Today morning a dead body passed from the front of our house...my hubby was reading news-paper and i as usual with my morning tea, on computers...he told me that the dead body is of the lady....he knows from a political background family..then he told me all story about her..and it was so heart shaking..she was on bed from many years...about 4 years..her kidneys had failed and was on dialysis ....earlier the family was well off...but later conditions worsened and the husband of this lady had no other option to contest elections and win it any cost, as there were financial problems and no means of earning was left..as they were from politics he found it easy to become the member of corporation of his area....during the canvassing this lady moved on wheel chair..for getting votes for his husband...her condition was so bad...still she did it..her husband won and the day he was to take oath...mean yesterday...she passed away....what the cruelty of fate or luck...i just asked my hubby that was it not inhuman of his husband to USE her in such condition for votes...my hubby answered..what could he do, they had children, problems were there due to lack of money, her medication also needed money..so he did it...thinking of the women..she did whatever she could, and she was almost right..what about the man?? Was it cruel of him or do you think he too was right as per the conditions and situations...may be anything..Money is very powerful..don't u agree..it makes u dance like a puppet ....

I agree that Money is powerful and influential. In a sense that it can make or destroy one's life. It can turn good citizens to become bad one. It can make your life good or bad. It can build good relationships for family who do not any argue about money, and also can destroy good relationship among persons because of greediness and others due to effect of poverty. He is cruel if his intention to use his wife for personal greediness, but let us still give the benefit of the doubt, we do not really his behind reasons from the actions seen. In that situation, that is what money can do for a person and what money cannot buy a person for a person. He may be wealthy but he loosing his wife is more than what pain can give and money cannot bring back the life of his wife. He bartered his wife for wealth and power but his conscience will never stop him until he remorse for what he had done , if it was really a bad intention.

At times...perhaps most of the times in the present contexts one is forced to carry the conviction that money is absolutely everything !
