A golden cage
A golden cage: Hours to kill...
"I walk into a friend’s palatial home in south Delhi the other day and find her looking despondent. She is married to a successful businessman, has two children, both of whom are now studying in the US, runs a nice home and is free all day to pursue whatever catches her fancy. Yet I find her very low — seeming almost depressed. I ask what has happened and her answer is “nothing” is happening. Everything is perfect: she is rich by most standards, has a peaceful marriage, her children are doing fine, she has plenty of help at home and yet, it feels empty."
