We All Know Nepo­tism

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Apro­pos ‘And What is Your ‘Good Name’?’ by Kr­ish­na­murthy Subra­ma­nian (Aug 3), given the strong fil­ial con­nec­tions in In­dia, it is in­evitable that nepo­tism will ex­ist in some form or the other. Erad­i­cat­ing nepo­tism that is em­bed­ded in our so­ci­ety is an up­hill task. The author gives a few ex­am­ples of how celebri­ties have ben­e­fited from nepo­tism. We are all guilty in small mea­sures in pro­mot­ing our near and dear ones at the cost of more de­serv­ing can­di­dates. Hope­fully, nepo­tism will even­tu­ally be wiped out in a thriv­ing democ­racy.
