Only half in jest, i would recommend closing down of the academy and
doing away with the IAS. as usual, we have chosen the wrong route --
training our civil servants on the russian-socialist model -- to rule
rather than to serve.

Individually, most of them are fine chaps, but as a system, they are a
bloody disaster for the Nation.

I'm not an IAS baiter -- I have many friends in the service, including
some secretary to GOI level officers both serving and retired and I've
said these same things to them also.

We won the Kargil was despite the IAS -- this is the popular feeling
here.

The service, because of their huge numbers and because they are ther
permanently on the scene, have become unaccountable to anyone and are
now driven purely by self interest and their own narrow ends rather than
for national interests. Of course -- there ARE exceptions to prove the
rule -- mr j.m.lyngdoh and dr sanjeev sabhlok are two examples i know.

The real problem is: how do we train & motivate the best and the
brightest in the land to serve effectively under the worst set of
scoundrels that can be produced by our country?
