COUNT YOUR CHICKENS BEFORE THEY HATCH

Script Your Success Story!

The book 'Count Your Chickens Before They Hatch' is for all individuals who want to achieve super success in life… it is about counting your chickens before they hatch, because successful people do not wait for things to happen, they make things happen. The book presents principles of success through a wide range of issues like passion at work, motivating people and winning friends, effective communication and leading extraordinarily. The book also makes an interesting and lucid illustration of the India-centric 'Theory i Management'developed by Prof. Chaudhuri himself. The book extensively employs winning experiences and illustrations of a myriad of success icons-from Mahatma Gandhi to Martin Luther King, from Mr. Honda to Fidel Castro, from Stevie Wonder to Sir Don Bradman…from Swami Vivekanand to Gautam Buddha. The section on 'Theory i Management' draws liberal inspirations from the cultural nuances of India and the life experiences of Mahatma Gandhi and Lord Krishna in Mahabharata to develop principles of success for an India specific management model. Adds Prof. Chaudhuri, "Inspite of having the best talent pool in the world, our organisations have not been doing well. One of the most significant reasons for the failure of Indian management has been our failure to develop an indigenous management style, which revolves around our cultural roots and upbringing. Theory 'i' is an attempt to understand and define the Indian worker just like the Japanese had tried to do with their Theory 'Z'."


THE GREAT INDIAN DREAM

Restoring Pride to a Nation Betrayed

THE GREAT INDIAN DREAM Malay Chaudhuri & Arindam Chaudhuri for years now have been working together on presenting an alternative budget to the government of India each year. Their efforts now take the shape of a book in "The Great Indian Dream". "The Great Indian Dream" is an effort by the authors to take economics to the layman. The authors believe that while economics and economic policies effect the lives of the layman, the study and understanding of the same has deliberately been complicated, mathematised and kept restricted to a limited few. The book is divided into three parts. In the first chapter, called 'India Betrayed - Looking Local' the book traces the Indian economic development in comparison with the rest of the world over the last 50 years and more. In a forthright and academically justified manner the authors analyse and critically tear apart the entire process of Indian development and the lack of political will which has kept the majority of the masses in a state of abject poverty comparable to sub Saharan African standards. In the second chapter, called 'Happy Capitalism - Thinking Global' the book propagates Arindam's concept of Happy Capitalism. This path breaking effort tries to talk about an ideal economic system in order to achieve "The Great Indian Dream". It compares the inhuman aspects of the modern day market oriented capitalist system non conducive to human happiness with the ideal system that the global economies should thrive for. It calls for the adoption of absolutely original and iconoclastic concepts of Survival of the Weakest, Trickle-up Theory and the Law of Increasing Marginal Utility in an attempt to propagate limits to growth for a happier society. It is the third chapter, called 'The Great Indian Dream' where the book comes out as an entirely different experience from many other books which have analysed the state of the Indian economy due to the fact that it also gives possible solutions to the identified problems. This is where Malay Chaudhuri's years of research and experience shows up along with his passion for the masses. The authors have almost worked like a mini planning commission giving alternate resource mobilization techniques as well as their uses and tried to show how a 14% growth rate is feasible. This is where the book really scores. It ends with "The Great Indian Dream"… a vision for a great Indian revival. Professor Chaudhuri is the Dean, Centre for Economic Research & Advanced Studies at IIPM (The Indian Institute of Planning & Management, New Delhi). In the year 1996 he founded Planman Consulting.
