About The Book

"Indian Ethos and Values for Managers" prescribed by the U.G.C in its Model Curriculum for Master of Business Administrator (MBA) programme. The book is based on the famous Sanskrit epic "MAHABHARATA" authored by the Sage Sri Krishna Dvepayan Ved Vyas about 5080 years ago.

The book contains text as well as cases derived from Mahabharata. It proves to the hilt that Indians possessed advanced knowledge of Management and it is in no way inferior to modem management theories contributed by Western Management Experts. We can find solutions to contemporary managerial problems from this treasure of ancient managerial wisdom. Returning to roots will definitely help us in developing an emotionally stable manager with deep grounding of Indian Ethics and Values.
