Death Be Not Proud

Death Be Not Proud
by John Donne

DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee

Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee,
Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee doe goe,
Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie.
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell,
And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well,
And better then thy stroake; why swell'st thou then;
One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.

Rise and Fall !

Or should I say, Fall and Rise..
Well after the last update we saw on the refineries having a great fall in their prices, its time for a rise.

With the view to hedge against the growing Inflation, all the investors trying to buy the Oil shares. They are trying to invest into the oil market hoping that prices will increase with this inflation.

Its good news again for those who have already bought the shares.

Reliance Petro is now at 170.05/-
This is more than what I paid when i bought.. So now my luck is shining :-D

Bharat Petroleum is back on track with 445.55/- from a low of 434/-

Essar has leaped from 222/- at which it closed to cross the last high of 232/- to reach 244/-

Chennai Petroleum is however still in the Red zone infact going lower by a rupee than last 288/- to 287/-

Hmm i think I should just wait and watch..

Highest gainer today Larsen n Toubro ! awesome 6.93% rise..

I n f l a t i o n

I liked this example which they used to explain the meaning of Inflation..

"in inflation everything gets more valuable except money"

Code Red

Reliance Petro has moved to the Red zone from Green :-(

I bought it at 167/- .. 20 of them.. and now its 154/- today :-O

It was doing well after a few days since I bought. All of a sudden this sudden crash.

In the same sector is Bharat Petroleum. I was keeping an eye on it too. It has incidentally gone into red zone as well..

Its last close was around 450/- and today its on 434/-

Essar Oil closed from 232/- to 222/- today going into the Zone red too.

Chennai Petroleum has also gone from 303/- to 288/- again getting it to the zone red!

Seems the Refineries sector is doomed !!!

My first try on shares was unlucky..
lets hope things get better !

Investment: Shares and Market

Yep finally I am interested in Finance and this is to remain for good... (i hope so)
I am trying to understand How the Share the Market works..

Yes, have taken this up seriously.. well i have taken this up many time before but ended up not understanding much.. This time I hope to stick on and get a good understanding on it..

I have decided to keep aside or rather allocate some money which I can invest. Now here I am in the whole wide world of companies whose share I can buy.. Whom to pick and why and whats the latest on the shares I bot.. is what i will talk about :-)

As of now.. still searching for the right company to invest in..
Understanding how to keep track of the companies in which I can invest.. what is the company investing into? What does the company claim to do and perform in future.. These points will help deciding which shares to buy..

As of now.. I think there is alot of scope on building the infrastructure of the country. Real estate is booming, power and energy are that we need to look into..

Just my guess with the li'l knowledge I have..

But for now.. specifically I am thinking of Reliance.. what say??
I think for the long run it will be good.. But it is so expensive :-( Reliance Petro is one i can afford.. its like 162/- today....

hmm I think I shall track Reliance to start off.

Lets see if its a wise decision..

Rise and Fall

Lovely song by Craig David.. Rise and Fall..

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It's what they call,
The rise and fall !

I always said that I was gonna make it,
Now it's plain for everyone to see,
But this game I'm in don't take no prisoners,
Just casualties,
I know that everything is gonna change,
Even the friends I knew before me go,
But this dream is the life I've been searching for,
Started believing that I was the greatest,
My life was never gonna be the same,
Cause with the money came a different status,
That's when things change,
Now I'm too concerned with all the things I own,
Blinded by all the pretty girls I see,
I'm beginning to lose my integrity

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It's what they call,
The rise and fall

I never used to be a troublemaker,
Now I don't even wanna please the fans,
No autographs,
No interviews,
No pictures,
And less demands,
Given advice that was clearly wrong,
The type that seems to make me feel so right,
But some things you may find can take over your life,
Burnt all my bridges now I've run out of places,
And there's nowhere left for me to turn,
Been caught in comprimising situations,
I should have learnt,
From all those times I didn't walk away,
When I knew that it was best to go,
Is it too late to show you the shape of my heart,

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It's what they call,
The rise and fall

Now I know,
I made mistakes,
Think I don't care,
But you don't realise what this means to me,
So let me have,
Just one more chance,
I'm not the man I used to be,
Used to beeeeeeeeeee

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It's what they call,
The rise and fall !

Its time for the Survival of the fittest !

Yes its time for the survival of the fittest! And why not? People who are ready to work hard and provide better service, they should be rewarded!

If localites in Mumbai failed to show their detremination to work hard and give good service, it is their loss. North Indians who come to Mumbai or Maharashtra to earn their living come with a motive to make good money. They slog day in and day out. They are smart. They know how to get jobs and work towards it. Why should they be kicked out just because of the not so smart localities.

If they are ready to get paid less and work more than a Mumbaikar or for that matter a Marathi guy, why would people not employee them. Finally its business. Its not charity.

And we are a part of one country. It is OK if any Indian comes and work in any state. Who are these so called leaders to make rules.

Democracy does not mean bullying the poor. All that some of the leaders do is target the poor since they wont go against them. And there will always be some people supporting them which is why they feel they have the strength and freedom to hurt the poor burn buses and create fear in the minds of the people.

Its sad to see, but, Divide and rule seems to have become the National Anthem of this country!

Why dont our leaders believe in "United We stand, Divided we fall" ???

Why cant we be happy with India's progress.. why do we always have to Divide... its either religion, or caste or sub caste or now states..
Looking at the following news, its so sad to see this happening...
SP activists clash in Mumbai

The Poor being targeted. Injustice happening to the poor time and again!

Why cant we take it positively and make this to be an excellent prospect for India !
We have so many Educated Leaders, whom people look upto and follow.. is this an example to set ????

Why take it negatively, against Mumbai? Does Mumbai have less schools? So what if one wants to do something for poor and start off with his native which needs a school to educate the poor. Its not that he went and started one in US or in Delhi or in some already developing city!

If Mumbai is a city of opportunities, why cant they be proud of it. Instead of kicking people out, we can use other positive methods to make other cities as good as Mumbai. Why dont we work on getting the quality of living and working in terms of opportunities in other cities as well. If the politicians really want to do something for the nation for its people, why don't they collaborate with politicians of other state to work together in making the other states and cities better ??? They can help make other cities as good as Mumbai too !!!! Why don't they think in these lines and go to the lowest level of bashing up poor and use unethical means.

Forget learning anything positive from the British when they were ruling us, but we Indian surely have learnt the Divide and Rule Policy to its Best !!!!
Its a Disgust! Its such a shame...

When will we have Good Leaders ??? When will this system change for the RIGHT and for the BETTER ???
When can we see our leaders work for the Nation and NOT for their state/city/caste/sub-caste ???
