Opulence, I Has It

"Opulence, I Has It"
Princeton, New Jersey
I spent the weekend at the home of my aunt and uncle, down in New Jersey. That's when I had my first taste of true American affluence. Living in a largely 'Indian' neighbourhood, they're surrounded by mansion-like houses, much like their own. 

Jersey, one of the wealthiest states in America with  the largest percentage of millionaire residents in the country, is also home to a large populace of Indian diaspora. The wealth generated by these Indians in the US is evident in the fine touches of grandeur that reeks from each of their homes and in the luxury sedans that line up their driveways.
