By the way : Talent can’t be crushed

hief Minister of Uttar PradeshCircumstances may change at any time. The action one takes at a time on duty may sound good but it may boomerang. It has happened with Hari Om, a 1997-batch IAS officer, was Gorakhpur DM in 2007, when Yogi – then MP – was arrested for allegedly instigating communal unrest and defying prohibitory orders. As time passed and politics turned, Yogi Aditya Nath became Chief Minister of UP. Hari Om is now feeling the heat as Yogi has never forgotten that day. He is at present serving at an insignificant post of secretary, general administration. But the culmination of circumstances has not dampened the spirit of Hari Om. The erstwhile topper in Hindi medium in his batch has launched a music video, ‘Ro chuke jinke liye rona tha’ in Lucknow. The lyrics for the music video, however, have been written by retired UP cadre IAS officer Anis Ansari. On the eve of the video release, Hari Om said, “Having been born and raised in Uttar Pradesh, I have always loved the Hindi language and honed my skills. I am content that I can put it to constructive use which people of this country can relate to.” The music video is part of album called Rang Ka Dariya. Hari Om said that he has always loved expressing his creative abilities and is only ‘fulfilling them’ through this album. He avoids queries on being sidelined and instead says, “I do my riyaz early morning for at least an hour with a harmonium before reading the morning newspapers and heading off to office.” gfiles end logo
