Rajdeep Sardesai and money

Outlook magazine quotes about Rajdeep Sardesai: A website wrote he quit NDTV because he thought he worked the hardest and yet there were five people who were earning more than him.

Link thanks to Adi and Gautam Ghosh.

And to quote Gautam Ghosh's analysis, "So while money in itself is not a motivator, it also becomes a mirror for one's centrality in the organization. And when one finds that reputation and compensation do not match, it's a vulnerable time for poachers."

I strongly agree with Gautam's theory. In fact, I've been on the receiving end sometime in the past two years when some of us had to do a project for a company for free. It wasnt the fact that we were poorer by a few rupees that mattered, but that since the client made no investment in us, we dont command respect in his mind - and hence our recommendations wouldn't be taken seriously. As it turned out, the client did pay us, and was greatly impressed with our work.

I love the concept of money!
