Bureaucracy is the art of lying in a politically correct way
by Amlan Banerjee on Jun 11, 2009 01:41 AM  | Hide replies

The art of Bureaucracy is saying the wrong things in the right way. It does not pay to be straightforward or say whatever you feel to be true.

In the civil service interview, discussing about Nehru, I told the interviewer that Nehru was a great deal responsible for the Indo- China war and also cited independent reports in support of my opinion. By saying that I threw away any chance that I had of getting the job. (I attempted this exam only once and got to the interview stage on the first try...but never attempted again.) So, the lesson is that you have to be politically correct. Any person, who is straightforward in his/her opinion has very little chance of getting selected in the Civil Services.

So we hear Subhra talking of her priority areas ... rural development, SC/ST, women and children. These are what the interviewers want to hear. There might be exceptions, but most civil servants forget these "priorities" in their race for plum postings and career upliftment etc. later in their life.

"I picked Public administration because I thought I should know the basics of administration. And psychology, because I had very little time."

...the real reason is that Public Administration and Psychology are the most scoring papers. But you'd not like to admit that...would you?

It pays to be a good hypocrite if you are a civil service aspirant ... and those in the interview board love to hear those hypocritical utterings.

I see another bright young person who had the fundamentals to contribute tot he economic growth of the country turning into a sycophant, parasitic corrupt and inefficient government babu. I hope and pray that you, and other of your ilk can prove me wrong

Hmm interesting congratulations for sure!
by mohinder pandey on Jun 11, 2009 01:14 AM

She cleared or she is first rank, well not interesting for us. She left the Job to prepare and cleared. That was inspirational. and that too she being a woman (I always doubted there capabilities :). Well from the feeling looks like we believe her goal for development. Also somebody coming with some experience in IT is defintely trustworthy than the one not. Well Hearty Congratulations and wishes for ur success. And yes do earn money while serving but make sure that it is negligible in comapred to ur Contribution for development.

Indian bureaucrats are corrupt, lazy and exploitative of poor

And guess what? 3/4 are from IITs.

Shubhra, hope you are different. I appreciate your objective of developing rural India. That's where the real India lives. It does not live in a couple of glass buildings in towns or cities. Good luck and best wishes!

"Objective". Well....have you been to a Civil Service interview...I have. And every single one of them talks about those lofty "objectives". So, don't be too appreciative...people need to utter those words for getting through the interviews

A few more corrupt white elephants added
by swift swift on Jun 10, 2009 11:05 PM  | Hide replies

The result of Civil Services adds every year a few more corrupts to the lot of beurocrats. These beurocrats are equally responsible for making the country corrupt, undeveloped and backward. Civil Services should finish now by replacing some good plan. It is astonishing that any Civil Servant retires having crores of wealth. They are simply parasites to the poor people of this poor nation. I hate them.
