Keys. You’d think by now they’d have found some sort of replacement for these too easy to lose bits of shining, toothy metal. Utterly essential, yet absolutely infuriating, if you aren't possessed of basically superhuman organizational powers the chances are you spend a good portion of your life hunting for, fiddling with, losing, replacing and cursing – keys.
There are basically few things worse than losing your keys - car keys, house keys, office keys, suitcase keys - whatever their immediate purpose without your keys you cant access part of your life. When this happens and you need to unlock or relock the doors, latches and cases we can’t seem to exist without it’s time to head to Mr Mint. Years of key-loss experience has taught me that they are the city’s most reliable key-cutting option. While there are plenty of cheaper roadside options – the reliability of these joints leave something to be desired - I too often end up with misshaped and dysfunctional bits of steel that don’t turn the locks they should.
At around Rs. 100 a key Mr Mint, which has outlets in Liberty Plaza and Majestic city, does a fast and reliable job of giving you back access to sealed off parts of your life. The small premium you pay is worth it as you shouldn't need to haggle, go back, complain and get things cut a second time.
