Pakistanis got deep on an Insta thread and we almost can not handle it. What is being rich for you?
Bob Marley Weighs In
Bob Marley, the musical legend has once posed this question. “Are you rich?” His response is quoted even today where he denied the fact that money makes you rich. He said love, people, memories and relationships make you rich.
The Insta Thread
Someone on Twitter was going through their “sad boi hours” and though to ask their followers this question:
Whats the minimum you need to have in order to be considered “rich” ?

The results you ask? They were varied, entertaining, reflective and most importantly, enlightening. Are you ready for a social roller coaster?
There were many who took this question the light-hearted way and gave responses that were amusing. They had a range of funny, pun-intended answers to provide to keep the audience entertained. Here’s that same entertainment for you!

There were many who made Plato and Aristotle happy. They gave answers that neither gave a yes nor a no. Delving into the psyche of the human mind, they explained whether humans can ever even be rich.
“Rich” is a relative term, you won’t find an objective answer to this.

Whatever satisfies you, and nothing satisfies anyone because people are always wanting more. So no one is ever “rich”, they just have more money in comparison to someone else. If that even made sense .-.

The Honest Ones
Then there were the honest ones who truly spoke from the heart. For them being rich meant to fulfil their wishes to do this and that. They wanted to sustain their households whilst also being able to afford “rationally arguable luxuries”. Is it just us or are people too deep?
A car, a budget around 40k for leisure spending, branded clothes, your own room (or a house for that matter), one extra appartment for misc. things, and the expenditure of 3 middle class families.

If ur parents are alive U r rich. If u r healthy u r rich. If there is no debt on u, u r rich.
If u have more than 2 million dollars u will be consider rich in any part of the world.

Amidst all these, there were many who acted as social reflections. They showed what the society has ingrained in their heads as definition of rich. People want to acquire wealth to “show it to people” or to have a big car.
3 cars , 5 bank accounts, A government associated Job, worth of 10 million.

In the world we live in, especially having survived a pandemic, we can all agree all these markers of success don’t mean anything.
So, What is Being Rich?
There can never be an answer to this question. The question is as old as time though the answers change with each person. It’s because there is no single recipe for acquiring wealth monetarily, socially or culturally.
We have even seen that “money does not buy happiness.” Celebrities drowning in wealth have been unhappy and those with no roof over their heads have been the happiest. Penny for your thoughts?
