Investment is something you make in an expectation of a return in the future. We earn money through a lot of hard work. It might take days, months or even years to make a stable income. And then as we do it, we want to make an investment in such a way that it rewards with profits in the times of crisis. But this was the monetary part. Have you ever thought that your mind too, needs food in the times of loneliness and difficulties. What are your investment plans for that?
Buying books from the famous Indian bookstore Crossword was a ritual in those days. It all started because my parents always felt that reading was an essential part of growing up. It widens our horizons and opens up our perspective. They tried inculcating this wonderful and productive practice in me and I happily obeyed. Also, after they discovered how addicted I got to reading, they started bribing me with books. We as kids don't like to go to certain functions or events with our families. But I used to go. Why? Because after that I'd get a book. 😀
