Interview Discussion: Think, Rethink and Perform; (TRP)- Day 12
Set 1: Ask these questions to yourself; contemplate and come out with a concrete answer (not to be discussed on this forum). Invest at least 30 minutes on this set of questions.

Set 2: Analyse the following issue:
Upon entering the civil services, an honest person is often left with two alternatives. On one hand, one can keep a tight vigil on all the happenings in the system and make sure that no corrupt or illegal practices are perpetrated by any individual. The idea is to cleanse the system and make it corruption free. On the other hand, one can maintain personal integrity while turning a blind eye towards everything else. Most of the civil servants start with the first option, get demotivated midway due to stubbornness of the system to change and finally reconcile themselves with the second alternative.
