What do you guys think? Are we not tired of news about foreign investors taking over Indian companies all these days? Have we not aspired of a day where Indian company involved in international sponsorship?
Well this had been the trend all these days on growing foreign investors acquiring more and more Indian companies. Recent one on the news was about Hutch being acquired by Vodafone. But of late we seem to have turned the tables around.
The news that impressed and compelled me to share these thoughts is about news on Sahara India.
Sahara India – Very well known brand to all of us, isn’t it? How can we cricket lovers forget about this brand. Our Men In Blue flashes it day in day out on the field.
Manchester United, the coveted and richest football club in the world, looking to renew its sponsorship through Sahara India. So the Men In Red might soon flash Sahara brand on the field. What a great feeling to see Indian brand in the game that’s followed by billions across the globe.
So who are the other ones made the difference:
Mittals, The Iron Men – Arcelor merger made all Indians have that smirk on their face in pride of what an Indian can do on a foreign soil.
Mallya, The Kingfisher – His venture of co-owning F1 racing has taken India Inc to the next level. Indeed it was a great feeling for me to see Indian face on the dais at the opening ceremony.
Tatas, The Motor Giant – The recent acquisitions of Jaguar automobile company in the UK. Till date not even a single employee being made redundant by Tatas in the UK market. That shows the efficiency of business acumen with which these guys made India Inc so proud.
IT Companies – Needless to say how our nation is ruling the IT roost. I know there has been some unpleasant news recently but that might not take away the credit that our folks have made us proud in other streams.
Are these indications to see India is no more considered under “cheap Labour” category instead under “Rich Business acumen” category very soon?
