What are your views on introducing finance as a subject in school?

Finance, especially personal finance should be a must in schools and colleges.

Funny how we remember what the powerhouse of a human cell is but not how to fill up a cheque.



Your tips to the younger generation on how to go about understanding the basic financial stuff.

If your school/college misses out, make sure that you don't. There's plenty of information on the internet. One can also take up a course.



How can one know if Finance is the field for them?

By trying it out. As simple as that. If you find it interesting well and good if you don't then you are always free to try other things.



One advice that you feel would have helped you while starting out in this field?


It is not as complicated as people believe it to be.



What is your idea of success or your mantra in life?

Don't be afraid to fail as long as you're learning from your mistakes.
