Is globalisation a perception? Is it about development? Or is it a mere imitation? Ideas on globalisation flew back and forth between three eminent panelists, CFO of Progeon Ramesh Kamath, writer Prof Ananthmurthy and brand specialist Harish Bijoor, at Straight Talk, a discussion organised by Centre of Management Studies, Sri Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain College, on Thursday, moderated by Janaagraha founder Ramesh Ramanathan.
Mr Kamath asserted that “India’s services export has galvanised India globally”, and making the ‘Made in India’ tag as a selling brand name.
Meanwhile, Jnanapeeta Award winner Prof Ananthmurthy took a stand against globalisation, blaming the country for mistaking “Americanisation” as globalisation and Mr Bijoor wanted globalisation to enhance the life of rural Indians.
