These include indifference of authorities and imaginary addresses to highlight incompetence. It reveals system incompetence which has contaminating influence with economic consequences. When such individuals try to solve a problem they offer crude decisions and solutions. The names and characters in the book are purely imaginary. Incompetence is classified under three main familiar heads viz, politics, bureaucracy and management. The funny expressions used by individuals and their loyalty to the hub of incompetence which has assumed the status of an icon of stupidity find place in the book. No doubt at times this causes embarrassment to the organizations especially .to the PR Department. Ultimately the costs of incompetence become great the public becomes the victim. Anyway there is lot of fun and humor provided by incidents of incompetence which are the enjoyable social intangibles. It is only because of the wide variety of incarnations incompetence assumes, it is considered appropriate to name the book as a garland of incompetence. No doubt the underlying theme though incompetence and several facets of it, is humor for relaxation and enjoyment.show more
