Great perspectives on investing from the wonderful investor and multidisciplinary thinker, Mohnish Pabrai.
I am sure the author of this book needs no introduction, but for the benefit of people who don’t know much about him, I am going to start with an interesting trivia. How much would you pay to have lunch with Warren Buffett? How about Rs 4 crore?
Don’t be surprised because that’s the amount Mohnish Pabrai (along with his friend Guy Spier) paid to have a private lunch with Warren Buffett in 2006.
Mohnish manages US$ 850+ million US based fund called Pabrai Funds and is a hardcore Buffett disciple. He has written another popular book called The Dhandho Investor.. However, the book I am talking about here is a rare one.
Mohnish has built 3 successful businesses in the last 25 years, including a technology company, a Buffett style hedge fund and a very successful philanthropic organization called Dakshana Foundation, which educates talented underprivileged children to qualify for IITs. With this kind of experience, I am sure he has some interesting insights for us.
In the previous issue of VIA, we had shared the link to Dakshana’s annual report. If you haven’t read it yet, I would suggest please don’t miss it.
