Privacy! Is it a lot to ask?

            In this city of dreams, with its light, passion and vigor, there seems nothing that cannot make us happy. Yet time and again, as much as we love Mumbai, we struggle to cope with how it works. Space, privacy are words unheard of over here.
           People cannot keep a distance, cannot respect your privacy even if you are one of those kinds who hardly socialize. This constant need to know the details of all the people in your life might be frustrating someone beyond measure (example = us!). Really! What exactly is so interesting about what's going on in my love life? or what i'm studying? And now that you've poked and prodded me till I answer all your nosey questions, who gave you the right to judge? So i'm just doing ordinary B.A. while your boy is doing engineering? Well! Congo aunty and thanks for the unasked information!
         If invasion of mental privacy wasn't enough, the physical part comes in. You can practically never be alone! Most parents don't approve of closed doors of rooms, sitting at a cafe alone means getting weird glances, private time on trains, buses is a joke! So when? When can we just sit, with a cup of coffee, with mental and physical privacy and just be able to breathe?

                                                              Questions, questions!

On a lighter note we clicked these pictures before catching up with an old friend over the movie  'Ishqzaade'. Diana liked it, I didn't! Rare clash of opinions! :P Have you seen it yet? Share it with us in the comments section.


P.S. Thank you guys for showing us so much love in the blogging world. We love each of your comments and are grateful to come across so many awesome people :)

  8. Loved all the accessories on Diana.. I guess a visit to Colaba and FS is pending. Haven’t been to FS since ages maybe almost 9 years or so... last visited when I was doing my graduation. The stuff during that time was not that great and slowly graduated to shopping for Malls, Boutiques and Bandra...

  17. cute outfit, and y'all are both so pretty :)
    Is this lack of privacy only aroudn the area you live in India? I have to say- I think people are given too much privacy here in the US- sometimes I wonder how much parents even care about their young adults. But we all desire the happy medium... I guess that comes with the development of a two way relationship?

    I am your NEWEST FOLLOWER GFC! I hope you can stop by my blog and follow me back now too! and If you have ANy feedback at all I would appreciate it!

    God bless

    1. We live in 2 very contrasting worlds. Wish they was some sort of balance so there would be no invasion of privacy but also no loneliness.
      And thank you :)
