Awake..Discover and realise the hidden wealth in you....

There once lived a poor man who used to drink a lot. On one occasion, he visited a wealthy friend, who offered him cup after cup of wine.
He enjoyed himself and drank so much that finally he fell sound asleep. His friend had to leave on business. He knew that his poor companion generally lost his wits when drinking, but he felt sorry for him and wanted to help him in some way.
So before leaving, he fastened a priceless gem to the garment of the poor man as a gift. Then he departed, certain that his poor friend would be delighted when he awoke and discovered his new wealth.
But things did not work out as the rich friend had planned. The drunken man finally awoke, but he did not notice the gem which was sewn into his garment. He got bleary-eyed and went out, believing he possessed no more than a headache.
He had no home nor steady work to go to, so he wandered about from one place to another for many years, living a miserable existence.
One day he ran into his old friend. The friend was shocked by his wretched appearance.
"What's wrong with you?" he asked.
"I left a priceless gem sewn in your garment that last evening we were together. I expected you to sell it, invest the money in some business, and get on your feet at last. Why didn't you do so?"
The poor man was bewildered. "Gem?" he asked.
"What gem?"
He felt along the lining of his garment, and was astonished to find a precious stone attached to it. He had been a wealthy man all this time without realizing it.

businessline on nifty

Nifty (6,211.1)

The Nifty too, is in a short-term downtrend since the peak of 6,415. Continuation of this downtrend can take the index lower to 6,130; 6,072 and 5,964.

It needs to be noted that the index is currently poised just above its 50-day moving average.

A bounce from these levels can take the index to 6,288 or 6,360. Inability to move above the first resistance will be the cue for short-term traders to initiate fresh short positions.

Key short-term support for the index is at 5,922.

Fibonacci support as well as the presence of the 200-day moving average at this level, lends credence.

Short-term investors can buy during declines as long as the index trades above this level.

Subsequent supports are 5,770 and 5,617.

Namaste ilango sir,

Happy Birthday to you!!!

It’s your birthday...
and I’m thinking how glad I am
that you were born.
You have given me so much--
supported me, encouraged me,
cared for me; I didn't even need to ask.
I celebrate your wonderful self!
I am in awe of your boundless generosity,
your infinite kindness--that gentle inner glow
that you so freely use to warm my life.
Your birthday is as much a celebration for me
as it is for you, maybe more,
and I wish for you the best of birthdays,
the best one ever.
May each birthday be better than the last.
Most of all, I hope you will always be
As happy as you have made me

regards

-gauresh

आदरणीय गुरुवर ,
सादर चरण स्पर्श।
जन्मदिन की हार्दिक शुभकामनायें।
आप से ये जरुर सीखने की कोशिश कर रहा हुँ कि स्वार्थ के अलावा भी इस दुनिया में बहुत कुछ हैं। आप किस तरह से इतना ज्ञान बिना किसी चाह के हम लोगो पर उँडेल देता हो, यह सोच हम जैसे सामान्य व्यक्ति को हर वक्त प्रोत्साहित करती रहती है। कृपया अपना आशीर्वाद रूपी प्यार इसी तरह बनाये रखिय़ेगा।
आपका ,
विष्णु
