Theme #1

“Hard work is the key to achieving success in life”
We must acknowledge that one must pay the effort to get a good result.
“My son, show me that you can earn one rupee and all that I own will be yours when I die”.
Theme #2
“Although money cannot buy you happiness, it can give you the ability experience life at its fullest.”
Theme #3
“You must have the will to earn your own money because another person’s money will not help you”
So it is my son. Remember my words: As long as you work, you will have money and contentment, and all things will be yours. But if you will not work, another person’s money cannot help you, for someone else’s rupee is not worth one anna.”
“Someone else’s money you do not care about – that is cheap. But the money you earn by your own labour – ah, that you make a big fuss over!"

"Money plays a huge role in our lives and in today’s society whether we like it or not.
It is the key to the things that keep us living and without whom we would not able to take pleasure and experience life as a whole.
How is the father going to react?
“But unlike his father, the son of this industrious man was such a lazybones that in the whole wide world there was none to equal him.”
“show me that you can earn one rupee and all that I own will be yours when I die…prove to me now that you can earn something by the labour of your hands.”
