Is India relevant in today’s world economy?
Yesterday 11/11 Chinese Singles Day (a make-name shopping festival invented by Alibaba) coincided with Diwali. Both countries had a huge retail sales & domestic consumption. Yet the Western media had articles after articles on Chinese Singles Day. Diwali festival was barely mentioned anywhere.
Isn’t it strange the only time the name India is mentioned in any international publications it is linked to
1. Religious Intolerance or RSS or Modi
2. Poverty or corruption or Congress
3. Draconian policies of bureaucrats or how investor un-friendly India is
It is time India should hire some good PR scientist to steer the conversation to modernization or better still advance so much that everyone has no choice to notice us.
