Vidyarjan Nugget # 25: 12-min app

We are all pressed for time. Even though we want to read bestseller books, we do not find enough time to read those entire books. Sensing it as an opportunity, a Brazil-based startup offers a website and a mobile app to read summaries of primarily non-fiction books. Its free plan offers one microbook per day. Its paid plan offers more microbooks per day for reading and for listening!

The company claims that its team of experts writes original summaries that cover the most important ideas and concepts from the book. We have read some of the microbooks on the app and found them quite good. As of now, the collection of microbooks is not vast but contains really good picks. We would recommend to try out its app.

Vidyarjan Nugget # 24: A talk by Captain Raghu Raman

Our country has got a large unorganized sector, also called as informal sector. As no management graduates or consultants work in this sector, we may think that this sector must be poorly managed.

Captain Raghu Raman thinks otherwise. In a 32-minute talk, he has spoken at length about the management lessons corporate India can learn from informal sector of India. He has examined the minutest of details of the streets of India and shattered generally held myths against this sector.

Captain Raghu Raman spent eleven years as an officer in the Indian Armed Forces , followed by another eleven years in the corporate sector before joining the Government as CEO of the National Intelligence Grid. He is a great orator hence you will find his talk both informative and fascinating.
