Essay On Life Of A Coin
A coin remains in circulation for many years. It is minted in one of the mints of the Government. As soon as it is minted, it is named as a rupee coin, a two-rupee coin, or a five-rupee coin. Nowadays coins having a value of ten rupees are also minted by the Government.
At first, coins and other currencies are shifted in the Reserved Bank of India. Their job starts when a bank cashier pays them to the person at his counter. In the beginning, the life of any coin is full of strength and shine. The designs on either side are clear and perfect. The actual life of a coin starts as soon as it falls in the pockets of a person. Now the lifelong adventurous journey of a coin begins all over the country.
Without taking long breaks, a coin has to travel day and night from one pocket to another. Sometimes it may even have to stay with its master for too long because of the miser nature of its master.
In its entire life, a coin passes through thousands of hands. It can have both a poor as well as rich as its master. Depending on its master, it stays with hundreds of its brothers or even with a very few of them. A coin has many houses to stay in. It is lucky to have a purse, wallet, pockets, soft velvet pouch, or a locker as its house. It keeps on shifting its house. It can even have no such shelter and may have to pass many years somewhere at the corner of a filthy gutter or a dusty road.
Its most caring master is a beggar. A coin serves him by helping him to get something to eat. Sometimes within no time, a coin has to leave its master. This is because a coin can be used for buying many small things like chocolates, pencils, rubbers, sharpeners, etc. It also helps its brothers in buying several other things.
As long as a coin is new and has its shine, design, and shape intact, man is pleased to hold it in his hands. Once it loses its beauty, people fool each other and start circulating it very fast. No one likes to keep such coins. A coin during its life provides selfless service to us. When it grows old or is out of circulation, it loses its importance. We must always respect a coin whether old or new.
