The Civil Services Day on 21 st April is an annual ritual celebrated year-after-year. For the past two years, it is a two-day extravaganza, not one as before. I attended the first Civil Services Day on April 21, 2006. Attendance was compulsory. Usual rhetorics, sermons by dignitaries. All very de-motivating, uninspiring. Sheer waste of public time, public money with no value addition to  attitudinal change in “rededicating themselves to the cause of citizens and renew their commitment to public service and excellence in work “. 5-star coffee/ tea and lunches  are the star attractions. Junior bureaucrats rushing to shake hands with the high and mighty, falling over each other to have favourite picks in lunch.

The 2007 event was a repeat of 2006. Come 2017, awards to  500 civil servants  against 100 last year. Considered a “quantum leap “. What were the short listing criteria? Who were members of the Jury? How were selections made? Was it based on pick-and-choose, arbitrary and  discretionary considerations? The anguish expressed by other Services, is justified.  Selection of theme, manipulated to highlight achievements of single Service .

DOP&T ,PG & AR will have much to explain. Let it upload details of total expenditure on mega event including to-and fro travel expenses, officers’ absence from public duty . Time to introspect. Mollycoddling of civil servants should be strictly no- no. Let civil servants celebrate the Day by observing punctuality and work harder.

Things i have seen in terms of personal computer memory is that there are specific features such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must go with the technical specs of the mother board. If the computer's motherboard is reasonably current while there are no operating system issues, upgrading the memory space literally will take under 1 hour. It's among the list of easiest personal computer upgrade types of procedures one can visualize. Thanks for discussing your ideas.

One other thing I would like to say is the fact that newer laptop operating systems are likely to allow far more memory to get used, but they in addition demand more ram simply to operate. If your computer is unable to handle extra memory as well as newest program requires that ram increase, it could be the time to shop for a new Personal computer. Thanks

Thanks for the guidelines you have provided here. Another thing I would like to talk about is that pc memory specifications generally go up along with other improvements in the technological innovation. For instance, any time new generations of cpus are introduced to the market, there's usually a corresponding increase in the scale preferences of both laptop or computer memory and hard drive room. This is because the software operated by way of these processor chips will inevitably increase in power to benefit from the new technologies.
