Some news from my end, FINALLY! The building deal has almost got through. We have received the cheques and are supposed to vacate by the end of this month. Considering the frequency of the posts here, I guess my next post would be from our newly rented apartment. 🙂 INSHALLAH!
The actual turmoil has really started now. Four people and 4 different kinds of opinions. Consensus?? Naw! We have stubbornness issues you see.. The group of 4 has been divided into a team of 2. Me n Ram and Ma and Pa. Me n Ram do the running around Bombay searching for a decent nest to park our butts temporarily for around 18-22 months, while Ma and Pa will decide on the budget and what needs to be shifted and what needs to be disposed off. So the Hunt has begun.
We are not very hung-up on where we want a house, but we are very adamant on how the big the flat should be. So its ok if we are getting a bungalow in Kasara but it better be a bungalow. Traveling?? Oh well.. And I’m like WHATEVER!
So weekends are getting spent hunting for a decent flat in the suburbs. I’m using the word hunting again and again since, it looks so. One flat in a minute is seen and scrutinized by atleast half a dozen family. I’m not exaggerating and God knows that. Its a freaking sellers market.
And who said flat are getting sold at “rate/sq. ft”? Yesterday, one family bought a 1 BHK flat for 50 lacs! I dont have any clue of where the actual location is, what the area is.. All that I know is that the location in somewhere in Kandivli. And the deal happened right in front of my eyes, with Ram in tow. Our jaws just dropped and its still there at the broker’s office. So there goes our dream of buying a nice 1BHK in Kandivli. Have always loved that place. Cant afford a bloody 50 lac house people. And when some silent dreams break, they dont make noise but they just tear your heart and hopes apart. Well…
Anyways, I dont want to talk much about all this here, since there’s no point removing my frustration here. Im just praying that something comes up and we all leave this place with our sanity intact. Over and out!
PS: The hunt in this sun and heat is only making everything all the more funnier.
