PREFACE
The Hong Kong-based Political & Economic Risk Consultancy
(PERC)
in a 12-pagereport on
a
business survey of 12 economies of Asia released on June 3, 2009 where1,274 expatriates working in these countries were interviewed showed Indianbureaucracy at the bottom at the 12 position as the least efficient bureaucracy afterPhilippines and Indonesia in 10 and 11 positions respectively. The report says thatworking with the country’s civil servants in India is a “slow and painful” process and itcontinues to report that “They are a power centre in their own right at both the nationaland state levels, and are extremely resistant to reform that affects them or the way they goabout their duties”. This content is also the theme of this volume, “Inside India”.The cause of the malady is analysed and remedies are suggested in the article, ‘TheCrumbling Steelframe of Inda’ of this volume. The deterioration is a post-independencephenomenon. The once steelframe of Indian bureaucracy of the British vintage graduallycrumbled to its extant putridity under the sad auspice of its corrupt and incompetent

, the UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) and the deterioration trickled fastdownwards in the last six decades to bring India to this sad state of affairs. “Inside India”is the story of this fast rottening situation.The story in “Inside India” is by an insider, insider in India as wll as in Indianbureaucracy for more than thirty-one years at a senior position. This volume is a firsthand account of the observations, impressions and experiences of the author as an insider.
 
3Naturally, most illustrations in this volume are from Karnataka police where the authorserved as a senior police officer for nearly three decades. However, this makes nodifference to the over all picture of India as situation is not much different elsewhere.In spite of well-known notorieties of the degenerates like A.R.Nizamuddin,R.S.Chopra and other scoundrels of the similar ilk in Karnataka police, situation is betterthere than some of the more notorious state police organizations of India. Their coreweakness there lies in sweepingly conforming to the rotten system and bad cultureagainst conscience to cover own tracks. It is mere cowardice of mediocrity and grossselfish 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 thisdirection. Complacency leads to stagnation and is a dangerous indulgence in a rotteningsituation like India’s. This volume is intended to breach the vicious indulgence involvedand inspire India to its rich potentialities on the way to much dreamed of worldleadership.India is a civilization of diversities and a culture of contradictions. India’s is aninclusive way of life. Along its long history, it saw umpteen falls and rises without losingits innate vitality and always rose from worst quagmires unscathed. This resilience of India underscores its unique heritage spawned by its thoughts and philosophies thatperhaps are nearest to the true nature of the universe that the scientific world of today is
