India in pictures
Concrete Jungle8:28 AM
Today in India in Pictures, I give you the view I had from the previous flat I was living in before being where I am now.
This is suburban Mumbai for you! A succession of high rise buildings after high rises. People neatly packed into little boxes at the end of their work day. Mumbai is a city where space is a luxury, and square feet come at a premium. The average modern 2BHK in the suburbs is around 800sq ft (and that is still considered big). Ours was a whooping 900 sq ft which is already considered huge. It of course came at the rent price of a 3-4 BHK Bungalow in Bangalore. Mumbai is a costly city to live in, and the real estate prices are the highest in the country that I heard of, with Delhi coming close behind that.
On an Island city, going vertical is a necessity. As a result, your view is likely to resemble the one in the picture above : a concrete jungle.
