Books

I ordered following 2 books today - 
  1. Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
  2. Vyakti Ani Valli by P. L. Deshpande
The first one was suggested by Shekhar, and the latter one I have already read once, but would like to have a copy of the same. Recently, I had started reading "Animal Spirits" by George Akerlof & Robert Shiller. It has been written on a very well thought out concept, but I felt it was a bit boring. So I never reached beyond 30 pages, after which I simply returned the book to SEBI library. Before that I completed Steve Jobs's biography - "Stever Jobs" by Walter Isaacson. I will write a separate post to discuss the book.

Raja Shivchhatrapati Lyrics

इंद्र जिमि जंभ पर… बाडव सुअंभ पर… रावण सदंभ पर… रघुकुलराज है !
पौन बारिबाह पर… संभु रतिनाह पर… ज्यों सहसबाह पर… राम द्विजराज है !
उदरात माउली… रयतेस साउली… गडकोट राउळी… शिवशंकर हा
मुक्तीची मंत्रणा… युक्तीची यंत्रणा… खल दुष्टदुर्जना… प्रलयंकर हा
संतास रक्षितो… शत्रू निखंदतो… भावंडभावना… संस्थापितो
ऐसा युगेयुगे… स्मरणीय सर्वदा… माता-पिता-सखा… शिवभूप तो
दावा दृमदंड पर… चीता मृगझुंड पर… भूषन वितुंड पर… जैसे मृगराज है !
तेज तम‍ अंस पर… कान्ह जिमि कंस पर… त्यों मलिच्छ बंस पर… सेर सिवराज है !
जय भवानी, जय शिवाजी !Thanks to Nik for sending this.In case any of you want to read the whole poem you can visit this link.

NCFM

Finally gave the last exam which I had targeted in the year 2010. It took me 7 months to give my first NCFM exam. But soon got into study mode for rest of the exams. I guess toughest of them all was "Investment Analysis & Portfolio Management”. The last one – “Derivatives Dealers Module” was also tough because I had lost the momentum in between as I participated in lot of Operations Simulation Games with no touch of Finance during that one and a half month period. Now, I am proud NCMP Level 3!!!

:(

It feels really frustrating sometimes. What is the point of being the so called sincere guy in class, the “nine" pointer guy when your parents are worried about how much time you spend on TV serials and movies in hostel!
