Patience and perseverance pays
Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Your thread has rekindled some memories of my childhood and I think my response will be incomplete if I do not mention that.
We were a lower middle class family and there was no question of any pocket money or any earning from any quarter except a little money from mother that also once in 2-3 months.
We were bringing vegetables from a shop where the shopkeeper used to give it in paper bags. We saw some people coming to his shop and giving packets of these bags in lieu of some money. One day I asked him how much it was. At that time, about 52 years back, it was hardly Rs 20 for 100 bags or so. I told him if I prepared it whether he will purchase from me. He answered that if it was good quality only then he would.
I was having summer vacations and I started doing that , though my parents were not happy as they thought it will distract me from studies.
I made some little money and purchased some misc items lying in my memory for a long time. It was a great pleasure to earn that small amount at that time.
So convey my congrats to Aditya.
Knowledge is power.
