Bunti aur babli - job consultants

The breed of IIM grads manages to find management fundae in absolutely anything in the world.

Whatever its storytelling flaws, this is one sentiment the scriptwriter has identified perfectly. Move over, Abraham Maslow, this is 21st century India's 'hierarchy of needs' (Maslow is known for establishing the theory of hierarchy of needs -- he said that human beings are motivated by unsatisfied needs, and that certain lower needs need to be satisfied before higher needs can be satisfied).

Izzat (Respectability) x Mazaa (Fun) x Matlab (Meaning) = Career Satisfaction

Apply it to just about any industry or profession. And it works!

Take BPOs, which are worried about employee attrition. These companies provide young graduates with the best of everything -- money, work environment, career growth. Even fun, in the form of special allowances, movies and parties.

The mazaa angle is, thus, well taken care of. But what about izzat?


Rashmi Bansal, the ex-IIMA, current editor of JAM, does it yet again as she extracts Career Lessons from Bunty aur Babli for Rediff. Must admit, though, the stuff IS intriguing and worth a thought or two. Interesting read in any case.

how important contract and temporary workers are as a flexible resource for businesses and how it has become an increasing route back into work for job seekers.
