Sambhar Mafia - Cooked To Kill!

The Bangalore “High-Flyers” Club

No more reckless spending says Vijay Mallya. Does it mean that he’ll stop publishing the annual swimsuit calendar?

Apart from Vijay Mallya, the only other guy (?) who probably owns private jets in Bangalore is Rajeev Chandrashekar. Rajeev has a pilot license and flies regularly between B'lore and Coimbatore to attend to business issues. Although the IT majors like Wipro and Infy could probably afford private jets for their top management, they are unlikely to do so given their low appetite for flashy attitude. The world wants to know what Rajeev is going to do with all the money he is going to receive from Hutchison Essar. Business Standard caught up with him recently. Controversial questions like his tiff with father-in-law TPG Nambiar have been avoided. I hope he doesn't drive his Ferrari during Bangalore's peak hour.
With one Cessna 172 and a P68 that he flies once a fortnight, a Harley Davidson, a Lamborghini and a Ferrari that he drives early in the morning on the Ring Road in Bangalore on weekends since he likes "to feel the wind in my face," BPL Communication's chief is not your run of the mill businessman. "I'd have been a biker if I wasn't in telecom," he says.

Nor is he your average sports enthusiast, though he has Michael Schumacher's overalls in an airtight case "so you can even smell his sweat" and the helmet Ayrton Senna used in the crash before he died.

  • In this modern world the art of Management has become a part and parcel
    of
    everyday life, be it at home, in the office or factory and in
    Government. In
    all organizations, where a group of human beings assemble for a common
    purpose irrespective of caste, creed, and religion, management
    principles
    come into play through the management of resources, finance and
    planning,
    priorities, policies and practice. Management is a systematic way of
    carrying out activities in any field of human effort. Management need
    to
    focus more on leadership skills, e.g., establishing vision and goals,
    communicating the vision and goals, and guiding others to accomplish
    them.
    It also assert that leadership must be more facilitative, participative
    and
    empowering in how visions and goals are established and carried out.
    Some
    people assert that this really isn't a change in the management
    functions,
    rather it's re-emphasizing certain aspects of management.
