Upper Middle class to Rich kind of kids are spoilt, do not understand the value of money, and generally are unfit to live life, right?
WRONG. WRONG. COMPLETELY WRONG.
Just too many people in the world are firmly of the belief that rich kids are useless!! Nothing can be further than the truth. I know one man with about Rs. 800 crore net worth who gave his son a Eurorail pass and asked him to see whole of Europe. Believe me he could have flown him first class with a ayah along to cook and take care of him. Now a typical middle class reaction to this would be? Frankly I do not know.
I know another person who had a similar net-worth and his daughter had no permission to buy a Rs. 6k dress without her mother’s consent. I know houses with upwards of Rs. 50 crore net worth where the family car is accessible only for the older members and the kids have to travel by public transport. I know kids whose pocket money is linked to some performance – an academic or a health parameter.
In many business families kids spend time in the office RIGHT from the class 8 vacation. Seeing the ropes, if not learning them.
I know friends whose kids go and work in other people’s offices, in other business lines, before they are inducted into the family business.
When I see some people comment I keep wondering if it is really value systems that they are talking about or is it jealousy. If my parents took me only by plane, and I stayed only in 3* or 5* hotels, do I have to prove to the morons around that I can go by train and stay in a dharamshala? not joking, asking….
