but for the country too. This deal, especially with all that happened around it, shows India's determination to become a serious player. It seems there's already respect and fear in Europe about India and Indian companies.

I consider this a greater acquisition than L.N. Mittal's big-ticket buyout of Arcelor because it's not only about an Indian entrepreneur acquiring a company which is among the world's top five steelmakers, but also four times the size of Tata Steel. Against this, Mittal's was a global group though the man himself holds an Indian passport. Also, Mittal mostly acquired companies which were of low net worth and were government-owned. It's not the same here.
