On the 25th of May 2008 while we were in BR Hills (Our 3rd visit) along with my wife's sisters and my co-brother I got a call from my brother informing me about a house which has come up for sale. This house was just 2 playgrounds away from his. When he told me about the price (Am not revealing the price) I straight away said a stern NO! Can't afford it and very costly for a 2 bedroom North-East corner house. My brother asked me to have a look in any case. I reluctantly agreed. We agreed to meet on the 28th of May to check out the house. Meanwhile my dear brother and my SIL spent one entire day to come up with a 6-7 pages document which explained the pros & cons of buying that house. That document is the reason why today we are a very proud owners of this house.

After reading the document we proceeded to check out the house. We had seen some 4-5 houses in the same locality and never liked even one. We went with no expectations. As mentioned earlier this house was on a North-East corner site and diagonally opposite to house was a playground.


Elevation of the house


As we entered the house we could sense a positive vibe which was missing in the all the other houses. The house was as per vaastu. I go for vaastu for scientific and not for religious purposes.

The entrance was facing East. The ground floor consisted of a Sunken living room, a dining room, a very spacious Kitchen, a small bedroom and a common Bathroom.

As you climb up the stairs you enter into a Family room identical to the living room below.

The master Bedroom is huge with big wardrobes and an attached Bathroom. There is also a huge spacious balcony over looking the playground.

Further up is the Terrace with a Solar water heater and two sintex tanks.

The house was very neatly maintained (Hard to believe it is around 6 years old). The floor was of normal tiles and the looked good. It looked like the painting was recently done. It has one borewell and one sump for the Cauvery water.

We all fell in love with house. We needed to do some calculations and hence commented that we liked the house very much and would get back to them shortly after figuring out if we can indeed go for it.

After a long long calculations and assumptions we decided we are going to give it a try. After some negotiations we finally agreed upon a price (No! Not revealing the price).

We entered into an agreement on the 6th of June 2008. We needed some time for getting the necessary funds.

After four months we somehow managed to get the required funds and decided to go for the registration on the 3rd of Oct 2008. The registration went on smoothly and we got the keys and all the other documents. The very fact that we now are the owners of a lovely house hasn't yet sunk in.

Finally we are the proud owners of a house...:-)

A note about the owners:

A very lovely couple who has taken a lot of pain to ensure that the house was coming up as they wanted. They have paid great attention to every minute details, the effort of which we are going to enjoy now. Another good thing about them was they never looked their age. We could never imagine that both of them were 50+. My mother till yesterday thought that the lady of house was just 35 years of age.

I often have the weirdest dreams and the worst thing is sometimes I remember the dream frame by frame as it happened. Yesterday night was no different.

I dreamt there were lot of people inside our compound and most of them were peeing on the walls of our house. I saw two young boys peeing in the place where I park my bike. I catch them and give them a sound thrashing. We have a mango tree inside the compound and a shed besides it. One of the young boys runs and gets on top of the shed and tries to pluck some mangoes. I yell at him telling that he might get electrocuted since the overhead wires from the electric pole were very close to the shed. He doesn't pay any attention to what I say and goes about his mission. As predicted he slips and falls on the wires and there is a loud explosion, sparks and smoke. We all are stunned by this and feeling very sorry for the guy. We all presumed that he was dead. But after two mins the boy gets out of the wire unarmed as though nothing happened. I was at loss of words...how the hell can he survive that after being on the wires for 2 mins!!!

I got the answer in my dream itself. The Karnataka Electricity Board (KEB) had just switched off the power (Power shedding) to our area seconds after the boy fell on the wires.

That boy went home safe and bag full of Mangoes... :-)

KEB Zindabad!!!!


The logic behind the dream

1. We indeed have a Mango tree and a shed besides it.
2. One of my cousins while plucking mangoes with a help of a thin aluminum rod touched the electric wires with the rod and there was a huge explosion and sparks. Luckily he let go off the rod he was holding..if not I dread to think what would have happened.
3. No logic can explain the number of people inside our house and why they were peeing on the walls

After reading

mamtanaidu's post on broken English I thought I will post this article.


You Think English Is Easy???

 

Can you read these right the first time?


1) The bandage was wound around the wound.

2) The farm was used to produce produce .

3) The dump was so full that they had to refuse more refuse.

4) We must polish the Polish  furniture.

5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.

6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

7) Since there is no time like the present , he thought it was time to present the present .

8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

10) I did not object to the object.

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row .

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.

20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?

Let's face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell?

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all That is why, when the stars are out, they are visib le, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.

I was in Hyd for 3 days watching movies, eating out and doing nothing else. This is why I love going to Hyd. Loads of spicy food and movies to match. This time had Biryani in Paradise, Chinese in Haiking and break fast at Chutneys.

The Dark Knight

I did not watch Dark Knight until the 14th of Aug. The reason? I wanted to catch the action on iMax in Hyd. And Man!!! the wait was worth every second of it. Heath Ledger was excellent as the Joker. I liked the scene where he comes out of the hospital dressed up as a nurse destroying the hospital. His body language was too good.

Movie/Performances: 4/5
Experience in iMax: 4.5/5

The movies I saw in my co-brother's home theatre system (He has a 42" Plasma TV with Yamaha home theatre system).

- The Red Dragon (Prequel to "The Silence of the lambs") I did not know that Hannibal Lecter existed!!!!
- Casino
- The Edge
- Gone in 60 seconds
- Backdraft

Why won't there be a scarcity of water if we waste water like this? This is the case every alternate day when water is released to the residents?

Where and with whom can I lodge a complaint?
