Abstract

Most of the Western management thinkers had given preponderant emphasis to rational economic theory of human behaviour. It also fits into their social life, which is highly planned and organized. On the other hand, affection and emotional warmth have a great deal of impact on work life of Eastern societies. The growing ecological concern is a new phenomenon for Westerners, whereas trees and water were worshipped in many Eastern countries in ancient times. Similarly, one notices ‘Mother’s Day’ in Canada and, as one Indian living in Canada remarked: ‘One can do with Mother’s Day here once in a year, but if I am in India, every day has to be Mother’s Day. If I don’t see her for even a day, it is something which is looked down upon by family and society. And my mother feels shocked’.
