Money is very casual nowadays. It changes hands without causing any cacophony of questions or cadence in voices. Cabal politicians do it under the desk. Other people cadge our cash for just a visit to the cafeteria and we lend it to them on many occasions without realizing they might just be cheating us. We cannot always put a cairn to mark the boundaries for cadging and even our stern looks might not make them cease cajoling us till we loosen our stand and get them what they want. Certainly many of us would have met such a person sometime or the other. Our banks certainly can be certified as such. Those calls for promotion just can get on our nerve can’t they? So how much do we take before we lose control of our mind? And which way to do we lose control? Get wise and make them cease their cackling, or give up and keep casually contributing to their bottomless pits of money.
