When you are witnessing frequent surprises they become a new normal. But this is something which is still a rare one. 
Abrupt lateral shift and premature repatriation of Govt of India Secretaries no longer give any surprise now. But if a Govt of India Secretary is counting days from over a month now under ‘Awaiting posting order’ it certainly compels to think of.
