Point taken. But its an unknown factor as to how many Indians have any real liquid savings - i.e excluding investments in stocks and real estate. And not many Indian households would like to sell their gold

This is a one line report from the Lehman Brothers auditors forwarded to me

"There are two sides to a Balance Sheet. - Left & the Right (Liabilities and Assets respectively) on the Left side there is nothing right… and on the right side there is nothing left "

Please check your own balance sheets on the basis of this finding.
