Bathroom towel restored an Indian bureaucrat’s pride
improving the tsunami and stationary warfare over time.
These are some of the characteristics of the Indian
bureaucracy who graduated and the former chief economic adviser,
of the government for a long period of three years.
wholater became the World Bank’s chief economist,
took leave in 2009
asa professor at
CornellUniversity in the United States to join the federal.
Government at the invitation of then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
His recently published memoirs,
Politics Magazines Simon and Schuster
are a light and published story about how Indian bureaucrats work.
Sir, the use of this term in public office fees in India is very common.
During the official facial meeting, Professor
Basu described how often he used the term.
But according to the new routine he had a small problem.
The problem that makes balancing difficult is that many doors in India
haveswelled and blockeda
afterdamp and that is why they have been forced to open, he wrote.
Theresult is that when you enter someone’s office tax,
notonlydo you knock,
youenter the house like a cannon with a sudden opening of the door.
Delay must be avoided
In the Ministry of Finance,
Professor Basu found that each file contained two internal pages of papers and documents,
used by 44 heads of departments and senior officials.
someof these delays and deadlines should have been avoided.
Delays cannot be forgiven
Delays should be avoided
The delay must be explained
Answer quickly today without delay
Professor Basu wrote:
If India remains demographic despite its stubbornness,
we must be praised.
That being said, they recognize that India is a longer country
thanit was 10 or 15 years ago.
You have a chair
In government meetings, on status issues.
Professor Basu noticed that the height of the chair could increase slightly.
It helps you in meetings if you sit in a relatively high chair and look at the other.
To achieve this goal, Professor Basu came up with a simple strategy.
He wrote: Most Indians.
The front seats are slightly straight under the right seat.
Pull a little to the surface without realizing it.
Becareful not to pull suddenly, scene, he wrote.
It’s slow, you get up slowly and you get the order.
The only risk is that if other people in your meeting do the same thing,
you won’t get any relative benefit.
All participants. Only at altitudes as high as the feet.
The struggle started by Professor.
Basu’s staff after accession was to enter a spacious,
well-maintained bathroom on the first floor of the ministry for the
purpose of the government secretary senior officials.
The bathroom had three towels with the secretary of finance,
the secretary of income and the secretary of expenses and three towels to wash, he wrote.
Professor Basu’s staff insisted he had a bathroom used by senior officers.
Their arrogance hurt them. I told them clearly I didn’t see myself.
The finance minister’s request slipped during
adiscussion on inflation control and deficit management.
I have to go into a special upstairs bathroom He wrote.
But the staff fought a fierce battle
andeventually Professor Basu was admitted to the elite bath.
I really enjoyed seeing the fourth towel with the new towel
onthe CEO [Chief Economic Adviser.
According to the World Bank’s Aging of Doing Business 2020 report,
India ranks third out of 190 countries,
and government work on many official bands and pressed tomatoes is very tedious.
I asked Professor Bose if the development of British Raj,
was responsible for such a customary colonial hangover in the Indian bureaucracy.
It’s a colonial hangover that keeps long serving bureaucrats like it a kind of Stockholm syndrome.
