Patel’s advice is motivating and powerful, which can help you in a great way to gain confidence and attain the exams successfully. He told elegantly that our predecessors remained away from common people. They followed a tradition of keeping themselves away. As an IAS officer, it is your duty to treat all individuals in India equally. There should not be any discrimination in terms of caste, creed or language.

After the speech, there have been several successes in India and growth of India is mainly due to the commitment, competence and passion of the civil servants.  Here sharing certain guiding principles which will remain as a foundation for people working in the field of civil services in India. It is important to make sure that these guiding principles do not get dried up or forgotten in the future date. The salient principles are impartiality, efficiency, empathy and incorruptibility.

Mahatma Gandhi has advised on empathy and it can be applied to oneself in a scenario of the deprived of the underprivileged in the country. You can see how that particular programme and policy will influence her or him. It is a timeless lesson which remains as an important thinking instrument since civil servants should know the difference between the pros and cons before taking any decisions. They should know what is right and what is wrong before applying the decision. The decision should not be taken for the sake of their personal use.

Efficiency is the second important principle. It is very often we keep saying about the poor execution of good policies. Time and cost would retard the development of nation. It is important for civil servants to remain strong in their actions and thoughts. They should access latest knowledge and information and apply them for enhancing service delivery. Several civil servants in the country have taken efforts to make excellent innovations. They even have changed sleepy institutions into grand center place of important activity.

As the living and work environments change, it is important for the civil servants to completely make use

of each and every chance to prove their working methods. Their main aim should be to accomplish the ultimate motto of enhancing every Indian’s quality of life. It is mainly for people who were not given importance or served adequately. The main key to the change is innovation.

It is necessary to focus on the inherent strengths of our society in order to build synergies. The quality of life can be enhanced by building partnerships with the private sector and civil society. It helps the place to get developed and improved in all terms, thus enhances the quality of service and quality of life. Narendra Modi who is India’s Prime Minister has given a strong statement that inspires each and every civil servants and also normal individuals. His popular statement is reform, perform and also transform. It is the most inspirational tag that helps a person to reach new heights in terms of transformational leadership and efficiency.

The third and fourth important principles are incorruptibility and impartiality. It is also mentioned in Sardar Patel’s speech. He has advised maintaining the extreme incorruptibility and impartiality of administration.
One of the most important forces of Indian administration is the civil services. It helps in bridging several gaps that India has. The speech of Sardar Patel remains relevant till date. He has cautioned that a civil servant should not, must not and take participation in politics. He also added that they should not even involve themselves in communal fights and wrangles. If the person does not respect these principles, he has to lower his dignity and it means he is degrading public service.

A famous quote on unity by Sardar Patel written in Gray Background with the strong quotes about Civil Services Day
As a civil service administrator, the person should be committed and passionate regarding service. He should not show passion regarding the person’s profile or their level of serving. He is responsible to treat and serve all people without any prejudice or bias. He has to especially concentrate on people who have been remained back for the growth and development process. He advised to follow antyodaya principle and take it as a guiding principle.

Incorruptibility is the last principle which every civil servant should be aware of. The civil service professionals have high responsibility to show impeccable integrity. It is well known that corruption could completely change the country and status of people too. The civil servants should ensure to abide by the rules and do not follow any wrong measures that can affect the entire country. It can even create a wrong impression amidst the common woman and man. They are almost like steel frame. It should not be rusted or even slightly bent. If it happens, it loses its importance, value, and respect in the midst of public.

He added that he is happy to see civil servants who are working on a mission to change Swarajya to Surajya and make the best to do construct a harmonious, innovative and prosperous India.

The civil services examination is an important examination that decides the future trendsetters of nation. They need to obey and abide by all rights and duties in order to show respect to their position. As they are given a more respectful and honorable position in the country, they should not misuse any opportunity. They should ensure to give their full efforts and satisfy the public.

How These Women Doctors Revolutionized Indian medicine?

A collage of four women doctors who revolutionised Indian medicine
















The medical industry in India has witnessed tremendous developments and growths. In the ancient days when there was less development in the medical world, people believed in doctors similar to that of God. Doctor profession was also male-dominated, and in spite of it, some successful female doctors contributed to the medical industry. Their contribution revolutionised Indian medicine. Technology plays a significant role in today's medical industry. The latest technology has improved the diagnosis procedure and treatments methods.

Diagnostic centres play a crucial role in revolutionising Indian medicine. They offer quality medical service to the people. Highly qualified and experienced Radiologists, microbiologists, pathologists, biochemists and several other technicians. Some of the diagnostic facilities offered in the lab are Ultrasound scan, MRI, X-ray, CT scan, mammogram etc. The diagnostic centre makes use of state of the art equipment so that you can trust them for the diagnosis reports offered.

The following article talks about some of the famous woman doctors who worked hard for the development and growth of Indian medicine.

A sketched image of Dr. Kadambani Ganguly, with her left hand on her face.
Kadambani Ganguly was born in an ordinary family during the British rule, and she completed her graduation in 1886. It was the period where there was less preference given to women to continue their studies. With firm determination and willpower, she continued with her studies. She was the second female Indian who qualified as a doctor to continue her studies in western medicine. In India, there were no woman doctors during those years, and Kadmabani travelled all the way to the UK to complete her higher studies in medicine. She completed LRCP, LRCS and GFPS medical degrees and returned to India. She started her career as a Doctor in India at Lady Dufferin Hospital, Kolkata. Later she started private practice so that she can serve the needy. Her contribution and dedication to the medical field served as a real inspiration for several women in the country.

Diagnostic centres help doctors to identify the actual cause of a health condition. They offer diagnostic results with high accuracy which allows doctors to identify health issues and recommend the right treatment procedures properly. Without proper diagnosis, treatments would go in vain.

How Electricity Has Become A Life Force


















Our Honourable Prime Minister Of India, Mr. Narendra Modi has brought in Electrical Revolution in our country by bringing out schemes. The government is implementing one of the most progressive schemes in that is the "Soubhagya" which is also known as the Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli HarGhar Yojana, which aims at the electrification of homes all over India by the year 2018. This scheme is meant to focus on poor people and bringing electricity to them, with a free electricity connection. Those who are above the poverty line only have to pay a small amount to 500 rupees which can be done in instalments to make it even easier for them. However, there are several questions concerning the feasibility of this scheme as it may not be possible to really know who can be classified as poor on the basis of the data from the census that has been taken in the year 2011.

A lot of people simply cannot imagine a life devoid of electricity, and it goes without saying that electricity is the reason why most of us are able to do our daily activities. In fact, our entire life literally runs on electricity whether it is something as simple as turning the lights on at night, or the air-conditioning on a hot day or a heater on a cold day. We are so dependent on electricity that we cannot do without it. Whether it is a mobile charger, a music system, a laptop or just the indoor lighting, we need electricity to run our lives. A kitchen usually has a lot of electrical equipment such as electric chimneys, ovens, mixers, blenders, and so on. Therefore it is necessary also to remember that electricity is something that we cannot do without whether it is for running a house, a hospital, a commercial establishment or a public utility (even something like street lights) — every sector in the economy, whether it is the primary, secondary or tertiary sector, from the medical to the entertainment industry to the hotel industry.

The Current Scenario In India

While nations across the world are looking for various alternative sources of electricity, such as nuclear power as an alternative to hydroelectric power, there are several challenges that have to be faced, especially in a country like India which is a developing country.  Recent estimates have shown that in a total of 25 crore houses, 4 crore households haven't yet been electrified. This shows a rather dismal scene, and hence the government has been doing its best to ensure that it makes electricity accessible to all.

Electricity has been a significant issue for several states in India. The soubhagya scheme is estimated to have a total outlay of around 16320 crore rupees, and the central government is mostly in charge of this. Most, unfortunately, there has been no undertaking of any new power project, and many states in India are short of power. It is, therefore, necessary that the states of India become increasingly self-reliant. Another factor that is causing a huge impact is the increase in the demand for power. The entire economy runs on power. Whether it is the agricultural sector, or the industrial sector or the services sector, electricity is exceptionally vital for it to run. There is no doubt that the National Power Grid Corporation has a very crucial role to play here. Transmission of electricity from one place to another is not easy as it requires a tremendous amount of electricity being lost over the course of transmitting it from one location to another. There have been several cases of thermal power stations being forced to shut down because the cost of the resources are extremely high and therefore unviable in the long term.

To counter this alarming situation, it is better to opt for alternative sources of energy, especially from renewable sources. While non-renewable sources of energy such as petrol, coal, gas or oil can run out in the not so distant future, therefore it is better to look for renewable energy sources such as wind energy, solar energy, tidal energy and so on. Another significant benefit of renewable energy is that it is entirely pollution free, and this is a considerable factor that decides how far we will be able to use it in the future. Some state governments are taking the initiative for it, and hence it gives us hope that renewable energy sources are a better long-term option. A classic example of this is the Cochin international airport which has been running entirely on solar energy since 2015. Hence it should be noted that renewable sources of power are something that needs be looked at seriously for the future.

All said and done, and there is no doubt that electricity is a vital part of our life from something as
critical as ICU units where many medical apparatuses such as life support, dialysis machines and other critical medical procedures need electricity to function. The same goes for all other sectors of the economy, such as railway networks and engines, public utilities, banking and finance, hospitality and management, industries and manufacturing as well as the basic human needs such as heating and lighting, as well as entertainment like the TV and other devices all of which need electricity to run. Whether it is something as essential as a street light, or a home alarm system or something like communication and technology, it is virtually impossible to live without electricity. We depend on it for almost all our needs. All commercial establishments need computers and technology and the internet, and this is not possible without having electricity. Now in the age of mobile phones, even something basic like charging a phone will require power. The same can be said about every area and every sector in the economy. While people have completely become dependent on technology, the sum and substances of these changes are that we need electricity to survive. However, power can also be got through from renewable energy sources such as sunlight which can easily be channelled to ensure that it fulfils all the basic needs as can be seen in the case of the Cochin International Airports.
