You got to get to know this Lady….MM….let’s call her M Square…..she’s been a part of the Bombay Stock Exchange Circuit for Donkeys years….she’s not a Broker….but knows most of them…atleast the ones’ that matter…..trades in and out all the time…an addict you might call her…cries when she loses…cries even more when she has to pay taxes…handles her own portfolio…nobody elses
Her passion for stocks supersedes all other passions,including those she may feel for her husband and kids…….she’s more Sensitive than our Sensex !…..I thinks it must run in her genes…she’s been brought up in one big joint family and in a commercial environment, as a big mill owner’s daughter…”Those were the days” she reminisces
At Two in the night she’s online and initiating a chat with me saying “What’s Up ?” and I tell her to go to sleep promising that the Sensex would be Up the next Day…We’re always popping up on MSN during Market Hours exchanging stock notes and research and how our kids are faring in school…both our daughters are in the same division…same class and same school
She’s more into Technical Analysis and reads Stock and Index charts all the time…I’m not into it at all…More a Fundamental Guy
She’s street smart and her Instincts are very sharp…she can smell a winner before it becomes one…..”I told you so !” is her common refrain when I don’t heed her call…and when she herself does not heed her own call or instinct she utters ” I’m sooooo stupid…I’m an Idiot…a fool ! ”
Her Network is very strong…all “Bhais”…no “Behens”….she’s an ace at keeping these “Bhais” at arms length…some of them are “Big Bhais” in our Capital Markets….after all this is the line where you work hard and play hard…she’s especially get’s hot when she inquires ” What’s Hot?” and expects a Stock’s name and I reply “You!”
She prefers stocks to shaking a leg while her husband,who’s a great guy, loves partying…he’s promised to take me instead of her to happening do’s…he’s invited regularly to quite a few Page 3 events…he’s in a top position in a top ad group..I’ve told him I would prefer “do’s” where I can have some intelligent conversation…he’s not yet taken me !
