Riches to rags: Ex-editor offered shelter by Mumbai couple
Mumbai: Sixty-five-year-old Sunita Naik, former editor of Marathi magazine `Grihalaxmi`, who was living on the pavement outside a local gurdwara here for the past two months, has been offered shelter by a couple.
"I no longer live on the footpath, outside the gurdwara. I have found shelter with the couple - Gregory and Christine Misquitta - at their Vile Parle home," Naik said.
The Misquitas learnt about her plight from media reports and offered help, after being informed that she was staying at Versova outside the Aram Nagar Gurdwara for the last two months.
"I am happy here," she said.
The couple brought her home along with her Pomeranian dog, her constant companion for the past 12 years.
It is difficult to gauge from her present state that she was once a rich and independent woman who owned two apartments in Worli and a bungalow in Pune.
"I once had over Rs 50 lakh in my account. I don`t know where it all went. I suspect one of my employees usurped my money," she said.
