Vodafone-Idea gets a sigh of relief from Supreme Court.

Can corporate situations resemble typical Bollywood movies? Sometimes maybe. You would have seen, especially in the movies of the ’90s, that, when a villain used to do everything he could to kill the hero, and the hero felt completely helpless, he went to a temple and prayed. ‘Upar wale ke ghar me dher hai, andher nahi,’ that’s what the hero used to utter while praying and some miracle happened which used to save his life and keep his family safe from the villain. After being forced to pay the AGR dues, Vodafone-Idea might have found itself in a similar situation.

New Advertising Strategy of Chinese Smartphones

In marketing, there's a concept called 'Localization.' According to this concept, a company customizes its product based on the needs of the market in which it is selling. A classic example of this is the introduction of 'Mc Aloo Tikki' burger by McDonald's in India. By the way, it was not innovation or some positive marketing strategy, but McDonald's was forced into this. After McDonald's introduced its classic Beef Burger in India, it had to face mass retaliation as it had inadvertently hurt Indians' sentiments. But, then it introduced a range of localized products, and you see, it's working for it fine now.

Reasons Behind Why People are not Saving Money?

HSBC conducted a survey and reported that only one-third of Indians save their income regularly. Without emergency funds or savings, one could be putting themselves at financial risk. Most of them believe in the concept of saving money, but only a few manage to practice it. There may be plenty of excuses for not saving regularly like I don't know where to save, I don't know how to save, I don't have enough money to save, etc. After paying bills, renting, and making loan payments, there's often not much leftover, but by proper budgeting and planning, one can build a proper plan to save money. Some people struggle for external reasons, such as health issues, student loans, sick parents, and more prevalent causes than we think. On the other side, there are individuals out there who are utterly irresponsible with their money despite being able to save more. If you neglect savings and an unplanned bill may arise, then it's going to be a problem.

Setback for Chinese automobile companies In India

Three decades of rapid and continuous growth, China's automakers have reached a historic inflection point. The industry is witnessing a new reality wherein sales are on the decline, and there is a paradigm shift from the manufacture and sale of internal combustion engine cars to the pioneering of next-generation technologies. The Chinese auto market has reached a saturation point, and hence the automakers were on the lookout for future expansion strategies in newer geographical markets. These companies are flush with funds and are scouting to invest in a market that has the potential to grow since sales growth in China has stagnated. Who better fits in the frame than their neighbor India for this ample opportunity. India's long-term growth potential of the economy and the success of Chinese companies who have ventured into the non-automotive space, these automakers are taking the plunge in the Indian market.

What are the Opportunities for Indian Companies in China

A growing stream of Indian companies is on the lookout for new opportunities in emerging markets.

The FDI in China for 2019 was $137 billion, climbing a notch by 5.8% from the previous year. China is one of the world's largest recipients of foreign direct investment. The most attractive factor is the large consumer base of 1.3 billion consumers in China. This is a robust trajectory for growth, with ever-increasing consumer spending.

Dramatically declining unemployment rate in India.

In the last few weeks, certain things have changed. The nationwide lockdown got over and India entered Unlock 1.0 and then Unlock 2.0. But, just before this, we experienced quite an unusual time where the only thing we knew was ‘Stay Home, Stay Safe’. People stayed at home but the economy entered into an unsafe territory. The slump is still going on and something which shot up as a result was unemployment. During the lockdown, the unemployment rate touched an alarming height of 23.4%.

How Chinese Investment in India is Dominating Tech Space

In a move to curb opportunistic takeovers during the pandemic, specifically from Chinese entities, the Centre has recently revised FDI policy, making it mandatory for prior government approval for direct investments from countries with which India shares a border. This restriction had earlier applied for investments from Pakistan and Bangladesh. Though the Centre has not specified China, the spurt of investments by Chinese investors has prompted the Government to take this decision.

What will be the impact if Indians boycott Chinese products

"Boycott China" is the current anthem that resounds in India in retaliation against China's resentment. Amid the border standoff in Ladakh, there has been a clamor amongst citizens to boycott products from China, which is seen as the unreasonable aggressor. The outrage has been extensive on social media, with hashtags like #BoycottChina and #BoycottChineseProducts trending on Twitter and the video by Sonam Wangchuk prompting Indians to retaliate stating that while the Army can handle the Chinese attempts of incursion in Ladakh, can be dealt only with the support and cooperation of the general public.

The spread of the Coronavirus from Wuhan, the epicenter to the rest of the world, has brought China on a global backlash.

Deteriorating financial condition of Hospitality sector in India.

In the last few weeks, many experts have highlighted that India may have unintentionally flattened the wrong curve. Who could forget the epic interview of Mr. Rajiv Bajaj who even termed the lockdown as a ‘draconian’ one. But, it’s not about arguing over the success or failure of lockdown. It’s about the economic revival which depends upon the industries coming back to normal. In this scenario, one industry which has suffered the most is hospitality and the one which will take more time and efforts to revive is also hospitality.

Suppose, another farmer acquired land just beside this farmer’s land and starts seeding pulses too. The new farmer had seeds and fertilizers in stock and started the farming process just at the right time. On the other hand, the old farmer had taken a loan to fulfill his supplies and start the process.

Adani Green Energy to execute world’s largest solar order.

Mahatma Gandhi once said ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world’. It’s not necessary that we follow everything literally. Sometimes, the connotations and contexts could be changed based on circumstances and it is all acceptable till the time the result is good and positive. Take this quote for instance, which signifies that if something wrong is happening and you wish to stop it, then you have to start changing yourself first and the world would follow. But, from a corporate point of view this can be related with innovation and problem solving.

Technology is taking over human beings and that’s the reason automation is slowly becoming the most sought-after industrial aspect. Manufacturing has cut off human intervention to a certain extent and now it’s the turn of services. Driverless Cars, robots, drones etc. Are replacing humans and we might soon enter a world where their population (and importance) would be way more than human beings. And, this is happening globally.
