Nepotism in Bollywood Part 1 - What is Nepotism?

 What is Nepotism?

As the wikipedia says, "Nepotism is favoritism that is granted to relatives in various fields, including business, politics, entertainment, sports, religion and other activities. The term originated with the assignment of nephews to important positions by Catholic popes and bishops. Nepotism has been criticized since the ancient times by several philosophers, including Aristotle, Valluvar, and Confucius. For instance, the ancient Indian philosopher Valluvar condemned nepotism as both evil and unwise."

Why Nepotism is considered bad?

Overall, nepotism is definitely not an awful thing. Yet, it is a direction with positive restrictions. The augmentation of family benefit is a methodology of unavoidable losses. "Buddenbrooks" is the term- - harkening back to the Thomas Mann's tale with a similar title- - presently attached to the wonder related with "the progressive decrease in innovative ability from the original to the third" (so Francis Fukuyama in his book Trust: The Social Virtues and the Creation of Prosperity.) There are various precepts that bear witness to this, including "Shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three ages." (Cf. What is reality of the adage about the common pattern of family riches "shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three ages"?) 

Max Weber (humanist) contended that nepotism was a deterrent to modernization and the ascent of the association. He gave extraordinary treatment to the case of China contending that firmly prohibitive family ties in China would ruin the improvement of more generic informal communities fundamental for present day business association and practice. 

Fukuyama builds up the ramifications of familism for financial turn of events. He expresses his postulation thusly: "Societies in which the essential road toward friendliness is family and connection experience a lot of difficulty making enormous, sturdy monetary associations and hence look to the state to start and backing them. Societies slanted toward intentional organzations suddenly and needn't bother with the state's help." 

Into the previous classification (i.e., low-trust social orders), Fukuyama would put China, Italy, France and Korean Peninsula. Into the last mentioned (i.e., high-trust social orders), he puts Japan and Germany. 

So the part of nepotism is unequivocally controlled by culture. Nepotism, while not restricted to monetary turn of events and business arrangement, may almost certainly restrict their direction of development.
