the whole concept of money making is really weird.. the more u get into making money, the lesser is the probability that u are gonna spend it.. i'm sure that if any millionaire is posed with this age old question of 'what are u gonna do with all this money??', he is bound to present to you a totally unconvincing answer.. something like 'it is all for me, my family' or something equally inane..what bewilders me is not the fact that there are hajaar ppl who wanna make money, but the fact that all those who have enough money dont seem to stop the process... most of the blokes in this world seem to be complaining about a lack of money but dont seem to spend the money that they have already currently got.. i dont have a problem with people who complain because they genuinely do not have any bucks to spend.. but then, the remaining ppl complaining in spite of having prosperous coffers doesn seem right to me.. 'greed' seems to be the most appropriate word that i can attribute to such a situation.. something like stocking up all the curd in the world by working hard in the peak summers but not using it to quench your thirst and then realizing in winter that the curd has gone sour and even if it had not, it wouldnt have mattered.. why dont we just live for today as we dream of and stop bothering too much about tomorrow.. large amounts of idle money according to me is no different from a deadly virus which ruins your current happiness.. the bottom line in life is of course peace of mind..or wait.. why cant making money be that 'peace of mind' for a few???

I dont mind stealing bread
From the mouths of decadence
But I cant feed on the powerless
When my cups already overfilled
But its on the table
The fire is cooking
And theyre farming babies
While the slaves are working
The blood is on the table
And their mouths are choking
But Im growing hungry
