India truly is the proverbial elephant economy. When other economies are buzzing, bursting and sizzling their way through high growth numbers, the world looks to India and wonders why she is so slow. When economies around the world bust, crackle and fizzle down, India is considered the resilient behemoth who can stand the test of time.
An economy that needs severe patience to deal with, groom into and mature, India like the elephant never forgets. She’s learnt from past mistakes, likes to move slow and steady and generally takes care of her heard. Yes she might strike wild if she is frightened or lost, she has been plundered for her riches, yet she leads a fairly happy, non-intrusive existence in the corporate jungle.
India should be glad to be the elephant. Every jungle needs one. Especially when dragons come to roar, elephants bring about a sense of calmness. It is this resilient calmness that companies and investors are flocking to as global currencies and stock markets rumble.
