While in school, I thought our headmaster Shri K K Nambiar was the highest paid person around. Later on, someone told the Indian President whose monthly salary was ₹10,000 was the highest paid person in India.
When I joined service in a pay scale of ₹110-3/7-131-4/11-175-5-180, I thought a salary of ₹200 p. m is all I can aspire.
Satisfaction keeps the goal posts changing.
I can remain contended if my father's prayers are granted on a day-to-day basis:
"Save us from poverty,
Save us from major ailments,
Let everything good happen,
Give us the wisdom to make right choices,
