Sir, I guess that this art of complaining is part and parcel of our lives. We have always believed that we are perfect. Most of us have giant sized egos that will not allow anyone else to even question our practices or whatever we do any point in time, however irrational that may be.
For instance, even without our knowledge, we carry complaints about our wives to close friends, often criticizing them for no fault of theirs. The most silly point is their calling over their own brothers or sisters or some other relatives for a lunch or dinner, when we would have already decided on some other program.
We would feel that they have not taken our "permission". So, our minds are up to complaining for such silly things. I have seen it happen with my closest friends.
Yes, about the employers, we do complain so much. However, we ought to remember that we get our salaries, our perks and all other economic benefits from this single source. Hence, as the noted Organizational Behavior Specialist, Dr Udai Pareek points out, we assume a new identity, one that is totally different from that of the one we had before we joined the organization. We get subordinated to the organization's culture, its identity, its values, customs and norms of behavior.
So, we have only two rules -- rule number one says that the boss is always right. The rule number two is even more interesting -- if we have any doubt, we need to refer to rule number one!!
Hence, let us all forget that mode of dissatisfaction, that very vehicle of our complaints.
Regarding the third thing -- the wider society. Here, we need to complain, to speak up for all the rot that goes around us, and try to do something, or undo some nonsense. That this is happening to some extent, at least in some quarters, with the alert press, or the electronic media, is a very refreshing change.
