“We must not forget that our people are humans made of flesh and blood and cannot be treated like machines,” said Nair while addressing the management honchos and academics during the book launch of "My Experiments with Unleashing People Power" by K.K. Sinha, professor, Birla Institute of Management Technology (BIMTECH).

In the book, based on his experiences as the human resource director of NTPC Ltd for a decade, Sinha spells out how human capital has become the key component for survival and success.

Appreciating the writings of Sinha, Nair pitched for empowerment as a tool to motivate people.

"We cannot lose sight of what Indian economy has achieved since independence. The public sector undertakings have a big role and responsibility," Nair added.

He alluded to the contributions made by NTPC's founding chairman D.V. Kapur, ONGC's Col. S.P. Wahi and Maruti's V. Krishnamurthy.

Four former and serving NTPC heads, including D.V. Kapur and serving Chairman Arup Roy Choudhury, were present on the occasion.
