The richer ; The poorerWe all have a desire for a materialistically sound life having all the facilities and luxuries a person could even imagine. Since the day an infant is born his parents start thinking about how to give comfort to their child. They start saving pennies so that they can bring good quality toys, a beautiful cradle, a high- tech tricycle, dancing dolls which changes to a better smart phone, an air conditioned room, a gaming laptop when the child grows.
The child even then thinks if he had been born in a family with a silver spoon in his mouth would be better for him. A simple inference is he still demands.
We come across many rich people and many richer business people in our everyday life. Not only rich but we encounter many poor people as well in our day to day lives including vegetable vendors, stationary shopkeepers,local painters, street electricians and many others.
If we notice their gesture and their hearts we find that the poor people may understand your budget and agree to work accordingly, they may even lower their charges as per your request but this doesn't happen with the rich class business people. Are they devoid of feelings when they reach that level or their sophistication doesn't allow them to do so?
A very normal example of this is
A local vegetable vendor may give you some extra coriander leaves and green chillies without being asked on her own, a local general store holder gives you a new calendar if you are a regular customer every year, a stationary bookkeeper gifts you a diary every new year, a local beautician goes for free threading after facial without being told to but a supermarket owner doesn't reduces even a 0.50 rupee amount rather rounds it of to rupee 1. A showroom owner gives the dresses in the written MRP. A salon beautician charges more than her works. What to talk of a free gift which we never expect these high profile business people charge sometimes more than MRP saying gst wasn't added in MRP..
Is it lust or desire or some evil feeling inside which is making the rich people poor in thoughts and actions?
Are they really rich ?
Not in terms of money but in terms of human understanding and human qualities. Are they really rich?
Why the richer are getting poorer day by day?
