Here is something interesting ,on the NRI condition, I came across here.I thing its worth a read.
RAM KRISHNASWAMY writes from Sydney, Australia: Two years ago, I attended a reception for a Union Minister who had come to Sydney to make a big speech asking all NRIs to invest big in India and to attend the annual NRI yatra that was to be held at Bombay.
The Minister was expecting NRIs to queue up and pledge millions if not billions as was done by some Indians in Hong Kong and South Africa. He was most disappointed with the NRIs in Australia.
When question time came, the audience were suggesting to the Minister that for them to come to India to attend the meeting, they needed reduced fares in Air-India as well as freeaccommodation in Bombay! Read more of this post

If you have a ladder of fixed income instruments or are looking to take on debt,it helps to be able to have a feel for the interest rate cycle.I came across come interesting inputs to help in this effort in yesterday’s newspaper.
The chief takeaways of this article are:
1.By watching the long-term investments in infrastructure,maybe 10-15 years into the future,we can call the GDP growth rate.At present it is likely to be 5-7 %.
2.The current RBI governor has commented that the potential growth output frontier has shrunk to about 7.5%.
3.During the growth phase of the business cycle,when the growth reaches,85% of the capacity,which is about 6.5% growth,RBI will likely apply the brakes.
4..The business cycle time period has reduced from a previous 7-8 years to 1.5-2 years.

This is a BBC documentary I watched on Saturday on the internet.It was aired in India a few days ago. My friend Avishek Jha saw caught it on TV and was pretty insistent that I watch it.
This BBC documentary seems to have been made a couple of years ago and has probably been aired in the UK ,before being broadcast in India.So my apologies to my UK readers for re posting old stuff.
This documentary focuses more on Warren Buffett, the person,the manager,the entrepreneur and the philanthropist rather than just the investor .I think the movie is worth watching and at least I came out learning a couple of new things about the man.Here are the links to the documentary.Happy Watching!
