Ancient values for modern managers
What accounts for the sudden downfall of otherwise successful organisations? Are there any insights from the scriptures in this regard? In answer to these questions, Dr S. Kannan, a Chennai-based chartered accountant, and author of Vedic Management ( http://www.taxmann.com/), finds it apt to cite the maxim ‘Vinasa kale viparita buddhih,’ which in Sanskrit means that when one is on the path of destruction, his mind gets perverted. “This happens due to the negative vasanas (inherent impressions) of a person which suddenly manifest and show the true colours,” he explains during the course of a recent email interaction with Business Line.
