It was a Fun & Fulfilling Saturday conducting Stock Market Games at The Shri Ram School’s Sambhavana~ Exploring Frontiers Tech Fest in Gurugram
The Equity Portfolio Game was lapped up by not just students but even their parents and their teachers
It was EduTainment that became addictive for the participants as the day wore on !…Non Winners played yet again to try to get their hands around the several Star Stock Wiz Trophies & the Overall Champion Trophy awarded by us…by Us,mean the energetic,passionate young at 35 Equity Trainer Purv Shah & me
The Fest was on the School’s Football Ground with @ 30 stalls across & all along the sides & flanked on one goal end by a really huge Stage where Coke Studio got Advaita (Sufi & Fusion) to perform in the evening at 6 pm & an expansive & colourful strands canopied Food Court at the other goal end
The Fest commenced at 10 am and went on till late afternoon with @ 2000 visiting
Our Stall was the Virtual Stock Exchange Equity Portfolio Game & feedback from the School that it was the best stall on display !
All Loved it ! ~ Kids,Parents,Teachers & us as we interacted with zest & fun with them all ~ there were 10 small Trophies & one big overall Champion Trophy to be won ~ The Overall was bagged by a Senior girl student,Aradhana Parmeshwar, who took her Equity Portfolio from Rs 10 lakhs to the highest at just under Rs 14 lakhs ~ a parent mother shooed away her young hungry kid who was tugging away at her to be taken to the food court ,because she wanted to prove her family wrong who taunted her that she could never make money in Stocks ! ~ she went on to bag a trophy ! ~ a PE teacher who lives the notorious Delhi Winter Fog but had not the foggiest idea about stocks and in fact had even closed his demat account that an overzealous bank had made him open,went on to play and bag a trophy too !
We interacted on Demonetisation & it’s impact & showed them how to assess their risk profile and stay true to it and how to assess & tackle fundamental data & risks while playing the game ~ being the NCR Region we deliberately included Listed Companies like DLF,Unitech,Spicejet & Noida Toll Bridge in the games & participants,being familiar with these names,love this…one parent wanted to know if really Unitech can revive from current under Rs 5 levels again!
🙂 We were delighted that from the Founder Shri Ram Family,the Vice Chairperson of the School’s Executive Committee,Mrs Vasvi Bharat Ram visited too & there’s a Selfie above with all of us~Mrs Vasvi Bharat Ram,from the Founder Shri Ram Family ~Mrs Sudha Sahay,Principal ~Mrs Adarsh Wadhwa,Head of the Commerce Section & her colleague Ms Neeti Sharma & Equity Trainers Purv Shah & me
Children are our Future Gen who will take on the mantle to lead & shape our Country.The late Mrs Manju Shri Ram & Padma Sri Awardee recognised this great responsibility & founded TSRS with a clear vision & mission to educate & empower the young to assume this responsibility
Am I Glad that I was part of the Fest ~ am sure Purv too echoes my sentiments !
When TSRS insisted a few months ago to quote my Professional Fees for this,I gave a wonderful Quote of India’s great legacy & contribution to the world ~ ‘Shunya’ ! ~ that’s what made it all the more fulfilling
You can’t put a price on any opportunity for mentoring young impressionable Indian student minds ~ It was more an enriching opportunity for Purv & me rather than for the School
Thank You TSRS & Thank You Mrs Adarsh Wadhwa for presenting me with this Opportunity
