Will U Make this Bank Pass Book? (Story)

Monica married Hitesh this day. At the end of the wedding party,

Monica’s mother gave her a newly opened bank saving passbook.

With Rs.1000 deposit amount.

Mother: ‘Monica, take this passbook. Keep it as a record of your marriage

Life. When there’s something happy and memorable happened in your new

Life, put some money in. Write down what it’s about next to the line. The

More memorable the event is, the more money you can put in. I’ve done the

First one for you today. Do the others with Hitesh.When you look back

After years, you can know how much happiness you’ve had.’

Monica shared this with Hitesh when getting home. They both thought it

Was a great idea and were anxious to know when the second deposit can be made.

This was what they did after certain time:

– 7 Feb: Rs.100, first birthday celebration for Hitesh after marriage

– 1 Mar: Rs.300, salary raise for Monica

– 20 Mar: Rs.200, vacation trip to Bali

– 15 Apr: Rs.2000, Monica got pregnant

– 1 Jun: Rs.1000, Hitesh got promoted

….. And so on…

However, after years, they started fighting and arguing for trivial

Things.They didn’t talk much. They regretted that they had married the

Most nasty people in the world…. No more love…Kind of typical

Nowadays, huh?

One day Monica talked to her Mother:

‘Mom, we can’t stand it anymore. We agree to divorce. I can’t imagine how

I decided to marry this guy!!!’

Mother: ‘Sure, girl, that’s no big deal. Just do whatever you want if you

Really can’t stand it. But before that, do one thing first. Remember the

Saving passbook I gave you on your wedding day? Take out all money and

Spend it first. You shouldn’t keep any record of such a poor marriage.’

Monica thought it was true. So she went to the bank, waiting at the queue

And planning to cancel the account.

While she was waiting, she took a look at the passbook record. She looked,

And looked, and looked. Then the memory of all the previous joy and

Happiness just came up her mind. Her eyes were then filled with tears. She

Left and went home.

When she was home, she handed the passbook to Hitesh, asked him to spend

The money before getting divorce.

The next day, Hitesh gave the passbook back to Monica. She found a new

Deposit of Rs.5000. And a line next to the record: ‘This is the day I notice

How much I’ve loved you thru out all these years. How much happiness

You’ve brought me.’

They hugged and cried, putting the passbook back to the safe.

Do you know how much money they had saved when they retired? I did not

Ask.I believe the money did not matter any more after they had gone thru

All the good years in their life.
