Month: January 2012
I had a good friend, who was not responding to my calls for a long time. Earlier, we used to talk daily on all matters. I was able to reach him finally and he talked to me for a few minutes.
He said everything was OK with him, but the tone and reply did not sound so. I wish him well.
Another friend of mine was also missing from regular contacts. I was worried about him, and last week I met him at a function.
He hugged me and apologised for not keeping in touch. I asked him where he was all this time. He replied, “I am a free man now.”
I got more anxious and asked him what happened!
He continued, “I have closed all my credit cards. They were killing me day and night. Somehow, I sold off whatever I could and closed them. Now, I have peace of mind.”
I could feel it from the expression on his face.
Yes, he’s one who could come out of the clutches of plastic money that has destroyed several lives.
I wish others too manage to follow in his footsteps.
