Kind landlords are hard to find. Someone who has lived in a rented apartment as a paying guest can totally vouch for it. I am talking about those modest landlords who aren’t always into asking you to pay for their rent whenever you meet them. But they either invite you to dinner or make sweet gestures for you out of humility. A simple kind gesture such as avoiding ‘no non-veg allowed’ or ‘no boys allowed’ rules works like a charm. When you find those landlords, consider yourself a lucky tenant.
