rule – Lessons modern businesses can learn

A sizeable part of India’s history is occupied by the Mughals. It began in 1526 with Babur and practically ended with Auranzgeb’s death in 1707. While this death marked the end of an era, the Mughal Empire lasted another fifty years before actually ebbing.
