“The other day a drunken man sat in my cab and started hurling abuses at me. I bore it and safely dropped him home at 4am, but I was very upset because as it is my job is so under appreciated.
I was so cynical, I actually considered leaving and going back to Chandigarh.
Just then, another customer got in and asked me to take him to the airport. Even though it was early in the morning, he asked me my name, where I came from and where I stay in Bombay.
Half way through the journey he opened a box of sandwiches and offered me one and when he got out, he smiled and gave me 50 Rupees extra because 2 or 3 cab drivers before me had refused to take him.
This is Bombay ; it has so many worlds within it that even if you want to leave it- you can’t.”
