Recently, In a conference Forbes India CEO Dialogues held in New Delhi on March 17, 2016.
From the discussion panel, Amitabh Kant who is the CEO of Neeti Aayog was quoted saying: “Officers who are acting in good faith need to be protected. Thousands of decisions that civil servants take to further the prospects of the sector they work in may have a consequent pecuniary advantage for some”, said Kant, “but the present law is warped and works to the disadvantage of well-intentioned civil servants”, he added.
This gave rise to much debate and discussion on the topic. And why not? Honesty is the best policy! but can we really apply this in the big bad world? At least not in case of India, as dishonesty is highly paid in our country.
Sadly, it is those honest officers who face the wrath of the manipulative Indian Politics. They are the ‘whistle blowers’ who have rightly done the duty assigned to them, who are constantly targeted and brutally punished.
Honest Indian pay’s homage to a few of such unsung heroes who fought corruption to the tee. Some of them, till their last breath.
We salute our heroes! May the bridges they burnt, light the way to freedom from corruption and manipulation in the political world.
