The Slack group at Capital Mind Premium has been extremely active and if you haven’t been there (Premium subscribers only), pop us a note by replying to this email.
A brief summary of some of the interesting things discussed there in the last few days:

#general: Government admits Monsanto never had patent in India for Bt Cotton
Thirteen years after US multinational Monsanto launched Bt cotton seeds in the country, the Indian government has woken up to the fact that the first version of the genetically modified crop was not patented in India.
Here’s a snippet of what Deepak Shenoy had to say about the Indian Market scenario:
Deepak Shenoy: Buy and hold isn’t to be sneered at, however I believe in more active management.
Deepak Shenoy: I personally think our bull market may have a long way to go, but it has a long way to go down also.
Deepak Shenoy: The last three years have been extremely high on expectation. We have seen no really big dip in the marekt or economy for a long time. We have not seen a drougth for a while. We have no idea how to deal with the lack of inflation now (it’s been quite a long time).
Deepak Shenoy: We can dip substantially, and because of the problems in India (i.e. not attributed to global forces). That is what I think will come next.
