In today’s increasingly specialized and cut-throat world, a person needs in-depth knowledge and extensive domain expertise to handle a particular department even in a small company.

But it is highly unfortunate that people with no qualification or expertise in the field are being appointed as ministers in India to manage highly complex domains of governance. That’s why India continues to be a poor, underdeveloped country. ~ Rakesh Raman
