enumerating a shopping list mentally and keyed in a large whole number.

– Clothes and jewelry, 7000/-.

– sweets for home 1000/-

– Phone for my hubby 12000/-

– crackers for the children 3000/-

– party with friends 4000/-”

The teller machine wobbled and vomited out a bunch of currency notes.

“Print receipt?” it asked on the screen.

“Yes.” she pressed.

“Donate Rs.100 to an orphan this festive season?” the screen flashed with another message.

“No” She punched annoyingly and walked out of the ATM busy with counting money.
