Another new year night party ended in shame. A newly wed N.R.I. couple were assaulted, disgraced, and harassed by drunk hoodlums, with the police downplaying the incident as a "little thing", only to backtrack by mass outrage, aided by a couple of photographs taken by journalists who were on the spot. So far it is normal. There's nothing unusual about it. It is in tradition with the recent trends of crime against women in Mumbai in the last few years. The indifference of the police is also with keeping with the state police's track record, in tackling crime against women.

One thing that was troubling my normally useless and always free brain for quite sometime, was the absence of the proverbial 'Howard Roark' from society these days. I somehow felt that the modern generation, of which I, persuing my career is willy-nilly a part, is less smelly, and idealistic than the previous ones. Living up to such fictitous assertations, I was foraying into the uncharted chinese puzzles of changing psychological patterns of humans when fate aided by a train journey, made me tumble upon the ultimate revelation.
