Best Of August 2021

Presenting our top five stories from the month of August, which gives us a peek into the effort and creativity that our bureaucrats put in their work.

A true bureaucrat tends to ace in every aspect of his life – whether it is personal or professional. They put their heart and soul into their work and bring out the best in themselves. When given a post, our civil servants do everything in their power to do justice to it. And the same happens when it comes to the portrayal of their creative side.

Apart from burning the midnight oil to bring development in their regions and uplift their people, there are several officers who also take out little scraps of time from their busy schedule to pursue their passion. As the month of August comes to an end, we present our top five stories of the month showcasing the true zeal of Indian Civil Officers.

WANT TO CLEAR UPSC WITHOUT ANY COACHING? THIS IAS OFFICER WILL TELL YOU HOW

If you are going to prepare for the civil services exam, considered one of the toughest in India, and are facing various dilemmas, then this story is for you. A girl, belonging to a farmer’s family and who fights for her rights in a patriarchal society, fails in her efforts to fulfill her dreams. However, that was not the end as she rises up again, fearless and confident, and fulfills her dreams without any hurdle. The officer in context is Ms. Tapasya Parihar who became an IAS officer in 2017. She topped the UPSC exam with an All-India Rank (AIR) of 23.

BUREAUCRATS SHINE IN THE WORLD OF PHOTOGRAPHY

August 19, is the day of the photographers, recognized all over the globe as World Photography Day. And one should not be surprised to know that our bureaucrats have succeeded rather too well with the camera and lenses. The day brings out hidden talent among people and makes them realize their passion for photography.  A number of civil servants also pursue photography and have a deep interest in it. We at Indian Masterminds spoke with a few of them and got to know about the importance of photography in their lives.

PLEASE STEP ASIDE FOR THE WOMEN BEAT OFFICERS

In perhaps the first such move of its kind anywhere in India, as many as 46 women beat officers have been appointed in a Delhi area. To those who may not be aware of it, a beat officer is the most important bridge between the public and the police establishment, and from the days of the British, this post has been held by men. Now, the North-West police district of Delhi would be the first area to break the age-old tradition. These women beat-officers will patrol the region on their motorbikes and help people by addressing their grievances. The initiative of North-West district DCP, IPS officer Ms. Usha Rangnani is garnering accolades from everyone, especially the elder population.

THERE IS MORE TO RAKSHABANDHAN THAN A THREAD- ASK THESE CIVIL SERVANT SIBLINGS

In India, Raksha Bandhan- or simply Rakhi- is celebrated to mark the bond between a sister and brother. Many historical and mythological stories are associated with this pious event. But now, and in many places, Raksha Bandhan binds all siblings together- and not just brothers and sisters. On the occasion of Raksha Bandhan this year, we at Indian Masterminds take a close look at civil servants who are siblings as well as colleagues working for the Indian Government.

A BUREAUCRAT AND A WRITER ROLLED INTO ONE

It goes without saying that civil services require complete focus, grit, and determination. Dealing with the public, looking into official matters, flipping through numerous files, bringing out policies, and making changes in the country for good, and taking decisions day in and day out can be extremely tiring. But this is something bureaucrats do on an everyday basis. Amongst all of it, one may hardly get any time to pursue their hobby. But such is not the case for IPS officer Sukirti Madhav Mishra, who rejoices in pursuing his passion for writing and reciting poetry, even after a long day’s work.
