Me and the purpose behind this blog
I (Mandar Sawant) am an ordinary and a proud citizen of this great country who happened to be born during what I believe is the coming second golden period for our country, in this knowledge era. I am a product of the economic reforms of the 90’s and hence economy has always been my interest.
India is at the cusp of a massive jump in in the eyes of the world. Our economy has started it’s journey from a GDP of $ 2.6 trillion to $ 10 trillion, over the next 10 years. Along with GDP growth, we need to focus on per capita income to make it an all round growth. This needs infrastructure on a grand scale and hence my interest in the same.
Politics drives the future of our country and hence I have been interested in politics since the last 25 years. I like electoral politics and many of my posts are focussed on politics.
Personal investing has always intrigued and interested me, ever since I started working. I am maturing towards taking it seriously thanks to gurus like Robert Kiyosaki, whose books make me realize the importance of financial education (something that is missing in our education system). I won’t claim to be a pro but I want to be one. Also love to make people aware of investment options that can help them shape their futures. Also through engagement with like minded people would love to know of many innovative and new age investment options.
Sports has always been close to my heart especially Olympic sports. The corollary to a nation’s rise economically has been that sporting prowess follows. India is going through that adolescent stage where we have started emerging at the world stage in sports.
