LESSONS FOR A STUDENT OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT FROM THE DELHI ELECTIONS (First Published on Feb 10th 2014 on Facebook)

Lessons for a student of Business Management from the Delhi elections:
  1. Global Gas doesn't take you far. 
  2. Expensive suits, with your name emblazoned on it, are no match for ordinary mufflers. 
  3. Verbal diarrhea, including mindless tag lines, are useless. 
  4. Your father, grandmother & great grandfather may have been CEOs, but pedigree means nothing if you are a born ass.
  5. Find a scapegoat for your failure much in advance. A Ms. 'Saari Galti Iski' helps. 
  6. Idioms can get you to power once, not always. 
  7. Choose your friends wisely, avoid a bunch of rabble rousers. 
  8. Condemn stupid acts by your friends. 
  9. Don't overestimate the power of social media; sometimes it operates as a megaphone for idiots. 
  10. Respect people, they are more intelligent than you credit them for.
