Description : This book focuses on the small car segment of India's automotive industry to explain the emergence of lead markets. The authors contend that the current understanding of lead markets does not sufficiently explain the business practices that are born out of the intensified globalization of innovation. Lead markets are considered crucial for the global diffusion of new products and this book investigates whether sustainable lead markets can also emerge in developing economies, and if so, under which conditions. The authors question the conventional wisdom and propose updates and extensions to the lead market theory to better reflect the changing ground realities on ground.

Description : The promotion of an enterprise culture and entrepreneurship in India in recent decades has had far-reaching implications beyond the economy, and transformed social and cultural attitudes and conduct. This book brings together pioneering research on the nature of India’s enterprise culture, covering a range of different themes: workplace, education, religion, trade, films, media, youth identity, gender relations, class formation and urban politics. Based on extensive empirical and ethnographic research by the contributors, the book shows the myriad manifestations of enterprise culture and the making of the aspiring, enterprising-self in public culture, social practice, and personal lives, ranging from attempts to construct hegemonic ideas in public discourse, to appropriation by individuals and groups with unintended consequences, to forms of contested and contradictory expression. It discusses what is ‘new’ about enterprise culture and how it relates to pre-existing ideas, and goes on to look at the processes and mechanisms through which enterprise culture is becoming entrenched, as well as how it affects different classes and communities. The book highlights the social and political implications of enterprise culture and how it recasts family and interpersonal relationships as well as personal and collective identity. Illuminating one of the most important aspects of India’s current economic and social transformation, this book is of interest to students and scholars of Asian Business, Sociology, Anthropology, Development Studies and Media and Cultural Studies.

Description : “Technology for Revolution: Opportunity for a New Religion and a New Society” is a treatise on religious and social reform. It is an attempt to create a route map to a HAPPY, HEALTHY, PEACEFUL, PROGRESSIVE, PROSPEROUS, CREATIVE AND CONSTRUCTIVE world. The book advocates that ultimate social peace and individual mental bliss and freedom cannot be achieved without adopting a spiritual way of life with a sense of justice. It explores the issues with which the human society is afflicted at present and then goes on to suggest a new model of governance and administration utilizing the opportunities made available by the changes in the information and communication technology. The author suggests that the root cause of almost all the sociopolitical issues are linked to the degeneration and corruption in the religious and spiritual values resulting in an overall degradation of the social ethics. It delves deep into the issue of corruption and degeneration of all the religious practices across the globe. It exposes how religious practices have completely abandoned Truth, God and Spirituality and has embraced blatant commercialism in the name of God and faith. It then explores the effects of this spiritual and religious degeneration in the sociopolitical and administrative arena taking examples and references mainly from the Indian society. Having explored the problem and its root cause in detail, the book presents a comprehensive universal and global manifesto for governance and administration applicable to the humanity as a whole. It combines the concepts of social and economic justice of Karl Marx, the concepts of Ram Rajya of Mahatma Gandhi, the concepts of human equality of Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr and the concepts of universal brotherhood and global citizenship. It then blends them all with the spiritual teachings of Buddha, Socrates, Kabir and Osho Rajneesh. The universal and global manifesto for humanity as a whole presented in this book envisions the creation of a happy, healthy, peaceful, progressive, prosperous, creative and constructive world. The ideals and optimism projected through this manifesto might initially appear to be “Utopian” in nature; however, considering the opportunities made available by the advancements in technology in general and information and communication technology in particular and after going through the detailed explanations presented with every point in the manifesto, a reader may feel compelled to add his own efforts towards the goals envisioned in this book. The innovative solutions suggested in the manifesto eliminates the need to have departments like the anti-corruption, vigilance, election observers, tax collection departments etc. in government and administration and would automatically cleanup the muck in politics and public life. The book also has the potential to generate controversy as it has ruthlessly dissected the commercialism, irrationality and evils in almost all the major religious practices across the globe. The author is aware of the dangerous consequences as a result of his direct attack on the people running their massive business empires in the name of religion; however, he seems to be prepared to face the consequences similar to what Socrates, Meera or Mansur al Hallaj had to face. Considering what Salman Rushdie or Taslima Nasreen had to go through for much more subtle expressions, the author is likely to be inviting a serious trouble for himself despite his pious and altruistic motives behind writing whatever he has presented through this book.

Description : Pramukh Swamiji, one of the most inspiring spiritual leaders of modern times and the fifth spiritual successor of Bhagwan Swaminarayan, is the inheritor of a legacy of enlightened gurus that goes back to the early nineteenth century. Pramukh Swamiji became, through a chance meeting, friend to one of India's most eminent citizens, the eleventh president of India, Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, and together they created an unparalleled fellowship of science and spirituality. In Paratpar, Dr Kalam, with his co-author and pupil Arun Tiwari, maps a journey of self-realization reflected in the compassionate eyes of Pramukh Swamiji, painting a delightfully open-hearted portrait of the fusion of spirituality, science and leadership. His candid vignettes from life on the centre stage of Indian technology and societal missions, Indian politics and world affairs are interwoven with revelations of a profound connection with Swamiji. He describes how his path has been illuminated by Swamiji's words and his inspirational, loving presence. Through the life of Pramukh Swamiji and the transnational work of the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha, Dr Kalam traces the contemporary concerns of the Indian diaspora across the world and the emerging Indian identity of a capable, right-thinking and hardworking people. Drawing from the lives of great scientists and creative leaders, Paratpar captures the essence of all religions and is as much a fountain of inspiration and a treasury of wisdom as it is a tribute to the multi-faith, pluralistic Indian society.
