A mad quest for money



She was born in a traditional family
Her parents and in-laws were happy with whatever little they had
One day she landed in dream land
Land of play, frolic,drug,wine,free sex and even murder
In that land one can earn both white and black money
There is only hankering after money, money , money and only money
For getting money there one can adopt any way , right or wrong
There one becomes rich by any and many meanwithos The theme is :be modern, break withouttradition, live in live- in -relationship,be hypocrite, even be accomplish of murder and crime still manage to remain prime
Three Ws rules the roost
They are wine,woman and wealth
Modernity without morality,
Work without wisdom
Action without accountability
Relationship without love and affection
Exhibit of love and lust for loot
Are some of attributes for quest of money for insatiable limit
