Before Ending this article, I want to share Some Quotes said by Mr. Rakesh Jhunjhunwala,

Markets are like Women-always commanding, mysterious, unpredictable and volatile.

Prepare for Losses. Lossess are part and parcel of stock market investor life.

When opportunities come, they can come through technology, marketing, brands, value protections, capital, etc. You need to be able to spot those.

The Prettiest part of the Stock is that it has to be cheap-the entry point.

Markets may in the short-term correct. But in a Bull Market the correction is always sharp, swift and short-lived.

If I have fever, I take Crocin but my wife and mother calls doctor. Similarly, investing is not something which a doctor or a lawyer can really understand. Take professional advice, plan.
