Cut Piece

We are reluctant to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ to servants or underlings at work, as though we were being asked to hand over large sums to them. We are similarly loath to praise, but we are quick to condemn.

My belief in a literal afterlife has been somewhat tenuous at best, so I believe in living life to the hilt in the here and now. I feel that as long as I deliberately do not harm others, I should explore life as fully as possible while I am fit enough to enjoy it.

As my father used to say: “Paisa hat ka mail hai; ata hai or jata hai.” (“Money is like dirt on the hands; it comes and goes.”). And so it has been with me. Good friends, a loving and supportive family and good memories are far more valuable than large bank accounts. And on all three counts, I have been blessed.
