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…

How the Demonetization went wrong



The Prime Minister of India announced the demonetization of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes on 8 November 2016. Sri Narendra Modi explained that he wanted to give a big blow to the black money hoarders and to eliminate the counterfeit notes from the Indian Economy. But, it turned out to be the creator of another black economy. Still now, the people of India have been suffering due to the shortage of cash. It is highly doubtful whether the demonetization has achieved the intended objectives.


It is my first-hand experience with the Indian Economy that Modi miserable failed in achieving his declared aims. The bankers of India have become millionaires within a few days thanks to the demonetization. The hoarders of black money struck the deals with the bankers for the exchange of black money offering them 30% to 40% share in them. The bankers will always be thankful to Modi and it is no wonder they hang the photos of Modi along with their Gods in their newly built houses.


The process of the Demonetization has been implemented without any serious deliberations and shock absorbents. India is a country of 50% illiteracy though the government claims 75% literacy. In addition to it, digital education is a mere 25% in India. In that situation, how can people adapt to a new cashless economy? Didn't Modi know this? I think he knew that the people would suffer due to the demonetization but he had to take the decision because he wanted to tell the public that he was doing something on black money.


Is Modi really successful in finishing off the black money? No, the demonetization has become a big failure on his part and the innocent are suffering a lot due to its consequences. The result of the process actually facilitated more hoarding as the 2000 notes are more easy to hide. A suitcase which used to carry Rs 1 crore before demonetization is now carrying Rs 2 crore. A secret drawer of the bathroom which had the capacity of Rs 5 crore now hiding Rs 10 crore black money. Do you still think the demonetization helped to curb the black economy?

Knowledge is Power 









Corruption has become the order of the day in all government offices in India. This is not good for this country. All the policy makers and people at large must take concrete action to root the corruption out of this country. Otherwise, there will be no future for this "Great" Nation.

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
