Quote of the Day

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something” – Anon

Who is father of Lord Shiva?

We went to Lord Murugan Temple where Drawings of Arupadai Vedu Mentioned. As usual Abhinav started questioning.
I told Lord Shiva is Father of Lord Muruga.

Quickly He asked again, ” who is the father of Lord Shiva?”

I tried to explain that He is ” The Beginning “. But His rationale brain and age is not in position to accept my answer !!!

The course will focus on the following learning objectives:
• Learn the role of financial institutions (Banks, Brokers, and Exchanges) in your personal investments
• Understand fundamentally how debt and equity are different and when to prefer one over other
• Uncover how risk and return are correlated, and how can you take knowledgeable investment decisions

About the course
This course aims to help you understand and navigate through the maze of various investment options. The 3 week intense online course focuses on understanding various financial instruments. In this course, we will discuss two methods for understanding risk and reward. The first comes from academic finance and is called capital asset pricing. The second one, a practitioner’s view, is the antithesis of capital asset pricing, and advocates coming up with an intrinsic appraisal of the value of the instrument and then purchasing it only when it is available at a significant discount to this appraisal.

We will cover the following topics in the three week online course with LIVE web sessions :
• Financial institutions and their roles
• Debt & Equity; bonds and stock
• Mutual Funds (Dividend & Growth)
• Risk return correlation
• Capital Asset Pricing

New Time-kill Event

Thirst to Basketball:

My Brother used to Gift lot of items to Abhinav whenever he visits him. Last time he gifted Kid’s Basketball and Basket alike. Today morning I got sometime to arrange Basket alike on wall, so Abhinav can play with it. Somehow i did find someplace where ball can make minimal damage to surrounding. Abhinav is so eager in the morning to start with it because it has another flashback which i don’t want to explain because it is his nasty behavior in his friend’s birthday party yesterday.

After arrangements, I explained him about ” How to stand, leg position, How to release ball?….etc”. I shown him few times also. I did put Ball few times in pocket and Abhinav attempted & failed. He wanted to reduce the basket height. I strictly told that it is not right practice and asked him to keep trying.

He brought one Plastic Stool and he did it. Me and Priya laughed and told him again to practice it.

I failed intentionally few times and pocketed after it. Then he gained some confidence and he did it. Big pat on his back. He is so happy.

Red Light and Telephone Tower

Why do Telephone Tower has Red Light?

Abhinav and Me were preparing for Evening Walk and Play at park. While walking, he Questioned me ” Why Telephone Tower has Red Light?”
I answered him that ” Airplane and Helicopter must know the Tower and its height for not hitting them; Especially near Airports, Military and Air Force Area, Low flying zones should have this Red light”

Abhinav quickly asked ” Why not Blue, Yellow?”
Though he may not understand the Physics about color and Wavelength, I still explained him. Red color has longer wavelength and scattering property is less compared to other colors. So it is easy for Pilots or whoever wants to see it even during foggy day. remaining colors get scattered by fog and Mist.

Interesting part is ” After Play @ park, He questioned Priya for her knowhow about Red light on Tower?”.

I am so happy for his understanding and asking right questions.
