Q2(b). Important Attributes for Public Service

Q2(b). Indicate two more attributes which you consider important for public service. Justify your answer. (100 words; 10 marks)
The two other important attributes of public servants are:
1. Compassion: Compassion means ‘co-suffering’ with others. A compassionate person wishes to alleviate the suffering of other people as if it is his own. When a public servant has compassion for the people, he does not perform his job merely as a duty, but with a purpose to reduce the suffering of the people by helping them in the best possible way.
2. Tolerance: Tolerance means the ability or willingness to tolerate the existence of opinions or behaviour that one dislikes or disagrees with. There are many religions, castes, languages and cultures in India. An intolerant public servant can’t perform his duties in a fair and just manner as he may be unfair to people having different thoughts and beliefs. (121 words)
