Henry,

I question your simplistic conclusion. The IAS are successful or not, or

whether there should be a privileged class called "IAS" or not is
something worth looking at. However, your question of public
accountability rather then them being accountable to their politician
bosses, it very simplistic to say the least. How exactly do you define
public accountability if you take away the power from the hands of
popularly elected public representatives, the politicians?

If the politicians are corrupt, or the "government machinery" is corrput

as you say, then that is the problem and people ought to concetrate to
trying to fix it. If politicians are corrupt then don't blame the IAS
for the that, if a bureaucrate is corrupt, even then don't blame a class

of people, I would prefer dealing dierectly with such cases individually

rather then whining and complaining about the whole group of people.
What will happen to the morale of sincere and hard working bureaucrate
or politician who finds himself/herself in a defending position due to
such generalizations?

Don't pass generalized judgements simply because you care about getting
rid of corruption.

Thank You.

Umesh
