Money In Mess!

What is money? Yes money is a capacity to earn whatever we want in the mundane world. ‘Money is everything’, ‘Money is nothing’ all have say in our life. ‘Money is everything’ one day questioned ‘Money is nothing’,” Why I am invalid to you? I have a visible capacity and if you see the Oxfam report on India will be overwhelmed that how I have made a prestigious concentration of wealth to ‘rich people’?” ‘Money is nothing’ replied, “My capacity is not visible like you. I will never say that I have the capacity to knock you down rather I have capacity to make you feel to be knocked down.” 
The tête-à-tête is unending and always leaves us in dichotomy when the journey of life takes a turtle turn and Money inspite of having its capacity fail to restore confidence and the call of ‘Money is nothing’ push us to knock the door of an invisible power, we call almighty.

Money as everything has made the civilisation a rudimentary place of an expensive exploitation and massive disparity. When the ‘Forbes list’ of rich people shines on the board of civilisation’s growth, the untold story of poverty runs miles with bare foot on the thorns of scarcities.
As per World Bank estimate 40 million to 60 million people will be imprisoned by extreme poverty in 2020, compared to 2019, depending on the likely shock economies will face. The covid-19 crisis very irksomely started to dismantle the thread of communication and making it hard to reach them who live in fragile countries, and remote areas. Money has made it to scintillating Forbes list but failed to attain poverty – an irony. 
 When money has successfully made the sanctum of legislators fully masked with highest most amenities, then ‘Money is nothing’ is chanting satirically migrants’ running on roads. When policy is the need of the hour then money suggests reforms. When survival is under threat then money calls for production. When people who will work to produce is in distress then money speak for marketing its’ produce. When survival is the key concern Money gives message of 'Atmanirbhar Bharat'. Is it confirming the claim of ‘Money is nothing’? The decision is upto you who are enjoying the music of monopoly concentration in the lavish space of relief. But we the so called middle class people in the society who are still carrying the values of life will pray for the people who are in extreme poverty, running on roads to heave a sigh of relief.
