From ethnic clothing to copper cocktail glasses, Made-in-India products are all the rage among global online shoppers. In 2017, Amazon registered a 500% increase in international orders for Indian products over 2015 when its Global Selling Program was first launched in India, the company said in a report. The scheme lets the country’s vendors enlist on Amazon and sell to customers worldwide. Indian exporters saw a 224% growth in their global business in 2017 alone, the report said.
After a year that saw over 56,000 layoffs in India’s tech sector alone, there may be some respite for professionals. None of the 4,612 employers surveyed across sectors by US-headquartered workforce solutions company ManpowerGroup said they planned to downsize in April-June 2018. But the scene is not all rosy. While there won’t be layoffs, hiring as such will be lower than in previous quarters.
Last year, India accounted for nearly 30% of all corporate funding in the sector globally. The Narendra Modi government, which hosted the International Solar Alliance on March 11, is likely to be mighty pleased about this—but the party may not last. Corporate funding, including private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) deals, debt funding, and public market funding, for India’s solar sector touched $3.6 billion in 2017, says a report by consulting and research firm Mercom Capital Group.
Outside India, people are using Indian bed sheets as beach towels and wall hangings; desi ghee (clarified butter) to enhance coffee flavours; and Indian copper tumblers as beer and cocktail glasses https://qz.com/1229086
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
