You write women of my generation are envied for the liberty - financial and otherwise I do not think so ! Unless you have experienced something or perhaps crave for something beyond your reach, you will never miss it ! We were very happy & contented within given parametres! I do not think, I ever felt the necessity for financial freedom. It was never - my money, your money - but always our money ! We had the confidence that liberty will never be taken for granted or misused. Ofcourse, there are likely to be exceptions, as for every rule ! Love, Chithra.
