#ETMONEY has been leading the charge in providing the most seamless MF investing experience. And now after 4 years & 11 million transactions, we wanted to look at how #Indians are investing and what changes have happened in these 4 years. Time for India Investment Report #2020
First up - The tale of States. While Maharashtra sits pretty on top in the list of top contributions by value, Uttar Pradesh, a relatively less obvious state takes second spot. We're proud to have made investing accessible to Indians in every nook & corner of this vast country🙂
In the second part of this tale of states, we analyzed Equity Allocation from each state. And this time it was the smaller states that came on top. That’s because as awareness about #MutualFunds grow, people from states like J&K are latching onto equities🥳

At the age of 92, Sri U. Ve. T. Srinivasachariar swamy diligently sits in front of the computer every day, typing in both #Sanskrit & #Tamil for his next book. He is an expert in #agamas (ancient temple rituals & practices)

He doesn’t stop with this. He even plans the design & layout of the book. He learnt Adobe PageMaker at the age of 86 on his own & has been working on it ever since. “I studied the Vedas to become a priest. Though I became one, I never abandoned the habit of reading the old
Sanskrit scripts. Based on my research, I wrote the first prose book on the day-to-day temple ritual called Sri Padmatantra Prayogam. I even started my own press Sri Raghavasimham Press in the 80s. Through the years, I have been writing and printing my own books,”

The port has expanded, Marina beach has widened, Moore Market is gone and Buckingham canal is....... 🤦

Yes. you read it right. It was called Corona and it is from 1960s!

In the Adyar Estuary, Broken Bridge was not broken; Buckingham canal is looking healthy and the old villages were less denser

Command area of Velachery lake was a fertile farmland, Pallikaranai had lots of water even during summer but now it has a lot of issues including garbage dump. The Airport runway didnt cut the Adyar river

Chennai is the smallest district with 178 SqKm
Population wise first 46,46,732

Some facts:
Chennai population density per SqKm is 26,076 people per Sq Km.This is out of proportion compared to other districts avg of 538.Lowest is Erode 276

The Chennai population density is more than all the district population per sq km (19356) Combined
Chennai Sq KM is 178.2 and the largest district is Erode 8161.91 Sq KM.

Population density is most critical factor why Chennai is out growing in Covid +ve cases when compared to rest of TN.

Time to develop other cities like Chennai so there is equal spread of population.

"#Chennai Is @rajinikanth"

During my school days, films for me meant just one Man its #Rajinikanth
I was allowed to watch just his films
I do have memories of going for first-day first-shows It is such a lovely dream to be part of an industry where he's present Image
While I used to make time to watch #Rajini sir films first back then, today I am part of the privileged few from the industry who gets to watch it before the release.Yet, I feel the same kind of excitement and fan frenzy when I see him and I brag about this with my friends
I think this is because
'#Chennai is #Rajinikanth' in many ways
People 'Across the World', be it #America, #Japan or #Europe, know him and they know Chennai because he resides there
I meet people who may hardly know about India but know "#SuperStarRajinikanth"

If you live in #Chennai, and need a form of transport that safe and reliable, then please call my old driver, Ezhumalai Uncle. My father helped him buy an auto rickshaw right before the lockdown. He sanitises the auto with dettol after every customer. His number is +9941333717.
Uncle's not with an auto stand so he parks the auto at our house. Uber/ola has low volume during this time and he barely makes anything on most days. Wrt payment, you can give him what you see on an app. He's also happy to set up something regular like dropping/picking people up.
You can also hire him for half-day/full day trips if you want to use his auto for multiple trips. He's trustworthy particularly if you're a woman - Ezhumalai uncle drove me around from when I was 8 and is very safe to send your kids with.

This is the time for India to increase the ratio of #Pool tests.

The number of #COVID19 cases in #India has seen a constant rise over the past two weeks. This has been concerning considering that most cities are gradually coming out...
...of the lockdown. Domestic flights have resumed operations and soon, we may see other relaxations coming into effect. Offices and factories are opening up across states and this may certainly lead to a new wave of cases being identified.
