  1. Hello, hello! says:

    In this meeting, a few do not want to wear masks!
    Basically, India has kept the same administrative set up that British had. The DC is one of them. The only diffeence is the ICS officeers are replaced by IAS officers. There is the boast that the IAS exams are very comptitive, and only te best go through. In india, nothing is merit-based, there will be some who are let in through merit and others, a large number of them are allowed based on various undisclosed reasons. Exams are reasy to manipulate and evaluate, using many criteria.
    They said th same when IITs were established. In their first year, the admission was on merit, in subsequent years, quota systems were there: the director had his quota, the professors had their quota, the ministers theirs and administrative officers of the state and the coutry had theirs. Nothing was disclosed, quietly students were let in through the back door.
    What the British left is a simple district administration by an ICS officer. Now, that system is basically retained and more and more complex administrative set up was imposed on it.
    Well done, independent India!

    Is it mandatory for every higher official like the DC to have a moustache? I see moustache on secretaries advising ministers, and moustached IAS officers pontificating what others should do, etc.. Moustache seems to be the sign of authority in independent India!
    At one time, every man who worked for the government in Iraq, at the time of Saddam Hussain , sported moustaches like him!
