Pursuing Idealism Through Civil Service: Memories of an Administrator and a Trainer

P.R. Dubhashi (Author)
Synopsis This book is a rich treasure of administrative experience relating to a whole range of development programmes taken up in the early years of post-independent India. The successive chapters of the book dealing with different assignments are administrative case studies, which are as interesting as they are instructive. Successful implementation of development programmes has many dimensions programme planning, organization building, coordination between different agencies, human resource development etc. But even more important than these technical aspects are the character of administration and attitudes, which the civil servants bring to bear on their work. Is administration people-oriented? Do the civil servants have a sense of dedication and idealism? If these were missing, the goals of good governance would remain elusive. The book hopefully may provide the needed corrective to governance. All those who are interested in better administrative performance would find the book valuable.
