Please enjoy reading four stars reviews from Self-Publishing Review for The Modern Mughal Mentality:
"Fascinating and instructive, and it might be very wise of western, and particularly American, businesses to pay attention. Many of Hashmi's examples are amusing. The book presents a wonderful glimpse into a culture many westerners are mostly unfamiliar with. It makes surprisingly good reading for a business guide, and well may open readers' eyes to much more than just the principles of Jugaad." Self-Publishing Review, 4 Stars

The Modern Mughal Mentality idea how it came to me:

When I left India for the United States, my father told me that I was fulfilling my destiny and both of their dreams. He wanted his only daughter Afshan to write a book in America that would not only demonstrate her knowledge, but change the world. With tall orders to follow, I immediately embraced his dream, and imagined myself becoming the ultimate authority for American business travelers to India. For the past several years I have been working on this dream.

Today, India is a rising giant and now known to be one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. For the full fiscal year 2014/2015, the Indian government estimated that the economy would expand 7.4%. This represents a significant acceleration over the revised 6.9% increase for the fiscal year 2013/2014 previously reported: +5.8% (The Indian government revised the previous data series to reflect new methodology and a change in the base year). Thus I saw the potential and timeliness of the project. Even though my inspiration was India, I knew that my business philosophies would translate well, not only in my own consulting business to help my clients, but I began to see a correlation between the way that I had consistently applied Jugaad in my business practices and my high level of achievement. I seemed to excel at whatever I did. I believed that interpreting my business philosophies could fill a void in the current business manual market. I started to notice examples of Jugaad in all sectors in my daily live in the United States.
Finally, I decided that there should be a template for all companies to improve their bottom lines. This led me to create the Jugaad Management Principle, a new business model which can inspire “out of the box” thinking and innovative strategies to stay ahead in today’s market. As I worked on the book, I began to implement the new business model, and witnessed the transformation of many businesses.

Afshan Hashmi Dear friends
Greetings
Hope you all are doing fine. I am launching a book club online. so sending this for who ever is interested :on April 20. 10.30am USA eastern time
Also the following is the time zone clock to calculate your time in Rockville , Maryland USA area
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

The book I have chosen is following:
http://www.amazon.com/The-Billionaire...
The way it will work is that everyone reads the same book before coming to the session or should have some information about the book and then discuss the book in an informal discussion mode, I will put up some questions to the group and then group can discuss those questions . It will totally be an interactive session. Some experts are also invited to through light on the questions. One person will get to speak at a time. If everybody doesnot get a chance and if the group wants then a Followup session of the same book will be organized at a later date So gearup friends for a very stimulating discussion!!!!

Cheers friends!!!!
Dr. Afshan Hashmi
