No More Happy Play Grounds for Gupta Brothers

The sun seems to be setting on the fortunes of the trio of Gupta brothers from Saharanpur, all in their 40s, who earned millions in South Africa and hobnobbed with many of the top politicians and bureaucrats, including President Jacob Zuma. Only to see Zuma disgraced with corruption allegations and forced to quit office by his own African National Party.

It was exactly 200 years after the British committed genocide at Wellassa.
