外文标题：As rivals falter, India’s economy is surging ahead
SRIPERUMBUDUR: China's economy is slowing. Brazil is struggling as commodity prices plunge. Russia, facing Western sanctions and weak oil revenue, is headed into a recession.
As other big developing markets stumble, India is emerging as one of the few hopes for global growth.
The stock market and rupee are surging. Multinational companies are looking to expand their Indian operations or start new ones. The growth in India's economy, long a laggard, just matched China's pace in recent months.
India is riding high on the early success of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a raft of new business-friendly policies instituted in his first eight months.
Small factories no longer need to shut down every year for government inspectors to spend a day checking boilers. Foreign investment rules have been relaxed for insurers, military contractors and real estate companies. A broad tax overhaul is underway.
Great beginning Modiji, we are always with you, and wil continue to do so for next 10 years atleast.

I see really good times for the country. Only thing now is to reign in the endless corruption and for country's image - Swacch Bharat! It is sad we had a PM like MMS for 10 years who did not even give any direction - now we have a chance!
Did not read many comments. But I think blind fans would have already credited it to their beloved leader!!

Can we call it good days? Happy to see our nation developing :)
rupee surging ??? A US dollar used to be less than fifty rupees not much more than a year ago. Now it is over sixty two
As companies trying to look for other options from China...India has to compete with Indonesia...Thailand...our labour laws, day to day strikes... and land acquisition can make these companies go elsewhere...

So far the growth has primarily been in the stock markets. Now the growth needs to reach to the people with more jobs and more well paying jobs!!

"Well begun is half done". The economic surge has begun on a right direction, it would surely continue productively.
