I often wonder if this is a long, loud belch after a sumptuous meal or is there more to it?
My first question to the likes of Mr. Hill would be: why do you have to say this? Why not just more people do it?
My second question: why do you have to be successful first and then throw away things? Why not be a 'failure' in the world's eyes to begin with? Won't it make things much simpler? Less garbage to clear for municipal authorities.
My final question to him: Are you happy saying : 'My space is small. My life is big.'? What if your space is small and life too is small?
All my life I have been always attracted to austere living rooms. I have lost count of how many such rooms I have seen during my childhood at Miraj. My classmates who came to Miraj from nearby villages to study after 7th or 10th always lived in such rooms and ate even simpler meals.
To my eyes, even following elegant and world-famous room looks crowded!
