Those were the days when most of the ads were related to cricket. And whenever India bats, Kapil Dev, the great all-rounder, was expected every time to just walk-in and hit sixers for the team. Following the rules of time, Natraj pencils came up with an ad - "Yeh laga sixer".

The eight richest men in the world have a combined net worth of more than $426 billion, according to Forbes data.

The report shows “that the gap between rich and poor is far greater than had previously been estimated and details how big business and the super-rich are fueling the inequality crisis by dodging taxes, driving down wages and using their power to influence politics,” Oxfam said in a statement.

Lambasingi village - Snowfall in Andhra Pradesh
If you were told that there is a place in Andhra Pradesh where sometimes it Snows, would you believe it? That’s right. Snowfall. In Andhra Pradesh!

Another name for this Lambasingi village, famous as Andhra Kashmir, is Korra Bayalu. As already established, the village experiences below 0°C temperature and chilly winds in winter, with a spell of snow sometimes.

In the east of Visakhapatnam, just 100km away is this beautiful hamlet. The hills, the dense forests, the valleys, and the plantations contribute in making Lambasingi a place with prolific natural beauty.

Investor shift from active to passive funds accelerating
Seven top asset managers this week reported a total of $50 billion in third-quarter net redemptions, most of it from active funds.
The tally is further evidence that investors, frustrated with high fees and mediocre performance of actively managed funds, are increasingly casting them off for low-cost passive investments. In the 12 months ended Sept. 30, active funds had redemptions of $295 billion while passive took in $454 billion, according to data from Morningstar Inc.
