Sorry folks, I am not able to get online nowadays.....
Airtel uses the tag line, 'Everywhere'...but it is not there in the area I have shifted. Seems, they have no plan as well, to extend their services to the area I live in. Courtesy them, I have been away from Internet, and from you people for a fortnight now. Away from Internet, didn't seem to me, to be away from the whole society, as normall few people around me, tends to feel in similar circumstances. Because, I tend to rely on other modes of communication when one fails me.Well, everyone does...hehe!!
My new abode has certain pros and cons, compared to old one:
Better ventilation and natural lighting
Almost no electricity cut
Good connectivity with Entire NCR region,
and Great Public Transport availability(Metro Station at around 2kms, Noida & Ghaziabad, both-5/6 kms, Nizamuddin-2km)
Since on 2nd floor, 3rd one bears the direct Delhi heat and cold
No Landlord interference (One of the most imp. thing)
Entire Market, within 0.5 kms, and open till late night
Proximity to Nizammudin, New Delhi and Old Delhi Rly Station
Access to Terrace all the time
Not much Privacy,
Neighbours seem more interested in my Visitors
Not as much good locality
No Parking facility; there is one Rana Ji of Rana properties whose shop is on ground floor, he keeps on intimidating, and he keeps photos of his with PM, CM, and who's who in his office to aid him in doing so. I wonder if he is Boman Irani of Lagey Raho Munnabhai.
No Single cupboard in entire home, not even a single wardrobe
Neigbours keep on fighting amongst each other, and throwing squeezed up mango skin and seeds on stairs.
I almost managed helping myself from falling
smaller area compared to last flat
Last heard: One of my acquaintance taking a shop on rent in Greater Kailash Market for Rs. 25lakh/per month. And he protested when I said, its super costly. He says its reasonable. Mc' Donald in GK pays Rs. 40lakh/per month. Moreover, he told me about a Surd Landlord who wants Rs. 60lakh/per month.
My both eye balls seemed to spring out of socket, and revolve around a bit. When I thought 60Lakh x 12 months= Rs. 7.2 Cr.With one year rent, I could live my entire life happily, by investing them wisely.
No wonder that in Delhi NCR, I see property dealers office proclaiming "Flat hi flat", more often than I see, any Pan shop, or any Grocery. Last counted on the by lanes near my home, one single road 200-250mts in length has 16 property dealer shop.
The flat I took, was given to me by a property dealer himself. He charged me one month rent as commission. And He is the landlord himself! :-
It seems, their fathers bought a flat, a land and they were spoiled by the sudden richness which came their way, after Delhi's Development. So now, they buy a TV, install it in their office, hang a map of Delhi, and whole day wait for people of who they would suck out money. Then, rent out their own flat, then get it vacated, and get it rented again. Huh! Further, get assured that you running out of luck, when the flat you finally liked after watching the dozen others(in my case, around 60-70 OMG can't believe myself), is being said to have another two dealers in between, and the base dealer got to it via-via another one. They might charge you twice as much commission.
I finally took this flat, because my pockets were getting heavier by day with visiting cards of dealer, with no proper result. .....
lots of more to write, but will save for some other time.......
P.S.: Sorry Guys, I am not being able to read your blogs.....allow me some days....
