They could be Bahane or Kahaniyan as per the movies. But actually they are thousand. Yup, a live in help I interviewed today demanded 10K as salary! Said he could do Chinese and continental food. I had to refuse, so I asked him to make sushi, he could not do that, thank God, so rejected him on those grounds!
