Quikr in Bangalore

If you were relocating to Bangalore, how would you use bangalore.quikr.com to your advantage?
Here is a what I experienced
Today when I reached office I got a good news . The news of my promotion in fact it was two good news rolled into one. The second good news was that I was being transferred to the beautiful garden city of Bangalore or Bangaluru as some like to call it.I was super excited to receive this news and I decided to share it with everyone i.e all my friends and family. When I called my best friend Raj he congratulated me and at the same time expressed his concern as to how would I adjust in the new city of Bangalore and moreover where would I be staying? A valid point indeed . However I am a firm believer that whenever we have a problem or a situation the solution is also somewhere nearby and we only need to look for it. So as I was talking to him I simultaneously browsed the site http://bangalore.quikr.com/ Voila on visiting the section http://bangalore.quikr.com/Houses-Apartments-for-Rent/w257

I found a vast list of apartments that are currently on offer for rent. This issue was sorted out . I was now thinking that maybe I should settle down in Bangalore for good and in that case I would need to buy a flat there and just then I happened to browse through the section Houses –Apartments for Sale http://bangalore.quikr.com/Houses-Apartments-for-Sale/w256

Looks like this site has been designed to meet all my needs. However once I have a house the next thing that I would need is the furniture. As I browsed through the section http://bangalore.quikr.com/Home-Office-Furniture/w218 I saw a long list of home furniture on sale in Bangalore. I thought with a new home and furniture in sight I must inform my friends in Bangalore about my transfer to that beautiful city. When I called up my friends and gave them the good news they asked me if I needed any help in settling in what would be a new city for me. I told them that I had shortlisted a few houses and furniture on http://bangalore.quikr.com .My friends were greatly impressed with my foresight and asked for a House warming party. Indeed I said however that would require kitchen appliances so again I took the help of http://bangalore.quikr.com/ and browsing through the section of Kitchen Appliances http://bangalore.quikr.com/Home-Kitchen-Appliances/w221 I found a wide list of choices in terms of kitchen appliances and electronics. The next thing that remained was that I buy a TV and a laptop there because if I were to take away the TV then what would my parents watch here as they were not moving with me. If I were to take the laptop with me then how would my brother do his college projects? To resolve this issue I again took the help of the quickr Bangalore site and found an exhaustive list of TV’s and laptop’s here http://bangalore.quikr.com/Electronics-Appliances/cId-18222212657 I was surprised to find that within my budget there was so much choice. Now it was time to go back home and break the news to my parents. Upon hearing the news my Dad was concerned as to how will I commute without a bike. When I showed him the wide ranges of bikes that I could buy here http://bangalore.quikr.com/Cars-Bikes/cId-262 he was so impressed that he straight away decided to finance my purchase. However my mom was still concerned as to how and where would I live in Bangalore. Her concerned were laid to rest only when I showed her the pictures of the houses and apartments that I could rent. .Now I had to break the news to one final member of the family without whose consent I could not possibly embark upon my journey. This person happened to be my younger sister. When she got the news all hell broke loose. She insisted either she would not let me go or accompany me to Bangalore. My father asked her that what would she do in Bangalore ? He even jokingly said maybe you are planning to start a career as a heroine in movies down south. To which she quickly retorted why not ? and opened the site http://bangalore.quikr.com/Acting-Modeling-Roles/w18222212534 and showed us all the opportunities for acting and modelling listed there. We all started laughing and this eased the tension and I moved to my room making a list of all the things that I would need to buy from http://bangalore.quikr.com/ to make my home away from home in Bangalore.
