A New Beginning :-) Happy Makara Sankranti !!!

Dear investors, friends & learners,

Happy Makara Sankranti, Pongal, Lohri, Bihu, Khichdi, Uttarayan and much much more to all of you... So many names for just one festival in India :-)

Sankranti means movement of the Sun from one Rashi (Zodiac) to the other. Of course, we have 12 Sankrantis during the year, but Makara (Capricorn) Sankranti signifies the movement of the sun from Dhanu Rashi (Sagittarius) into Makara Rashi (Capricorn).

Today is a very special day which is celebrated all over India. A day which signifies the end of the cold winter days and the beginning of the warm spring. This is the period when nature is at its best, the trees and plants are adorned with healthy new leaves and the crops are gloriously ready for harvest. This is the time when the climate is neither too hot nor too cold making it perfect for all of us !!!

Since India is primarily an agricultural country, a lot of festivals are celebrated with an attitude of gratitude to the Almighty for giving bountiful crops to feed everyone. Makara Sankranti is a harvest festival where everyone joyously shares their yield with their near and dear ones. This is a day when everyone and everything which enabled the harvest are thanked - the Animals, the Sun, Mother Earth, the Tools & Equipments and most importantly, Mother Nature for providing the best climatic conditions for the crops. 

We always need to remember that what we are today is because of Mother Earth. She has given us everything possible. Whatever we have created is from her. Let us have gratitude for all that we have received and humbly take her blessings. Sadly, in the last few decades, we have been exploiting Mother Nature for our selfishness and it is high time that we realize, we are nothing without her...

Today is a day when we harvest the previous year's crop and begin the new one with enormous hope and humility. 

Let us all, in the same way, begin our investments in solid companies with a new ray of hope and continue to learn and be humble. Let us collectively pray for all the companies to give their best and serve the people with the best of their products, so that our investments grow with the Indian Economy :-)

Wishing you and family a Happy Makar Sankranti :-) Enjoy yourselves...
