How Ghostwriting affect for academics?
It will not much harm for you and me because we are already working, This practice will much harm for Pre-Employment (Particularly in the time of Govt. Jobs where they are following API scores). Undeserved person will be shortlisted for his/her writings actually which have been written by others (Might be their guides, academicians, Paid writers etc.).
It's my concern....!
I understand your points but I am not in the same row of your philosophy. You are thinking it as challenge or problem whereas I am looking an opportunity(50%) and also out of context(50%). I am employed or in position to search a new job has no business with others. It's my luck and labor which will only help me(same applies to all others). If others are having much influence(someone can write) or wealth(can buy the papers) why should I be sad or worried?
As in my very first comment mentioned it is the topic of no relevance.
Please excuse if my words scope any hard word.
Dear Siddu Sir,
I have gone through your post and thought that you have pointed/raised an issue on/about something illegal. But as long as I gone through the comments it seems you have got heart on someone's achievement which he/she don't deserve (may be I am wrong). No doubt your topic of discussion is an important matter to discuss but, I feel there is nothing to take it personally and if there is something, than take it in a positive way as Munesh sir and Siddhartha sir have advised. Let me give you an example of my personal experience-
When I was in graduation I have done some final projects of others on paid basis. I was thinking at that time these projects are valueless and waste of money/energy/time and so on. How these people are? Useless fellow, don't have minimum knowledge/guts to complete their own project(s). But when I was in my MLIS course, the pressure of preparing projects is so much and huge that many times I thought to complete those by someone else (however I have done myself).
So its not necessary that someone is completing his/her projects by someone else is always wrong. In some cases it affected morally/ ethically. Trust me I have seen so many people receiving big things which they don't deserve, it hearts me. But practically you can't prove them wrong until it affected the plagiarism rules. Don't raise your voice against the pocket money funds of the unemployed people (jokes a part). Till then I think we should stick to "if they can why not I/We?" Pardon me if something hearts you.
