Hailing from a "comparitively" sleepy and conservative town of Chennai and moving to Bombay was an experience by itself.I call Chennai a town not because of it's size or population,but just because of the overall laid-back attitude of the janta.I would'nt imagine a girl wearing a t-shirt to college,the sloganm saying"Fcuked twice only and 19,totally uncool".People express themselves and sometimes vulgarly.
A 30 yr old Govt. engineer is capable of buying a 90 Lakh flat(pretty common in mumbai) would be a front pager in the HINDU.I understand there is corruption everywhere.But i fail to understand, how a guy manages to "make money out of black money".Looking at all this my dear friends the value of a 10 rupee note ceases to exist.
I hail from a middle class family.As per the GOI urban middle class (assets 5-10 lakh),but in Bombay it is 50 100 lakhs.Everyone is a shark and a normal office going person talks about investment in "petis"(slang for a briefcase with 1 lakh cash).One with a 20 grand pay-packet can not help but feel poor.That is all about money guys.
Carrying on from the point of the girl wearing an obscene t-shirt.Love-life here is as obscene as the t-shirt.Yesterday nite there wasa big commotion upstairs at midnite.A couple "living together" but not married,started yelling at each other.By listening to whatever I cud gather, the girl was shouting about a strip of contraceptives in the Guy's pocket sometime before.Essentially when the guy returned in the nite there was his colleague on top of his GF.A common call center story.Life here is so uncaring.
Bye for now
