[adrotate banner=”7″]~Akand Sitra As the heading suggests, this article is not just a chronological collection of the events that happened during my interview, but rather an attempt to make everyone realize the hidden potential in themselves and thus helping them become better human beings.
This can be considered as the third and the final article in my series.
Now, instead of just concentrating on what happened in Delhi during my interview, I would like to talk about my journey from December till April too.Since, ours is a welfare state, all the policies that the government makes are service-oriented.That is the only reason why IAS officers are often confused with “Benefit-givers”.So, in order to imbibe and inculcate the good characteristics, I started thinking on a new strategy. I think I will ban my subordinates from saluting me every time we meet.b) IAS gives money – My previous job used to pay me more than what a district collector earns. I don’t feel comfortable with these qualities at all. Power scares me, and I’m sure it can corrupt too.d) Service to people – This attribute is many times confused.I asked myself why people wanted to become IAS officers and asked whether I would fit into any of the following categories.a) IAS gives respect – True. And this explanation might prove to be controversial. A service-oriented person sometimes might not be suitable for this job.
