What is Hundi/Poorja - 


  A  Hundi may be defined as a bill of exchange drawn in a vernacular language in accordance with the custom of local merchants. In fact, the term "hundi" is a derivative of the Sanskrit word "hund" which means "to collect".

A trader or manufacturer who has no or little access to banks still makes out a hundi which is governed by customs and usages prevailing in their mercantile community, and in some cases, also by the Negotiable Instruments Act 1881. The Act Applies to hundies where no such custom has been established.

  3. The Science of Getting Rich is a timeless classic written in 1910 by Wallace D. Wattles. It is a bold title for a book and suggests that getting rich is a predictable outcome if one can master the principles outlined in the book. Here is how Wallace D. Wattles puts it in his own words, "The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing things in a certain way. Those who do things in this certain way, whether on purpose or accidentally, get rich. Those who do not do things in this certain way, no matter how hard they work or how able they are, remain poor. It is a natural law that like causes always produce like effects. Therefore, any man or woman who learns to do things in this certain way will infallibly get rich." Bobby Pillow Lawyer
