A wife should always be few feet behind her husband. If he is an MA you should be a BA.If he is 5'4'tall you shouldn't be more than 5'3'tall. If he is earning five hundred rupees you should never earn more than four hundred and ninety nine rupees.That's the only rule to follow if you want a happy marriage...No partnership can ever be equal.It will always be unequal, but take care it is unequal in favor of the husband. If the scales tilt in your favor, God help you, both of you.

Oh, no said her mother sadly. You know nothing of the pettiness of women. When brothers agree to split a joint family they sometimes divide lakhs of rupees worth of property in a few minutes. But the tussle of their wives over the pots and pans in the common kitchen-that nearly causes bloodshed.
Indian street magic tends to be very gory, blood and guts. One trick is for a magician to take a knife and appear to cut his kid's head almost off. The magician then says to the crowd, 'Well I can continue to cut off my son's head or you can all give me some money.' Then he wanders around and takes 10 rupees from everyone and restores his son.
Whenever the sadness got too much, I would hire a rickshaw and go to the Upper Bazaar. Those little rickshaw trips to the market and back, shopping for lipsticks and imitation Gucci bags and wind-chimes and what not, are some of my happiest memories today. You know, one day, during one of those trips, I sold all my well-thumbed copies of 'Inside Outside' to the Tibetan guy who ran the old book store on Netaji Road for seventy rupees, six Tintins and a disarming smile. And all of a sudden, that moment, standing at the corner of Netaji road, I found out who I was.' ('Left from Dhakeshwari')
Cows provide approx 100 million tonnes of dry dung a year costing Rs 5000 crores which saves 50 million tonnes of firewood which again means that many trees saved and more environmental damage prevented. It is calculated that if these 73 million animals were to be replaced, we would need 7.3 million tractors at the cost of 2.5 lac each which would amount to an investment of 180,000 crores. In addition 2 crore, 37 lakh and 50 thousand tonnes of diesel which would mean another 57,000 crore rupees. This is how much we owe these animals, and this is what we stand to lose by killing them.
Tissa: Malin's notion is that once poverty is eradicated, these people can live happily in stately mansions like the richer folk. Chamari: That's what I think too. Tissa: They can't be reformed with money. Chamari: These people live like this because of their poverty. The way they live is what they have created out of their poverty. Tissa: No. Their lives are fashioned by the combination of ignorance and poverty. Do they heap up all that refuse in front of their doorways because of their poverty? The loose plank of that window can be fixed with a nail. But the people there don't do it and they keep gaping at it until the plank falls. Is that because of poverty? The moment a child or an adult falls ill, the first man they summon is the exorcist or a quack who practises both magic and traditional medicine. Chamari: They don't have the money to call in a doctor or an ayurvedic physician. Tissa: You don't need a lot of money to call in a good physician. These people spend even more on a quack than on a good physician. There are two competent native physicians within a quarter mile on this place. Instead, these people spend twenty to thirty rupees on exorcists to perform devil dancing. Chamari: A doctor is indifferent towards them when they go to fetch him. Tissa: No. That's not the reason. They have faith only in the exorcist and quacks.
