He is a familiar face in national seminars and TV networks in India as a Poetand thinker.The Hong Kong-based Political & Economic Risk Consultancy
in a 12-page report on
 businesssurvey of 12 economies of Asia released on June 3, 2009 where 1,274 expatriates working in these countrieswere interviewed showed Indian bureaucracy at the bottom at the 12 position as the least efficient bureaucracy after Philippines and Indonesia in 10 and 11 positions respectively. The report says that workingwith the country’s civil servants in India is a “slow and painful” process and it continues to report that “Theyare a power centre in their own right at both the national and state levels, and are extremely resistant toreform that affects them or the way they go about their duties”.The cause of the malady in reference to Indian Police is analysed and remedies are recommended in thearticle, ‘The Crumbling Steel frame of India’ of this volume. The deterioration is a post-independence phenomenon. The once steel frame of Indian bureaucracy of the British vintage gradually crumbled to itsextant putridity under the sad auspice of corrupt and incompetent UPSC (Union Public Service Commission)and the deterioration trickled fast downwards in the last six decades to bring India to this sad state of affairs.As far as Karnataka police is concerned, in spite of misdeeds of notorious scoundrels like R.S.Chopra,A.R.Nizamuddin and degenerates of the similar ilk in Karnataka police, situation is better there than some of the more notorious state police organizations of India. Their core weakness there lies in sweepinglyconforming to the rotten system and bad culture against conscience to cover own tracks. It is mere cowardiceof mediocrity and gross selfish interests of ignobility and nothing more. Yet, no way can Karnataka police becalled as an efficient, healthy and responsible bureaucratic setup yet.Faithful assessment must precede reconstruction. This volume is an effort in this direction. Complacencyleads to stagnation and is a dangerous indulgence in a rottening situation like India’s. This volume isintended to breach the vicious indulgence involved and inspire India to its rich potentialities on the way tomuch dreamed of world leadership.India is a civilization of diversities and a culture of contradictions. India’s is an inclusive way of life.Along its long history, it saw umpteen falls and rises without losing its innate vitality and always rose fromworst quagmires unscathed. This resilience of India underscores its unique heritage spawned by its thoughtsand philosophies that perhaps are nearest to the true nature of the universe that the scientific world of todayis engaged in to probe, discover and formulate as the Grand Unification Theory (GUT). This is the secret of the eternal strength of India.2
This resilience of India gives hope. The present fall is not forever. Time of revival shall come. India shallsee a better system replace the present corrupt and incompetent UPSC and a healthy administrative systemreplace the extant inefficient and rogue bureaucracy. This volume, “Indian Police” is a small attempt towardsthis beginning.Professional ideals of police are rooted in the terra firma of the rule of law, justice, order and the securityof the country and its citizens. Police organization is basically responsible to the constitution of the countryand the government constituted and the laws enacted in accordance with the constitution. Police lose itsrelevance to the country when its professional attitude goes against the cardinal ideals of the profession.It is India’s good fortune that its fabric of law and order has withstood the effects of growing complexityof the Indian society for so fragile is its policing. The fact that the police systems in a few neighboringcountries of Asia and Africa are worse cannot be a solace as the political, social and economical structures of those countries have different backgrounds and value systems from ours. India is a crucible wherein thedynamics and relevance of democracy in the third world are being experimented with.Crime, politics and the police are the three sides of the vicious triangle within which the future of democratic Indian and its free people are trapped. Although wealthy industrial and commercial houses forma fourth dimension, their techniques are as yet limited to manipulative strategies to gain a strangle hold over  political power by remote control. It is their wealth that fills the coffers of the troika and helps reduce thenormal life of free citizens to a welter of uncertainties and endless misery.The very nature of the functions of the police demands that it be insulated from the vagaries of the short-time rules of a democratic setup. Their responsibilities as enforcers of law warrant their allegianceexclusively to the rules and laws of the country; they are beholden to the judiciary as the investigatingauthority while their part as watchdogs of the country’s internal security raises them above political andleadership bickerings. Often, these aspects of the police are happily forgotten in India.Discipline, in the case of the police force, is both an advantage and a disadvantage. It is an advantage because, if discreetly employed, it can prevent undue interaction of the police with unwanted elements. It isdisadvantage because the police, with its trained response, may find it difficult to isolate itself from the behests of its political masters.Loyalty is of two kinds. One is pure and simple fidelity to the master. The other owes its allegiance tocertain ideals and principles. This implies allegiance to one’s duties, responsibilities, objectives, profession and the chosen path of life. This commitment raises their loyalty to the status of a mission. Theloyalty needed in a profession like that of the police is of elevated nature and it bestows the qualities of nobility and dignity on the organisation. It lifts the police above factional interests and gives them acosmopolitan vitality. The strength and the trust born out of this superior form of loyalty stand the policeforce in good stead in its hour of risk and crisis.3
