Wife: Don’t put so many clothes for wash. Maid has said she won’t come for two days.

Husband :Why ?

Wife: She said she is going to meet her grand daughter during Ganpati festival. And, Shall I give her Rs. 500 for Ganpati Festival bonus?

Wife: Oh no dear. She is poor. Going to meet her daughter and grand daughter, so she will also feel nice. Moreover, everything has become so expensive these days. How will she able to celebrate festival?

Husband : You ! I don’t know why you become emotional so easily.

Wife : Oh dear, don’t worry. I am going to cancel today’s program of ordering Pizza. Why unnecessarily blow away Rs. 500 on eight pieces of stale bread.

Husband : Wow. Great. Snatching Pizza from us and giving to the maid !

Maid returned after three days and got busy in mopping and dusting.

Husband asked her.. So, how was the vacation ?

Maid : Very nice sahib.. Didi had given Rs. 500 .. festival bonus.

Husband : So you went and met your daughter ? and also met your grand daughter ?

Maid: yes sahib. Enjoyed a lot and spent Rs 500 in two days time.

Husband : Really ? Ok so what did you do with Rs. 500?

Maid : Rs. 150 for dress for grand daughter, Rs 40 for a doll, boughtsweets worth Rs 50 for daughter, Rs 50 as offering to Deity in temple,Rs 60 towards bus fare, Rs 25 for bangles for daughter, bought a nice belt worth Rs 50 for son-in-law, balance Rs 75 gave to daughter to buy copy and pencil for grand daughter. Maid gave a full account of the expenses incurred.

Husband : (Surprised) So much in Rs 500?

With surprise, he started thinking.The eight pieces of Pizza appeared in front of his eyes and each one of them acted as a hammer started pricking his consciousness. For the price of one Pizza, he started comparing the expenses his maid had incurred during her visit to her daughter.


The eight pieces of Pizza floated in front of his eyes.

First piece ... dress for the child

Second piece … towards sweets..

Third piece … towards offering to the deity in the temple.

Fourth piece ... towards bus fare.

Fifth piece ... towards doll.

Sixth piece ... towards bangles,

Seventh piece... towards belt for the son-in-law.

Eighth piece... towards copy and pencil.

So far he had observed pizza only from one angle. He turned it upside down and observe how it looks like from the other side but today his maid showed him the other side of the pizza. The eight pieces of pizza showed him the real meaning of life and the meaning of “Spending for life” or “Life for spending”.
