as see it! T
he issue is that there is no issue. From the most successful corporate honchos to the greatest of saints, the MANTRA is that you have to work consciously being anchored in the present, learning from the mistakes and visualising a positive outcome! Whew! Was that too much? The hot summers in Northern Gangetic plains are perhaps getting at me! However, when it comes to this month it’s also one of weddings for the salon business, of suncare for the industry, of summer fragrances and deos and of relaxing facials and soothing body massages drenched in rose and khus. May is for mothers and all women who have a range of responsibilities that they balance to the best of each one’s ability! Mothers are so special and in India, we actually worship them! Mothers from a generation before mine also remind us of hot oil ‘champis’(head massages), or turmeric - cream face packs, rose water eye washes, or colon cleansing water with fennel or carom seeds! It’s amazing how eﬀective these basic remedies turned out to be and how easily we forgot them. However, it’s also true that however much we oil our hair, we have to shampoo and condition to get optimum health and a further protective serum before we have it tonged, ironed or blow dried! Women have really been adding a lot of products to their regimes and it has sometimes made a big diﬀerence to how we look and feel!
Women have really been adding a lot of products to their regimes and it has sometimes made a big difference to how we look and feel!
However, we have miles to go when it comes to the issues of self esteem and self evaluation. We are always ﬁnding ourselves less than what we should be- at least most of us. Whilst on Mother’s Day, I have to concede that as women we do have an extra nurturing bone or two but that in no way makes us less- it makes us more! Sorry to all men who might ﬁnd this too sexist, however, I have been lead to re-visit this after having read a brilliant book by Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg- LEAN IN! She very correctly points out that women shy away from taking credit of their work -- or do they? My experience working with youngsters brimming with energy is diﬀerent -- it’s almost as if I KNOW and I AM WORTH IT! L’Oréal does not have to look further when it comes to women it has inspired through its tag line - ‘Because I am worth it’! With these mixed feelings of my own inadequate existence juxtaposed with others of supreme conﬁdence, who are all but starting oﬀ in life, I wonder whether mothers of the next generation will be a diﬀerent species, quite unrecognisable from those of yore or somewhere we will strike the real balance of conﬁdent, successful professionals and loving and caring mums!

redefining beauty since 1992
Editors’ letter W
hat is innovation? While several and diﬀering nuanced deﬁnitions exist in management and leadership thesis, all pundits agree on one thing: it is what makes your business stand out from the crowd.
Is innovation always proactive, though? And is proactive better? Not necessarily, I think. Even if you weren’t the ﬁrst to hit the buzzer, how you react and respond to what peers are doing will deﬁne the way your story goes. Sure, being ﬁrst to market with a new product can provide you with signiﬁcant ﬁrst-mover advantages, not to mention being forever labelled as a ‘pioneer’, but the high lasts only as long as it takes for a cleverer business to come along. Corporate history is replete with examples of companies – some of these are currently the most admired businesses in the world – who’ve grown (at least in their initial days) simply by copying and bettering the innovations of others. Yes, all that is ﬁne, but where am I going with this, you’re thinking? Well, ﬁrst, where this is coming from is the plethora of innovative labelling one sees on beauty products these days. Clearly, each brand needs and wants to diﬀerentiate from the herd, but is it all going too fast for a market that is still fairly nascent? Are we ready for second- and third-generation sunscreens, for example? Will there be enough volumes to sustain the innovation? The opposite argument, of course, is that great products create their own consumers and markets. Many years ago, this was said about the British fashion brand FCUK, as analysts pondered over what exactly worked for a line that had no hitherto demand! The truth is, customers don’t know what they want, as Steve Jobs famously informed us. Because they’ve never seen it. I prefer this – politically incorrect – line of thought. If you listened only to customers all the time, you would do what has already been done and never break the mould. And that’s not very innovative, is it?
