General, Colonel

India - Hindi
Baba Sehgal is the general and Roopali is the colonel of the house. They are supposed tomonitor the tasks given to the soldiers. This means the soldiers will have to work really hard, while the general and colonel will have all the fun. Cool!

What is general and colonel in this paragraph?

(I think : general and colonel is some kind of designation in office)

But what is their role to play in office?
  • Both General and Colonel are military ranks in the Army (not the Navy or the Air Force). From what you have written it is not clear whether we are talking about a military establishment or not. If, as I suspect, we are talking about an office, then the use of General and Colonel is metaphoric, referring to the positions of authority these two personalities hold.
