Power Corrupts

            'Peter Principle' the popular management theory states, 'In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence'. An oft cited corollary says, 'In time, every position tends to be occupied by one who is incompetent to carry out his duties'. 
            When someone performs well, more is expected of him. The individual who rises to his level of incompetence by then, uses fuzzy logic to mask his failures, tries to shift the onus on to others, and creates an illusion of success.
            The CAG's estimated loss to the exchequer in the alleged 2G scam was first played down as 'presumptive'. Later it was compared to a subsidy similar to the one on diesel and kerosene, and then, the blame was rolled out to a coalition partner. The judicial review that exposed governmental inaction was also not spared.
            Guess who I am talking about?

    I sincerely second the statement of the "oft cited corollary".

    My guess is as good as yours!

    Hope the mathematical prediction of "MAYAN" civilization comes true so, we can begin a fresh beginning!
