Far too much energy has been depleted in condemning how the rich and the famous spend their #money (legally inherited and/or legally earned) on weddings. In one straight piece @monikahalan makes mincemeat out of them – and forces an introspection…
How many of those calling such high-decibel weddings “vulgar” opt for a simple registered wedding for their children, asks @monikahalan – scathing observation on #money!
Rather than condemning those who spend their earned/inherited #money, we need to look at how taxpayers’ money is spent on the personal upkeep of ‘public servants’ in acres-large bungalows in prime locations, argues @monikahalan
[We don’t because so few of us pay income tax.]
With simple number-crunching @monikahalan show how it is the urban mass affluent – and not the rich and famous – who is indulging in excessive wedding spends and spectacles
Over the past seven decades, India has depleted its moral energies embracing poverty and shunning #money. This embrace has been carefully crafted by the elite to keep India poor and feed off its poverty. It is now time to celebrate wealth – and the wealthy.
A final word from Sri Aurobindo: “You must neither turn with an ascetic shrinking from the #money power, the means it gives and the objects it brings, nor cherish a rajasic attachment to them or a spirit of enslaving self-indulgence in their gratifications.”
