Apna Sapna Money Money ?!?

Do you love the smell of money? ;-)

Those bits of paper(imagine- green :-P) which hold so much value…Those bits of paper that make people’s life and break people’s life. Once a person is bitten by the bug of earning money, he puts everything else he has in his life at stake for earning it.

Greed. Hmph. It’s a diseased state, feeling greedy. You just want more and more……and more….little more…..I’m not done yet….and SOME more. The thirst never quenches.  NEVER! ;-) Make money your God and it will plague you like the devil!

Unfortunately, people don’t realize that having money is not everything in life. Yes, it can buy you almost everything (materialistic) and well if that’s what matters to you, then congratulations! You hit the jackpot! Bingo! LOL!

Okay, here’s a question for you money-minded people!
“If money really grew on trees ;-) How many saplings would you plant??” ;-)
As many as you can? :-P :-P
Money begets money!!!

Money can buy you a house, but not a home.
Money can buy you a bed, but not sleep.
Money can buy you a clock, but not time.
Money can buy you a book, but not knowledge.
Money can buy you a position, but not respect.
Money can buy you medicine, but not health.
Money can buy you blood, but not life.
Money can buy you sex, but not love.

So, if the former is what matters to you then money is really gonna be the driving force of your life! (Sheesh :-/) And if the latter is what matters, then “Hey! We are sailing on the same boat!” ;-)

There are people who have money and people who are rich.- Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel

Here, I’m reminded of this dialogue from a Hindi film, “Mere paas paisa hai, bunglow hai, gaadi hai. Tumhaare paas kya hai?”. “Mere paas Maa hai!!!” :-D

Just think about it, your dad or mom or both have to work and slog for a month to earn that salary and what you do is just blow it up in a minute. For one, I hate the people who “use” their parents’ as ATM machines/ People who remember parents when they run outta money! Disgusting! And I personally know many who do that. You might understand that what it takes is- 30 days in office- 9 to 6 everyday- of hard work- overtime- travelling to and fro to that place by shitty transportation- for getting that sum at the beginning of the next month. Phew!

On the other hand, I hate people who are misers as much as I hate people who are extravagant! C’mon! Can’t you strike a balance?!! :-O No wonder it is said- The World- Ingredients: Mostly idiots! :-P Well it is also said that the only way not to think about money is to have a great deal of it! :-P

Who is rich? He that is content. Who is that? Nobody.- Benjamin Franklin 

Also, as it is important to have sufficient money, what is also important is to make sure that you earn money by fair means.

So ask yourself this question, "What really matters, money or ......??" ;-) Coz the more you chase money, the harder it is to catch it!

  2. Good post:)Money can't buy inner peace and happiness,but don't you think it's always nice to cry on a mercedes than to cry on a bicycle;).On a serious note this post will act as an eye-opener for all money-minded fools :P:P...

  3. Money is a necessary evil that was created my mankind to simplify life but somehow now turns up as the root of all conflict, everything that is dirty has in its birthplace- money... and the worse thing about it is that u can never have enough of it, u always seem to have 'not enough' of it... can't stop me from wondering that wasn't life much simpler when our ancestors had "Barter System" in place

  4. Couldn't agree less. Money gives happiness until it is exactly sufficient to live a fairly comfortable life. Beyond that line, it only becomes a worry. Nice write up :)

  5. The greedy love for money is the root of all evil.
