But who screwed AIRINDIA? Workers? No. The political masters of
AIRINDIA are responsible for the downfall of AIRINDIA. Else how come
an airline which was posting profits sudden ran into loss. Going into
details of this would require a thread of its own. But my point is,
dont give half researched examples.

You are completely disconnected with the conditions in India. You
think if unsuitable terms are offered the organisation will shutdown.
Maybe in your dream. For man power intensive jobs in India there is no
dearth manpower. If unsuitable work conditions were to shutdown
organisation Army would have been the first one to shutdown. But that
doesnt happen because there is no dearth of people willing to join
Army. Ditto for Police and several other govt. jobs.
The hidden harmony is better than the obvious!!
