    Ya Viswa I really admire my husband but sometimes I feel he is too economic. Glad your father lead a simple life. Those days our parents knew the value of money since they could not earn much. My father had a hotel which he lost ,then we stayed with his uncle. When we all grew up he had to struggle. Only after my brothers started earning we were better but he did not live long. He died at the age of 63 and last days he had cancer. We always think of him because we are living comfortably

    Viji ma,
    you have explained in a beautiful way what is actually important for life. I just loved these words of yours
    "having a posh house, hifi job is nothing compared to leading a simple life with happiness and peace"
    This is reality. This is what we need, happiness and peace.
    A very beautiful snippet

    I am totally with you on this thinking. Because, when we finally feel (financially) secure about the future, life-long frugal habits stacked on top of weak joints (and other maladies) will not let us spend down our savings in enjoyable ways. And besides, in those days when I had springs in my step, a thousand rupees bought a lot more than it does now.
    Having a posh house, and a good job are good things to have in life. What is not good is harping about them all the time to everyone.

    Nice Snippet. Reminds me of that exotic language in a foreign land, where people understate their excitement and joy, and are naturally very cautious:
