Hi Friends,

I had been to the FAIRPRO '09 Fair.My Impression after seeing, is that prices are stagnating for all ongoing projects and builders are trying hard to hold them up.

Prices are 10-20% lower for new projects in the pipeline and for ready to occupy flats.

The discount offered at the stall was very less and were in the range 150-500 Rs/sqft max.

For the benefit of fellow members I am posting the project/price details of some of the properties.

  • Most of the educated people all over India already know a common language. Remaining people knows lot of words in it already and can communicate in broken sentences. Upcoming generation are all being educated in that language. That language is called English. South don't need to learn Hindi, North don't need to learn Tamil.. lets use English. It will also help all over the world. If anyone needs to learn additional language like Hindi, Bengali, Malayalam.. that individual will decide based on his/her needs. Here is what Anna Durai said:

    "A man had two dogs – a big one and a small one. He wanted his dogs to go in and out of the house freely without him having to keep the house door open all the time. So he built two “trap doors” – one big trap door for the big dog and one small for the small dog. Neighbors who saw these two doors laughed at him and called him an idiot. Why put a big door and a small door? All that was needed was the big door. Both the big and the small dog could use it!


    Indian government’s arguments for making Hindi the official or link language of India are as ridiculous as the need for a big door and a small door for the big dog and the small dog. Indian government agrees that English is needed for communication with the world, and every school in India teaches English. Then the Indian government says that all of us should know Hindi also in order to communicate amongst ourselves within India. I ask, “Since every school in India teaches English, why can’t it be our link language? Why do Tamils have to study English for communication with the world and Hindi for communications within India? Do we need a big door for the big dog and a small door for the small dog? I say, let the small dog use the big door too!”

  • Since I contributed to all this lively discussion, let me confess that I know ...

    Tamil, Telugu (lived in Vijayawada, Secunderabad, Warangal), Kannada (living in Bangalore and make it a point to speak as much in Kannada as possible), Malayalam, Hindi (of course, having lived in Hyderabad, Gorakhpur, Jamshedpur, etc), some Bengali (lived in Cal).

    Also learnt some Russian, German and Japanese when I was interacting with people from these regions in my projects, though I hardly remember any of it now.

    One neat trick I used to have in my workplace is to maintain a deadpan face and mind my own business, when people speaking one language get together and provide all kinds of gossip and opinions about everyone else in the office, completely unaware that I understood everything that was being spoken! :) Sometimes I got some unintended feedback about myself as well :D. Its always useful to have most people think you don't know any language except English. Lots of fun when it happened but I'm too old for that now.

    If you have the experience of many languages early in life it helps later on to pick up languages easily.

    But the most productive languages for me have been Fortran, BASIC, COBOL, C, C++, Java, Javascript, Perl, Ruby, Python !!! :D

    Wherever you are, try to learn the local lingo as quickly as possible. It is always helpful sometime in life.

    cheers

    why are you so short-sighted - Think globally. It will be more feasible for English to propagate in Hindi/Tamil society rather than the other way round because of the sheer numbers difference.

    In 1947, how many people could speak in hindi. Ever since Independence, the Govt of India had cleverly pushed (like Hindi is a must for central govt jobs,..etc) pro-Hindi propaganda thereby misinforming the common man that Hindi was the "national" language, when clearly Hindi was only mentioned as an "official" language in the Constitution of India.

    Before 1947, there is no country called India. When we ruled by British, English was not forced upon. Now (H)indian rulers trying to impose Hindi, which is unacceptable. For us, both english and hindi are foreign languages. Think what happened to Pakistan when they tried to impose Urdu. Bangladesh (Land of Bengalis) was formed.

    Indian govt should avoid hindi in train tickets, bank slips,milestones ..etc,(only 2 languages, english and local), we can save lot of money and trees.

  • No one can avoid English now.

    Even the villagers in remote north india feel knowing english is advantageous and prestigious. All hindi channels programs and Hindi films also portray if a man speaks good english he is viewed superior.

    Whether in Tamilnadu or Bihar or Orisaa or punjab, there is a craze among the common public to admit their children in English medium schools.

    Whether we like it or not, after few decades every young indian will be more proficient in English than any indian language including hindi

    Based on this argument ask all Muslims to convert to Hinduism since Hindus are at a greater Number and sheer Number difference. The Majority forcing the minority will be come like Pakistan. India is a diverse country and all languages and religions need to be respected.

  • I think I was the one who triggered this discussion. But you guys proved my point. Why Chennai is not going to be friendly to rest of Indians. Not just Hindi speaking people even kannada speaking people, malayalam speaking people. Everyone here has well defended the reason why Tamilians dont need to speak hindi and hindi shouldn't be forced upon them. Point well taken. But then you see my point. There is so much of angst/pride/animosity or whatever you want to call. This angst/pride/animosity is faced by even innocent outsiders who step into Chennai. There is some sort of boiling anger amongst locals when they see outsiders. This is probably fueled by politicians or whoever with vested interests. .Every Tamilian I have met has made it a point to mention to me about this "Injustice to Tamilians". I mean, one person was also so sympathatic towards the plight of SriLankan Tamils that is it very clear that Tamil is a bigger unifying factor than the country. This is clear case of Politicians evoking patriotic sentiments so that locals dont find fault in them. This thing happens in Pakistan(make India the enemy so that politicians can always keep the country poor by have a national goal to hate India) and even in North Korea, make South Korea the national enemy.

    But end of the day, India and South Korea are much more prosperous than Pakistan and North Korea, respectively. So dear Tamil friends, what is the lesson from this ? :)

    You have learnt nothing from the discussion.

    You have just retained your ignorance and twisted prejudice.

    No amount of education can change your ignorance, prejudice, Chauvinism and lack of respect for others.

    Andhra & Kerala people are part of Tamil society for very long & peacefully live here. They mostly do business here, very successful and everyone knows it. May be some dumb tourists like u seems don't know that fact.

    Telegu, Kerala or Kannada people don't come here and ask us to learn their mother tongue. Neither Tamils do it in other states. But many dumb north Indians like you do it. After seeing your reply, I am 100% sure you guys will never improve and remain dumb. One goes to a foreign place should know English or learn that native language. You not ready to do either of that, but asking the foreigner to learn your mother tongue... this is just rude & idiotic.

    is sun TV and Jaya TV are the Tamilians you have ever met? i offer you a coffee time with me if you would like.

    Yes there is sympathy to srilankan tamils,you will feel sympathetic too if you know what happens there. do you think canada, UK, norway, australian premeires are tamils?
    David cameroon went to the place of war without notifying srilankan govt, to see the reality and condemned srilanka for the genocide.
    i would even ask central govt not to send Indian army to srilanka, but i will say why would we(India) should interfere with another country's internal issue.

    Please think beyond Tamil language when you are quoting srilankan issue.

    may be as clear as mud. why do you get confused between language and patriatism, language and friendship etc.

    two examples:
    1.AR Rahman is a welll respected musician who has given a great work "Maaa Tuje salaam" on the eve of India's 50th independance celebrations. certainly a glimse of his patriotic feeling.
    He spoke in Tamil when he was awarded the golden globe and oscars, the highest feat any indian Muscian has ever achieved. wouldnt it be stupid if some one calls him unfriendly and not patriotic for speaking tamil in a global stage?

    2. if you still dont get it, do you think a deaf and dumb who dont understand/speak any language will be unfriendly?

    Originally Posted by revhappy

    this clearly portrays your confusion between patriatism and language. why would you ask this question to Tamil friends alone? i see no reason for your question.

    Indians who live in Tamilnadu are very proud of their mother tongue for genuine reasons.
    Dont assume yourselves that Tamils hate others, come and see if you want to know the reality.
    when some people try to impose ideologies when they are not desired, Tamils standup and tell "please dont do that".
    you better understand or atleast dont try to inject divisiveness, leave that to politicians they may try it again even though they know they already failed.

    in short if you are asking us to learn hindi we will say "it is difficult for us and please dont ask us to do that" we may sometimes ask you to learn tamil, if you hear that then you should understand that you are repeatedly asking us to learn Hindi. the real intent asking you to learn tamil is to give you a glimse of pain what we go through when you ask us to learn Hindi.

  • @ice,

    The only exposure he has with tamilian's is from his fellow work permit labours in Singapore. Probably that experience coupled with ingrained racism is what makes up his attitude.

    You can't expect such labour work permit holder to know tamil people of the caliber of President, Deputy Priminister & Foreign Minister of Singapore who are all Tamils.

    If he is from Singapore then he should know about these,

    Look who are the two brave Indians rewarded by Singapore govt recently,
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gpiCqWeLnT8

    Singapores deputy prime minister is a tamilian.

    Tamil is one of the official languages in Singapore, train announcements and sign boards must have tamil.

    Now I am able to understand why he has started this topic, he is feeling insecured and jealous or probably He wants Hindi as official language in Singapore!

    Revhappy, try to support your fellow Indians, if you cant at least keep quiet.

  • You guys are just proving my point again by justifying yourself :)

    I have had lots of Tamil friends and I get along with them very well. I am neither north Indian nor south, kind of in between. Actually I get along better with south Indians than north Indians.

    My only point is all tamilians I have met have told me at some point or the other about how the rest of India forces Hindi upon them etc etc. There are lots of other states out there who also get marginalized when you have such a big country, but I don't hear this from others. I mean its okay don't talk Hindi, its fine. Lot of other states also don't talk Hindi and once you go there you will have to learn their language, Kerala for example, Karnataka also other than Bangalore, you will struggle if you don't learn kannada. But for some reason many Tamilians have this chip on their shoulders. Anyways I don't want to argue any more. I have said what I had to say.

    You stated Tamils are not friendly in your previous post, now you say you have lot of tamil friends and you get along with them better than North Indians. ;)

    Listen, We don't care where you were from north, south, east or west, you don't need to explain yourself.

    The reason why Tamils are strong when it comes to language is proud for the mother tongue and nothing else. never again talk about patriotism and friendship of tamilians again. you never understood them.
