————————————–

Shylock is a fictional character in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. A Venetian Jewish moneylender, Shylock is the play’s principal antagonist. His defeat and his conversion to Christianity forms the climax of the story.

Typically played as a villain until the nineteenth century, Shylock has been increasingly portrayed as a semi-tragic figure whose vengeful acts arise from his victimisation.
———————————

A moneylender is a person or group who offers small personal loans at high rates of interest.The high interest rates charged by them is justified in many cases by the risk involved.

They play an active role in lending to people with less access to banking activities, such as the unbanked or underbanked or in situations where borrowers do not have good credit history. They sometimes lend to people like gamblers and compulsive shoppers who often get into debt.

Many countries have laws in place that requires money lenders to be registered and limits on the interest rates that may be charged.

My mother died last Monday. Strength is what I need most right now.

For FF, For this week’s theme: Written on the Body

My life is a series of trials. One which anyone would find more than challenging.

Last week, I got removed from my job because of global recession. My mother died last Monday, August 10 2009. I was hospitalized Wednesday morning. Today is my mother’s funeral. She was 54.

The tattoo that I got last Friday, August 8, is a symbol for inner strength. It is the alchemy symbol for iron. Iron is the core of supernovas, the state before which stars explode. Iron is that which holds the entire star together before it finally sets itself on fire.

I do not think there is a more fitting symbol for that which I need in my life right now.

I’ll add more outtakes on the comments tomorrow.

PS: NOT TAKEN by ME. THANKS.
