For large-caps, you can choose from Reliance Industries, Bharti Airtel, HUL, Britannia Industries, TCS, Infosys, Wipro, Maruti, M&M, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Kotak Bank.

For mid-caps, you can choose from Polycab India, Crompton Greaves Consumer, Havells and Marico.

K Ramanan: I invested around Rs 30 lakhs probably in the rising trend in the market and caught in the meltdown of small-/mid-caps during recent weeks.
