I'd like to highlight 3 stories today. The first one 'Flipkart effect: Startups may lose sheen in job market', reflects how quickly cycles go up and down now. The high was never to be believed and neither is the low as bad as it seems. Startups will hopefully stabilize as a job sector soon. The second story shows us that David Warner, captain of the winning IPL team is probably as astute an investor as he is a cricketer. Finally, a story from The Economist which makes an interesting case for why humans are so intelligent, and it has something to do with human babies being so helpless, compared to other animal young ones.
