When I started looking for a house to purchase in Bangalore, my only intention was to purchase it for myself for living in and not for investment reasons. Initially I had thought of looking for a plot of land and constructing a house there. I had thought that I would take part in each and every aspect of planning, design and construction – but slowly I realized that I had none of the three things required for undertaking such a project – time, energy or patience. I then decided to do what most Bangaloreans are doing – purchase a flat in one of the up and coming areas of Bangalore. And like most Bangaloreans, I paid a lot of attention to Vastu.
