    First Rank in IAS Training Institute

    On passing out from IIT Chennai Mr. Narayanaswamy was offered scholarship by the
    prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology , USA .. He who came from a
    middle class family believed that he had a moral obligation to give something in return
    for the lakhs of rupees the government spent on him as an IIT student. He had the
    intelligence and conviction to realize that this money came also from the poorest of
    the poor - who pay up the excise duty on textiles when they buy cloth, who pay up customs,
    excise and sales tax on diesel when they travel in a bus, and in numerous other ways
    indirectly pay the government. So he decided to join IAS hoping he could do something
    for the people of this country. How many young men have the will power to resist such
    an offer from USA ? Narayanaswamy did never look at IAS as a black money spinner as
    his later life bears testimony to this fact.


    After a decade of meritorious service in IAS, today, Narayanaswamy is being forced
    out of the IAS profession. Do you know why?

    A real estate agent wanted to fill up a paddy field which is banned under law.
    An application came up before Narayanaswamy who was sub collector the,
    for an exemption from this rule for this plot of land. Upon visiting the site he
    found that the complaint from 60 poor families that they will face water logging
    due to the waste water from a nearby Government Medical College if this paddy field
    was filled up was correct. Narayanswamy came under intense political pressure but
    he did what was right - refused permission for filling up the paddy field. That was his
    first confrontation with politicians.

    Soon after his marriage his father-in-law closed down a public road to build compound
    wall for his plot of land. People approached Narayanaswamy with complaint.

    When talking with his own father-in-law did not help, he removed the obstructing wall
    with police help. The result, his marriage broke up.

    As district Collector he raided the house of a liquor baron who had defaulted Rupees 11 crores
    payment to government and carried out revenue recovery. A Minister directly telephoned him
    and ordered to return the forfeited articles to the house of the liquor baron.
    Narayanswamy politely replied that it is difficult. The minister replied that Narayanaswamy will suffer.


    In his district it was a practice to collect crores of rupees for earthen bunds meant for poor farmers,
    but which were never constructed. A bill for rupees 8 crores came up before Narayanaswamy.
    He inspected the bund. He found it very weak and said that he will pass the bill after the rainy season
    to ensure that the bund served the purpose. As expected the earthen bund was too weak to stand
    the rain and it disappeared in the rain. But he created a lot of enemies for saving 8 crores public money.
    The net result of all such unholy activities was that he was asked to go on leave by the government.
    Later such an illustrious officer was posted as "State Co-Ordinator, Quality Improvement Programme for Schools".
    This is what the politician will do to a honest officer with backbone - post him in the most
    powerless position to teach him a lesson. Since he found that nothing can be achieved for the people
    if he continued with the State Service he opted for central service. But that too was denied on some technical ground.


    What will you do when you have a brilliant computer career anywhere in the world you choose with the backing
    of several advanced technical papers too published in international journals to your credit?


    When you are powerless to do anything for the people, why should you waste your life as the Co-Ordinator for a Schools Programme?


    Mr. Narayanaswamy is on the verge of leaving IAS to go to Paris to take up a well paid United Nations assignment.
    The politicians can laugh thinking another obstacle has been removed. But it is the helpless people of this
    country who will lose - not Narayanaswamy. But you have the power to support capable and honest bureaucrats
    like Narayaswamy, G.R.Khairnar and Alphons Kannamthanam who have suffered a lot under self seeking
    politicians who rule us. You have even the power to replace such politicians with these kind of people dedicated
    to the country. The question is will you do the little you can do NOW? At least a vote or word in support of
    such personalities?


    THINK ABOUT IT , Ladies and Gentlemen , and PLEASE DO SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS !

    What would I do? Exactly what I did. Move out at the first opportune moment. All the talk about 'patriotism' is good, but the reality is what is there in the first post.

    Mr. Narayanaswamy paid the price for his stupidity. He should have moved over to MIT. One should not bestow more value on something than it deserves. He did exactly that. He placed too much value on the Indian politico-bureaucratic system. I feel sorry for him, but I think he would have served humanity better had he moved over to MIT.

    Yeah, perhaps this is NRI mentality. Most of the readers may not like it, but deal with it. I am not going to be an apologist.

    Agreed 100%. One may have good intentions and a deep desire to improve conditions in his own country, but when the realization dawns that the nation is being run by crooks and scoundrels and no good deed will go unpunished, one should be wise enough to not spend their whole life banging their head against the wall, but instead, immigrate to countries where their talents are better appreciated.

    If you are an idealist, India is definitely not the place for you. If you are lucky, you end up like the Kejriwal's, but this chap is fighting the same system with the intent to correct it, can he actually correct is another question, and if you are not as lucky, then there are many a Narayanaswamys out there to tell their sorry tales.

    If you are practical, and can adjust to the Indian ways, there isn't as jugaadu a place like India.

    Personal growth is slow in India? Really?! This surprises me the most, I am again forced to ask, really? And it leaves me perplexed.

    Personal growth in what sense? If it relates to your career and the kind of money you can make, there is absolutely no stopping, possibly you are just not looking at the right direction for now. Just explore a little, and don't be disheartened.

    Here is how I have seen it, the extent you want to grow is absolutely up to you, as an individual. The opportunities out there are, if anything, humongous!

    We Indians are too sentimental.One has to be pragmatic and realistic.The much touted democracy has only given us corrupt netas and babus.Only leaders like Modi
    can help India realise her true potential.

    The point is why to waste one's skills, talent, energy, intellect if enough and proper opportunities aren't here. As far serving the nation and pay back the dues is concerned, it can be done from outside also and that too in much better way.

    In India, every where there is game playing and politics, from the queues of temple to do the Darshan of the deity, to marry a girl or boy one's choice, to become a PM...may be there is no place where every one plays fair and the people like Narayanaswamy has to suffer. This isn't the story of Narayanswami only...there are honest ppl everywhere but they are most of the times if not always, are sidelined as they don't know how to play games.
