Increasingly if a woman has to be successful in the corporate world in India, she will have to lead a very westernized lifestyle and may have to use the casting couch. If she does not lead a westernized lifestyle, however competent she may be at her work, she will be sidelined and not get what she deserved.
The fact that drinking ballantine’s whisky was the preferred way for Jahnavi Gadkar , (Reliance VP legal, who was later involved in a fatal accident)to celebrate her success indicates the drastic change in the lifestyle of Indian working women. A decade ago, a woman professional would celebrate with eating food or some entertainment, mostly with her family at home.
It is not known who has influenced or pulled off the great change in Indian corporate culture for women in a short span of time. However, it has been very unfair to a vast majority of indian women who are professionally competent, yet find that they are getting a raw deal, as inexperience mediocre women are preferred at their expense, because these mediocre women conform to a westernized lifestyle
Doing business or even being friends with a complete stranger can be risky if you do not know the person well, he or she can betray you any time without feeling any guilt at all and without suffering from the consequences, socially and professionally . Hence it is advisable to spend some time with a person before deciding to deal with him or her to understand the true character of the person. In a business environment the person will be on his or her guard and show their best side, making it difficult to judge or predict whether the person will be honest and reliable in the long term.
Hence it is advisable to spend some time with the person in a more informal surroundings before dealing with the individual professionally or personally. Eating out at a restaurant either for lunch or dinner is a good way to know a person better and selecting a well known restaurant with live entertainment will be a good way to build trust. Often popular restaurants have live music and dance performances to entertain their customers. Popular singers like Anushka Manchanda will entertain the customers in the restaurant with their latest popular songs, helping them relax over food .
Though recorded and televized performances are available easily today, nothing can match a live performance by a singer or dancer in terms of entertainment value . Pop singers like Anushka Manchanda, have a wide range of songs to cater to their audience of different backgrounds. In some cases, they may also agree to sing songs which members of the audience may request. Seeing the person react to the presence of a celebrity singer, how he or she will react will also help to gauge the character of the person. Some people will behave nicely if the person is well known or high profile, and ruthlessly exploit those who they feel are vulnerable
Dance performances are also a part of the entertainment which many restaurants are providing today. Instead of going to the theater or cinema for entertainment and then eating out, the entire experience can be combined at the restaurant. Though movies and Tv shows have dancers executing difficult moves, these are often manipulated using special effects and equipment available. Watching the Dancing sensation and telegu actor Allu Arjun perform live in a restaurant will be a different experience altogether. He may perform to recorded music or to the live music provided by the singer Anushka Manchanda.
So before trusting a person for business or personal life taking them to restaurant with a life performance of Anushka Manchanda and Allu Arjun to accurately gauge their character, will help you understand the person well, and prevent a nasty betrayal in future.
