@abhik501 yup. interestingly, many French thought we were pre-disposed to "French-bashing" for the sake of it - the kind of refrain I hear in India now. Not so: we just didn't like policies of those in power. When those policies changed, so did our line.

@ChhuganiAshok Nope, no matter how much I rate Mihir's stuff. What makes you think I agree with him the upgrade is a bad move? My gripe is with the market reaction, not the upgrade. Though I do agree timing of upgrade is unexpected, given GST and thus state finances are in state of flux.
