Vice President Naidu releases book 'The Mavericks of Mussoorie' by M Ramachandran
While releasing the book 'The Mavericks of Mussoorie' by M Ramachandran in New Delhi, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said that legislation should guarantee for providing service to people, stated a press release.

The Vice President said that the book provides an opportunity to acquaint the general reader more intimately with how the Indian Administrative Service or the bureaucracy functions. He further said that the book also captures the professional competence, commitment to duty and hard work exhibited by the author in improving governance. Civil servants do face complex challenges in implementing policies of the government, he added.

The Vice President said that the central services have to act innovatively to ensure that there is maximum governance and minimum government. He further said that it has been described as the 'Steel Frame' that holds the society together because it is supposed to be an objective implementer of the laws of the land. The higher civil services in the country have been one of the greatest contributors to nation building in the post-Independence India, he added.

"I am happy to launch 'The Mavericks of Mussoorie' written by Shri M Ramachandran. This is a memoir or a chronicle of the experiences of a civil servant, who rose from a humble beginning to become a senior bureaucrat of the rank of the Chief Secretary in a State and Secretary at the Centre," stated Naidu.

The book provides the personal accounts of the challenges faced by the author as a civil servant gives specific suggestions on how government needs to be improved in the larger interests of the common man.

According to the release, the book makes pointed references to where governance changes are required—something quite relevant in today's context when every effort is being made to make systems and procedures hassle-free for the common man.

It also captures the professional competence, commitment to duty and hard work exhibited by the author in improving governance.

"Memoirs of administrative leaders like Shri Ramachandran ji provide the younger civil servants a source of inspiration. This book will give all civil servants a feeling that they can achieve tangible results despite all the odds and formidable challenges," added Naidu.
