Schneider Electric in rural India written by Jasjit Singh and Christiane Bode, both at INSEAD, Singapore. This case describes the evolution of Schneider Electric’s efforts to serve the base of the pyramid (BOP) market in rural India. Starting out as part of a stand‐alone corporate social responsibility programme to serve villages with no electricity, these have been integrated over time with a rural business initiative that aims to profit from the long‐term opportunity these markets present.The authors also discuss strategic innovation in the context of a multinational company’s emerging market strategy, or framed more specifically as an attempt to “do well by doing good” in a low‐income rural BOP setting, such as in India.

He is a fine man. A fine man. He gives it his all. He dresses well and has a wooden cross that swings in front of his chest when he calls out each play. He is an excellent role model for students and adults everywhere. And what lesson do we take away from his being mercesslellsy fired today.
Clean out your locker. Leave the office clean. Do not say goodbyes to any player. Just dissappear and get lost.
YOu see, this is the problem with the education field. The loser gets shit on.
Why not give the loser some little bit of dignity and let him finish out the season
