Although it now seems like a steal
When Kotak offered him the deal,
There was no time for diligence
With courage and intelligence
He very quickly clinched the deal,
Relying on his good gut feel.
Not that he threw away all caution
He took the brilliant precaution
Of ensuring he bought good wares
By selling a small chunk of shares
To Kotak and the firm’s MD. 
Ah! What a clever strategy!
And with this move so swift and bold
The company came in our fold.
