Really, Some people are hypocritesThe day before yesterday a close relative of mine visited our home. He is a close friend of my elder brother as well. He was talking about abundant expenditure on marriage functions. He was opposing show off of wealth. He opined that rich people spend a lot of money to show their status to people that so much amount they spent on their daughter's marriage. They hire the service of catering agencies. They take marriage hall on rent for a day or two etc. He kept on speaking on this topic for hours and I was listening to him quietly. I stopped myself from reminding him that a few years ago he married his daughter and he spent Rs 1.60 lakh on rent of a marriage hall only, more than Rs 7 lakhs he spent on all this external show off. More or less 40 lakhs he spent on his daughter's marriage. Nevertheless, he was lecturing on show off of wealth and questioning why people do show off.
This is sheer hypocrisy. I strongly dislike hypocrites. He is an elderly person so I did not interfere and kept quiet.
Hypocrisy is the worst kind of habit for some people. They have several faces. They masquerade as a different person from what they are, and they assume that they are right. Perhaps these people think that the whole world is stupid and they don't recognize them at all. People know them very well and do not unnecessarily butt in their matter because if they are exposed they will feel bad. But for the sake of respect of their age or avoiding unnecessary clash people keep silent and take all other people for granted.
