I’m standing at an open window, the wind in my hair, the rain on my face, looking down at the open expanse on one side and construction going on in the distance. The homes being built will be sold for multiples of crores and the shanties near by belong to the construction workers building them. That single moment is such a leveller. Regardless of our dwellings, humble or exalted, we all turn our faces up to the heavens in gratitude, as our prayer for rain is answered
