Love or Money

Here i will start with a small story.
“Once a small child asks his father to give him 1000 thousand rupees. His father asked the reason for such a big amount of money and he made some excuse. Then the child asked his father how much does his boss pays him for working one hour over there in his office. Then the father replied surprisingly 500 rupees per hour. Then the child took his father’s hand and took him to his room and gave the 1000 rupees which he took and asked his father to play with him for next two hours. And this brought tears in father’s eyes.”
Now you think, Can money buy everything you need in life? Can it provide you all sort of happiness? Can you buy everything with money?

People usually think, money is the most important thing in their life and they can buy everything with this, but they forgot, there are still many things that money can’t buy. I too agree money is a very powerful and we can buy our luxury with this. And if we ask someone to pick top five things important in your life for your survival, one of it will be definitely money, even it’s for me too.

Now you think, you are earning a lot of money and you are all alone, having no one around you, then for whom will you earn? Where will you go and spend the money? How will you be satisfied?
Then, if you are just busy in earning itself and even concerned about your own family and not spending time with them, will you be able to enjoy your life? Will you be able to have a life which a normal people must have? Will you be able to gather the love of your family?

No, I don’t think so. Love is nothing money can buy not even close. Money can buy you luxurious clothings, expensive handbags and enormous mansions but money can’t buy you happiness, it can’t buy you families and love. Money can buy you a house but not a home with a family. It can warm your body but not your heart, money can buy servants to serve you but not a family to care for you. Money can fill your bank account but not your life. Money is nothing comparing to love.

I know, on one side, money gives more opportunities in life as well as stability. Plus it allows you to give a comfortable life for family (and other loved ones) especially when they end up in a condition that leaves them too frail to fend for themselves. But if you mean choosing between having a lonely sad life with loads money or a life full of love without much money, I’d definitely choose love. By love I mean encompassing familial love, friendship and romantic. While I do know that if the financial situation is not good, it’ll be extremely difficult to live… I still cannot imagine wanting to live life in the 1st place without love. Money is seen as a source of convenience & sustenance to me, while love is utmost priority.

Now, I would like to add a poem and you decide the reality of your life and what actually is more important to you.

“With money you can buy a house, but not a home
With money you can buy a clock, but not time
With money you can buy a book, but not knowledge
With money you can buy blood, but not life
With money you can buy sex, but not love.

So what can you buy with money???”
