`Modern management concepts found in Tamil literature'

Our Correspondent

Madurai , Jan. 24

THOUGH languages may be different, concepts in management are universal and references to successful management abound in Tamil literature too, even from classical times, said the Managing Director of Visvas Promoters Pvt. Ltd, Mr S. Seetharaman, while inaugurating the Business Line Club at the Thiagarajar School of Management (TSM) here on Monday.

Modern concepts of management can be found in Tamil literature and they are very much relevant even today for aspirants who seek a successful career, he said while speaking on `Management in Tamil Literature'.

He said while a course on management might throw up an opportunity, success would come only to those who acquired the capacity and experience to add wealth to one's master, practicing ethical and righteous means. He should learn to do the right thing at the right time by entrusting and extracting the work from people. It must be realised that means are as important as the objectives.

He should always entertain lofty ideals and engage in tasks that do good to society at large, sacrificing his interest, if necessary, in the process. Transparency in thought, word and deed are the hallmarks of success must be realised.

Citing an instance in Kambaramayanam at the time of the coronation of Rama as the King of Ayodhya, he said narrow thinking should be avoided. One must be ready to bear the consequences of his action and accept any criticism of the action. A successful manager should always learn to win over the opponents and speak what must be said in a pleasant manner, he added.

Earlier, presiding over the meeting, the TSM Board member, Mr B.T Bangera, in his address, stressed that education had become a continuous learning process, lest one be pushed aside and overtaken, as innovation had become the key to success in a competitive world. It must be realised that real learning starts for the management students once they get out of the institutions and into the world outside.

Mr C. Narayanasamy, Senior Deputy Regional Manager (Circulation), The Hindu, was present.
