Definition of 'Systematic Risk'
The risk inherent to the entire market or entire market segment.

Also known as "un-diversifiable risk" or "market risk."

Interest rates, recession and wars all represent sources of systematic risk because they affect the entire market and cannot be avoided through diversification. Whereas this type of risk affects a broad range of securities, unsystematic risk affects a very specific group of securities or an individual security. Systematic risk can be mitigated only by being hedged.

Even a portfolio of well-diversified assets cannot escape all risk.
________________________________________________________________________________
Definition of 'Unsystematic Risk'
Company or industry specific risk that is inherent in each investment. The amount of unsystematic risk can be reduced through appropriate diversification.

Also known as "specific risk," "diversifiable risk" or "residual risk."

For example, news that is specific to a small number of stocks, such as a sudden strike by the employees of a company you have shares in, is considered to be unsystematic risk.

...highest selling English novels published in India[citation needed], and remained on the bestseller list until now since its release in 2004, tied along with other novels by Chetan The novel is set in the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, in the period 1991 to 1995. It is about the adventures of three mechanical engineering students (and friends), Hari Kumar (the narrator), Ryan Oberoi, and Alok Gupta, who fail to cope with the grading system of the IITs. Ryan is a bit smart and outspoken, whereas Alok and Hari are mildly cry babies. The three hostelmates – Alok, Hari and Ryan get off to a bad start in IIT – they screw up the first class quiz. And while they try to make amends, things only get worse. It takes them a while to realize: If you try and screw with the IIT system, it comes back to double screw you. Before they know it, they are at the lowest echelons of IIT society. They have a five-point-something GPA out of ten, ranking near the bottom of their classes. The book is narrated in the first person by Hari, with some small passages by his friends Ryan and Alok, as well as a letter by Hari's girlfriend Neha Cherian. It deals with the lives of the three friends, whose elation on making it to one of the best engineering colleges in India is quickly deflated by the rigor and monotony of academic work. Most of the book deals with the numerous attempts by the trio to cope with and/or beat the system as well as Hari's fling with Neha who just happens to be the......

Understanding Work Team

...provide with housing loan facilities to employees through HDFC and State Bank of India. Unique re-imbrued the interest amount on house loan exceeding 4%. The loan entitlement is dependent upon the income of workers. Inspite of all the facilities provided to the workers absenteeism was very high thus creating problems in the production. In July 1995, HR executive, Alok Gupta received a complaint from line supervisor, Prakash Sharma that production was suffering due to absenteeism in his department. Alok Gupta was perplexed. The reason being that with 52 weekly off, 9 casual leaves and 22 earned leaves provided to the workers in line with Factory Act 1948 under Section 52, the absenteeism rate was still 18 %. In January 1996, a meeting was called by Alok Gupta and in consultation with Prakash Sharma, it was decided that warning should be given to chronic cases and the workers who had started remaining absent should be counseled. Inspite of doing this no change was observed until April 1996. Alok Gupta reported to Priya Kumar, Human resources manager about increasing complaints related to absenteeism. Priya Kumar, Alok Gupta and Prakash Sharma in a brain storming session concluded that punishment was not the solution. An Incentive scheme was felt to be the solution to the existing problem. Thus, the management offered the employees the scheme of doubling the amount of annual interest free loans from Rs 5000 to Rs 10 000 to those who were regular at their work. A plan chalked......

Ryan sat next to him, a porno mag in hand, his cigarette filling Alok’s room with smoke. “Are you guys nuts? Smoking and porn this early in the morning,” I tut-tutted. “What are you so worked up about? Why not do the best things when one is still fresh,” Ryan said. “Alok, your parents are here,” I said. “What ?“ Alok said as the chips in his hands fell. “Yes your mom is climbing the stairs. She sounds mad and worried you didn’t call.” “You mean she is coming here” Alok said, waving his hands to rid of the cigarette smoke. “Yes, and I think she is going to see your broken bones now.” “Fuck”, Alok said. “Just stay in bed. We’ll cover your legs with sheets,” Ryan said, stuffing the the porno under Alok’s mattress. “Cant. His dad is downstairs waiting see his only son,” I said and dug into the chips.

Masculinity

...Samuel Cabrera ANTH 321 Professor Gill Response Paper Four Gender and sexuality have been the core of many debates in many cultural norms, in particular when it comes to religion, class and political reforms. Authors such as Dan Savage, Serena Nanda, and Alok Gupta have taken the role to write about these issues in North America and India. These authors argue that the intersection of sex and religion, gender in religion, and class in sexuality have been at the core of the gender and sexuality movement. The idea of “class” being an issue to “class” when it comes to sexuality in India has been contributed to a lot of debate (Gupta). Also, when it comes to sexuality in religion in a North American content the idea of anything other than heterosexuality is blind in the catholic religious practice. However, when it comes to gender practices in India, the Hindu religion is more open and understanding to the idea of the third gender. The rise of concern of homosexuality when it comes to religion in American culture is one that is gaining attention in the homosexual community. Especially when it comes to the Catholic practice and its unwillingness to welcome the gay community into there religion. Dan Savage argues that the Catholic religion ignores the gay community because the sin of homosexuality can be seen by the open eye, and ignores the fact that most of the heterosexual followers of the religion engage in the practice of nonprocreative sex. For example, Dan Savage......

ACPL was a leading national player in the confectionery industry. It had desired to expand its supply to the market by subcontracting orders to other manufacturers. It had also desired to retain full control over the quality and production processes. It had promised the sub-contractors to compensate them adequately in terms of volume of business and conversion charges. To KCPL the advantages were in getting assured return on its investment and access to ACPL’s manufacturing expertise but the disadvantages were in the possible loss of independence in decision-making, dilution of company’s own brand, MKG, and family prestige. KCPL and its Background KCPL was started in 1945 by Mohan Kumar Gupta, then 28, in Jaipur, Rajasthan, to sell sugar candies under the brand ‘MKG’. Earlier he was a worker in a candy unit in Jaipur.

...brothers Rajesh and Alok, two having wives Priya and Mala respectively, wheras Sandeep never married. On the persuasion of the family, Sandeep tried to convince them that he was not going to donate the entire property for the charitable purpose. Sandeep made an absolute disposition for 1/3rd of the property in favour of the unborn child of Mala, and created life interest in favour of Mala for the same. He put one condition that the property will vest in such child only after he/ she attains the age of 30 years. He intended the 1/5th of the monthly benefits from the property to be used for the purposes of alms to be given for the beggars near a very famous temple of city. Moreover for other 1/3rd of the property he made a disposition in the form of a 99 year lease in favour of Alok. Furthermore the creation of this lease disposition although started in presence of sandeep, was never completed in sandeep’s presence because he had to leave the city for some urgent business work. Therefore one Manjeet was assigned the duty by Sandeep to finalise the lease in favour of Alok. Manjeet apart from the original document attached one annexure, with the main lease agreement, consisting of a condition that Alok needed to accumulate 1/4th share out of the monthly benefits arising from the property for the maintenance of the children of Alok. Whereas Sandeep had never himself put this condition into the deed, this was later on included into by Manjeet himself. Thereafter Alok went ahead and......
