Do you remember celebrating any festival as a child? Be it Diwali, Eid, Rakshabandhan, Holi, absolutely any festival, one thing you were sure to receive as a child, apart from new clothes and sweets, was money. And you'd probably lie to yourself if you say that this was something you weren't the most excited about. Some of us liked to collect and store it in our piggy banks, and the rest would immediately set out to spend it. And since it was the money that was completely ours, we didn't need to seek any permission from our elders as to where and how we could spend it; well, usually.
