The village ayurvedic Doctor called his wife before going to his shop asked her wife " what is the requirement today Have you written already. She gave the written paper to him in the folded manner and handed over to him. This was the the routine for several years. The Vaid (which was usually mentioned for the Ayurved Doctors) took the paper and went to his Shop which he usually opens at 9 AM daily. On openning the shop after alittle prayer he opened the letter and he read. In that paper the day requirement for the household is written just like provisions etc. He calculated the amount required for purchasing the same. One by one the patients came and accordingly he gives medicine and gets money. Once the calculated money receives he will close the shop and retires for the day and goes to his house.
This was the routine. Oneday as usual wife handed over the list and he went to shop and opened the letter. There as usual the requirement of provision were there. In addition there was one more line For the daughters marriage required Dhage ie gold ,clothes, and connected things.The vaid was lost at the line of thinking and after sometime ,he wrote that this is duty of god to make arrangement for this and resumed his work.
