Why this question:

CCD is a big brand and Siddhartha’s untimely demise reflects poorly on the prevailing business atmosphere, replete with “pressures” mentioned in a letter to the board of CCD and its employees.

Key demand of the question:

The answer must evaluate the atmosphere in the country that is made available to the entrepreneurs. 

Directive:

Critically examineWhen asked to examine, you have to examine methodically the structure or nature of the topic by separating it into component parts and present them as a whole in a summary. When ‘critically’ is suffixed or prefixed to a directive, one needs to look at the good and bad of the topic and give a fair judgement.

Structure of the answer:

Introduction: 

Discuss the importance of entrepreneurs for the economy in general.

Body:

The answer should mainly talk about the factors of ease of doing business in India. To what extent India has a conducive atmosphere for entrepreneurs.

Throw light on the case of CCD, what must have gone wrong, what are the possible corrections government can take to prevent such incidences.

Conclusion:

Conclude by suggesting way forward.
