Whoa it was Dussehra yesterday, the festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil. As kids we used to make Ravana and then kill it just to relive the memories of the day and to remind ourselves that no matter what happens good things always win over bad
You must be wondering why am I writing all this as all of us know it pretty well already. In today’s world though Ravana does not exist but it does exists in form of poverty, illiteracy or otherwise. Continue reading “5 Financial bad habits to defeat this Dussehra”
Few days back I was sitting with a group of young and enthusiastic people who began their journey of future i.e. they just started working.

But the biggest reason was, it used to be a time to buy new things viz. clothes, utensils, furniture etc. Many of us must have heard our parents saying “We will buy a new car or a new fridge on Diwali”. Those were the times when most of us did not have much money to spend and hence people used to wait for Diwali to buy things they needed. Continue reading “The War of NEEDS v/s WANTS”
