Someone sent gold biscuits to Modi's top officer who knew about demonetisation in advance



He did not accept, but why did he not say thank you to the benefactor?
 
NEW DELHI: Someone was so worried about the financial condition of one of India's top bureaucrats responsible for its economy, Union finance secretary Hasmukh Adhia, that he/she sent two gold biscuits, weighing 40 grams, to his house without even revealing his/her name.

Another person wanted Hasmukh Adhia to remain connected with the common man, so he was also sent a brand new iPhone 7. Again, the sender did not reveal his/her identity.

Hasmukh Adhia was India's revenue secretary at the time, which made him one of the very, very few people who knew what Prime Minister Narendra Modi was going to tell the nation on the night of November 8, 2016, a decision which sent people running towards the ATM machines and brought the country's economic activity to a grinding halt.

The very honest Hasmukh Adhia did not try to find out who were these kindly kindred souls, submitted the gifts to the government's toshakhana, and never even asked for a probe.

In fact, for a full two years, he did not even make the fact public, and commented only when the news portal thewire.in reported the mystery gifts. (https://goo.gl/2trLa1)

While any aam aadmi would think it is nice to find the identity of the person sending you such pricey, precious gifts, even if you have no intention to accept them, one should go all out to find the sender's address and send him a thank you note. 

His mystery well-wisher sent all these small gifts to the bureaucrat's New Moti Bagh residence. 

Unlike the judge of a high court who did not lose even a minute in calling the police when someone tried to deliver cash at her Chandigarh residence, Adhia did not go to the police, did not ask for a probe and did not request the CBI to probe.

He remained so untouched by this warm gesture of unknown friends that he deposited these small gifts with the government.

The Wire's reportage has pointed out still more disturbing details. The Ministry of External Affairs, which maintains the toshakhana where such gifts are deposited, does not reflect a record of Adhia depositing these gifts, he claims to even have a receipt for the same.

It is a pity that the newsportal The Wire did not ask Adhia why he did not thank the benefactor for such magnanimity, and if his/her identity was not available, why he did not thank the anonymous person through his twitter/facebook account?
