Probably Character and Integrity of Committee and it’s Members is Reflected in Decisions Made by It

Every one probably learns from the very childhood that actions speak louder than words and man is known by the company he keeps. The decisions, made by a committee, in context of previous sentence, should represent the character and integrity of the members of the committee. The two decisions made by a committee are provided here under, which will clearly let anyone understand that, what the main criterion behind such decision was. The Committee that took this decision is as detailed ahead:

The search-cum-selection committee was headed by HRD Minister Mr. Kapil Sibal and consists of chairpersons of UGC; AICTE; Mr. Shiv Nadar, chairperson of IIT Kharagpur, and Mr. Kris Gopalakrishnan of Infosys as members

(1)Choices of panel headed by Kapil Sibbal for Selecting Directors of IITs have already caused an embarrassment to ministry when the panel selected AK Bhowmick, for heading IIT Patna, as his name was not cleared by vigilance cell due to him being indicted by the CBI in the coal net scam.

(2)This time also, this panel has selected PP Chakrabarti as its first choice for heading the IIT Kharagpur. It’s known to all that CBI had recommended penalty against him in the coal net scam and even the CAG had pointed out gross violations. Probably it will be another embarrassment for HRD Ministry, if his name is not cleared again by vigilance.

Now you can decide on character and integrity of the committee members, as I have nothing to say further.

When the draupadi was being insulted in the court of Kurus, she naturally turned to elder statesman Bhishma, asking that whether the henious act being perpetrated by Duryodhana and Duhshasana was in accordance with dharma.

Bhisma’s reply was evasive..

“..the course of morality is subtle. Even the illustrious wise in this world fail to understand it always. What in this world a strong man calls morality is regarded as such by others, however otherwise it may really be; but what a weak man calls morality is scarcely regarded as such even if it be the highest morality. From the importance of issue involved, from its intricacy and subtitlity, I am unable to answer with certitude the question thou hast asked…”

A Short Case for Domain of Knowledge Administration Governance & HR Issues in Public Funded Academic Orgs Human Resource, Capacity Building and Ethics being practiced in Public Funded Academic Organizations

An Institution Blessed with All Possible Powers by Destiny – for – Humble Objective of turning Society in to a Value Based, Principled, Ethical besides Providing Knowledge and Skills to Them for Sustaining their Life and be a Law Abiding Citizens.


CASE: Human Resource, Capacity Building and Ethics being Practiced in Public Funded Academic Organizations of Repute : Perhaps Grooming place of Corrupt and Un Ethical Acts: None other Institution alone can Exercise the  vast amount of  Energy required to turn, whole of Working Population, of Any Nation in totality and all alone, on Unrighteous Path.

An individual faculty member of an esteemed academic institution has come to know by discovering some relevant information that a lot of unwanted activities are being executed in the institution she/he serves, and in process she/he was also made to suffer in manner significantly damaging the career of individual. If the same information is disclosed to executives, media or public, the situation may turn more damaging to the individual faculty member itself. The same may happen due to possibility that may be resultant of concerned individuals with the issue may deliberately force the administration by providing it with maligned or forged information, which may make administration believe and consequently  take it as a case of deliberate attempt to malign the image of the Institution. Certainly the act may manifest in causing some dent to image of Institution, but if the problem resolved, will save the institution from a certain death in near future, as the same concerns the important and vital component of the end product delivered by the organization. The success of the organization in future will be ensured by the same and that too, in an accelerated manner, due turning capable of delivering quality education and skill development, as per expectations of society. Till date the same faculty member has silently brought the same to the notice of concerned authorities but they have tuned deaf. Despite of having been asked by a prudent top executive of the Institution to clearly put the issue, so that same is resolved, the faculty member concerned has never initiated the issue, thinking that any transition may result in sufferings of its most vital stakeholders who happen to be the students. Thus, even without any application of external force (certainly the internal threats keep continuously being issued to cause a nervous breakdown) such act is being voluntarily adopted by her/him with a good intension of letting the organization achieve its task, even if it means, some material suffering to her/him in form of low wages getting paid to her/ him. The people, who happen to be in executive duty, despite of being aware, are not trying to correct the situation by themselves. If the same gets initiated by executives themselves, then the situation can be improved in an efficient manner and that too without creating any explosive or damaging situation. The situation is that nobody is attempting to act on the issue and is giving an impression to top executives of the Institution as everything very normal, maintained and routine.

1. Assuming that you happen to be the individual concerned, comment on situation as initiatives that you would like to initiate to control such issue.

2. Assuming that you happen to be the concerned executive, comment on situation as initiatives that you would like to initiate to control such issue.
