Most Hindu kings – or the Kings of Indian origin – acted as a trustee when they managed the kingdom’s money. Even though they were the owners, and theoretically they could do whatever they wanted to do with the money, they managed as though they were to be there permanently. This is easy to believe – and it used to be called the ‘owner mentality’.
Owner mentality means you are trying to increase net worth, not just the cash flow.
However nowadays clearly the hired CEO and sometimes even the owner himself look at the business as a short term opportunity. The CEO is looking for the better/ bigger job and the owner is looking to ‘sell’ the brand. Thus most people lack the passion and the willingness to create wealth in the long run.
What else can be an explanation for the King of Thiruvananthapuram to keep so much of Gold in the lockers of Padmanabha Swami temple?
Well it was a family tradition to go to the temple everyday, place the sword at the feet of God and accept the mandate to run the country!
Thus all the wealth, metaphorically and actually belonged to God!
