No money, No honey !!!

Filed under: Life — Abhinav Sahai @ 4:50 pm

It’s the final semester and for the first time I have felt this way. For the first time I am left with no money! Yeah, no money in my pockets, no money to be borrowed and no money in my bank account. Yeah that’s a fact as well, not many know it but though I have borrowed a lot of times but its never been that I am nil in the reserve(my ATM).

I borrowed 200 bucks yesterday, that too with much difficulty, and it’s all gone thanks to my eye infection. I have been a regular customer to the sector market in these 4 years and for the first time I returned with just a cup of tea in my stomach. Gurpreet was getting an egg roll packed for Shishir and I was………… looking. Friends coming in at the shop and eating away but all me and Gurpreet did was…… STARE.

It’s never been that I have been so helpless. Not getting to eat, no money for medicine, not even for soap and hair-oil. I guess my worst nightmares are coming alive. My system not working, no money, no food, I don’t know what’s coming next.

Now I understand why India is poor, why the poor never get rich and why they fall ill, or die because of petty illnesses. I know what poorness is now, and how 70% of our country, which is still below the poverty line lives. I promise to do something for them once I am capable of doing but at the moment I feel helping my selves.

Having spent so much already in this semester I can’t ask papa for more cash, especially at a time when he’s angry with me. Hope to find some way out of this soon. Amen.
