The book deals primarily with the issue of administrative corruption in the IAS, the premier civil service of India, and also in the Indian society, of which the IAS is an integral component. It is the result of a thorough survey and in-depth interviews of serving IAS officers of the Karnataka cadre.
The book is an effort by the author to unearth the causes of the systemic affliction and find out its roots, which might originate in the nation’s culture and its constituents, namely, religion, traditions and history.
