    Standing against a pillar, his head lowered, he slips the pink duck-faced puppets into his hands and waves weakly. The passers-by don?t notice. The Delhi Walla meets PM Sahay one evening in B Block, Inner Circle, Connaught Place, Delhi?s Colonial-era commercial district. A pavement hawker, he is 74.

    ?At this age shouldn?t you stay home?? I ask him.

    ?I can?t.?

    If an old man can work too hard to feed his family, why we young guys can't achieve what we want?

    I know I'm getting bashed for this, but this guy is (or at least was) a plain idiot.

    "A few years ago I spent all my savings for him to start his office in Delhi. But he moved to Bahrain without informing us."

    Not that good of a bank manager if he can't even manage his own finances good enough not to bet everything on 00, so to say.

    In India,its like this only,
    Parents will do anything for their children,even spend all their money like the guy above.

    As most of parents know that their children will support them when they are old.
    Yea its true that he should have managed his finances in a better way,but again like most of Indian parents he must have thought that his Son is going to support him in his later age.

    LOL, love it how you guys find even the most farthest possibility to brag about it...

    But country doesn't matter in this care - it's plain stupidity to spend your savings to your kid in full, because they may very well die any day, thus fucking up your life also.

    I got a feeling this thread is going south.
