Giving ones best - gets a pick of the best


Indian currency notes are the most dirtiest, manhandled, mishandled, licked, picked,folded, written upon ,and  lies idle, amongst the money paper across the world.

It was one of those bus rides for a meeting and back home.

i had taken a ticket from the conductor of a bus, paying the best of my paper money for the fare, the conductor gave me back my change and i noticed one 10 rupee note was torn , i politely asked the conductor for an exchange, for which he said that note is valid, i agreed it validity,but no one would accept that torn one from me, and i would have to hide it to move it away from me

He mumbled that folks think that fresh crisp notes are genuine, and with that he opened his money bag and pulled out a wad of 10 rupee notes and thrust it at me , take a pick of what u like,i picked one.

He sure must have been hurt bad, to do that.

These days i have been carrying a wad of fresh crisp 10 rupee notes.. the people who get it from me give me an astonished look for parting with such a note without much empathy!!

Shazia what u r doing is a novel way to see the reaction in others.

i am doing it meditatively these days, when i have to give a note i give the best of what i have.
