Even I was an entrepreneur…

Being Entrepreneur

It was in 2007, when I started doing my CFA from ICFAI. It is a long-distance education program and we used to have weekend classes, and sometimes after working hours. That time I was bitten by the owning-a-website bug and Dhakkanz had not born yet.

One fine day, post our class, our teacher asked us if anyone would want to take a responsibility of making an emailing list for sharing the sample papers that he would send. I found that as an opportunity and took that up. Firstly it started with sharing the papers which our teacher used to send. Later it became a way to sharing queries and answers. But slowly I felt the need of making a group email ID which could be used to send emails and their replies to and people could subscribe. That time around 15-16 students had shared their email IDs with me. Continue reading

How do men respond to Shopping

I read this article on Shopping somewhere and shamelessly copied it as I thought this was hilarious, I started crying with laughter. Please take a moment to read the whole thing.

After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Walmart. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women – she loves to browse.

Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Walmart

2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-
