The man who wanted a motherly love from his wife

Naren was a successful lawyer based in Kolkata. Being the only child of the family, he was a darling to his mother who showered boundless love and affection upon him. Naren grew up as a perfect ‘ma ka beta’ who loved his mother dearly and vowed to do anything for her.

Naren was brought up by his mother in such a way that he became dependent on her, who helped in his daily routine. Apart from his job and going to the market for grocery shopping, he was naive in doing household chores. The level of dependency became so much that, when she was diagnosed with cancer and died within a year, Naren was utterly devastated.

This is the real-life story of a narcissistic guy, who wants to marry a woman so that he can get back the comfortable life his mother had given him.

Common mistakes we make before accepting a job offer

Of late I came across a LinkedIn post by a person who claimed to have been deceived by the company he served. He claimed the company took services from him and did not pay him on time. Instead, they terminated his services.

As the name of the company sounded familiar to me, I went through the Glassdoor reviews of it and came to know that, indeed there are a lot more people who had suffered from a similar fate. The reviews were old and reveal enough information to a new candidate opting for a job in that company to understand what's going on inside. My question is, "Why did the complainant did not go through the reviews before joining the company?" He should have analyzed them thoroughly before making a decision.

Isolation - the worst weapon used by bullies in office

The worst cruelty that can be inflicted on a human being is isolation. - Sukarno (Politician, Indonesia)

Isolation adversely affects a person's mental status so much that the person starts behaving in a manner unacceptable to society. "Isolating the targeted employee" is the worst weapon ever used by bullies in an office environment. The introverts are mostly affected.

The more the affected person tries to comply with the situation the more isolated the person becomes. If the victim denies any false charge against him/her the higher authority thinks the person is lying. If the victim protests against any bad behavior she received from the bullies, the person faces more verbal abuse from the higher authority. Whatever the victimized employee does to prove his/her point of view goes wrong and against that employee. Wrong handling of the situation aggravates the tension between the affected employee and the other office colleagues who misunderstand the victim and consider the person as a trouble creator.

Team leaders and managers should be trained in such a manner so that they can identify these bullies in their teams. They should learn to understand the psychology of these people in order to handle them properly. Such pieces of training are hardly ever given to team leaders in our country. Likewise, the affected employee should be mentored and guided properly by HR.

Divide & Rule Policy with Two Strategists for one project leads to Conflict of Interests & Demoralizing Effects

I have been working as a digital marketing executive for the last three years and have already served under two team leads who guided me well enough to make me a confident person in the realm of internet marketing. Now I have moved to another city to start a full-fledged career in the same under the guidance of a senior manager. However, after starting my new job I faced a precarious situation that compelled me to ponder over the serious issues of resource management in a detailed way.
