Economic Times

I was reading articles in the Economic Times of India, and they were reminiscent of newspaper articles in the Silicon Valley around 1999. Interestingly, some of the articles sound as if they were written by American journalists for American readers, which probably shows how intertwined the economic link is between the U.S. and India.

I learned two words used in the Indian number system:

1 crore = 10 million
1 lakh = 100 thousand
