Whatever I could have now is only because of my prudent habits of spending and prudent saving. I followed the habit of prioritizing expenses, keeping them always within the income and ensuring that I save at least a few rupees every month. I used to have a god financial discipline. Even now I follow those well cultivated habits.
I have happily accepted the one rupee and two rupees of cash credits from ISC. I never despised money and treated one rupee coin, ten rupee note or five hundred rupee note with equal respect.
One rupee was able to fetch us a lot of things many years earlier. I had experience of the same in my childhood. But money was a rare commodity for us then.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Knowledge is power.
Money teaches its own value to everyone. No matter how much one has he/she still aspire more which is not a bad thing, with money comes the idea of progress and desire. When one becomes too much complacent and don't think about the growth he.s/she does not value money much.

I have seen people who count coins and keep them carefully so that they can use them when a need comes. I remember my childhood days, my father used to ask me the details of expenditure for a rupee he had given when I was going out. I have to return him the remaining change after telling him the expenditure. So I know the value of money and I never keep it carelessly.
But these days some young people who are getting good money from their parents are careless and they never keep a track of their expenses and income also.
