Food & Shelter

food... yes its truly a choice and in india, we are blessed with the inumerable options we have... taste/spice/price !!

(shel*ter n. 1.a. something that provides cover or protection, as from the weather. b. a refuge, a haven. c. an establishment that provides temporary housing for the homeless)

shelter... !! used to be taken for granted that this would always be provided for magically as a kid... never heard about 'rent' and always thought the process of shifting houses was only for different job moves. Ofcourse, this is because having grown up in zambia, my dad had a great contract in terms of lifestyle, where accomodation, fuel and education were all taken care of by the company he worked for...
Today, it's the single most sought after thought by people in all demographics of society... 'where is home'
It seems that, a 'home' of your own, is getting constructed further and further away from the cities, in the hope of newer cities beginning and older ones expanding... even though it still seems like a few lifetimes worth of work in order to own the place you 'really' want.
We saw another place today morning, and yes it was nice, yes it was far, yes it was independent, but... it was still too damn expensive !! Is real estate ever gonna get reasonable? Are there people who complete their EMI payments whilst still working and fit? Will we still be searching for a house at the end of the year? Will i simply start charging 'a lot more' for my concerts?
hmmm... there's a thought...

Hi Raman,
Perfectly agreed on your stand regarding the unreasonable i do know whether to say as unreasonable everybody might have their own reason behind their charging however the cost of flats in chennai especially is sky rocketing.
Please keep on writing more blogs like this if possible please do write to me at visves1@gmail.com

hey, this is Prashanth from Chennai. I kinda agree with your stand. we bought an apartment in 2005 and it's price has tripled now! The real estate bubble here is going to burst soon. So don't worry, you won't have to charge more per concert!
