I think more people should read this.
Though I think cost of living part is downplayed a bit, it’s still true. I stayed in alone RT Nagar in a 1bhk for 6k rent, though everything is cheaper there, it comes with it’s own annoying problems. Now I stay in Kalyan Nagar for rent of 9.5k but I like the life here.
Also, there’s no mention of 10 month advance amount, which I think is a huge barrier for most people, and why they choose staying in a Pg instead.
