Lala Garib Chand was wealthy a zamindar. He asked his muneem (accountant ) to add up all he owned and how long it could last. The mueem added up all his assets and assured him that it would certainly hold out till the traditional saat pusht - seven generations. Far from being relived Lala Grarib Chand looked more disconsolate than before and with agreat sigh of sorrow exclaimed, 'Hai! Hamaaree aathveen pusht ka kya hoga?' (Oh! what will happen to our eighth generation?).
