Generalists to the fore

India is run by two significant set of people.

One is IAS Officers - They are normal graduates, post graduates. Does clear hell lot of civil services / UPSC exams and gain the post. They are rotated randomly inside government over their career across various divisions and manage the show.

They are mainly generalists.... But they take decisions like running a power project or constructing a dam etc.

Second set is High Court Judges - For the past 20 years, they have a say in every big policy decision made in India... right from Caste quota or job quota, various financial fraud cases, 2G etc...

What is interesting is... Can you or me become a General Manager in say Big Bazaar, Toyota showroom ....
