Article Title: Those unmatched 40 minutes
This amusing article by Anuvab Pal deals with various new kinds of overpaid jobs (joked as overpaid millennial jobs) whose existence people did not even know about earlier. The author gives an example of a MEME Expert who earns 2 lakhs a month to improve MEME – ING skills of a company; a WEB WATCHER who earns 2.5 lakhs a month to surf the internet to keep a track of who is watching what. And a special mention to a man with a job as a RESTAURANT FEEL CONSULTANT, whose work is to go to top restaurants and make comments on their decor , aesthetics etc., just like mimicking GORDON RAMSEY ( Michelin star American cook and a TV host ) without actually cooking plus this guy earns 1 crore. The author then comments on the judges of TV shows (judges who were people like former DJs who earlier just did random gigs), whose only job is to call their contestants idiots.
While concluding this article the author strikes a contrast between Vikram Seth and some random famous social media worker who would be read more than a booker nominee and might even earn more than him. Meeting people with jobs like CLOUD ARCHITECTS, HOLISTIC LIVING ENABLERS etc. makes him now believe that normal jobs have ceased to exist.
