Unusual incident

An unusual story that I heard today. I was travelling from Chembur to Mulund in an auto. Since it was a long travel, the autowalla started chatting and told me this real-life story.

He was from some village near Pune and his parents still stayed there. Since he had saved up some money, he wanted to purchase a motor cycle for his dad. He sent across Rs. 35,000 to his dad through some person who was travelling to his village. His mother hid the cash into the chullah in the night to protect it from thieves. Unfortunately, in the morning, she forgot about it and kept a vessel of milk on the chullah for heating. In no time, the cash was turned into ashes.

The worst part is that because of this shock, the poor lady went insane :-(
