2. “I lived in Ghatkopar outside my college, because I did not want to share one hostel room with two people. The middle-aged couple were generally the best people to have. They never interfered with my life, even if friends came to my house at 3 AM – even if all of them were girls… As a pampered only child from a small town, they were a blessing I needed the most in this fast-moving city.” – GreenStock4702
