Tell me about yourself?
Little Bit Background history but I will not keep it too long
My name is Sanjay Gupta having 46+ years of age, I was born in Jhansi, India and moved to Meerut, India, when I was some 8-9 years of age. So my childhood was spent in Meerut though my early kids’ years spent in Jhansi and grown-up missing Jhansi. I was ordinary person living ordinary life, I consider my self king of finance and expert in shares and mutual fund investing. You ask WHY? In the year 1995, I invested Rs. 50,000 in some shares.
In the year 2010, the value of these shares was above 12 lakhs. I have ICICI Bank shares purchased at Rs. 23 with a face value of Rs. 10, without the split. I have purchased UTI Bank shares (some 600 of them) at Rs. 69 (UTI Bank is now called AXIS Bank). It was also at the face value of Rs. 10 without split. And we enjoy great dividends for all these years. So what I am trying to tell you? Investing is not rocket science. Anyone can learn it. But you need to have patience to hold on your shares. I am having more then 25 years of investing experience, that is a fun part of my life.
But my life was filled with problems as well. Problem got started from 2004, and was on peak in the year 2008. When I was blamed for everything that went wrong, so ultimately from 2008 to 2012.

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
My name is Sanjay Gupta having 41+ years of age, I was born in Jhansi (U.P) and moved to Meerut (U.P) when I was some 8-9 years of age, so my childhood spend in Meerut though my early kids' years was spend in Jhansi and grown-up missing Jhansi anyway I was living with two siblings in Meerut but both died, one my elder brother was polio affected;
his life was limited to wheel chair so he was not able to go to places where I was, but his confidence was extremely high and was ready to challenge the impossible but he was not able to defeat his death though he was very successful in running Kirana store (small department store) beside our house in Meerut, I remember, he use to say "Sanju (my pet name), do what you love doing, and don't do anything to please family, which you don't love doing" he want to say something more to me. I look up to the sky and talk to him. What I wouldn't give to hear him talk back.
I miss his voice, I miss his laughter, I miss everything about him, really, he was a good motivator for me, he was always there in my bad day but he is not alive to see my good days and my opulent life though he is blessing me from haven and visualizing my success from there.my second sibling was my younger sister she was some five years younger to me, she was full of life and want to live every moment of life, I remembered that when she heard the news of her chronic renal failure and that she can't survive more than six month, she continually started crying and told me that.
"Bhagya, may Marna nashi chapati, much bacha lo" I felt so helpless that I can't do anything to save her life, she was found of new cloths and love shopping, that time I can't fulfill her wishes, hope she is alive today; I can shop for lacks for her but truth is she is not with me, we were not poor but driven by poverty thoughts.
