Now that everyone is cutting and pasting stuff from mails...I thought I should also give it a go. So here is something I found rather interesting...
Rising Stock Markets Philosophy
Once upon a time in a village a man appeared who announced to the villagers that he would buy all size of monkeys for Rs. 10. The villagers were really thrilled and they went into the forest to catch monkeys. The man bought thousands at 10 and as supply started to diminish and villagers started to stop their effort of doing anything else then he announced that now he would buy at 20 rupees.
This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms.
The offer rate increased to 25 and the supply of monkeys became so that it was an effort to even see a monkey let alone catch it.
The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at 50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business he said his assistant would now buy on behalf of him.
In the absence of the man, the clever assistant told the villagers "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at 35 and when the man comes back you can sell it to him for 50."
The villagers queued up with all their saving to buy the monkeys.
Phir na woh aadmi mila na us ka assistant........... Sirf bandar hee bandar........
