Mourn for your Money day

Today while searching the web for my work, I came to the site of 123greetings. There I found that Tuesday, the 1oth of June'08, is "Mourn for your Money day". That kept me thinking – why do I need to mourn for money any particular day when this mourning is part of my everyday routine (not very apparent though, but yes, deep down somewhere!!). Perhaps the same feeling applies to many of you. Why is that we always seem to want more and are never satisfied with what we have (Ja chayechi ami ta paina, ja peyechi keno ta chaina – remember this song?)

It was long ago when the great saint Swami Ramakrishna Paramahamsa said :Taka maati, maati taka (referring to the fact that wealth is short lived and we shouldn't pine for it). However, clever souls of the present consumer driven age have added one more line to this philosophical saying :Taka baadey jibon faanka (life is empty if you don't have enough money to buy and splurge on things). Wonder what my readers think of the craving to earn and have more and more.

Maybe, the great saint was actually referring to real estate (maati) prices (taaka). Jokes apart, money always chases things in demand. They can be land,stocks,products, professional skills, expertise or knowledge etc etc. Its better to "chase" development of one's own vocation & self than to chase money. If things fall in line one day, money will chase you. Isn't it?
