Dalgona Coffee, Anyone?

Dalgona coffee videos have been making rounds for quite some time now. Everyone coming up with their own version of this two layered coffee. One "Real Man" laughed at all  these sissies making coffee and came up with a rudimentary layering of whisky on water. Well here's something even better for the "Lazy MAN" (or for that matter Lazy Lady - I don't believe in gender bias). Just carefully pour yourself a shot glass full of Sheridan.

Just for your info: Sheridan is a just another Irish Coffee "taste-a-like". But it is uniquely packaged as a separate dark coffee-Irish whisky mixture and a white cream based liqueur in a single bottle with two compartments with two separate openings. It is produced by Thomas Sheridan and Sons Distillery w

A little bit of help for loans

You can see an EMI calculator on every loan site. It is pretty helpful when you want to see how much you will be paying up every month. But have you come across any ready reckoner about 

  1. how much your EMI will be
  2. how much of the principal amount you would have paid by the end of the first year
  3. how will your EMI term change if you prepay a small amount
No right? There isn't a single place where you can get this kind of information. So how bout we make this kind of a reckoner. All you need is Microsoft Excel. Any spreadsheet will do,  but then you will have to write a lot of formulas by yourself. MS Excel has a ready template for this.

Open Excel and go to New. In the search box for online templates, type "Loan Amortization Schedule" (with the double quotes). Select and click create.


Just key in the details:
  1. Loan amount
  2. Annual interest rate
  3. Loan term in years
  4. Number of EMI's per year (obviously 12)
  5. Start date of loan
  6. Optional extra payments if you are going to pay an additional amount every month
You should get  nifty loan summary stating your EMI, total interest paid etc. and a detailed table with every payment date and the EMI, the principal and the interest component of the installment, opening and closing balance of the loan.

Nice trick right??

The New Age Great Compression

Just putting down a few thoughts on the after-effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Well sure the pandemic is far from over and experts are claiming that there might be a resurgence of infections once the summer gets over in the Northern Hemisphere, but I just wanted to take look at what would be the impact of this pandemic on the global economy. Is it going to be a recession. Well, yes in a way there will be a recession. Due to all the various lockdowns across the world, most businesses are forced to shut shop. Other than basic necessities, everything else is either not available or not in demand. So all in all demand is low and supply even lower - economic downturn. But what do you think will happen once the the pandemic starts to lose its grip on the human race. Suddenly people will be free to leave their homes. They will want to go back to their jobs. Business owners will be free to open up. All that pent up demand will start to show, and they will gladly take the people who want

Facebook + Reliance Jio = ?

Facebook will be investing $5.7 bn (approx INR 43K crore) in Reliance Jio in a bid to scale up it's presence in India. Reliance on the other hand will be able to reduce its net debt. Image Courtesy: Google Image Search So besides this, what could be the impact of this Facebook-Jio team Jio Money-Whatsapp Pay combination: Facebook and Jio can leverage each other's user bases which can give both these under utilised payment platforms a push to be more formidable players in the payment space. May be so much that they could give the Paytms and Google Pays of the world a run for their money. Jio Mart on WhatsApp: Reliance has also announced its online ecommerce platform - JioMart. WhatsApp can be utilised well as a means of receiving orders as well as giving updates. With payment possibilities on WhatsApp itself, the entire lifecyle of buying can be covered in one app. With Reliance in the background sourcing goods in manners similar to what it used for Reliance Digita
