Classic echo chamber stuff. Or frog in the well, if you prefer.
About two decades ago, when most people on this forum were still in diapers, there was a popular website, samachar.com. It was a news aggregator of sorts, with some additional opinion columns. One such column was written by a gentleman named Jai Dubashi. His per peeve was the rising stock prices of Infosys and Wipro. According to him, they were mere pygmies compared to giants such as Tata Steel and Indian Oil, and deserved to be treated as such. After all, they employed only a few thousand people, compared to tens of thousands employed by the giants.
I would have loved to laugh at him now, but he's dead. Seeped in his swadeshi ideology, the learned gentleman was incapable of grasping the simple fact that people were betting on the companies' future potential rather than current value. He just couldn't look past his well to visualise how the world could change.
The original post is rooted not just in bad logic, but also in a flawed understanding of what might constitute 'online market' when the future arrives.
The case for investing (either your money or your career) in India's online market is based on its future potential. I don't know what this future would look like, but I can guarantee you that it will comprise of more just a bunch of listing sites and a platform for showing off.
The comparison is irrelevant at best, and stupid at worst.
