Professional manager, businessman...

Ajit Balakrishnan on mapping the Business Serengeti.Illustration: Dominic Xavier/Rediff.com The other day, when I was introduced at a conference as 'a businessman', I found myself squirming.

Since that moment I have been introspecting why the term 'businessman' seemed so much of a pejorative one to me. I realised that if I had been introduced as an 'entrepreneur' I would have been okay.   Was ...

Do you know how dangerous your smartphone is?

Are you an innocent smartphone user in a perilous online world, asks Geetanjali Krishna. Illustration: Dominic Xavier/Rediff.com It’s a jungle out there and we’ve no weapons! I often get the feeling that, as a society, we’re moving so fast that not only our cultural norms but also our laws are unable to keep up. Take cyber safety, for instance.

The lesson India must learn from Indore

The city is waging a war against garbage, says Anjuli Bhargava.Illustration: Dominic Xavier/Rediff.com On the face of it, Indore looks like just another unremarkable Indian town in central India. Unlike its less commercial cousin, Bhopal, Indore has little to offer in terms of visual beauty and charm. The fact that it is the commercial hub of Madhya Pradesh also isn’t evident to an outside observer. But don’t judge a book by its cover.   At this point in time, there is nothing ...

A minor fix in tax laws can make start-ups bloom, says Ajit Balakrishnan. Illustration: Dominic Xavier/Rediff.com. Last weekend a group of serious-faced men came to see me. When they called me, they’d said they needed some tips to make their venture to assist Indian start-ups successful, and I was only too happy to meet them. As soon as they came in, they eyed my dining table and, once there, spread out a large sheet of paper on which was a perspective drawing of a three-storeyed ...

Running to stay in the same place

We could be on the brink if our export industries actually start losing jobs, says Shreekant Sambrani. Illustration: Dominic Xavier/Rediff.com 'We did-they did' is how the discourse on the economic slowdown has quickly degenerated into a slanging match between premature doomsayers and equally unwarranted triumphalists. That is unfortunate. All such blame games are sordid. More importantly in this instance, they shift the collective attention away from the pressing need for action to deal with ...

What DeMo really achieved

Declaring demonetisation a complete failure may turn out to be hasty, argues economist Ashok K Lahiri.Illustration: Dominic Xavier/Rediff.com Demonetisation of the old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes -- specified bank notes (SBN) henceforth -- accounting for over four-fifth of currency in circulation on November 8, 2016, was described by critics as an 'all-India unannounced strike', 'organised loot and legalised plunder' and a hasty decision.

Great leaders never waste a crisis, Mr Modi

'We aren't so unreasonable as to demand that he should have fully reversed Indira Gandhi's worst economic legacy, bank nationalisation.''But he could have made a beginning by selling off the two most stressed small public sector banks, and then announced that each year for the next 10, one government bank with the most messed-up balance sheet will be sold.''It would have electrified the markets, shocked his other banks into better behaviour, and marked his name among the great reformers,' ...
