Gita and management

Dharma is a very complicated Hindu concept. In this episode, I discuss this idea with Professor B.Mahadevan

Professor B. Mahadevan has taught at the Indian Institute of Management for over 20 years. His research interests include supply chain management in electronic markets. He teaches an elective on how to apply lessons from the Bhagavad Gita into management. The course, he says, demonstrates how religious, spiritual and secular ideas coexist in Gita and how they can address some of the issues we face in the contemporary society in a wholesome manner. Today, Professor Mahadevan is with us to talk about a compelling concept in Hindu philosophy: the notion of Dharma.

Professor Mahadevan taught me a few useful tools for time management. He says that he allows people to contact him three times before responding– this filters out the casual visitor from the truly interested. He “forgets” to carry his phone quite often. Rarely gives out his number. Will try to practice a couple of these.
