Only Seshan Can Say Thus!!! - *No one escapes T. N. Seshan

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Politicians are bad, bureaucrats are spineless and 
partial, history taught in schools is rubbish, 
 businessmen fuel corruption in politics, public sector 
is tragic, journalists are the worst of the lot, 
"sold for a bottle of whisky;" and The Judiciary, "I'm not allowed to speak."

Thus spoke the Chief Election Commissioner in a thundering two – hour sermon to the students of the Institute of Management Technology (IMT) at Ghaziabad on Wednesday. Mr. Seshan was invited by the students to speak on the role of business houses in elections. 

Mr. Seshan reiterated his views on his erstwhile colleagues of theIndian Administrative Service (IAS) but singled out those  from UP and  Bihar.  

"They have no moral fibre; from the Chief Secretary down to the Patwari in the village, no one is impartial," he said."Their backbone is comprehensively broken; and nowhere is it as comprehensively broken as in  UP and Bihar."

The former civil servant went on to conclude that brains were not required to enter the privileged service. He then recalled that he scored 190 marks out of 200 in history, more than his score in physics, to qualify for the IAS. Mr. Seshan took pains to elaborate his bio - data after the hosts declared that the man needed no introduction. He has two birthdays: May 15 and December 15, one of them being the "official birthday".

He wrote his school - leaving exam and the intermediate exam twice the first time the papers had leaked in 1947).  (MAY BE IN BETWEEN DOB GOT CHANGED)

Mr. Seshan recalled his stint at the Planning Commission. The government  had earlier found him "unsuitable" for the post of Cabinet Secretary, so he went to the Planning Commission — as OSD, which meant  "Officer in Search of Duty". He felt that  "In Mr. Hegde's 11, I was the 12th man."

Once in the Planning Commissionhe returned his office clock as nothing began on time; a week later, he returned his office calendar as no meeting was held on schedule.

After the self - introduction, the Chief Election Commissioner revealed the historian within him, and urged the aspiring managers to be proud for being an Indian. He narrated the wonders of the ancient Indian civilisation.

"India was a great country long before others stopped living in caves. You belong to easily the most unsurpassable culture ... but what passes as history in text books is rubbish."

The medieval history of India didn't have a profound impact on him. "After 650 AD, Indian history reads like Santa Barbara."

The contemporary Indian society is a sad story for Mr. Seshan. What is not corrupt in this country? India's central vice is corruption; the centrality of corruption is election corruption; and the centrality of election corruption is the business houses.

He said that a lady had told him that she spent Rs. 55 lakh for an election in Delhi for a constituency of 50,000 voters.  "But she was defeated, she came and told me the winner had spent even more."
Another tragedy for the nation, Mr. Seshan declared, was the public sector. "Indian public sector was the greatest management calamity to hit any country ever.

"The only bigger calamity Mr.Seshan could think of was the Indian Press. "The journalists are sold for a   bottle of whisky."

When a student said that it was the same press which had told the world about his greatness, Mr. Seshan said,"If my chastity is being proclaimed by prostitutes, I don't want such chastity."

  1. Dear Readers,

    As an ex serviceman and Indian citizen I observed that India is only country for not looking after their own Armed Forces Personnel/Disabled community welfare. I also observed that all political parties are betraying the Ex Servicemen community by the name of One Rank One Pension since Independence, it is a sin for our Nation that the Bureaucrat / IDAS/IAS Lobby/Mafia/Dogs are playing in between for how much less welfare can be provided to Indian Armed Forces Personnel/Families/Disabled Community hence I believe that in India our main enemy is Bureaucrat/IDAS/IAS Dogs only and not a Pakistan/China/Any other Terrorist Groups if we compare then we felt that Bureaucrat/IDAS/IAS Dogs will come above the Pakistan/China/Terrorist Group . I request every citizen other than Bureaucrats to kill these bastard Bureaucrats one by one other wise one day India will ruined in a such manner we could not predict also do not believe these bastard politicians in future. I also understood that neither One Rank One Pension will be implemented nor any welfare measure to Below Officer Ranks of Indian Armed Forces/Common People/Poor people will be implemented by any Government .. If I am right reply please

  2. In India is not a Chief Secretary it should be renamed as Cheap Secretary
