Extortion - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

It's a design office
Owned by central government
Here people are in queue for retirement
Recruitment is banned
outsourcing is on progress.
Government pays
Sixty thousand rupee per month
for an outsourced fresher engineer
But that engineer gets
only fifteen thousand as salary
Remaining is eaten by the cotracter
in collaboration with govt. officials
in the name of overhead charges.
If a labourer is low paid
it is called extortion
When a design engineer is paid
less than a peon
in a central government office
What it is called?
