  • NSEL: Income Tax officials ask for investor details from brokers, suspicious some of them are fictitious. (Business Standard)
  • Brazil raises rates to 9.5% to tame inflation (Reuters)
  • Infosys: Waiting for results (LiveMint)
  • Mutual Funds extend exit loads for as long as 9 months on  short term bond schemes (Business Standard)
  • Bharti-Walmart is finito, Walmart will buy Bharti’s stake (LiveMint)
  • In China, a housing complex “accidentally” in the middle of an 8 lane highway (Gizmodo)
  • I know this is far fetched but I was wondering if it would it be possible to meet you? I stay in Gurgaon and am the Director of Smile Train India, a global charity focused on cleft surgeries. ref: ‘Smile Pinki’ the oscar winning documentary…..I know you are on a holiday but if you could spare some time to discuss on fund raising, we will be very greatful.
