Make love, not movement

Mid Day reports:
After having sex on the chipped kitchen floor, Rahul and his wife Sneha dare not stretch to relax.

Because if they do, the steel vessels washed after dinner may just tumble off the wooden table on which they are kept; the table, which has a broken leg, is a mere millimetre away from Rahul’s elbow.
So if you hear sounds of "Ooh, aah, ouch" coming from inside a chawl, the "ouch" is probably the couple being hit by a falling utensil. That's the tragedy for so many families living in cramped conditions in Mumbai -- there may be desire, but there isn't enough space.
