Bhagvad-Gita and Mahabharatha provide great examples to manage our daily lives. I was told that Philp Kotler used "Bhagvad-Gita" to write his books. I dont know how much of this is true.

We Indians have a wrong frame of mind to devote time to all these epics after retirement. Sitting in a balcony seeing our grand kids playing, we would like to read Mahabharatha!!!!

I would differ and say that these are stories that shape our lives to face the world of competition. We should read these epics and interpret it to our lives on an on-going basis.
Just to quote
1. Jarasandha - Who was accusing Krishna, got 100 chances to rectify. We must provide people enough scope and time (Chances) to correct them selves, then comes terminitaion. Which also shows that Krishna was counting loudly showing that feedback was provided at every instance.
2. Bheeshma dies because of human psychology. We tend to hear what we want and not what was told. An elephant dying was heard as Aswathamma dying. Here we see how people use words to manipulate things and present what is needed than what is true.
Just like saying. 700 titanic passangers reached the shore safely and not mentioning that the Ship was wrecked.

There are so many instances where these can be interpreted to today's context and used in our managerial lives. Since these come to us as stories, we tend to put names to faces and remember them easily.

I am planning to summarize these kinds of stories. Anyone who have similar experiences can share so that we can make this a modern epic.

Best regards

The glory of the Bhgavat Gita lies in its contemperoraneousness over the thousand os years. It has remained relevant all along and answers the quintessence of human nature. Despair and desolation are common in every one's life. Many accept defeat and readily give up life. How many of us can say that they have not thought of suicide as an option in crisis situtions. But Bhagavat Gita answers all that questions concerning the real existence and purpose of human life. It has had profound influence of many a leading minds of the humanity. And Management as a subject is very integral to human life. So there is lot to learn. This ppt. is a useful pointer and we are all obliged. Regards KK Nair
Excellent study.
Thanks for sharing this paper...
Many times what we learn from western theories are already there in our eastern thoughts which developed ages before. Its quiet unfortunate that we havent given importance to our ancient past especially the thoughts and philosophy developed by our old gurus...
I am so happy that some individuals of our time are taking trouble in studying our old heritage and bringing forth the hidden values and knowledge in it.
Great sharing.

In this aspect I would rather say that Bhagavat Geeta is a philosophy and Arjuna is a paradigm of somebody who is pursuit of his goals. But in a contemporary management scenario most of the time we face situation wherein we have to resort to affirmative actions rather than guidance, because major chunk of the employees as such has formed their road map to deal with their time and effort in consonance with their personal agendum. So when you envisage an organization, we cannot apply Bhagavad Geeta holistically.
