Happy to say that my journey on the path of mutual funds is going well. I am now slowly accumulating quality mutual funds whenever my finances permit. And I am also reducing my debt successful at my wife's insistence. I will always be thankful to her for that.
It has been 26 years since I became a rationalist. I have seen many bad days in my long secular career but I came over them with the help of my immediate family ( my brother, mom, wife, father and uncle). I will always be grateful to them for what they did to me.
I faced a lot of financial troubles during the present TDP Government due to the late payments. I took many loans and suffered a lot as I had to support three families. So, I am not at all comfortable with the government.
I predict no national party is going to form the government on its own at the centre. Only the party which gets the support from the regional parties ( the YSRCP, the TRS and the DMK etc) can form the government. The exit polls may predict an ND…

Excellency punished - The plight of AP Model Schools

The UPA government and its progressive forces have established national wide English Medium schools in order to serve the backward areas of India. These have been named 'Model Schools' by the UPA. They handed over these schools to the respective state governments three years back.

In AP, the situation is entirely different. From the beginning, the implementation of the programme faced major difficulties due to the pressure from illegal private schools and junior colleges as education is the biggest money making and money laundering sector in Andhra Pradesh. The big private educational institutions influenced the then Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar and created many hurdles in the process. But, Mr Kiran had to implement the Model School Programme as he received many ultimatums from the then Manmohan Government. But, the state government never cared much about the schools later.

The present TDP Government too not very much interested in the Model Schools though the results from the schools are excellent. The Model Schools are showing good results and are in great demand from the public. But, it seems the Government has second thoughts because the government is directly being run by the director of a big private educational institution. It's true the successive state governments of Andhra Pradesh played a huge role in killing the government educational and medical institutions. Now, they are also trying to destroy the Model Schools by not providing enough funds. The government wants to kill the morale of employees by not paying salaries regularly. The employees of the schools are receiving the pay only once in three or five months. Is the government right in doing so? There are no service rules till now. No health cards are provided to employees even after five years of service. Is there something cooking up?

Successfully crossed 100,000 mark

I have successfully accumulated more than 100,000 shares of ten different companies until now. I will add more shares to my kitty in the future if I have any money available with me. Further, I don't want to have more than ten companies at a time in my portfolio. I believe persistence and patience are keys to success in investing





Beware of Brokers!

Buying a land or house is not an easy task. That's why there is a proverbial saying in Telugu " Illu katti choodu, pelli chesi choodu" ( Building a house is as difficult as arranging a marriage between two people ).  But nowadays the brokers who make matches and property deals have become high-tech.
Let's see how the real-estate brokers cheat us

1. Most of the real-estate brokers supply you with fake documents. You better not believe them at the face-value

2. Brokers always try to charge 2% or 3% commission on a deal. They usually quote the higher price for any property as they want to get more commission. They always work for sellers and for themselves.

3. They don't want you to meet the real owner of the property

4. In order to find out the real owner of the property, we should always get the EC from the concerned registrar office

5. Try to approach the real owner of the property by seeing the photo and address of the owner that are given on the EC

6. Always t…

Why I remain loyal to my portfolio?

There are many reasons why I stay focused on my portfolio. The most important reason is the Indian macro realty is intact and its long-term story is secure. Further, I don't believe the reign of any single party deciding the fate of this nation. The market and the businesses here are never dependent on political parties for their survival. In addition to it, the external forces too are not permanent but are cyclical. It is clear from the human history that the world and the markets have seen many Trumps and Modis. It's frivolous to think that any single phenomenon or any single person having the capability to kill the market and the businesses.

I am very sorry to say that the market is a den of big gamblers. These people come to market from many places like cricket betting. They generally go for very very short-term trading. They flood the market with their bets when no other betting options are available. They often disappear in milliseconds when they can't understand th…
