Dream Journey - Reminiscences of an IAS Officer
The act of attempting to write a book, even while it is unpremeditated, stems from my instinctive desire to narrate the incidents of my life that may induce the reader’s curiosity to know the kind of efforts one makes, challenges one faces, hurdles one crosses in achieving one’s cherished goal, and once the ‘dream come true’, the kind of trajectory that follows.
As one embarks upon the journey traced in the book, one may find hard work, destiny, chance at play, contributing their share to make it an eventful, satisfying and a fulfilling feat.
May be the narrative is found to be a wholesome package, encompassing major facets of life: accomplishments, human values, emotions, beliefs, ideas, thoughts and much more!
The book may interest those who aspire to join the civil service, who are part of the civil service, and who want to have some glimpses of the ringside view of the administration, as presented by an insider (unpretentious).
About the Author: Sarban Singh is an IAS officer of the 1983 batch, Haryana Cadre. He was working as Additional Chief Secretary, Haryana (in the Apex scale), when, a couple of months before his superannuation, he took voluntary retirement to join the Haryana Right to Service Commission, of which he held the charge of Chief Commissioner by the time he completed his five years tenure.
Before joining IAS, he served in the Indian Economic Service.
Having been to a dozen countries, his one year stay in the U.K. earned him M.Phil. in Economic Planning from the University of Glasgow.
Surely, the storyteller will take the reader along at every step of the fascinating journey of more than four decades of a boy, for whom dreams are made to happen in real-time and precede the actual world.
