Kishore Biyani was building once again—this time, castles in the air about FDI in multi-brand retail and foreign monies boosting his flagging business. But then Didi happened, much like how Vinay Pathak messes it up for Rajat Kapoor in Bheja Fry. Mamta Banerjee took a passionately aggressive stand against the ruling government, ostensibly batting for the farmers, and not really caring for big businesses. If the status quo on FDI continues, Biyani could well end up writing another book, “It did not happen in India”.
