Gossip: Expecting more respectful ‘Pranamas’ from junior IAS officers?

With the re-appointment of Raghavendra Singh, a retired 1983 batch IAS officer, as Union Culture Secretary on a contract basis, the entire batch is reportedly enthused and expects more respect during the morning and evening walks. Junior batches too find it something insightful for better career prospects ahead.  

After the retirement of the last serving IAS officer from the batch, a few months ago, a problem of access to the Delhi Darbar was beginning to emerge but the lastest development has sparked-off rays of hope. Officers in junior batches too have started whispering, though in a lighter vein, that they should start extending more respectful ‘Pranams’ to the retired IAS officers during their morning and evening walks.

Who knows the outgoing DOPT Secretary Dr. C Chandramouli (IAS:1985:TN), retiring this week, would have to welcome and hand over the baton to a retired IAS officer from either of the senior batches.

US political scientist calls Pakistani NSA "Chhipkili da jhan*"

By Mukul Shukla 17 Sep 2020

Who is Moeed Yusuf who works in the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan's office as an assistant and deals with the National Security Division and Strategic Policy Planning? He is a US citizen who, as a Pakistani, manipulated the US system so very well that once he was made also the associate vice president of the Asia Center at the United States Institute of Peace, where he was paid US tax money and allegedly spied for the Pakistani Army.
He is "Chhipkili da jhant" is how Dr. Carol Christine Fair, a South Asia expert and distinguished Professor at Georgetown University, described him after his debut online SCO meeting where he, in his typical yuppie wisdom displayed a map of Pakistan in the background showing some parts of North India as disputed territory while trying to access India's NSA Ajit Doval and engage him in talks. Dr. Fair who writes like an angel and curses like a North Indian is also proficient in Hindi, Urdu, and Punjabi languages, besides being an authority on the Pakistani Army.
Dr. Fair is a persona non grata in Pakistan.
In a tweet, she supported NSA Ajit Doval's walkout from the SCO meeting with creepy Yusuf.
