A Bureaucrat Speaks Rs.695.00/-


More than six decades after India's Independence, we still wonder if good governance will remain an elusive dream for the country. Political opportunism, nepotism and corruption have eroded governance, making people despondent and cynical. The country suffered as devolution of power and enforcement of accountability eroded. Terrorism, growing power of the underworld, unbridled criminal activities and corruption have rudely shaken the foundation of the world's largest democracy.

Traversing the transition of governance in the neo-colonial administration to representative democracy and unacceptable aberrations that threatened to destabiliie the process, the book highlights, in the light of the author's nearly four decade career in the IAS and thereafter, issues of vital importance specially those in areas of economic reforms, good governance and corruption. It also brings out interesting and, at times, intriguing aspects of the political elite including that of Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.

The book will serve as a guide to political masters, policy-makers and administrators alike in order to ensure justice, peace, efficiency and honesty in the administration.
