On Inventing a New Manager

Authors: S.P.Srivastava
Comments: 8 Pages.

Management theory has not kept pace with developments of concepts in other fields especially in science. As a result, managers have gone out of tune with modern paradigm. Gerald Holton, a noted philosopher has observed that “…science has always generated an important part of our symbolic vocabulary and provided some of the metaphysical bases and philosophical orientations of our ideology”, in this light, development of management theories has been analyzed in this article in the context of evolving scientific thoughts especially quantum mechanics. It has been argued that there is a need for a new management concept which does not follow traditional style in the classical sense of “control and supervision” but adopts a new style which is in tune with quantum mechanical concept and follow “cooperate and contribute” philosophy.

India: a ‘Wiki’ Tale of Twenty Nine States

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 12 Pages.

After understanding the subtle difference between comprehensive and complete coverage of an entity in an encyclopedia, the present article poses the question: For an encyclopedia service such as Wikipedia, what does it take to ‘comprehensively’ describe a particular state of India, covering in reasonable detail all its diversity? In line with this thought, a simple exercise, consisting for searching for the number of occurrences of each district name in the article about its home state, was carried out. This is done for all state mentions in the article about India, as well as each district of the 29 states in the respective articles, sorted out in seven zones: Himalayas, North, Centre, West, South, East and Sisters. The article in particular focuses on significance of the capital in each state, quantified as the Rajdhani Effect, as well as districts not being mentioned anywhere in the article, quantified as the Zero Effect. With these points in consideration, the article explores the Wikipedia articles of each of the 29 states in India, searching for and studying the number of times each district features therein. The result is a different perspective on the states and on the entire country of India, understanding and highlighting the districts that have made a mark significant enough to feature in the ‘comprehensive’ Wiki tale of twenty nine states.

A Call for Our Ethical Responsibilities and Wisdom

Authors: Kunwar Jagdish Narain
Comments: 9 Pages.

We observe that, starting from our families to all over the world, the unrest, intolerance, corruption, crimes and militancy etc. are continuously growing on day by day despite all our efforts starting from social, spiritual, administration levels to all the possible levels. It is because, the root cause that is responsible for all these, we never tried to find out. The day, every member of every family starts thinking about his/her ethical responsibilities towards all the rest of the members of his/her family, his/her neighbors, citizens of his/her city and country etc., applying his/her wisdom - a special and very important gift with which God has blessed we all the human beings, unrest, intolerance, corruption, crimes and militancy etc. all shall start decreasing in place of growing.
