Travails Of Teenagers During Lock Down

Teenagers are often found to be fond of being independent, able to move freely anywhere without much restriction, and love freedom. But the lockdown proved to be a very challenging task for every teenager out there. The freedom once they had, WAS restricted. We could not move out freely as before. We had to and were locked up at our homes. This was very miserable for all of us. Although there are many advantages of being at home still, we missed the olden days.
But, talking about the brighter side of this lockdown, I can say confidently that many of us got a golden opportunity to learn those hobbies or any such new thing that we always wanted to do, but could not due to lack of time or due to our busy schedules. Many of us, would have learned a new skill or developed a hobby, and some of us would have honed our existing skill sets. Be it trying out the Dalgona coffee or struggling with our online classes or even managing to watch IPL matches without going to the stadiums.

We all have gone through so much. Of course, there was a low. Thought that every other person’s life was sorted unlike yours. But the truth comes out to be that every teenager had gone through this phase or is still going through this phase. Mental health has taken a toll on every teenager’s life.
But if we observe closely, we know that we learned many things during this lockdown as an individual.
The essence of a relationship, the value of family, the value of money in a household, the importance of our mother’s cooking, and finally we understood the difference between temporary and permanent. I think this should be one of the greatest learning and we should see this as a boon, rather than a bane.
All in all, it has been a different and quite adventurous part of every teenager’s life.

The ABCs of Dalal Street

In this pandemic, the stock market has become the focus of everybody due to its huge rise and many people have started investing in stocks. But most of the people who think of investing don’t know the process and also there are so many misconceptions about basic stock terms. So this blog clears the basic terminology about stocks.

What are stocks?
-2 possible ways to get profit from stocks
-The changes in taxes for dividends received as per the new budget of 2020.
-What are stock exchanges?
-Ways to trade stocks.
-Importance of stock market in any country
Stocks are a way of getting ownership in a company. So does this mean we have rights in the company’s decisions or how the company should work?
Let's take an example,
So let's say you buy 1,00,000 shares of the company ‘Reliance Industries’. The total number of shares of the company is 6.3billion. The percentage share you hold in the company with these 1,00,000 shares is 0.0015, which is insignificant. 1,00,000 is still a very large number and yet the percentage owned is so small. In Fact, for just 1% ownership in the company, you need to buy roughly 6.3 crore shares of the company. The share price is around 1500 rupees. Now you can imagine what the cost of 6.3 crores would be. But this doesn’t mean we have no say in the company’s decisions, we do have a say in the form of voting rights but the votes are weighted according to the no. of shares held. So most people have a negligible say in these decisions.

The next question arises that even if we own a small percentage of the shares, shouldn’t we get at least some amount of the profit as we are-no matter how small-owners of the company. The answer to this question is YES! There are mainly 2 ways in which you can earn money through shares-
1. The price of the share rises-This is the obvious way of earning profits. You sell a share if its price is above the price you bought it at and the difference is your profit.
2. Dividends- These are part of a company’s profit that is distributed among the shareholders. The shareholders receive some amount for each share they own. In other words, dividends are like rewards to the shareholders for their investment and trust in the company.
As per the new budget of 2020, taxes have been levied on the income received through dividends. Before the budget, dividends were tax-free as companies had to pay dividend distribution tax(DDT) before distributing dividends but now this tax has been abolished.
Now, we have a pretty basic idea of what stocks are; but people are still confused about questions like“why does the stock market exist in the first place?”, " Where and how can we buy and sell shares?” etc.
So stocks are traded at Stock Exchanges. In a broad sense, a stock exchange is a place that brings the government, various organizations, and people together so that trading activities can take place. There are 2 major stock exchanges in India- the Bombay stock exchange(BSE) and the National stock exchange(NSE).

So stocks are traded at stock exchanges. But how are stocks traded?
There are basically 2 ways to buy and sell stocks-
1. Electronic trade-Here, buyers and sellers are matched electronically without knowing the identities of each other.
2. Physical trade-Here, trading is done face to face in a particular area called the “Trading floor”.
Physical trading has become obsolete nowadays and most exchanges now offer the option of electronic trade only.

Now we know the basic stuff about the stock market but why is the stock market important? Why is there a Stock market in all major countries?
The stock market boosts the economy of the country in many ways. Firstly, It helps the companies to raise capital for their business and at the same time offers scope for profits to the investor. This results in the development and progress in the companies and at the same time, the profits to people ensure greater spending on goods and other commodities which is again good for the economy. The stock market is a strong indicator of the state of the economy of the country. This attracts foreign companies and investors to a Country(if they see that the stock market is doing well) which is very positive for the growth of any country.
