Pls Read this article and think about RAJU NARAYANASWAMY

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 fact.

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 the, 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 bureaucra ts like Narayaswamy, G.R.Khairnar and Alphons Kannamthanam 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?

28th September 2007 From India, Calcutta
Hi Anita,
It is a really touching story. Previously also we have come across many such true stories but the reality is that people read and forget and never take any action towards the same. The whole system is corrupted by people in power who utilises the System for their own selfish motives.
When talking about India, we feel very sentimental, patriotic and raise an eyebrow when our highly qualified professionals move out of country for better placements but we never realise the situations and hard realities which force them to take such steps. It is high time we should realise our strength and put an end to these kind of corrupt practices by Politicians and save many more "Raju Narayanaswamy's from wrath of mean politicians.
it is true that it is not a one day task but "a long journey starts with the single first step which one daringly undertakes"

Dear Anita
Thanks for writing about raju narayana swamy, infact i am very proud we belong to the same district in kerala state.
But then your question goes unanswered because how much we all try it is of no use because as we have studied earlier india is having a govt which is by the people, to the people, for the people etc. etc.

The article is excellent. There are so many stories which are not coming to light. Eventhough people had an idea to serve the nation, the other wing of politicians don't allow them to do so. Many a time this is causing frestation and as a result of frustation brain drain the good old concept.
19th May 2010 From India, Adilabad
Great post..
...need to teach these politicians a lesson....the problem is when you reach out to the polling booth to caste your vote....some one all ready does it...so everywhere corruption and illegal activities...I strongly believe ..we should atleat have a bench mark to be elected as the MLA's and MP's...it should be IAS itself..to be a MLA or MP..then only we can have a good admn...in our country...
20th May 2010 From India, Srikakulam
Sure!!! what we have derived from this real saga of life is we have to pay back what we get, Mr Narayanswamy has truly paid back all the government and its people have invested.However he needs to pursue his passion of justice.
20th May 2010 From India, Madras
I say I am proud of my country for its rich heritage and culture ...........and at the same time I am ashamed of the political standards and there behavior knowing all this we still we give votes to such people who don't even know how to serve the nation. I don't say all are the same but I say most are the same.
It is all in the hands of the Youth whether they will stand against truth and honesty to be a true indian and live with pride or bend in front of such mean people and life a shameful life.

20th May 2010 From India, Bharat
Hello Anita
Raju Naraynaswamy has defied the age old beauraucratic rule of becoming a puppet in the hands of unscruplous politicians, ( His intention was laudable for giving back to society the benefits of his education, AFTER ALL HE TOO IS A HUMAN BEING HE SHOULD QUIT IAS AND EITHER JOIN ANY RESEARCH INSTITUTE AS HE IS A GENIUS ,( OR START UP A S/W COMPANY PROMOTING LINUX) THUS SHOULD BE A BEFITTING REPLY TO THE POLITICAL SHENAIGANS,
21st May 2010 From India, Kochi
All I can say is HATS-OFF, in-fact we have many Narayanaswamy's in India trying to change the system but unfortunately they become the victims so either they have to change or they will be changed.. If we go deeper its a question of every individual in this republic India have to think. To be honest when we read such messages, we are getting so emotional and just post our views rather than working on the basicis. These are the factors which keeps the youngsters away from politics even if they intend to get in. If we are looking for changes the way we want, i think its time that we respond rather than react to situation because that can provide solutions. Jai Hind.

I could think of this Quote by John F. Kennedy - Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

Good aritcle Anitha ,
This how our political system functions.I dn't have any words to describe the Indian political system and ruled by money minded people..They are least bothered about country....
16th June 2010 From India, Bangalore
It is we who are doing the mistakes and making to develop all those useless people.

If you consider your college, you have many friends both good and bad and u feel like it is their nature and just leave it which inturn is spoiling the whole nation.

How many are really thinking whoever is this politician or real estate agent or etc are one or the other friends/colleague/room mate in the past and u know about them previously.

We are not doing the change at that time and when it is happening we are making it let it happen. I think that is not the real way to think about a problem or just comment and leave it saying are in India politicians or becoming like that. Forget about becoming a politician and changing the Nation, are you ready to solve your own problems with that solving the problems of your neighbours that itself will bring a lot of change.

There was a story:

Once there was a man who thought of briniging a change in the society and which was a failure after few years.

Then he thought of changing his town which resulted in a failure aswell. After some days, he thought of bringing a chane within his neighbours and that didnt worked out aswell. Finally, he thought of changing his family members atleast and making them to be in a right path. Neither of them worked out. And finally he realised that 1st i need to change myself which will result in changing the rest of the things. But, at that time, he is in his final stages lying on his bed cant do anything.

So friends, please check yourself first and make things happen from your end - rest you can see the results.

Simply, in Technical terms:

Use bottom to top approach instead dof top to bottom approach ........

Cheers :)

Hi Anita,
Thanks for posting this and let us know. Its really a shame that brilliant IAS officers who want to serve the nation have to suffer for these xxxx policitians and corrupt people.
Let us know if we can start a blog or create a signature campaign to show support. As suggested reporting to media channels will also be good.
Only thing - In doing this we need to take Mr Narayanswamy's permission so that he doesn't face any trouble from unwanted elements and media if he doesn't wish too.

Dear All,
Sri Raju Narayanaswamy IAS is a real Jewel and at least 50 ministers with such rare quality in our government can change the course of our country. This election let us test Swabhimaan Bharat and vote them to power as I am sure if SB does even 50% what their agenda is then India will be growing at 20% and soon the poverty will be yesterday's story. It is very sad that an illiterate or a man with criminal cases are in power and we can't do anything. There should be only two party and a negative vote counting system to clean up the mess and good candidates like Sri.Nararayanawswamy must run for election. I wish this dream comes true for our great nation.
Cheers to All and thanx for sharing this great, I must say, lesson.
Best Regards

Honesty paid him honor ......... People like him, respect him and will respect him forever.....

General public thinks what contribution can "I" alone make for the improvement of system... however, what i think is You atleast start today or tomorrow others will follow you....... But the major thing is to START the thing/process......
Remember ROME IS NOT BUILT IN A DAY.......... I can make contribution and if i am right today or tomorrow people will follow me............

Is he the first officer of this type? Do u think that this will be the last of such cases? How many people have voted till date? Have TATA Tea and relax. Many have gone. Nobody has the courtesy to prevent such cases in future. It is good for Mr. R Naranaswamy to have his life his own way. Today we will read this 2moro we will again be part of the same system that rules us................................

Please reply...
16th July 2012 From India, Bhubaneswar
Indeed this is a post that every Indian should go through and it will be pleasure if we can do something positive for Mr. Narayanaswamy. We only choose these politicians who are selfish and do only that is profitable to them, then they are not even concerned whether people are suffering & dying but they are enjoying to the fullest.
Because of such dirty politicians, brilliant personalities are migrating to other countries where they can achieve their desired goals then after when they will have name & fame, they will be praised as he/she is an Indian and bla-bla-bla........!
This is really disgusting that when we have such personalities among us, we don't allow them to come up but dump them down.

Secretary General Education Govt of Kerala
There are lot many unfolding if you browse further on YouTube. It's a pleasure to have such a man amongst us. Ofcourse every state we used to see such personalities, name a few, Mr.Sahayam, IAS, Govt.of TN. who was appointed to enquire into the billion worth granite scam case in TN who was transferred more than 23 times in his around 25 yrs. career after his IAS pass . And then there is Mr.Umashankar, IAS, who was involved in revolutionizing education system in TN who was shunted out to various postings repeatedly and this list is endless.
Scores of brilliant men & women refuse Admin.Services to shy away the ignominy of landing up in opening the door of the car for scoundrels, the politicians/ministers & MLA/MPs. Afterall still they are paid only paltry salary as against lucrative IT jobs which start paying the brilliants over a lakh to a fresher to start with. Who cares in this country. They vote for a quarter of liquor and for a briyani packet. This trend omnipresent all over the country.Unless the electorate mind this awareness this country continue to elect such persons only. We just saw an EVM of just concluded elections to 5 state assemblies was thrown in the street even before the votes recorded were counted. There is no report in the media as to what is fate of that EVM.
My own experience, I was not that brilliant like Mr.Raju but could manage decent academics, left a CPSU on VRS. During my 31 yrs of service with this CPSU I faced many such challenges. By the time when I quit I confronted a scam of 7 Cr.Rs. worth of PF money invested by my predecessors in a letter pad co. unlawfully. When I took over the reins I unearthed this scam and when I went to the police, the SP refused the official complaint to register a FIR resulting me to send it by regd.post. With the intervention of my Board a case was regd.(Surprisingly the CBI already had prima facie report on this which was not revealed to me). Exhausted with vested interests in and outside I had to take VRS. The farce in my episode is, my gratuity was withheld on the plea why I didn't prevent the scam before it all happened. My F&F settlement was released when I took it up strongly with my Board & Ministry dragging all involved. The final result was, my successors didn't responded in the Sessions court and the case was dismissed for want of evidences against the accused and the Co. didn't prefer to go on appeal. And the unrecovered invested money was compensated by the govt. This is my own story. Corruption is not going to be weeded out till the end of this universe.
