This is the story of the carefully planned resurgence of
the State Bank of India (SBI) from a laid-back incumbent
under threat from private players to a customer-oriented
competitive organization that has outperformed rivals
despite several constraints. The leadership at SBI
succeeded in reshaping perspectives and profitability at
the bank, which employs a staggering 200,000 people,
notwithstanding salary restrictions and regulatory
bottlenecks. While the primary thrust was on changing
employee attitude towards their own organization and, of
course, its customers, the transformation exercise was
broad-based, encompassing fundamental changes in
technology, processes and business-mix alike.

The authors present a powerful and tested approach that
helps managers see a business’s every action through the
eyes of its customers. This approach is organized around
the values that matter most to customers: Acceptability,
Affordability, Accessibility and Awareness. Taken
together, these attributes are called the "4A-s." The 4A
framework derives from a customer-value perspective based
on the four distinct roles that customers play in the
market: seekers, selectors, payers and users. The authors
demonstrate how looking at the world through the 4A lens
helps companies avoid marketing myopia (an excessive
focus on the product) as well as managerial myopia (an
excessive focus on process).

Images of environmental disaster and degradation have
become part of our everyday media diet. This visual
culture focusing on environmental deterioration
represents a wider recognition of the political,
economic, and cultural forces that are responsible for
our ongoing environmental crisis. And yet efforts to
raise awareness about environmental issues through
digital and visual media are riddled with irony, because
the resource extraction, manufacturing, transportation,
and waste associated with digital devices contribute to
environmental damage and climate change. Screen Ecologies
examines the relationship of media, art, and climate
change in the Asia-Pacific region -- a key site of both
environmental degradation and the production and
consumption of climate-aware screen art and media.

This is the moving story of a nonviolent hero,
illustrated with more than 70 photographs, and told by a
highly respected author who grew up in Gandhi-s India.
Gandhi-s life continues to inspire and baffle readers
today. How did an unsuccessful young lawyer become the
Mahatma, the "great soul" who led 400 million Indians in
their struggle for independence from the British Empire-
What is nonviolence, and how does it work- Easwaran
answers these questions and gives a vivid account of the
turning points and choices in Gandhi-s life that made him
an icon of nonviolence. Easwaran witnessed at firsthand
how Gandhi inspired ordinary people to turn fear into
fearlessness, and anger into love. He visited Gandhi in
his ashram to find out more about this human alchemy, and
during the prayer meeting watched the Mahatma absorbed in
meditation on the Bhagavad Gita, the scripture that was
the wellspring of his spiritual power.
** Gandhi, Mahatma, 1869-1948
