OK. Here is another thing that has changed about India. I have come back after almost 2 years. House hunting in Gurgaon right now. One thing which is no more a secret is the racism amongst House owners. There is the thread. 1/n
I am single and looking for a 3 BHK. First thing even the pr petty dealers try and get me to is to accept either a PG or a builder floor. Why? Cause even a 40+ year old working male who is unmarried can’t get a flat in a society.
One guy who is ready to rent it out to me wants 8 months of deposit instead of standard 2 months. Doesn’t want to do paperwork and wants rent in cash. Why cause I married men might prey upon “bahu beti” within the society. So I asked him who does he usually rent it out to?
He gives me his exclusions- No single men, No Muslims or Africans. I asked why Africans? He says cause they are drug dealers. I was shocked. How can all of them be drug dealers.
With me is another friend married who is Hindu, married to a Muslim girl. He is also not welcome. Things are so strange that one guy actually asked them to come with marriage certificate. And this when he has a 3 year old kid and is a govt employee.
This is not the INDIA I left 2 years back. And certainly not one where I grew up
