Contemporary dilemmas, whether in business or politics, bear uncanny resemblance to the predicaments witnessed in the ever-timely epic Mahabharata. Who else but Bhishma Pitamah then to the rescue of the modern-day manager, politician or bureaucrat when morality, greed and societal welfare vie with each other for primacy? In the epic, Bhishma is the upholder of truth and dharma, his life shaped by the difficult choices he makes. Of course, he isn t always infallible, but even where his decisions are questionable he serves as a role model. In this book, Prof. Balasubramanian uses this powerful figure and his selfless values as a guide to make the right choices. The Bhishma Way discusses values, dharma, truth, justice and governance in business and government. Analyses of real life cases among them, Union Carbide and the Bhopal gas tragedy, James Hardie and Asbestos in Australia and Ok Tedi in Papua New Guinea complement insightful mythological stories and anecdotes in this illuminating and thought-provoking book. This serves as an instructive read for anyone striving to a higher moral code in day-to-day decision making and leadership.
