Ten­ants talk about life in Tal­war home

Who­ever comes to the Jal Vayu Vi­har colony in Noida Sec­tor-25 to take up the Tal­war’s house for rent, meets with raised eye­brows.

Monika Shukla is how­ever quite used to that now. Shukla who has been re­sid­ing at the in­fa­mous L-32 flat for the last one-and-a-half years or so — along with her sis­ter, brother in-law and three dogs — says get­ting do­mes­tic help to work in the house was a prob­lem.

A fash­ion de­signer, Shukla says do­mes­tic help in the so­ci­ety would charge more for house­hold chores as many of them felt scared to work there. At times, she says, they even re­fused to work alone in­side the house and de­manded an­other mem­ber to be present un­til they fin­ished their work.

“We have never faced any prob­lem in the house. It’s a lovely house, and we have no is­sues at all. Ini­tially, the kids would do funny things like ring the door­bell and run away, but we have not faced any problems. The neigh­bours, the other res­i­dents and ev­ery­one in the lo­cal­ity are very nice peo­ple,” Shukla says.

“We just go and drop a cheque when we need to pay the rent (to the Tal­wars). They are a lovely fam­ily, and I sym­pa­thise with them,” she says.
