I accepted packing and dispatch work in The Hindu newspaper on the assurance of the branch manger that I will be offered a news agency for the newspaper. Even after 10 years of work, I was offered an agency only for a part of an area that I was asking for. After only 9 months, I was removed from both works, and they were offered to another man, who refused dispatch work without agency first, with the additional area that I was asking for.
I working under a good manager? This was the question that tormented my mind
quite often in more than 10 years of my association in the late 1980s and early
1990s with a well respected newspaper organisation in India, The Hindu. I felt
very excited when I was offered the contract work for packing and despatch work
in one of the branch offices of The Hindu in Coimbatore.
