I've always liked playing Chess. While it was my favorite pastime, it has benefits few other sports offer.
From problem solving skills to improving creativity, the game has it all to engage one's mental health.
There are many ways to play the game. In fact, the number of possible moves is more than the atoms in the universe!
Recently I read about a chess technique called 'Retrograde Analysis'. Simply put, it is used to solve problems backwards from known outcomes.
I realised, this technique is useful almost everywhere. Think about where you want to be in 5 years. Then work backwards step by step on what you need to do right now to reach there.
It is a very useful concept in the investing world as well.

Acche Din Are Here Again…Sensex 100,000 To Follow
Modi's win has already caused the Sensex to soar significantly in celebration.
And we have no doubt that we could be looking at Sensex 100,000 in the years to come.
Early investors have the potential to get immensely rich…as long as they can identify the right opportunities.
Here's how we identify the best stocks to profit from.
Click here for full details on the 4 stocks that stand to benefit in the years to come…and lead to huge potential profits for investors.
Think of India after say, 5 or 10 years. Where do you think we will be as a country?
- Will we move towards more urbanisation?
- Will everyone have a smartphone and a bank account?
- Will we have smart cities and better roads replacing villages with no connectivity right now?
- Will we become an export giant like China?
- Will we shore up our defence like other superpowers?
With the Modi government back in power, these trends will accelerate.
Now, all of this might not play out perfectly as we might imagine.
But for India's large population, even a small improvement is big.
A 5% shift from rural to urban means a shift of around 65 million people. Imagine all the new markets that would be created. Also, India's demographic dividend means we have a young population with potential for a lot of consumption.
That is why I strongly believe in the Indian economy's long-term growth potential.
Looking forward to the next 5 or 10 years, I believe there are 50 irreversible trends that will play out in the years to come.
Megatrends that are bound to take India to the Sensex 1,00,000 mark.
I call this, the Rebirth of India.
Now, for you dear reader, it's important to be in the right stocks when this happens.
By the right stocks, I mean stocks backed by strong fundamentals. Stocks with huge potential but also with a margin of safety in terms of valuations.
A basket of such stocks will cover every aspect of India's growth potential.
I have identified 7 stocks that are likely to benefit from this trend.
In Chess, a strong board position eventually decides the winner.
I believe, with these 7 stocks, you are in strong position to win in the investing world.
If there is one area that needs immediate attention by the government, it is job creation.

In Modi's New India Invest in These Kind of Companies
Have you ever thought why people are subscribing to Netflix, Hotstar, and Amazon Prime instead of buying a DVD?
Why people are listening to music on Spotify, Saavn, and Gaana instead of buying a CD?
Why people are shopping through Amazon and Flipkart instead of going to stores?
Why people are using Uber and Ola instead of using their own cars?
These companies are making huge profits by scaling their business everywhere and killing competitors.
And investors love such companies.
That's why there is quite a shift from the traditional way of doing business.
Want to know which Indian companies are using the same strategy to grow their business?
According to a CMIE survey, the unemployment number stands at 41 million people. That is too big a number to be ignored.
Now, job creation at such a mass level won't be a walk in the park. To set the wheels in motion, the government will have to look at infrastructure spending.
Capacity expansion in new projects has seen a gradual slowdown in the past few years.
Infra Capacity Expansion Likely to Be the Key Focus of the Modi Government
From Rs 3.3 trillion in June 2018, the number has come down sharply to Rs 2.1 trillion as of March 2019. I believe this will the first area the government will look to focus on. Apart from creating jobs in the infrastructure sector, it opens a lot of other avenues.
Better infrastructure will mean better connectivity to non-metros. This will attract manufacturing companies to set shop in these towns. It will give a boost to the urbanisation of the population.
This is a trend I see clearly playing out in the coming years.
Infrastructure spending -> Improved roads -> Increased two-wheeler sales.
It is just one of the 50 irreversible trends I believe will carry the Sensex to 1,00,000.
