Today is my daughter’s birthday. I asked her,” What would you like to have as a birthday present?”
She retorted,” I don’t want a present. Can I have some cash,please.”
I gave her five thousand rupees. She kept it safely and said, “It’s my friend’s birthday,this month. She is an orphan. My group has decided to provide her some financial assistance. Can I have some more money?”
I hesitated. “I just have forty thousand rupees darling,darling. If i give you those, how would we afford an animal to sacrifice this Eid ul Azha?”
Her innocent question left me speechless. “What else is the gist of “sacrifice”, daddy?”.
