However, Ghose’s book would largely disappoint readers on that specific count. For the most part, it is a compilation of Ghose’s experiences as an IAS officer between the mid-1960s and the mid-1990s. Ghose bares his heart by sharing his fears and mistakes as an IAS officer. The book is full of interesting incidents and anecdotes.

Bhaskar Ghose IAS The Service of the State Book Civil Services India Business of Life Workplace. The Service of the State-The IAS Reconsidered: By Bhaskar Ghose, Viking/Penguin, 306 pages, ₹ 499. Writer, columnist and theatre person Bhaskar Ghose, an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer, retired after 36 years in the bureaucracy.

Is the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) still the most appropriate institution to govern twenty-first-century India? Should a cadre of generalists head organizations as complex and diverse as industrial units, museums and rural development boards? If it had to be replaced, what is the best alternative? Drawing on his experience of thirty-six years in the IAS, Bhaskar Ghose addresses these and other major questions regarding the role, relevance and effectiveness of India s long-established but often controversial system of state administration in The Service of the State. Ghose argues forcefully that the IAS is still the best option and one moreover that substantially fulfils its functions and fulfils them well. Though its once sterling reputation has been tarnished by allegations of corruption, political subservience and declining standards of efficiency, there are still sufficient numbers of dedicated public servants. These administrators, spanning diverse social backgrounds, seniorities and regional profiles, draw on established traditions of duty and of cooperation within the service to deliver to the best of their ability and often in the face of considerable odds the goods of development. This reflective and luminous memoir is not only a portrait of a lifetime s service to the state; it is also a timely and persuasive argument for a system of governance that has had a critical impact on India since Independence. A timely discussion of a civil servant s proper role and function in the light of current controversies about bureaucratic corruption. A timely look at the Indian Administrative Service when many are questioning its functions and its integrity.
