    Wow I didnt know Indians have been aggressively acquiring coal mines abroad. Good they are leaving Indian reserves as it is whatever the reason, environment or otherwise. We should similarly be acquiring iron ore mines. The report says coal mines are being acquired by power barons. That is bad news though as coal fired plants pollute a lot.

    Steel barons should look to acquire iron ore mines abroad. Leave Indian reserves for future.

    Coal mine aquisition is driven by the need of high grade coal. Most of the Indian deposits are of low grade

    I didn't realise that Times of India will actually use 'Desi' in the headline. In hindsight though, it is not a bad thing. English language is getting richer day by day. :)

    LOL, you seem to know a lot about Indian nuances. :D I commend that.

    Triangle = Research Triangle Park = ​Cary = Software Companies = Indians = Desi

    Not surprising. :)
