  1. Completely one-sided articles both Nokia and Vedanta. I really dont mind companies like Vedanta not doing business in India. Also the environmental concern in Orissa’s case were genuine. We are always so ready to give up tribals and environment in lieu of so-called investments. Having good mineral and oil resources and exploiting them is not a way to grow. In fact can be a deterrent like Nigeria.Nothing can replace good governance. It is only when their diamond mines ran out did some African countries like Botswana prosper. Same holds for oil.
