Kensington or Kenzington or Kengiston or Kingston??

Kensington – a nice word?
Yes!! 😎

Is that a place?
Yes!! 😦

May be everywhere! Some instances are below! πŸ™„

Kensington is a district of west and central London, England within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. πŸ™„

Kensington is a neighbourhood in the United States city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is between the Lower Northeast section of Philadelphia and North Philadelphia. πŸ™„

Kensington is a neighbourhood in the center of the New York City borough of Brooklyn. It is the area south of Prospect Park and the Green-Wood Cemetery. πŸ™„

Kensington is a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) within Hiranandani Gardens, Powai. Powai is dreamt to be soonΒ designated asΒ a sub-urb in Mumbai! πŸ™„

Kensington is the Building from where I work! πŸ˜€ It is an SEZ by Government of Maharashtra. I am yet to find the advantages of an SEZ in terms of business as SEZ’s are most sought places by an IT Company! πŸ™„ πŸ™„ Lot of IT firms are operating from here and my dear technical friends can flock this place with their Resumes… :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Ever since the SEZ was ready after construction, it has been into controversy. 😐

1 – the high slope that u need to walk into after Security Check. Guess that’s the HIranandani Style!! πŸ‘Ώ πŸ‘Ώ
2 – the flooring on the Podium. Barely gives a grip in rainy days. I have been unluckily lucky to witness most 2-wheeler
Β Β Β Β Β Β  skid here, even at a parking speed of less than 10kmph.
😑 😑
3 – the tiles popped out in less than a year, on the podium!! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰
4 – the Gate Security has been increasingly irritating, with every new day!! 😳 😳
5 – you need to have a separate Identity Card for entering the SEZ apart from your official one! 😯 😯

The List can be equivalent to that of population of Mumbai, or to exaggerate – to the population of India. πŸ˜• πŸ˜• Every new person visiting the SEZ has a unique problem & gets an equally unique solution as well. ❗ ❗

Sometimes locating this place can be the toughest part of the Treasure Hunt, especially if you are here with a resume! You ask some for Kensington, you might be embarrassed to know you are looking for a wrong one. The uncle would say, β€œbeta, Kensington nahi hai, shayad Kengiston hai.”

Imagine you are working on a weekend at office… πŸ‘Ώ Β Hungry kya..? 😐 πŸ˜₯

Call up a food-point ➑ order a meal ➑ keep waiting for it ➑ call up a couple of times more to check order status ➑ you get to know, your Order is on the way to reach you ➑ finally you get a call from the Food-Point, asking your location again!! πŸ‘Ώ 😯 😐

When you ask for the Order Status, he would tell you that the Delivery Boy has just reached Kingston and unable to locate you… 😯 😯 You spend another 5 minutes explaining that you work in Kensington. 😐 The Delivery boy needs to come further ahead to locate Kensington. 😑 After some more wait, he finally comes there and you get the much awaited meal. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ But the point was, you mentioned the location as Kensington. Did it anyway get encoded as Kingston, which the voice got converted into electro-magnetic waves? No idea… 😐 😐

I was once scheduled to reach office early, by 7 am… 😎 😎 Amidst the scuffle for the office cab, I had to finally make it my own way to work @ 6:30 am in morning… πŸ™„ πŸ™„Β After changing an Auto at Mulund Checknaka, I was into my final auto to work… πŸ˜† πŸ˜† As I enter into Hiranandani Gardens, I ask him to drop me at SEZ. He was almost on the right track and I sensed a mistake ahead. πŸ’‘ πŸ’‘ I took control and started guiding him once I passed DMart. ❓ ❓ Finally while I got off and was paying, the auto driver shocked me. ❗

Driver: agar aap Kensington bhi bol dete toh bhi main aapko yahin drop karta…
Me: 😯 😯 normally sab SEZ bola toh idhar drop karte hai. And Kensington bola toh Kingston pe drop karte hai. Isiliye maine SEZ bola.. 😐 😐
Drive:Β koi baat nahi, aap pahunch toh gaye… πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

And I realized, I was on time. Was expected at 7 am in office and clocked desk at 7:25.! 😎 😎
Thankfully the delay was understood and associated right with the cab-scuffle… πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

But wondering how many more names would be substitute to Kensington? πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†
