First posting as District Collector

Hi guys,

It's been a really long time since I have expressed myself on this blog. I have recently been posted as District Collector and Magistrate, distt Shravasti. Shravasti is one of the most backward districts in UP. Physical and human infrastructure is majorly lacking. I feel really fortunate to get a district like Shravasti in my first posting as Collector because everywhere you see, there is so much opportunity to do something great and wonderful.

Just one experience I would like to recount. After joining Shravasti, I inspected a Block Resource Center of SSA where training of teachers was going on. As expected most teachers were absent. I took immediate action against the teachers. when I came out... People thre were shouting slogans... "ziladhikari Shravasti zindabad". I felt humbled to my core because these people have such low expectations from administration that even the most mundane thing I would do here would be huge for them.

I hope I am able to do some good work here. wish me luck guys!
Will keep sharing
