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…

Why is it good to buy an Android One phone?

I bought a Samsung Galaxy smartphone six years back when I got my first Government job. That was my first smartphone. But it turned out to be the biggest disappointment after spending Rs 11,000. My colleagues who bought Micromax and Celkon smartphones at the same time for just half the price of my Samsung phone were the happier lot. My Samsung Galaxy gave me a lot of troubles compared to the cheapest phones bought by my friends. Frankly, I could not find out any reasons as I was having less technical knowledge than I am holding now.

After a while, I have taken up another Government job in my native district where I am presently working. I started hating my Samsung more now. My hatred towards it had grown so huge that I decided to buy another phone. So now, I don't want to waste my money on some high-end phones which give me a lot of headaches. So, I decided to buy a Micromax Fire 2 on Amazon at Rs 6000. Surprisingly the new phone had never given me trouble. It worked like anything. I felt very happy but I wanted to find reasons for Samsung's failure. At last, I found reasons behind the efficient working of my Micromax phone. According to a tech-geek from Quora forum, the Samsung does not use the android as it is given by Google but it tweaks with it. It wantonly allows bloatware and adware in order to make the profit. Automatically the phone's performance falls. On the other hand, Micromax always uses stock android as it is given by Google. It never makes any alterations to it. That's why the performance of the Micromax phone was good.


But, what is android One?

Android One is the software OS originally intended for cheap smartphones aimed at encouraging the spread of smartphones to the masses. It gives the users stock Android experience and hardly falters on any scale. Further, Android One is regularly updated and upgraded by Google and security dispatches are dispatched on monthly basis. That's why Android One turned out to be the safest and secure software in the world. According to the agreement between Google and the manufacturers, the later will have nothing to do with the software on the phone. The just provide the specified hardware. Now, I am using android One phone and very much impressed by it, and this is the reason why I am writing this article.



Why not make android One your next phone?

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…
