The Sarkari way of working

Since the childhood days whatever i got to know about the functioning of government department, the perception always have been of inefficient,slow and corrupt way of doing work. As i grow up this view got stronger.

When i was in 4th year of my B-tech in IIT-BHU many of my friends had applied for passport. When the passport verification officer used to come for verification of residential addresses of my friends invariably the competition among them was that who gets it done in how much lower price. For this work which is supposed to be free of cost,officers used to ask for money as if its their right. My fellow mates used to use lot of tantrums to give them as less money as they can,but the matter of the fact is that no one lodged complaint against that officer. This shows that how much apathy we have against the system, at that point of time i was very much sure that there is no use of complaining against that person.

This all negative feelings were their despite the fact that my father has been a very duty bound medical officer throughout his life.May be due to the fact that i have always seen my father as ideal person and rest of the world as practical. And as a kid i always wanted to enter into system and change it drastically .Despite being "insensibly" corrupt this sarkari system has been running since long time and though there have been agitations against corrupt politicians and corrupt system at higher level but rarely we have seen any public agitation against the system. This always made me think.

Few years later i got selected in into civil services and I became part of the most infamous and so called most corrupt and oppressing department of government,POLICE. As the training started i got opportunity to know about the sarkari way more closely as part and parcel of it. Interaction with seniors and most importantly my District Practical training in Bhilwara District and there after posting in Ajmer District of Rajasthan gave me good insight of sarkari way. Though i am still novice to conclusively say anything about the system, but i know i have little changed perception about the system specially police.

The one of the most striking fact which i noticed is that almost at every level Police is understaffed. And those who are there are expected by seniors to do all the work but very few care about the resources available with the subordinates. Also for the kind of work and amount of effort they put in they are underpaid.Even though they don't have option of getting better job due to lack of sufficient jobs in the market and unless and untill you pay sufficiently its not possible to get efficient work.

And then lot of political interference are there in posting transfer etc which makes efficient and honest working irrelevant.One just need good political contact to get postings according to their own wish . Here role of senior officers come , they need to understand that keeping the morale of hardworking and efficient subordinate is much more important than making happy political leaders. Whatever from my little experience and from the seniors i know that political leaders understand situation and if you deny them with proper reason they wont trouble you most of the time. And even if they trouble then being at responsible position senior officers should start taking risk for the sake of the thing that at their position they should take stand of their own.

All these problems should not be used as excuse of being inefficient and corrupt,The point is that there are very evident causes of the effects.And even in these tough situation the sarkari system is still going on.The need of the time is to address these issues else the sarkari way of working may become inefficient to the extent that it may finally break down. I don't think that any one wants our sarkari system to crumble and become non-functioning .

कर्ण और कृष्ण का संवाद - रामधारी सिंह 'दिनकर'

Following is excerpt from poem Rashmirathi written by Ram dhari singh dinkar. Karna reply to Krishna when he told story of his birth and ask him to join pandava side. सुन-सुन कर कर्ण अधीर हुआ, क्षण एक तनिक गंभीर हुआ,  फिर कहा "बड़ी यह माया है, जो कुछ आपने बताया है  दिनमणि से सुनकर वही कथा मैं भोग चुका हूँ ग्लानि व्यथा  मैं ध्यान जन्म का धरता हूँ, उन्मन यह सोचा करता हूँ,  कैसी होगी वह माँ कराल, निज तन से जो शिशु को निकाल  धाराओं में धर आती है, अथवा जीवित दफनाती है?  सेवती मास दस तक जिसको, पालती उदर में रख जिसको,  जीवन का अंश खिलाती है, अन्तर का रुधिर पिलाती है  आती फिर उसको फ़ेंक कहीं, नागिन होगी वह नारि नहीं  हे कृष्ण आप चुप ही रहिये, इस पर न अधिक कुछ भी कहिये  सुनना न चाहते तनिक श्रवण, जिस माँ ने मेरा किया जनन  वह नहीं नारि कुल्पाली थी, सर्पिणी परम विकराली थी  पत्थर समान उसका हिय था, सुत से समाज बढ़ कर प्रिय था  गोदी में आग लगा कर के, मेरा कुल-वंश छिपा कर के  दुश्मन का उसने काम किया, माताओं को बदनाम किया  माँ का पय भी न पीया मैंने, उलटे अभिशाप लिया मैंने  वह तो यशस्विनी बनी रह

एक पुलिसवाले की व्यथा

लोग अक्सर कहते हैं कि पुलिस सही तरीके से क्राइम कंट्रोल नहीं करती है लेकिन पुलिस करे तो करे क्या। उग्र भीड़ को क्राइम कंट्रोल करने पर आधारित एक लघु कथा। उन्मादी भीड़ हाथों में नंगी तलवारें, लाठी, डंडे लिए पागलों की तरह पुलिस वालों को पत्थर मार मार कर खदेड़ रही थी। उसकी पुलिस भीड़ से अपना असलाह और खुद को बचाते हुए पीछे हट रही थी। थानेदार का सर बुरी तरह फूट गया दो सिपाही उसे सँभालते हुए पीछे हट रहे थे बड़े अफसर, एस डी ऍम, सब मौके से गायब थे। ऑर्रडर देने वाला कोई दूर दूर तक नहीं था। भीड़ हावी होती जा रही थी। सब को कहीं न कही चोट लगी थी।भीड़ को लाठी डंडो से काबू करने के हालात तो बिलकुल भी नहीं थे। सबकी जान पर बनी हुई थी परंतु हाथ में लोड राइफल होते हुए भी जवान गोली चलाने से बच रहे थे, कैसी कायर स्तिथि थी। अचानक हवलदार बुधना को भीड़ ने पकड़ लिया और एक आदमी ने बुधना के सर पर कैरोसिन की गैलन उंडेल दी और दूसरे ने माचिस निकाली ही थी की धाँय की आवाज हुई और माचिस वाला जमीं पर लुढकने लगा।दूसरी आवाज में तेल के गैलन वाला जमीं पर कला बाजी खा रहा था । भीड़ जहां थी वहीँ थम गयी और उलटे पावँ भागने लगी लेकिन......अ

Scheme for creation of National Optical Fiber Network for Broadband connectivity of Panchayats

The Union Cabinet recently approved a scheme for creation of a National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) for providing Broadband connectivity to Panchayats. The objective of the scheme is to extend the existing optical fiber network which is available up to district / block HQ’s level to the Gram Panchayat level initially by utilizing the Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF). The cost of this initial phase of the NOFN scheme is likely to be about Rs.20,000 crore. A similar amount of investment is likely to be made by the private sector complementing the NOFN infrastructure while providing services to individual users. In economic terms, the benefits from the scheme are expected through additional employment, e-education, e-health, e-agriculture etc. and reduction in migration of rural population to urban areas. As per a study conducted by the World Bank, with every 10% increase in broadband penetration, there is an increase in GDP growth by 1.4%. NOFN will also facilitate implemen
