Understanding Mr. RK

R.K. Malhotra — London, October 2020

Two Sundays ago, my barista at Starbucks handed me a venti in lieu of my usual request for a grande dark roast.

Nothing special,’ I replied. ‘Just catching up on a bit of work.’

Andy shook his head almost disapprovingly. ‘You work a lot! You’ve got to start having some fun on the weekends.’
