Very simply put, LIFESTYLE is a way of living . It is determined by your geographical location. It is also defined by your ethnic background. It is shaped by your cultural leanings and your educational qualifications . Mine is determined by the city of Mumbai, which has been home to me for over 4 decades now. It is shaped by my family and is influenced by my education and cultural background. So what’s so different about the way I live? The lifestyle of every home maker is different with each day bringing unique challenges . Sometimes my life runs smoothly, while at times it is a circus. Thankfully ,I have a laid-back attitude to life and can see the humour in most things.
