It is the 10th day of the lockdown and yes, all of us have survived it so far. Hopefully, together we will sail through the rest of the days as well. For the time being, we bring you another exciting fable.


The Tortoise & The Ducks 

As we all know that a Tortoise carries a shell on his back. No matter how hard he tries, he cannot get rid of this weight. 

After watching the birds fly, the rabbits and the squirrels run; he felt very sad and disconnected.

The tortoise and the ducks:

He was eager to see everything there was to be seen. But his short legs could hardly drag him.

One day, he met a pair of ducks and told them his troubles. “We can help you to see the world,” said the Ducks. “Just bite this stick. But remember to keep quiet or you will be sorry”.

The Tortoise bit the stick firmly, the Ducks took hold of it one at each end and they took off. 

Just then a Crow flew by and said: “this must surely be the King of Tortoises!” 

The Tortoise replied, “ Why certai—-”. But as he opened his mouth, he fell to the ground. Where he was smashed to pieces on a rock. 

Foolish curiosity and vanity often lead to misfortune. 

Keeping in mind the fate of the Tortoise. We should be aware of our foolish curiosities. 

Equity trading is highly risky in these times. Market volatility (the fluctuation measure/ market risk) is too high.

Do not do intraday trading by listening to your so-called expert friends who may have earned money due to the market volatility but It is highly risky. 

In an attempt to make a quick buck, your foolish curiosity may lead to great misfortune.
