By Saman BiswalA decade ago, a man from Gujarat named Senna had a vision to build a house that would embody his Hindu faith and make it his home.
He did it.
Senna had been a devout Hindu, but the idea of creating a home that would give him peace of mind was beyond him.
In fact, he thought it was his destiny.
In 2006, Senna approached his brother-in-law, a construction company called AkBuilder, and proposed building a new house that could embody his religious faith.
AkBuilder built a house in Gujarat and installed a prayer rug, an ornate Hindu symbol that Senna thought would make it feel as though he was home.
“I was inspired by the Hindu tradition, and it was my dream to build my own house,” Senna said.
But then, the building went awry.
The contractor was found to have hired a subcontractor to build the project.
He was fined Rs 1,000 ($180) for not paying the cost of the construction and then sold his house.
The contractor also failed to properly secure the building site, and had a “complete failure of planning,” which led to the building’s failure, Sennas brother- in-law said.
The builder then decided to tear down the building and sell the house for a profit, which he then sold.
AkBuilders owner said Senna has been living on the proceeds, and Senna was “very distressed” over the situation.
Senna did not respond to requests for comment from The Times Of India.
AkBuilder, however, said the company was confident that the project would go ahead, as the building had been completed and the building company had secured all the necessary approvals.
AkBuilders said the builder had been “delighted” to have built the house and would be “happy to help him with any problems that arise.”
“We have been looking for the right person to build this project.
Sennadhan was a very hardworking and very committed worker,” AkBuilds founder Naveen Singh said.
