Why do most companies want to be listed? Google says, “to raise funds,” and so would a regular retail investor. If only the poor investors knew what they do. 🤷‍♀️

Mukherjee is an avid reader and loves to write as much as read. She is the youngest of all but handles chores like a 50-year-old woman. She takes a lot on her plate and somehow, eerily manages to get the job done. As Hazel Grace stated, she could read a good author's grocery list, and so would Miss Mukherjee.
