The Media Loves It

The news about Indian MBA grads getting top dollar salaries abroad frequently makes it to the headlines of the Indian media. It is better if the media states the salary in the currency of the respective country and leaves it at that. To create more impact the media converts such pay packets into INR and publishes it in the headlines. Any salary in $ / £ / € when converted into INR will definitely be a huge sum. If Indonesia converts such dollar salaries into their currency it will work out to a few million Indonesian Rupiah.

  • Yeah, I agree, Conversion isn't good.! I say the same things to my friends in India, when they start multiplying everything by 45...when I tell the rates of things here.!

  • @Prerona,
    IMO the headlines are misleading. Even I didn't know about Telegraph feeds till recently

    @Wicked Angel,
    it is quite a big number

    @Radha,
    Adsense made no sense....they disabled mine

    @Ram,
    media tries to sensationalize such news

    @Venkitu,
    it results in comparison of apples and oranges.
