The Value of First Income

All right, so by a show of hands, I’d like to see how many of you remember your first ever income. You remember your first ever income? Okay, quite a lot of you. So, I guess we can all agree that the first income is always very special to all of us. Okay. I remember my first ever income. It was 110 rupees.
