Rising inequality!

Dear Madam,
Thanks to rising inequality, which as per the recently published report by the World Inequality Lab has surpassed even during the time of the British Raj, the tentacles of VIP culture are spreading rapidly with each passing day. My local SBI branch has opened a special counter where customers can withdraw or deposit money with ease avoiding long queue at the general counter. Standing at the end of a serpentine queue of the general counter, an old man leaning on his stick asked if the special counter was for differently abled persons and senior citizens. Immediately, he was provided enlightenment with the information that the counter was only for the VIPs who would transact a minimum amount of Rs 50 thousand!
