Schadenfreude and Work Life
How to deal with bad envy
IPS Amit Lodha is a decorated police officer. He has caught some of the most notorious criminals in Bihar and even has a Netflix show Khakee based on his work. He graduated from IIT Delhi and soon after joined the police services. He went on to write some of the most popular memoirs on life in public service.
Despite his track record and commitment to uphold the highest standards of law, he finds himself in a strange situation. There is an FIR lodged against him. His bank accounts have been sealed. As of today, the case continues. The glorious and impactful life he built seems to be crumbling away.
We recommend watching his Network Capital masterclass on his career principles. It was recorded before the case was lodged against him. Checking it out will give you a sense of what working in the government entails.
On Friday, he joined the Network Capital Delhi meetup to reflect on his career and the recent twist of events - why it happened, where are things going and the impact on his life. The subscribers who joined the meetup asked him all possible questions and he patiently answered them one after another.
It is an ongoing case so we are not going to comment on it but sincerely hope that justice prevails. We try to create learning experiences like this around the world. There is more to work life than meets the eye. We invite you to join Network Capital and participate in other such online and offline experiences. Even if it helps you make 1/2 good decisions a year, the subscription will pay for itself may times over.
