Supply > demand

Term one had just completed & everyone was leaving for home. I wasn’t. So all the seniors who were there in the campus were asking me the same question, “Why are you not going to your home?”
I had to tell them that my parents are coming.
Same happened when I met another senior, but she was keenly interested in knowing the details. SO she asked me, “Wouldn’t it be great if you go to your home? You not only meet your parents but other people too”
I said, “Yes! But my mom was worried about me. Once she will have a look at this place, she will be relaxed.”
Another immediate question from her was, “Is this your first time you are living away from your home?”
I said, “No, it’s been 12 years that I am living away from home.”
She was prepared with the next question, “So, your parents must be used to it, na?”
I said, “No, their willingness to visit me has kept on increasing over the period of time. Mother is the only person who defies the laws of supply and demand. The supply is ample irrespective of immediate market availability or even demand, moreover there is no marginal limit to it. The more you take it from her, the more she will be ready to give and that too at less expenditure**.”
This time, she took some time to react. She just thought for a while to herself and said, “Agreed. Maa ka pyar hi saccha pyar hota hai. 🙂 🙂 “
**(Less expenditure because she is the one who is spending each and everything, so basically your spending is negative. More she spends, more is your spending in negative and hence you can say that your expenditure was less. 😀 )
