Ans: Congratulations on your diligent savings and investment journey! Your detailed financial portfolio reflects years of disciplined planning and prudent decision-making. It's impressive how you've diversified across various asset classes, including mutual funds, NSC, real estate, and precious metals.

Regarding your plan to start a small food outlet business, it's essential to assess your financial situation and risk appetite carefully. While your investments provide a strong financial cushion, transitioning to entrepreneurship requires thorough consideration of cash flow requirements, business risks, and potential returns.

Given your history of hard work and dedication, pursuing your entrepreneurial dream seems feasible. However, ensure you have a robust business plan in place, including financial projections and contingency measures. Additionally, consider consulting with a business advisor or mentor to validate your business idea and strategy.

Regarding your investments, your portfolio appears well-diversified, but it's always prudent to periodically review and rebalance based on changing market conditions and personal goals. Consider consulting with a Certified Financial Planner to ensure your investment strategy aligns with your long-term objectives, including retirement planning and your son's education.

Remember, entrepreneurship entails both opportunities and challenges, so proceed with careful planning and realistic expectations. Your determination and financial discipline will likely serve you well in this new endeavor. Wishing you success in your entrepreneurial journey!
