invest....?



Its been almost two years since I started working fulltime
Believe it or not, my first job was Teaching…I was an English teacher..
I taught English to MBA aspirants…and since it was a contract job, I got paid by the hour and did not worry at all about paying taxes…I didn’t make that much..

But now I am a Techie and will have to keep aside some Moolah to feed the government unless…

INVEST….

Speaking about investment…An Insurance Agent came and met me the other day…He wanted to make my future secure,,,gift my kids( I don’t have them yet…im not even married…..!) a wonderful future..He asked me whether I had already fallen prey to another investment banker or Insurance militant….hell no..
…I thought for a while ,,mentally assessing my position
my till date investment included….

5 Black jockeys..
5 White Banyans (Tantex to be precise…Mr Thomson)
2 Jeans..
A couple of shirts and Tees..
Food…
Intoxication….
Movies…
Books…

No…
No Loans
No shares
No savings certificate
No Insurance policies
No Mutual Funds..

Yes..
Credit Card..( 3to be precise)
Pending Credit Statement… on two of them
A kaali Salary account..

‘Kannan…
I got this excellent plan for you, very small premium…very high returns…’
Just 18670 per year and you’ll get post retirement income of 25 Lakhs…2.5 Million Rupeess…
This is just the right time to invest..”

Everything was excellent…
The plan..
The agent..
The time…
Except my bank balance…

But I felt secure…
Boastmaster Miser owed me 40 Rupees..
ML owed me 50 Rupees…
I would get 90 rupees any minute….


I can demand it, ask politely or even beg for it…
And if they did not give it to me still….I can always kidnap one of them and ask the other for a Ransom
Or maybe I can kill them both and get everything…..
life holds immense possibilities….
And I can always ask Shi.. for anything…

‘This policy is excellent…..”

Deaf ears…I walked through him…arrogance personified..
