I saw the postings on my latest transfer today only
I am accustomed to lightning transfers.
Transfers cannot affect my morale.
I am in a parking lot now, like the way I was parked in Tamil Nadu
Industrial Investment Corporation Limited for a while.
The Government would call me again to do some difficult assignment.
But the resolve is firm - will work straight only. No role for corruption or
deviations from public interest.
I am enjoying my present postings which has no target (small savings
15 minutes every alternate day is the job content.
I am seriously learning high definition video editing.
Intend to commence a write up on my experience in each posting. It would
make an interesting story for youngsters.
The moral of the story is that when the Government gives a heavy assignment,
enjoy doing it. And when it chooses to provide an assignment which has no
job content or very less job content, learn to enjoy it too. Sort of a paid
holiday after a hectic assignment.
I am enjoying my present posting.
C.Umashankar IAS., (TamilNadu Cadre)
Commissioner of Small Savings
Mankind deserves open standards and open source software. Only the chosen

Jan. 25: Senior IAS officer C. Uma Shankar has set a record of sorts. His
transfer last Friday to the Small Savings department from the post of
Managing Director of Arasu Cable TV Corporation was the fourth in just six
Said to be an efficient, tech-savvy officer and known for his role in
developing and promoting e-governance, he has been credited with the
introduction of open source software during his brief stint in ELCOT
(Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu Limited).
His transfer order came a day after the officer told the media in Vellore
that it would be better for the State to take over the Sumangali Cable
Vision (SCV). The officer was also critical of the damage caused allegedly
by the SCV to the Arasu Cable TV infrastructure in some parts of the state.
Earlier, Mr Uma Shankar was said to have been transferred from ELCOT after
he found fault with an errant IT firm that was run by a person with
The officer also incurred the wrath of colleagues for publicly voicing his
views against the alleged discrimination of Dalits. The story of bureaucrat
turned politician Sivakami is no different. Never in the good books of the
government for long, she was constantly transferred and posted to

It is not good for the government if it punishes the sincere officers who
devote their time for the welfare of the state.It will definitely encourage
corruption ,fraud and maladministration .Govt.must set a good example.
