People have a bad habbit of borrowing books and things and not returning them. I had experienced this many times. We have Valmiki Ramayan in parts consisting the full set. One of our friend's mother had taken the Bala Kandam and she had not returned it. Our friend got transfered to Bombay and so we lost the book. Nowadays we are not getting the copy. Neighbours will come and take pliers, screw driver and other materials, but won't return them after the job was finished. My neighbour had brrowed our thoradu (bamboo containing the sickle) to pluck guavas four days back, but not yet returned it. Now we have to go and get it when we need it. Could you believe it? When we came here newly,our front house lady sent her son telling him to get our flower vase with flowers for she was having a birthday party in the evening. Before We left Jamshedpur one lady borrowed our spring balance and had not returned it. Even then we had not learned a lesson. Still we had not stopped of lending things!
