Interesting equation on Power of Compounding

Image
In first instance, start with say Re 1 and earn 1% compounded everyday ... at the end of 365 days, your capita becomes Rs.37.80

In the latter, you start with Re 1 and lose 1% everyday - then see how much you are left with.

Why are you not getting "good" marks in University ???

Image
Welcome to the REAL REASON !

I literally need to be quarantined in order to study. Every single thing in my house makes me want to do stuff other than studying.

PS - By "good" I meant parents-approved marks.

Aadhar : Are we taking things too far ?

Image
Since the time Indians were told to link Aadhar to EVERYTHING, there have been numerous jokes being circulated on Whatsapp. What we didn't know that those jokes would one day turn into to a hilarious/ridiculous (whichever way you look at it reality).




Thats's pretty much the story. You now require your Aadhar enrollment number for every single thing in this desh.

Is RBI destroying the Indian Economy ?

Image
Finance minister Arun Jaitley portrayed the Rs 2,11,000 crore recapitalisation of public sector banks that he announced last week as the first essential step to reviving the economy. He is right: bank credit has stopped growing because all but a handful of public sector banks are so mired in irrecoverable debt that they have lost the capacity to lend.



Jaitley believes that the fault lies entirely with the bank managers, who have lent ‘excessively’ in a ‘non-transparent manner’, and then ‘hidden’ their actions ‘under the carpet’. What is non-transparent is the meaning he attaches to these words. Is he saying that the fault lies entirely with public sector bank managers, who have been corrupt, inefficient or both (which is not a surprise; India seems to be the land of corruption), and have then hidden their misdeeds?

One look at the sheer volume of bad loans and its composition shows that the problem is far too pervasive to be attributable to the misdeeds of public sector bank managers, a…

40% seats go vacant on India's new Bullet Train

Image
As the Modi government proceeds with the grandiose plans for a Bullet Train between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, a RTI query has revealed that over 40 percent of seats on all the trains on this sector are going vacant causing huge losses to Western Railway.

According to RTI replies, only in the past one quarter, the Western Railway's staggering losses on this sector is nearly Rs 30 crore, or around Rs. 10 crore per month. "The Indian government is over-enthusiastic and plans to spend more than Rs 1 lakh crore on the Bullet Train project, but it has not done its homework properly," Galgali said, adding it raises serious question marks on the viability of the Bullet Train project, whenever it comes up. On the Ahmedabad-Mumbai route served by a total of 31 mail/express trains with a seating capacity of 706,446, only 398,002 seats were booked, resulting in a revenue of Rs 26,74,56,982 against the estimated expected income of Rs 42,53,11,471, spelling a massive loss of Rs 15,78,54,…

Ease of doing Business - India jumps from 130 to 100.....and that's GOOD NEWS

Should we really stand up for the National Anthem ???

Image
YES. We should. Why ? Because we must show some RESPECT for our country.  For what it has done over the years, what it has achieved and how it has helped us. Nobody out here is actually scared of the law. So there is no fear factor. Some countries instill so much of fear in their citizens that debates like these never see the light of the day (One plus point India has. Freedom). Three cheers to democracy !!
 You may crib about a hell of a lot of stuff. But let's not forget one thing : India has a population of 1.324 billion as of 2016 (it is safe to assume that it has been growing ever since). Handling that many people, providing facilities to them and most importantly making sure everyone is happy is NOT an easy task. 
More kids + more school seats =  lack of jobs.     Also More vehicles per family = more traffic + more accidents + more pollution = less healthy India



Count the number of problems you encounter everyday and multiply it by 12. That's probably how many of them ke…

I'm lovin' Southside High #Riverdale Reviews

Image
Jughead officially enters Southside High and we get to know why the parents of Riverdale want to keep their kids away from the the other side. I don't blame them but after seeing such "good" people in Riverdale who are killing their own kids, I'm dying to see some bad people who have each other's backs. Everybody say hi to the Ghoulies, Jingle Jangle and Toni Topaz (I love the pink in her hair! *already a fan*).



Veronica has all of sudden turned from blaming her dad for the murders to being all honey and sugar over him : Introducing her friends, calling Archiekins to dinner and all. I sort of stand with Hermoine on this one. "Give your father some time. Don't rush into it". Forget the father I say, give US some time !

Archie has been a disappointment since episode 1 of season 2. I don't blame KJ Apa, but somehow Archie is running way ahead of what is being revealed to us. That's why even the other characters cannot understand his frustratio…

Dhinchak Pooja is rockin' & shockin'

Image
Dhinchak Pooja is in the house baby Yo Yo.... Bigg Boss 11 mein ab mazaa aayega kyuki ab woh aa rhi hai Yo Yo.... Kaano mein aag lagegi boss . These were the answers that I got from my friends on Snapchat who were watching the Sunday episode special. Everyone was like are yaaaar. Only thing is I don't know if that was said in an OMG-I-can't-see-BB-anymore kind of way or in an I-feel-so-sorry-for-the-inmates kind of way. But you know what guys, whether you like it or not she's there now, and you can't do anything about it other than stop watching Bigg Boss (Which I doubt will happen. Everyone's addicted).



But I have to say two things.
1. I admire that girl's guts.
2. Bigg Boss just played their trump card.

Dhinchak Pooja isn't a robot or some alien from outer space. She is just a normal girl who felt she was good at singing (or rapping), who had quite a few supporting friends, a red scooty, an Audi (maybe hired) and loads of guts to shoot a totally cringe w…

Facebook needs a DISAGREE button

Image
Hell Yeah ! Why ? Simply to say "I Disagree With You" without actually saying anything or giving an explanation. Social Media is a free world. You can say whatever you want. It's your platform. But everything has a limit. Sometimes people don't understand things. They take it the wrong way. A just and serious cause becomes a joke.



What do you do at this point ? You know what is happening is wrong and also that it's none of your business to interfere. But you can't let it go. At the same time you don't want to give comments and initiate a debate online for everyone to see (because obviously, no one likes being reprimanded on their own post). You just want to get your point across without saying anything. So what do you do ? Hit the Disagree button!

Saamnewala gets the message and can ask for justifications in messenger if it affects him/her that much. Problem solved.

PS - I'm not asking for the DISAGREE button on pictures. That'll be rude. On share…

Southside Serpents Rock #RiverdaleReviews

Image
Okay. First things first. I've binge watched all of Riverdale's Season 1 episodes. They were too good. Only spoiler was the way in which Jason's murderer was revealed. Nothing in that episode made me go hawwww. I had firmly decided not to watch season 2 which was releasing on 11th October. Only the last scene, of Jughead putting on the Southside Serpent jacket and Betty's reaction with that awesome background music made me type Riverdale on Netflix again.



But season 2 first 2 episodes were a bit of a let down. With all that promo hype and all, half of all the main scenes was actually just a dream. And we're sort of sick of that in India; all daily soaps have that kind of precap every 3 weeks. The first episode would have been a total waste had it not been for the Southside Serpents. I'm starting to like these bad guys who are willing to do anything for Jughead's dad. Talk about brother love. They were the guys who made watching both episodes worthwhile. An…

Who gets credit for reduced fireworks this Diwali ?

Image
This was my first Diwali in Bombay. All these years I have been celebrating this festival of lights at my paternal grandparents place in Pune. I called it the "escape". And escape from what ? From the pollution because we always believed that Bombay was way worse than Pune in terms of firework induced pollution. So this year, my family and I were mentally prepared for the blast of noise that was to come upon us. However we were pleasantly surprised with the substantial reduction of fireworks.

At first I wasn't sure who to give credit to for this wonderful change. India has a large population. Step out of your building and you find a number of specimens you never imagined existed. Aliens would be damn impressed by the Indians. Definitely. I'll give you the types of people I've come across this Diwali and you can then decide who gets credit.

Kids between the age group 9-15 have become very smart and mature for their age. They understand the problems that the envir…
