Learning Stock Market Trading on YouTube

Just try to search something about stock trading in Youtube and you’ll be bombarded with enormous number of videos teaching you how to make profits in the stock market. These days COVID19 is at its peak probably, people are suffering, Governments are trying their best to educate people and restore normalcy. However most importantly there is a fear of job loss in every working person’s mind almost. Some jobs have definitely been lost but new opportunities are also opening up, and it’ll certainly take more time for a complete normalcy to return. Probably this is why people are looking for a second income and hence exploring stock trading as an option. I have seen many people who were never interested in stock markets before COVID19, are now learning the same. There are thousands of videos in Youtube teaching stock market trading to common people. Some people have started stock trading during COVID19, maybe because they were really interested in it and the lockdown gave them a chance to e

The Beauty of The Indian Languages

Singing is one of my favorite pass times. I have accounts in the karaoke platforms like Starmaker & Smule where I sing on various Indian tracks whenever time permits. Once, I decided to sing a popular Telugu song originally sung by Late Shri SPB Sir and I don’t know Telugu. The lyric of the song was written in only English and Telugu. I can’t read Telugu and it’s very difficult to read/write proper Indian pronunciation in English. If the lyric has “ADE” written it and you don’t know the language, then it’s tough to decide whether to pronounce it “AADEY” or “AID” or something else. So finally I had to listen to the song, a tiny portion at a time and write it down in my own mother tongue i.e. Odia (Language of Odisha) with respect to its actual pronunciation. If you know any Indian language well, then you can figure out that almost any kind of sound can be written using them. This is how I managed to sing a song in a language that I don’t know, with kind of ok pronunciation. Now, t

How Does The JIO Set Top Box (STB) Work?

I’ve been asked this question numerous times by different people. JIO is still a new entrant in Fiber Broadband space hence not many people know about the details. Surprisingly, a few months ago when I got my JIOFiber installed, the technicians who came to my premises to install it, were not very knowledgeable about their product. Let me tell you my story here: Where would somebody want to use a STB? Definitely with the TV, isn’t it? My TV is in my living room and my computer where I need the internet is in another room. So I got the JIOFiber cabling done to the room where I have my computer and they installed the JIO router there too. When the time came for installing the STB they asked me for the TV and I showed them the living room. Then they said that the STB must be connected to the router via LAN cable, hence it can’t be installed in the other room because that’ll require additional cabling/wiring. Having no solution in mind at that moment I agreed to their suggestion of installi

Should We Boycott VIDESHI (foreign) Products?

I hope you remember the appeal from our Honourable Prime Minister about being “Atmanirbhar” and accept “Swadeshi” or “Vocal for Local”. Please try to recall what kind of thoughts came to your mind after hearing it on that day. I’ve my own opinions on it and have met many people who think in a different way about it than me too. People think about it primarily in 3 different ways: Some think this is a great initiative. Some others say this is good but impossible to achieve. Then some say this is not good and is a kind of discrimination. We’ll talk more about above points, not to derive a conclusion but to analyze the available data more to help reach a conclusion. Is it a great initiative? Yes, because: Our country has no dearth of industrious and entrepreneurial people, they just need some kind of encouragement to bring their dreams into reality. These are the people who when doing something, also create employment opportunities for others. So if we as a country encourage such entrepre

Increasing Cases of Corona Virus (COVID-19) in India

Sometimes I think, so many measures are being taken to control COVID-19 or Corona infection, why the heck the cases are increasing every day then? Some of my thoughts & observations below: I see many people going out every day to the market or supermarket to buy provisions. For some of them going out is so unavoidable that they once go for rice, then again for pulses and maybe once more for vegetables. I simply fail to understand how much more education and awareness is required to make these guys aware of the gravity of the situation! And yes, this is in a huge city, not in an interior village. Then comes the other category that when goes to buy groceries or vegetables, takes a few family members along. I’m sure you’re not going to buy more than two bag fulls of ration at a time, and that’s something one person can handle, then what’s the need to expose other family members and endanger their lives too? If you have to buy something heavy like a 25kg rice bag, then go twice maybe o
