I was as usual sitting and wondering and I realized something. Money is a very important factor in everybody’s life. Almost all of our existence revolves around money. While these thoughts ran through my mind, I was occupied with searching for injection, beds, and oxygen for people around me. Making calls, forwarding whatsapps, and hoping to be of some use to someone in need. I was able to talk to people who were just in my contact list and nowhere in my life. I was able to understand the situation at ground level. I could feel the panic people were going through. Later, I got in touch with people with whom I work with, who are in villages due to this lockdown, and what I felt was a complete turnaround. The panic there isn’t as much. They are able to walk and work freely, breathe fresh air and sleep without effort. There isn’t much money there but I could hear a sense of relief in their voice.
- Is money as important as one thinks?
- Why can’t money buy an injection?
- Who is more afraid, rich or poor?
- What is helping, relationships or money?
- What gives more happiness, helping someone or earning money?
