Curious Case of Nepotism

Due to certain circumstances in 2014, I had to turn to my father to help me make a career shift from Sales & Marketing to the Shipping industry. A lot of my work colleagues called me a classic case of nepotism because I leveraged his reputation and contacts to begin my journey in Maritime. When I look back now, I feel extremely content that he opened a door of opportunity for me where I started off as a trainee and worked my way up in the organization to mid-level management with sheer dedication and hard work without any favouritism or getting job promotions on a silver platter.Now let’s talk about the trending topic in the news – Nepotism in Bollywood.I firmly believe there is nothing wrong if the son/daughter of a famous actor, female actor, director or producer gets a launch pad for their debut in movies. The problem arises when these A-listers create a clan in the industry and do not give equal opportunity to outsiders who come with dreams of making it big with their passion,…

I always knew I wanted to be a mother. Also I was the only one who avoided the topic of babies because the idea scared me. Becoming a mother was a melodramatic shift in my life.May 2019, I first found out I was pregnant. I freaked out! All I did was ran to my husband who was fast asleep and broke the news to him. The joy and happiness on his face was priceless. That’s when I knew that it was time to step into the next chapter of our lives - being a first time mother.9 months were full of drama (which I created), food, care and don't forget the unsolicited advices.Seriously, I sort of thought I would have a magic infusion of motherly wisdom when I gave birth to my 8 month old daughter “Chloe”.

My heart really sank when my baby was losing her mind, she would cry for everything be it hunger, diaper change and somethings which I am still unaware of. All the unwanted advices had already confused me and I didn’t know what I was…

The Fall of Manchester United after SAF

Image
First things first! Sir Alex Ferguson is undoubtedly the greatest football manager of all time and has won more trophies than any other manager in the history of football. During his illustrious 26 years with Manchester United he won 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups, and 2 UEFA Champions League titles. I am always reminded of him every time Manchester United are chasing in the dying minutes of the game. You cannot dismiss them until the referee blows the final whistle because of the “Fergie Time” effect. Sir Alex Ferguson’s leadership style is tough, aggressive and loyal with high commitment towards and from the players. Many of his players considered him as a disciplinarian with a hard character and a stubborn man.In 2013, just two weeks after winning his 13th Premier League title, Sir Alex announced his retirement from football management crushing hearts of every Manchester United fan and other football enthusiasts.United have gone from serial winners to mer…
