MONEY CAN BUY EVERYTHING EXCEPT HAPPINESS-WRONG My bank informed me that I will be poorer by almost 30% as calculated on the basis of interest income two years back and now on my fixed deposits with them. As far I am concerned, forget about happiness I can not buy most of the things I need. In the early days, I was a Hazarpati (earning in thousands) and was happy because I was in a position to buy most of the things I needed. Added to that I could save some and by the time I retired in 2003, I became a Lakhpati, if not Crorepati. Now I was totally dependent on the interest I was earning on my retirement fund, as I worked in the private sector. Initially, it looked okay till 2014. Then something happened and the interests rates started falling. Along with that, the prices of essential items of daily use started rising. Added to that are the health issues with growing age. I am just wondering, how come I was happy with Hazarpati and unhappy with Lakhapati. What has gone wrong?
