i think another way of segmenting society is along following lines- high-class, middle-class and no-class. Tongue doesnt necessarily mirror economic divisions of course, just values. middle class values are generally good, but often come with hypocrisy, which is why i think high-class is preferable any time. does not just mean high-class living, but high-class thinking. can be garib, but can still have gee-for-jiyo and pee-for-piyo kinda thinking, no? Tongue LOL

btw, what is the debate? whether aish is truly middle-class TongueLOL , or whether middle-class is superior? Smile

Once I am in an Airport, seen a well known person(sorry I can not tell his name), we can not be classified him in upper middle class but real high class. A small kid of five or six accompanying his mother(an ordinary person ) unintentionally touched him, the words come out of his mouth was unthinkable (all foul words of English came out). Surely, this is high thinking and better than middle class hipocrisyWink 

Another time, in a supper market a high class gentleman slapped a sales boy for a simple reason of touching him while rushing for something.  It was not a delibrate one, but the manager scold the boy, this may be  also a way of high thinking and high livingWink.  

 can be garib, but can still have gee-for-jiyo and pee-for-piyo kinda thinking, no? Tongue LOL

that's high class thinking? lol. see that's what i meant. cant confuse high-class living with high-class thinking. i thought i had it up thereWink

in any case, i dont think it works well to project from rare exceptions we can find with everything. it's like holding up a rogue or two, a hitler, anytime someone suggests the world is generally good. not goodWink

Families shown in serials are anything but "middle class"...they are rich families and people mocking at them (in the serials) are Super Rich.

Lagta hai ki serial waalo ko pata nahin hai ki ek middle class family kaisi hoti hai (waise mujhe yeh lower class/middle class/upper class terminologies se sakht nafrat hai).
