How many occasions have you been indifferent ?

We have witnessed in our times some issues like the Kashmir problem, Sri Lankan problem, Palestinian problem persisting for years. Relationship problems between a husband and wife are in no way different from these. There was a big industrialist, who thought only about business; even at home. He had a very talkative wife.
Initially, he tolerated the constant nagging of his wife, but as the business grew., he became impatient with her. So in order to find a solution, he approached a saint. The wife came to know of this. She was furious and immediately confronted him.
‘I heard that you went to a saint to discuss about me? What advice did he give you?' she asked.
Sorry! He has asked me not to reveal it to you,' said the Husband. Oh! So, that saint is more important to you than me? Tell me the truth at once! What is the great advice he has given you which you feel I should not know?' 'He taught me a mantra. But he has told me not to tell you,' replied the husband calmly.
'I am asking you for the last time. Tell me what mantra he taught you. If you don't tell me, right now, I shall pack my bags and go away to my mother's house,' screamed the wife erupting like a volcano!
'Sorry you have to forgive me. The saint has ordered me never to reveal the mantra... that too, to you.'
'So, matters have come to such an extent, is it? I am going to my mother's house immediately,' said the wife. She packed her bags and started to leave.
Now the husband was jumping with joy!
'Success! Success! The mantra worked! He shouted gleefully.
For almost a week, he was blissfully at peace, free from his nagging wife. But after that, he felt as if the whole house was empty and silent. He began to feel terribly lonely, and almost became half mad because he missed his wife a lot! Now, that is a totally different story!
The truth is however very simple. Many husbands in our country expect their wives to be possessive about them. They long to be tied down by love; but at the same time, they also want to be free. Both are however not possible at the same time! A wife who wishes to control her husband with love would surely be a stumbling block to his freedom.
Long ago, I was travelling with one of my students on a bike in Bangalore. It was night time. At a turning, all of a sudden there was a car without headlights plying on the wrong side of the road. My student was quick enough to turn the bike away and we had a narrow escape. But the indicator lamps of the bike were damaged in this encounter.
The driver of the car who had come on the wrong side simply drove away, as if nothing had happened. My student could not control his anger. `Shall we give a chase and stop him? Or shall we inform the police?' he was seriously thinking on those lines. Finally when I managed to calm him down, I discovered a truth.
My student was not angry at the damage to his bike or the possibility of an accident. He was angry because the driver had left without even uttering one word of apology. That hurt him the most.
Do you know when a person gets hurt the most? It may not be through insult or harsh words. It is when someone considers the other less valuable than any material possession; then the person gets deeply wounded.
So, being indifferent to another is the greatest insult one can inflict. Husbands, please be aware! On how many occasions have you been indifferent towards your wife?

businessline on nifty

Nifty (6,176.1)

The Nifty bounced strongly, cushioned by key support at 6,000. The index surged 180 points, breaching its 50- and 21-day moving averages in the previous week. Nevertheless, it is currently facing significant resistance at 6,215 level.

An emphatic upmove beyond this resistance will imply that the short-term trend has turned positive. The index can trend northwards to 6,300 and 6,350.

Traders can initiate fresh long positions in that scenario. But failure to do so will shackle the index to trading in a wide range between 6,000 and 6,215 for a while.

Key supports are seen at 6,100 and 6,000. Supports below 6,000 are at 5,924 and 5,982.

Can any one share their specific or to the point opinion on this (apart from generic or neutral studies) to use then in specific "following"

Calls money is >1000 crores and puts money in around 300 crores on a first day.
OI pcr > 1
rupee value pcr is 0.33

what it suggest for the month?
will nifty close high by CE buyers holding nifty up?
will nifty get punished due to CE buyers pushing it down and holding due to 1k cr premium pack?
what happened in the past with same set of data sets?

On a serious learning note!

GM everybody,

NIFTY

I feel that Puts are being written as the premium on Nifty is very high.

hence > pcr.

Namaskaaram GuruJi and Brother & Sisters,

Good Morning.

Have a Good Day and Great WeekEnd. Vaalaga Nalamudan and Valamudan.

Today is my last day journey with TradeInNiftyOnly.

Are you unselfish? That is the question. If you are, you will be perfect without reading a single religious book, without going into a single church or temple.

- Swami Vivekananda.

Hello ..... Good Bye
