    Default meaning of general, colonel

    Baba Sehgal is the general and Roopali is the colonel of the house. They are supposed to monitor 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 the meaning of `general' and `colonel' here?

    It means that they are in charge, like army officers, with Baba presumably being the number one.
