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!

Are Flipkart & Aditya Birla Fashion Exploring Synergy?

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.

Interest on Interest Waiver: Is the move justified?

Loan - a word, which in itself has both positive and negative impacts on a person. On the one hand, it is a monetary blessing which gets an individual, company or entity one step closer to achieving whatever it is they desire; and on the other hand, it is a stressful liability, which comes in the form of expensive EMIs and regular interests, failing to pay which, tends to trap the borrower in an almost inescapable trap of hefty penalty and interests.

Why taxation in automobile sector remains a big concern?

Have you ever questioned yourself, why do you buy a car? Well, it's a simple question, and we all can answer that. For commuting, maybe for security purposes, because you might not feel safe traveling through public transport. But, the biggest reason that may be valid for many people is "Sharma Ji has gifted a Fortuner to his son" or "Binod got a BMW for himself." It's the harsh truth of the Indian society that we consider cars more as a status symbol rather than looking at it as a utility. Whatever your reason may be, but sometimes just to match up with others we book significant losses for ourselves. How? Let us discuss this.

Everything about Deepak Kochhar & Money Laundering case

The dispute between India and China has come out openly in front of the entire world, and it wants the two Asian giants to make peace with each other. Still, despite several diplomatic talks and statements, the issue is far from over. In the current times, a traditional war cannot be an option unless either side triggers something big. Hence, both the nations resort to indirect attacks (proxy-wars) at each other. One move at this series of ‘proxy-war’ was the recent mobile app ban of Chinese applications by the Indian government, which resulted in a direct financial loss to China. The proxy war is a technique through which you can attack your enemy through indirect techniques. Keeping a note of the pattern of each proxy measure, both the nations can plan ahead and try to minimize the damage caused by the other nation’s move, if not completely avoid it.

Ever seen a sprint event in the Olympics? There’s an interesting thing about these races and especially the 400-meter races. The athlete who is ahead or leads in the first 100 meters doesn’t necessarily win at the end. Mostly, the one reaching the finish line first is the athlete who doesn’t look to rush from the very beginning. It’s the athlete who builds up the pace and gradually increases the speed and gives its best in the final 100 meters. Sometimes, a similar situation evolves in the corporate world between a market leader and a competitor.
