    Mr. Sajan explained the fundamental differences between savings and investments, stating that savings is the excess of income over expenditure and that savings need to be invested to generate income. On the other hand, investments are focused on creating assets, wealth, and a risk-reward relationship. He also highlighted the power of compounding, beating inflation, and the importance of generating real returns over the long term to create wealth.

    He also talked about the Indian capital market, explaining that it operates from Monday to Friday and is divided into two exchanges, the National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). The market operates from 9:15 am to 3:30 pm IST, with a lunch break from 1:00 pm to 1:30 pm IST. The BSE Capital Market Segment (CMS) is a platform for companies to raise capital and for trading equity shares, debentures, and other securities.
