From the Movie – 36th Chamber of Shaolin – Lessons on investment


In 1978 the move ” 36th chamber of shoalin” was released and it was a great hit all over the world and in India too.  I am sure many of you would have seen that movie and for the younger generation, if they have not seen, please do watch it.
I am not getting into the story of the movie but the training sessions the hero undergoes to master the skill.
Some of the training sessions are highlighted below for your reference and usage.
a. Wrist training.
This is a training about lifting a small weight but tied to long stick and because the of length of the stick the lifting becomes difficult and force required is Length of the stick x weight. For the same weight, as the length increases the force required to lift also increases. (Mechanical Advantage – Physics)
Analogy in investment
