All of us, at some point or the other, have come across self-acclaimed Pundits who have happily taken moral policing as a service to mankind. Goes without a say, it is not only annoying but can implicate(and in many cases have)serious repercussion. And I was wondering if it is only me? Or the world is categorically cruel towards bachelors/spinsters? Turns out, not! There are more.
In one such incident, Mohit Agarwal, a resident of Palm Grove Heights, Gurgaon took to Facebook to make an exposé of the ordeal he had to go through. While restrictions on permitting or entertaining friends of the opposite sex are not news, the guardians of the galaxy have now problem with two-wheelers. Yes, no kidding! Read his entire post here.
Hello All, Wanted to narrate to you a harrowing experience that I faced at PALM GROVE HEIGHTS (Ardee City, Sector 52, Gurgaon).
1) Because I want to expose the double standards of Gurgaon’s MNC “family” crowd living in gated societies.
2) Because no person in future should accidentally rent in a house in Palm Grove Heights.
3) Because I want you to spread this as much as possible.
That’s all folks, and get married soon, and buy a car, and be a man – because a bachelor doesn’t have equal rights! And a woman ! And a person from another country! And a two wheeler driver!
So, after this post, I got many messages from tenants staying in this society describing their experiences. Attaching the screenshots. So this was not a one-off case with just me, but a concerted effort by the management.
I shot a mail on 29thOct, to Global, APAC and India heads of Colliers describing the incident and the complicity of the Colliers estate manager.
The Colliers estate manager – Sanjay Chaudhary- rang me up today (30th Oct) , saying he was being pressured by the retired DG. Amrik Singh Nimbran to enforce such rules.
But honestly, Sanjay Chaudhary himself was calling the judgement that day. Nimbran came into the picture next day when he came wanting to bash me up because of my SMS and call to him.
Anyways, Sanjay was apologetic (or appearing to be) and said such incidents won’t happen in future.
Amidst demand for reservation and regressive nations, the lawmakers of the society will have to do a lot more than just flyers! And with such progress, where exactly are we heading? Only time will tell.
