Nirav Modi is being painted as a culprit, while he is a victim of the stupidity of a finance minister who acted in haste without making any attempt to recover the money at stake.

Indian banks, society and authorities have no respect for the wealth creators of the country. They enjoy lynching entrepreneurs the moment they are in trouble. The concept of giving a second chance is an alien one in India. Vijay Mallya is being lynched for his crime of making losses in Kingfisher Airlines while the ones responsible for losses at Air India are enjoying life. The author salutes entrepreneurs who brave it all and help create wealth and employment in the country.

The author worked for 30 years with the largest cement company of India. As he quit the company, he wrote a letter to some friends summing up his personal vision and philosophy of work. This is not a literary piece. It stems from experience. It shines with its simplicity and down-to-earth (yet, profound) thinking.
Indian Banks tend to blame everyone else except themselves for the problem of NPA's. It is high time that they did some introspection. A sad story of the way the entreprenurial talent of the country is being wasted by bureaucratic functioning style of Banks in India.

This discussion paper was submitted to Shri LK Advani a few years before BJP came to power. It is not clear whether he read it. But it is a new thought that deserves your careful consideration.
