Don’t these Ramayana characters resemble real life investors?

Ramayana is one of the two major epics of ancient India. It is the story of King Ram and his quest to rescue his beloved wife Sita from the clutches of Ravan with the help of Hanuman.

In most of the Indian families, we grow up listening to the tales of Ramayana from our parents and grandparents. And why not, this Hindu epic has given us so many invaluable life lessons be it personal, professional or financial. These lessons help us emerge as a more refined and reformed human being.

Talking about financial lessons, Ramayana teaches us that we should lead a disciplined financial life, protect our hard-earned moneyand have patience and persistence, among others.In fact, each character in Ramayana has a role to play and there is so much we can learn from them too.

In this article, we tell you how a few pivotal Ramayana characters resemble real life investors.


·  Ram

Lord Ram was exiled to the woods for 14 years. During that time, he accepted his fate and remained composed. Just like Lord Ram, a real life investor who resembles this trait sticks with good companies for a long term. He remains calm and composed even during stock market fluctuations and volatility. He is well aware that he is going to succeed.



·  Laxman

Laxman, brother of Lord Ram was deeply devoted to him. He would follow Lord Ram through all risks and adventures. The character resembles an investor who is hyper active and would sell even with a small swing in either direction. Just like Laxman follows Lord Ram’s advice, this kind of investor would also listen to other expert investors or financial advisors to build a solid portfolioand would end up making profits.



· Hanuman

Hanuman is known for his bravery and power. He held the power to single-handedly fight against Ravan’s army with his war-winning tactics and tricks. Just like Hanuman, this kind of investor exhibits bravery and is ready to bear any level of risk. In fact, he carries ample risk in asset allocation.



·  Sena

The varansena played a pivotal role in helping Lord Ram build a huge bridge over the sea todefeat theRavan’s army. They worked very hard to build the bridge brick by brick. Just like the sena, this kind of investor keeps investing in small amounts and ends up building a huge portfolio.



· Vibhishan

Vibhishan, brother of Ravan was a demon by birth but he always considered himself to be a Brahmin. He moved away from his own family and gave up his royal status to support and aid Lord Ram to fight against Ravan. This type of investor knows early on that he is holding wrong stocks and quickly after realizing his mistakes, switches to good stocks.



·  Kumbhakarna

Kumbhakarna, another famous character of Ramayana, is popularly known for sleeping for long durations. He would not care about anything when it comes to his sleep. Just like him, this kind of investor would buy stocks and forget about them in the long run. He wouldn’t care whether the stock becomes a multi bagger or goes for bankruptcy. He would just remain silent.



·  Mandodari

Mandodari was the wife of Ravan. Despite knowing the evil deeds of Ravan, she would still be at his side. This character resembles an investor who is well-aware of the fact that he holds the wrong stocks from the beginning but is unable to make an exit.



·  Sita

Sita, wife of Lord Ram was known for her selfless love towards her husband. She stood by him during every phase of life. This character resembles an investor who sticks to his holdings religiously even when others criticize about his stock pick. Ultimately, this investor makes significant wealth.



· Brahma

Brahma is the creator of the universe. Likewise, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) plays the role of Brahma. SEBI works on the principles of Dharma and does what is in the best interest of the investors.
