Two Quotes caught my eye in the past two days… Disagree with Both
One by Shankar Sharma in his print interview to Economic Times and the Other by Shah Rukh Khan on a TV Show
Never Met the Guy but have always been amused by Shankar Sharma’s views on Capital Markets… he loves playing to the gallery … has promoted First Global
“Markets are not there for Morality”
“..this drive against corruption… will reduce GDP Growth, and erode corporate profitability”
“if lynch mobs are going to run the country, we are heading for a very dark period”
Good Lord !… What’s this Guy saying… In a nutshell what he implies is that don’t cleanse a rotten system, biased against retail investors, else it will cleanse off profits…. Corruption, Manipulation and Insider Trading are required for Profitability !
Or am I being too Moralistic or Hypocritical, as Shankar Sharma provokes us not to be !
I just can’t agree with him here… and to steal Ronit Roy’s Signature Line in ‘Adalat’, a popular TV Serial “Am I Right,or am I right !” … he plays the central lawyer character of K D Pathak who has till date never lost a case and solved many crimes while defending the accused
And Shah Rukh Khan !
…he’s been all over the TV last night promoting Ra-One and giving out Ra-One Dolls… live on Zee and in Surat at the Finale of the Little Champs Singing Star… Ten Year old singing sensation,Azmat won this… then on the Star Plus Recorded Finale of Hritik Roshan’s ‘Just Dance’… Mumbai’s Ankan Sen won this one… and then on Colors Finale of ‘India’s got Talent, Season 3’… won by Suresh & Vernon Group
“If you have this sort of Talent,you don’t need to be Humble !”
This is what the Badshah of Bollywood asserted to Guest Star Shweta Salve who was dancing the Salsa in the Finale of ‘India’s got Talent, Season 3’… Incidentally the Runners up here were a Dance Group ‘Bad Salsa’ from Kolkata… Donna and Akash were the children who performed the Salsa like born to it !… out of this world…. they lost out narrowly and there was a stunned silence and a few heartbreaks all around… they were strong favourites for the title… I simply loved them !… wished they had won
