My Guru Warren Buffett, a master value investor, also warns repeatedly “Do Not Loose Money”. However based on his quote, “”, I ha”ve penned the article, wherein I have endevoured to show that risk does not lie in any particular instrument like share or bond nor is safety ensured by supposedly safe instruments
