Rakesh Jhunjhunwala on FT.com

Famed Indian stock investor and trader Rakesh Jhunjhunwala recently sat down for an interview with FT.com's "View From the Markets" video series.

I'm sure many of our Indian and Asian readers are familiar with Jhunjhunwala's career, but for those outside the region who may not know him, check the Wikipedia link above for a brief introduction to the man currently tagged as the "Warren Buffett of India".

Those who are familiar with Rakesh's reputation as one of India's most prominent stock bulls (he has also played the short side with success) may be unsurprised to hear his view that the "mother of all bull markets" in Indian shares lies not too far ahead.

Click on the interview link to find out why he feels Indian shares will be an attractive opportunity in the years to come. You can also find out more about Jhunjhunwala's investing and trading background in the following related articles and links below.

I find it fascinating to learn more about traders and investors from other countries, and I hope you'll enjoy this information as well.

In the case of Rakesh, I am especially interested to find a sterling example of a value investor who has a knowledge of trading (he cites Victor Sperandeo's Methods of a Wall Street Master as an early source of knowledge) and an appreciation of the differences inherent in trading and investing.

Note to our readers: If you have articles to share on successful traders and investors who may fly under the radar, we are always interested to hear about them; email me or drop us a note in the comments section. Thanks!

Hi Sonia,

Glad you liked the Rakesh post.

I'm not sure about if he has mentioned this book, but I'm sure you can find some more about him in the "profiles and interviews" link mentioned in our related posts section. Plenty of articles on RJ there!
