More than a century back, Swami Vivekananda said in Colombo: ‘‘To many, Indian thought, Indian manners, Indian customs, Indian philosophy, Indian literature are repulsive at the first sight; but let them persevere, let them read, let them become familiar with the great principles underlying these ideas.’’ This appropriately applies to the Indian management thought, customs and traditions in Indian industrial giants (like those in the Tata Group), Indian management philosophy, and the Indian literature on management. It is a pity that the vast treasure of knowledge and wisdom which Indian scriptures contain, and the vital contributions of mighty management minds of India have not come into prominence.
Keeping this in view, an endeavor has been made in the present volume to highlight and evaluate the contributions of mighty management minds of India from the eternal Lord Krishna to the contemporary Professor S. K. Chakraborty. The book incorporates teachings of the Gita, containing divine words emanating from the lips of God Himself, which are of great relevance to Indian management. The book throws light on the management concepts included in the Chanakya’s magnum opus, ‘Arthashastra’.
The trusteeship concept propounded by Mahatma Gandhi, the management thoughts and philosophies of J.R.D. Tata, G.D.Birla, Ramkrishna Bajaj, S.L.Kirloskar, Bharat Ram, Charat Ram, Dhirubhai Ambani, Ratan Tata, professional stalwarts T. Thomas and Prakash Tandon, and of noted Indian writers Sharu Rangnekar, Udai Pareek, Dharni Sinha, T.V.Rao and S.K.Chakraborty have been included in the book.

Indian managers and students, researchers and teachers of management will find this volume extremely useful and a unique one.
