Why Is ACCOMMODATION TIMES NATIONAL AWARD Not Just An Award?
Friends, The moment the word "AWARD" is mentioned, it gives us all a feeling of excellence, achievement and expertise.
Literary speaking an award is a mark of recognition given in honour of an achievement.
Since, centuries awards and rewards have been a motivating factor in inspiring the movers and shakers, be it in education, games, business or art, awards have been presented to winners worldwide, the gathering of hundreds and thousands at such functions, not only instill a mood of excellence to the awardees, they also bring out more success stories both, locally and internationally .
Our topic for tonite is "Why Accommodation Times National Award is not just an award", so let's analyze and understand why?
The 3 Words: "Accommodation" "Times" and "Awards" have a meaning, a purpose, in the year 1986 Indian builders were beginning to invest in the Real Estate Market in a big way, mass housing and affordable homes were on the agenda, Mumbai, Bangalore and other metros were beaming with new housing projects and announcements, people were waking up to gated communities and skyscrapers and buildings with amenities.
There was a buzz in all circles, investments from the stock market, bullions and of other forms were slowly and slowly getting diverted into real estate.
During those times it was one man who understood the winds of change. It was none other than the founder of Accommodation Times, Shri. Murari Chaturvediji, a true visionary and an excellent judge of the changing times, Murariji, brought out the first of its kind, a full-fledged newspaper, that would report the happenings and news of real estate, construction, it's supported industries, legal advice and Ready Reckoner of Property Rates on Pan India basis all of it in a non-controversial manner.
It had everything that a man could ask for in a real estate newspaper.
The sons of Murariji, Shri. Ajay Chaturvediji and Shri. Sanjay Chaturvediji along with their father's guidance went on to become the game changers of the year 1986, and the Accommodation Times National Awards was born.
I was once told by Ajay Chaturvediji, the CEO of the Accommodation Times, he said that " There are many Award Nights and Many Award Functions, but what makes the Accommodation Times National Awards different is, that it is supported by the real estate industry, MCHI, CREDAI, Builders Association of India and many other Industry based institutions"
That was the time it occurred to me, how true is that! an award when given by the leaders and achievers of the real estate fraternity to the people who have worked to the best of their capabilities within the different areas of the real estate industry, to receive an award annually, makes it more valuable than given by any other commercial and non-industry based forums.
