Why do I like Linux?

Here are some reasons why I use a Linux Operating System:

1. Linux OS is free. It involves neither direct costs nor indirect costs.

2. It is virus-free. Most of the times, it provides a secure environment. We need not use any anti-virus.

3. When I used Windows OS, I had to spend a considerable amount on its security and re-installation of Windows even though I used anti-virus. ( Note: Most of the Indians use a pirated version of Windows which make them vulnerable to many virus attacks). On the other hand, Linux always provides updates and security patches for free.

4. Most of the applications on Linux are free to use and get regular updates.

5. Windows is not an Open source OS. So, nobody knows what codes are in there. But Linux is an Open Source OS and anyone can read the code and suggest improvements. It gets regular improvements from expert developers all over the world who work for free.

6. Linux OS works much faster than Windows OS and easy to operate. Once we get accustomed to it, we will never revert to Windows.

7. Most of the Government Organisations around the World and many private organisations like Facebook, Google and Microsoft etc use Linux OS.

8. All the Android phones run on Linux OS.

9. There are many types of Linux Operating Systems available now. From them, I consider Linux Mint and Ubuntu Mate as the best ones. At present, I am using both Linux Mint and Ubuntu on my system. ( It is called dual booting )

Why I am a free-thinker

A free-thinker is the one who doesn't accept any theory without sufficient evidence. I have no doubt in calling myself a free-thinker. I am very happy to say I have freed my thought from religious or any other sectarian bias since a very young age ( at 16 ).
We must always understand the World as it is not as we want it to be. Our opinions should always be formed on the basis of reason and empirical evidence, not on authority, tradition or dogma. Besides, science has become a big help to the human race in the objective understanding of the World. So, it can only form a solid foundation for our knowledge.
I believe the matter is the fundamental substance in nature and everything including our thoughts and emotions are the effects of the matter. Nothing other than matter (and its different forms) exist in the Universe. Our thoughts and emotions have physical basis as they are the functions of our brain. 
Human beings are essentially rational but everywhere they are chained by do…

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.
