not a lover of the sea; even when walking along the sands, he was always afraid of being cut off by the tide. He was not

a very good swimmer, so perhaps this accounts for it.

After working for some years in London he was transferred to a coast resort, and of course, the family outings were often

made to the beach. One day his children pleaded to go out into the bay in a boat. The sun shone brightly, there was little

wind and the water was calm. So Mr. Smith hired a boat and with his two children rowed out into the bay. Of course they

were tempted to go farther than they had intended, past the protecting cliffs and out to the open sea. At first all went well,

but when they decided to turn back they encountered difficulties. A strong breeze had sprung up and the currents here

were rather treacherous.

Mr. Smith rowed hard, but it seemed they were making little progress. The children, were waving to attract the attention

of the people on the beach. Just then a motor boat appeared from the direction of the bay. Their plight had been noticed

material they are using and the machine being operated. He believes that such conversation makes for better morale and

also lets him know what is taking place in the factory.

Every monday morning at the production meeting, he brings up some aspects of information picked up from the previous

week’s factory visits and askes for an explanation of it. Usually his production management personnel answers him, but

Kumar continues asking about other bits of information he received until his associates are unable to answer or inform him

that he has incorrect information. Rajesh, however, insists that the operative employees are telling him the truth and

sometimes he points out that the same information is given to him by different employees in different departments. Some

of his associates have suggested that they accompany Kumar during his factory tours, but he will have no part of this,

stating that more than one management member is with him. He claims the friendly, sincere atmosphere he has achieved

with many of the workers in the factory is a definite advantage and helps communication, and he does not want to

jeopardise it in any way.

what he is told. Kumar admits the manufacturing work is getting quite complicted, but it irks him when Sinha just stands
