Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, the Big Bull who brought panache into investing
By the time of his unfortunate demise, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala had done enough to restore the power and glory of a stock market badshah, including run-ins with the markets regulator, which he mostly settled without accepting wrongdoing
Big bulls in India have mostly flattered to deceive. Harshad Mehta, one of the first to be given that title, was the kingpin of one of the biggest market scams in the early 1990s and spent his last days in prison. Ketan Parekh, another pretender to the throne at the turn of the century, ended up in equally disgraceful circumstances.
