THE OTHER SIDE OF SOPHISTICATION!

The man went for shopping with his family..

"We are going on a month long vacation abroad. We need clothes of top brands for the family for travel. There'll be many functions we have to attend, many invitations are there for us and special personalities would be meeting us during our trip. None should feel that we look shabby.. Please show us the best available in your shop!"

In no time the costliest brands were displayed in front of the members, they selected some of the best ones out of that and the lady at the desk packed and handed over the items with a smile.

When they came out, the driver said, 


"Sir, the car developed a problem.. I'll call a taxi for you.. I'll bring the car after the repair!"

Soon the family hired a taxi on bargain and the driver asked a little extra for the trip. The man flatly refused and paid exactly what he was supposed to pay to the point of drop.

Later in a small home, the family was discussing and the man was saying, 

"I wanted to earn a little extra in every trip so that with the pooled up money I can buy mom a good sweater and a woolen blanket. But today, one customer refused to pay me that extra other than the exact.. May be mom has to wait for some more days in this winter before I pool up..

  • Hope tomorrow would be a better day for us!"
The spouse was saying, 

"There was a family to our shop, I showed them a lot of material and thus helped in getting a big order for my owner.. I expected my owner to pay some extra tips for me so that for the coming academic year we can pool up that for the cost of school uniforms for our 2 boys.. But by bad luck, my owner paid me the normal min tips only..

  • Hope tomorrow would be a better day for us!" 
An adolescent boy was asking his dad in the neighborhood,

"Dad! There's Saying here.. 'The nakedness of the world can be clad with the trimmings of the rich!' What exactly is the meaning of this?"

  2. awesome one, mind blowing, the way you have made a beautiful summation of three different incidents is really very creative, a very important side of our society you have depicted and also the struggles, the sufferings and the human psychology.

  4. I really liked the way you put the two perspectives of the story one after the other and the analysis of both was seen through the eyes of the boy who still knows not the ways of the world....Wonderful story Sir...!
