The primary aim of this chapter is to present a model for understanding an Indian worker. Hence, the paper begins with mapping the development of psychology in India, during and after British rule. It further reviews the traditional roots of Indian society, by highlighting the important features of the dominant religions of the region. Principles that are considered central in shaping Indian mind and determining work behaviour are also discussed. Drawing from these, the chapter then presents a model of an Indian worker which, while being influenced by the context and material gains, is both collectivist and individualist.
