|The original concept of Free Agent was invented in India; read about it.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story whatever name to deliver the services for which they were paid salaries by their employers. The whole country runs on the model of free agency; everybody at their work place was a free agent running their own business on the side. When the private banks were nationalized decades ago, a dumbest idea to start with; the banks were turned into private piggy banks for the politicians and the bankers to award loans for kick backs without any risk management study of the clients. The banks were ended up with unpaid loans amounting to hundreds of millions for tax payers to take the tab. The entire agricultural subsidies for irrigation, crop protection and land management intended for the farmers goes to the local politicians and the government workers in the department to share the loot. From village to district to state to federal level, every employee is a free agent to charge a fee to deliver a service.. The fame for inventing the concept of free agency belongs to India then others copied their play book later. The private college industry went berserk, hundreds of engineering medical, dental; pharmacy and nursing schools mushroomed recently without trained staff. Every admission at these schools is for sale for a price. At truck scale stations on the highway, the station staff issues their own receipts to collect charges on the behalf of the government to pocket it. The receipts received on payment were all fake. Every staff member at the truck scale station is free agent. Most doctors at the government supported public hospitals in the country act like a free agent collecting fee for their service. At a private hospital, Juggernaut leaned first hand a lot about free agent during his travels in India. At a local a private hospital recuperating from an illness, the hospital employees from an attendant to higher ups behave like a free agent. A tip was expected immediately after a service is rendered; say giving a sponge bath, or any help at the bed-side including providing a wheel chair or bed-pan. These workers were full-time employees of the hospital and yet behave like free agents in collecting money on the spot for service rendered. Every employee either working for the government or private business is a free agent in the country when it comes to render a service to the customers. The free agency is a full circle in never ending motion going round and round. Collecting a fee from one hand to render a service and giving it to another for receiving a service. No gain and no loss just frustration. . A free agent mentality prevails in every mind across the land. Now Indians want a patent and royalty for anybody that copy free agent mentality sine they own the patent and perfecting it on a daily basis. Tweet
