“You may not control life’s circumstances, but getting to be the author of your life means getting to control what you do with them.”
― Atul Gawande, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End
I am inspired to write this after reading Being Mortal by Dr Atul Gawande , which is an extremely well written book on the subject of mortality, ageing and the joys and challenges that go with it.
It is by now well known that life expectancy is at an all time high. Nowadays when our elders bless us by saying “ May you live to the age of 100”, we all know it can very well come true. Medical advances, our own awareness and ability to take good care of our mind and bodies means that we can all expect to live longer than our forefathers.
The flip side of this is that we need to provide for the period of our life beyond the age of retirement, which is a challenging task.
There are quite a few of us who are deeply invested in real estate, by virtue of the following
2. Our own inclination. Investments made through amounts earned during the working years.
Like any other asset class, real estate has it’s shares of ups and downs. The other major drawback of real estate is it’s illiquidity. I routinely advise my Senior Citizen Clients to exit Real Estate and deploy the money in more liquid avenues. Also as the options in the real estate market widen, it is often seen that in spite of dropping prices, we are unable to sell our property. There is also the challenge of understanding and complying with the laws, the most important of which is taxation. It is often wise for many of us to sell, pay our taxes and be free to deploy the proceeds in a manner which will be appropriate for our needs as we age. If our Children are not able to or are not willing to assist us in doing the transaction, then we are vulnerable . The selling process has also moved to online portals and most senior citizens struggle with the internet.
At Realtygyan, we bring to the table, a huge network across the city of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai, which will enable us to assist you in reselling your apartment. We have , in our core group, professionals who will guide in completing the transaction very smoothly.
The most difficult decision is of course to take a decision. We are very often emotionally attached to the property we buy. However, time is a very bad task master and punishes individuals who sacrifice money to the “pull” of emotions. The best way to deal with this dilemma is to refer it to a ‘ third ‘party. At Realtygyan, we will be glad to be your sounding board. You can have a no obligations chat with our team and this might well help you in making up your mind.
We are creating a separate section on our website to highlight properties offered by Senior Citizens so that we can prioritize your needs.

Of the four projects,only the CSTPanvel corridor appears to be in a healthy shape ahead of the state government-railway ministry meeting.A project report prepared by the ministry has placed the alignment almost entirely on government land,nullifying the need to acquire a single private legal structure.
Acquiring private legal structures in Mumbai is almost impossible, said the official.So,we have reduced that to almost nil in the CST-Panvel project.There are close to 250 hutments near Mankhurd that will need to be rehabilitated,but that should not be much of a problem.
The state public works department (PWD) has started work on widening the Sion-Panvel highway which will offer seamless travel to commuters driving down to Mumbai from Pune and Navi Mumbai. The Rs1,220-crore project will see the 23.09 km stretch widened to 10 lanes from Kalamboli to BARC junction. Several flyovers will also be constructed and widened as part of the project which is expected to be completed by May 2014.
The highway which connects Mumbai to cities such as Pune and some southern states is used by 1.6 lakh vehicles every day. Around 14.4 km of the existing road has six lanes while the remaining has eight.
“The developed road will meet the standards of the expressway, but will not have access-control measures as it has built-up areas besides it,” said a PWD officer. Another officer said the widened road will allow commuters a signal-free drive up to BARC junction.
“The bottleneck at Uran Khind will be widened and the gradient of the road will be reduced to allow a smoother commute,” he said.
The project, which will see the construction of a cement-concrete road, is being undertaken by Sion Panvel Tollways Pvt Ltd on a build operate transfer basis.
Three new flyovers will be constructed at Sanpada, Uran and Kamothe apart from the duplication of the CMLR and Taloja flyovers. The flyovers at Turbhe and Mankhurd will be widened and 10 pedestrian foot-over bridges and 17 pedestrian underpasses will be constructed.
Work on Turbhe and Mankhurd flyovers is expected to be completed in a year. The toll plaza will be set up at Kamothe and will have a separate lane at both sides for vehicles exempted from paying toll.

The techno-economic feasibility study for the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus-Panvel high-speed corridor has pegged the project’s cost at Rs 11,000 crore. It has recommended 9-car services for the corridor and a travel time of 45 minutes by 2019, as against the present 77 minutes.
Rail India Technical and Economic Services Limited (RITES) presented an interim report to the Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC), which will execute the project in association with the state government through a publicprivate partnership. The corridor will establish rail connectivity between South Mumbai and the Navi Mumbai international airport.
The consultant has recommended halts at 10 destinations, including Navi Mumbai airport. A senior MRVC official said, “It will halt at select stations on the Harbour line and can attain a maximum speed of 110 kmph to ensure faster transportation of commuters. Halts have been identified according to the importance of stations or where the interchange facility is available through the rail, metro or mono networks.”
The frequency of train services is estimated at 4.5-5 minutes. The official said, “It will ensure at least 14 services per hour. Due to the continuous automatic train control (CATC), headway can be improved without compromising on safety.”
The system is expected to have 21,000 peak hour-peak direction (PHPD) trips by 2019 and 39,000 by 2031. The official said, “We expect a 30% shift from the suburban line and 20% shift from road traffic once operations begin on the corridor.”
The corridor will run on broad gauge, with each coach having a capacity of around 350 passengers. Unlike the seat position in existing rakes, coaches for the proposed corridor will have a longitudinal design, similar to the Delhi Metro.
The new terminal for the service will come towards the east of CST.
The official said, “The elevated route will follow P D’Mello Road/Barrister Nath Pai Marg and will enter railway land just short of Reay Road between the existing track and under-construction eastern freeway. It will be at an elevated level up to Mankhurd, from where it will take the ground level up to Panvel and the Navi Mumbai international airport.”
RITES also identified spots where station buildings can come up. The official said, “The alignment will be more or less final, barring minor changes in the final report that will be submitted a few months later. The project’s financial model will soon be submitted too.”
The CST-Panvel corridor alignment will skirt Navi Mumbai airport.
