In today’s world we find two types of people. One is wealthy people who don’t care of money. They spend money without any hesitation. Second is Poor people who value money they think thrice before spending money.
So which one you are do you value money? Well let me ask you simple question. Imagine if you have 10 rupee what you will do? Well you must be thinking what type of question it is and what is value of 10 rupee today? Well if someone had asked this question before 70-80 years than answer could be I will purchase movie ticket or purchase some household or grocery by 10 Rupee but today you can purchase hardly anything by 10 Rupee.
Well you may be wrong. Today also 10 rupee is valuable for poor part of India. This story is inspired by Crime Patrol 10 out of 100 episode where it is shown that one child committed suicide because of 10 Rupee.
