Fake Encounter . To Me This Is UNACCEPTABLE. I Have So Far Spent Over A Traumatic Eight Lakhs Of My Lifetime Hard Earned Earnings On This Relentless Crusade Of A Battle For REDEMPTION JUSTICE and My Right To RIGHTFUL FINAL SETTLEMENT (Duly Taking Into Account THE CONTEXTUAL FACTS Of The Case ).
This Is Something To Do Some Soul Searching Over And Do Some Deep Introspection For ABC On , On Why Should A Person Go To Such Levels , Sacrificing 12 Years Of His Life , His Career , Eight Lakhs Of His Hard Earned Retirement Savings , Staking His Everything On This BATTLE FOR JUSTICE Unless He Is GENUINELY AGGRIEVED And Has A Strong Case . TIME FOR ABC INTERVENTION AND INVESTIGATION BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, BEFORE IT BECOMES TOO LATE, It Is Time For ABC As The Regulatory Body To STEP IN, INTERVENE And INDEPENDENTLY INVESTIGATE Into The Whole FARCE And FRAUD In The Hindu Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy, Since 2004, By Installing An Independent “TRUTH COMMISSION” Probe Into The Entire WRONGS And WRONGDOINGS Chain Of Events That Transpired And Conspired In The Hindu Circulation Department Since 2004. To Ensure That This Investigation Is Not Compromised Or Influenced in Any Manner THE BIG FIVE Of The Hindu’s 12 Year Satyam Fraud (Of Which One
Mr.R.Varadamani, Mr.K.S.Raghavan And Mr.N.Krishnan, Not Forgetting Rajiv C Lochan, So That A Just And Fair Investigation Probe Can Be Made, Without Fear Or Favour, Without Affection Or Ill Will, Without Bias Or Exception, Without Being Intimidated Or Influenced, UPHOLDING The Constitution And The Law, And The Human Rights Of A Victim Of Inhuman Abuse.
Towards CLEAN UP , COURSE CORRECTION And CLOSURE The Foremost And Fundamental Forensic And Prosecution Question To Ask Is, Why At All Should The Hindu FAKE And FORGE Circulation Audit Statutory Documents, Books Of Accounts.
Obviously Because They Are Involved In Some SERIOUS WRONGDOING, Where They Are Involved In Something Unlawful And Unethical In Contravention To The Civil Values They Are Known To Hypocritically Preach From The Moral High Ground, Where It Is Paradoxical That When The Hindu Presents Itself As “The Self Appointed Moral Policeman” Against PAID NEWS , It Is Involved In What I Would Call “Self PAID NEWS Paper”, Where By Sleight Of Hand And Skullduggery, They Are DESPERATE To PUSH THROUGH “Pre Targeted Circulation Numbers” With DESPERADO SOLUTIONS, By Hook Or By Crook, Where They Brazenly Believe That Everything Is Fair In Marketing War, As Long As You PRESENT YOURSELF To Be POLITICALLY CORRECT, ALL To TURBO BOOST Reader, Readership And Revenue Numbers, The Fake And The Fraudulent Way – The Satyam Fraud Way Where Fundamentally, Bottom Line Truth Is That You Don’t Have The Circulation That You Claim For Certification. This Is What I Have Bluntly Termed As “CIRCULATION LAUNDERING” Where You Use ABC As A Tool Means, To LICENSE And LEGITIMISE Your ILLEGALITIES, To Turn What I Would Call BLACK Into WHITE. Besides Carrying Out A Thorough FORENSIC INVESTIGATION “TRUTH COMMISSION” PROBE, Into The Whole Happenings In the Hindu Since 2004, Where Basically If The Signatures Of All ABC Documents Submitted By The Hindu Are Cross Checked With Mother Documents And News Agents Themselves And All Other Parties Concerned, IN STRICT CONFIDENCE, It Would Be GAME OVER And ENDGAME Where “Chickens Come Home To Roost”, Opening A Can Of Worms Where The Ugly Skeletons of 12 Years Will Come Tumbling Out Of The Hindu’s Closet, Enough To Stir A Hornets Nest, Enough To Send A Few To Jail.
I Am Sure Circulation Colleagues Who Retired Or Resigned From The Hindu Post 2003, Will Have Lot To Depose On THE HIDDEN TRUTH . The Foremost And Fundamental Prosecution Question
The Hindu Board By Itself, Will Have To Answer Is, Why In The World Did They Fail To Call For An Independent “Third Party” Investigation Into The Explosive Expose Revelations Of An Internal Whistleblower, For Full 10 Years, Despite As Many as A Mind Boggling 36 Whistleblower Petitions Sent To All Hindu Board Members (Under Acknowledgement), Unless They Have Something To Hide, Unless They Have Something To Fear, Unless They Have Something To COVER UP, Unless They Know About The Wrongdoings, And Are All, Criminals And Regulator Collaborators, Collusively Complicit In The Criminal Conspiracy. Taking The Prosecution Case Further, Why Did N.Murali, And The Hindu Board By Itself,
UNLAWFULLY WITHHOLD A Whistleblower
Employee’s Right To Final Settlement Which Legitimately Should Have Been Settled In October 2006, After He Was Lawfully Relieved By The Company on 18th September 2006, After He Turned Whistleblower On 18th September 2006, Giving A Clear Indication That N.Murali, And The Hindu Board By Itself, Wanted To Arm Twist And Blackmail A Whistleblower Employee, To Gag Him From Speaking THE TRUTH – The Unholy Truth , On Something ILLEGAL And IMMORAL They Wanted To Hide From The Outside World. Shockingly And Scandalously I Am Yet To Receive My Final Settlement Even Today, Even After 10 Years Of Being Relieved By The Company On 18th September 2006 . And Most Important, Why Was A Veteran Employee Of The Hindu, With A Outstanding And Spotless 25 Year Career Record TARGETTED, And WRONGFULLY DISMISSED From The Regional Managers Position On 21 st August 2005, Without A Case, Without A Crime, Without A Charge Sheet, 120
Without Being Heard, Without A Credible Trail Process, Without The Right To Appeal Against The Unfair And Unjust Capital Punishment Judgment, Making The Hindu JUSTICE SYSTEM Appear Like A Taliban Or ISIS Justice System ? Why Did The Supreme Court Of The Hindu REFUSE To Hear 36 Appeal Petitions Made By The Aggrieved Appellant Petitioner In Their Court, Literally “Sitting Over The Case” For An Untenable 10 Years? The Hindu ABC FRAUD Case Is Truly A Game Changing Case For ABC As A Statutory Regulatory Body Whom I Today Look At As “An Appellate Court”, With The Hope And Expectation That This Scandalous “Pandora’s Box Of A Case” Worthy Of Going Into The Hall Of Shame, Is Addressed And Adjudicated “Within The Industry” As The REPUTATION And CREDIBILITY Of
INDIVIDUALS, INSTITUTION And INDUSTRY Are At Peril Stake
Involving THE FAITH And TRUST Of Civil Society On MEDIA, Where Sadly One Rogue Institution Has Turned MEDIA INTO A MAFIA. Now That The Hindu ABC FRAUD Scam Racket, Is Out In The Open Forum, Which I Have Placed Before One And Every ABC MEMBER, Council Of Management, Publisher, Advertiser, Advertising Agency, Empanelled Auditors And Allied Governmental Agencies Located Across The Country, Where The Hindu Scam Racket Criminal Conspiracy Is Out In The Open Within The Industry, This Is THE MOMENT OF TEST Of CHARACTER And CREDIBILITY Of ABC As A Regulatory Body, Particularly When There Is A Suspicion On The INDEPENDENCE And INTEGRITY Of ABC As A Regulatory Body, To Prove That ABC Is Not “A Cosy Club”, Where If You Fail TO ACT With PROPRIETY And PROBITY And PROFESSIONALISM in This ACID TEST CASE ,Then The REPUTATION And CREDIBILITY Of ABC As A Regulatory Body Will Be UNDERMINED And Made REDUNDANT.
I Urge ABC As A Governing Body To Look Into THE MIRROR I Have Placed Before You , Something Which No One Has Perhaps Shown You In ABC’s 68 Year History , Where You Need To Take A Hard Look In THE MIRROR , REFLECT ON And DECIDE Whether Or Not You are The Best Example Of What You Would Like To reflect for those who call you A REGULATOR . This Is A WAKE UP CALL For The ABC As A Regulatory Body, For CLEAN UP, COURSE CORRECTION, BESIDES Bringing CLOSURE To This 12 Year Case Of Gross Misuse Of Privileged Powers Involving Inhuman Human Rights Violation Abuse , Perpetrated
Towards The Hindu Circulation ABC
FRAUD Ends. Its Now Or Never For ABC To Restore FAITH On Its Regulatory Role And Audit Process, Otherwise It Will Be Sending The Wrong Signals To Institutions And Industry Members, That It Is Okay TO CHEAT And COMMIT FRAUD, As Long As You Are Not Caught. It Is Time For CLEAN UP And COURSE CORRECTION To RESTORE FAITH Of Reader , Readership And Revenue Generating Advertisers Where There Is Urgent Need To RESTORE FAITH In ABC As A Regulatory Body . For INDUSTRY’S CREDIBILITY And REPUTATION Sake , There Is Need To BRING CLOSURE To This SNOWBALLING CASE . It Is Time For ABC To STEP IN, INTERVENE And INVESTIGATE Into The 12 Year ABC Scam Racket In The Hindu, ACT Firmly And Fairly, Without Fear or Favour, Without Affection Or Ill Will, Without Bias Or Exception, Without Being Influenced Or Intimidated By Personalities Like N.Murali The Ex-Insider Of The ABC Council Of Management, Without Sparing Anyone Whosoever Guilty, In The TRUE SPIRIT Of A Regulatory Body, Upholding TRUTH , JUSTICE, FAIRPLAY And RULE OF LAW.
Like It Or Not, Accept It Or Not, Mr.N.Murali And The Hindu, Have Brought DISREPUTE To CIRCULATION And ABC AUDIT With Their BRAZEN Fraudulent Deeds For 12 Years, For Which They Must Be Brought To ACCOUNTABILITY As A Loud Message And Deterrent To Others That Is Not Wise To Cheat, To Commit Fraud. Suzuki Did It, Volkswagen Did It, Toshiba Did It, Olympus Did It Where In All These Cases The CEO / Chairman Had To Step Down, And Now The Hindu Has Done “A Satyam” For Which The CEO, The Chairman / Co Chairman Must Be Brought To ACCOUNTABILITY And MORAL RESPONSIBILITY. Isn’t It The Worst Form Of HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE For An Individual And
Employees Of The Hindu Into The Illegal And The Immoral ? What
RESPONSIBILITY? Does A Conscientious Employee Refusing To Be Involved In The Illegal And The Immoral Amount To Indiscipline And Insubordination To Be Worthy Of Being Summarily Sacked ? Is It A Rarest Of Rare Crime To Be Honest & Upright? The Hindu’s Gross Unethical And Unlawful Practices, Call For It To Be Blacklisted and Suspended For A Certain Period, As A Loud Lesson To All Likely Future Wrongdoers, That You Should Not Breach The Lakshman Rekha’s, Let Alone Break The Law, Learning To Respect These Sacred Dividing Lines In Letter And Spirit.
THE MOMENT OF TRUTH FOR ABC AS A REGULATORY BODY. The Situation Demands For ABC To Immediately Convene An Extraordinary General Body Meeting To Address This Serious Industry Impacting Issue Of The Hindu ABC Fraud Racket,
At The Critical
CROSSROADS MOMENT OF ABC.
WHAT THE SITUATION DEMANDS FROM ABC Institute A TRUTH COMMISSION To Make A Thorough Probe Into The Whole Fraud And Whatever Wrongs And Wrongdoings That Transpired In The Hindu Circulation ABC Fraud Gate Since 2004 . The Whole Scam Needs To Be Thoroughly Investigated Into By Making A Forensic And Field Investigation By An Independent Investigating Team To Understand How High The Rot And The Racket Goes In The Hindu ABC FRAUD Scam Racket. To Get To The Bottom Of FACTS And THE FRAUD , In This INQUEST INVESTIGATION , All Clinical And Circumstantial Evidence Must Be Taken Into Account , Where Even Retired And Resigned Staff Of The Hindu’s Circulation Department Post January 2004 , IN TOTAL CONFIDENCE , May Be Asked
And Allowed TO DEPOSE To A SWORN TESTIMONY As
PROSECUTION WITNESS Before THE TRUTH COMMISSION PROBE , Specifically Questioning Them On The Compelling Circumstances Under Which They Left The Hindu And What Was The GROUND REALITIES In Circulation Department Of The Hindu Post January 2004 . To Get To The Bottom Of The Scam Racket , ABC Needs To Do A Thorough Forensic Investigation By CROSS CHECKING Signatures In Statutory 124
Documents Submitted By The Hindu For Certification – Namely Bill Statements And Payment Covering Notes etc etc – With News Agents, Stamped Agreements, Meeting All Major And Medium Level News Agents, Focusing Particularly On Chennai And Tamil Nadu And “The Top 6 Fastest Growing Markets Of The Hindu” Where They Claim Record Breaking Growth In Circulation In 2015-ABC IInd Half , To Understand , Where Exactly, In What Segment, And How They Generated 66% Growth In Vijayawada And Extra Ordinary High Double Digit Growth In 6 Listed Markets, To Have Some INSIGHTS On How The Hindu Has Generated The Record Breaking Growth, Through What Means, Making A Copy Wise Audit Probe On Supply Received In Major Distribution Points To Check On Where Exactly Copies Are Going , Whether It Is Going To The Reader Or The RADHI MEANS and METHODS, PROBING Deeper Into Related Issues Like Supply, Unsold Levels, Undistributed Copies, Settlement Of Bills, Circulation Outstanding, Adjustment Entries By Way Of Rebate On Unsold, Debit/Credit Entries In The Agents Statement Of Account , Under What Head , etc etc . All In All The 12 Year Hindu ABC Fraud Racket Needs To Be Extensively Investigated Into To Get To The Bottom Of THE TRUTH, THE SCAM, And THE MULTI DIMENSIONAL CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY Where It Calls For A Thorough Investigation Audit Probe ENCOMPASSING Among Several Things, 1) Make A Thorough and Complete Forensic Audit Of All The Statutory Documents – Namely Bill Statements, Payment Covering Notes Of At Least The Last 3 ABC Audits From 2015 Ist Half To 2016 Ist Half. 2) Make Surprise “Fact Finding” Inspection Visits To The Hindu Distribution Points , Particularly In All Major And Medium Towns And Cities In And Across Chennai And Tamil Nadu , And Crosscheck GROUND REALITIES And The Murky Facts. 125
3) Audit Check All Account Adjustments By Way Of Debit/Credit In ABC Months Of June And December, Cross Checking Fly By Night And Fraudulent Adjustments “Made In The Sly” At The Last Minute To Circumvent And Hoodwink ABC And Its Audit Norms. 4) Investigate, Where There Was A Steady Decrease In ABC Circulation Of The Hindu Over The Last Few Years , WHY , HOW And Under WHAT Circumstances Was There A SUDDEN SPIKE In Circulation Of The Hindu In 2015-ABC IInd Half, That Too Selectively And With A Skewed Pattern In Certain Printing Units, That Too In Major Advertisement Revenue Generating Potential Markets. Was THE SPIKE In Circulation Through READER And READERSHIP Or RADHI And RACKETEERING ? 5) The Role Of Mr.N.Murali Then Managing Director And Present Co Chairman In The Hindu ABC Fraud Criminal Conspiracy Is Suspect And Needs Scrutiny Investigation. Why And Under What Compelling Circumstances Did The CEO Turn Chief Conspirator Turned Blackmailer ? 6) What Is The Link Between Mr.N.Murali And The Scandalous Scam And Sex Racket In Circulation Department Of The Hindu ? 7) Why Did Mr.N.Murali In His Role As Managing Director And Co Chairman Of The Hindu Fail To Carry Out An Independent Investigation Into The Whistleblower Revelations Of An Internal Whistleblower For 10 Years ? Fact Was That Accused N Murali OBSTRUCTED An Independent Investigation Misusing His Managing Director And Co Chairman Position
So That THE ABC FRAUD RACKET Could Continue UNOBSTRUCTED And UNCHECKED In Perpetuity Forever . 8) Why Did N Murali Obstruct THE PROCESS For An Aggrieved Appellant Murali
INJUSTICE Was Done To Him in 2005? What Is His HIDDEN AGENDA? INCONVENIENT TRUTH Is Straight And Simple . It Was One Person, A Single Person , Who Stood In The Way Of This Whole Juggernaut Of A Machiavellian Plot . It Was One Person Who Blew THE WHISTLE And Blew N Murali’s Whole Web Of A Plot, For Which He Wanted That The Whistleblower Must Be BROUGHT DOWN At Whatever Cost , Through Whatever Means , Stooping To Whatever Levels , Whatever It Takes , To Bury The Truth And The Whistleblower . 9) Why And Under What Compelling
Board INSTITUTIONALLY “Utterly Fail To Act”
Did The Hindu For 10 Years, On
36 Whistleblower Petitions Sent To All Board Members, Beseeching Intervention And Independent “Third Party” Investigation ?
The Murky Stonewall Of Silence For 10 Years ?
Beyond This Why Did The Esteemed Independent Directors Ms Vinita Bali Of Britannia Fame And Mr S Mahalingam Of TCS Fame “PLAY ALONG” With The Hindu ABC Fraud
Despite As Many As 13 Whistleblower
Petitions Sent To Them Beseeching Intervention And Independent Investigation ?.
10) Why And Under What Compelling Circumstances ,Was A Honest Hard Working Employee With An Outstanding And Spotless Track Record SUDDENLY TARGETED In 2005, WRONGFULLY DISMISSED From The Regional Managers Position And Witch Hunted Out Of The Hindu After 25+ Years Of Recorded Outstanding Service And Results Delivered ? 11) Why And Under What Credible Circumstances Was An Employees Final Settlement Unlawfully Detained And Denied, After He Was Lawfully Relieved vide Relieving Letter Dated 18th September 2006, And Notably After He Turned Whistleblower To The Hindu ABC Fraud Scam Racket At The Hindu Board Level ? 12) Why In The World Has The Hindu As An Institution Still Failed To Make The Final Settlement Even After 10 Years Of An Employee Being Relieved? 13) Why, And At Whose Behest, Did The Hindu Board Bury The Hindu ABC Scam Racket, After The Whistleblower Expose Revelations, When They Should Have Got To The Bottom Of The Scam, The Truth And The Criminal Conspiracy ? 14) Why Has Not A Single Wrongdoer Named By The Whistleblower On The Hindu ABC Fraud Scam Racket Been Punished And Brought To Accountability ? Isn’t it A Shameful Mockery Of A Farce To Promote Known Wrongdoers In The Hindu ? Why Is N Murali, And The Hindu Board By Themselves, Shielding The Wrongdoers, Unless They Are Complicit In The Wrongdoing And Colluding With The Wrongdoers ?
15) While As A Whistleblower I Had Sent 36 Whistleblower Petitions To The Hindu Board Members IN WRITING , Why Has There Been No Response To The Petitions From The Company IN WRITING ? Doesn’t It amount To Admission Of Guilt And Fear Of A Complicit Wrongdoer, Where You Are Scared To Put Anything IN WRITING ? Doesn’t This By Itself Conclusively Prove Who Is Guilty And Who Is Innocent For Which You Don’t Need To Be A Sherlock Holmes ? 16) Targeting A Whistleblower, Doesn’t It Amount To Law Makers Trying To “Shoot The Messenger”? 17) An Employee Wise Enquiry Probe Of Salaries, Promotions, Increments, OTP Incentive Doled Out In Circulation Department Of The Hindu During The Last 12 Years Will Reveal LIBERAL And LARGE “PAY OFFS ” As Quid Pro Quo BRIBES Made Annually And Arbitrarily During The Last 12 Years, In A PAY OUT, So That They Do Not Cause Trouble And To Wean Them TO COOPERATE To THE SYSTEMIC ABC FRAUD Within Circulation Department Of The Hindu, And Also As A Price To Gag Them From Speaking Out About The Insidious ABC SCAM RACKET, Where The Stakes Are Too High To Take The Risk Of It Getting Exposed , Where The Hindu May Lose In Lakhs As BRIBES ,But Earn In Crores Through WRONGDOINGS. The Rotten Leadership In The Hindu Are Up To Their DIRTY TRICKS , Where They Don’t Have Any Ethics , Values Or Decency.
This Is PAID FRAUD That We Have In Circulation Department Of The Hindu Where ABC FRAUDSTERS Are Liberally Rewarded With
Promotions, Increments, OTP Incentives To Commit ABC FRAUD With Bigger Intensity Towards Greater Heights In LYING, CHEATING And COMMITTING ABC FRAUD. Isn’t It A Mockery Of A FARCE , Of FRAUD Getting INCENTIVISED In The Hindu. ? 18) KILLING CIRCULATION OUTSTANDINGS Being SURREPTITIOUSLY, In The Sly, Being Adjusted Using Machiavellian And Machination Means And Methods On 30th June And 31st December On The Last Day Of Every Audit Period, Without The Knowledge Or Consent Letter Of The News Agents, All Just To HOODWINK ABC Circulation Outstanding Guidelines, To Avoid ABC Deduction Of Copies For Failing To Adhere To ABC Collection Norms, Is a Big Scam In Itself. 19) Rebate On Unsolds Selectively Given Under Several Unknown Heads After They Are Billed To Be Included In The Copies To Be Included For Claiming CERTIFICATION, Is A Racket In Itself .
20) There Is Absolute Need To Include All Major Ex News Agents Who Quit The Hindu News Agency Business Post 2003 ( Particularly Those News Agents Who Showed Large Circulation Outstanding In Their Ex Agency Account At The End Of The Audit Period ) In This FACT FINDING PROBE Which Will Be A HUGE EYE OPENER On What Is Transpiring And Conspiring In The Hindu ABC FRAUD Since 2004
Compelling Circumstances Forced Them To Leave An Agency They Most Cherished ? This Is Extremely Critical And Most Important Part For The
Investigation Probe , As This Single Prosecution Point Could Prove GAME OVER And ENDGAME To Expose The Full Contours And Layers Of The Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Behind The Hindu ABC FRAUD Since
WRONGDOERS . In This Sense This Is An INQUEST INVESTIGATION , Digging Out BURIED SKELETONS Of The Past Which Could Be A MINEFIELD Of Information Enough To Bury The WRONGDOERS Of The Hindu.
21) ABC Investigating Team Needs To Check Whether News Agents Letters Are There For All Increases Made To News Agents As Mandated By ABC Standing Guidelines , Considering The Whole Lot Of Arbitrary And Ad Hoc Increases Made By The Company Without The Request Or Consent Of The News Agent Towards RADHI And RACKETEERING.
22) Also To Be Investigated Into Is A Distinct Pattern On The Hindu’s Monthly ABC Circulation Average In All Editions SPIKING On The LAST MONTH Of Every ABC Audit Period , Namely Months Of June And December . This Could Be Insightfull Eye Opener On The INTENT And Extreme Practices And ARTIFICIAL STEROID Means And Methods Used To ENHANCE PERFORMANCE. Today There Seems To Be A HIDDEN AGENDA Behind The All Out Ongoing Drive To Boost Circulation Of The Hindu Tamil Edition , Through Whatever Means , Going To Whatever Levels , Whatever It Takes , Including Offering 50% Discount On Subscription Offers ? 131
23) The ABC Investigation Team Must Make Particular Note TO CROSS CHECK With News Agents If There Was Any Attempt By The Wrongdoers In The Hindu To APPROACH THEM , POST 11th July 2016 When I Turned Whistleblower At ABC , To INFLUENCE THEM “ TO COOPERATE” In COVER UP Of THE HINDU ABC FRAUDGATE , Making Particular Note To Check If Any Attempt Was Made To TUTOR or THREATEN Them What To Say , Or Any Attempt Was Made To Get Their Signatures On ABC Documents Post 15th July 2016 .
24) It Is Important That The Hindu , Given Its Infamous Past , Needs To Be Under The Scanner , Under Close And Continuous ABC Scrutiny , Under The Magnifying Glass From Now On , To Ensure They Don’t Take Things And ABC For Granted From Now On .
As ROGUES Who Have Mastered The Art Of DECEIT And DECEPTION, LYING And CHEATING , Through Sleight Of Hand And Skullduggery, Who Know The Art Of HOODWINKING The ABC AUDIT Process And AUDITORS, Who Have Studied The Mind And Methods Of How The System Works In ABC,
Who Have Studied Every LEEWAY,
LOOPHOLES And LEGALITIES Of ABC AUDITING, They Know How To Get Away With LYING, CHEATING And COMMITTING ABC FRAUD, Where In A Mockery Of A FARCE And FRAUD, They PRETEND And PRESENT Themselves To Be POLITICALLY CORRECT, When PRINCIPALLY, They Are CRIMINALLY And MORALLY WRONG .
Truly THE HINDU Has Turned THE MEDIA Into A MAFIA . I Urge ABC Working Towards Ensuring This SCAMDALOUS CASE Is Redressed And Resolved INTERNALLY Within The Industry, Something Which Should Have Been Addressed And Redressed “Within The Institution The Hindu 10 Years Back, Towards CLEAN UP, COURSE CORRECTION, Besides BRINGING CLOSURE To This 12 Year Scandalous Case, Out Of The Glare Of Civil Society And A Court Of Law, On A Highly Sensitive Pandora’s Box Of A Issue Which Could Prove To Be A Can Of Worms With Some Ugly Skeletons Hidden In The Closet, Which When And If Opened, Could Stir A Huge Hornets Nest In Civil Society And A Court Of Law, Leading To A Supreme Court Monitored Probe Of The Justice Mudgal Committee Order which Was Done In The BCCI Scamdal , Where I Am Determined To Take This 12 Year Fight For Justice To Its Logical Conclusion, Till I Get JUSTICE . As A HORRIBLE VICTIM Of A Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy Centered Around THE HINDU ABC FRAUD GATE, I Murali Krishnan, The Aggrieved Whistleblower Appellant
Seek Immediate Intervention And
Investigation By ABC As The statutory Regulatory Body Of Circulation And Ensure That I Finally Get CLOSURE JUSTICE And My RIGHTFUL FINAL SETTLEMENT (Duly Keeping In Mind The Criminal Conspiracy Context) Which Has Been Unlawfully Denied To Me For 10 Years.
JUSTICE FOR MURALI KRISHNAN A Record 36 Whistleblower Petitions Have Been Sent To The Hindu Board Members In 10 Years, Where I Chose To Be PATIENT But PERSISTENT In The Face Of All PROVOCATIONS And PREVARICATIONS , Keeping Institution And Industry Interest Above My Individual Interest, As It Involves The HOPE, FAITH, BELIEF, EXPECTATIONS And ASPIRATIONS Of Civil Society On THE MEDIA – As The Watchdog Of Democracy And Democracy Values. HOPE,
12 Traumatic Years, With The BELIEF That, One Day, For Sure, TRUTH And JUSTICE Will Prevail in This Case Of OUTRAGEOUS INJUSTICE And WRONGDOINGS, Where Justice Will Not Just Be Done , But Seen To Be Done, And I Will Get The CLOSURE JUSTICE And My RIGHTFUL FINAL SETTLEMENT Which Was Inhumanly Denied To Me For 10 Long Years, To Bring To An End The Most Sordid And Shameful Chapter In Civil Or Corporate History. Beyond Anything And Everything ABC Needs To Get To The Bottom Of This Whole Thing , To RESTORE FAITH In HONEST CIRCULATION WORK And “GOOD OLD CIRCULATION VALUES” Of READER And READERSHIP – And Not RADHI And RACKETEERING, Only Then Will The REVENUE GENERATING ADVERTISER Have FAITH In CERTIFIED CIRCULATION.
Time For ABC To Do A REALITY CHECK And Introduce EFFECTIVE Checks And Balances To Checkmate WRONGDOING Of Any Order In The Industry . I Am Sure The Rogue Mafia Syndicate Of A Leadership In The Hindu , Who Have Been LIVING IN DENIAL Of The UNDENIABLE And The INDEFENSIBLE For The Last 12 Years Of SYSTEMIC FRAUD Of ORGANISED FRAUD Order , Where One And Everyone From The CEO , The Co Chairman , The Chairman And The Criminal Leadership In Circulation Department , Who Are All HAND IN GLOVE , TOGETHER Form THE CIRCULATION MAFIA , Will Try Their Utmost To MANIPULATE And MUSCLE Their Way Out Of Their CRIMINALITY And CULPABILITY In What Is A Watertight Case , Where They Will Do Their Utmost To SUBVERT And OBSTRUCT An Investigation Into Their WRONGDOINGS , Where We Can Expect A GAG ORDER Being Passed In Circulation Department Of The Hindu Not To Dare Speak The Truth , Where A GOONDA Raj Of A Leadership Will Try To Browbeat and Brazen Their Way To SABOTAGE Their Way Through , As Is Their wont , And Try To Wish Away Whatever I Have Exposed In My 10 Year Volume Of INSIDER WHISTLEBLOWER REVELATIONS . It Is For ABC To INDEPENDENTLY PROBE Into “L,affaire The Hindu ABC Fraud” , With An Independent And Extensive Forensic Investigation ,To Get To The Bottom Of The Truth , The Scam And The Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy, Ensuring CLEAN UP , COURSE CORRECTION And Bringing CLOSURE To This 12 Year Skeleton Of A Snowballing Case .
This Is The Defining Moment
As “ A WATCHDOG OF
WATCHDOGS ” To UPHOLD PROFESSIONAL PRINCIPLES &PRACTISES , Without Exception Or Compromise . After All There Is Something Sacred , A Lakshman Rekha Called WORK ETHICS And BUSINESS ETHICS , Which Sadly Was Thrown To The Winds By The ROGUE PRACTICES Of The Hindu Group Since 2004 . This Is Truly THE WAKE UP CALL For ABC As A Regulatory Body. ITS NOW Or NEVER.

Post Script: A POINT OF VIEW – A Few Honest Opinion Suggestions For ABC From A Humble Circulation Foot Soldier Who Breathed And Lived Circulation, Researching And Introspecting, Endlessly On An Exalting And Exhilarating Voyage Of A Spiritual Journey Towards
Circulation Excellence And
CUSTOMER DELIGHT. To Me CIRCULATION Was Not A Profession, But A PASSION I Lived, Ate, Slept, With Aspirational Dreams For A Life Time 25+ Years, Searching And Researching Reader Behavior And Expectations , Till I Was SHOT DOWN In A FAKE ENCOUNTER KILLING On 21st August 2005. 1) Quoting NRR Is Fundamentally Wrong :It Is My Honest Opinion That ABC As A Regulatory Body For Circulation, Themselves Fixing RADHI Rates (NRR) Every 6 Months Before Every Audit Period, For The 4 Zones, Is Not A Right Augury, To Deal With The Frankenstein Monster Of RADHI And RACKETEERING, Where To Me The Solution Seems To Be Worse Than The Disease,
12 Year Circulation Scam Racket In The Hindu. This Is A Frankenstein Monster Of A Problem Issue, Fully Capitalised By The Hindu, Which Needs To Be Addressed On A War Footing, Which If Left Unaddressed Could Lead To A FREE FOR ALL Situation In The Industry Leading To Authority, Credibility And Reputation Of ABC Being Undermined And Made Redundant , Where ABC Could End Up Certifying FRAUD And FAKE Circulation. I Still Cannot Understand , Why ABC “Watered Down” It Stringent Audit Norms, Where Earlier ABC Auditing Was Based On “A Cap On Discount” Which Largely Ensured That Only GENUINE READER ORIENTED COPIES Were CERTIFIED.
Further Earlier ABC CERTIFICATE SUMMARY, Publication Wise Was Provided, Transparently Giving Split Up Of How The Certified Figure Was Arrived At, WHERE , Sponsorship/ Bulk Orders, Student Subscription And Other Subscription Schemes, Institutional Orders etc etc Were Clearly Listed And Separated From News Agency Generated Regular Subscription Copies, To Ensure Quality Over Quantity Of Certified Copies. Now ABC Certificate Is Silent On This Critically Important Issue. I Think ABC Needs To Seriously RETHINK On This Critically Important Issue To Ensure TRANSPARENCY And ACCOUNTABILITY , Which Should Ideally Be DISCOUNT ORIENTED And Not RADHI RATE ORIENTED As It Is Today.
2) Need To Ban Sponsorship And Bulk Order Concept :Honestly, I Think It Is Time ABC Bans SPONSORSHIP, BULK ORDERS In ABC CERTIFICATION Norms, As This Is Fundamentally The Root Of The CANCEROUS Rot Which Has Beset and Besieged The Industry , Reducing CIRCULATION To A MAD RAT RACE. You May Ask Why ? You Will Get The Answer To My Question, When You Probe Deeper Into The Multi Dimensional Hindu Scam Racket, Where Exactly , And Through What Machiavellian And Machination Means And Methods The Hindu Has Reduced SPONSORSHIP , BULK ORDERS And INSTITUTIONAL ORDERS To Today Running To Tens Of Lakhs Every Month, Where These SO CALLED Sponsored Copies Are Distributed In Temples, Churches, Pilgrimage Centers, You Name It, Distributing Sponsored Copies Left, Right, Centre, Like HAND OUTS, Like Leaflets, Reducing The Hindu (English And
Tamil) To Pamphleteering, Where Copies Are Doled Out To The Masses In Mass Numbers, Irrespective Of Whether You Know The Language Or Not, Irrespective Of Whether You Read It, Or Use It As RADHI To Pack Groundnut And Grocery. To Put It In One Single Word It Is PREPOSTEROUS. This Must Be Stopped To Bring Some SANCTITY To ABC CERTIFICATION.
It’s A BLOODY FARCE That The Core Focus And Strength Of The Hindu Which Was Subscriptions, Subscriptions, Subscriptions And Nothing But Subscriptions, Till The Turn Of The Century, Is Today Sponsorship, Sponsorship,
SUBSCRIPTION Has Been Completely Forgotten And Given The Go By, As Sponsorship Is A One Stop QUICK FIX Solution For VOLUMES
VALUES Don’t Matter At All, Where For The MAMMON And MERCENARY “Dividend” Driven Hindu And Hindu Board Of The 21st Century Its Only ENDS That Matter Not MEANS, METHODS Or MORALS. Honestly, Its Not A Farce But A Fraud Where We Are CHEATING Ourselves More Than Our CLIENTS , In Not Being True To OUR CORE FUNDAMENTAL VALUES.I Would Advise ABC To Give Some Serious Thought To This Industry Impacting Issue Which Could Be An Excellent CASE STUDY As An EYE OPENER On What Not To Do .
3) RECHECK AUDITS : So Long RECHECK AUDITS Have Been Conventionally Done, Restricted To Auditing The Books Of accounts WITHIN The Publishers Office And Press. 139
With Some Publishers Becoming STREET-SMART, It Is Time ABC Expand Their Audit Methodology To Making Surprise RECHECK AUDIT RAIDS In Distribution Points, Cross Checking Facts And Ground Realities With News Agents To Know What’s Happening On And Under Ground Realities With Unannounced FIELD INSPECTION VISITS. This Is Required Today Particularly In The Context Of Whatever NONSENSE Has Been Transpiring And Conspiring In The Law Unto Themselves Hindu Since 2004, Where there Is A World Of A Difference Between What Is Being PERCEIVED And What Is Being PRACTICED, In The Sly. Towards This End, It Is Critically Important That ABC As A Regulatory Body Has A Small Team Of CIRCULATION OFFICERS, Like RNI Who Have Circulation Officers Posted In Their Headquarters And All Regional Offices To Cross Check Facts Of Registered Newspapers, To Cross Check Disconcerting Facts And Figures Before Conclusions Are Drawn And ABC Certification Is Given For Claimed Copies , In A World Where There Is An Attempt “To Beat The System” Rather Than Respecting Lakshman Rekhas And The Law. This Will Also Act as A Deterrent To Those Who Try To Beat The ABC Audit System, Particularly In The Context Of The New I & B Ministry Guidelines For DAVP ADS, Where Some May
Stoop To Any Levels,
Whatever It Takes To Take The Cake Of Advertisement Share In A Game Of ONEUPMANSHIP To Be ONE UP On Competitor ,By Hook Or By Crook , At Whatever Cost , Through Whatever Means , Stooping To Whatever Levels , Whatever It Takes ,Including a Publisher Becoming A WHOLESALE WASTEPAPER MERCHANT.
ABC Needs To Take PRE- EMPTIVE And PREVENTIVE MEASURES , To Be One Step Ahead Of WRONGDOERS Like The Hindu Group . Last But Most Important , It Is Necessary That ABC As A Regulatory Audit Body , Ensures That There Is No “Conflict Of Interest” among ABC Members , Of Any Kind , At Any Level , To Ensure That Audit Obligations Are Not Compromised Due To “Conflict Of Interest”, Where The 12 Year HINDU ABC FRAUD Scam Clearly Indicates There Is Conflict Of Interest , Somewhere , At Some Level . That’s For ABC To Investigate And Fix RESPONSIBILITY And ACCOUNTABILITY And Bring In CHECKS And BALANCES , So As To Ensure That Will Never Be Another Murali Krishnan Who Becomes A Victim Of AN ABC FRAUD SCAM In The Industry. CLOSING NOTE : What I Feel Sad Is That With A Lifetime 25+ Years Of Worldly And Wisdom “Hands On” Experience In CIRCULATION RESEARCH I Could Not Share My Lifetime “Wealth Of Experience In Circulation” Towards Institutional And Industry Well Being Beyond My 45 Th Year When I Was SHOT DOWN By The Hindu CIRCULATION MAFIA on 21st August 2005 . It’s Not My Loss But The Institution’s Loss And The Industry’s Loss, Where To Me , More Than WINNING , It Is WISDOM That Matters To Be A Better Human Being Beyond Being A Good Professional , Where MEANS , METHODS And MORALS Matter Most . What Rogues In The Hindu Badly Need Today Is Not Management Lessons, But Moral Science Lessons .
THE HINDU FORGOTTEN LEGACY VALUES - Towards A FAKE HINDU .
THE WRITING ON THE WALL
ENDGAME 11.05.2016 WHISTLEBLOWER PETITION NO.36 An “EPILOGUE” of An Open Letter Note to 15 Board Members of The Hindu’s Governing Council. Dear Director,
FRAUD IN THE HINDU – SINCE 2004 DISASTER, WAITING TO HAPPEN On 23rd April 2016 (Saturday) In Perhaps A First Time in Whistleblowers History, I as An Internal Whistleblower have Uploaded An Open Letter Note dated 23rd April 2016 to The Hindu Board Members on Facebook and Twitter, MAKING PUBLIC, What has so long for 10 Years been A Private Confidential Conversation Restricted to “The Hindu Board Room”, On The Shockingly Scandalous 13 Year CORPORATE FRAUD in The Hindu, Since 2004. MISSION EXPOSURE If You may Recollect, In 2015 As A First Step Towards EXPOSURE of Woeful Wrongdoings in The Hindu Since 2004, On 16th February 2015 (Monday) I had INTERALLY EXPOSED The 13 Year CORPORATE FRAUD Within the Hindu, By Taking My 13 Year Epic Crusade of A Battle to 2237 Employees of The Hindu, Through 2237 Explosive E-mails, Sent Individually to All Employees of The Hindu Across The Country , And Even Abroad – Ironically sent through The Server of The Hindu – With Voluminous Incriminating and Implicating Attachment Files, Exposing A Shockingly Reprehensible And Repulsive Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy, Within India’s Most Respected and Reputed Newspaper Group.
NAMING AND SHAMING – A PUBLIC DRESSING DOWN Internally Within The Hindu, This Explosive E-mail Destroyed The Credibility and Reputation of Not Just THE CIRCULATION MAFIA in Criminal Circulation Department of The Hindu, But Also The Credibility and Reputation of The Hindu Board Members, In A Shocking Case of Regulators Turned Collaborators in Woeful Wrongdoings Within The Company. This Internal Whistleblower Expose Within The Hindu in 2015, Only EMBARASSED The Criminal Wrongdoers and The Complicit Hindu Board Members, Where they lost their Credibility and Reputation Within The Institution. THE MOTHER OF ALL “EXPOSURE” As A Next Logical Step, Toward Taking this 12 Year Criminal Conspiracy Case to its Logical Conclusion, Now I am Working on Something BIGGER and “BALLISTIC”
I did Last Year “Within The Hindu”, Where Now ESCALATING THINGS I Intend Taking My “Missive Of A Missile” to A Larger And More Potent “Target Audience” Outside The Hindu. For The Last 4 Months I have been Working on “A Massive E-mail Database”, Bigger than What I Worked On Last Year in My Whistleblower Campaign “Within The Hindu”, Which could Prove ENDGAME to the 13 Year Scandalous Scam in The Hindu, Something Which could Potently and Potentially Destroy and Decimate the Reputation and Credibility of Individuals and Sink The Hindu As An Institution. Needless to say I will not go into The Specifics of This Mission, Which You will get to Know only when it Hits You, Hard, Hurting You, Where It Hurts You the Most.
All I can say is that This Is A Massive E-mail Database of “Movers and Shakers” Located Across the Country, People Who Matter Most, To Bring Some FINALITY to This 13 Year Shockingly Scandalous Case.
All I can say is that it was Wrong for You to Mistake Decency as A Weakness, Where though having A Watertight Case Where I could have Sued The Hindu and “Spilled The Beans” In 2005 Itself, I gave you A Long Rope, Taking into Account Your Stature and Standing in Society, Reputation and Credibility of The Hindu As An Institution. Waiting, Waiting As I An Aggrieved Victim of “Wrongful Dismissal” and “Gross Mistreatment”
10 Years, Today I am very Angry, Livid, Furious at The Feudal Justice System in The Hindu, Which given its Dubious Practices, Appear to be Extolling Criminal Values and Seems For Criminals, By Criminals, To Criminals, In A Democracy of Sorts.
On The Cusp of Becoming History Disappointed and Disgusted, As “I Burn My Bridges” to The Hindu, Where My Loyalty to The Hindu of 36 Years comes to An Apocalyptic End, As I GO PUBLIC in My
The Hindu and History, Where The Hindu Stands at the Edge of A Precipice, I Thought I must give You A Piece of My Mind, SPEAKING OUT On What I Honestly Feel About Issues And The Hindu As An Institution. A Parting Shot I Chose to be Patient and Restrained For 13 Years, Considering the Seriousness and Sensitivity of the Scandalous Scam Racket, And Status and Standing of The Hindu Board Members, Who Seem to be Driven More by EXPEDIENCY than PRINCIPLES. In A Civil Society there is Something Called GRATITUDE Where You Express “BEING THANKFUL” and HONOUR Those UNSUNG HEROES, Those PATRIOTIC FOOTSOLDIERS Who have Selflessly Served A Cause or Company For A Lifetime. Its Sad and Shocking that in The Hindu They Honour A Lifetime of Honesty, Loyalty and Integrity to Cause, Commitment, Customer, Company and Civil Society At Large, With INGRATITUDE and DISHONOUR. 161
Today After A Lifetime of Integrity to Institution, My Heart Bleeds, Eyes Wells And My Blood Boils with Anger (After A Lifetime of Blood, Sweat, Toil and Tears Towards Institutional Well Being), That I was so “HORRIBLY MISTREATED” in The Hindu, All for the Crime of Conscientiously Choosing to be Steadfast to Human and Institutional Values. Looking At The Farce and The Fraud of the Last 13 Years, The Hindu Board and its Ritualistic Board Meetings have been Reduced to A JOKE Where Hindu Board Members Appear like A Bunch of JOKERS , Rather Than JUDGES .
SHAME ON YOU All I say is, Shame On You Who are Worthy of being called Shame, Shameful and The Utterly Shameless, Where You and The Hindu As An Institution are A Shame to Civil Society, Who Make MAN loose FAITH in MAN And MANKIND. Today I Hang My Head in Shame to think or say I was Associated with this Institution – The Hindu – For Over 25 Years.
CONSCIENCE KEEPERS WITHOUT A CONSCIENCE This Sensitive Institution Impacting Issue of 13 Years has Reached “The Tipping Point”, Where At Its Core, Fundamentally it Boils Down to Your EGO Vs My ESTEEM – Self Esteem, Something Which Demanded The Issue be Addressed with EQUANIMITY. As Human Beings, Decency Demands that When You Make A Mistake, You First Admit, Apologize, Address the Mistake and Move Forward, Which Sadly You Failed to do for An Untenable 13 Years, All because of Your FEUDAL EGO. What ails THE SYSTEM in The Hindu is SWOLLEN EGO of INDIVIDUALS, Where MAN Becomes MEGALOMANIAC, Where INDIVIDUALS Become Larger than INSTITUTION.
Mr. N. Murali, Mr. N. Ram Epitomise BLOATED EGO, Who have A False Sense of Pride Even to Admit Mistakes in their BLUNDERS, Where their Stubbornness, Arrogance, Petulance, Intransigence is What is OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE and CLOSURE in this, What is An Open and Shut Watertight Case, And Leading The Hindu Towards INSTITUTIONAL DOWNFALL And INDIVIDUAL HUBRIS. This Stubborn INTRANSIGENCE is, Today Driving Me A Loyal Patriot of The Hindu, To Depose Against The Hindu and The Hindu Board Members, Where Everyone, Without Exception, From Mr. N. Ram, Mr. N. Murali, Mr. N. Ravi, Ms.Malini
Mr. K. Balaji, Mr. K. Venugopal, Mrs. Lakshmi Srinath, Mr. Ramesh Rangarajan, Mrs. Vijaya
Ms. Vinita Bali and Mr. S. Mahalingam – The Who’s Who of The Hindu – Will become Accountable, In Action or Inaction, In this Murky 13 Year Scam Case, Which they will Find Hard to Explain, Deny or Defend, As to Why in the World, Did
THE UNTENABLE for A Decade, Despite A Mind Boggling 36 Whistleblower Petitions of An Internal Whistleblower. Legally Speaking, Doesn’t it Naturally raise the Suspicion that Even Independent Directors like Ms. Vinita Bali and Mr. S. Mahalingam are suspected of being Complicit in the Wrongdoings, That they are afflicted by “Conflict of Interest” and “Vested Interest Agenda’s”. Any “No Nonsense” Independent Director in Their Place would have Simply Resigned From Their Position, If they are Unable to Enforce Good Corporate Governance Practices Within The Hindu and Bring about “The
The Hindu Desperately Wishes to See”.
POWER BLINDNESS – A CASE STUDY WORTH STUDYING As A Passionate Student and Astute Observer of Human Minds and Human Behaviour, Where I love Studying and Researching To Get “Into The Heads and Minds” of Not Just Role Models, But Also Rogue Models, The One Thing Which has Kept me Thinking for Quite Some Time, Leaving Me Wondering and Pondering Mystified, Is, What is it that Drives Esteemed People like you in The Hindu Board, Who have Everything Man or Woman can Aspire or Aim for In Life and Profession - Name and Fame, Respect and Reputation, Education and Experience, Wealth and Wisdom - But Still Behave So IRRATIONALLY and INSENSIBLY, So UNBECOMINGLY and UNTENABLY, Be Involved in Gross IMPROPRIETY, ILLEGALITIES, IMMORALITIES Which can only Lead to Individual and Institutional Suicide and Self Destruction. Truly, Something is Fundamentally Wrong with MAN As Mankind And Civilisation, Where MAN Fails to be - A Human Being. All I can Tell Ms. MaliniParthasarathy Is That, I Too am A Concerned Citizen of Not Just India & The World, But The Hindu. This is A Landmark Case in Civil and Corporate History, With Potential Far Reaching Consequences, Where it could Open A Huge Pandora’s Box, A Huge Can of Worms, Bringing Ugly Dark and Dirty Skeletons Tumbling out of the Closet of Not Just The Hindu, But The System As A Whole, Enough to Stir A Hornets Nest in Civil Society And A Court of Law. To Think, This Is All Because of, 3 Alphabets – EGO.
THE HINDU GROUP
HEADING TOWARDS INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE GRAVE COMPROMISES MADE As A Veteran Seasoned Campaigner, Who Breathed and Researched The Hindu, Day in Day Out (Honestly, The Only Thing I Know as A Foot Soldier Professional is to Sell The Hindu) Studying Human Minds and Customer Behavior from A Reader Perspective, A News Agents Perspective, A Customer Perspective For A Lifetime 36 Years, 24 x 7 x 365, MARK MY WORDS, The Hindu Group, With FAKE And FLAWED FUNDAMENTALS is Today Sitting On “A Ticking Time Bomb of A BUBBLE”, A BUBBLE Which Will BURST in the Not Too Distant Future, And The 137 Year Old Company Will Go BUST – Like Kingfisher
Airlines and Satyam (All Because of Greed, Corruption and Fraud) To be Thrown into The Dustbin of History. My Dear Learned Directors, I don’t Need to Study in IIT, MIT, Harvard or Columbia University to Tell You What is Pure COMMON SENSE, A COMMON SENSE Where You REFUSED To See “THE WRITING ON THE WALL”, A Common Sense, Which You Guys Either Don’t Have , Or Chose To Willfully Ignore Towards SUICIDE and SELF DESTRUCTION. All Goes to Prove that EDUCATION has got Nothing to do with Being CIVILISED and CULTURED.
LESSONS NOT LEARNT SYSTEMIC CORRUPTION Casino Gambling The Iconic American Multinational Investment Banks GOLDMAN SACHS And LEHMAN BROS. , With Over A Century Of Towering Reputation, Literally Collapsed Overnight, Over The Night, One Fine Day in 2008, When THE BUBBLE BURST And The Company Went BUST, Following The 2008 Economic And Mortgage Crisis, Where A Once Most VIED FOR Institution Ended Up Being VILIFIED Facing The vent Of Public Rage And Outrage, As The Iconic Century Old Institution Of Pre Eminence Plunged Into A Precipitous Fall Towards Downfall, From Grace To Disgrace, From The Hall Of Fame To The Hall Of Shame , All Due To MANS GREED, Following GRAVE COMPROMISES Made by some of THE BRIGHTEST MINDS Who GAMBLED with RISK, Only to Fail and Fall Towards INSTITUTIONAL DOWNFALL. THE HINDU ON THE EDGE OF A PRECIPICE The 137 Year Old Once Iconic Hindu Group with FAKE FUNDAMENTALS and SERIOUS STRUCTURAL DAMAGE Is Heading The Same SUICIDAL Way As GOLDMAN SACHS, KINGFISHER AIRLINES , SATYAM , SAHARA And SARADHA , Towards INSTITUTIONAL SUICIDE, Where You don’t need “A CONSULTANT”, Paying CRORES, To Tell You What is PURE COMMON SENSE. It is For The Hindu Board Members to Stop and Ponder For A Moment, Whether they would like to Join The Rogue’s Gallery Hall of Shame of B. Ramalinga Raju, Vijay Mallya et al.
“THE” CROSSROADS MOMENT OF THE HINDU This is Truly The Crossroads Moment of The Hindu Where You 15 Wise Men and Women of The Hindu’s Governing Council, May Choose to Heed or Not. It is Your Choice to Close Your Eye and Continue Turning A Blind Eye, A Stone Deaf Ear to A Whistleblowers Clarion Call of Reason and Rational to see “The Writing On The Wall”. From Now On, Its A Different Ball Game, Where The World (And Watchdogs) Outside The Hindu will get to Read my Tell All Whistleblower Revelations, Where If I Fail to get CLOSURE by 31st May 2016, I will be Uploading The Entire Scandalous Case File On Facebook and Twitter, Besides Sending it as An Attachment to My Impending E-mail Exposure To All “Movers and Shakers” Across The Country. The Choice Before You is to Either STEP IN or STEP ASIDE, And Let There be A Free and Fair, Full Fledged Fact Finding Independent “Third Party” Investigation, To get to The Bottom of The Truth, The Rot, The Scam and The Multi Dimensional Criminal Conspiracy, Involving Shameful Misuse of Constitutional Powers Towards Criminal Ends And Gross Abuse of Fundamental Human Rights. “Two Faced” Hypocrite Directors of The Hindu Board Can No More “Brazen it Out” And Simply “Brush A 13 Year Skeleton of A Case Under The Hindu Carpet”, In A Vain To Bury The Ghost of An Inconvenient Truth of 13 Years. Your Choice is To Either, “CLEAN UP YOUR ACT”, Or BE PREPARED TO FACE Impending “COLLATERAL DISASTER CONSEQUENCES” To Come. As A Human Being in A Civil Society, As Mankind, At Test is A Fundamental Question of Civil Liberty and Civil Rights, As To Which is Supreme, FREEDOM of PRESS in its Criminalities and Illegalities OR FUNDAMENTAL
A System of The Hindu, Which Can Only Be Best Described “A Stalinist and A Pol Pot Regime”.
TOWARDS CLOSURE All I can say in Conclusion is that, If I fail to get CLOSURE JUSTICE and My RIGHTFUL FINAL SETTLEMENT by 31st May 2016 I Will Be Proceeding Further Towards ENDGAME, To Take This Case To Its Logical Conclusion. Pray Good, Better and Saner Sense Prevails To See “The Writing on The Wall”, Before, It Becomes Too Late. I would Advise You to Carefully Go Through The Contents Of My Enclosed Whistleblower Book No.35 Which has been Uploaded on Facebook and Twitter On 23rd April 2016, Duly Understanding the Inconvenient Truth, That Today You are All, “Under Public Scrutiny” Heading Towards “Prosecution Scrutiny” SATYAMEVA JAYETE - TRUTH AND JUSTICE WILL TRIUMPH.
