Interview with Ms.Muanpuii Saiawi Indian Foreign Service (2005) My Paradise Mizoram blog

Interview with Ms.Muanpuii Saiawi Indian Foreign Service (2005) My Paradise Mizoram blog
IFS Batch of 2005, the Media proclaimed her as Mizoram’s greatest Pride when it comes to the Indian Civil Service, making a new earth shattering NATIONAL RECORD in the Indian Foreign Service (IFS) by bagging BOTH the two most prestigious IFS Award recently, namely, the Ambassador Bimal Sanyal Memorial Gold Medal for the Best Officer Trainee and the Ambassador Bimal Sanyal Memorial Silver Medal for the Best Dissertation. Nobody in Indian history has ever received both awards before!!! She was deservingly declared as The Best Probationer of 2005 Batch of IFS Officers.

On her first UPSC attempt in 2003, she made it to IA&AS (Indian Audits and Accounts Service). She wrote the exam again in 2004 and got into IRS (Indian Revenue Service)! But again, she decided to aim even higher and wrote the exam again in 2005. She made it to IFS (Indian Foreign Service)!!!

She’s always been my inspiration and role model when it comes to the civil service exam. Apart from that, she’s also my role model when it comes to leading a devoted life. She’s selfless, cheerful, and always ready to help out anyone. If there is one true example of “What goes around comes around”, then she is it. Good things come to those who are pure at heart. Amen!

In spite of her hectic schedule (she’s flying to South Korea next week for her new posting), she managed to find time to meet me (surprise surprise, she’s even a regular reader of my blog!). She even agreed to do an interview!

Some of you may be familiar with my style of interview. I’ve interviewed Mizo celebrities like Jenny (Former World Boxing Champion) and Zonunsangi (Zonet TV anchor) before. I like adding a lot of humor and good clean fun to my interviews. The Print media and other professionals have interviewed such personalities before, so I don’t want my questions to sound redundant. Hence I ask them questions that others wouldn’t have asked before. Some people strangely considered that as an insult and that I am making fun of people we should be proud of. That is not the case. I have the utmost respect for such people. It’s just that, when I add the “zing” in my questions, I bring out the “fun” in them. If you can’t stand such sense of humor, then with all due respect, I wouldn’t recommend you to read this post.

The interview was a great success. Muanpuii was sporty as usual, laughing out a lot and blushing sometimes, but nevertheless, answered every question.

We picked her up from JNU and proceeded to CP for the interview. We had a small problem initially with the interview venue, because it was Sunday AND Friendship Day, so all the hangout places like CCD, KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Costa’s etc were all jam packed. We finally found a good place at Baskin Robins.

The interview:

What subjects did you take for the UPSC 2005?

I took Public Administration and Anthropology.

How many hours did you use to study?

Well… ummm… I never used to time myself but let’s say… approximately 8 hours a day. That was for around 6 months until the Prelims exam. After that, for the Mains exam, there were so many different coaching classes I go to that there was hardly any time to study at all! That hectic lifestyle went on for around 5 months until the Mains exam.

Is it true that you used to wrap your study materials in a transparent polythene bag and read them while taking a shower? (yeah it was really hard trying to keep a straight face while asking this question).

NO!!!! (laughs out loud)… but… (gives a silly grin) sometimes I read while washing my clothes!

Oh! And how long do you wash in between, say two chapters?

(laughs out again) it was never like that…

Ok maybe it’s easier to answer this way. How much do you read while washing a blouse?

(giggles) well… two A4 size study materials…

And jeans? How much do you study while washing jeans?

(laughs again) I need both hands to wash my jeans, so I don’t read anything then.

So you’re saying jeans is bad, and that if we want to become like you we shouldn’t wear jeans…

Yes… NO!!! I mean… what? You can wear what you want… I’m just saying…

That we cannot read anything while washing jeans.


So we shouldn’t wear jeans if we want to read.

Yes… NO!!! Aaaargh. I’m going to kill you!!!

(After 2 minutes of uncontrollable laughter and a chase inside Baskin Robins that cannot be mentioned here…)

Apart from all the studies then and the work now, how is your romance life?

(blushes) romance? Ummm…… uhhh…. It’s like the waves (shows the up and down action of waves and then laughs out loud. I was biting my lips not to laugh too. After sometime she became serious) Well… seriously speaking, you know me personally. There had never been such waves in my life so far. And I haven’t found Mr. Right yet, but yeah I have my fair share of suitors (smiles).

That’s not surprising. You’ve got the looks and the brains. Right now you’re the most eligible woman in Mizoram.

Yeah rightttt….

Seriously! And just to give some chance to your ardent fans, wha

Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru with Girja Shankar Bajpai, the first Secretary-General of the Ministry of External Affairs, at the first meeting of Commonwealth Prime Ministers in 1948 in London.

Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru with Girja Shankar Bajpai, the first Secretary-General of the Ministry of External Affairs, at the first meeting of Commonwealth Prime Ministers in 1948 in London.
INDIANS have always been interested in foreign affairs. The All India Congress Committee (AICC) published in 1952 an excellent pamphlet by Dr. N.V. Rajkumar, “Foreign Secretary” of the Congress, with a foreword by the general secretary, Lal Bahadur Shastri. It contained texts of its resolutions from 1885 to 1952. It published in 1966 a useful compilation, Resolutions on Foreign Policy 1947-66. Well before Independence, the Congress passed res olutions on foreign affairs. Dr. Bimla Prasad’s pioneering and excellent work, The Origins of Indian Foreign Policy, covers the Congress’ pronouncements on world affairs from 1885 to 1947 (Bookland; 1962). One hopes he will bring out a new edition with a retrospective Introduction. In the main, the Congress sought a share in the administration and consistently opposed British expansionism, whether in Burma, Iran, Afghanistan or Tibet, as also Britain’s policies in West Asia. Jawaharlal Nehru emerged as the Congress’ principal spokesman on foreign policy while Subhas Chandra Bose made his own distinctive contribution.

But there was an air of unreality about most Indian pronouncements. Dr. Lanka Sundaram’s India in World Affairs (S. Chand & Co., 1944) was a sparse work. It covered the Commonwealth, the International Labour Organisation (ILO), Indians overseas, foreign trade and the freedom movement. Dr. Paul F. Power’s book Gandhi on World Affairs (George Allen & Unwin, 1960) analyses the early influences and demonstrates Gandhi’s limited understanding of the complexities of the world order.

Nehru has been portrayed as an “idealist” or a “visionary”. No one has attempted to appraise his world outlook as expressed in the last pages of Glimpses of World History. A Postscript covered the post-Munich events until November 1938. His critics were no better. On January 4, 1948, Sarat Chandra Bose waxed eloquent on a “United Nations of South Asia”. One might mention here that that was very true also of the Opposition in Parliament. The Socialists, the Jan Sangh and the Swatantra Party had a set line as had the Communist Party of India and later the Communist Party of India (Marxist). Not one of them produced a figure knowledgeable enough about foreign policy and the realities of diplomacy. The concepts differ though the differences tend to be blurred – policy is what you do, diplomacy is how you do it. The doyen of the Indian press in his time, S. Mulgaokar, was wont to say that India had no foreign policy, it had attitudes.

Nirad chaudhuri’s censure

Nirad C. Chaudhuri’s scathing censure of Gandhi, Nehru, Subhas Chandra Bose and the Congress entire was true of the entire Opposition. Most of them espoused a hard line on Pakistan and China, opposed any settlement on Kashmir and the boundary question and egged on Nehru as he pursued the disastrous forward policy in Ladakh in 1961-62 to settle the boundary dispute by force. The censure was true of most of the media, which tends to bat with the government on foreign policy, and the academia, which tends to be as culpable.

Nirad Chaudhuri’s article was aptly entitled “They were ignorant of international politics” (The Times of India, February 28, 1982). He exonerates homespun leaders like Gandhi. “The most unexpected aspect of the ignorance was its extent in the two Cambridge men in the Indian nationalist movement, Jawaharlal Nehru and Subhas Bose, who were always talking about the international situation. They were also regarded by their political colleagues as expert authorities on international politics. In spite of all that, not only their knowledge but also their approach were wholly unreal. Both of them saw it in the light of their personal predilections which were shaped by their temperaments and feelings. And their predominant feeling was hatred of British rule in India. In short, their ideas on international politics were only a projection of their nationalism, which prevented their seeing any international situation for what it was.”

It was no better after Independence. The national interest was rightly pursued but was narrowly defined. It was pursued with opportunism and grandstanding, with hypocritical propositions of moral superiority. As we know, Nehru sought an alliance with the United States in 1948-49 but was rebuffed.

There was something wildly unreal about his initial approach on March 11, 1947, when the country was torn by strife and pressing issues of domestic concern cried for attention. Nehru minuted: “India cannot be indifferent to the future of Germany.” In a note on India’s candidature in the elections to the United Nations Security Council, he wrote on October 30, 1946: “India can no longer take up an attitude other than that demanded by her geographical position, by her
