Infact can you even change your destiny ? . I often wonder if there is something called destiny and can we control/change it as per our needs and answer I get back from myself is “NO” . I might be wrong and yes it depends on one’s perspective too.

Yahoo finance has been number 1 finance portal for past many years. It takes less work to get to top than to stay at top. Number 2 position has always has number 1 to look forward to but number 1 has to be always innovative and competitive to beat the rest of the crowd. Though ppl often comment “Yahoo finance look the same for past couple of years” , but they need to know that we were always making our base stronger and stronger for better user experience and launch the following major projects and more
