You have the right to work, but for the work's sake only. You have no right to the fruits of work. Desire for the fruits of work must never be your motive in working. Never give way to laziness, either.
Perform every action with you heart fixed on the Supreme Lord. Renounce attachment to the fruits. Be even-tempered in success and failure: for it is this evenness of temper which is meant by yoga.
Work done with anxiety about results is far inferior to work done without such anxiety, in the calm of self-surrender. Seek refuge in the knowledge of Brahma. They who work selfishly for results are miserable.”
― Bhagavad Gita
Relentless, resilient, ambitious, prolific and passionate are just the few of the many adjectives that describe Mr. A Chandrasekhara Reddy. For aspiring public servants, he is the template. He has been serving in public service for over three decades and extensively in the power sector. During his tenure as the CEO of SECM, Andhra Pradesh won national awards five times, including the prestigious National Energy Conservation Award for the best performance in energy savings, which he received from the President of India. As he passed his baton to finally retire, the race has called out to him again.
Within six months of his retirement, he was appointed as its senior advisor on matters related to business development and government affairs by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a joint venture of the Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) under the Ministry of Power. Further, recognising and honoring his meritorious service, BEE, MOP, GOI has entrusted the role of Nodal Officer for the LIFE for Environment Mission launched by the Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi at COP26 in Glasgow to him.
