1.Why did you start your blog?
I really do not know. I had a lot of stuff lying in various places. Deepa Gopalan (now Deepa Venkataraghavan) was the then editor of Money Control and she wanted a new writer I guess. She said ‘since you have the stuff, start writing for us. So I started writing for MC. At that stage MC was not very well known and they used to send my article to Rediff.com. I then started writing for and wrote for Indian Express, Economic Times, Business Standard, etc.
Slowly I started doing a column for Money Today – when India Today published a couple of articles. Yahoo finance, Reuters, …etc. are all places where I have written apart from specialist Personal Finance magazines like Money Mantra, …etc.
I needed to create a bank where I could keep my articles and use it whenever the need was felt.
So I started blogging.
2.What do you want out of it?
Again the answer is “I do not know”. I rib, i tease, I make fun of clients, friends, builders, fund managers, investors, IFAs, Insurance companies, Insurance advisers, salesmen, bankers, regulators, etc.
In the process some of you may learn something. If you do, it is nice. I hope to just ask questions, it is for you to find the answers – the Plato way of learning, if you may!!
I tell stories that is nice for you to read, learn and remember. When I teach I tell stories, I get people to tell stories, – I do think that the Indian Gurukulam method of teaching was the best. However since that is no longer the method we need to depend on various forms of teaching. Various forms of learning include websites, seminars, You Tube, Google, Wikipedia, Coursera.org, ,,,. and the like. I do think people like me with a lot of experience in the markets can be of some help for the new comers. Hopefully will help some of the newer investors, students, and the common man who thinks and believes that to make money one should read.
3.What do you hope to accomplish with it?
the jury is still out on this. No, not really expecting to set the world on fire.
