I very much enjoyed being back in Ireland to give a talk to the Trinity Student Managed Fund at Trinity Business School, Trinity College in Dublin. We took a historical look at the performance of various global markets over time. We also had a wonderful Q&A during which I reflected on key lessons I've taken from Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger.

I received a wonderful note from an investor named Johnny Bonner who translated my Ten Commandments of Investment Management into verses that rhyme. I am sharing Johnny’s note here. Thank you Johnny!
I very much enjoyed returning to the Investor’s Podcast with Preston Pysh and Stig Brodersen. We dove into cloning, the difficulty of beating a broad-based index like the S&P 500, and my lessons from owning a property and casualty insurance company.
I enjoyed speaking with Holly LaFon for the GuruFocus podcast. We discussed the market conditions in 1999 when I started my investment funds and investment opportunities in the U.S., India and other markets. I also answered a few questions from GuruFocus readers.

I very much enjoyed my Q&A session with the class of 2019 Dakshana scholars at Dakshana Valley on Dec. 26, 2018. I discussed my past failures (like Gandhigiri.org) before Dakshana Foundation, how to fight corruption and how Adam Smith’s ‘invisible hand’ works.
It was a pleasure to have my annual Christmas Eve Q&A session with the class of 2019 Dakshana scholars at JNV Kottayam, Kerala on Dec. 24, 2018. I talked about how to start a business and why Dakshana Foundation chose IIT-JEE preparation over primary education.
