Nandan Book Magazine

The most famous book magazine – Nandan had been started in the memory of prime minister of India. The magazine was in the memory of late prime minister of India Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru. The Nandan book magazine was started in 1964 and its first issue was dedicated to Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru.

The magazine is in the format of book which is the most famous among the children. Basically, in the north India the book magazine have gotten great popularity. It is dedicated to children of India.

It is Hindustan Times which make the children’s dream true to produce the magazine. Nandan is known as HT media children’s magazine also. According to the HT,
“Nandan believes in shaping the mind and behaviour of our children in a positive way, and to challenge their minds by exposing them to new ideas for the world of science and technology.”

From my point of view, Nandan is the best book magazine for children to shape their mind in right direction. The book magazine covers technological innovation, movies review, stories, cartoons, comic, paintings, quiz, and various types of news.

The magazine comes in the shape of Champak but it is beyond the Champak. Champak is dedicated to kids only in the format of comic and dreamy story but Nandan is dedicated to children in the format of news and stories.

Both books – Nandan and Champak are dedicated to kids but preferably for senior kids Nandan book magazine is perfect. Nandan is a magazine in the format of book so, it is known as book magazine also.

If you want to make your child involve in book then Nandan is right book to give right direction. There are many books magazine in the market but the book is perfect for children who want to innovate something. My choice goes with Nandan book magazine for a kid.

Accounting Books Review from Financial Management

Thursday, March 5, 2009

This is the review of financial statement analysis from the chapter of financial and accounting book. The book review let you know the concept of financial concept in details. Below is full review:

"Is financial statement analysis is only the analysis of facts, figures and statistics? I think financial statement analysis is proceeding from ratio analysis. So, here we should decide some objectives of the chapter.

Objectives of Financial Statement Analysis:

Meaning of Ratio Analysis

Steps in Ratio Analysis

Classification of Ratio

Merits and Demerits of Ratio Analysis

Compute the Different Ratios

At 1st we will discuss about ratio analysis. Normally, ratio is known as the relationship between two or more variable expressed in:

1. Percentage
2. Rate
3. Proportion

In another word we can say that ratio analysis is the important technique of financial analysis.

There are some steps also which involves in the ratio analysis:

a. Collection of information, which are relevant from the financial statements and then to calculate different ratios accordingly.
b. Comparison of computed ratios of the same organization or with the industry ratios.
c. Interpretation, drawing of inference and report-writing.

There are some formulas of Balance Sheet Ratio Analysis:

1. Current Ratio

Current Ratio = Current Assets/Current Liabilities

2. Quick Ratio

It is also known as liquid ratio or acid test ratio

Liquid Ratio = Quick or Liquid Assets/Liquid or Current Liabilities

= Current Assets – (Stock and Prepaid Expenses)/Current Liabilities-Bank Overdraft

3. Net working capital Ratio

Net working capital is used to measure company’s liquid position.

Net working capital Ratio = Net Working Capital/Net Assets

4. Proprietary Ratio

Proprietary Ratio = Shareholder’s Funds/Total Assets or Total Resources

5. Capital Gearing Ratio

Capital Gearing = Fixed Interest Bearing Funds/Equity Share capital

6. Debt Equity Ratio

Debt-Equity Ratio is calculated as follows:

Debt-Equity Ratio = External Equities/Internal Equities

Debt-Equity Ratio = Outsiders’ Funds/Shareholder’s Funds

As a long-term financial ratio it may be calculated as follows:

Debt-Equity Ratio = Total Long-Term Debts/Total Long-Term Funds

Debt-Equity Ratio = Total Long – Term Debts/Shareholders’ Funds

Here I want to share some important terms which will define the ratio:

Net profit ratio is used to measure the overall profitability and hence it is very useful to proprietors.

A higher working capital turnover ratio shows that there is low investment in working capital and vice-versa.

Ratio analysis is a very important and useful tool for financial analysis.

It helps the management accounting of business concern in evaluating its financial position and efficiency of performance."
