in this" project arrow age" to be a postmaster is very hazardous .They are between the garibidis and the Guharibos, ie between the sea and the evil.They are supposed to bear their subordinates and their superiors.The IP line people are less interested to shoulder this responsibility .That may be the reason behind this creation of PM cadre.What an idea sirji?
