Pune, India
I'm not here at all. Consumed by the demands of life, Lost in the swirls of doom. I am a shadow that had dissapeared. All that is left is an echo, not all can hear. Curiouser and Curiouser it gets!

Maul the malls

City : Jaipur
Location : Office
Day : Friday

Suvarna: The weekend finally! Saurabh, are there any good places to see in Jaipur?
Saurabh : Sure there are! Catch a bus to 22 Godaam. go to crystal palace. Best way to spend teh weekend in Jaipur.
Suvarna: Crystal palace.. sounds good. who built it?
Saurabh : I've no idea.
Suvarna : What kind a place is it? Can I explore it on my own? Or will I need a guide? Is it near Hawa Mahal or the City Palace or Jantar Mantar?
Saurabh: No!!! Its a mall. Lifestyle, CCD, Inox, Mc Donald's sab milega.. Poora dinn nikal jaataa hai
Suvarna : !&&*#$???

What time are we living in? In city like Jaipur known for its heritage sites, visitors are packed off to malls. Welcome to generation Z, a whole bunch of kids who have grown up too fast, earn way too much than they need, do the work the do not love, to earn money and buy stuff they do not need. My MBA in marketing suddenly makes me feel like spiderman. I gives me the power to sell, to commercialise life itself at the risk of corroding society as we know it.

With great power comes great responsibility. And I thought it would be fun to be spidey!!!
