My friends and colleagues were talking that people from Mumbai were selfish and reserved and they did not support community activities. I put my ear on their discussion which was full of prejudices and ignorance of Mumbai’s actual civilized culture and countered their view citing an example of our common friend Pradip Lokhande who was from Mumbai, who used to give his new bike to me for the purposes of social activities whenever I asked. On many occasion, he had to manage to go offices with his friends as I had to go for some social trips.
I never bought a byke as instructed by my social guru with the intention that I will develop a habit of taking help from our friends for social purposes.
I bought a car just before I got married, as I can’t use friend’s thing for my personal use. Anyway, my movement got restricted later.
Precaution: Do not offer your vehicle, unless the person is very close to you.
