Nevada (US), May 17 (ANI): Hindus have applauded Delhi Metro for reportedly giving copy of Bhagavad-Gita to its senior managers as a management-text and urged other international and domestic corporations in India to do the same.
Delhi Metro is said to be among the best urban transport systems in the world and its performance has been labeled "outstanding".
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord) unfolded the path to train the mind to accomplish flawlessness and distinction in action. It should be each executive's prized possession.
Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, further said that ancient Hindu epic Mahabharata (of which Gita was a part), besides other wisdom, was also a comprehensive manual on strategic management. Even the Panchatantra, through its tales, could teach effective leadership skills and ethics to modern managers.
Rajan Zed urged all the Indian Institutes of Management also to include Bhagavad-Gita as one of the texts in their MBA courses.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited, whose corporate culture is to project "we mean business" attitude, is headed by Chairman M. Ramachandran, while E. Sreedharan is the Managing Director. (ANI)
