    Good servants, bad masters

    Evasion of responsibility for any unpleasant occurrence is a uniquely Indian trait. Bureaucrats instinctively shun responsibility, framing rules so that no action can ever be attributed to a defined person. Any decision on any file in any Ministry would bear the signatures of half a dozen officials so that no one can deduce who was the moving force behind the decision. Mostly, the file would show that a decision was unanimous, taking away responsibility of all concerned.
