The Mysterious Richie Rich- Padmanabhaswamy Temple

Treasure! Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones, The Mummy; this word usually seems so unreal that all people can think of, when they hear it for the first time, are just movies that are based on it.

Do you know how much a tree costs?

In a world where “पैसा ही बोलता है”, a thing that has nothing to do with money doesn’t really come off as valuable. Maybe this is why saving the environment doesn’t seem like a “concern” or climate change doesn’t look like a “real issue” to a lot of people.

Royal Enfield (Bullet): The most unlikely success story

Let’s say you’re given a choice: Become the owner of 15 mediocre businesses or become the owner of 2 businesses who are market leaders. What would you choose? If you thought of the 2nd option, your choice would match with what the current Managing Director of Eicher Motors, Siddharth Lal, had chosen around 17 years ago. In 2004, when Eicher Motors was struggling with overcoming mediocrity and average performance in each of its 14 different businesses, it was this decision that changed the face of the company and of the motorcycle industry for good.

India becomes the 7th Largest Stock Market: How?

Like a boat trying hard to sail through a stormy sea, the Indian stock market sailed through some extreme highs and lows in 2020. Like starting off the sail on a calm sea, the Indian stock market also started this year on a stable note. However, the storm hit in March 2020 when the high-tide of the pandemic engulfed global economies and the stock market also experienced a significant dip. After experiencing many waves of tiny highs and lows, the Indian market spiked again, this time reaching an all-time high of 50,000 points.

How Cred Burned Money To Earn A Single Rupee: Was It Really Worth It?

Remember, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit and Bappi Lahiri dancing and singing to weird but surprisingly catchy tunes, every time there was a match break? Every year, IPL picks up some big brands as its partners and sponsors, who display their annoyingly repetitive ads (we hope you’ll all agree), each time there’s a telecast break.

All About Rs 7,926 crore Transstroy Fraud

We’ll talk about Transstroy but first, let’s talk about a typical Indian scenario with respect to the spoilt brats. Whenever an exceedingly over speeding car is stopped by the traffic police in Delhi there’s one phrase that you would hear most of the times – “Tu Jaanta Hai, Mera Baap Kaun Hai?” (do you even know who my dad is?) Now, let’s get into the depth of this. This phrase represents the confidence that the defaulter carries in the sense that he is pretty sure of escaping after committing the mistake. The defaulter is confident because he knows that his dad is an influential person and therefore, the police would not be able to take any action against him.

Lakshmi Vilas Bank Merger: Factual and Informational Details

It looks like the Government of India is now playing smart rather than being a ‘Daanveer’ (over merciful donator). Just in case you are not aware of ‘Daanveer’, we’ll tell you. This name (or rather title) was conferred to a person in a community or village who always donated whenever someone went to him and pleaded for money or help. Basically, whoever went to ‘Daanveer’ never returned empty-handed. This is because that person considered this as his moral responsibility to donate money and help anyone who approached him. But, this also resulted in many people taking undue advantage of his mercy.

The tussle between Amazon and Reliance over the Future Group deal

Let’s get started on a lighter note (as usual). If I could dedicate a song to Future Group at the moment, it would be “Chan se jo toote koi sapna… jag soona soona lage...” Now, I’ll tell you the reason why I chose a sad song for Future Group and why particularly this one. You would have surely heard almost a month (or two) ago that Reliance Industries Limited has cracked the biggest ever deal of the retail sector to acquire the assets of Future Retail, and we also sent an edition of Ticker Talks on this. But now, the tables have turned!

Gaining access to someone else's resources for mutual growth really helps sometimes. Here's an example - #NehuDaVyah or #NehuPreet, you would have surely come across these hashtags or something related while scrolling through the social media. Singer Neha Kakkar is tying the knot with Rohanpreet Singh, that's what the news is. Although some people are also terming this as a publicity stunt. However, I am not concerned with whether it's a gimmick or the wedding is really happening. What I'm concerned with is the logic behind this wedding.
