Indian Bureaucracy-The Insensitive Native Ruler
21st Century India can not succeed unless and until Red Tape, Nepotism and stronghold of Indian Bureaucracy is loosened & reformed. Native Indian Bureaucrats are actual rulers of India as they frame policies and implement as well. They tweak policies in connivance with Politicians to favour themselves, kith-kin and cronies. More than 90% NGOs are formed by them, family members and friends.
Public Funds meant for Welfare Schemes such as Alleviation of Poverty, Education for all, Health for all, Employment guarantee, Housing for poor, Safe drinking water and Sanitation, Irrigation Schemes and many more siphoned off by Bureaucrats in connivance with Politicians and their NGOs a well-known secret. This is a system which made deep inroads in our DNA. It has eaten away our roots like a termite. This blatant loot of Public Funds for Welfare Schemes gave birth to Crony Socialism. The Pseudo-Socialists literally made capitalism much abused word whereas socialists themselves thrived on Public Funds meant for Poor & Downtrodden. Unfortunately in public discourses, one finds innumerable discussions on Crony Capitalism but not once on Crony Socialism!
In the name of Socialism and being Welfare State for last Six Decades our Native Rulers(Bureaucracy & Politicians) made policies to suck our blood and cripple us forever. Perpetual misery, haplessness and complete absence of ethics from our Political, Judicial, Economical, Educational and Social system is direct outcome of Crony Socialism practiced and promoted by Native Ruling Class(Indian Bureaucracy+Politicians+Judiciary+Media+Petty Traders+NGOs).
Bureaucracy’s stronghold is so entrenched in the system that if one challenges it, gets booted out with humiliation, silenced into oblivion. To keep itself clean, bi-partisan and above law, the brown sahibs(Indian Bureaucracy) created a fall guy/blameguy in Politicians who are regularly caught, lynched for corruption and related ills; but hardly any bureaucrats. The moment a single bureaucrat is caught or notified, entire administrative, legal machinery come to standstill in protest. The brown sahibs hold the state to hostage and it has been almost impossible for any regime to challenge it or reform it. The adamance of native brown sahibs can be seen in revenue department which still believes in sucking common man’s blood for reasons best known to them. The revenue department justifies all sorts of taxation rather tax terrorism despite best efforts to bring in reforms by Elected representatives.
The lust for name, money, power & position takes some of them to the door of Political Parties, some gets into rights activism, some starts writing revelations & fancy books on Accidental Minister, Middle Class, Poverty, Human Suffering and also commenting on Poverty, Political System etc post retirement. Time has come to show mirror to & put in place these insensitive native rulers by bringing in administrative reforms.
