Went to fascinating talk tonight on latest developments in India and how the economy is booming at 8% a quarter. Fascinating to hear differences between China and India especially how population of India is so much younger, speaks good English highly educated and a lot more time zone friendly for us in England. Splendid to hear how red tape and bribery is disappearing quite quickly. really made me want to visit!
Best speaker by a long way was Karan Bilimoria of Cobrabeer with fascinating tale about how Saatchi wanted to ship complete film production unit over to India to make adverts. and charge £1m Karan had to explain that Bollywood is bigger than Hollywood. interestingly Saatchi now use Bollywood for their other campaigns.
