My Work Place (FPFS – Day 1)

Hii Friends , 
One of my dearest friend Tagged me with Five Pics Five Stories challange and I was like ... How will I write it and on what topic as I write only on Stocks which are much easeir than this !! Yes it is hehe !!!

Anyways, So I thought let me write on what I know and Yup it clicked me , what could be more intersting than to write on the place where I work !!! Here is my Day 1 of my FPFS challange

                              !! THE ICONIC BSE (PHIROZE JJ TOWER) !!
The iconic Phiroze Jeejeebhoy Tower is in South Mumbai and houses Asia's oldest 140 year old bourse BSE, also known as BOMBAY STOCK EXCHANGE. It's a 29 storey tower with area space of around 3,50,000 sq.ft, accomodating 540 odd entities mainly by brokers and financial institutions since 1980. BSE is located excatly in between of Dalal Street, Hamam Street and Bombay Samachar Marg. which gives easy access to financial institutions with the stock exchange and so BSE Building is not only the important in commercial value but also its a symbol of financial capital. BSE is Asia's first & fastest Stock Exchange with speed of 200 micro seconds. BSE has more than 5,500 companies listed making it world's No.1 exchange in terms of listed members. The companies listed on BSE commands a total market capitalization of US$ 1.69 Trillion of 15 April 2015. The exchange was targeted by terrorists for the first time in 1993 when a powerful car bomd exploded in the basement of BSE claiming 50 lives, after then the security at BSE was fortified with"Z" category security control and half a dozen commandos are always stationed in the building premises permanently.


This is the second enternce at east where a Five foot tall bronze Bull Statue is erected since 2008, u have to get a security clearance, where by you are issued a security pass. This entrence at east is infamous due to superstitious beliefs of old timers that it gave a big fall in markets with Harshad mehta scam soon after this gates was opened.

The most interesting I feel is this particular spot, there is a Sugarcane juice center just in front of the Eastern gate with Bull Statue with a huge screen which plays live news from Business channel. What's intersting is that during lunch time lots of people gather there, some having cane juice and some having  famous sandwiches of Paramesh or famous dosas from Jay Snacks  and
they all would be talking only on stocks.. You will hear people saying so an so stock will go up or down, some would be starring at the screen , some would be calling their brokers giving instructions for buy or sell. This particular place becomes more evedient when there's a fall in the market, all kinds of emotions from traders to proffessionals, even the security commandos are not spared they too enjoy the sites....after all this is for money honey !!! 





A GLIMPSE FROM HISTORY !!



This was my first attempt so hope that u all like it.. do share in your views and comment on .. Have a wonderful day Ahead :)
