Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor. I frequently update this blog to cover various topics on personal finance such as investment strategies, financial products that you should buy and ones that you really should stay away from, financial calculators, emerging themes such as early retirement and financial independence, and much more.

Yippee! I’ve been short listed for the National Geographic Mission Udaan contest. For those unaware, Mission Udaan gives you the opportunity to be strapped tight in an Indian Air Force fighter plane – something that I have always dreamed about. If I had a wish to make, I would go back in time and become a fighter pilot.

The selection is on the 13th of October. I hope the bus back from Mantralaya (to where I am headed on the 11th and 12th) arrives in Bangalore on time.

I will definitely write about my Mantralaya Trip. It’s the first time that I am visiting the place.

Simple. I saw the ad on the Nat Geo channel. Sent an SMS with the requested details and then was shortlisted.
