A Visit to Mantra Park View Dhayari

1, 1.5, 2, & a 3 BHK Flat for someone who can't afford to own a flat:


Mr. Swapnil Pharat, Assistant Manager - Sales, & Ravi Karandeekar

I visited Mantra Properties' Park View at Chavan Baug in Dhayari on Sinhagad Road. It was Saturday, the first day of 'Sabse Saste 7 Din' offer. Around 1130 am, I reached the site sales office. I was the first visitor of the day. I left around 1 pm.

When I was leaving, I saw a young couple climbing a small mountain on which the site office was located. I felt very sorry for the young couple. Because, I was almost convinced that flats in Mantra Park View are for those who can not afford to own a flat.

Why do want to own a flat when you know well that you can not afford to buy one? I wanted to ask the couple. But couldn't ask because I was already late for my next appointment.

Hey young couple! You are too young to own a home. If you work & save for a few more years, you will be able to own a real home. Not something which looks like a home. Why rush and buy inferior property today? You know? Getting a home loan is easy - but repaying a home loan is tough. It drains you financially. It affects your entire life. I went on talking with myself.

An inferior property! Ravi Karandeekar, how can you say that a flat in Mantra Park View is an inferior property?

Don't you remember what Mr. Swapnil Pharat, Assistant Manager - Sales, said?

Swapnil said - "Park View is a premium property!"

Oh! Yes!! Swapnil also told me that most of his flat buyers are in their 30s. Hard working salaried class who are eligible to get a home loan to buy a 37 lakh rupees 1 bhk flat - 48 lakh rupees 2 bhk flat & 65 lakh rupees 3 bhk flat with a car park!!

If these guys can really afford to buy - why would have Mantra Properties offered a rent till possession - 5,500 for a 1 bhk - 8,000 for a 2 bhk & 9,000 for a 3 bhk flat? I asked myself.

It means that Mantra Park View is about the people who are in their 30s.
Who may be considering themselves as inadequate human beings
- who couldn't own a home in their 20s.

If I don't book today - I may never become a homeowner in this life
- this thought may not be letting them sleep.

Defeated souls who are trying to prove that they are not losers.
Ready to book whatever looks like a flat.
Glad to become a slave of a bank for life.

But, this is psychological!
Based on the popular self defeating belief.
Homeownership is an ultimate proof of a successful human being.
Which is not true!

That's why the brochure & website of Mantra Park View does not have floor plans.
The message is clear - you are not buying a flat.
You are buying a false feeling of homeownership.

What say you?

Why do most of us buy a home?

If we were really buying a home to live in it - we would have bought a home in which we can stay comfortably. Right?

Please, share your views in the comments.

A Visit to Naiknavare Avon Vista at Mahalunge

Be Sensible. Read the Environmental Clearance of Avon Vista:



Experience of visiting the site office of Avon Vista was wonderful.

I enjoyed the walk from Wakad Flyover to Avon Vista.

For a moment, from the bridge, I admired beautiful Mula River & enjoyed the music played by the trucks, buses & cars on Mumbai Bangalore Highway.

Near the entrance gate of Avon Vista, Ms & Mr Black Crow came out of their nest on the high tension tower to greet me.

"Location....location.....location....a home should be close to your workplace, by the river & next to national highway....Right, Mr. Ravi Karandeekar?," welcoming me, Mr. Black Crow said.

"How can you speak English?," I asked.

"We are from Stanford on Avon!," Ms Black Crow said.

"Oh! Welcome to Pune!! Stanford on Avon means - a hamlet in the civil parish of Stanford in the Daventry district of Northamptonshire, England?," I asked.

"Yes! The same place!!," Mr. Black Crow said.

"Do they have black crows there?," I asked.

"No. Not at all! We look like this because we believe in 'When in Rome, do as the Romans do'," Ms. Black Crow said.

"Good idea!," I said.

"Thanks for the appreciation! Put it into practice too. Start thinking like Hinjewadi IT Engineers and stop saying - 'Don't buy a home in Mahalunge Gram Panhayat'," Mr. Black Crow said.

"Really! Should I stop saying that?," I asked.

"Yes, certainly," said Ms. Black Crow.


Mr. Sumit Nathwani, Manager - Sales & Strategic Alliances, Naiknavare Developers, gave me detailed brief about Avon Vista. He explained the layout & concept on the presentation drawings. Showed me the film. Day & night view on the model. And the mockup flat.

Avon Vista has 20 story 6 towers on podium. Under the podium there is a two level parking. That's why the podium is a vehicle free zone. So the podium has landscaped gardens & play areas for the children & parents. At the river end, there is a clubhouse which will have a swimming pool on the top floor. After that there is a green zone till Mula River. Which is used for sports activities. Open spaces, landscaped gardens, play areas & recreational sports activities is the main attraction of Avon Vista. Sumit told me.

At present 2 building are open for booking - A 1 & B 1. A 1 has all 2 bhk flats. B 1 has 2 & 3 bhk flats. 20 stories, 2 lifts and 4 flats per floor. Every flat has a balcony cum terrace - partially covered & open to sky. Unique design. I liked it. Oh! Yes!! A part of the surface of the building will have vertical gardens!!! Interesting idea.

"Sumit, don't you think that the room sizes are too small?" - I asked.

"Budget! You have to consider the budget & lifestyle of the flat buyers!!" - said Sumit and added that - "By the way - we have received good number of bookings - mainly because - today's flat buyer believes that...

........a home should be close to your workplace, by the river & next to national highway...." - I completed Sumit's sentence.

"Right!" - said Sumit.

"Sumit, how come you speak Marathi so fluently?" - I asked Mr. Sumit Nathwani.

"Because we believe in - 'When in Rome, do as the Romans do'" - Sumit said.

"Good idea!" - I said.

"Thanks! Put it into practice. Start thinking like Hinjewadi IT Engineers..................." - said Sumit.

"Did you say - "Stop saying - Don't buy a home in Mahalunge Gram Panchayat" - I couldn't hear what you said after - "start thinking like Hinjewadi IT Engineers" - Whatever - let me confess - I thank you for entertaining me so well - generally - those salespersons who know me as a blogger - don't entertain me at all - somehow they try to get rid of me - I admire you for treating me so well - I said & asked - "Sumit, Can I take your photo?"

Sumit obliged. While shooting his photo - I saw two birds in the green vertical garden behind him.

For sure, they were Ms & Mr Black Crow from Stanford on Avon!


I came out of the site office of Avon Vista. It was almost dark. I started walking towards Balewadi Sports Stadium bus stop.

"Walking alone on the dark service road is so boring! Can I give you company up to your bus stop?" - I heard a voice.

"Oh! Sure!!" - turning back - I said.

"Aren't you the same yellow tube - I saw near the entrance of Avon Vista? How come you know my bus stop?" - I asked the yellow tube.

"I know all about you!" - Yellow Tube said.

"How come?" - I asked.

"I know because I am always in the know. I know not only your actions & places but I also know what you are thinking at this point of time!" - Yellow Tube said.

"I am not thinking. I am only walking" - I said.

"Yes, of course, you are walking. But in your subconscious - you are wondering - at the time of possession - 'why is Avon Vista collecting 'Water Charges' along with the maintenance charges - at the rate of Rs. 4.5 per sq ft per month + taxes for 24 months?' - Right? - Yellow Tube said.

"Exactly! How should I address you? Miss or Mister?" - I asked.

"Miss sounds good. You are also wondering - 'why there is no terrace area mentioned in the area statement of Avon Vista?' - if the terrace area is included in the carpet area - then - what is the actual carpet area of the flat? - In fact - you are very upset because - you consider that - hiding carpet area of a flat is a crime - right?" - Miss Yellow Tube said.

"Yes! You are right. I am very upset about the both things - water charges & carpet area" - I said.

"When you were with Sumit in the site office of Avon Vista - you didn't raise objections about these issues. But you are going to write about it in your blog on Avon Vista. Right?" - Miss Yellow Tube said.

"Right! I fail to understand - how can intelligent - educated - Hinjewadi IT engineers.....

"be so stupid!" - Miss Yellow Tube completed my sentence.

"Right! Can't they read the environmental clearance of Avon Vista before booking a flat? Don't they know that for the last 8 years in Maharashtra it's mandatory to disclose carpet area of a flat? Even RERA insists on disclosing the carpet area - Isn't it? How can human beings so ignorant? I keep on wondering every day" - I said.

"But you don't wonder about me - you don't wonder about Ms & Mr Black Crow - you don't wonder about Sumit - why you only wonder about Hinjewadi IT Engineers?" - Miss Yellow Tube asked.

"Because Hinjewadi IT Engineers are not like you. They are like me. Human Beings!" - I said.

"Are you sure?" - Miss Yellow Tube asked.

"Of course, I am sure. Mass production of Humanoids is a distant dream. You are only experimental" - I said.

"Not really! That's what all of us were trying to tell you - "start thinking like Hinjewadi IT Engineers" - the days of human beings working in Hinjewadi are over. Humanoids have started taking over their jobs. Slowly & secretly. All these projects in Mahalunge, Sus & Maan Gram Panchayats are mostly booked by us. And for us basic urban infrastructure has no meaning. Because we are the infrastructure. That's why we are appealing to you to start thinking like us - otherwise you will lose your readership!" - Miss Yellow Tube said.

"You are not 'appealing'. You are 'threatening'. This is terrible. I am going to expose you on my blog. Neither the builder nor the humanoid can stop me from educating the flat buyers in Pune" - I almost shouted.

"Who is trying to stop you? I have already written & published your blog - 'A Visit to Naiknavare Avon Vista at Mahalunge'. Along with your photowalk & embedded Environmental Clearance of Avon Vista. Exactly in your style. Read it in the bus. And remember - if you don't change - along with the readers - your blog might lose the author too. Bye, bye & take care" - sending a flying kiss towards me, Miss Yellow Tube said.

A Visit to Darode Jog Properties' Liviano at Kharadi

Liviano Kharadi - Possession June 2017 - April Fool’s Day 2017 Prank or Promise?:


You know what? I saw an ad of one housing scheme on my own Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog which claimed that possession will be given in June 2017.

June 2017!

For the last few months many builders are trying to somehow complete their projects before May 2017. Before RERA is implemented in Maharashtra.

Before RERA is implemented in Maharashtra in the month of May 2017 - all unscrupulous builders are rushing to loot Hinjewadi & Kharadi IT guys by offering pre-launch bookings.

How come this builder is not aware about the importance of May 2017 in Pune real estate market?

How can some builder promise to give possession in June 2017? I asked myself and saw the name of the project - Liviano.




Liviano?!

Liviano...sounded familiar. I have heard this word. I may have read this word. May be. Long long ago.

Since it's the name of the housing scheme in Pune - Ravi Karandeekar, you may have written about it. Why don't you search your own blog?

Brilliant idea! I complimented myself & really used a search box on my own blog to search my own blog.

You know what I found?

Long long ago - in 2011 - I have written a blog about the launch of Liviano!

You know who was the builder?

Darode Jog Properties!

You may not have heard this name - Darode Jog.

Even I came across this name after a long time.

But I will give you a clue. Ready?

IPL

No. It's not about a game gentlemen play. It's about a game builders play.

Which game?

Of course a dirty game. I have written about it too. Got it? No?

EPL - the name of the dirty game is - Exclusive Pre Launch!

Yes! The same builder!! Darode Jog - who came out with EPL Offer in 2015.

Yes, most of the people who didn't book in EPL don't remember this builder.

But those who booked in EPL - they also have tried their best to forget about Darode Jog.



Now the picture was clear. The ad was about the possession of 2 BHK, 2.5 BHK, 3 BHK & 4 BHK Flats in Darode Jog Properties' Liviano at Kharadi.

Possession in June 2017!

How is it possible? It was launched just in 2011!

OMG! How stupid I am!!

Look at the date! It's April 2017!!

Ravi Karandeekar, it's nothing but April Fool Prank!!

That infamous advertising agency in Pune may have pulled the prank on you to prove that it doesn't have only a criminal mind but it can be funny too.

Agreed! The ad was funny..........Liviano Possession June 2017........I made a fool of myself by taking it seriously. You won - I accepted my defeat & forgot about it.



But, the other day, while coming back from Keshav Nagar, I couldn't resist myself from visiting Liviano at Kharadi.

Long time no see.....how come you are here.....I thought you forgot me.....the lady salesperson at Liviano, happened to be my old friend, welcomed me with open arms.

I am here because you were in my dream.....I said. What could I say?

Good for me....What can I do for you? My lady said.

Show me all. Satisfy me. I said.

Sure. Follow me. She said and took me to the site.

Work was really going on at Liviano!

Can I? I asked.

Sure. Feel free. She said.

I took a lot of photos. To make sure that I was not dreaming.

But I didn't ask her about the possession in June 2017.

I found it an inappropriate question. Like asking - "Love Me - Love Me Not"

Am I right? Let me know in the comments, please.

If you don't believe in me. Have a look at these photos.
