PM Modi's address:
A life which is full of tension cannot be productive specially if you have to run the nation.
If you wither, then how will the nation blossom?
Is your life restricted to a page in file?
On Civil Services Day, I want you to think that despite being at home you are not really present there thinking of files and other work related matters.
You must manage time well but do you spend quality time with your family?
Has your life turned robotic? If so, then it will have an affect the government.
We will not be able to serve people until the ''insaan'' (human) within us remains alive.
I take the lesson of “Sheelam Param Bhushanam” (character is the highest virtue) with me wherever I go.
The need of the hour today is socio-economic integration.
I would like to congratulate all the winners of the awards today.
The 'ART' of good governance is A- Accountability, R-Responsibility and T-Transparency.
We need to give priority to perfection and capacity building.
