Welcome to Pariah
"Spend each day trying to be a little wiser than you were when you woke up. Day by day, and at the end of the day-if you live long enough-like most people, you will get out of life what you deserve" - Charles T. Munger
My name is Veroshan. Over the years I have developed a natural curiosity for business, finance and economics (and the lessons that follow). Whilst I certainly don't profess to be an expert on the subject matter, I enjoy learning new things each day and look forward to sharing my thoughts with you along the journey, however helpful they may be.
The Pariah Story
How it started
The story of Pariah began in 2017 when I picked up a copy of the Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham, and subsequently was introduced to the wisdom of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. It fundamentally challenged how I thought about investing and business and helped to shape my worldview. I have been on a path to consume more knowledge ever since!
A brief introduction: I am a Melbourne native, born and bred, with Sri Lankan heritage. I am a corporate M&A lawyer by profession, a long-time Carlton supporter (don't hold it against me) and a cricket fan (a cricket purist if you will - no T20!).
What is Pariah: Pariah is simply a forum over which I can share my thoughts. I figured if anyone was going to read my mad ramblings, it would at least help to stress test any ideas I had or conclusions I had drawn.
This blog will predominantly cover business, finance and economics, hopefully in a format that can be easily digested. Whilst I will freely share my views, please do not consider it financial advice or investment advice. It is simply my take on the lay of the land.
