The Bhagwad Gita and Management

with 2 comments

Walked down to level-1 to catch Tarzan 🙂 and go for a stroll-n-smoke.

Instead he asked me to accompany him and a couple of his team-mates to level-9 and promised that post that we’ll follow the original stroll-n-smoke plan. With some time to kill on my hands, I meekly obliged.

As I was stuffing myself (actually had skipped Lunch) with samosa/kachori, one of the senior guys started talking about Bhagvad-Gita. Yea … rite!!

He wanted opinions of people below 30 on the relevance of the Gita in todays scenario. I am not sure of his background but the guy quoted a lot of Sanskrit shlokas(a poetic verse, mostly religious) and seemed to have read the Gita more than once. The discussion got interesting but what caught my attention was the mention of an article where the fundamentals in the Gita are applied to Management. Here’s the article.

It makes an interesting read though the relevance is debatable. Is it not said that ‘Everything is fair in love and war’? And business to me is no less than a war!!

After the intellectual discussion on level-8, Tarzan n me continued it further (Lure of the West/Lucre, Indian Society is hypocritic and much more) 🙂

Have I become an incorrigible blabber ? Not really. Chit-chats like the above make one think … dont they?

  2. One of the greatest contributions of India to the world is Holy Gita
    which
    is considered to be one of the first revelations from God. The
    management
    lessons in this holy book were brought in to light of the world by
    divine It provides “all that is needed to raise the
    consciousness
    of man to the highest possible level.” it reveals the deep,
    universal
    truths of life that speak to the needs and aspirations of everyone.
