To start off with, he discussed why there was a need for financial institutions like stock exchanges like Bombay Stock Exchange in the country. He traced back the origin of this need to the Industrial Revolution which predominantly took place in the Western world. Taking the discussion forward, he elucidated further on how historic events like the Great Recession of 1928 changed the course of the global economy. The vivid description of the 1992 crisis which the nation was embroiled in enthralled the audience.

However, he did note that the future of the Indian economy is indeed bright and the nation was entering into a new era.
