@ OP,
Don't you have any reasonable thing to do with your time and life apart from being pessimistic? Why are you always spamming this blog with your stupid threads and comments? This blog is not meant for people like you that never see the good sides of life. People like you hide under the umbrella of anonymity to troll around the internet. If you are not happy in/with Sweden, its never too late for you to move or mellow down and get a life elsewhere. Mind you, my comment is based on all your pessimistic threads on this blog, not just this one. By the way, where do you work? I asked because it seems you spend 23 hours of your day on thelocal. Your comments are everywhere!! Common, grow up a bit man.
OBS! I've got no time dragging words with you. In other words, you get no more reply from me on this thread. Good day.

I would say that Indian Government has really helped IKEA by implementing this ban.
Compared to Indian food Swedish food is tasteless and has no flavor what so ever.
I know there is a big expat community in some major cities in India but still I don't think the demand will be high enough for some Swedish meat balls.
Come on IKEA when can we have IKEA samosa unsure.gif

Maybe it is time to either see a very good English Teacher, because your understanding of English language is absolutely dreadful.

It has taken Ikea many years to get into India, and they are not allowed to sell Food. It is not banned as you seem to believe. India has trade restrictions that make it difficult for foreign companies to establish themselves, Ikea's own application did not include the food, they knew in advance it was restricted.

Fool!. blink.gif .

Banned : the state of restricting something.
Ikea : A business model that is not able to offer the same services as they do elsewhere in the world, with the emphasis of them prohibited from selling food in India.

AKA Banned.

Like it or not, "banned" fully complies with description relating to the article.
So this idea of comprehension relating to the English language is rather rich coming from a self proclaimed northerner.

So you will need to try harder with your attempts of your Engrish kung fu.

That would have sounded a lot better if you could actually spell "English" correctly, byke.
