Moving Day

Packers and moves clearing our old living room in GK-1

On 27 June 2009, we moved from our old apartment in GK-1, which despite a good location in green South Delhi, a fantastic terrace and some wonderful memories, was getting too small, too uncomfortable and too far away from my office to stay in. Power cuts were problematic and the apartment was on the top floor with very poor insulation, so it would get hot as a furnace in summer and colder than a fridge in winters.

Instead we moved to a much bigger and much more comfortable apartment across the street from my office in the satellite city of Gurgaon. I have never looked back since, but for Nitoli it was a bit tougher to take the leap from city to Indian suburbia. But I think we both agree that this was the right step.

Good times with friends in our old apartment
