Insurance Corporation Employees’
Joint Secretary, A.I.I.E.A
A Long, Active, Purposeful, Healthy Life
On His Retirement from L.I.C of
on 31.12.2011. India
Com B.Sanyal, Joint Secretary, A.I.I.E.A and General Secretary, C.Z.I.E.A is retiring from the services of L.I.C of India on 31.12.2011.
On the eve of His Retirement from L.I.C of India, I would like share a few in this forum.
I First heard about Com B.Sanyal, through Insurance Worker in 1988 when the Goondas of Congress I attacked our Raipur Divisional Office, ransacked the Office properties and made Police to arrest Com B.Sanyal. What was the offence? For Displaying a Cartoon Exposing the Bofors Scam that too in Our Notice Board provoked the Congress Goondas to behave violently. But they could not intimidate Our Comrades and there was a Spontaneous Rally by Insurance Employees and other trade unions condemning the Attack.
I had the opportunity to hear him for the First Time in 1994 in the 15th General Conference of A.I.I.E.A at Ahemedabad and His voice was a unique one and His way of expressing the views will be very very categorical. His Firm Belief on the Marxian Ideology will get reflected in his speeches.
Comrades who attended the 19th General Conference of A.I.I.E.A will not forget the Magnificent Hall erected for this purpose. I also recollect one incident during that Conference. On the First Day, there were some difficulties in the catering arrangement. In the evening, when he was reporting that they negotiated with the Caterers, Com N.M.Sundaram intervened and asked “ What was the result?”. Com Sanyal spontaneously replied “Success is Our Tradition”.
His care for the Comrades of the Zone are well known to me. When ever any Comrade from Central Zone visits Vellore for treatment in CMC Hospital, He will inform me well in advance asking to extend all possible help.
When I requested him to inaugurate the 23rd General Conference of Vellore Division at Gudiyatham in April 2010, He readily agreed and travelled all the way from Raipur to the Small Town Gudiyatham in Vellore District. His address enthused the comrades of Vellore Division. His speech during the delegates session and the story of a village in which all houses were prepared with loaded guns is still ringing in my ears.
He is retiring only from the services of L.I.C and his journey for the Insurance Employees and the Working Class will continue.
On behalf of all members of Vellore Division,
We once again wish
A Long, Active, Purposeful, Healthy Life.
My Thanks to Com Anu Malhotra of Ludhiyana who took pains to design a Greetings for Com B.Sanyal in a very beautiful manner
