Statuary warning: Cigarette/Beedi Smoking is injurious to pocket and this definitely is not finance related post!
Earning money and Making money any difference??? Don’t tell me its grammatically incorrect, who cares about grammar in my blog anyways!!! As per my own “Oxford” English vocab, “Earning” is something a poor soul does in usual lawful ways where as “Making Money” is something what you will find out after you finish reading this blog.
Folks, to explain this “Making Money” Phenomenon, I have created “Mr. Subrahmani”(My Fictional Hero), sorry name is spelt like this “Mr. SubrahMONEY”. And here is his chronicle.
Let’s go back to 80’s, One evening our SubrahMONEY and his Brother in law(BIL) were in a theater watching a movie. SubrahMONEY was feeling very restless; 3hrs wasting without making money was very disturbing. Just then an idea struck, he informed BIL that he will be back in 10min, unaware of what was happening BIL continued to watch the movie. Within no time SubrahMONEY comes back to his seat and continues to enjoy the movie. As the movie progressed there came the classic “Cigarette Song”, just in case you don’t know these legends of Indian cinema, these are most unwanted, totally untimely, not so catchy song all of a sudden in the movie which are typical “Smoke” break for the audience who want to refill some fresh nicotine in to their blood without missing out on story line.
Now as this Cigarette song came along, BIL got up for a puff and invited SubrahMONEY, being a very nice person that he is, he said “Arrey, why do you want to go out? I have a Beedi right here with me, you can smoke it here and you should really not miss the movie now”. Impressed by such a good gesture our innocent BIL settled down in his seat enjoying the “Jumjum thanana Jumjum thanana” Cigarette song and exhaled all the smoke.
In a jiffy there stood 2 policemen, holding BIL by his collar and asking him how he could smoke in theater. They instantly asked him to come to police station with them or to pay 150rs fine (ufff 150rs in 80’s was like 1000s). On seeing terrified BIL, our hero SubrahMONEY came in to picture, he asked BIL to give only 50rs to him so that he will go out of the hall and then convince them. Handing over 50rs, BIL settled in his seat praying that he will be forgiven at rupees 50.
SubrahMONEY comes out of the hall very irritated, he gives 10rs each and scolds “When did you both join? I am seeing for the first time! Where is our Bujangram? He was very good, every time I fixed someone in this case Bujangram asked nothing less than 250rs!!! You guys should get properly trained before coming on field duty, I will give only 10 this time!”
After settling the case SubrahMONEY comes back to seat and tells his BIL that he could convince them only for 100 and so he had to pay 50 more to send them off. On hearing this, BIL with full respect thanked our SubrahMONEY for saving him and gave back the balance 50rs!
