Forbes India Feature # 1: Laws of Distraction

Saturday, 17 July 2010 02:19 Written by

In this episode of 'Forbes India Special Report Podcast series' in association with Indicast, Shloka Nath makes the rather complex subject of 'law' interesting to the ears by taking us through her detailed report on India's largest law firm, Amarchand Mangaldas. Boasting an enviable set of clients which include P Chaidambaram, Mukesh Ambani, K V Kamath and the likes, the family run business is being handled by two brothers, Cyril Shroff and Shardul Shroff. Their leadership skills are so varied from each other that it makes for an interesting case study in HR. We also spend time talking about the Indian Legal market where foreign firms are not allowed to start operations in India yet which Shloka thinks is only a matter of time...

Back in 1720, after losing a fortune in the South Sea Bubble, Issac Newton is believed to have famously remarked, 'I can calculate the movement of stars, but not the madness of men.' The mercurial nature of the stock markets ensures that this statement stands the test of time in the 21st Century as well. In these circumstances, last year, Forbes India recommended 20 stocks to its readers which a year later have reaped a handsome 54 per cent. This cover story is a sequel. In this podcast, Pravin Palande and T Surendar, the Associate Editors at Forbes India give us a run down of how the markets have behaved over the past year. They also attempt to do an encore by recommending 20 stocks for us readers to invest in.

A few minutes after the Indian government announced its intention of decontrolling the price of petrol, consumers and companies (both PSUs and private entities) are pouring in with their reactions. In this podcast, Cuckoo Paul, the Associate Editor at Forbes India who has been tracking the government decisions on oil since the mid-90s opines that this decontrol of petrol comes with an asterix which reads, "Conditions Apply".

While on one hand the government has declared that it will no longer control the prices, it has floated a rider which says that it might step in if things get awry.  In this quick chat, Cuckoo decodes some oil industry jargons such as 'under recoveries' and brings in her perspective on how the Indian economy may have to brace itself for inflation in the coming months, but the long term benefits will include cutting down the soaring budget deficit which is currently 5.5 per cent of the GDP.
