Yashoda never trusted her husband.
He was wayward and never cared for her. So she pinched a 500 or a 1000 Rupee note from him every week over the past five years, and dreamt of buying beautiful clothes, purses and what not.
Her husband never bothered to check the odd Rs.1000 or Rs.500 that went missing. He secretly knew that his wife was pinching it too, but did not bother because it gave him the licence to have his secrets too.
Until one day, the Supreme Leader announced his magic bullet.
Unable to come to terms now that her ploy is out in the open, she was drinking kadak chai and contemplating what to do.
The unbearably one morning, some five days after the grand announcement, she came and handed over her secret stash to her husband.
“Darling, there is just a few lakhs in this. Please somehow convert it and get me some nice clothes.”
The husband had tears of joy. “Wow, how the supreme leader has empowered husbands.”
