"Anger is the unconquerable enemy of man and greed, the incurable disease" Yudhishthira had replied to the Yaksha. 

India seems not yet sensitised to the role of educational institutions in spread of technology driven enterprises.The R&D activities in most of our institutions of higher learning, by and large, continue to be lack-lustre pursuits plagued by meagre resources--both money and talent. Only now are we thinking of technology incubators in some institutions like the NIITs as a part of the start-up drive. We should have done this much earlier. 

Every technology cluster has a collection of great educational institutions. Silicon Valley got its start in 1939 when two Stanford University engineering graduates, William Hewlett and David Packard pooled $538 and founded Hewlett-Packard and they set up shop in a garage in nearby Palo Alto.

Gabbar Singh's-10 Great Management Lessons

Most of us know Gabbar Singh as the despicable villain of the greatest Bollywood movie ever made, Sholay.

But Gabbar was more than just a ruthless dacoit he was also a management and marketing genius.

While he wasn't terrorizing the helpless villagers of Ramgarh, he was giving management lessons in the Chambal School of Management.

1. Competitive Analysis

When Kaalia and his gang came back empty handed from Ram-Garh, the first thing Gabbar asked them was "Kitney aadmi the?" Like any great manager, he sought to find out about his competition.

2. Brand Building

Gabbar put it very nicely. When mums in a locality put their kids to sleep saying "Gabbar aa jayega," you're a bonafide marketing whiz!

3. Fair HR Practices

Before Gabbar Singh punished his subordinates, he thought that 6 bullets for 3 people would be unfair. "6 goli, aur aadmi teen, bahut nainsaafi hai!" So, to be fair, he removed three bullets from the revolver.

4. Seeking Feedback From Staff

When Gabbar is about to pop Kaalia, he doesn't just take a unilateral decision. Like a good democratic leader, he asks for opinions. "Tera kya hoga Kaaliya?"

5. Downsizing

No one likes to let go of their employees. But sometimes, you just have to bite the bullet and "fire" a few people. Gabbar Singh did exactly that when he shot all three of his subordinates after laughing like a maniac. "Jo darr gaya, samjho mar gaya!"

6. Clearing All Dues In Time

Thakur put Gabbar in jail. That didn't go down too well with Gabbar. So, he promised "Bahut pachtaugey Thakur, bahut pachtaogey." On escaping prison, Gabbar immediately proceeded to murder Thakur's entire family. Debt cleared.

7. Hostile Take-Overs

On discovering that Thakur's hands were really strong, Gabbar immediately wanted to have them for himself. "Ye haath, humko de de Thakur!" Even though Thakur was not willing to part with his most prized assets, Gabbar cut them off and took them anyway.

8. Employee Motivation

Gabbar wanted Basanti to dance, but she was feeling quite shy. Through close observation, he found out that Basanti and Veeru were madly in love with each other. "Bahut yaarana lagta hai." So, he motivated her to shake a leg by threatening to kill Veeru in front of her.

9. Performance Based Incentive Plans

To make sure that Basanti kept dancing, Gabbar linked her performance with her lover Veeru's life. "Jab tak tere pair chalengey, tab tak iski saans chalegi."

10. Never Underestimate Your Competition

Even Gabbar's mistakes are a lesson to any budding management graduate. He looked at the "un-armed" old man, laughed and said, "Tu kya ladega mujhse Thakur!" He shouldn't have, because Thakur then beat him to death with just his feet.

One of my friend had an interview

During interview one of the panelist asked him to sell his own briefcase to him at a very high price than the briefcase's market price. The market price told was Rs 5,000.

My friend got very confused.

But then he took a piece of paper and wrote his phone number and gave it to the panelist.

And then took his briefcase in his hand and ran away from the room.

Within minutes  the panelist got tensed and then called him.

My friend answered his phone and said "Sir sorry for the inconvenience caused. But if you want your briefcase back please pay Rs 30,000." He was selected.

Come and experience.
