A Bucket List of Gifts

Umm I’m not a very “gifted” person…I’ve never been gifted with a lot of boxes wrapped with shiny paper and ribbon..i don’t recollect acting like Santa Claus to anyone either.


But I’ve come to realise how Life comes to giving you a subtle reminder through its gifts at some point. It does really strike you then about how very well ‘gifted’ you’ve been by Life.

There have been moments when I’ve been in utter despair, in dark hollows when People have given me a Reason to Smile. Their belief in me has given me the strength to go on!!

A special mention in a word of thanks, an extra 5 minute snooze, a feeling of being taken care of, beautiful soulful music, the soft colours of a sunset, the warmth of a loved one right beside you, unstinted support just when you need it, a good comment on a write-up of mine, a dance in the rain, a cheer at my work, a hug for just being there!! 

I would have been oblivious to these if I’d not have learnt to ‘Stop and Pause’. When I see how many such gifts I have, indeed I’ve had a rather attentive ‘Santa Claus’ in the form of Life.

Just slow down and watch from a distance, life expresses through subtle ways, these gifts are the best amongst all!!!

A Good Way to Spend Some Time

I’m a true blue student of Finance.  I’ve read a lot of articles about TIME and i was wondering how I could give my take differently.

So I decided to look at TIME as a COMPANY (=Well i am pursuing my Chartered Accountancy Course!! I spend the whole day doing precisely this 😛 :P)

Unknowingly TIME is always on our mind. We wake up in the morning to a reminder about TIME and spend the whole day Juggling It. We have to run against time to make it to our workplaces, college, school and back home to prepare for the same routine the next day.

I suppose if TIME was a company, it would be the Biggest in the World. Also it would be a MONOPOLY. (=I mean who else deals in TIME…its not like you walk on the road and see Time Turners or DeLoreans Back to the Future Style)

I’ve written this considering TIME as a Company that YOU could invest in.

TIME, the biggest enterprise worldwide, is one that shows no signs of abating. Its growth is charted in boardrooms world over, discussed and cribbed about. It has its presence in every life existing on the planet. (=Right that includes the sparrow that came to your window today and those sea creatures you saw on Animal Planet)

Its billions and trillions of shares called “Moments” attract one and all to itself. All of us are reasonably well endowed with resources so we’re always investing at some point or the other in various Moments of Time.

The sheer volume of the shares or Moments being transacted in daily would confound even the biggest exchanges in the World.


Returns!! Thats what every investor looks for right??  Time rewards those who invest in it early. Delays don’t really yield much. Many moments give us extremely good returns in the form of Good Memories.

Sometimes TIME gets back at us Taxing us during some Bad Moments.

The bottomline is proper investing does give a good return.

TIME will never run out of customers. TIME has this universal application in every person’s life. What i mean is, if adequate Time is given, it solves problems.

Time trades in an extremely volatile market, reaping rich rewards for early birds.

BUT a word of caution!! Time is very cunning. Dealing with this company you will encounter extreme risk and volatility.

And there!! Would you look at the TIME ;). Time has made fools of us again!!
