Mad Money Journey - The Book

Though I was extremely fond of Mathematics, I never really understood finance or better say never tried to understand the subject. I always found finance as a complex subject and believed that it’s not my cup of tea. But the fact is whether you like it or not, you got to understand this complex subject and apply proper strategies to develop your finance to live your today while securing your future.

If you face the same complexities that I have with the subject of Finance then I would like to introduce you to the book called “Mad Money Journey – A Financial Adventure” by Mehrab Irani. The book guides you and helps you understand the importance of managing your finances properly. It takes you to a journey to all corners of the world to experience and learn financial management through the experience shared by different people from different professions and nationality.

So, what’s the book all about?

Now if you have read Mehrab Irani’s 1st book – 10 Commandments of Financial Freedom – then you will find that “Mad Money Journey” is actually an extension teaching these 10 commandments of Financial Freedom from life experiences. The book is a fiction yet the author has successfully drafted all the characters and their experiences brilliantly to make it look real. You might find similar people sharing same stories if you too go on such a Mad Money Journey to the farthest corners of the world.

Mad Money Journey is the story of Dr. John Pinto who in spite of being a successful and renowned doctor has experienced extreme financial set back out of wrong decisions. The book enfolds his journey around the world to understand the 10 commandments that can lead one to financial freedom following an advice from his long lost school buddy, Vijay Desai.

My review about the book

I have read the books like A Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and these books left a huge impact on my perspective about life. After reading these books, I became more eager to read fiction novels that comprises of an adventurous journey delivering important life lessons along the way. Mad Money Journey justifies that criteria for me.

I don’t believe in comparisons and wouldn’t compare the works of different authors. Mad Money Journey is a different book and takes you to a different journey while teaching you different lessons on how you can too achieve financial nirvana. Each lesson is described from the experience of various people from different destinations and the hardships they go through day after day without giving up. It guides you through the basics of financial planning with a letter for each destination.

Who should read this book?

Anyone who loves reading adventure theme novels that involves traveling, new experiences, alongside learning life lessons as you read then this book is for you. Don’t read it if you are looking for fantasy based stories with imaginary creatures or any cliché romantic stories as you may find this book utterly boring.

If you liked the books like The Alchemist and A Monk Who Sold His Ferrari then you will enjoy reading Mad Money Journey too.

Few Quotes from the book

The only thing in abundance in this world is money

Vijay Mehra

In this world, everything has rules. Schools, offices, hospitals, courts and governments, all have rules, so why won’t money, the most important thing in this world, also be governed by rules?

Vijay Mehra

And, finally, what is money? It is nothing but paper currency, and if you don’t know how to bear the current of it, then either it will burn you or it will burn itself.

Children’s Day as I remember used to be a lot of fun during school days given the fact that there were no classes on this day. Those memories of every Children’s Day celebrated at School have faded a bit yet I remember getting chocolates from teachers and most of all there used to be singing and dancing events for the entertainment part.

All those memories came back to me yesterday while attending the event organized by Women Planet and Srotoswini Trust Vadodara where 100 kids participated in a painting exhibition at the Kamatibaugh Amphitheatre in Vadodara on the eve of 14th November 2014, i.e. Children’s Day.

The experience was completely blissful to see these kids unaware of what’s going on exactly, unaware of what they are doing, unaware of what future beholds were eagerly participating in painting the canvas set up in a semicircle with ample space for all of them. They also had a Canvas space for Visitors where even I gave a shot at my painting skills. I realized later on that Painting isn’t my cup of tea but then it wasn’t a competition or display of your skills instead it was about displaying your vision and creativity. Although I envied how these small kids were more creative than me, it was yet more inspiring and motivating for me to do what I am best at – i.e. Writing.

So I decided to give a shout out about such a noble cause that these people are doing for these kids.

What’s special about these 100 Kids?

I hate to call them street kids as it will be stereotyping which I am strictly against but then to make my readers aware of them I have to use the term anyhow. These kids belong to poor families who can’t afford sending their children to school and end up giving away their kids into Child Labor. These kids are picked by the volunteers and team members of Srotoswini Trust which indulges in a program called Pathshala to educate these street children.

For me, there can’t be a bigger cause than educating a child. As I don’t believe in Gods, I won’t say Children are closer to Gods. Instead I believe that Children are the most innocent and uncluttered beings. They are in the primary stage of life where they can be nurtured or molded into a specific character with respect to the kind of education they receive.

Education doesn’t mean things what you learn only from schools but it also defines anything that you learn in life with various different experiences. I was fortunate enough to get the much needed primary education because of which I can write today and convey my thoughts to the readers of my blog. At the same time there are lots and lots of kids who are not fortunate enough to get the much needed basic education which can help them become a better person in life by guiding them to make better choices in life.

Hence, a proper education is the birth right of every child. It’s not a favor or aid that we give to these kids but it’s more about giving them a chance, an opportunity that all of us who can read, write and understand today got. Everyone deserves an opportunity. It was my honor actually to be a part of this noble cause where I observed these innocent minds who are willing to make their Udaan!

You can also be a part of their noble cause or please give a shout out about them on your social media profiles. You can find their amazing work here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Srotoshwini-TrustVadodara/1476117399293569

The one thing an Indian women is taunted most of her time after she gets married is to get pregnant fast. Almost everyone around you to get a swollen belly just few days after marriage. Being happily married for 3 years, I am a 30 year old women who enjoy being healthy, manage my work and family. But, lately I have been put into a scrutiny eyes of every older ladies around me. If I put on weight they assume I am pregnant but when I shed weight it becomes a matter of criticism.

“She doesn’t focus on getting a child. All she wants is good figure and a pair of jeans”

This was one of the worst comments I have ever heard for me. Yes I like to look good, be in shape, get that bikini figure but this doesn’t kill my maternal instincts. Why my success, independent behavior is judged by me being a women who don’t want to have kids. Frankly, I love kids and feel the joy being around them. I love cute simple, senseless talks, drools, even nasty way of eating food.

The criticism did take a toll on me. No matter how much I tried to avoid the talks, silently it entered my head and put a question on my soul – Are they telling the truth? Don’t you want to have kid? Your Biological is ticking, don’t you want to get a kid? Trust me, finding yourself in such situation is not easy, but the best way is to find the way out sooner as this can lead you to the pit of depression.

So, with the help and guidance of my friends (mostly male) and my husband, I found out that I am nowhere wrong to think about my career and my life instead of a baby. Yes having a child will be blessing for me but only when I am ready. If you are facing same problems like me and wish to get out of these depressing times, try what I do and may you will be just happy like me.

An Idle Mind is The Devil’s Workshop – Better Get Back to Work:

The most important thing to get out of these depressing thoughts is to get yourself into a work which you enjoy. For me its writing on topics I want to share with my readers. The mantra is to get yourself busy in the work so that you don’t get time to think about any negative comments. Also, the busier you are, the less you interact with nonsense people.

Connect with Your Spouse:

Most of people who suffers from depression tries to cut all ties with people around them. If you are doing that stop immediately. If you are facing any kind unwanted pressure of getting pregnant, discuss with your partner. You might be surprise to find that your spouse is not ready at all. Having a child is a big responsibility which both husband and wife needs to bear. First be ready in every way and then get a child in your life.

Be Healthy, Be Wise:

If you are scared that your biological clock is ticking and you don’t know what to do, then stop fretting and get appointment of gynecologist. You need to make sure that your body is healthy to bear the child. Also, keeping yourself fit means you get more time to bear a healthy child. You can have a bikini body and still have full chances to conceive a healthy baby.

These are just few simple tips I practiced when I was having a feeling of being not up to the mark for everyone. Being a mother is the biggest task of any women’s life. You need to be prepare in every way as you will be the responsible to nurture a soul. For me, it’s important to be happy before making anyone happy in my life.
