Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 47

Parents trapped
16.2.2013, Mumbai

I write this blog in great concern and anguish. It is for all the parents who think their children leave home early morning to attend college.

As a radio journalist I have to reach the studio every morning at 8.15 and have to walk past the Cinemax Theatre, Versova to take entry into the Big FM Studio.

Every morning there are young students with college bags strung on their shoulders assembled on the steps of the Box-office ticket window snuggled next to their lovers.

They come day after day and are parked on the steps from morning till evening when I walk down the same path for my evening link to the studio again.

It is evident that these young boys and girls are not attending college and are not in the least bit ashamed of their behaviour. 

My worry is for the anxious mothers who wake up early in the morning to make breakfast for their kids thinking they are studying so hard at college. Maybe they should pay a surprise visit to Fun Republic and Cinemax Theatre in Versova and give them a dose of parental guidance.
