The thing about information, information that results from a hyped, successful outcome is that it sticks in your mind. Like a good story, it doesn’t age. In the world of hagiographic corporate history, the kind practised in India fairly often, a shred of information, repeated, again and again, becomes a fact. And as time goes by, that distant, misplaced fact gets passed around as legend. Needless to say, legends of successful exits make for good stories.
