Do you know him?

I'll share the story of Mr. X today.

He is a charming and hard working guy. He rushes to office by 8 a.m. and is back at home only by 9 p.m. He uses his time on his way home by typing mails on his BB. Office stress doesn’t bother him. He just needs to get a smoke to think through it.

Often, he gets late so he eats before leaving for home. Mc Donald's, Dominoes, Pizza hut and coffee day are nearby so he generally goes there. Cheesy burger and pizzas are his favorites.

Weekends are for fun, so he goes clubbing. He drinks and dances like there's no tomorrow. His philosophy of life is "you have only one life, so live it to the fullest".

One day Mr. X got a heart attack.

He's 35 years old.

Do you know who this guy is?

He's the face of new urban India. Fraught by sickness and anxiety.
