Sometime after Ajay died, his widow, Tia, was finally able to speak about what a thoughtful and wonderful man her late husband had been.

“Ajay thought of everything,” she told them. “Just before he died, Ajay called me to his bedside. He handed me three envelopes. ‘Tia,’ he told me, ‘I have put all my last wishes in these three envelopes. After I am dead, please open them and do exactly as I have instructed. Then, I can rest in peace’.”

“What was in the envelopes?” her friends asked.

“The first envelope contained Rs.30,000 with a note, ‘Please use this money for a grand funeral.’ So I cremated him with sandalwood and I know Ajay is resting very comfortably.”

“The second envelope contained Rs.50,000 with a note, ‘Please use this for a nice after funeral meal for the guests ‘I arranged Ajay for a very dignified funeral service and bought all his favorite foods for everyone attending.”

“And the third envelope?” asked her friends.
“The third envelope contained RS.5 lac with a note, ‘Please use this to buy a nice stone.'”

Holding her hand in the air, Tia said…
“So, do you like my stone?” showing off her 10 carat diamond ring.
