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.
