DSE IPO and the Imitation Game
DSE Tanzania IPO
A very attractive IPO was listed in Tanzania, a monopoly. It doubled on the listing day, i.e. yesterday.
Worth keeping an eye on it.
Disclosure: I and my associates may have vested interest.
India has been all about imitating the West in the recent three hundred years from Music to Science. One of my experiences, now that I think of it, find it quite strange is that the school that I studied in DPS, Mathura Road used to give out Scholar Badge, which one could stitch on the blazer, thus distinguishing one from have nots. Students over 80% marks were eligible for this badge. Such students were eligible for a blue tie after three consecutive years, and a blue blazer after six years.
One could see by high school who have been academic wizards and academic losers (Blue Blazer vs Green Blazer). This system came from western society and schools.
Thank you DPS for adding to the suicide rate in an already degree and academic qualifications obsessed country.
One wonders the intellectual and emotional quotient of the society that doles out these scholar badges in schools, when the nature itself does not put a visible halo or physical distinctive sign, so others do not feel inferior. There are no physically visible signs to the naked eye for superior personality and achievement of a self realized saint or highly intellectual being of the human race.
I am glad that my son will have no such inane benchmarks to follow, hope you don’t force your kids into this foolishness.
