Doing is Living

During my travels to the UK in the summer of 2022 I had an amusing experience. On one of the evenings after coming back to my hotel I found that the room hasn't been done up and I found it in the same condition as I had left it in the morning. I had earlier experienced this on another occasion triggered entirely on account of fault on my part - I forgot to leave instructions to clean the room in the morning. Once bitten is always twice shy and hence since then I always remember to leave instructions to clean the room which happened this time in London as well. After a long day you are looking forward to unwind in a done-up room and you expect that to happen in any professionally managed chain. Curious to find out why they slipped I reached out to the hotel's General Manager who besides being apologetic was kind enough to promise an investigation into this episode. From the CC TV feeds the hotel found out that the housekeeping staff reversed the instructions from “Make up my room” to “Do Not Disturb”. Why would they do so especially when they are trained to do as requested by the guest? The simple reason was that the hotel was understaffed and to ensure that the show must go on the hotel had contracted the housekeeping staff from an external housekeeping agency which too was understaffed. This revelation spilled the beans of the pervasive problem in the UK’s economy across the board – shortage of staff. You could see this across hotels, restaurants, cafes and even at the Heathrow airport where airline managements were declining to give commitment to get your baggage loaded to the same flight!!

Assessment and Mitigation of Risk in Private Wealth Management

Risk Management A "possible hindrance to the intended result" is how risk can be defined. Risk management is not just a process of identification and assessment; it also involves analysis, strategy, and mitigation. The primary risk management methods are predominantly avoidance, retention, sharing, transferring, and loss prevention and reduction. These may apply to all facets of an individual's, family's, and corporate life and can pay off in the long run.

Cryptocurrency - Future Investment Market in India or Not?

Just a dozen years ago, the Crypto community was virtually unknown to the rest of the world. The number of these people has shrunk substantially, but it's still there. As far back as when its skepticism was called into question, speculation arose about its pseudonymous creator, and a possible ban was spotted, India has come a long way toward disclosing it in IT returns in April of 2022.
