The book presentation took place online and many management students attended the event. R. Gopalakrishnan and Dr Rajan Banerjee shared their views on the book and explained how Indian individuals in management can do better than individuals in developed countries.
While Mr. R. Gopalakrishan spoke about the history of Indian management education, Dr. Rajan presented the students with a comparative analysis of foreigners and Indians.
Mr. R. Gopalakrishnan said three very important points for management students: âThree ideas that I want to leave with you, first of all, that we are traders and have a long tradition of trading, but we are traders of ideas. Second, business enterprise management has a long history in our country, compared to Britain, compared to Germany, compared to Japan, except the United States compared to any other country . Third, we have a long tradition of âisationâ. ‘Indianization’ of administrative service âdating back to the days when government examinations were democratized.
According to Dr. Rajan Banerjee, Indians grow up in ambiguity. âWe are growing up in a situation where big aspects of the system are not working. So much so that sometimes we are surprised when the system works. The presence of ambiguous situations is increasing in the world and we Indians are better able to deal with the ambiguity, âsaid Mr. Rajan.
The book presentation was moderated by Dr Sahajanand Kamat, Assistant Professor, MPSTME Department of Civil Engineering, Mumbai NMIMS, and Ms Saitejasvi Deshmukh, 4e MBA Management of Technology student.
