    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 as 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 interest rates started falling. Along with that, the prices of essential items for daily use started rising. Added to that are the health issues with growing age.

    I am just wondering, how come I was happy as Hazarpati and unhappy as Lakhapati?

    What has gone wrong?

    With the way things are programmed by experts, all economies plummeted that end up common citizen to buy a handful go tomarket wit large bag full of moneys. By the time one reaches the market the estimated price is diubled! This is horromonics!

    For those who are wholly dependent on interest income, it is becoming difficult.

    That was I guess after World War II. In Germany, they went with a bagful of Maks and returned with a fistful of grains.
    Things have not reached that pass but things to worry about.
