This book delves into the prevailing administrative crisis in Kerala, emphasizing the urgent need for an efficient and people-oriented public administration system. The author, possessing postgraduate qualifications in Philosophy with Psychology, Political Science, Political Sociology, an MBA from the University of Leeds, U.K., and a Ph.D. from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, draws on over 25 years of experience as a senior faculty member at the Institute of Management in Government, Thiruvananthapuram. Highlighting the mismanagement and neglect within the Kerala Administrative System, the author contends that political parties, elected representatives, and union leaders exploit the system for personal gain. The book advocates for a transformative shift toward an administration focused on the welfare of citizens. With a comprehensive background in providing management training to over 30,000 government employees, the author offers practical solutions for improving administrative practices. This handbook serves as a valuable resource for planning and implementing training programs, addressing the overall administrative challenges in Kerala and appealing to political leaders and students of social sciences.
