Professional Administrators

The running of the State is the most complex of tasks.

It is much more complicated than landing a rover on the moon or robotic surgery.

The main reason is that because the State  must not only look after the interests of its people, but also ensure the protection of Nature and all beings in the world.

Currently our FUKUS model of “development” has placed GDP growth as the sole indicator of economic well being.

This fraud must be stopped.

The model of development must shift from GDP to SEVA (Selfless Service), which is the highest ideal of Dharma.

The model of development should shift to True Development.

For this to occur, our current fraud FUKUS inspired method of Administration must be changed.

Administrators should abandon “Trickle Down Economics” which only benefits Wall Street/Dalal Street/Lala Pimps.

Instead they must focus on Rising Tide Production by the Masses Socialist Capitalism.

Some “coconuts” call Kautilya the most cunning of men.

But in his Arthshastra, Kautilya said:

In the happiness of his subjects lies the King’s happiness, in their welfare his welfare.

He shall not consider as good only that which pleases him but treat as beneficial to him whatever pleases his subjects.

The highest goal of the Arthasastra is SEVA to the old – the highest ideal of Dharma.

सुखस्य मूलं धर्मः । धर्मस्य मूलं अर्थः । अर्थस्य मूलं राज्यं । राज्यस्य मूलं इन्द्रिय जयः । इन्द्रियाजयस्य मूलं विनयः । विनयस्य मूलं वृद्धोपसेवा॥

The root of happiness and well being  is Dharma
The root of Dharma is Artha (economy and statecraft)
The root of Artha is good governance.
The root of good governance is conquering by self control.
The root of conquering by self control is humility.
The root of humility is SEVA (selfless service) to the old.

Kautilya was first a great teacher, even before he became the world’s greatest philosopher and economist.

In fact he identified Chandragupta Maurya as a child itself and saw his potential that Chandragupta could be developed to become a great emperor.

Hence to develop the Chandragupta’s of today, we first need teachers like Kautilya.

Teachers who like Kautilya and Rishi Haridrumata Gautama, identify students not on who their parents are, but on what they know and what they do.

They should be able to identify the Satyakamas and Chandraguptas, who though they came from busy women and Shudra parents, went on to become the greatest of men.

We need schools to accommodate such teachers like Kautilya and give them full support to develop the Chandragupta’s of tomorrow.

Schools should be run by such teachers who groom potential leaders of tomorrow.

We already have the Sainik School’s that directs students to the Army.

Similarly we should set up should Rastra Vidyalayas (State Schools) that directs students to the administration of the State.

The students in these schools should first be given a True Education.

More than any technical studies, they should first be thoroughly inculcated to develop thinking and action with good Gunas (Character, virtues) and Karma (conduct).

They must spend at least 15 years of their educational life getting practical lessons in Dharma and its highest ideal SEVA as the prime and utmost important principle to the establishment and running of the State.

Only after the 10th Standard should they be allowed to branch out to serious study of the specific branches of the state that they wish to serve.

Currently any monkey off the street can write an exam and qualify to become an administrator.

It does not matter if they have the right Gunas (character, virtues), all that matters is that they passed the exam.

That is why we have such a corrupt and callous administration today.

Where people are treated as mere toys and pawns to be used by the Administrators to pander to the whims and fancies of the power brokers of the “wonder” of the FUKUS systems – The Representative DFIs and the Wall Street/Dalal Street/ Lala/Pimps.

We should not have generalist administrators like we have in today’s Bharat.

Where a person who has a background in botany, will be given charge of the Water Resources Department.

Or even worse, a person with a background in Civil Engineering, will be given charge of Medicine, Healthcare, Social Services and Social Rehabilitation.

A professional administrator who runs the department must not only have an education, but also real world expertise in the domain of the department.
