I was quite indigent for quite some time. So was, in a manner of speaking, he.
He got a windfall of about 20,000 Rupees.
After paying off his local debts, including 800 to the chaiwala, he was left with 1200.
He went and paid the entire amount against my phone bill.
I complained that the bill was for 600 only and didn’t need paying and he should have bought some small gift/item for his family.
