Moving to Mumbai: Will be Back After a Small Hiatus

Dear Readers,

Wish you all a very happy new year and hope all of us continue to reap rich dividends from investing in 2013. New year has started with a new phase in my life as I have moved to Mumbai to take up a new job. I am excited about moving to this immensely vibrant financial capital of India. However, as I am uprooting from my home town and rerooting in Mumbai, there are number of new fronts that have opened up which I am trying to tackle. This leaves me with very little time to ponder over different ideas and do justice to whatever I write on this blog. So, I have decided to take a small break in blogging till I settle down in mumbai on professional as well as personal front.

However, I am determined to be back to blogging for sure, hopefully in a month.

Happy investing to you all at this exciting time.

    1. Hi Ayush,

      Sorry for inordinate delay in replying but thanks for your wishes. Almost settled down in Mumbai and itching to get back to value investing and writing blogs and more importantly remaining connected with our wonderful set of friends on value pickers. but still strugling to find time to do that, but as they say, when there is a will, there is a way! so am sure, will find a way. Regards, Dhwanil

  5. Congrats on the move Dhwanil. Wish you all the best for yr new job! Job change if also accompanied by location chg are so exciting. I've had a few of those. Feels great to get rid of the accumulated mold/crust and start afresh with a clean slate. Much like spring-cleaning PF.

    I've been a long-time reader of yr blog and followed you on VP. But commenting here first time. 15th Tuesday evening, Safir Anand, Saurabh and few other investors from twitter/VP are meeting up (tentatively near Santacruz/Kalina). We'd be pleased if you can join us and share yr insights. Couldn't find yr email ID anywhere so inviting here.

    What a great move for 2013!!

    I'm sure this will work out fine as Mumbai is still the financial capital of India.

    All the best.

    1. Hi Vikas,

      Thanks for you wishes and sorry for very late revert. I was just going through your blog, and it seems you had a wondeful time in last couple of months. I too aspire to achieve financial independence in few years to live life king size and though there are number of people who thinks its a pipedream, I can always draw strength from people like you who have made it to that stage. Hope to connect up with you soon.

    1. Hi Anon,

      Grappled with number of fronts and finally seems to have put things in order and settled down. I am doing alright and wanting to be back in the game soon.

    1. Hi anon,

      Frankly, I have not been connected with the market in last 3-4 months and hence am not in a position to answer your question. But generally I understand that fertlizer companies are facing temporary trouble and their invenotry has piled up. Caprolacctum market is pretty slow so beleiev in short term there are headwinds. But the key question, to be asked is, isn't such passimism reflected already in prices? Has Mr. Market taken this pessimism to extreme? are we getting something at a price, where value far exceeds it? We need to reevaluate the business case and valuation to find answer to these questions. Hope it helps.
