  1. Hi Atanu Sir,
    Thank you for the session and giving us introduction about the subject.

    I am a market research professional and have enrolled through this course out of my personal interest and curiosity. Somehow I am also trying to figure out whether the subject “How the world works” or the content that we will cover in the coming days will help me to become a holistic marketing guy one day.
    I hope I haven’t asked a irrelevant question out here. Kindly forgive me if I have!

    1. Saurav,

      (Point of order: Drop the “sir” bit. First name works just fine. Thanks.)

      I don’t know what “a holistic marketing guy” is. But this course will probably not help in that regard. This course will not make you rich or famous. The aim of this course is to make one less wrong about one’s idea of how the world works. Most of us go around with quite wrong ideas about what the world is like; this course aims to correct some of those wrong ideas. We may believe that the world is going to hell in a handbasket. But actually it is not. Why not? That’s what this is about.
