Why you should...
...be a spendthrift

  • ILLUSTRATION BY SANDEEP JOSHIBecause thatís the best way to flaunt your credit cards.

  • Because saving schemes are passe. Look at whatís happened to UTI.

  • Because unless you spend more, how will your husband be compelled to earn more...and more.

  • Because now there are shows like KBC and Chappad Phaad Ke to take care of your whopping shopping bills.

  • Because you never sat in an economics class. The word budgeting is Greek to you.

  • Because you donít want to save for a rainy day. Who knows whether youíll live to see that day?

  • Because you have the othersí economic well-being at heart. You want the shopkeepers to prosper.

  • Because you donít mind burning a hole in your already tattered pockets.

  • Because youíd rather sprint in Nikes today than do a one-legged hobble in their future models when youíre 70.

  • Because you donít believe in rebirth. Youíd rather treat yourself to all the good things in this lifetime.
