Have we not ever experienced nepotism in our lives?
Is only bollywood to be blamed for all the mess. Not the recent demise of one of the charming actor bought a sort of eruption amongst the citizens with numerous support trending on Twitter and Instagram followers increasing by whooping 1.3 m followers. We are just blatant group of some hyperactive people who get boomed just after something major happens.
Speaking about academics, we’r happened to go through a glimpse of nepotism around us. If you don’t remember even vividly then you missed a part of that nuisance. When someone who is so called a teacher’s kid is pampered by other colleagues around them, or their some stupid content gets published in the school magazine and you didn’t even get that chance once through the tremendous years.
Talking about my own personal experience amidst the 4 yrs of college and the struggle of going for a training or an internship. We all had benefits of our parents/relatives or helped in bagging one of these to enlighten our CV’s.
As we all talk about politics almost all except a few have taken nepotism actually very seriously. In India politics is not a vocation, but a family business. If dad is an MP, his darling son or daughter regards the constituency as their heirloom. When the time for choosing a candidate for the general election comes round – as it has now with the impending general election in May – parties hand out tickets to the relatives of MPs as though they are a family inheritance.
But above all we are all souls, we all have a reason and responsibilities through someone maybe well to do and has an upper hand by people around us to always support. But there are few people who still are talented and believe in putting their own efforts. Example for Vicky Kaushal, despite being the son of a great stunt performer ‘Sham Kaushal’, he started off with an Assistant director or rather pulled out an amazing masterpiece ‘Masaan. Amazingly talented Abhimanyu Dassani in Mard ko dard nai hota. There are millions.
Quoting the incidents of Mahabharata, you can be Karna and still fight all the odds or you can be the one granted favouritism like Arjuna and still be talented. But both of them were equally qualified to be called as the greatest archer after Shiva.
The world is filled with Nepotism. We cant cling to certain things. Life is like a river. The way of life is to flow with the current.
