''Everyone’s life is not a bed of roses ji. Everyone has struggled to reach somewhere.I’m sure you have a house/car too.The day heat waves/flooding/natural disasters strike,it’ll affect the common man first. Elitists will be the first to run away to their Swiss chalet.''

Don’t grudge anyone their success or earnings.”
