Shattered conceptions !

Let me first confess, what got me to write this piece,  my sister has just completed her six months at work and is a changed person today. It really reminded me of my first year at work.

I was this cool chick, right out of  a not so bad University with a Master's degree in Mass Communication. I felt so sorted in life, moving back to my city with a offer letter
in my hand. I was on cloud nine as I was one of the very few campus pick ups !

So with that little pride and ethics of journalism in my heart, I headed to work. I still
remember my first day, ma and pa had announced it  to all relevant and not so
relevant relatives how their daughter had become a reporter with a reputed
channel. I still remember my dad saying " wo ab TV par dikhagee".

The pride in his voice, boosted my confidence and there I was on the doorstep of
my office. First few days went observing people, knowing managers and trying to
recall my eithics of journalism and how to apply them.

A month of the job, a very senior person from the management called me, with mixed feelings in my head and heart  I entered his cabin. He asked me "Do you have a passport" , yes I replied promptly. " You are Ok going to Australia for an assignment"
he asked, I could'nt  really believe if that question was for me. He said think over it and come back.
"
I gathered myself and walked out, in my mind i was yelling " Australia for work" I am game, wooo hoo.........I told my two friends cum collegeaus about it and they looked at me strangely.....before I could say, they said "so its you next". I ignored them thinking
they were just jealous...

Ready with my ans. I entered his cabin and said, "Yea I wanna go". He got up and said "Lets talk over coffee". With blood gushing down my veins I walked in a small conference room with him.

" So what will you give us in return, for this offer " he said. I smartly said " I wil give you a good coverage and lot of side stories", he smiled and said "What will you give me besides your work honey". I still couldn't understand what he was hinting at, till he held
my hand and said, " you will have to give me something in return"

Aghast, I was and thought did I really hear what i heard?

Yes it was true, '' Few naughty nights with him and I get to go to Australia". Obviously i turned down the offer and never got to go....

And there I was recalling why my collegues were smiling and said "So its you next"

But something in me, was really shattered and that something was 'my pride'. It was not my hard work that had got my that trip, it was just a norm  that every new joinee
had to follow to get further.

And it was not the last time, I heard those uncomfortable words, first six months on the job taught me, that thats they it worked.

A norm in the industry, if you abide by it, you get multiple foreign assignments and promotions, if you turn it down, like me you will only be doing continous night shifts
and turtle like promotions....

Back to present.... I have emerged a stronger person and have understood, if you can't be a part of the system, make peace with it and change your course...

You belong to a dying species of those who do not compromise on ethics, principles and righteous thoughts in their surge towards success. Your type need luck in getting a scrupulous work environment to succeed. Unfortunately, compromise is a part of every organisation, the degree differs. You were right in rejecting compromising on dignity, but then in journalism, one compromises with truth, straightforwardness, support policies, blind sales focussed gimmicks. Where do you draw the line?

From Kashish's point and from general propriety point,what your boss did was an abhoring,disgusting thing.But from what happens in any society,some males(or even females) are always on the prowl to make it out with desirable young things.Your boss was probably just taking a chance.If you would have succumbed,it would probably lead to some kind of erotic reading which could titillate some readers. Normally,if a girl puts her foot down(as you firmly did),she wins respect of the even most hardened scheming guy.It normally does not affect the woman's career in the long run. So relax,the world is full of all kinds of guys;some good,some bad,but mostly lie in the range between.

Guys don’t try to take the sympathy from the public and the victim. Honestly tell me one thing, don’t you think if you would be on that place (where you can take the advantage from the innocent gals) you also treat the gals in the same manners? It’s not a time to say right or wrong to someone rather it’s a time to change ourselves. Whoever has participated here come forward and be sure you all the guys would not do the same and stop the ill treated activities by seniors at their own work places with all the female coworkers. Tough job guys to see the inner soul of ourselves, very easy to comments on others.

u r not the first victim of such scenarios, hundreds of women go through this everyday......girls fresh out of college makes easy targets for such perverts.... unfortunately, on one is ready to take a stand against it...I m quit sure there are tough company policies and proper regulations against sexual harassment in our country... but no one is brave enough to report such incidents.... reason could be any thing- afraid of losing job is one.
