After a gang of hoodlums in Chinchwad burned down my car,
I realized that I should buy a home where my daughter, wife & car would be safe - Girish
|Sakal Pimpri Chinchwad Today 3/23/2017|
I am not here because I am working in Hinjewadi. I am not selfish. Distance from my office is not important for me. For me the most important thing is the safety & security of my family.
This was Girish's reply to my question - "Are you working in Hinjewadi?"
Hoping to meet some intellectually weaker section of Hinjewadi IT Engineers, I was waiting near the site offices of Saarrthi Skybay, Pristine Equilife & Royal Serene - located behind Balewadi Stadium in Mahalunge Gram Panchayat.
Almost half a day had gone, but I didn't find any exceptionally stupid Hinjewadi IT Engineer.
So, all my hopes were on this couple, who had entered the site office of Royale Serene.
"How can someone go for hunting a home - carrying half asleep 4 year daughter on a scooter - in this torturous heat?," I asked myself.
That day, I have seen many couples & young guys bent on destroying their lives by booking flats without waiting for implementation of RERA in Maharashtra.
But this couple was unique.
"If this couple continues their search like this - they may not survive to book a flat. I must talk to them now," I said to myself & waited for them.
"If you are not working in Hinjewadi then why are you in Mahalunge?, " I said & asked his permission to video record it.
I am here because some hoodlums burned down my car. Today car was their target. Who knows what they would like to destroy tomorrow? I have a small daughter. I felt very insecure. Threatened. Frightened. Living in flat in Chinchwad Gaonthan would not be safe for my daughter. I decided to shift. Decided to buy a new flat. Where there would be safety & security. Watchmans. CC Tv cameras. Reserved covered carpark.
My father came down from the hometown. He felt the same. I should not continue living in Chinchwad Gaonthan. I should look for a housing society with a proper compound wall and security guards. He offered financial assistance too.
This incident - burning down my car - also told me that for the safety of my family I can't rely on Pune police. And fire engines of PCMC. A project - a gated community - should have all these facilities.
So, Saturday I visited a property exhibition. Shortlisted a few projects. And today, Sunday, we are visiting these projects. I visited Equilife, Skybay & Royal Serene at Mahalunge. Going to visit Austin Park at Tathawade. We are considering a few projects in Ravet too.
We are not interested in Kiwale. Because it's away. I have never gone beyond Mukai Chowk.
Chikhali - Moshi is downmarket. Closely associated with the blue collar workers from industrial belt of Bhosari & Chakan.
So, I am considering location close to Hinjewadi - Baner - Balewadi. Upmarket locations.
Even if the project is far away from my office at Pune station I don't mind. After all - who knows? - in future - I may get a job in Hinjewadi. Important thing is the project should have a proper security & reserved carpark. For my family. For my car.
"Are you going to sell your flat in Chinchwad Gaonthan where you feel insecure to live?," I asked.
No. I am trying my best to keep it. As a second property. Investment property. For my daughter. Investment in her future. Investment for our life after retirement. Said Girish & his wife.
I thanked Girish for sharing his horrible experience on a video & wished him all the best for a safe & secure place for his wife, daughter & car.
What say you?
If you have a daughter, please, tell me - how are you protecting her in Pune - where crimes against women are high & rising.?
Who will protect your family & property - Pune Police or the watchman of your society?
