When people read my blogs they may be getting a feeling that I do not watch TV at all. I do. I have a very old TV – and the clarity is not too great, caveat.
I make it a point to watch ‘Comedy Circus’ and I guess it is an amazingly good program, and I love the creativity of the writing team and the actors too. Of course not every Sat and Sun I am able to…but I do make an attempt.
I try to watch the Hindi movie nostalgia on Times Now channel – on a Sunday at about 12 or thereabouts.
I watch Sukhishivam’s talk on Sat and Sun morning on Sun TV – but since it eats into the running time, I miss it. Sadly it is not repeated AT ALL.
I try catching some glimpses of cricket…but rarely in full.
I love watching Tom and Jerry…and if I find the zillionth repeat of a show, I still watch, laugh and NEVER change channels. Walt Disney the creative genius, salutations to you.
While watching these channels I do land up at Cnbc, Cnbc awaaz, ET, Bloomberg UTVi, …and since a few of the kids working there are known, I watch it if they are doing the show. Sometimes it is friends who are being interviewed..so I watch. Mostly for amusement or finding something to write on my blog.
Like yesterday I heard the following amusing things:
1. If you want safety over a long period of time put your money in Public Provident Fund.
My comment: Obviously this veteran had not heard of REAL return.
2. Do not buy insurance as an investment…blah blah blah.
My comment: The word TERM INSURANCE was not mentioned even ONCE.
3. Do not deal in direct equities – be in mutual funds and life insurance only.
My comment: Said by a banker – who does not have an equity target.
4. You must deal in direct equities.
My comment: Said by a broker – easy to guess it is not?
5. He has invested in too many mutual fund schemes
My comment on 3, 4 and 5:
NEVER TRUST A PERSON WHO EARNS A COMMISSION OR A SALARY – famous words of TALEB slightly modified.
