After one year the firm told me to leave the accommodation and asked me to take a home on rent. The firm would pay the rent. So, I shifted to a rented house in an apartment around 5 km away from my working place. This incident was a great one for me as it was related to the dream of my own house.
Still I was trying to have my own house. But the big problem was the big gap between my savings and the price of houses. I tried many times to have, even, a small house but; if I would arrange 4 lakhs the cost would increase by plus two lakhs. So, each time, there was a big gap between my savings and price of the house.
Sometimes we were humiliated by the people living nearby having their own houses. If there would be a celebration in the apartment or neighbourhood we did not get any invitation as we were renters. Sometimes my kids were not invited in birthday parties as they were not the permanent residence of the apartment. So, you can term it like renters are second grade citizens before those having their own houses.
So, finally we decided to buy a house at any cost and we (not only me, my wife and kids also) decide to have my own home in the same area where we all faced these silly humiliations.
Sometimes my wife was told that people die without having a house in metro city like Delhi, so it is a big achievement of a person to have a house in the whole life.
As I explained earlier, these things inspired us positively to earn a house for ourselves. We struggled very hard to achieve this goal. We started work for extra pennies. With the grace of god we got many offers and I chose one that turned everything for us. My wife helped and supported me very much in all these things and kept me motivated.
Now the time had come. We started searching my dream house and lastly we succeeded in buying that house. I will ever thankful to my parents, in-laws and well wishers in supporting us mentally, socially and economically.
Now we have our own house in the same area and we are no less important than any other people in the apartment and neighbourhood. This was the start of a new life.
