Money Money Money.......................

Today’s issue is about money. The main thing is those who are money minded they don’t value any other person’s money. For many people I have seen money is so important that they forget to spend time with their loved ones for whom the money is made. People get so involved with money that their value system gets manipulated according to that.
My classmates they were so money minded that they never used to spend anything on others. There was one friend of mine who used to come with me to school. So after class when we used to buy some ice cream (Kulfi)>. One day I had forgotten to take money and so she gave me 5 rupees for the ice cream and soon told me to return it tomorrow. I did not feel like eating that ice cream. I returned her the money at that time only. I don’t say that people shouldn’t value money but I say why take other peoples money and not return it and when their money is taken they keep asking. Some of my classmates keet asking for 2 rupees also.
They never made any phone calls only missed calls. When India won the T-20 World Cup they congratulated each other by giving missed calls. They tell others to call as otherwise they have to spend money.
Ah! Such a money minded mentality.

Now a days, people are like that, we can't blame them. Well, its like those who have eyes doesn't know the value of it until we lose them. Who has money today has value and respect and almost everything right? Some are afraid to spend it 'coz they were born and brought up that way. And the second one about people asking their money back. Well, in that case, my opinion is that, it doesn't matter whether it's 1Rs or 2Rs, if you've promised to return then you should return it and in time. why are we allowing them to ask? we've to give it back anyway right? And I know some people who borrows and never returns and when we ever have to borrow from them, then they'll forget they borrowed from us and'll keep on asking for their money 'coz they need it and'll say that our money they'll give some other day.

Money rules! Most people r forgetting those little happiness around them and spending most of their life working working working. Its depressing! Money doesn't give you all the joy but people always assay everything by money. And it overtakes all the mankind. A good post!

"For the love of money is the root of all evil" Timothy 6:10

Its the love of money and not money which causes all the evil.

There is a proverb which says "Money is a good servant, but a bad master". If a person's motives and deeds are targeted towards money it is not good. If you put trust on money; it will surely fail you..

Sadly thats what we see around us :(
