    3. Saif Ahmed

      Its an Urbana project at Ruby, kolkata, West Bengal one of the luxurious High rise apartment. I feel a bit of pain about you people after spending crores on flats if u get to see this kind of situation then it doesn't worth it of crores despite of being at 41st floors.

    5. Shabbir Ahmed

      I live on 4th floor but I still got scared sometimes I feel like my building might collapse and you staying in 41st floor how scary you feel everytime when strong wind blow all the time

    6. Divyanand Tiwari

      Now you wealthy high rise people understand the pain of poor people living on the ground.. you had tears just by your window flying away, while that are faced by poor people every monsoon that there roof top flies away... And you at high rises make fun of them see them with neglect and hoard money and resources, do politics with there life when lot can be done by you.

      I think you are crying

    11. Google User

      God bless you and your family!! I experienced hurricane Sandy in NYC, the wind sounds the same, but the apartments are much safe than my individual home then. Luckily just my street had power back in 2 days. Where as the rest if the affected areas had no power for a month or so. I dislike how Indian govt doesn't have certain laws and rules before constructing. Yes sometimes we can't do anything in front of mother nature.

      Now imagine how would have people lived 200 years ago when there was no concrete or even today or people living under thatched roofs

    14. Chainrup Sharma
