  • Description
    What is ethics? How important is ethics in the context of governance? What are the challenges that hinders an officer’s pursuit of ethical conduct? Does it pay to remain ethical while the unethical, seemingly, rules the roost? Is it worth paying the price of being ethical? These questions are but refrains of the thought process of every civil servant: new and seasoned. These questions cloud his judgment. And also affect his productivity. For some unlucky few, these questions may even bring forth a lifetime of torment. Even more unfortunate are those whose conscience never raises these questions. What makes matters worse is the absence of any well-defined, legally tenable, and universally acceptable model code of conduct for officers that defines ethics. Coupled with political vendetta this spells the perfect recipe for disaster for them. This book is an attempt to contextualise a framework that will help civil servants make a learned decision in the face of the aforementioned questions. It is an aid to help them find their moral compass.

    Wonderful

    Dear sir, it's my pleasure to write feedback about on your books as a civil service aspirant I have already read your both books.
    and also recommend to my fellow aspirants to read it for the deep insight of civil services.
    From the last few years, I am closely observing the policy of the government of India regarding many issues like appointments and works of 5C. Privatization and disinvestment of profit-making PSU. RBI decision on the economy etc.
    As a young citizen of India, I am disappoi...

    Excellent

    I found initial few pages a bit heavy on reading due to their psychological undertone. But once I reached pages of "Journey", time just flew by. I was able to understand the kind of dilemmas civil servants faces.
    Also ending of book is really good in a sense that it gives direction and tools to tackle the dilemmas not only for Civil Servents but for any person.

    All in all I loved the book.

    I am sure this should be a must read book for any civil services aspirants or entrants.
