This is a fictional narrative based on
real events at two ends of the spectrum, playing out concurrently:
a) Living in Mumbai and trying to build a house in the Nilgiris
b) Facing the prospect of the house one is living in being demolished
People without any experience in house construction would be considered foolish to try and build a house in the mountains thousand kilometers from where they live.
People living in a building which has been earmarked for demolition would be on an emotional roller coaster ride as the tension of not having a roof over one’s head is unimaginable
This story intertwines the two events with anecdotes and flashbacks.
The practical difficulties and adventures of buying the land, choosing an appropriate name, deciding on what to do with the property and finally building the house are one side of the coin, while the legal tangles, web of intrigue, mental stress that is unique to a high profile building demolition is the other side.
These two aspects form the basis of this story which does not follow the principles of “textbook creative writing”
