Not Just an Accountant: The Diary of the Nation’s Conscience Keeper is the autobiography of India’s eleventh comptroller and auditor general and the man who is regarded as the symbol of the anti-corruption movement, Vinod Rai.
Summary of the Book
This autobiography offers a rich-in-anecdote narrative and inside information as Rai talks about the major scams that shocked the entire nation. It discusses the procedural inconsistencies in the issuance of licenses for second generation spectrum allotment, the last-minute quick-fixes in the conduct of the XIX commonwealth games, the loss of national resources during the allocation of coal blocks, the violation of systems and the clear display of familiar capitalism in the exploration of hydrocarbon and the sad story of civil aviation in India. Rai not only exposes government’s failures and controversies, but also delves into the mandate of the CAG as an ardent watchdog. Also, he focusses on long-term solutions to corruption in the country. He talks about the urgent need for ethics - the pursuit of excellence, accountability, probity and transparency within the governments, the bureaucracy, corporate enterprises, and even public life.
