    Everyone must read this......

    I recieved this by email today.

    A must read for everyone:

    Pls Read this article and think about RAJU

    First Rank in State in Secondary School Examination

    First Rank in University in Plus Two

    First Rank in IIT Entrance Examination

    First Rank in All India IIT Computer Science

    First Rank in IAS Entrance Examination

    First Rank in IAS Training Institute

    On passing out from IIT Chennai Mr. Narayanaswamy was
    offered scholarship by the prestigious Massachusetts
    Institute of Technology, USA . He who came from a
    middle class family believed that he had a moral
    obligation to give something in return for the lakhs
    of rupees the government spent on him as an IIT
    student. He had the intelligence and conviction to
    realize that this money came also from the poorest of
    the poor - who pay up the excise duty on textiles when
    they buy cloth, who pay up customs, excise and sales
    tax on diesel when they travel in a bus, and in
    numerous other ways indirectly pay the government. So
    he decided to join IAS hoping he could do something
    for the people of this country. How many young men
    have the will power to resist such an offer from USA?
    Narayanaswamy did never look at IAS as a black money
    spinner as his later life bears testimony to this

    After a decade of meritorious service in IAS, today,
    Narayanaswamy is being forced out of the IAS
    profession. Do you know why?

    A real estate agent wanted to fill up a paddy field
    which is banned under law. An application came up
    before Narayanaswamy who was sub collector there, for
    an exemption from this rule for this plot of land.
    Upon visiting the site he found that the complaint
    from 60 poor families that they will face water
    logging due to the waste water from a nearby
    Government Medical College if this paddy field was
    filled up was correct. Narayanswamy came under intense
    political pressure but he did what was right - refused
    permission for filling up the paddy field. That was
    his first confrontation with politicians.

    Soon after his marriage his father-in-law closed down
    a public road to build compound wall for his plot of
    land. People approached Narayanaswamy with complaint.
    When talking with his own father-in-law did not help,
    he removed the
    obstructing wall with police help. The result, his
    marriage broke up.

    As district Collector he raided the house of a liquor
    baron who had defaulted Rupees 11 crores payment to
    government and carried out revenue recovery. A
    Minister directly telephoned him and ordered to return
    the forfeited articles to the house of the liquor
    baron. Narayanswamy politely replied that it is
    difficult. The minister replied that Narayanaswamy
    will suffer.

    In his district it was a practice to collect crores of
    rupees for earthen bunds meant for poor farmers, but
    which were never constructed. A bill for rupees 8
    crores came up before Narayanaswamy. He inspected
    the bund. He found it very weak and said that he will
    pass the bill after the rainy season to ensure that
    the bund served the purpose. As expected the earthen
    bund was too weak to stand the rain and it disappeared
    in the rain. But he created a lot of enemies for
    saving 8 crores public money.
    The net result of all such unholy activities was that
    he was asked to go on leave by the government. Later
    such an illustrious officer was posted as "State
    Co-Ordinator, Quality Improvement Programme for
    Schools". This is what the politician will do to a
    honest officer with backbone - post him in the most
    powerless position to teach him a lesson. Since he
    found that nothing can be achieved for the people if
    he continued with the State Service he opted for
    central service. But that too was denied on some
    technical ground.

    What will you do when you have a brilliant computer
    career anywhere in the world you choose with the
    backing of several advanced technical papers too
    published in international journals to your credit?

    When you are powerless to do anything for the people,
    why should you waste your life as the Co-Ordinator for
    a Schools Programme?

    Mr. Narayanaswamy is on the verge of leaving IAS to go
    to Paris to take up a well paid United Nations
    assignment. The politicians can laugh thinking another
    obstacle has been removed. But it is the helpless
    people of this country who will lose - not
    Narayanaswamy. But you have the power to support
    capable and honest bureaucrats like Narayaswamy,
    G.R.Khairnar who have suffered a lot under self
    seeking politicians who rule us. You have even the
    power to replace such politicians with these kind of
    people dedicated to the country. The question is will
    you do the little you can do NOW? At least a vote or
    word in support of such personalities?

    My search of the net reveals that this email has been there in circulation for the last one and a half years. But one thing for certain. Whatever is said about this no-nonsense officer from Kerala is true and is supported by various reports in press. Until May this year, he was working as collector of Kottayam district and now posted to Idukki district.
