The shifting balance of power in India’s online travel market

Valid points, Mayank :) As you said, there is a need for aggregators to exist. But because consumers are already used to massive discounts, it will be tough for aggregators to move away from that (discounts have already become an important differentiator for consumers). For experience to become a differentiator, I think it will take a while, given that most of the OTAs are still focussing on bringing offline consumers to online.

From macro to micro: The fine line India’s IT industry is treading

Thanks for your comments, Pranav. Like I earlier explained to Mr Venkataramana, the article was meant to make sense of the numbers being churned out by these companies, and the strategies and tactics IT firms have been using to maintain those numbers, since they recently declared their financial results. The story, by no means, dealt with the structural issues the IT firms have. As you rightly pointed out, there are many issues with the way they work, and the challenges they face as they try to keep up with the changing technology. We would be looking at those themes in subsequent articles.
