Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

India:England 1-1 draw. Defensive error in last qtr. Otherwise they would have won. I am seeing women's hockey after a long time. They have improved in skills and fitness but are still slower than the Europeans. We have to see if they can last a whole tournament. Hope they can finish well and improv...

Your contention is that Ambani is a crook (as if the other businessmen in India are saints) and hence his university will be crooked and will produce only crooks. That is a whole lot of assumptions wi...

Chola, your example itself is erroneous. A car has imported components and commodities.

No you are wrong. Domestic consumption is based on PPP. Only imported and commodities depend on exchange rate and nominal GDP.

Yes, the tag gives you total freedom or autonomy or whatever you call it. I won't go by jholawala logic. I will wait to see the final product. We need to get away from sarkari godowns that we call universities and institutes in India. As mentioned above modern STEM is capital intensive. A modest equ...

Both India and China now have one lemon each in their hand. It is geo-strategic rather than economic viability. Perhaps SL new govt wanted to balance it out. But there may be more lemons as SL still has other massive Chinese debts.
