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…

India's long-term story is intact

It's quite common to find volatility in the Markets during the election year. Don't fear something odd is happening now.

I believe in the strength of India and its youth. India has the biggest pool of young people in the world. I feel even one percent of rightly educated youth can push its growth upwards employing the remaining ninety-nine percent. Further, India has the potential to become one of the richest nations on the earth if it provides free scientific education to its youth.






Coming to the investment, foreign investors may be withdrawing funds from India as they never hold the first-hand experience with our nation. The media is the only source of information for them. In that situation, there is no wonder they get frightened. But, I feel India is rich enough to stand on its own. The people have a considerable amount of money to invest in their own country. So, I advise them to buy shares of quality companies instead of buying Gold. We, the people, are the real strength of our nation. In addition to it, I recommend the government to lift restrictions on the black money and give sops to the people who want to change their black into white through investing. It is better if the Government of India allows the rich to put their black money into investments that have a lock-in period of more than four years. Extreme situations need extreme measures.

Market strategy until the next General Elections

There is some weakness apparently visible in the markets now. But, don't fear! It's quite common to find the volatility as this is an election year. And nobody knows when Modi announces the elections. 
Let's assume next General Elections are ten months away. How can we formulate our market strategy these ten months? I hope you are following at least ten stocks at a time. Always buy any of these stocks if they dive more than expected. If you are a salaried person, you can buy small amounts of stocks on every dip depending upon the availability of cash. This is the main point of our strategy. Don't sell any stock these ten months. 
You may ask me when to sell a stock. The best time to sell is after the new government takes over the reins. The market will be buoyant then. It will certainly make the northward movement. So, remember the right time to buy is during the election year. And the right time to sell is during the first two years of the new government.

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…
