SAD NEWS...

 
SUPDT. JACOB ABRAHAM
(28-Oct-1957 to 19-July-2016)


A sad news friends, Shri Jacob Abraham, Superintendent of Central Excise, is no more.
 
He was suffering from cancer and was admitted to the Lake Shore Hospital at Ernakulam, near Kochi, Kerala. He breathed his last at 9.45 pm yesterday. He is survived by his wife Sherly and 2 sons.
 
The funeral is scheduled for 11 am on Friday, the 22-July-2016, at Haripadd, near Allepuzha, Kerala.

He joined the Dept. as an UDC and rose up the ranks. Though he was, slim, not very tall, not a very muscular person and keeping a very low profile, but his network of informers & timely action made him one of the best "jaanbaaz" officers of Mumbai.
 
He has worked in almost all the other sister organisations of the Department, right from M&P wing, Enforcement Directorate and was one of the most successful officers in DRI, Mumbai.

He has filed the largest number of DRI-Is amongst the officers of the Department. 

When in DRI, in the follow-up action of an Ahmedabad DRI case involving forged DGFT licences for import of coal, he was the officer responsible for not only detaining Gautam Adani, but also arrested his brother Rajesh Adani, in the year 1994, inspite of contrary directions from the then Chairman, CBEC.

Some of his note-worthy cases were made against the MORE group, who were running the biggest racket of forged DGFT licences, in 1997-98. Another case in 2006 was of antiques smuggling, among many others including numerous cases of Red Sanders smuggling.

In recognition of his services to the Department, he was conferred with the Presidential Award for meritorious service.

Currently, he was on deputation to NIA, New Delhi.
 
May his soul rest in peace.
 
May the Almighty also grant the family strength and peace during this trying time.

DECISION... DETERMINATION...


The Board vide its letter dated 11-July-2016, have called for folders and integrity certificate and vigilance status etc., for holding of DPC, for promoting officers from Grp-B to Grp-A for the vacancy year 2014-15.  So far no date has been fixed for holding the DPC for the vacancy year 2015-16 and regularizations from temporary to permanent posts of more than 500 posts of Grp-A.
In Supreme Court, a contempt petition was filed (CP 314/2016) which may have triggered the issuance of the letter for holding of DPC by the Board. The tussle for reservations in promotions has not yet been resolved even after several judicial pronouncements. The Board comprising of several dynamic officers are not able to proceed in the matter after the tongue-lashing given to them by the Committee. It is expected that law should prevail and the authorities should have the courage to prevail upon their detractors. Their office should not be burdened with a large number of vacancies, in spite of having officers who are eligible for promotions, even though it is at the fag end of their career.
Those who dare, their names will be written in history, and those who do not, will not even be found in the archives of history.
A desire changes nothing, a decision changes something, but determination changes everything.

सुकून की यादों में...



खवाहिश नही मुझे मशहुर होने की
आप मुझे पहचानते हो बस इतना ही काफी है
अच्छे ने अच्छा और बुरे ने बुरा जाना मुझे
क्यों की जिसकी जितनी जरुरत थी
उसने उतना ही पहचाना मुझे !!

ज़िन्दगी का फ़लसफ़ा भी कितना अजीब है,
शामें कटती नहीं, और साल गुज़रते चले जा रहे हैं !!

एक अजीब सी दौड़ है ये ज़िन्दगी
जीत जाओ तो कई अपने पीछे छूट जाते हैं,
और हार जाओ तो अपने ही पीछे छोड़ जाते हैं !!

बैठ जाता हूं मिट्टी पे अक्सर...
क्योंकि मुझे अपनी औकात अच्छी लगती है !!

मैंने समंदर से सीखा है जीने का सलीक़ा,
चुपचाप से बहना और अपनी मौज में रहना !!

ऐसा नहीं है कि मुझमें कोई ऐब नहीं है
पर सच कहता हूँ मुझमे कोई फरेब नहीं है !!

जल जाते हैं मेरे अंदाज़ से मेरे दुश्मन
क्यूंकि
एक मुद्दत से मैंने
न मोहब्बत बदली और न दोस्त बदले !!.

एक घड़ी ख़रीदकर हाथ मे क्या बाँध ली 

वक़्त पीछे ही पड़ गया मेरे !!

सोचा था घर बना कर बैठुंगा सुकून से..
पर घर की ज़रूरतों ने मुसाफ़िर बना डाला !!!

सुकून की बात मत कर ऐ ग़ालिब....
बचपन वाला इतवार अब नहीं आता !!

जीवन की भाग-दौड़ में -
क्यूँ वक़्त के साथ रंगत खो जाती है ?
हँसती-खेलती ज़िन्दगी भी आम हो जाती है..
एक सवेरा था जब हँस कर उठते थे हम
और आज कई बार
बिना मुस्कुराये ही शाम हो जाती है !!

कितने दूर निकल गए,
रिश्तो को निभाते निभाते..
खुद को खो दिया हमने,
अपनों को पाते पाते..

लोग कहते है हम मुस्कुराते बहोत है,
और हम थक गए दर्द छुपाते छुपाते..

खुश हूँ और सबको खुश रखता हूँ,
लापरवाह हूँ फिर भी सबकी परवाह करता हूँ..

मालूम है कोई मोल नहीं मेरा,
फिर भी,
कुछ अनमोल लोगो से रिश्ता रखता हूँ !!
