Praxis, Business Line's journal on management, brings together a collection of essays and experiences of intrepid entrepreneurs and seasoned managers in this sunrise industry. From high-end research work to 24/7 call centres, the industry runs on the adrenalin of a young workforce. This issue looks at how young people cope with an anti-clockwise lifestyle.
