This series aims to narrate applications of principles of management as revealed in our ancient wisdom brought forth in our sacred books like ‘Gita’, ’Upanishads’, ‘Bible’ and ‘Quran’ to the future generation. We wish to start addressing our own students, belonging to different streams under our group of institutions.
