Today, it would be wise for the father-son duo to sleep with an eye open.
They say: ‘You’ve made your bed, now lie in it’. This proves especially true in the case of this father-son duo, who, having given thousands of others sleepless nights, are now tossing and turning in their current small quarters.

The story goes that around a decade ago, when the senior businessman was decorating his mansion, he shopped at a furniture store in South Mumbai. He is said to have bought a Rs 30-lakh bed and the store had to depute four staffers to verify the payment using cash counting machines. Of course, that was in better times.

Today, it would be wise for the troubled kin to sleep with an eye open.
