Reaching global competitiveness is the number one challenge for corporate India. We now operate in a global regime of relatively free markets and borders , and there is no longer sanctuary for Indian corporate, be they public sector or private sector and we are very far behind.

When we look upon the fantastic and gigantic histories of the above companies , it simply says everything about itself. Something very different from others and far-thinking than the ordinary ones.

[...] After the market saw a flood of IBM PC clones in the mid-1980s, Microsoft used its new position, which it gained in part due to a contract from IBM, to dominate the home computer operating system market with MS- DOS. The company later released an initial public offering (IPO) in the stock market, which netted several of its employees millions of dollars due to the ensuing rise of the stock price. The price of the stock continued its rise steadily into the early 2000s. [...]
