Malice Towards None And Charity For All

Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Sanjiv Chaturvedi is a fine example of an officer who has malice towards none (including his tormentors) and charity for all. Following the best tradition of ancient Dharmic culture, he has donated the entire prize money of Rs 19.85 lakhs for treatment of cancer patients at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). Chaturvedi received the money as part of the Ramon Magsaysay award conferred on him for his “exemplary integrity, courage and tenacity in uncompromisingly exposing and painstakingly investigating corruption in public office and his resolute crafting of programme and system improvements to ensure that government honourably serves the people.” For his courage of integrity, Chaturvedi was removed in August 2014 from the post of Chief Vigilance Commissioner of the AIIMS for detecting corruption. Instead of shielding and protecting him, the then new Modi administration found it more convenient to shift him from his job. The 2002 batch IFS officer from the Haryana cadre currently serves as deputy secretary of the AIIMS without rancour against anyone.
