I lived in a country like this, Saathiya type of day routine, and can totally relate/understand.
My family had a huge Pantry/Storeroom, my mother would once a month and get dry good groceries and load them on the back of the pick up truck for our driver to take them home and put them away in the pantry.
We also, i was a student and growing up off course, but the other ladies of the house would wake up, cook breakfast, or the cook would make toast and tea for us kids, we would go to school and our dad and my brothers would go to the office, my mum would arrange the lunch either make some things and the cook would aslo prepare other things for lunch, we would come back from school and eat lunch my dad and brothers would also eat with us and return back to work, as work and home were very close, then they (women in the house) would watch a bit of tv, film or go to town/shopping, return to prepare dinner for all of us again.
The reason, i have told you this, is to inform you it's true people do live in this way. Because when i was growing up i never knew anybody that didn't have this type of lifestyle like ours.
For outings at the weekend, we had a beach house where my mum would take us, or we would go in the back of the pick up with the driver, and our dad would drive my mum and sister in laws. I come from a big family 6, and now my brothers and older sisters are married and have kids too, so we have a really big family but those who are now living abroad absolutely hate this fast fast life of Europe and US and want to return now.
