Happy October everyone

Welcome to the month of  October and celebrate Gandhi Jayanti, Navratri,Vijay Dashami and  Bakri Id .Dont expect much from our Markets….Sensex and Nifty too are Human and Sensitive to abuse !

As Diwali approaches early next month expect the Political Election Pitch to get more aggressive and personal and even shamelessly abusive…..some may revel at the entertainment of it all….Not me

Less you read the Newspapers and see TV,more Happy you will be !

Cheers !
