There was an article way back in ninteies where it was told, the role of consultant in India is to comedown all the way from uphills and shoot at the dead animal to ensure that it is dead.
I too agree with it in most of the cases.
As a matter of fact, I too is a part time freelance engineering consultant, but now a days mostly I carrying dead bodies which have been already shooted. :P

At numerous occasions I invested at the advice of consultants which resulted into loss due to prevailing financial market conditions where consultants had no role. So why to blame consultants,,,!

I don't mind becoming a part time consultant if it can give me some extra bucks.
But I am sure this part time job will eat away my full time.
Making money is not easy, you see !

In our life when we are in job , most of us are having full responsibility without any authority whereas a consultant advices with full authority without any responsibility for the outcome ..

Top Ten Things You'll Never Hear from your Consultant
1. You're right; we're billing way too much for this.
2. Bet you I can go a week without saying "synergy" or "value-added".
3. How about paying us based on the success of the project?
4. This whole strategy is based on a Harvard business case I read.
5. Actually, the only difference is that we charge more than they do.
6. I don't know enough to speak intelligently about that.
7. Implementation? I only care about writing long reports. ...more
