I like to work hard and live a good life. I want to give the best to my wife and son, as well as my parents who live with us. I own a gas station in the suburbs of Mumbai. I had taken a loan to set up my business. So a major chunk of my earnings goes in repaying the loan. I also have a car loan to repay. About 20% earnings go into savings to create an emergency fund and an education fund for my son who is 10. A substantial amount is spent on ensuring a good lifestyle for my family.
My son is a huge movie buff, so weekends are spent watching movies he likes and eating out. As a family, we also like to travel. So we ensure we do a domestic trip during the Diwali holidays and an international trip in summer vacation.
I also invest in stocks and mutual funds. I make it a point to buy gold coins every Akshaye Tritiya.
