Had a detailed chat with Siva while he was returning back from his Uncle-in-Law's home. His marriage has been fixed for Nov 23. It's a pity I wont be able to attend it due to some committed tasks with clients. I promised myself to attend the reception where ever he hosts after they return from Desh.
My other good friend AJ is tying the knot as well in late Dec. Suddenly as in Lok Sabha, the have's are prevailing over we, have not's !!
Also had an hour long conversation with Atul, he has joined a new job and was pretty excited about it. I wish him good luck !
It was Kartik's b'day today. He is still put up at Calif interviewing with a few Tech Firms. As always, I believe something big is around the corner ! Lage Raho Kartik Bhai.
Got hold of the Jeremy Siegel book "Stocks for the Long Run" from the Keene library, though interesting and still too early to comment - It's definitely not in the league of "Intelligent Investor" by Benjamin Graham ! No wonder the bloke is considered by Warren Buffett as his guru !
Neverthless, I thought Jeremy's book had an impressive foreword laced with witty yet thought provoking facts, yet nothing compared to the one which my own guru Dr Ken Case had written in the foreword of his book that was supposedly exclaimed by his wife Mrs Lucy after reading the first copy - Ken, if you know so much about Finance, why arent we rich " ?
