In the past few days, I’ve had multiple realizations of what the legendary Marathi author P.L. Deshpande wrote about Pune’s shopkeepers. He wrote, “The customer is the least important entity for Pune’s shop keepers”. In the last 15 days, I got insulted by two shopkeepers and I couldn’t do anything about it.
The same is true with Pune’s Auto-Rickshawallas. They care the least about their customers.
Narrating the incidents will only hurt die-hard Pune lovers.
