The irritating trend of nepotism in IndiaNepotism is all across India. Though, in some fields, it is more prevalent. It is more widespread in politics.
In India, most of the politicians prefer their kith and family to become their political heirs. The examples are Mulayam Singh Yadav and Karunanidhi, whose whole clan is into politics. Rahul Gandhi is a de-facto leader of Congress party because he is the son of Shri Rajiv Gandhi. Laloo Yadav made his sons Deputy CM of Bihar without any knowledge and eligibility. There are so many examples of nepotism or favouritism in Indian politics that you can load many books with their names.
Another area where nepotism has deep roots in is the film industry. Today, most of the film stars are the kids or family members of some famous film stars. There are stars who had struggled to become a part of this industry but had fallen in this nepotism trap. They also followed the same and started promoting their children instead of choosing the people based on performance and acting skills.
What is your take on such kind of practices?
