Shark Tank India’s Namita Thapar lambasts grind culture: Stop wearing it as a badge of honour

At its heart, Shark Tank India is a business oriented show. The reality show has given viewers some valuable lessons in entrepreneurship that certainly have the potential to inspire entrepreneurs to bring their businesses to new heights. But in the pursuit of greatness in the business world, it seems to be very easy to lose sight of other important things as well, as is evidenced by the ‘grind culture’. One of the sharks, Emcure pharmaceuticals executive director Namita Thapar, recently gave her take on the harms of a culture that values productivity above all else.

Taking to her official Twitter handle, the businesswoman talked about how some people glorified a 24/7 work culture and wore it as a ‘badge of honour’. Instead of people taking pride in the fact that they work long hours, travel a lot and have no time to spend with families, Thapar believes that having a good work-life balance should be emphasised. Such balance was necessary to make sure that the ‘next generation’ is more mentally fit, productive and get necessary quality time with their parents.

On Shark Tank India, the businesswoman has appeared in almost 32 episodes of the show. She has invested in more than 20 startups.
