Shivaji Mahan Cairae, the first Director General of Police in Jharkhand, left for his heavenly abode on September 2. A shanti paath has been organised by his family members and friends at Arya Samaj Mandir, Ring Road Vikaspuri, New Delhi on September 5 - 3-4 pm.
Shivaji Mahan Cairae, 1967 batch IPS officer of Bihar - Jharkhand, who retired as DGP of Jharkhand in 2005, was leading a retired life in the national capital.
He has left behind a proud family with wife Anjula Cairae, son Vikram Cairae, his wife Shuchi, daughter Nidhi and her husband Amit Kumar.
During career, Mr Cairae was known for his courage, devotion, hard work and honesty.He felt passionately about police reforms and believed that drastic changes are needed to create a people-friendly police force in India.
In fact,people across the police family in Bihar and Jharkhand have been in grief. With his bravery and single-minded devotion to duty, he has set an example to the Indian Police as a whole for pursuing the call of duty even if it means danger to one's life.
“Policing in our country can be hazardous, especially if one wants to check graft and dishonesty. Gone are the days when dishonest elements, both in the polity and society at large, caused officers only minor harm by shifting them from one location to another, so that they cause less inconvenience.
Things have now reached such a pass that you can speak and stand for honesty and adherence to the law only at your peril”, these words were expressed by Mr Cairae when he was talking to a friend in New Delhi on December 6, 2006.
This,Mr Cairae had felt, was the tragedy of the Indian State. There are no signs of any major stir of emotions among those in the executive and the bureaucracy who matter and are capable of stemming the rot.
Many of them are sulking because of the might of those arrayed against them. After his retirement, Mr Cairae wrote a number of articles such as “Judicial Reforms”,www.arsipsco.com and “ Some suggestions for good governance in India” , TILAKMARG- The Road To Justice.
Anjula Cairae,wife of the bold and daring cop of the Indian Police Service,and his family members and friends have circulated an e- card expressing “ grief and deep sorrow…” and inviting others to pay tributes to Mr Cairae at his Shanti Paath at the venue and schedule mentioned above.
JharkhandStateNews.com feels Mr Cairae’s life was a blessing, his memory a treasure. He was loved and respected beyond words and missed beyond measure. When someone who is loved becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.” I Salute Mr Cairae”, said Manoj Prasad, Editor.
