Kothaligad is more commonly known as the fort of Peth because the village of Peth is situated at its base. The pinnacle of the Peth can be seen from the village. It looks like a filed surface. On reaching the top of the fort, we see caves carved in huge rocks. The first one is the cave of a Goddess, besides which is a water cistern and the last one is the spacious Bhairoba cave.

1. Do not expect to become an expert day trader right away. It takes considerable time, practice and effort to learn the ropes.
2. Paper trade or use a simulated trading Web site to practice your trading techniques before you use your own "real" money.
3. Eliminate the fear of losing because "scared" money rarely profits.
4. Always limit your losses - use stop orders.
5. Learn from your losses - take advantage of each loss to improve your knowledge of the market.
6. Never allow large profits to turn into losses. Consider selling if the market moves against you by about 25% or so from your peak profit point.
7. If the markets on a given day are not performing or reacting the way you expected, it is best to simply get out.
8. Never add to a losing position. It is a prescription for disaster.
9. Try to predict the general direction of a stock price but do not try to pick tops and bottoms. You will rarely succeed in accomplishing this.
10. Remember that standing aside is a position and often the best one to take if you cannot form an opinion as to where the market is heading on a given day.
11. The key difference between winning and losing day traders is the ability to exercise discipline to avoid mistakes or bad trading tactics.
12. You must subordinate your will to the will of the market. The market is always right.
13. Always keep records of your trading results and analyse the results.
14. Good day traders generally sell into good news and buy on bad news.
15. Patience, perseverance, determination and a rational trading plan are the key attributes of a successful day trader.
16. Never get emotionally involved with your trades as emotions often work against you.
17. Do not try to profit on every trade. It is the total profit you make that matters not the number of individual wins.
18. Learn when you can rely on instinct as opposed to analysis.
19. Don't chase momentum if you are unsure as to the exit point. Assume the market will reverse itself as soon as you open a position.
20. Be flexible. Remember that different strategies suit different days and different stocks.
21. Decide each day how much risk you are willing to take and stick to your decision.
22. Access to timely information and fast execution of trades is essential to day trade successfully. Subscribe to a good financial information service and open an account with a Direct Access Trading firm or an online broker that caters to day traders.
23. Do not try to focus on too many stocks at once. Limit your focus to a manageable number.
24. Always think positive no matter how much you lose. Accept your losses gracefully, try to learn from them and move on.
25. If you do not find day trading fun or find it too stressful you will not likely be successful. Try some other activity.

If you follow the above mentioned Rules ... you are likely to be successful in day trading.

आयुष्यात प्रेम करायचय मला ...

दूर कुठेतरी समुद्रकिनारीहातात हात घालुन बसायचय मला,
आकाशातील तारकांकडे बघतानाभविष्याचे हितगुज करायचय मला,
आयुष्यात प्रेम करायचय मला ...

माझ्या मांडीत डोक ठेऊनतिला झोपी गेलेल पहायचय मला,
तिच्या शांत चेहेऱ्याकडे पहातानास्वतःशी स्मित करायचय मला,
आयुष्यात प्रेम करायचय मला ...

तिच्यासोबत थोड दुष्टपणे वागुनतिला रागाने लालबुंद करायचय मला,
तिची आसवें पुसता पुसता पटकन मिठीत घ्यायचय तिला,
आयुष्यात प्रेम करायचय मला ...

आयुष्यातील तिचा हिमालयतिच्या बरोबरीने चढायचाय मला,
शिखरावर पोहोचताना माझ्या सोबतीच आनंदतिच्या डोळ्यातुन व्यक्त झालेला अनुभवायचाय मला,
आयुष्यात प्रेम करायचय मला ...

ति माझ्यापासुन दुर जात असताना विरहाच्या कल्पनेने खिन्न व्हायचय मला,
ति नसल्यामुळे होणाऱ्या वेदनांनाडोळ्यावाटे मुक्त करायचय मला,
आयुष्यात प्रेम करायचय मला ...

तिच्यसोबतचे माझे आयुष्यझऱ्याप्रमाणे अवखळ जगायचय मला,
पुन्हा जन्मेन तर जिच्यासाठीतिचा चेहेरा पहात जायचय मला,
आयुष्यात प्रेम करायचय मला ...

This poem is very close to my heart... and hope it touches yours too

Friendship...or...Love...If you had to Choose one?

This one is dedicated to those who are in love and are apart.
tere bin main yun kaise
jiya kaise jiya tere bin
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin
lekar yaad teri raaten meri kati - 2
mujhse baaten teri karti hai chaandani
tanha hai tujh bin raaten meri
din mere din ke jaise nahi
tanha badan tanha hai ruh nam meri aankhen rahe
aaja mere ab rubaru
jeena nahi bin tere
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin

kabse aankhen meri raah mein tere bichhi - 2
bhule se hi kahi tu mil jaaye kabhi
bhule na mujhse baaten teri
bheegi hai har pal aankhen meri
kyun saans loon kyun main jiyu
jeena bura sa lage
kyun ho gaya tu bewafaaa mujhko bata de wajah
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin ...
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin ...
