Need for clean administration.


English:  It is the window to knowledge and the West...Without knowing English, our children will be good only to pull bullock-carts......... Justice Markendeya Katju.

There is no enemy outside of your soul. The real enemies live inside you and they are anger, pride, greed, attachment and hate.  …………………   Lord Mahaveera. 

COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS: Meet together, speak together, let your minds be of one accord, as the gods of old, being of one mind, accepted their share of the sacrifice....Let your aims be common and your hearts of one accord, and all of you be of one mind, so you may live well together.           Rig Veda   
The totality of beliefs and sentiments common to the average members of a society forms a determinate system with a life of its own. It can be termed the collective or creative consciousness.    Emile Durkheim. 

 Happy is the unity of the Sangha. Happy is the discipline of the united ones.        Dhammapada 194

There are several cases, where our Govt does not take any action even if the citizen’s life is at risk or when facing injustice owing to unfair practices, which is despite relevant authorities informed of the same. Our Govt does not care to view citizen’s welfare, herein said particularly of seafarers. All relevant Authorities of national governance need to be committed and responsible to the genuine needs of help to their national citizen.  For e.g. in the Indian real estate sector. The rules are so free and loose that anyone can fool the public.  People make money and get away, this has been brought to Govt notice now and then but they have done nothing about it, harming innocent people. Hence, is the Govt not indulging in criminal practice? After the Govt approves the projects and if the party does not comply with rules and guidelines, should the Govt not punish those who are not eligible to run such business but rather they sit negligent in spite of complaining. So, one wonders why at all they should exist? There are so many educated citizens who want to flee the country because of the casual attitude of the Govt. Government cannot just be run with money, but for good Policies and Practices, meeting to the times.  hey need to adopt a uniform code of professional ethics. Though, one can hold the government- employees by online complaint to ministry of public grievance and redressal department Or visit to and register your complaint in 4000 words, in English. This is though the bound action to hold the government servant and punish by departmental enquiry. SAME ALSO DOESN’T WORK.                                                                                                                                       In continuance, to my reference to the functioning of Public- libraries, in March 2012 Issue, not a single response from authorities concerned, but for neglecting the submission of valued suggestions in the common-interest of the readers. Readers, using the libraries are very much aware that a Public library is a library that is accessible by the general public, funded from public sources (such as tax money) and managed by civil-servants , trusted Bureaucrats, for commitment and responsibility towards public services administration, though they are directly governed by a Library- Committee, supposedly to serve the public’s general-interest; hence expected to be fair and just, open to transparency more particularly after RTI 2005 Act. Public libraries exist in many countries across the world and are often considered ‘an essential part of having an educated and literate population’. Public libraries are distinct from Research/School /College libraries,  and other special libraries, which is to serve the general public's information needs (rather than the needs of a particular school, institution, or research population). Dis-interested staff who wanted to while-away the time, cannot make the services good to the public. Service-oriented personnel manned with good policies and procedures make "The Public-Library, an excellent model of the ruling government, at its best. Public libraries provide reference and research support help as well to the general public, at a reference desk.  As online discussion and social networking allows remote access, reference is becoming available virtually through the use of the Internet and e-mail. Depending on the size of the library, optimal space utilisation and resources, there may be more than one desk; at some smaller libraries all transactions may occur at one desk, while large urban public libraries may employ subject-specialist librarians with the ability to staff multiple reference or information desks to answer queries about particular topics at any time during regular operating hours

 As more commercial and governmental services are being provided online (e-commerce and e-government), public libraries increasingly need to provide Internet access for users, who otherwise would not be able to connect to these services. This role of libraries as part of "access to information"[6] and "equity of access “library  profession's ethical commitment that "no one should be denied information because he or she cannot afford the cost of a book or periodical, have access to the internet or information in any of its various formats. Internationally, public libraries offer information and communication  technology (ICT) services, giving "access to information and knowledge" the "highest priority." While different countries have their own requirements, general services offered include free connection to the Internet, training in using the Internet, and relevant content in appropriate languages. In addition to typical public library financing, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and business fund services that assist public libraries in combating the digital divide.[10] An ever growing middle class, increased commercial activity, new radical ideas, massive population growth and higher literacy rates forged the public library into reforms that is expected today. Public libraries are common all over the world and not a new idea.  The ill-conceived Directorate of Public Libraries, TN, can now self-assess themselves, as to where they stand in the library services, considering  performance rating-efficiency, lacking basically an updated website with the  requisite network of its infra-structure with contacts, or else it is high time, government services wherever feasible are outsourced, for increased performance efficiency. Service-oriented personnel, with a will to work, be retained in the government for necessary services and those name-sake for employment/statistical reasons be chucked-off, under ‘no work no pay’ principle. Please interact to improvise the situation, in the interest of the citizen of india.
