Was your manager competent enough to guide you in building your career?



I have had a few weird and unusual experiences in my life, especially, in the workplace. Those experiences compelled me to wonder about the work ethics that are followed in these places as many of such practices adversely affected my career as well as others too.

But before beginning what I endured let's read a story first:-

The Story of a gem-cutter


Once upon a time, there was a gem-cutter who was not so skilled in his trade. But he was a favorite of his master.

One day his master gave him a very precious stone to cut into a beautiful piece of jewel. The gem-cutter could not do it properly. He broke it into several pieces.

His master realized his mistakes and soon replaced him with a skilled one. The new gem-cutter collected the pieces of this broken gem and cut each one of them beautifully. They are now smaller in size but they shone brilliantly.

The mistake done by the jewel shop owner was that he relied on somebody based on favoritism and not on the skills he possessed to perform a task and this led to the disastrous result.

When agency people could not find anything to undermine my merit, they looked for personality disorders.



Based on a true experience of a dedicated worker who just could not give up...

A few years back, I got a job as a social media executive in a reputed IT firm. I was chosen to work for them after successfully completing a course in digital marketing from an institution run by the same company. I was practically thrilled at first, but soon realized I had made a mistake.

Nepotism In India


Animosity towards nepotism has again revived due to the untimely demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, a vivid and successful Bollywood star. People were taken back when they got to know about this tragedy. Who knew someone who had it all was going through so much that the only choice he had was to take his life. Such is the condition of the industry that is Bollywood. This malady is for the outsiders who have no acting or film industry links. This is not limited in Bollywood but also in almost all areas of importance.
