About the Author: Devdutt Pattanaik

Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Business Sutra book, this is one of the most wanted Devdutt Pattanaik author readers around the world.


Business Sutra Why we do business impacts how we do it and what ultimately gets done As is belief, so is behavior, so is business This is Business Sutra, a very Indian way of doing business.It is very different from Management Science, taught in business schools around the world, which does not factor in belief, because belief is subjective truth, hence cannot be measured.Despite the veneer of objectivity, Management Science is rooted in Western belief Just as ancient Greeks celebrated Elysium, much cherished heaven of heroes, and the Bible speaks of the Promised Land, ultimate destination of faithful, Management Science is goal oriented, obsessed with vision, mission, objectives, milestones, and targets.By contrast, Business Sutra is gaze oriented Great value is placed on the practice of darshan how we see the world and our relationship with Lakshmi, goddess of wealth, whose image adorns Hindu homes, Jain temples and Buddhist stupas.If we believe that wealth is something that needs to be pursued, we end up turning the workplace into a rana bhoomi, a battleground of investors, regulators, employers, employees, vendors, competitors and customers.If we believe that wealth is something that needs to be attracted, we end up turning the workplace into a ranga bhoomi, a playground where everyone is happy.Communicated symbolically through the stories, symbols and rituals of India, which have been transmitted across the subcontinent for centuries, Business Sutra reveals a radically different approach to management, business, goverance, leadership, even economics and politics, that India seems to have forgotten, and the world has overlooked.Who better to unravel it than India s foremost mythologist, renowned speaker, columnist, author, leadership coach and Chief Belief Officer of Future Group, Devdutt Pattanaik.He reveals how Management Science is based on the assumption that the world is finite, certain, controllable and linear But in a global village, where everything is volatile and vibrant, there is need for a theory that is comfortable with infinity, diversity, uncertainty and non linear modes of thinking Hence, Business Sutra.

    When you think of mythology and management, it becomes very difficult to connect the two Doesn t it I am sure anyone would think it is impossible or close to being impossible, however that isn t the case for Dr Devdutt Pattanaik, who when speaks of mythology, does not consider it any different from daily living He doesn t categorize or compartmentalize the concept at all When Dr Pattanaik writes or talk of mythology, he weaves it seamlessly into what we call living He doesn t treat it any When you think of mythology and management, it becomes very difficult to connect the two Doesn t it I am sure anyone would think it is impossible or close to being impossible, however that isn t the case for Dr Devdutt Pattanaik, who when speaks of mythology, does not consider it any different from daily living He doesn t categorize or compartmentalize the concept at all When Dr Pattanaik writes or talk of mythology, he weaves it seamlessly into what we call living He doesn t treat it any different and may be that is the reason why...

    I long to be an entrepreneur and hence when BlogAdda presented with this opportunity I took it with both hands After constant rescheduling the delivery I finally got my hands on it I must say, its least than what I expected In the world of Kamasutra and Aam Sutra, Business Sutra leaves no stone unturned in simply following suit A voluminous 460 odd pages filled with illustrations on every second page you have to be ready to take on this one But if you re there for the taking then this book I long to be an entrepreneur and hence when BlogAdda presented with this opportunity I took...

    It is not a very usual experience that you read a book on management and you are gripped within its stories and intricacies Devdutt Pattanaik is definitely does that with no apologies Business Sutra looks at management through the Indian perspective The writer uses symbols, codes, stories from Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism to put forth his perspective He also uses the Mahabharata and Ramayana as the background as if he was born to tell the stories and break the myths to bring in a new point It is not a very usual experience that you read a book on management and you are gripped within its stories and intricacies Devdutt...
