Hyderabad|India|:P Abraham's "Memoirs of an IAS Officer - From Powerless Village to Union Power Secretary" is strikingly transparent and candid portrait of an able administrator's incredible journey in life.

It portrays his life in a remote village with humble background; education in his village school; a first generation educated from his family; first to go to the college from his village; the sacrifices made by his parent's; his academic excellence and his determination to get into the premier Indian Administrative Service and was selected to the IAS in his first attempt at a young age of 22 years. It is truly a remarkable journey made from a powerless village to the top of the ladder in the administrative echelons in the country. It is a gripping account of a determined person's journey fuelled by the impassioned interest to scale greater heights in life.

In his long service of over 35 years in the lAS, Abraham held several sensitive assignments including 15 years specialized service in the power sector, the jobs included Chairman, Maharastra State Electricity Board, Mumbai and the Union Power Secretary. During his tenure the "Common minimum National Action Plan for Power" was formulated initiating major reforms in the sector, which has become the bedrock of the power reforms and is presently being implemented in the country.

Abraham concludes that the biggest incentive to a civil servant is, to be a part of the growth process of the country, actively participate in policy making and implement them effectively and be a Facilitator for a Change. The civil services offer excellent opportunities to serve the aam aadmi and the poor for the inclusive growth of the country.

Abraham's objective in penning down the Memoirs is to inspire the younger generation to participate in the process of development and make a difference to the cause of the common man and the country.
