Given that the investors are investing for a period of 10 years or more, a combination of equity mutual funds and SSY will generate better returns.

  • ICC president rails at World Cup trophy snub

    ICC president AHM Mustafa Kamal has said that the game's governing body denied him of his right to give the trophy at the post-match presentation ceremony of the World Cup final on Sunday.   The trophy was handed over by ICC chairman N Srinivasan, despite the ICC's amendment of its rules in January 2015 to mandate that ICC president is supposed to give trophies at global competitions.   Kamal spoke to two Bangladeshi TV channels - Jamuna TV and 71 - following Sunday's final, accusing the ICC of not honouring his rights. After I go back home, I will let the whole world know what's happening in ICC. Kamal had come close to questioning the integrity of the umpires by saying that the ICC should investigate the matter and questioned whether some decisions were "deliberate or not." A day later, the ICC's chief executive, Dave Richardson, termed Kamal's criticism "unfortunate".

    Indian security forces must be commended for spotting a single pigeon flying suspiciously off Gujarat's coastline and not dismissing it as just a seagull in mufti or even a hopelessly off-course pied harrier. That alert guards managed to apprehend the flying object is a further feather in their collective cap. After all, this is not the first time that pigeons have been in the thick of clandestine activities. Though they have not been used seriously for surveillance, espionage and message-running since World War II, considering a similar questionable bird was nabbed in Punjab in 2010, investigators should not deem it a mere coincidence.
