This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series I, IT employee named Shyam Sundar

We looked at the need for unions in the last part.

In this part, before going to Comrade Palanichamy’s story, let us try to find the answer for what termination means to any employee. Sudden termination is definitely an extreme shock for many of the employees.

We have covered news about various ways people behave on receiving termination from employment in articles published in our union website over the last 3 years.

Our version of Coronavirus – Arundhati Roy on Delhi violence

A democracy that is not governed by a Constitution and one whose institutions have all been hollowed out can only ever become a majoritarian state. You can agree or disagree with a Constitution as a whole or in part – but to act as though it does not exist as this government is doing is to completely dismantle democracy. Perhaps this is the aim. This is our version of the coronavirus. We are sick.
