Gangnam Style « Be Money Aware Blog

Be Money Aware” is a very well – written, well-reseacrhed site/ blog on the matters of the world of finance and  investments as, seen from the point of view of a [typical] lay, ‘retail investor’ .

The present article on “Gangnam Style” seems to have been spurred by the inherent trend of more and more and Indians also gravitating to the mindset of spending (first) rather than saving.

THe writer of the blog has dug up an intersting underlying aspect of Ganganam Style – “an upscale neighborhood of Seoul like Beverly Hills of California. It occupies a psychic place in the minds of Korea’s 99% and represents the luxurious life for which they strive”.

But as is the typical style of tis blog, it does not just  rest with the introduction and /or detailing of the subject. It goes on to present all possible aspects, that a (lay) investor / reader should know in order to a n ‘awakened consumer’.

So we have an excellent treatise on Gangnam Style, to read on, enrich our knoweldge and fully enjoy …………

Gangnam Style « Be Money Aware Blog.

I thank “Be Money Aware” to concur to reblog this article here.



In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging! One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems. So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation. At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships. I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator. And yet, The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

  1. Thanks sir for this informative and I could understand the ‘thing’ after reading the original blog of money aware. But… But….
    I had hardly recovered from the shock of Michal Jackson that I had to endure the so called ‘viral’ “kaveri D” thing and NOW one can truly call me dumb because here is this dumbest of all’ “Gangnam Style” which I forced myself to watch today. I feel so low and my only cure will be to listen to Pdt. Ravi Shankar’s sitar or vocal by Pdt. Jasraj for extended period of time. (:

    1. This is the precise lament of the intent of the original article – What most of us run after today is so fickle, insignificant and worthless! And still , we seem to care less about our culture and spend our lives on what others do, just to keep with Jonases!!

    2. If you do seek an enjoyable ‘light interlude, I would suggest visit to “Songs of Yore” [], a site that vividly and tastefully presents Hindi Film Songs of the Golden Era – 30s to 60s .
