Mohanty argues in her literary work, Under Western Eyes, that Western feminists should be more perceptive on the political suggestions of their literatures on non-western women. Western feminist’s views of non-western women are often shaped by presumptions about women and feminist ideals that might connect a certain colonial authoritative connection between the “first world” and other countries. Mohanty points out the common errors in western feminist’s writing, without arguing that any studies on “third world” women by western researchers are unrelated. Without making the mistakes that Mohanty is arguing against, she provides examples of studies that are related. Mohanty doesn’t only focus on what other researchers are doing wrong but provides a good example of what constitutes to good research in her own opinion. Mohanty points out that more than often; western feminists tend to view all women as having the same goal throughout the world which is the feminist movement. This movement often suggests that there is a transnational male-controlled collusion against women, which all “sensible women” should want to resist against in the same way and that these women should become self- capable, in control over their own bodies, and non-religious. Simply put, these women should become like the classical image that “first-world” feminists portray themselves. This process of thinking often overlooks that there is no such thing as a class of “women” outside of cultural, chronological, and socio-economical environments. Rather, the classification of women is “created” within these constructions, which associates that authoritative relations between the sexes might work otherwise in changed circumstances. For example, Mohanty points out that this has implications for the way we view women in the Middle-East. She explains first that it is rather too informal to express of…...

Suman Sekhar Pradhan, PGDM 2012-14, Roll No 22 * This is a clear evidence of a case, from a condition where out of 12,11 members were against a decision and suddenly due to some understanding the ratio changes dynamically to 12 voting for the decision."Ek Ruka Hua Faisla" very convincingly depicts the switch. It achieves this by staying true to the realities of group dynamics.  * Here the objective of the group is to decide whether the boy is convict or not, once their objective is fixed, they start with a vote based on individual decisions. Though, the vote is 11-1 in favor of Convict. * Some of the members look around before raising their hands – and, as it turns out, these are the first to switch their votes. The old man is the last to raise his hand – probably to avoid being an odd one out – and is first to switch his opinion, i.e. to support the Devil's Advocate and no real persuasion is needed. * It is interesting to note that the first turnaround in the voting happens during a secret vote.

...as a result they are inviting more and more investments by allowing foreign investors to invest in their land. There are several factors that help or hinder the economic growth of a country, and the factors, that are often identified as stimulants (World Investment Report UNCTAD, 1994) for a country’s growth are: (1) Large amounts of investment capital, (2) Advanced Technologies, (3) Highly skilled labor, (4) Well-developed transportation and communication infrastructure, (5) Stable and supportive political and social institutions, (6) Low tax rates, and (7) Favorable regulatory environment. Differences in the growth rates of the countries are explained by the differences in the endowments or levels of these factors (Dondeti and Mohanty, 2007). FDI has long been recognized as a major source of technology and know-how to developing countries. Indeed, it is the ability of FDI to transfer not only production know- how but also managerial skills that distinguishes it from all other forms of investment, including portfolio capital and aid. While foreign portfolio investment may, in some cases, contribute to the capital formation in a developing country, often, the capital flows via this route are limited, and above all, they do not provide the advanced technologies needed to compete in the world markets. FDI can accelerate growth in the ways of generating employment in the host countries, fulfilling saving gap and huge investment demand and sharing knowledge and......

Feminism

...oppression, has marginalized women in postcolonial societies. They challenge the assumption that gender oppression is the primary force of patriarchy. They object to portrayals of women of non-Western societies as passive and voiceless victims and the portrayal of Western women as modern, educated, and empowered. Today, they struggle to fight gender oppression within their own cultural models of society rather than through those imposed by the Western colonizers. They, thus, react against both universalizing tendencies in Western feminist thought and a lack of attention to gender issues in mainstream postcolonial thought. Some postcolonial feminists, such as Chandra Talpade Mohanty and Black feminists, such as Angela Davis and Alice Walker, are critical of Western feminism for being ethnocentric. Chandra Talpade Mohanty criticizes Western feminism on the ground that it does not take into account the unique experiences of women from third-world countries or the existence of feminisms indigenous to third-world countries. This discourse is strongly related to African feminism and is also associated with concepts such as black feminism, womanism, Africana womanism, motherism, Stiwanism, negofeminism, chicana feminism, and femalism. Pro-feminism is the support of feminism without implying that the supporter is a member of the feminist movement. The term is most often used in reference to men who are actively supportive of feminism and of their efforts to bring about gender......

...to find creative solutions through an evaluated give-and-take based on needs, not demands. Furthermore, as the parties get close to an agreement, the process needs to anticipate potential challenges to its implementation in order to avoid the failed promises of the past. Being trained in communication and relationship-building techniques is essential for creating the necessary psychological safety at the table for frank and path-breaking discussions, especially given the harsh rhetoric in public spheres. Physical safety is the second factor. Naxalites have never been allowed to negotiate directly because of this dilemma. How to negotiate with a banned party without lifting the ban? Naxalite negotiator and trade union leader Dandapani Mohanty suggests that imprisoned Maoists be brought in under police custody to negotiate on behalf of the party rather than roping in members of civil society who are removed from the realities of the parties’ interests. Finally, the hostage negotiators can work with their counterparts to develop a set of procedures for how they define an agenda, carry out negotiations, and ensure that agreements are implemented. The government negotiators can be continuously training their counterparts through the examples that they set and building faith on both sides. The Home Ministry recently declared that the year 2012 had seen the lowest number of incidents of violence involving Maoists under UPA rule, with the “lowest” amounting to 1,365 recorded......

Illegal Immigration

...services over their lifetime. (Mohanty. 2005) Why should we deny these immigrants who are willing to support the American dream to be healthy and provided a better education, things we Americans hold important to living a human life? America is made of immigrants, and now we are shunning them? In the past, immigrants held the ideas that made America great. "Immigrants come to America for many reasons, but mainly they come because it's a land of opportunity and upward mobility where achievement is more important than inheritance. Uprooting themselves from the familiarity of family, community, and even language and culture, they are self-selected risk takers." (Zuckerman 2009.) Why should we keep these immigrants the possibility of a better future for themselves and their children? It is not fair that these immigrants cannot enter the U.S while immigrants in the past were allowed to come without questioning, and become a U.S citizen and live the American dream. In conclusion, the way that illegal immigration is handled in America is a serious social injustice issue and it is our responsibility as Americans to help put a stop to this unfair treatment of these innocent people. Too many immigrants are being banned from America, and many immigrants who moved illegally are being banned only to suffer more, and so we need to be American and help them out. Reference Mohanty, S.

Bank of America has not always been a learning organization. The development of the Innovation and Development team signifies their commitment to becoming a learning environment. One of the Innovation & Development teams’ goals is to create new ways to improve customer service and grow revenue. The sole reason for the creation of the department is to change behaviors of the other branches based on the findings of the Innovation & Development branches. Although Bank of America has not always embraced change they are making great strides to help them compete in a competitive industry locally and globally. Mohanty, K., & Kar, S. (2012).

...and dependability. The interpretation is that such systems must satisfy all user requirements as defined by the users. Such characteristics are important in meeting the organization’s objectives. The result of software engineering, therefore, is an efficient and reliable software system. The precise definition of functional and non-functional requirements forms one of the main sections in the software development lifecycle that presents a challenge to developers. Definition of such requirements is essential for meeting both business and system performance objectives. Software requirements detail the main functions that the system must aim to fulfill. They represent the user’s expectations of the real-world system features (Mishra and Mohanty, 2012). Usability is the main feature of any software system under development that demonstrates the system as understandable and usable to the users under specified conditions. Challenges encountered in the different phases of the software development cycle, if not properly managed, may lead to poor usability in software systems a feature that significantly contributes to software failure. Types of Requirements in Software development Requirements form the basic functionalities that any system under development must satisfy in order for it to be a success. The two main types of requirements in software development include: a) User requirements: these describe the services provided by the system including the operational......

Fourthly, the organization should employ economists and auditors to ensure that the expenses that the organization ventures into are worth and viable. They will also ensure that there is a reduced expense, yet again spending on essential matters. Expanding the organization is also an area where the organization needs to focus. Last but not least, the religious health care organization though it is a non-profit making; the financial autonomy of the organization is of great importance. Therefore, I needs to device other ways of raising money. These would include such methods as starting other investments such as hotels where they can raise funds to run the organization (Mohanty, 2012). As stated earlier, the fact that religious healthcare is a non-profit making organization, there is every reason of considering the fact that there are other similar institutions in the market. Therefore, completion is a factor that can be looked at deeply. The organization then needs to focus on the following three performance dimensions (Mair, & Wood, 1976). Environmental condition The managing directors can be able to measure their performance through the consideration of the environment within which they are working. If it is not favorable, then it is clear that something need to be done. If it is, it means that there is a smooth flow of work. They can then look for ways to maintain of improve......

...lifestyles of the citizens. The societies become healthier and knowledgeable since the states can adequately offer quality education, training and research to the citizens since the nation does not have to heavily tax its citizens to finance some basic needs. (Mohanty, 2007) This means that the countries can continue subsidizing production process, lower the costs of capital, and offer other incentives necessary for the economic growth of the economies In conclusion, the FDI positively affect all the areas identified as the requirements for economic growth of the BRICK countries. It creates a large pool of capital for investments, result to highly skilled labor and improved technology and infrastructure. It also results to stabilized social-political status, legal environment suitable for production as well as favorable taxations. With all these growth factors being positive, the GDP of these countries will therefore continue growing exponentially. Reference Khan, G. A. (2011).

Third World Women

...western culture – and “them”, the backward and primitive culture of the “Third World” countries (Walley, C.J 1997:409). This discourse introduces women of the “Third World” as consistent group within context, apart from their class and ethnicity.  The consequence of such understanding of “Third World” women within the western discourse is characterising these women as “subjects” or “phenomena” out of the economic, legal, social, and religious and kinship structures of their communities, (Chandra Talpade, Mohanty. 1988: 78 – 80). Furthermore, “Third world women” have been presented based on their gender therefore secondary to men, and as being from the “Third World” and therefore secondary to the first world, thus they were considered ignorant, poor, domestic, victimized and tradition-bound. On the other side, this image was important to present western women as self-represented, educated, and free in making decisions and having control over their bodies (Chandra Talpade, Mohanty 1998:80), Such discourse has been seen as a justification of the great powers in particular the British and the French during the colonisation and imperialism era (Walley, C.J 1997:423), and paved the way for them to develop and educate and have power over people of the “Third World”. There is a certain brand of feminist theory, which was critiqued by Valerie Amos and Pratibha Parmar (2005) in “challenging imperial feminism” and accusing it of being an imperialism discourse. The two writers have......

...from other investors, though, and Systrom quickly zeroed in on one venture capitalist he thought would bring the most to the situation, including star power: Matt Cohler, of Benchmark Capital. The 36-year-old Cohler is a demi-god to entrepreneurs, with a résumé that includes an early stint as an exec at LinkedIn and then a spot as one of the first five employees hired at Facebook. He left his job there running product management in 2008 to become a venture capitalist. “It was very clear [Instagram] was striking a chord and fulfilling an unmet need,” says Cohler. “This was the first app I had seen for smartphones that was built native for this platform. . . . It was a programmable remote for life.” By February of 2011, Benchmark was leading a $7 million Series A round of funding, which valued Instagram at $25 million and which also included investments from Dorsey, angel investor Chris Sacca, and another former Facebook tech star, Adam D’Angelo, who just happened to have been Mark Zuckerberg’s roommate at Exeter, and was then running his own start-up, a question-and-answer Web site called Quora. At a party just a month later, at a retro cocktail bar called Bloodhound in San Francisco, to celebrate millions more users, Krieger toasted Cohler and the group. “To the good old days,” said Krieger. “Mike,” replied Cohler, who was the grand old man of the group at 33 years old, “these are the good old days.” Deal Breaker I ndeed, with fewer than a dozen employees, Instagram......

...also play the decisive factors role to decide the company’s success or failure. According to the view of Say(1834) whom French economist, that “entrepreneurs can be seen as adventurers, they are fourth factors of production to organize, manage and operate other three elements which are land, workforce and capital, but they has duty to bear the possible risk of bankruptcy.”(Kuratko&Hodgetts,2007). With the times developing, the concepts of entrepreneur are more focus on modern concepts. The view of Akhouri point that “entrepreneur as a character who combines innovativeness, readiness to take risk, sensing opportunities, identifying and mobilizing potential resources, concern for excellence, and who is persistent in achieving the goal.”(Mohanty, 2005) Hence, successful entrepreneurs should have the following characteristics: leadership, originality ability and self-confidence, the traits are independents, individuality and optimism, innovate, creative, flexible and leadership behaviour, they always task-oriented and future-oriented, and play role of risk bearer.
