MK Kaw gained literary recognition with Bureaucrazy: IAS Unmasked, which was hailed by Khushwant Singh as the most readable book on the problems of administration he had ever read. This book, now available as Bureaucrazy Gets Crazier, has attained the status of a classic. In this book, Kaw wields a facile pen. He roams across the realms of wit and sarcasm and demolishes individuals and institutions with merry abandon. Here, he lampoons netas, babus, jarnails, Kashmiris, the generation ill at ease with gizmos and gadgets and the ageing Methuselahs obsessed with disease and death. MK Kaw joined IAS in 1964 and retired in 2001. After retirement, he served as chairman, board of governors, NIT, Srinagar and chairman of the committee on reorganisation of the DGCA.
