honestly instead of looking at companies like google or Amazon for amazing returns. I would start researching companies in india that would attract companies like google to invest. look for the amazon or alibaba or india, that's where the best profits lie in my opinion.

The hosts are probably the two most annoying people I can currently think of. I still come back because they bring good content quickly. I always skip past the intro.
