Rewind - April 2021

 It has been a hell of a month! There were a lot of personal milestones but as far as writing is concerned I wrote the following: Date Published 04/01/2021 तेरे ख़ास होने का एहसास कुछ यूँ हुआ जिस दिन से तुने हाल नहीं पूछा  मैं बेहाल सी बैठी हूँ 04/03/2021 मुझे आज भी याद है तेरा हलके से मुस्कुराना और सुस्त दोपहर में मेरे काँधे पे गिर जाना 04/07/2011 मशहूर फ़िल्मी गाने जैसा इश्क़ अपना शहर में हर किसी की ज़ुबान पे है 04/08/2021 कमबख़्त कैसा अँधा प्यार है जिसने दिल तोड़ा दिल उसी के गले लग के रोने को बेकरार है

Money Lessons I Wish I Knew at 17

  I have wanted to write this for a long time. Today, I finally have the courage and hopefully articulation to say it in the most meaningful manner. I started working at 17. I have made successful investment decisions, both in the property and share market, in my early 20s. I started my business and practice in the mid-20s and was successful at it, too. Then after my marriage circumstances changed. I had to leave my practice and business behind when I moved to the US. I was on a dependent visa and was not allowed to work there. It was then I started blogging. For those who have seen my blogging journey, I was fairly successful there too. The only mistake I did post marriage was to give control of my finances to my partner. I made money and he took care of it. Please note, I am not blaming him. I somehow lost confidence that I could do it. It came from living in isolation, working from home and losing touch with the real world. In the 1990s, I saw #Longines advertisement in a magazine.
