Aamir, Shahrukh and others, just another piece of musical instruments in a song composed and conceived by Media

By: Sachin Gupta | Twitter

Media has done it again.
Media has composed a song again

A song titled ‘intolerance’. People only know the title of the song and not the lyrics. But the song is so well conceived and composed by media that everyone is humming it. Humming it without even knowing the lyrics. Media has organized a great orchestra and musical instruments to compose this song titled ‘intolerance’.

Media has done it again.
Media has composed a song again.

Orchestra party includes who’s who of big political parties, Bollywood stars, writers, scientists, scholars, and great public acting as the chorus on social media.

Media has done it again.
Media has composed a song again.

Everyone is humming the song titled ‘intolerance’. It’s a blockbuster. It’s topping the charts. It’s everywhere from drawing rooms to office canteens, from sports grounds to club houses, from institutes to recreational grounds. Everyone loves the tune. Everyone is dancing. It’s even being played in discos. Everyone is loving this new song titled ‘intolerance’.

Media has done it again.
Media has composed a new song again.

Media did not care to put the lyrics in front of everyone because had they done so, the song would not have become a massive hit. They just brought out the lyrics when song has become the frenzy of the nation. What a calculated master stroke by Media.

So, where are the lyrics (facts) of the song called ‘intolerant’? Here are the lyrics (facts). Picture attached*

In many other instances too, media has composed the songs without revealing the lyrics. And when song becomes a massive hit they secretly reveal the lyrics. But before that, round table debates are organized 24x7. The torch bearers of media instigate people to take up sides. One versus the other. Gang war happens on Twitter.

Aamir Khan and Shahrukh just happen to fall in the trap of media and became the part of orchestra and joined the song. When song is being continuously played day in and day out, how can any sensitive person keep out of it…no way. They also ended up becoming ‘flute’ and ‘drums’ in the song called “intolerance” conceived and composed by media. The song reached a crescendo status. Yes, that’s what media wanted. Blockbuster hit, anything less would have been a dampener.

24X7 TV channels are else would they survive? So called ‘5 stars’ journalists are the toast of the town, why wouldn’t they compose a song every now and then?

Non existential and irrelevant politicians such as Sangeet Som, Mani Shankar Aiyar, Adityanath, Azam Khan, Salman Kursheed, Arvind Kejriwal, and many others of the same tribe jump in the song and play their part. Mike and camera are put in front of them. One plays harmonium, one plays guitar, another one plays saxophone…..all of them do their bit by taking this side or that side based on their political affiliations.

And of course, people are humming it too on social media thereby acting as chorus.

Everyone is now involved and everyone is now humming the great song “intolerant” conceived and composed by media.

Media has done it again.
Media has composed a song again.

What are the kinds of properties that can and can not be transferred?

Author: Sachin Gupta | Find me on Twitter

The property transfer is a complicated process and therefore one must be thoroughly aware of the laws and practices. When we talk of property transfer here, it means, an immovable property that is already registered with one person. The person may choose to sell the property of transfer the property.

One should note that property transfer for an under construction property with the developer is a different and private process. The developer transfers the property from one buyer to another buyer on the request of first buyer. Normally, developers charge a fee for the transfer.

However, in this section, we are focusing our energies on property transfer for a property that has been completed and is registered with the registrar department. This property transfer between any two parties is governed by the “Transfer of Property” Act, 1882. Both of these parties need to be alive to carry out this kind of property transfer. In case, one person is not alive, then, succession laws as per the religion of the dead person are applied for the transfer of property.

So, what kind of properties can be transferred and what kind of properties that cannot be transferred? Find below in the detailed document:

Want to Buy Real Estate? Consider the Top Real Estate Companies in Delhi NCR

Whether you are willing to buy a residential or commercial property in Delhi NCR, you need to be very cautious. Some real estate companies in Delhi NCR are developing projects, both commercial and residential, owing to the rising demand for ownership as well as rental properties. But remember, investing in real estate means you’ll be putting a huge portion of your hard earned money into it, so you need to consider some factors before finalizing the property you want to buy.

You should buy properties that enhance your quality of living along with fulfilling your home-ownership dreams. To make sure that you invest your money in the right property, here are some factors that you need to consider:

1. Find a Registered Real Estate Developer

This is the most important factor while choosing a real estate property in Delhi NCR. There are many instances where buyers have invested in real estate properties that have never materialized. Many people who invested in properties almost five years back still did not get possession of their properties.
So if you want to invest safely, you should always look for registered real estate developers who work according to a certain code of conduct.

2. Work with Reputed Builders

This is another important aspect when looking for top real estate companies in Delhi NCR. Always carry out background checks of the real estate developer you are willing to work with. Refrain from working with developers who have been involved in various legal issues.

3. Location

Location of a property, whether commercial or residential, is very important. If you are willing to buy 3 BHK spacious apartments Gurgaon, make sure it is located close to hospitals, schools and work area. If you are willing to buy commercial property, make sure it is located close to the city center and the main transportation points.

4. Check the Exact Carpet Area, Amenities and Facilities Offered

Most of the real estate developers would quote prices based on the total area of an apartment, but you should insist on paying the price depending upon the exact carpet area. Apart from the carpet area, you should consider the amenities and facilities offered. Check whether there are 24hour water and electric supply, ample parking space, generator backup, etc.

5. Registration Fees

Apart from the actual price of the property, you will also have to pay registration fees, which depends on the value of the property. So, the registration fee for a 3 BHK spacious apartment Gurgaon will be more than that of a 2 BHK apartment.

A Final Thought

Buying property is one of the biggest investments in one’s life, so you should be extra cautious so that you don’t get conned. Always work with top real estate companies in Delhi NCR who are registered with some real estate organization or the government. The right decision will bring back a lot of benefits while a small mistake can make you repent for the entire lifetime.

Summary: Buying a property is one of the biggest decisions that you make in your lifetime, so to get the best deal it is necessary that you work with the top real estate companies in Delhi NCR and invest in the right kind of property.
