I had come here from Delhi with my boyfriend because I didn't have the guts to come alone. So my boyfriend would tell me, 'Sharam kar, tu bombay naukrani banne aayi hai. Yeh karni aayi hai? 'Woh cigarette ke paise mujhse maangta tha aur kaam karke dinner kamaa rahi hoon toh mujhe aise bol raha tha."
