What is Insurance???

What is Insurance?insurance

This is a question that is top of the mind of every person who wants to buy an insurance policy or for an agent who wants to sell you an insurance policy for the first time.

Why do you need insurance?

insurance family

You need insurance so that you can take care of your family in case anything happens to you.

The agent who comes to sell the policies might be your uncle, neighbour ,friend or a relative who just showed up at your door and wants to sell you a policy so that you can get them commission.

So what is insurance really and how does it help a person especially a person in India. We are going to concentrate on Insurance in India as India is one of the countries which has the least insurance cover either for people or for industries or properties.Therefore let us first start by defining what is insurance.

In lay mans terms Insurance is the sharing of losses which can be compensated by monetary means by people who pay into a pool of funds that will be used to compensate the loss of a few who lose within the time frame where in the fund was supposed to be used.

Well that was a not lay men terms you say, in that case let me elaborate.

Assume that in a city there are one thousand shops. Each owner of a shop has Rs. One lakh worth of stocks in his shop.Suppose one of the shops were to have a fire and the stocks were destroyed then that shop owner will be left with no stocks and a heavy loss to bear.Further more the workers will be left without a job.

Thus in order to mitigate such losses that could happen to any one of these shops then about 1000 shop owners join together and pool one lakh rupee s by contributing Rs. 100 each, and when the loss happens next to one shop the pool of Rs. one lakh is given to the shop owner who has lost his stock so that he can buy back the stocks and restock himself.

All is well again. Thus by contributing just Rs. 100 each the city shop owners have insured themselves against a catastrophe which might affect any one of them. This is the essence of insurance.

The next question arises what happens when the next fire occurs, and the pool is now empty. Well the shop owners should immediately contribute to the fund once they have used the funds to pack the first loss, since every one of the 1000 shop owners might not have Rs. 100 left to contribute the funds again and someone in the group might not feel like paying right at that time, or what if two losses happened at the same time and there was no money to pay the second loss, such scenarios make the above system impractical for most purposes.

To make a more formal setup Insurance Companies are formed.

Insurance companies make it a point to collect insurance premiums from a lot of people (a lot more than the 1000 people) usually in the millions so that the chance of the pool getting depleted by a few members leaving at a time, or from multiple losses happening at the same time does not arise. They also study the pattern of losses that happen over time and decide what is the least amount of share that each member of the pool has to contribute so that the losses happening are covered (this is done by people who know a lot of math and have specialized in the study of Probability – more on that latter).

Mangalyaan ,after completing a journey of 666 million km in 10 months  Mars Orbiter Mission “MOM”  has sent out the first image from the Mars in just 12 hours as it started to orbit around the red planet.According to MOM’s Twitter account the images came out good along with the subtitle of “The view is good up here”.Hence ISRO too confirms that MOM’s image data.

Pride of India

25TH_ORBITER

ISRO fired The Main engine  for  24 minutes along with eight small thrusters so that it could be captured by Mar’s gravity and hence it can glide into the orbit.

India is now the first Asian nation to reach the Red Planet  as its Mangalyaan  entered to orbit on Wednesday.

India is now the first country to achieve its goal in its first attempt.

India has completed its Mission to Mars project with a budget of $74 million whereas NASA has spent nearly $671 million on its MAVEN.

MAVEN is orbiting around is studying Mars thin atmosphere and Mars water whereas Our Mangalyaan orbits around Mars to study  its surface and atmosphere for its chemical substance.

India now joins along with US,Europe and Russia in successful mission to Mars.

The life of the Craft is six months and later it will run out of fuel until then the Scientists will operate the Craft with their  five very specific instruments to collect data says the Scientic secretary of ISRO Mr.Koteswara Rao.

Prime Minister of India ,Mr.Narendra Modi who is very fortunate as he is also the Minister of Space was happy to learn that  the cost of our MOM was much less when compared to the haolly wood movie “Gravity” ,which was estimated to be $100 million.

Now as he is on his way to the U.S. the Honourable Prime Minister is about to sign the new agreement joint of Indo-U.S. Radar Satellite Mission not to mention that recently China and India have signed the agreement on “Peaceful uses of outer space”.Our Prime Minister is very happy that he can flaunt over this technological triumph on his trip to the U.S.

And Now many would like to join our team’s success.

When India was on the go with its mission to the moon  ,Chandrayan in 2008 China raced ahead with its its Chang’e-1 satellite successfully.But now India raced ahead with its mission to mars Magalyaan successfully in 2014 when china’s  to Mars Yinghuo-1 failed in 2012.

ISRO’s chairman Dr. K. Radhakrishnan has gone on record by saying, “We are not racing with anybody. We are racing with ourselves. We have to race to reach the next level of excellence.”

We Congragulate the team of ISRO and all others who are involved in this journey to Mission to Mars .You guys have become the pride of India and we are very proud of you .

 

 

A Mom’s View of Happiness

happy kidIt  was a Friday evening when my  6 yr old son came back from school .He had seen some spider man  pencil box of his friend and he had fixed an eye on that box. He was very excited to tell me about the box and all other spiderman toys his friend had at home. I immediately  knew that he wanted that spider man pencil box .After dinner time my son ,the clever one,slowly started again about the box and said that he also wanted one spidey box for himself .I told him that I will think about it. The next morning as soon as he got up he started again with the pencil box matter. I told him that we will go in the evening to look at it .I managed with same story for the whole week. Then finally it was Friday again and I decided to get him that box .He had also asked his friend which store and floor in the mall has the pencil box .His father was not that excited to get him the box as he had three boxes which was almost the same as this spiderman box. Well finally we reached the store and unfortunately  the spidey box was not available in that store .But they had other boxes something similar to that box. But my son was not interested .That other spidey pencil box was just Rs.150 only. My daughter then suggested that we search the other shops in the mall. Hence we searched more shops and luckily one shop did have the  spiderman  pencil box but it was a full set. The set contained all spiderman items like a pencil box, a sharpner, water bottle, a pencil case with 10 pieces, a pen case with 5 pieces, and a money saver tin which came with a lock and key. The cost of the set was RS.699.My son was excited when he saw that set. But when the sales man pinched in Ben 10 set which had almost all the items just like the spiderman set except the money saver tin  and  the case of pens were not in the box..But the Ben 10 set had a snack box.

choice-clipart-Choice

The number of Items in the Ben 10 was much less than the spiderman box. But my son was confused  whether to get the Ben 10 or the Spiderman set. I told him that once he choses then that will be his final decision and there will be no change and no more gifts till his birthday. Then finally he chose Ben 10. It was Rs.599.The shopping was finally over. My Son got his spiderman box set , my daughter got her favourite hair band and for me since we had dinner outside I escaped from cooking for the night. Everyone were happy .As soon as we came home my son was very excited and he was going through his gift for a long time. Then  the next day he was very excited to show his friends and so on went Saturday and Sunday. It was during bed time when he slowly started that he should have got the spiderman set instead of the Ben 10 set and he wanted the spiderman set instead since it was with the money saver tin.I got mad. I yelled at him and told him that he has made his decision and there was no change in it. He slept after crying for a long time. After a while I felt bad and checked out the new Ben 10 set.The set was quite neat and  nothing was used.Even the wrapped up covers for the items were still intact.Then I thought that it might be possible to exchange the set for the spiderman box the next day.Monday morning he again asked me whether I will exchange the set for him. I did not answer and my kids both went to school. When  my husband and I started  off to the office  I told him that I had the idea of changing the set .

hurrray
Hurray!!!!!

But he was not interested and started telling me that I was being too liberal with him and I have to teach him some good lessons like sticking to the choice that he had made even if it is a bad choice. But I wanted to change the set and I went to the store and exchanged the Ben 10 set to Spiderman set.

When I went to pick up my kids from school ,as soon as he saw me the first thing he asked me was whether I changed the set. When I said yes his face went up as bright as the sun. He was so happy that he told his friend about it and played so happily. When we went home from school he was so happy to see the box and started to explore it .

Did I teach my kid a good lesson , more ethics , to stick with choices , not to wish for unnecessary things and not to ask for all the things his friends  were having etc. I think  sometimes we should set aside the values to win the heart of our children .As a mom  from my point of view I think I did not teach him any of this but I was very waiting for that look on my son’s face which was more worth than all the other things.Is it or is it not?
