      1. I am not sure if this space is big enough for me to answer that question. I have addressed some of it in a book chapter titled, The Role of Hinduism in Global India and her Business Ethics. In Capaldi, N, (Eds.), Business and Religion: A Clash of Civilizations? Salem, MA:M&M Scrivener Press. 379-389. Should you have further specific questions, I would love to answer them.

      1. We do not teach Sanskrit at IIML. If you are referring to Sanskrit that I use in my research/classes/courses, it comes out of my personal interest and the love for the language. You are welcome to call me up and have a chat; I have blanked out your number from the public forum but I do have it saved. All the best.

    3. Hello sir,
      I have a doubt. Could you please help me.

      I want to prepare for CAT exam. My academics are not so good, 10th (BSEB board) – 62.2%, 12th (BSEB Board) – 64.8%, B.Tech(CSE) – 70% and extra curicular activity are also less.
      Considering obc category, how much percentile we score in cat to get oldest iim (ABCKLI).

      1. Hello Sourav,
        There is no set formula by which one can suggest you about the percentile needed to get admission into an older IIM or to even predict if it were even possible given your academic scores of the past. I would recommend you look at the criteria of the individual IIMs (all IIMs have different criteria for admission) in terms of weights given to different criteria and figure out which ones you could realistically target. Next, give your best attempt to CAT and then move ahead accordingly. All the best.
