Exclusive Heights

The headline in today's paper read: The Height of Exclusivity:Mukesh Ambani builds highest compound wall in town.
So? Is it such a big thing? We all know the kind of (un)wanted attention the 'stars' get in the dreamland, Mumbai. If you have ever gone on a Bollywood house spottin,you would have seen the amount of crowd that can always be seen standing outside the houses of the rich and famous. If you have ever been around any of these.... Jalsa or Prateeksha (Bachchan's), Mannat (SRK), Galaxy Apartment (Salman Khan), Palazzio (Hrithik), Yash Raj mansion, the Kapoor bungalow (Rishi and Ranbeer's abode), Aashirwaad (Rajesh Khanna), Saif-Kareena-Karishma (they have apartments in the same building), Rekha's bungalow....you would have noticed the crowd of fans and even the paparazzi, with their camcorders always on and recording every happening and every car going in and out of the buildings...So is it such a wonder then that these 'famous' personalities would want to preserve some of their own privacy for themselves? What all these 'personalities' share with each other is their 'high' compound walls....and understandably so.
Now even the Mumbai Traffic Police has issued warnings to tourist buses that they are not allowed to stop in front of Jalsa, and have banned them from entering the lane that leads up to Palazzio....
Since they cannot control the crowds outside, let these 'stars' control the views that the peeping toms standing outside their house would otherwise have been dying to get .....
