Dilemma of State Tube Wells

In the area studied in western Uttar Pradesh the capital cost of state tube wells is seven and a half times as high per unit of pumping capacity as that of the private tube wells. There is thus economic pressure to spread out the overhead costs by achieving high rates of utilisation. State tube wells operate much closer to engineering capacity than do the private tube wells. They pump twice the volume of water and irrigate three times the hectarage per unit of pumping capacity of the private tube wells. Rut such rates result in increased breakdowns and the consequent unreliability of water supplies.

strata of society. Dynamic Centrism suffered a most grievous defeat, perhaps only a shade less than that suffered by the Syndicate. It is (rue that the DMK and its allies derived considerable advantage from being part of the general mainstream which bore alott Indira Gandhi. But in Tamil Nadu clearly they were main part of the mainstream. In this State as well it will be essential in the coming period to mobilise as extensive a front based on struggle as possible in order to push on to advance further to the Left. The DMK being what it is this will not happen automatically and a skilful use of the tactic of unity as well as struggle would be required.

Micro Planning The Neglected Interface

Social and economic systems have divergent subsystems which wilt work together effectively only when they are linked by an interface that ensures compatibility between them. Often, the individual subsystem by itself may be superb in its design, structure, and contents; and yet the total system may fail to work optimally because the interaction between, or the synchronisation of, the constituent parts has been neglected. Neglect of the interface can be costly in terms of the performance of the total system.

Some Myths in Management

The myths of a business organisation, like those of a community, have their foundation in partial reality at a given period of time but they scarcely ever represent the total reality. They satisfy a variety of social and psychological needs of the system and of its managers. They help provide rationality to behaviour in the organisation and justification for managerial inactivity or failure; they minimise anxiety by transferring managerial failures to external events or to the powers that guide their destiny.
