Our very own Kishore

Not many IAS officers get time to pursue their hobbies, and this is even more surprising when he is serving as the Private Secretary of one of the most sought after ministers of Government of India. Nitishwar Kumar, 1996 batch IAS officer of the Uttar Pradesh cadre, is such an officer. He is serving as Private Secretary to Minister of State for Communication Manoj Sinha. Nitishwar, who hails from Bihar, has a passion for singing. He likes to sing the famous singer Kishore Kumar’s songs along with local Bhojpuri and Maithili folk songs. Most senior civil servants in the Modi dispensation shy away from public discourses, but Nitishwar is an exception. To carry on his passion, he organised an evening in the memory of singer Kishore Kumar in the main auditorium of NDMC, Delhi. His boss Manoj Sinha attended the evening with full paraphernalia. JS Deepak then Secretary of the Ministry of Communications, Balvinder Kumar along with senior ministry officials enjoyed the musical evening. Even the Cabinet Secretary PK Sinha enjoyed the music. The evening rose to the new heights when Nitishwar sang the famous song of Kishore Kumar “Mere naina, sawan bhadon, phir bhi mera man pyasa”.
