Leadership & Accountability

Satish Dhawan was the chairman of ISRO during the first launch of SLV. Despite sincere efforts the launch of SLV failed. Satish Dhawan didn't blame anyone and took the responsibility for failure. In the next attempt, when the launch was successful, he didn't boast about his own efforts in making the mission a success. Rather, he gave full credit to his team that had worked hard for the mission. Such a humble gesture shown by Satish Dhawan set a great example of leadership to the organization and others, who drew inspiration from him.

Resilience

Karoly Takacs was a Hungarian Shooter who had put years of hard work to participate in the Olympics. But he could not do so due to cancelation of Olympics due to second world war. To make things worse, he lost his right hand (his shooting hand) in the world war. But, such situations could not stop him. He worked harder and trained his left hand to participate in the Olympics. With this single hand he won two successive Gold Medals in Olympics of 1948 and 1952, setting a world record by winning two successive Gold Medals in Olympics.

Dr Denis Mukwege- Gynaecologist. As a surgeon, Denis Mukwege has helped thousands of victims of sexual violence in armed conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Both on a national and an international level he has repeatedly condemned impunity for mass rape. Several attempts for his assassination have been made but he is working fearlessly.

Famous quote- “You can’t operate against violence, you can only abolish it.”

@upsc2020Trying to revive this thread. Will put whatever my eye catches while reading newspaper.


1. C Sankaran Nair was a petitioner against General Dyer (the mastermind of Amritsar Massacre) in the British court. All white jury gave the verdict in favour of Dyer, freeing him from all the acquisition of the human genocide. Sankaran was asked to pay a monetary fine to Dyer. Dyer offered to wave off his fine if he tendered an apology. Sankaran decided to pay the fine.


2. Dy CM of NCT of Delhi- Manish Sisodia, protected the free speech of a student who criticized her college administration. She was studying in a Delhi Govt run college- Ambedkar University.

Dunno which part of Ethics syllabus accommodates these examples.
