Baba Ramdev shop, Ilford

Posted on April 5, 2013 at 2:33 PM Comments comments (14)
Regularly people look up Ramdev shop in Ilford on Google or some search engine, and they find their way to my blog.
 
Swami Ramdev is an enlightened personality, who has spread the wealth of yoga and good health to the world.  Together with his enlightened fellow Mahayogi, Acharya Balkrishan, he has found many herbs which are mentioned in the ancient works of Patanjali, and produced herbal remedies for many ailments (please believe me, I think the Sanjeevni is good for flu, even swine flu, from what I understand). 
 
They have devised ways of breathing and exercise that is bound to be beneficial to good health. 
 
When you hear the phrase 'chemicalisation of blood' (especially in the works of Parmahansa Yogananda), one can relate that to the subtle renewal of the body spirits through Yoga exercises and taking herbal remedies.
 
Baba Ramdev always brings a vibrant energy into the gatherings, and he is always followed by several thousand people at each event.  His mission is to be good and do good to all humanity.  He is so blessed, and I greatly admire him.
 
The shop in Ilford is at 855 High Road, Goodmayes, IG3, not far from Tesco.
It is open only on Saturdays between 10.30 and 4 pm.
Other days by appointment. 
Telephone numbers are : 0208 590 7900,
mobile : 07427221501; 07956376303; 07904372501.
 
Thanks to visits by the Queen to Ilford, and visits by many enlightened personalities from India, I believe Ilford is one of the happiest towns in the world.
 
Kind regards,
Duru-darshan.
 
 

How stimulating!

Posted on March 7, 2013 at 4:30 AM Comments comments (5)
Cup of herbal tea, a little square of chocolate....?  Perhaps a cup of decaf, smooth as milk?
 
Today is Thursday, when the Bank of England and the ECB will issue some statements regarding
the interest rates (which are already at an all-time low) or other measures to stimulate the economies
in Europe.
 
After the recent aggregate £375 Billion pumped into the U.K. economy, Sir Mervyn King has to ponder the question of whether another £50 Billion stimulus would be prudent and necessary.  Are the MPC allowed to open their minds to him? 
 
If I had the privilege of sitting on the MPC (which I would welcome at some point in the future, even gratis), I would suggest looking at it this way:  the recent stimulus of £375 Billion quantifies at around for a population of 66 million, at £5681 per head.  By contrat, the U.S. economy, with a population of 330 million, has had a recent stimulus post-2008 of 3T, quantifying at $9090 per head.  At current exchange rate for cable, that is £6060 per head in U.S., so the U.K. would be justified in doing another £379.60 per head, or....well, simple multiplicaion by 66 million....another £25 Billion or so to bring it to par with the U.S. (who will be probably stimulating further).
 
The British landscape shows a picture of shops which are not too busy, but you can't blame people for not spending what they haven't got.  The average social security payment is between £42 and £92 per week, just about enough to eat some simple food and drinks, so money for buying clothing or beds or curtains and such things is a bit scarce, compared to the bankers bonuses (being awarded from money which the banks are hoarding from the stimulus).  More of the stimulus needs to go to retail customers, either through increase in social net, or through direct lending at sensible rates, so the poor don't become victims of the sharks.
 
An additional stimulus of £25 to £50 Billion would be in order, I believe.  Not only that, to feed in an additional £5 per head may require stimulus of upto £275 Billion in due course, leaving scope for another £225 over the next year or 18 months.  That really would be sufficient to stimulate the economy in England, and make it the green and pleasant land it is, with a landscape of thriving businesses and factories, and restaurants (Chinese, Indian, Italian, Greek, Thai, Lebanese, et al), and proud house-owners and expensive cars being driven at a sedate pace. 
 
Such is how it should be, Sir Mervyn.
 
Kind regards,
Duru-darshan.
 
 
 

Finally, it seems the U.K. has started to pull out of recession.

Posted on October 25, 2012 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (2)
It seems the U.K. economy has just about started to come out of a long recession.  At least that is what the growth in the GDP of 1 percent for the quarter to September suggests.  The news came amidst some not so heartening news, of the closure of the Transit Vans division of Fords and a parts manufacturing plant in Dagenham, sore news for 4,000 plus employees of the giant automakers.
 
But the good news is that the U.K. is out of a recession, thanks in great part to the visitors to the London Olympics recently and the crowds who celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.  During the Olympics, some people were working 60 hours a week and earning good money, such a week is a good training for aspiring millionaires.
 
The American and European markets have see-sawed and hee-hawed recently, but I detect them now getting positive for the close of the week tomorrow.  There is just a feeling that everything will be okay, and improvements will happen.  By grace of God, that's how it should be.

Is the DOW going to reach for 15000?

Posted on September 22, 2012 at 4:51 PM Comments comments (1)
Without giving anyone false hope, I think it is very possible by the end of the year, regardless of who is President of U.S.A., whether it is Mr Obama or Mr Romney. 
 
As in most Presidential Election years, the markets have followed a similar pattern, being now up in this the third quarter.  Following this, the fourth quarter is very likely to be upwards also. 
 
Housing in the U.S. seems to have started to firm up at the bottom levels, and there has been a slight upwards gradient since early this year.  With the 30-year mortgages at a record low, this is very likely to help enable people buy their homes which now seem to be at an affordable level of price, job security and income sustainability permitting.  What a boon it would be if somehow house mortgages were tied in with employment, perhaps offered by the major employers? 
 
Mr Bernanke's announcement of the QE3, at $40 billion per month on an ongoing basis, is likely to help, especially as a good part of the allocation will be used currently for mortgage backed securities.  The creation of a national bank of mortgage provider would assist the cause greatly.
 
Regarding Europe, the bond purchasing measures announced by the ECB seem to need the blessing from Germany.  Once that is granted, things will start to motor onwards and upwards in Europe also.
 
My blog has received a lot of visitors from China recently.  The Chinese Paralympians and Olympians did
spectacularly well, and are to be congratulated on their fine achievements.  As to the China economy, a soft landing is the most likely accumulation of what has been announced so far. 
 
Just a couple of tweaks, perhaps India (who have recently announced favourable measures) and Russia reducing the repo or benchmark rate, would help the worldwide cause.  As they are such huge countries, they need to be in tune with the new policies being adopted in the  mature economies.  
 
I continue to believe in, and pray for, a worldwide economic Recovery.
 
Kind regards,
Duru-darshan.

The best proposition I've read of today

Posted on September 9, 2012 at 12:31 PM Comments comments (1)
The best idea I've read about today is that of the Business Secretary Vince Cable suggesting that both the Coalition and the Opposition (whose job is not to oppose but to test the propositions of the Government) should co-operate and create policies which will create growth and Recovery.  That is actually how it should be.  In the U.S., the Republicans' support for President Obama's proposals have seen their economy expanding and creating jobs and a positive GDP in a world beset with economic problems.  That is surely how all nations should be?  After all, political parties of all sides are there to serve the people who have elected them, and they have elected them to get a better deal, a better future.  A lot can be achieved with bi-partisan co-operation in most countries, if the elected leaders are open to ideas and are swift at implementing what seems a true course. 
 
The U.K. economy was dipping its toes into a double-dip, but figures recently suggest that scenario can be side-stepped, with the recent Cabinet reshuffle by the PM and return of confidence to the stock-market, which has been seeming to go upwards and onwards but has been holding back in a small range.
 
The infrastructure projects such as housing developments near race-courses or the third runway at Heathrow, and the planned railway link, could set the ball rolling with jobs and amenities which people need, and which will further open up Britain  to investments from overseas.
 
Britain is a great example of a multi-cutural nation where people live harmoniously, going to church or gurudwara or mosque or synagogue, observing their religious fesitvals Eid, Diwali, Hannukah and Christmas as joyous occassions which all people share in.  That is the nature of England.
 
Hopefully the politicians from both sides will also join in in such spirit, and set this nation once again on a path to Recovery and Prosperity.
 
Kind regards,
Duru-darshan.
 
 

Who should the PM tell to stop dithering?

Posted on September 3, 2012 at 4:48 PM Comments comments (0)
The PM has received an invitation from the Eurozone to get the British economy moving in the right direction, in the direction of growth.  It would provide inspiration and leadership for all.  The British are well-known for being innovative and leading from the front.
 
In tune already and before being asked, David Cameron suggested that Britain's business leaders get a move on and do the necessary to bring about such favourable changes, although he will stick to his guns and stick to the budget reduction exercise. 
 
No one is asking for U-turn or something.  What people are asking for is a slight change in the magnitude and severity of the budget cuts.  A common-sense question to ask is : why destory jobs in the civil service which pay about £1500 only to pay social security and housing benefits to those who thus become unemployed?  What is the point?  It creates a strain on the social security system and deprives the country of the good work done by those civil servants, they are always doing much, much more than twiddling their thumbs.
 
What's happened with the little private educational establishments, where are the pupils or students they should be teaching?  You know what, the parents have become unemployed, they can't afford the fees.  This is but one example of the knock-on effect.  When parents haven't got money for cigerettes, children can't have sweets or crisps from the local shop, where the shopkeeper is standing wondering what has happened to the country, no one seems to buy newspapers or cigerettes or sweets as they used to from his Dad and Uncle before him?  And they go to Tesco's to buy their wines and spirits.  What has gone wrong with the country? 
 
Could the central government not review the Uniform business rates, and give discounts to new or struggling businesses for a year or so, until the economy picks up again?  What about the landlords of the empty commercial properties, can't they take a lower rent until things improve?  What about the teachers sitting at home unemployed, can't they take a cut in pay and help make private education affordable?  Can't the banks start to lend the money that the Bank of England has pumped into the system?  If these and similar measures are put into effect, Britain will come out smiling, smelling of roses, just as the Olympians and Paralympians have done in London, and made Britain so proud.  Those people are an inspiration and a celebration of the human spirit.  And what a spirit!
 
Kind regards,
Duru-darshan.
 
 

Gurdas Knowledge Action

Posted on August 30, 2012 at 5:26 AM Comments comments (6)
Last few days people have put search phrases relating to Gurdas Sidhu and Knowledge to Action, and somehow found their way to my website, as I wrote about them in May at the time I attended the Business Show.
 
Since then, I have attended a couple of talks on the Stock Markets and the Forex Markets, held by Knowledge to Action and their new offshoot, Learn to Trade.  Greg Secker, who is said to be a very successful trader, owns this organisation.  His aim is to mentor successful traders.   Gurdas Sidhu is a professional trader, who became a successful trader before he graduated, running a mini Hedge Fund from his student room.
 
I have read through their literature and feel they can teach their method to people, to make money trading.  However, I am not sure if all students have the patience to actually study and then apply the rules they learn.  Nor of course is there any guarantee that if you trade by the rules then your trades will be successful. Market conditions constantly change.  Even the best looking chart formations do not necessarily follow through if investor interest is not there. 
 
Knowledge to Action offer a good course, where would be successful traders and future millionaires can purchase the software, do the immersion training on a Live Trading Floor in Chelsea Harbour for two days, then progress from there with a six month coaching programme, where they can sit at home and learn from a once a week Mentoring programme.  It is close to hand-held training to be a good trader.  It is a good course for people wishing to work in stockbroking or hedge funds or become self-employed traders.  Diligently studied and applied, the rules probably create more winners than losers. 
 
Kind regards,
Duru-darshan.
 
 

The DOW Index - where to now?

Posted on August 29, 2012 at 3:56 PM Comments comments (1)
For most of this month, the DOW Jones Industrial Average has hovered above 13,000. That's tells something to some people straight away.  It is consolidating upwards.  On days when the volume has been above a million contracts, the Dow has moved above 13,150.  On lower volumes, the price has been lower also.  That to me suggests new money is patiently waiting to go into the market if there is sign of strength. 
 
And strength there could be.  The average has moved higher, together with a positive sentiment, although at this stage that belief is not so widespread.  Confidence is returning, nevertheless, and as the economy registers this in growing confidence in the Housing market and the Transportation sectors, I can only conclude that things are improving for the U.S. economy and the DOW Jones will move up further also.
 
Onwards and upwards!
 
Caveat, this is my opinion, everyone invests at their own risk.

The Paralympics, a celebration of human spirit...

Posted on August 29, 2012 at 12:29 PM Comments comments (6)
If you asked me to name three Paralympians, I would not be able to name even one.  That I admit is a shortcoming on my part, which I hope to remedy forthwith.
 
The Flame has once again reached London, in readiness to light the cauldron tonight, to mark open the London Paralympics, the celebration of human spirit. 
 
Just seeing some of the clips on TV, I am truly amazed at the javelin thrower in a wheelchair, or the World Wheelchair Tennis Champion in India, who has yet to be given the highest sporting honour by the government there although of course he richly deserves it.  Again, on Facebook I saw a photograph of a man born without the lower limbs, but has worked himself to build a perfect upper part, the body of a bullworker champ.  I cannot help but marvel at the dignity of these personalities, who through sheer determination have triumphed with a competitive spirit of self-worth. 
 
These sportsmen and women are an inspiration to us all.
 
Kind regards,
Duru-darshan.
