cannot be truly productive and tap into the true potential of a nation of more than 13 billion people Nepotism on many levels fails the test of objectivity and rationale I have acquired these values from the ones who have found great success and discovered a higher truth much before me These values are in the public domain and no one has a copyright on them Greats like Vivekananda Einstein and Shakespeare didn’t belong to a select few They belonged to collective humanity Their work has shaped our future and our work will shape the future of the coming generations Today I can afford to have the willpower to stand for these values but tomorrow I might fail and help my own children realise their dreams of stardom In that case I believe that I would have failed as an individual But the values will never fail They will continue to stand tall and strong long after we are gone So we owe an explanation to everyone who either owns or wants to own these values Like I said we are the ones who will shape the future of the coming generations In another part of your letter you talked about the relationship between genetics and star kids where you emphasised on nepotism being an investment on tried and tested genes I have spent a significant part of my life studying genetics But I fail to understand how you can compare genetically hybrid racehorses to artistes Are you implying that artistic skills hard-work experience concentration spans enthusiasm eagerness discipline and love can be inherited through family genes If your point was true I would be a farmer back home I wonder which gene from my gene-pool gave me the keenness to observe my environment and the dedication to interpret and pursue my interests You also spoke of eugenics — which means controlled breeding of the human race So far I believe that the human race hasn’t found the DNA that can pass on greatness and excellence If it had we would’ve loved to repeat the greatness of Einstein Da Vinci Shakespeare Vivekananda Stephen Hawking Terence Tao Daniel Day-Lewis or Gerhard Richter You also said that the media is to be blamed since it is the real flag-bearer of nepotism That makes it sound like a crime which is far from the truth Nepotism is merely a weakness of the human nature; it takes a great deal of willpower and strength to rise above our intrinsic nature — sometimes we excel sometimes we don’t No one is putting a gun to anyone’s head to hire the talent they don’t believe in So there is no need to get defensive about one’s choices In fact the subtext of all my talk on this subject has been to encourage outsiders to take the path less travelled Bullying jealousy nepotism and territorial human tendencies are all part of the entertainment industry much like any other If you don’t find acceptance in the mainstream go off beat — there are so many ways of doing the same thing I think the privileged are the least to be blamed in this debate since they are part of the system which is set around chain reactions Change can only be caused by those who want it It is the prerogative of the dreamer who learns to take his or her due and not ask for it You are absolutely right — there is a lot of excitement and admiration for the lives of the rich and famous But at the same time our creative industry gets this love from our countrymen because we are like a mirror to them — whether it’s Langda Tyagi from Omkara or Rani from Queen we are loved for the extraordinary portrayal of the ordinary So should we make peace with nepotism The ones who think it works for them can make peace with it In my opinion that is an extremely pessimistic attitude for a Third World country where many people don’t have access to food shelter clothing and education The world is not an ideal place and it might never be That is why we have the industry of arts In a way we are the flag-bearers of hope For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd
