The Quint: On Labour Day - what ‘Memsahibs’ would say if they were ‘the Help’

A nose ring wearing, saree clad, tray carrying naree, or a lightfooted Cinderella cheerily wielding a duster.
Agency ads spell out a fantasy maid who will greet us in the morning with coffee, send us off to work and clean up our trail of towels and pyjamas, while we return to a house with the fragrance of peas pulao wafting in from the kitchen. Basically a loyal sprite with pleasing looks who puts you above all else, who appears when you need her and vanishes when the work is done.
Only, our Indian middle class has got so used to having her ( or him) around that they don’t want the vanishing part. They want her there all the time, any time of the day or night.
