Best Of April 2021

As the fourth month of the year 2021 comes to an end, we present our top five stories by our correspondents Bhakti Kothari, Raghav Goyal, and Pallavi Priya

The bureaucrats and officers of our nation continuously inspire us with the kind of work that they do and the way they deal with people and situations. They stand upright during a crisis and give their best to keep their people safe and comfortable. Most of them are taking unique steps to uplift their city while some are proud of the language they have grown up in; some go beyond their duty to help out the youth in every way possible and some go beyond their duty to bring peace and harmony in the nation. Their steps to enhance and beautify their surroundings make the environment surreal.

Here are Indian Mastermind’s top five stories that display the determination and goodwill of top bureaucrats, from the month of April.

GOING BEYOND DUTY FOR THE YOUTH

It goes without saying that education plays an important role in the life of people, more so for the people who come from areas where there are less opportunities for decent livelihood. Something on these lines is true for a police officer in Uttarakhand, who gave priority to education and is now donning various roles to serve the people of the state. Apart from being a policeman, Mr. R K Saklani is a popular guru for the youth in the state.

‘BUDDHA SE KABIR TAK’ – AN IPS OFFICER’S PEACE MARCHES TO PROMOTE HARMONY

Having been a civil servant for 35 years, senior IPS officer, Mr. Vinod Mall came across hatred and violence up close and realized that it is important to do social interventions to promote acceptance and togetherness. He started a socio-cultural movement called “Buddha se Kabir Tak” across the hinterlands of Uttar Pradesh in the year 2018, to preach harmony and communal teachings to locals and involve people to participate in spreading brotherhood and love. And this he does by way of carrying ‘yatras’, or peaceful processions, through various towns and cities of the state.

‘ROOPANTRAN’: A FOREST FIRE OF DIFFERENT KIND

It started with a single act of good intention, and like a forest fire, spread out to 13 districts of Uttarakhand. Back in 2015, when Geetika Joshi, a 2010 batch Uttarakhand state civil services officer, took the initiative of contributing her own funds to transform a ramshackle government primary school in Ranikhet, she perhaps did not realize that it would kick-start a chain reaction.  No wonder her small efforts have turned out to be a big educational initiative for the state government. The initiative is now called `Roopantran’.

‘I LOVE MY MOTHER LANGUAGE AND I DON’T FEEL INFERIOR’

In a world where everyone is inclined towards English and even tend to accept its monopoly, there are many who cherish their mother language. One such person is 2015- batch IAS officer Nishant Jain. He chose ‘Hindi Literature’ as his optional subject for UPSC and went on to not just clearing the exam but also securing All India rank 13.

UPLIFTING RANCHI

Ranchi, the capital city of Jharkhand, is one of the many Indian cities selected to be developed as a smart city under the Prime Minister’s Smart Cities Mission. The district, with Ranchi as its part, is coming up with new initiatives frequently for the betterment of its people, thanks to District Collector, Mr. Chhavi Ranjan, an IAS officer of the 2011-batch, Jharkhand cadre.
