Investment Wisdom from Dussehra: Learning from Lord Ram and Ravana


Dussehra, the festival of triumph, signifies the victory of good over evil, a celebration of Lord Ram’s conquest over the demon king Ravana. This epic tale of Dussehra is rich with life lessons, even when it comes to investing in mutual funds. Drawing inspiration from the timeless wisdom of Lord Ram and the errors of Ravana, we can uncover invaluable advice for mutual fund investors.

  1. Diversify Like Lord Ram

In the story of Dussehra, Lord Ram gathers a diverse army, each member with unique strengths, to defeat Ravana. Similarly, mutual fund investors should understand the significance of diversification. Spread your investments across different asset classes, such as equity funds, debt funds, and hybrid funds. This diversification helps mitigate risk and ensures that your investment portfolio remains resilient in various market conditions.

  1. Long-Term Vision

Lord Ram’s mission to rescue Sita required unwavering commitment and a long-term vision. Similarly, successful mutual fund investing demands patience and a focus on the long-term. Mutual funds are best suited for investors with a time horizon of at least five years or more. By staying committed to your investments, you can reap the rewards of compounding and ride out market fluctuations.

  1. Beware of Overconfidence

Ravana’s arrogance and overconfidence led to his ultimate downfall. In the world of mutual fund investments, overconfidence can be equally detrimental. Avoid chasing quick gains or attempting to time the market. It’s essential to recognize your limits and seek professional advice when needed. Avoid becoming a victim of overconfidence in your investment decisions.

  1. Risk Management

Ravana’s reckless behavior and disregard for consequences resulted in his defeat. Mutual fund investors must be vigilant in managing risk. Different mutual funds carry varying degrees of risk, and it’s crucial to match your risk tolerance with the appropriate fund. Consider your financial goals and risk appetite when selecting funds to ensure that you are comfortable with the level of risk associated with your investments.

  1. Regular Review and Rebalancing

Lord Ram continuously assessed the changing circumstances and adapted his strategies accordingly. As a mutual fund investor, it’s vital to periodically review your portfolio and rebalance it as necessary. Over time, the allocation of assets in your portfolio may deviate from your intended targets due to market movements. Regularly rebalancing your investments helps maintain your desired risk-return profile.

  1. Seek Professional Guidance

Lord Ram sought counsel from wise advisors and well-wishers. Likewise, mutual fund investors should consider seeking professional guidance when navigating the complex world of mutual funds. Financial advisors can provide insights, recommend suitable funds, and assist with aligning your investments with your financial goals.


The saga of Dussehra carries more than just a moral tale of good conquering evil. It imparts valuable lessons for mutual fund investors, emphasizing diversification, a long-term perspective, humility, risk management, regular review, and professional guidance. By incorporating these principles into your mutual fund investment strategy, you can work towards achieving your financial goals and ensuring a prosperous financial future. Like Lord Ram’s triumph over Ravana, your success in the world of mutual funds will be a culmination of wisdom and prudence in your investment decisions.
