Diwali 2015 with Satish Magar of Magarpatta City & Nanded City Pune

Festival of Books:


Capital in the Twenty-First Century. The Modi Effect. Working Out Of The Box. Diwali Gift from Mr. Satish Magar

Every Diwali, Mr. Satish Magar of Magarpatta City & Nanded City Pune gives me most precious gift. Gift of books. Thought provoking books on the important current topics. Written by accomplished writers. This Diwali, Satish Magar gave 3 books. The Modi Effect. Working Out Of The Box. Capital in the Twenty-First Century.

Capital in the Twenty-First Century is written by Thomas Piketty, professor at the Paris School of Economics, & translated in English by Arthur Goldhammer. It's Financial Times & McKinsey Business Book of the Year.

As per the book jacket, Piketty (in Capital in the Twenty-First Century) shows that modern economic growth and the diffusion of knowledge have allowed us to avoid inequalities on the apocalyptic scale predicted by Karl Marx. But we have not modified the deep structures of capital and inequality as much as we thought in the optimistic decades following World War II. The main driver of inequality - the tendency of returns on capital to exceed the economic growth - today threatens to generate extreme inequalities that stir discontent and undermine democratic values.

But economic trends are not act of God. Political action has curbed dangerous inequalities in the past, Piketty says, and may do so again.

Sounds quite optimistic! Right?

In Working Out Of The Box, Aparna Piramal Raje, the book jacket says, gives us an intimate peek into the lives of forty progressive leaders by exploring the connections between their workplace and their working styles. Capturing quirks, individual style of working, motivation and leadership traits, and tracing the patterns exhibited by these leaders, she unravels their defining qualities and explains how they reflect in their workplaces. Divided into four sections - personal energy, organizational capital, brand values, environment and sustainability - the book provides insight into what makes these CEOs tick & how they manage their most valuable assets.

I couldn't resist myself from reading the profile of Babasaheb Neelkanth Kalyani, Chairman & Managing Director of Bharat Forge. In the last century, before specialising in Pune real estate advertising, I was closely associated with Kalyani Group. For a couple of decades Bharat Forge was using corporate logo designed by ex-partner Prakash Thombre.

The Modi Effect - Inside Narendra Modi's Campaign to Transform India - is written by Lance Price. Former BBC correspondent & 10 Downing Street communication expert. Price was granted exclusive access & was given complete freedom to tell 'Modi's Rise to Power'.

If you are wondering - how did a 'chai wala' who sold tea on trains as a boy become Prime Minister of India - you must read this book. The book 'lifts the lid' on a whole new box of tricks, where message management & IT wizardry combined to create a vote winning colossus of awesome potency.

What say you? Isn't this gift precious?

Thanks, Mr. Satish Magar, for an enlightening Diwali gift!

What is so Marvelous about Yezdi Motiwalla?

A Messenger to Pune Property Buyers:


Yezdi Motiwalla https://www.facebook.com/motiwallay

We must take sides. 
Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. 
Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. 


Like thousands of property buyers in Pune, Mr. Yezdi Motiwalla became a victim of an unscrupulous builder in Pune.

However, unlike thousands of victims of the unscrupulous builders in Pune, Yezdi refused to live a life of a victim.

Yezdi refused to suffer silently. Yezdi went on sharing his experiences & views on Facebook. Only to create awareness among Pune property buyers. Only to educate Pune property buyers.

The other day, Yezdi invited me to his rented flat.

Yes, Yezdi does not own a home. He may not be able to own a home in Pune. At least, not the kind of a flat he had booked. Certainly, not at the same location.

Retired, single & in early fifties, Yezdi Motiwalla is facing huge life challenges. But these challenges have fired up his spirits.

The builder could forced Yezdi to cancel his flat. But the builder could not defeat Yezdi. Now, Yezdi is standing for every property buyer in Pune.

I want people to benefit from my tragedy. I want to share my experiences effectively. I want to reach maximum number of property buyers and teach them what I have learned. Yezdi Motiwalla told me.

Okay. Motiwalla wants to become Messiah - Savior - Liberator. I said.

Messenger. Motiwalla said.

Okay. Messenger Motiwalla. I said.

Yezdi opened a big hard cover journal and started telling his story. The first page was, of course, the booking form - Yezdi has filled when he booked the flat. Yezdi has collected & documented his entire experience of buying a home.

"You have done a marvelous job! Motiwalla is a Marvelous Messenger!," pointing at the table full of journals, I said.

And then, we sat and planned video lessons - based on the journals of Yezdi Motiwalla. Lessons about tips & precautions while buying a home in Pune real estate market. Which you can see soon. Very soon.

Amura to market Whitefield at Sus!

Time Bound Bookings & Time Bound Flat Possession
- The New Real Estate Business Model:


amura - performance driven digital marketing company

The performance driven digital marketing company Amura Marketing Technologies Pvt. Ltd. - www.amuratech.com - is going to sell 1 BHK, 2 BHK & 2.5 BHK Flats in Whitefield at Sus Pune - upcoming residetial housing project by Balaji Alliance Developers LLP. Joint venture of Kedar Vanjape Developers Pvt. Ltd. & Shree Balaji Group.

Amura gives time bound results. In 60 days, Amura is going to sell 50 flats in Whitefield Sus. In the current market, this is huge. 50 bookings at the launch will create assured cash flow for the construction and Whitefield Sus will be ready for possession at the committed date.

Yes! On the day of launch, 1st December 2015, Whitefield Sus is committing the possession date. 1st December 2018. 36 months from the date of launch. What if the possession is delayed? Self Penalty! Whitefield Sus will pay you 10,000 rupees per month.

Besides committed possession & self penalty - Whitefield Sus - is offering 'rate protection' to the flat buyers. Means, in future, if Whitefield reduces the property rate - the reduced rate will be applicable to the old bookings too.

With Whitefield at Sus, Amura & Balaji Alliance, are going to change the real estate business. Together, we are going to change the way properties are priced, sold & delivered. Mr. Kedar Vanjape said.

The other day, Kedar was briefing Amura's team. Thanks to both of them for letting me video record it. Have a look. You will feel like - you are visiting the kitchen before the party starts - you are visiting the green room before the drama - you are visiting the dressing room before the cricket match.

Diwali 2015 with Amit Gandhi of Gandhi Properties

Seasons Mall Walking:


Amit Gandhi of Gandhi Properties

This Diwali, in pursuit of materialism, I took mall walking. I started with Seasons Mall at Magarpatta.

Looking at the stuff displayed in the shops - I kept on walking nearly empty & long passages. Whenever my carving level suddenly shot up - I went in the shop & touched the stuff. Sometimes, I took photos of the stuff I found irresistible.

At the end of the mall walk, I realized that my carving level for possessions, comfort & money has substantially increased. The shirts, shoes, watches, bags, laptops in the shops have assured me loads of happiness.

To celebrate my successful walk, I visited Starbucks. When I paid 195 rupees for hot Tall Cappuccino, I felt that I was at the right place.

Mall walking & Starbucks are going to put me on the right path. Spend more. Own more. Enjoy more. And most important - if you don't have enough money to do all this - borrow more.

If you follow this path, Ravi Karandeekar, you can become a better adviser. You can understand a first time home buyers' temptation to own a home - by borrowing huge home loan - which he will find difficult to repay. You will never tell anybody not to risk his life for some worthless property.

If you follow this path, Ravi Karandeekar, you can become a better blogger. You can understand a builder's business plans & marketing strategy. You will start believing that "greed is good". The end justifies the means. You can use bad or immoral methods as long as you accomplish something good by using them. Then, you will stop criticizing the builders. No builder will threaten to harm you. Who knows? Sachin, Manish & all would become your best friends!

Happy with the thought that this Diwali I have found the right path - I decided to enjoy my 195 rupees hot Tall Cappuccino.

"Starbucks, thanks for inspiring & nurturing my 'human' spirit," lifting my 195 rupees hot Tall Cappuccino, I said.

When I was about to take a sip, I realized that I should thank Satish Magar too! By developing Magarpatta he has changed the life of farmers & villagers. And by developing Seasons Mall, he is changing the life of educated salaried urban population.

OMG! Since I have taken this path - my heart is full of love! I have started admiring everything - including the builders!!

"Are you Ravi Karandeekar?," someone asked me.

"Yes! I am," getting up I said.

"I am Amit Gandhi. Gandhi Properties. I like your blog," he said.

"Builder! I though you are an IT Guy!!," I said.

"Yes. I don't look like a builder. I don't live like a builder. But I am proud of being a builder. I value my profession. I believe - I am in a noble business of providing housing. Fulfilling basic need of human beings. I respect the home buyers desires & try my best to fulfil them. I mostly sale ready to move in homes. Fully charged with positive energy," said Mr. Amit Gandhi.

"Ready to move in - is good. What is - charged with positive energy?," I asked.

"I am more than a builder. I am into spiritual healing. I am in art & spirituality. I believe in ethical business. Even as a builder - I believe and practice ethical business. If your mind is pure - you can do any business without indulging in corruption. To remove corruption - first - we have to purify our minds. You know? We all, including those corrupt bureaucrats, are born with pure minds," said Mr. Amit Gandhi.

"Yes. I completely agree with you. Mind matters. I was here for the same!," I said and took his photo.

"You are doing good. Keep it up!," said Mr. Amit and left.

I sat down and took a sip of my 195 rupees hot Tall Cappuccino. It was cold and tasteless. Amit Gandhi has spoiled it. Coffee, evening & everything.

CBRE Pune Prop Fair 2015 - Worth Visiting!

Pleasant Side of Hell:


CBRE Residential Services Team

I am Pune real estate blogger. I try to visit every property exhibition. Because, visiting property exhibition is a pleasant experience. Only pleasant experience.

On Friday, I visited CBRE Prop Fair 2015. Obviously, visitors were in short supply. Still, I found CBRE Prop Fair more pleasant than the last property exhibition. (Which one was that? Was it Sakal Vastu at Pandit Farms? May be.)

CBRE Prop Fair 2015 is 'property salespersons' event. The property salespersons have organized it. The property salespersons in the stalls were running it. Obviously, the enthusiasm level was high. There were positive vibes all around.

I enjoyed the visit. You will enjoy it too. Do visit CBRE Prop Fair 2015.
