Baking News: Successful MTV Roadies To Get Direct Entry into IAS
The Indian government today announced a surprise decision to leverage the auditions of the popular reality TV show MTV Roadies, for filling up the backlog of officers in the IAS.
Here’ an excerpt from the official press release.
“MTV Roadies has grown to become a phenomenon in India over the past years. Young people these days grow up dreaming of becoming Roadies, not doctors, engineers or MBAs.
The Roadies selection process have matured significantly over the years. It can be safely said that anyone who can get through them is guaranteed to be a achiever who will go to any extent to achieve success. Roadies auditions have become voyages of self discovery for young, smart people with dreams in their eyes and passion in their hearts.
The trio of Raghu, Rajeev and Rannvijay are masters at psychology who can judge the inner strengths of individuals within minutes. They also have the unique skill of unleashing people’s hidden talents that they themselves fail to recognize. There have been many cases of people who came to the auditions less than confident of themselves and left as changed individuals.
People have been known to appear and reappear for the auditions over multiple years, till they finally develop the keen skills required to succeed.
Youngsters who clear the rigorous grilling by the three iconic judges are a national asset who must be valued and channelized appropriately. They possess just the right mindset for changing the nation as well as the passion required for being successful.
Keeping the light this available talent pool and the existing shortfall of officers for the prestigious Indian Administrative Services, it was proposed that people who clear the Roadies auditions should get a direct entry to the IAS interviews, bypassing the nearly two year long process involving the gruelling prelims and mains papers. Upon clearing these interviews, successful candidates would then be assigned their cadres and sent for training. Successful completion of training would see them returning to serve the nation as IAS officers.
At this juncture the Indian nation needs the right talent to take us into the 21st century, and Roadies has given us a great opportunity of identifying the right people for the job.
We look forward to successful careers of these bright minds serving our great nation, and would like to recognize MTV Roadies for presenting us this invaluable opportunity.
Had to happen one day. Now nothing can stop us from getting into that elusive UN security council.
