More Indian English

Just realised that one of he Indian stock market indices is called “Nifty”

Well done that man, well done indeed.

The NIFTY 50 index is National Stock Exchange of India’s benchmark stock market index for Indian equity market

Obviously, National and Fifty. But screams of joy when whoever it was realised how to create the acronym don’t you think?
