I do not understand why some would call me an economic oracle. Although I correctly foretasted key economic events in the past 10 years, the truth is that any economic forecasting model can become useless with the change of just one variable. And if we learned anything from experience, the only constant in markets is change. The first rule of economic forecasting is to understand that it is a science of probability not a science of certainty.

Salute to Mumbai University! I had just turned 15, when I joined University of Mumbai, where I obtained my first two Degrees - B.Sc. (Hons) in Chemistry & Physics, and B.Sc. (Tech) in Chemical Engineering and Polymer Technology. I consider myself to be very fortunate and highly honored to study at the most prestigious institutes of University of Mumbai; Elphinstone College, Institute of Science, and UDCT. University of Mumbai was then known as Bombay University, since her inception in 1857 during the British rule, For me, it was really an awesome experience, full of grace and elegance, to walk through the great corridors of Bombay University buildings, or to enter those excellent libraries of Elphinstone College or Institute of Science (a.k.a. RIS) or UDCT. I have millions of fond and precious memories of my student years at University of Mumbai, involving many magical moments of my best teen years. My heartfelt salute to University of Mumbai, one of the best Universities in the world, and my favorite alma mater. Keep it up, University of Mumbai. We are proud of you - always!
