Finance is all around us! It is in the way you split your New Year party’s dinner and drinks bills, to the way your father is glued to business channels early morning and even in the way you decide to buy your smart phones these days (no-cost EMI, anyone?).

Despite our world being so finance-dominated, we don’t end up taking interest in it because its either too “boring” or “complex”. But when explained with practical real-life experiences, even the toughest subjects can be made easy to understand.

Have you wondered:

  • What can I do with my pocket money? Will investing be a right option for me?
  • Is it too early for me to start investing?
  • The OnePlus 7 will be launching soon. Can I invest my savings to buy it?
  • Is digital wallet a better mode of payment than the UPI?
  • What is this Sensex and Nifty that dad discusses with his friends daily?
  • How does my (okay, my dad’s) credit card actually work?
  • Should I take a student loan for my higher studies?
