K. Raghavendra Rao

"I have always believed that ownership, business alliance, and management are three buckets that can coexist for a healthy growth of India Inc. Does this hold good post-Black Monday, March 17? In a practical sense, it seems difficult to have these three as distinct. What is the road ahead, then? If we make people see reason and go back to the earlier situation, the original paradigm, through introspection, education and guidance, we can see progress of enterprise and corporate Inc."
