    Hats off to the KRCBC and its able leader The Most Rev Archbishop Bernard Moras for this great venture of training our Catholic youth to mainstream the administrative realm of the country. Yes, our youth and their parents need to wake up and jump into this line. I really thank the Bishops of Karnataka, Fr Peter Brank for collecting from various sources and spending around Rs 80,000 and more on each student every year for this training, and Mr. Chris Bernard the coordinator for the yeomen services efforts and all the faculty. Congratulations to the 55 students ed this year and to more than double of them who opted but could not get through the entrance. Special thanks to Fr Peter for so thoughtfully organizing to honour me on that occasion. I am grateful to His grace and to the Honorable Home Minister Mr KJ George and all other dignitaries and colleagues at KROSS, the Regional Pastoral centre for Karnataka. May your tribe increase CAP Institute.

    Yes, it is very essential that our Youth get into Civil Services and polity. The parents need to train them young by encouraging and promoting them to such fields.We have an obligation to serve our country by being value based leaders in administrative services.
    Those who are in the helms of educational institutions, also have a duty towards our community to identify, encourage and promote good and meritorious candidates including financial support. the IT, BT jobs are loosing the charm they had earlier.

    The training for IAS IFS IPS civil services requires from 8th std. Even professionally qualified (MBBS, B E) can try for the same. In North India atleast one person from every house tries for this, through training centers. But In south India especially in Karnataka in spite of intellectuals we lack training centers. Instead of pushing children who are not interested or not capable it is wise to start a training center where those who are interested can join. The amount spent to train one candidate outside can be utilized to train more candidates.
