A few months back..
I was clueless about how to make my child prepare for a debate. The topic was ‘Money is important’. He has to speak for the motion. And when I first heard about it, I asked him if he could speak against the motion. When I, myself not agree with it, how can I prepare the write – up for it. He immediately replied that it cannot be changed now. We have no option to choose from. The teacher decides and you have to write. He himself started giving me ideas on what could we write about it. Then, I searched, read googled, about the topic, half heartedly. I could not convince myself. I had never felt the money is really that much important. Its undebatable topic, until today….
People seek favour. Its ok. Perfect. But when asked same thing in return, they respond as if I am selfish. I didn’t go to them. They are doing business so they have official right to be selfish. They will do it, the return of favour they asked, only for money. Here’s the story….
Someone asked my child’s papers, which are, of course not much important to me as he will be going to next class. I can give them happily but when the person who asked for it, runs an institution of enrichment classes for children, I tried my luck asking for the sheets from her classes, then, I was told that it comes with the price tag. And I got that humiliating feel that I cannot afford that. Now, this comes from the common friend, so it hurts more. So,Money Matters!
I know that I’m still going to help as selfish word does not suit me. But the incident has incited me to reconsider my beliefs about some things and some people. Thank you God!!
