Sub: Rash and Brute behavior of passport processing officer in Samata Nagar, Kandivali.
I would like to narate a very unfortunate incident that happened to me while applying
for a passport renewal. I had been to your passport office counter at Samata Nagar
Kandivali (E) for a renewal of my passport today (6th October 2008). While going
through the documents the passport processing officer started making personal comments
on my inability to fill up the form. Inspite of my mentioning to him that I am an international
traveler (with a valid US visa, travelled to Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, US, Nepal). He inquired
about my profession & when I mentioned that I was a consultant for an NGO, he commented
that I wasnt qualified to be a consultant. He started laughing & insulting me before everybody.
It was very obvious that he wasnt happy with the fact that I was a non-Maharashtrian (though
I can claim to be a Mumbaite far more than any of these worthless fellows; my forefathers have
settled here a few decades).
Hope we change our attitude and start being good Indians. India wouldnt progress with such people
in these responsible positions. I am attaching a copy of this mail to a few other concerned websites as
I am not sure of a favorable response/action.
Thanks a lot & looking forward to some action.
