Management as a course of study and lifetime career is aspired to across the globe today, spanning technical, economic, and cultural frontiers. Perhaps this is so because the principles of sound management remain constant through changes in time and space.
Three thousand years ago, on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, Lord Krishna propounded the seed truth of effective management in lilting verse, allegory and cold, hard-headed pragmatism. Macro- and micro- organizational principles as effective today as then, were encapsulated in the Bhagavadgeeta. This book is an attempt to interpret some of the many-splendoured glories of the Geeta, the context being the realistic management of modern enterprise.
