India needs its own digital champions and the ban on Chinese apps offers a brief opportunity
Earlier this week, when the Indian government banned nearly 60 Chinese mobile apps, including TikTok , citing security concerns, there was a cacophony of both cheers and moans across India. While to some this was a fitting response to the recent border face-off with China, others have called for punitive curbs even on Indian companies like Paytm, Zomato, Byju’s for having Chinese shareholders. In the midst of the din, I would bet that an entire generation of Indian digital entrepreneurs has just breathed a quiet sigh of collective relief, regardless of whether they’ve made much sense of either of the above arguments.
