One of the worst traits in a person, in today’s time, is for him to be stingy, which means kanjoos in our native language. If a person is kanjoos, everyone around him will make sure he knows it, be it to his face or behind his back.
Being stingy is thought to be an extremely negative trait in our society. People earn money all their lives, do not upgrade their standards of living, all they do is save up everything they’ve made and derive pleasure by looking at their fortunes. This disease is known as Penny-Pinching, or how we in Pakistan like it call it, being “Kanjoos-Makhi-Choos”.
We’re sure you must have seen many kanjoos people in your life, but the person we’re going to be talking about today has broken all records. He is the epitome of the word stingy and indeed, nobody can replace that sort of interest and alignment to not spending anything.
Meet the biggest kanjoos of Pakistan, 65-year-old Nazir Arain from Rajanpur. The man is said to own lands worth rupees several crores and keeps a net amount of 21 lakh rupees inside his house, stuffed in a ‘sandooq‘ which is buried in the ground. Nazir has two sons and a wife, who are suffering at the hands of this extremely stingy person.
Living inside a shattered and unconstructed house, Nazir and his family are living a life that even the poorest in the country try to avoid. Nazir keeps a heavy snake on his chest when it comes to spending money. The old man gives rupees 30-35 every day to his wife for her to feed them with food. Imagine, having so much money and letting your family starve to death, only the biggest kanjoos in this world can do so.
Tired of Nazir’s kanjoosi, his family decided to teach him a lesson. His sons and wife took the 21 lakh rupees out of the ground and took the money to the police station, where media arrived as well. In the police station, the mockery of Nazir’s beliefs started. In his torn clothes, Nazir sat there with the money in his lap.
The family complained to the DPO Rahim Yar Khan that Nazir does not give them any money despite being blessed with so much. The DPO could not launch a FIR against him for obvious reasons but decided to take the money and keep it with a relative until Nazir opened a bank account because the threat of the money being looted was evident due to the condition of his house.
