We learnt about perishable and non-perishable products in our middle school. We would generally categorize food such as vegetables and fruits as perishable and mostly non-edible things as non-perishable. But this is not middle school and in the finance world, we don’t talk about aloo pyaaz ke dam.  In the finance world, we talk about shares and investments.

The more you age them, the better they get (well, most of them)!

“Paisa, paise ko kheechta hai.” Well, it doesn’t do that sitting duck in an account either. Well ok, the account thing may be incorrect but there is no significance in said growth.
