Bhupendra Kumar: I am a cancer patient with third stage. I have small income and can save only 25000/- per month. I have a child four year old. I want to invest in stock market. So that i can give some financial support to my only child. Please suggest me one or two options for four to five years horizon. Please help me. Hope u reply me soon. 

Ajit Mishra: We would not recommend putting all your savings in the stock market. As much as it is rewarding, it has risks associated with it as well.

Allocate a portion of it in blue-chip companies like Reliance Industries, Britannia Industries, Bharti Airtel, M&M, HDFC Bank, TCS, ICICI Bank. One can also look at Nifty ETF as well.
