    Invest in Infoedge will come USD 3 billion market cap in 2 years, currently less than USD 1bn. Very high operating leverage, in Vantage position.

    Aaah is this the reason why they hire truck load of strategy whiz from ISB ? Whats next ? an Education Portal ?

    I have a better strategy advice for them. Have a little mercy on your share holders and shut down the god damn Fire(back)(not) Fly internet business of yours and put that money in infoedge's stock . you are copying them mindlessly anyway so don't spoil that plan by trying to mix your intelligence in it.

    Raghav, Mandarin is widely used official language in China and is probably the only language that unites the country. Which language unites India??

    Moreover, the guy who have the bare minimum moolah , is comfortable with English.

    I simply hate the guys who come up with stupid language gyan :x

    1 million page views a month is making them proud but it making me feel ashamed of indian companies….1 million is not a great no. where population is1.25 billion……so a piece of advice do focus on hindi content,,,,bcos thats the primary reason for high growth in chinese internet users
