A close watch of the developments of the bail out plan is making me a thorough bred economist.
Today morning , I was browsing through the morning news paper.
My milk man slowly walked through the pathway.
He scratched his head,cleared his throat,meekly called me.”amma.”
i was amused to see his rehearsal.
“Yes ,Madhav,tell me”
“Amma, I have to raise the milk price.”
Why ?Only a month back you hiked the price.
No amma, the bail out plan in U.S is about to be passed.
I was dumb founded.
U.S bail out of $700 billion relates to my milk price.
“O.K. madhav. I will review it and let you know.”
After break fast, I had to go to the marker to buy vegetables for the week.
My regular vendor, advised me to buy a little extra, as he is expecting the prices to go up.
I asked him the reason.
‘ Amma ,you are so ignorant, the U.S senate is going to approve the rescue plan”
“There is lot of cheer in the market”
I was baffled.
Deliberating on the push outs, I felt it is better to stock my grocery too.
I rushed to my grocer.
He welcomed me, with a big smile.
Before I could place my order,he brought a big pack
.’Amma ,you are very slow to take note of the world economy.’
‘Having been my customer, for so many years, I have taken care to provide you with all your regualr buys.
This time ,it will last for two months.
I do not want to tax my customer ,with exorbitant price”
I was speech less.
I nodded my head vigorously.
I thanked him profusely for his timely action.
Bail out, is affecting my daily routine.
The milk man, the vegetable vendor, and the grocer have made me small.
