How long do you think can manage paycheck to paycheck?


Hey you! Yes You! How have you been? How is life treating you? Or, let’s ask otherwise...

How are you treating life?

Yes, life is not always what happens to you. Life is also what you create. No, this isn’t another boring philosophical-motivational stuff that you are going to read. Let’s talk about Subroto. You don’t know Subroto? Well, let’s read his story first and then see if you know him or not.

Subroto, 40, was employed in a call center in Gurugram. He was earning well. He started using credit cards. He eventually obtained a large number of credit cards. He took out some personal loans for his son’s education as well. He didn’t share why he started borrowing money from his colleagues to repay the EMIs on his credit cards. He also started transferring money from one debit card to another and took out new loans to pay off previous ones, all of which were available instantly online. He was still managing somehow. But then one day the manager was not happy with his performance and asked him to leave. He couldn’t find a new job. He didn’t restrict his spending, thinking that he would be able to manage. Sometimes we get hopelessly hopeful. Don't we? After a few days, Subroto vanished. Some say, he went back to his hometown. The collection agents started bothering their colleagues, and this went on for a few months. At a reunion, people did remember Subroto, but no one still knows where he is.

Now we ask you, do you know any ‘Subroto’?

Can you guess what went wrong in his life?

Yes, you guessed it right. It was a lack of financial discipline. He was earning well. But he was not controlling his expenses. He saw credit cards and personal loans as easy money but forgot that they come with a time limit.
