This book is much more than a text on Indian Ethos and Management, a subject prescribed for courses in Management studies. It highlights the lessons that Indian tradition has for managers of the present and the future. Shorn of all mysticism, the book explains the message that thinkers of all ages have uniformly emphasized, as the essential dimensions of management of self and of the relationship to the environment. This is the core of Ethics, of Dharma and of Corporate Governance -
The Authors

This book weaves together the Indian Ethos and Management practices in a wonderful tapestry. The time honoured Indian concepts have been brought out in a brilliant manner that is easily understandable to everyone. The blending of concepts and day-to-day practices is indeed unique. The integration of all this into measures for personal effectiveness and leadership, as clearly brought out in the book, is most valuable. Altogether the book is an excellent effort and a much needed one in the present times, when there is a renewed interest on Ethics in Management.

The authors have rendered a valuable service to students and teachers of management, by writing this simple and lucid text, linking up Ethics, Indian Ethos and Management. It would be useful not only for the BBA, MBA and similar formal courses, but also for executive programmes of professional associations and in-company training. I would also commend it to the lay reader. Self-management is a universal human challenge, independent of one's job and source of livelihood. This book brings together thoughts from scriptures, behavioural sciences, management and life. It emphasizes the similarity of the core ethical guidelines of all religions.
