Topic: Social influence and persuasion;
8) You are working as a Group C government employee. Your salary can help you lead a reasonably good life but you are not able to save any money at the end of the month. Your parents had persuaded your wife to leave her job where she was earning as much as you are earning now. She now looks after home and your two children. Your parents are rich farmers but you haven’t received any property or money from them all your life. Recently, influenced by government’s persuasion to give up LPG subsidy, you decide to do the same. Your wife is furious. She tells you that it is for rich people to give up LPG and not for her family which is struggling hard to buy a own home or some jewellery for herself or even buy her children good toys.
Will you go ahead and give up LPG subsidy? Is your wife justified in opposing your decision? Justify. (150 Words)
