What actions should HR and business leaders take to curb mental harassment at work? Share your thoughts.
A poem which vehemently talks about the prevalent nepotism. Read on!
A favour here, a favour there,
A scene of shit, I just can’t bear.
Sat for the exam, scored so good,
But why didn’t I catch that hook?
The interviewer asked five plus five,
I answered ten, but still got jived.
Tell me what’s wrong, the system or me?
Answer fast, I have a deadline to hurry.
Oh look! That jovial girl got the job,
The one who won’t add a drop.
The river has become dirty,
Full of favours and friendly mercies.
I must find a jack for myself too,
To fuck the system, of who’s who.
Here, I sit with all my degrees,
Could someone tell me the worth, please?

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
It's well known how diplomatic and professional Priyanka Chopra is. Why would she want to stir the hornet’s nest when everyone’s happy in their personal space?
Priyanka Chopra (PC) did something completely out of character. She’s usually known for being articulate and mostly diplomatic, unless she wants to give sassy comebacks to people who try to put her on the spot or ‘in her place’.
She’s someone who’s never fought the establishment because she understands you can’t win against it anyway. But you can work around it to get your way to the top. She’s a thorough professional and team player.
For someone like Priyanka Chopra who’s never played victim so far, to admit being the scapegoat of petty politics in the Hindi film industry was refreshing. It’s good to see this unfiltered, vulnerable side of her for a change. PC revealed one of her reasons for shifting to Hollywood on the podcast, Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard.
