It also happened to be Children’s Day yesterday….always keep the child within alive

It was a pre lunch session for an hour or two…covered… Insider Trading & Integrity…Chasing Passion & not Paisa…seeking good mentorship & being with fun people,to learn from the best like a sportsperson…to evolve

…Oh ! & of course how to spot pedigree companies & people …mentioned a few of them to highlight Controversies & Corporate Misgovernance &  when to give a second chance too!…to read & read & read & then again read some more

…spoke of Richard Branson & his book ‘Screw It ,Just Do it’ that changed my opinion of him to one of respect…how both of us have one thing in common in that he has cheated death several times on his adventure trips while I have too but not out of choice in health issues,Sahara sandstorm,BSE Bomb Blast & a car accident

….to trust to grow,to see the best in people,to B+ which also is my blood group which they knew having read me up before coming across….to be decisive & responsible…be curious to expand knowledge…be vibrant…attract people to you,who love being around you….share,not be arrogant,let the E-go

Reiterated Theory without Application & Academics without Action is pointless….Eugene Fama & his Efficient Market Hypothesis & whether India & Insider Trading are truly Inseparable despite SEBI’s strengthening regulations

At the start itself posed a question to them ” What did you notice is or is not there in my office?”…a few answers came forth like “No Noise” or “Less Staff” or “Open Glass Cabins”…Yeah all of these but what I was seeking was ” No TV with Stock & News Channels blaring away” & it did come from one eager young gentleman who was promptly rewarded with a gift

Enjoyed interacting with them & I hope these fine young ladies & gentlemen took away at least one good thing from the meet
