When we were living in Dubai I had a walk in closet The size of an apartment here is the size of a balcony there Imagine! So then why did you leave it all to come here? Why? People are coming to India I don’t want to live like a second-class citizen, anywhere Be careful Samar! It must be a really expensive flight right? Malaysia to Bombay? Depends, business or economy? Must be business he must not be paying for it himself the company will pay for him right? But still I mean… He’s coming all the way just for one night Alka.. I want to see him just once!!!

It’ll go well with this… This must be really expensive It is! It’s some vinatge designer Bought it in Singapore I had to fight with Rishi to buy it That makes it more valuable Chardonnay! How much is it? I’m giving it to you We’ve been neighbours for a while now “I could never keep you happy!” He hit her with brooms, shoes, anything he found! “Loan, loan. Money. Money.” That’s all they talked about But why he had to kill his little son? Rich people can’t deal with losing money What was the child’s name?

We’ll have some bruschetta Thank you That’s a lovely necklace It’s vintage. Bought it from Singapore. Very nice So you travel a lot? One or two trips abroad a year, usually Pleasure with business Actually… thank you… sometimes he is so busy that we only get to chat on Facetime And in hotels, there’s the pool side There’s so much to do in five star hotels, for children If I had it my way I would stay in five star hotels my whole life! Mine is the opposite! When I enter a five star I feel so strange I find it all so fake the elevators, the music the water nobody feels like family everybody is just serving you Bloody hell, everything is just a job! At first I used to enjoy this lifestyle but now all of this feels empty You know what I like? I like something simple Maybe a good show on TV A sweet wife Children doing homework at home while I watch television and then I get irritated by the sound the cooker is making you know? The mundane. Just simple and usual. Next year, we’re going to the US Disney land, Samar’s choice Actually Girish every kid should go to Disney land at least once right? Cheers!
