Questions in my mind:

1. To get a feel of what does it take to build a company in India.
2. To get a feeling about how to attract domestic customers ?
3. To know more about what sort of products that sell in domestic markets?
4. All these days we have been doing good amount of 'Services' work from India. What about products? What does it take to build a another 'Product building' Infosys from India ?
