Which is the best brand?

Which is the best brand?

I went through a business magazine today, its about the best brands in India. What they have done is that they have decided the top brands without segregating the industry. Like they have given that Maruti is No 1 brand in INDIA and follows, Lux, Times of India and many more companies. Don’t you think that there has to be a proper way of segregation of each brand?

I personally feel that brands should be ranked in their own Industry. I cannot compete the brand called “SKODA” with “INTEL” but I can compare “SKODA” with “MERCEDES”.

Well, I guess it’s a nice idea to compare the brands lets do it our blog right away.

Is Bajaj getting over Hero Honda?

Being into the Real Estate consultancy in Gurgaon, I have come across many companies in IMT Manesar, Udyog Vihar, Pace City and Infocity who have been supplying spare parts to Hero Honda and Maruti Udyog. What these people say is that Hero Honda is very shy nowadays in production. The reason is that, they are loosing market share. Then who is gaining the market share? No doubt, the answer is Bajaj Auto. With so many new models coming up, Pulsar, DTSi, Discover DTSi, Platina very frequently into the market, I feel that CONSTANTLY INNOVATING is where Hero Honda is loosing. There’s a recent news also that Hero Honda is coming up with a plant in Uttaranchal also, that may be to get the tax benefits and other stuff. But I feel that the company while cutting their cost should concentrate more on new models. Splendor is the only model I think is going good in the market, other models are so so and the company cannot rely on just one model for its survival.

Rajiv Gandhi Chowk Flyover is Gurgaon… awesome!!!

Rajiv Gandhi Chowk Flyover is Gurgaon… awesome!!!

This flyover was delayed to construct but now one of the best flyovers I like. This flyover took about 2 years to finish and is just adjacent to the Jharsa flyover. The six lane flyover was just finished in June 2006 which was proposed to be competed in December 2005. Whether it was politics, bureaucracy or the prices of the steel to elongate the deadline…. Nobody knows. There are 6 flyovers to be completed to bring the traffic to a streamline in Gurgaon starting from Shankar Chowk near Udyog Vihar, Iffco Chowk, Signature Tower Chowk, 32nd Milestone, Jharsa Chowk and Rajiv Chowk. After all these structures are completed, maybe people can get relief for 2 – 3 years but its obvious that a good planning is needed in Gurgaon to synchronies the traffic.

Wet n Wild Resort in Gurgaon

Wet n Wild Resort in Gurgaon

Wet n wild resort is one of the oldest properties in Gurgaon. Me and my family went there for dinner for birthday celebrating birthdays of my mother and wife. The Wet area closes before 8 PM so we could not enjoy that :( . But the restaurant is fine. They have approximately 20 tables for dining and they serve food as well as wines in that. I have stayed in their hotel rooms too on the first floor. The rooms are also nicely designed and the best things to see are the bathrooms. Well designed banquet halls and gardens.

The dinner was good but I didn’t had non vegetarian this time. Sweet corn soup with paneer tikka and obvious dal makhni with the yummmmy missi roti. The food is costly but well prepared, quantities are also so so. Worth a visit.

Hotel Industry after Commonwealth Games 2010

Hotel Industry after Commonwealth Games 2010

Our country, especially Delhi is preparing fast for the Commonwealth games in 2101. I was just going through the Newspaper and saw that the DDA is auctioning hotel sites in Delhi in September 2006. These hotel sites are in Jasola, Dwarka, Shalimar Bagh, Wazirpur and many more sites are there. 10 sites will be auctioned in September itself.

The study by these newspapers says that if the Hotel site is auctioned for Rs. 400 Crores and the hotel building of 400 rooms will approximately need 600 Crores that makes the total to be 1000 Crores. In that case the Room Rate would be Rs. 25000/- per room per day just for breaking even!!!!!! Strange to here right!!!!

Now, what I think is that …. OK, people coming to visit the Commonwealth games might pay this amount for a room.

BUT…..

After the commonwealth games are over, what will happen with these hotels? Instead odf staying in a room for 25000/- bucks at Josola or Shalimar Bagh, I would prefer to stay at 10000/- bucks at the TAJ at Dhaula Kuan.

Toyota planning to expand fast in India but what bout the Traffic?

Toyota planning to expand fast in India but what bout the Traffic?

I read I an news today that Toyota has plans to expand in India at a rate of 10 times what it is doing now. Well I’m happy with the Toyota Innova I have but the not at all happy with the increasing traffic in Gurgaon. What will happen if all the automobile companies will grow at this rate. There are flyover and expressways being made at the moment if I think about the traffic being 10 times by now, I will definitely reach my office in 4 hours which I do in 25 min.

Negotiation skills in real estate deals

Boss, you need to have real negotiation skills when you have to get the real estate deal done between a Punjabi and a Baniya . I’m a Baniya too but I now realized that how difficult it is to convince the baniya to sell the property. Me and Netaji got a deal done between these 2 parties sometime back. The property is at IMT Manesar in Gurgaon.

The seller is thinking that he is doing a favor on the buyer by giving the property and actually the position is the same with the buyer also. At the time of agreement, both had their own point of view and believe me, it took around 5 hours of hardcore negation to get the deal done. Thank God!!!

Unique Pastry shop in Patparganj, Delhi

“Unique Pastry” shop in Patparganj, Delhi

I have been to this shop with my mausiji in Patparganj when she was not in a good health. The shop name is “Unique Pastry”. This place heaven for kids and food lovers like me who love pastries, cookies, cakes, hot dogs, different types of breads, sandwiches, patties, sausages, namkeens, pizzas, biscuits and many more vegetarian and non vegetarian products. This is one of my favorite “snack joint” in delhi.

Whenever I go there, I generally take 5-6 types of pastries, especially chocolate once. Hot dog, patties and Pizzas are my favorite among hot meals. Just have a visit over there…. It’s located very near to the apartments and societies of Patparganj in Delhi and very near to the famous Singla Sweet corner.

Again a fine dining at Madhuban PVR Saket

This time I was in a birthday party of a very close relative in saket. So there was nothing to think or decide upon as to where to have the dinner party. We went to our old addaa Madhuban Fine Dining at PVR saket. This time we had a better meal and there was nothing we can give a negative review. The bar has a much better ambience than the restaurant but you cannot take you family there. With tables, beer bar so seating for different people, they have given different choices. One again a nice meal. My genuine advice for mithai lover is to order a plate of GulabJamun after your meal…. Its yummmmy.
