This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

"I hate the term Third World country and maybe if we produce 30 Merck-like companies in India then this nomenclature will be dropped," Dr Anji Reddy, founder and chairman of Dr Reddy's Laboratories (DRL), once said at a lecture in Mumbai.
