The article “What they don't teach you at Indian B-schools” (March 7) is a polemic discussion that contradicts itself and is logically incongruous. While everyone is feeling the repercussions of globalisation and the resultant impact of a shrinking universe, the beaten monochromatic argument on shunning western concepts in favour of oriental thinking holds no water. It is a global village today, thanks to the inroads made by information technology and where an earth divided on the grounds of socio-economic-cultural factors is fading into obscurity. This is pretty evident from the author's suggestion of so-called innovative alternatives for the Indian Railways, which essentially stems from his western experience.
