Correlation between Indian and US Stock Markets

I invest (modestly) in both US and Indian stock markets. For the last few days I observed that on the days when US market was down, the Indian market was not necessarily down.

When I posted my observation on Facebook, people asked me for more concrete evidence for a lack of this correlation.

Celebrating India's Decriminalization of Homosexuality

I woke up to great news today! Five judges of the Supreme Court of India have unanimously decrimialized homosexuality. A few months back, I made a simple t-shirt design using R.

Although I have made this using “Om”, many religious symbol are possible if you know the correct character in Wingdings font.
