The Nature of the wealth……

         We can say that most of the questions are of the Money or for the money in the World. Whether it has been created or creating. I think it’s always having questions.. and creating more questions.. Depends on person.. Though everyone is beggar in front of god, but the way or the attitude towards god has differences.

       The value of Money has decreased human-values.Not totally, but we can say somehow. In this time of pandemic during lockdown, we went to a market to buy some groceries. I was packed into my car and my wife went to the store. The poor lady with the child came close to our car-window and was begging closely. She knew that at this time we all should maintain social distancing but She didn’t follow that knowingly and by that we may be forced to give them rupees.. She was asking to have rupees to buy one biscuit packet.. Honestly, I refused to give rupees because I  know that two social groups serve food to needy people at their risk and that lady and her family is one of them. After sometime she went to the other car and the other man gave her 10 rupees. She acted like she was going to buy biscuit packets in front of that man. That man left from there and the lady sat without buying anything from the store. She smiled at me for how she fooled that other man! I was confused about what she was smiling at me ?!!   Thus, many people usually fool the other people by acquiring more  rupees than actual cost. Those who do scams for earning, who cheat someone to earn and many others those earning have dissatisfaction  lives . One dishonest billionaire who comes out from the expensive car who puts the foot directly on the footpath is poor in front of that man, who is earning on that footpath by realising true notes of music.

One day, I went to meet my friend who is living in my town.During some talks I came to know that there was a funeral in his last day. It was strange when I heard the sound of quarrelling from that house, when mother died and son shouting at his father to get the   ornaments of his mother… !! How ashamed… ??!! Why don’t’ feel ashamed of themselves.?!  .               

How the way the society that we called low to high where those some has a poison called wealth circling in the minds. I am getting disappointed when I see one son only connect to his father for the Legacy, the parents who compare their children to others’ for earning an extra money, brother who earns little less than another one in a joint family has less respected life,  one girl or boy only marry for the wealth! And everyone who trampled their relations by earnings. It doesn’t mean that the money is not important to live but it is one pillar to roll our life with sufficient applications.

       The wealth that is earned or gained by the wrong ways never gives happiness. It seems like a hue of affluence but it is actually the rust on wealth…

Thank you so much..
