In your writings you have been kind enough to share your journey to present since your MBA. Somehow i am inspired by your experience. I have been writing blogs for 2-3 years now. Sir, if possible you can share your journey in continuity since your MBA. Like you joining and then left the job. After that Crossword time etc. I would love to know after that how you got into journalism and then initially full time journo and then as now.

    Dear Vivek

    I have been reading about your posts on Real Estate through the last year. I agree with your views that RE is extremely overpriced across all markets and we need to see a significant dip in prices. The new RE Bill though a decent start has ducked several RE reforms. The most striking miss is on the way builders cheat on the super built up area, when the actual carpet areas for most projects are shrinking are falling under 60%. Consumer education is also key here. More than 95% of the home buyers are gullible and fall for the common amenities

    The regulation should also cover what constitutes carpet, built up and super built up area and pricing should be based on carpet or built up areas with additional amenities and areas that goes into super built up priced differently

    You should write about this Vivek.

    Regards
