During the last year of my graduation, I left my college hostel and shifted to a flat in the Jaipur city. I was a student of Amity University Rajasthan, which is located at a distance of 36KMs from the main Jaipur city - On Jaipur Delhi Highway (NH11). So it was quite a pain to travel to the city for every other occasion. I was a student of Journalism and mass communication and I wanted to take some good exposure in the market by doing some part-time job while managing classes. Hence, I took the decision to shift outside and free myself from any possible unnecessary foundation.
My landlord and lady were quite friendly until I got acquainted by the drinking habits of my landlord. He had no children of his own, so he used to look up at us to fulfil that void in his life - which is evidently not possible all the time- because I had a lot of other things to do like - going to classes, managing job and also completing my assignments at night.
He had decent families as their tenants at their bungalow. One on the ground floor, we stayed adjacent to their place - our (mine and landlord's) doors were just an inch apart (hence they'd seep in anytime-creepy). and two other families upstairs.
Every night he used to drink (not that he'd get drunk) and he would send his wife to ask if we have had our (my roommate and me) dinners and used to get us some home cooked food, instead of talking hours and hours with us, which would stretch up to 2am. We were quite fine until it became his daily habit. We decided to leave the place but couldn't, as either other places were quite expensive or already occupied. Meanwhile, his tenants on the ground floor left due to some internal issues with him.
It was the time I went to Pushkar with my friends for the Camel festival when he himself shifted all my stuff downstairs. Then a few days later, he started getting it renovated by breaking all the walls and pillars (While all my stuff were already there). He shifted all the kitchen items to my bedroom, leaving it all smelly and hard to breathe - whilst it was a dark room with no ventilation.
