Not a week passes by without some excitement in the newsroom. This week we saw one more fairly large exit by an Indian company. Web company Directi sold a large stake in the company in a $110 million deal.  The Electronics Systems Design & Manufacturing received a major shot in the arm as the Indian government approved 2 proposals to setup fab units in the country.

We reported on the crisis at redBus after its acquisition. The company has lost at least a dozen senior employees & more are on their way out, apparently because they were unhappy with the ESOP scheme.

Some of our guest authors wrote deep thought pieces provoking reactions from a large number of readers. The analysis of Groupon’s Rs 9 for a Kilo of Onion campaign was a roaring hit. In short, a lot of water has flown under the bridge. In case you missed a few, here’s a recap of the best of the week.
