First Salary..

'You have to offer the entire first salary to the tirupathi venkateshwara temple' his mother told him.

Tomorrow would be the day of the first salary of the first job. He had been waiting for this.The first time he would have money in his hands which he could spend in any way he wanted. He was never given any pocket money in school or college days, not that he complained anyway. For, he would spend most of his free time in the lab or library.

He had carefully planned what he would do- not buy sarees or gold bangles for his mother, like people usually do, but a washing machine and a vaccum cleaner , so that the daily chores would not leave her tired by the end of the day. And a nice pair of shoes for his father. The ones he was using now were not comfortable. Besides they were nearly a year old.And of course, two new shirts.

He would not listen to his mother. What was the point in offering his salary to the God who was already the world's richest? And were'nt parents considered to be the first gods?

      In matters of faith, nothing can be classified as right or wrong. It's anybody's guess how many Gods the mother and the lad in question would have prayed so that the day will dawn with the scent of the first salary. But now funnily, the God gets termed as the "richest". Is it "reasoning of convenience"?

      Yes Shankar, I agree with you that Miss.Roopa has a sense of convenience. She is smart enough and has a "lot of reasoning of convenience". She might destroy a nation for her convenience and she has a reasoning to support herself.
      But she would be too late to realise that her smartness is caught by the world.
