India@90 storeys?

A major builder talks about building 90-storey high apartments in Mumbai. I am skeptical. I recall more than once talk about building the 'tallest building in the world' in India.

But, with 'money' being as plentiful now in India as water in the oceans, all sorts of fanciful ideas might after all come to fruition. Mr. Lodha might well make a profit on his 'investment' of 4,000 crores or whatever on his four precious acres of land in Mumbai.

Mr. Mallaya, as you will recall, has decided to raze his 'ancestral' place in B'lore and raise an appropriately 'tall' skyscraper in its place ... and he will occupy the penthouse apartment himself. How nice!

Some may say I am a dreamer, but I am not the only one ... did anyone say?

Currency Stories: India and China

I am skeptical about all the song and dance about the falling rupee. Is India's economy on a fundamentally different trajectory than China's? What is the direction that the experts are hoping India's economy should take? What is going to be the path of India's development? The weak rupee probably makes it costlier to go on those frequent trips to Davos -- at least for the private sector who have to pay for their trips themselves. In all this tsunami of talk about the collapse of the rupee, we seem to have all forgotten about the China story which otherwise somewhere seems to be there almost as an alter ego.
