I first created my portfolio in last week of November 2017 and held on to it for almost a month and saw no change. I decided to diversify my portfolio and changed it after Gujarat elections in 2017 December.

Why Do I Have So Many Companies ?
If you look at the portfolio of some other investors, they only hold 5-6 (or max 8-10) companies. It is difficult for a beginner to choose few companies which can guarantee returns. And losses are obviously hard to deal with. So you have to diversify your portfolio and make sure that overall you have more gainers than losers.
Over the course of 2018, I might add some more companies or remove some from my portfolio.
