INDIA’S GROWTH STORY has so far defied oil price shocks and the
consequent spikes in prices of essentials, geopolitical doldrums like the
persisting Russia-Ukraine war and the vagaries of nature like floods and
storms. The major stock markets in India, the BSE and the NSE, have so
far saluted this epic-in-the-making and then suddenly in October, share
prices of companies in key sectors like banking, telecommunications,
metals, utilities and healthcare began to slide. What portends to be a
trend comes on the eve of a scheduled deluge of initial public offerings
(IPOs) of companies big and small.
Happy reading and Happy Diwali!
