BABU-MOSHAI of the system

Clerks (aka babuji), Drivers and Peons in a Government departments are more powerful than the Officer himself!

How often are we denied our demands on the gate itself; all those shields to the Officers are so strong that one won’t even dare to argue with them! After all, these are the pillars of Indian bureaucratic system, who can make or mar the future of any file…

They are the people with the utmost knowledge of associated Laws and more often or not, have a better understanding of the systems & procedures than the Governing officer himself! These are the people with a lot of experience, and even guide the officer in charge as they have been doing this job since ages! The knowledge should be respected, but the abuse of this knowledge is unacceptable…

These Babu- moshai escape almost every time as the burden of any wrongdoing is to be shouldered by the Officer in charge, but actually the culprit is someone else…

Elimination of Baburaj was one of the main agenda after we got independent; but alas, it has followed the suit of unending agendas like Reservation!

At least, make them accountable for any wrongdoing and that accountability should be really tough!
