Indian rupee sags to record low despite government steps | Reuters.

With the Indian Rupee in free fall against the US Dollar, it’s good news for American holiday makers, but increasingly alarming for Indian consumers and businesses.

A few years ago, India was one of the proud members of the BRICS community, and foreign educated Indians were leaving their jobs in the US to return to India and their roots. Now surely many wealthy and educated Indians are worried?
