Management Education: A validity question

Management Education: A validity question

Sunday, 16 September 2018 | Pramod Pathak

Imagine a hypothetical situation. If the organisations and institutions world over had been managed more effectively, the leaders were more committed to the cause, and the people were more sincere, the world would have been a better place. But this has not happened despite the fact that we came up...

Technocracy and Dataitis

Sunday, 22 July 2018 | Pramod Pathak

The times are changing. Changing so fast that lewis Carroll sounds almost prophetic when he makes the queen quip to Alice in his classic Alice in Wonderland — “Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to...

The Forbidden Fruit

Sunday, 15 July 2018 | Pramod Pathak

To understand the primary objective of Yoga, Patanjali Yoga sutras are a valuable and authentic reference source. The “Yoga...

Sunday, 10 June 2018 | Pramod Pathak

The technological sophistication, the mechanical life style, the race for perfection, the search for formula 1, that is the best way of life has sapped humanness out of human beings. And slowly but painfully human beings are realising this. Given the fact that the essence of human beings is humanness,...
