Treat your builder like a stray dog

Builders are nothing but filthy animals:

Saturday & Sunday mornings I visit projects and talk to the flat buyers. I enjoy talking to the flat buyers who are living in their new projects for more than 6 months. Because now their honeymoon period is over and they have become completely aware about the reality. In these meetings I learn a lot from these awakened flat buyers. And you know what? They pay me for learning from them!

"When those who want to buy a flat in Pune - pay thousands of rupees for my advice - why do you pay me for learning from you?," once I asked.

"Because we can reach them - those who want to own a flat - through you! We don't want them to make the same mistakes we have made!!," one awakened flat buyer in some project told me.

"Mistakes - for example?," I asked.

"Most of the people who want to buy a flat in Pune are under the impression that a builder is their best friend. The builder is the only person who gives you permanent shelter. The builder is the only person who can fulfil your dream of homeownership. We assume that our best friend - the builder - knows how to develop the housing project. That's why when we book a flat - we consider only 2 things - the location & the property price. But after booking a flat - by the time you get flat possession - you realize that your builder is neither a builder nor a human being - your builder is nothing but a filthy animal!," the awakened flat buyer said.

"A filthy animal!?," I said.

"Yes! Like a stray dog!! Tell me - who becomes a builder? The one who can not become anything. The one who has no employable skill set. You better go and make them aware that they should treat their builder like a dog. Your builder will pretend that he is a lion. But, from a gunda at the corner to the commissioner, everyone in Pune knows who your builder really is - a stray dog - and they treat him like a stray dog. Only we - naive flat buyers - think that our builder is a human being - a businessman. Stop it. Treat your builder like a stray dog. Train him...reward him....reprimand him....," the awakened flat buyer said.

What say you? Do you treat your builder like a stray dog? Share your views in the comments.

  1. Dear Ravi,
    Atleast in this blog, I strongly disagree in comparing builder with a stray dog. Even a stray dog remains loyal if you feed him.
    So request you Ravi not to insult dogs, cats, mouse, crow etc. by comparing them with builders.

  2. Most of the dogs are loyal....
    And most of the builders are cheaters....
