Business

A business (also known as enterprise or firm) is an organization engaged in the trade of goods, services, or both to consumers. Businesses are predominant in capitalist economies, where most of them are privately owned and administered to earn profit to increase the wealth of their owners.

Aarush Kumar - Meera Sanyal; Jhaaduwali ex-banker
Why I feel a li’l worried for Meera Sanyal…Let’s face it, SOBO generates very mixed feelings , not just in the rest of Mumbai, but across India. South Mumbai does exude a very specific vibe – you either get it… are a part of it… or you don’t. Meera Sanyal, the polished, sophisticated, well-educated banker , with declared assets of 50 crores, is  very SOBO. She is also the AAP candidate from South Mumbai. Meera really ought to be ‘the one’ most likely to win from this elite more »

The secret sauce of managing 20-somethings
What's about these 20-somethings at the workplace that talent managers find so challenging? On a recent visit to India, Kevin Kelly, the Global CEO of executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles, was told by his clients in India that leadership from the perspective of Generation Y is one of the big challenges facing organisations. It is a global worry, he says. This generation, born between 1978 and 2005, will have 14 jobs by the time they are 38 years of age. “How can you drive s more »

The Problem With Indian Movie Theatres
The problem with Indian movie theatresWith all the piracy that’s doing the rounds, you would think that movie theatres would be a concerned lot. Sure, they’re always on the lookout for someone recording their show (penalties for a movie theatre that ‘allows’ someone to record a movie on a video camera are absurdly high).
