Dear Anjana,

If I were supervising your MBA dissertation, I should want to question you
as to what you yourself were really looking for in this concept of

For instance, in classic texts, you could be looking at the question of
'leadership' by the Brahmin caste compared with the Kshatriya caste --
spiritual leadership and social compulsions.

Or in recent history, you could study the several resistance movements and
nationalist movements during the British Raj.
That should give some vivid examples of leadership and followership.

But 'leadership styles' seems a little nebulous. Are you looking for ancient
texts on rulership, or Indira Gandhi's public persona ?

Could you be more specific ?

Dear members,

I am currently researching Hindu texts addressing the theme of 'leadership'
, the most obvious one being the Mahabharatha.  This is for an MBA
dissertation and the theme is a comparison of leadership styles in Hindu
texts with modern 'western' concepts.

I was hoping that someone could suggest some useful texts handling this
topic or provide some ideas as to how to approach the subject matter.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated,  anjana
