Ms Vasundhara Bahadur, London School of Economics alumnus, currently studying in Smith College, began by explaining the subject to the students and soon had the audience enthralled. She talked about the basic concepts – the accounts involved, the do’s and don’ts, and the procedure – of exchanging stocks.
