The Indian Sahibs

1/ IndianSahibs: A senior bureaucrat is checking at the airport but hold, it’s not him but his protocol officer and a CISF guard, who is checking for him.

2/ IndianSahibs: Custom official has stopped so sahib consort is threatening and name dropping on protocol. There people are busy on full tax payer salary. Incidentally, that means Airlines issued boarding pass without seeing the person – a big security hazard. Now why custom official – It is Indian airlines departure from the international side so the customs guy needs to stamp.

3/ An official abusing powers/ utilizing free man powerfully paid by taxpayers is more corrupt than any black money hoarder and on top of it, he is compromising security big time.

4/ and this tells what is wrong with India. We remain servile to officials while going gaga on small busmen eking out a living

5/ same officials who want salaries at par with world best also guaranteed jobs, ten thousand perks,  gleefully tank every Govt scheme by shoddy execution and blatant corruption.

5/ anyone who thinks there is hope for India is living in fool’s paradise. Our real rulers are not politicians but Sahibs who demand and get more power

6/ Sahibs with more powers, zero accountability, and fixed tenures thanks to sustained demand by the middle class. We got our own Frankenstein

So critical question: why great Indian middle class remains extra servile to Babus/Sahibs & full of contempt to politicians? Racism or what?
