Ravi Karandeekar is invited for a cup of tea!
Since, I wrote a blog "Invite Me for a Cup of Tea", I received a couple of invitations. I accepted a few and some are still pending. However, I couldn't write about any "tea party". In some cases, the property buyer was afraid of his builder. Some times, I couldn't put the experience in words. Both excuses made me sad. But, I didn't give up hope.
And look what happened! Last Saturday evening, Sunil called me. He said, "Ravi, I want to invite you for a cup of tea. I have taken possession of my flat in Sparklet - Megapolis Smart Homes 1. Tomorrow morning, around 11 am, we are performing a pooja. Please, come over!"
"Thanks, Sunil! I am honored!!," I said and immediately accepted his invitation.
Very precisely Sunil told me about himself and how he is reading my "Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog" for more than 2 & 1/2 years.
Referring to my blog on Xrbia, Sunil even made fun of me by reminding me that he is not a home-buyer but a real estate investor!
"Whatever! I am coming!!," I said.

On Sunday morning, I read my first blog on Sparklet - Megapolis Smart Homes 1, Hinjewadi Phase 3. Saw all the photos on Flickr. Became more and more excited to visit Sunil. To reach in time, I even felt like requesting Mr. Hemant Kulkarni, V. P., Pegasus Properties, Developers of Megapolis, to give me a lift. But, I realized that it would be unromantic to travel with him.
"What a romantic Sunday!," I said.
"Certainly, it is. Look at the drizzling rains...pleasant weather...keep that aside and come to bed..," my wife said.
"I was talking about tea with Sunil at Megapolis Smart Homes 1!," I tried to explain.
Sunil has come down from Delhi, his hometown, to take possession of his flat in Sparklet - Megapolis Smart Homes 1, Hinjewadi Phase 3. Which he has booked when he was in Mumbai. First for MBA and then later for a job. Over the last two and a half years, Sunil has visited Megapolis only three times. For booking, for Bhumi Pujan and for the registration of agreement. From booking till possession, Sunil told me that, Megapolis was sending him regular updates.
This time, Sunil, now working in Delhi, is in Pune for a few days. To complete all formalities of possession. To check & rectify defects - if any - in his property - like a broken tile. To have the necessary fixtures & fitments - like fans, lights, kitchen cabinets etc of his choice. To take possession of his first property - the 2 BHK Flat in Sparklet - Megapolis Smart Homes 1.
Today in 2012, in his twenties, without any financial help from the parents, Sunil is a home owner, only because of Sparklet - Megapolis Smart Homes 1 - 1 BHK Flat for Rs. 16.87 lakh & a 2 BHK Flat for Rs. 25.34 lakh. This is romantic.
Unfortunately, not a reality anymore for every educated, salaried, young person working in Hinjewadi. Today, most have given up the dream of owning a home at or near Hinjewadi. Those who haven't given up - are taken for a ride by unscrupulous fly by night operators.

For the first time, I didn't go to the office of Megapolis. Instead of that, from the bus stop, I straightway walked to Sparklet - Megapolis Smart Homes 1. Today, I am here to meet my reader. My reader has invited me for a cup of tea in his new home. This is romantic. I told myself.
At the main entrance of Sparklet - Megapolis Smart Homes 1, very proudly, I told the security that Mr. Sunil, owner of flat number 1202 in A5 building, has invited me. I was expecting a salute. But the security guard only showed me the way.
Everyone in Sunil's home was happy. Loving. Satisfied. Sunil was cool. He introduced me to his fiancee, Harneet. And to his mother. Did Sunil say that she was his mother or Harneet's mother? I was confused. So, I went on observing both the ladies and got more confused. So, I decided that - she is their mother. Who had come to Pune for the first time. And was very happy for Sunil & Harneet.
Sunil showed me his 2 BHK Flat. Finishing of the flat was good. Obviously there was no furniture in Sunil's flat. But it was not empty. It was full of good vibes.
Sunil introduced me to his & Harneet's relatives. But this time I didn't get confused. Now, for me, all of them were only human forms of love & affection for Sunil & Harneet.
"Happy?," i asked Sunil.
"Very much. I feel like I have become my father. I did all what I saw him doing when he purchased our home in Delhi!," Sunil said.
We went on the terrace of Sunil's building. Looking at Sunil, Harneet & their mother enjoying the green hills in the drizzling rains, I realized that someone raised in a good family always goes for a good home.
Sunil, you are not an investor. You are romantic good boy. Who is romancing the home. Someday, for sure, you will own a home in your hometown - in Delhi!
Thanks for inviting, Sunil!
