When I passed out from St. Stephen's College , Delhi and settled down in Jalandhar in 1980 , I wanted to buy some ( very small number ) of shares which were available only at Bombay Stock Exchange.
I contacted many Share Brokers of Mumbai. All refused to entertain my small amount transactions. Nearly all would simply not reply at all.
But , the biggest Mumbai Share Broker and President of BSE , Late Mr. Mahendra Kampani of M/s Jamnadas Morarjee And Co. ( JM Financial ) not only accepted my small order but ,also, gave me valuable guidance and encouragement.
I had given an order for purchase of 100 L and T ( Rs.10 paid then ).
I received a personal message from Mr. Mahendra Kampani that L and T is greatly tipped in the market and has gone up from Rs. 45 to Rs. 50. . My order could only be executed at Rs. 50. However , if I did not wish to Buy at Rs. 50 , I should so convey and my order would be squared up with no loss to me.)
Great People are , always , humble.
May the Great Mr. Mahendra Kampani's soul Rest in Peace ( He died in a car accident in 1997 at the age of 58 )
