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.
