THE SLOW POISON SURE HAD ITS FIRM ROOTS!
  • “This is the sacred duty I have taken up in my life. Thru' this work, a great service is done to the humanity. God has truly given me this golden opportunity in my life. I' ll do my best here. Later in my life I sure have to answer the Almighty on this take care!”
Was the proud proclamation of the then man of thirties..
  • “These monies involved in the task are the sacred ones. It is said that in all these instances, one is a Trusty and one should work as a Manager to the Trust. I’ll maintain all the details of spending towards development. The records truly speak at any time!” 
Was his assertion at forties..
  • “Yes! it looks, spending these monies may not be that much advisable. But how about the chances of giving better life to those involved? The development is at crucial stage. Let me spend in all directions. One or two may go waste but it's still worth the trial. That’s where the true development lies!” 
Was the talk in his fifties..
  • “People may talk.. But to do this work, I know how much we have to struggle. Some times, my own monies are spent away because there is no point in waiting. Plus or minus, the welfare activities should go on forever. That’s the aim!” 
Was his defensive attitude in late fifties..
  • “I'm retired. I said, my task is over and the required is done. But you know.. They expect me to look after some of special tasks myself only. Actually, I've no energies in that direction. Since I was asked, I can’t say ‘NO..'
  • I just do the works from now onwards for a reduced salary. That's very much needed at this stage for my living as I don't have regular income from now onwards. More than that, I leave everything.. Others too can easily handle all these works well!”
Was the final soft talk of the fully grey haired man at the back of a broad smile!

Yes.. Some of the welfare activities were truly done.. The beneficiaries, the young adults of twenties were well placed in their life and society.. Really, well done..

But when carefully looked at the development taken place and the total cost of development incurred over all those years, there was a mismatch and the cost appeared to be more even though all that was justified towards the monies forcibly spent during the struggle and chance taking..

And the big figures in the accounts of the retired man were discretely smiling behind all that justification!
