Most of the people think that being partial mean being unfair to someone (you). But that is just one aspect of partiality. There is something more to it-doing you undue favor.
Being unfair to you or showing undue favoritism, both are strategies to being partial to you, and the latter is more dangerous, because you won’t even get a chance to realize that you have been victimized-with a more subtle form of partiality.
This kind of partiality keeps you in illusion, forever. You may think that you are progressing, while in reality, you are just running around in circles, going nowhere. Getting used by someone as a scapegoat for his vested interests.
I worked quite hard to get into media industry. After going through lots of practice, lots of struggle and lots of setbacks, I secured a place for myself as a radio jockey with All India Radio.
After working there for some time I started putting more efforts towards establishing my voice-over career, and in that pursuit I offered my services to a media production house for almost negligible amount of money.
During one of my visits, I came to know that one sound-recordist had started claiming that he was the one who had given me a ‘break’ in media industry. I couldn’t help laughing at his statement.
Such things are quite common, not only in media industry, but probably in every industry you could think of.
When you start getting successful, you may also start seeing some self-proclaimed ‘Grandfathers’ popping around you who will try their best to take credit for your hard earned success.
My advice? Be careful!
