Dad’s friend was in need of funds for celebrating handicapped daughter’s marriage he helped him from his hard earned savings. In 1950s ₹5k was a huge amount. Myyounger sister and i were studying in school. A month or two later my dad lost his job on account of retrenchment as new management diwnsized the staff. Dad till then was not bothered about that ₹5k that he had given to his friend. When he had lost job he approached him to return the money. His friend and his family & son in law flatly refused that lead to altercations. I was a spectator. Few years passed by. It was a Sunday. Dad’s friend’s daughter with her hubby called on us with their infant baby. Apologising for their parents behaviour, she handed dad the amount ₹5k and prostrated in front along with her husband. She said “uncle i believe in karma. If I don’t repay the amount, it will affect me and my child. So please receive the amount.” Dad looked at my mom. Mom looked at her and the baby without any gold on their person . She said to the young mother- “keep the amount as our gift to your infant daughter”.
