With 2020 behind us, we look at what became the biggest luxury in the lives of most people irrespective of geography and wealth. Seasoned luxury market analyst and founding Managing Director, Maison India — Gaurav Bhatia has called our ‘homes’ to be the biggest luxury last year.
Our homes – the greatest blessing amidst the pandemic
For the first time in the post-World War 2 era, 2020 was one of the most devastating years for the whole of humanity.Perhaps for the first time in history, the world came to a standstill. When the world outside our houses almost became a threat to the entire humanity, our homes became a sanctuary, a cocoon for almost all of us.
“We tend to take our lives for granted and often forget our greatest blessings until an outside force makes us realize how valuable the little joys are. Last year made us appreciate how warm and safe our homes are, and how cocooned we are, irrespective of psychographic and demographic, where you live and how large or small your home is”, he says.
‘Stay at home’ became the tagline to ‘flatten the curve’ worldwide. Our homes became our comfort zones, and the workplace for millions of people. People from different regions across the globe started posting their experiences and pictures through various social media platforms. “Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter were filled with filled with posts pictures of people sharing their experiences at home. Often with anecdotes of their refuge – cooking, baking, music, yoga, poetry, and so on and so forth,” Gaurav Bhatia Sotheby’s Ex MD adds.
“With the access of a smartphone and social media, the joke has been that people have actually become more ‘anti-social’ adversely affecting relationships amongst the family members. In 2020, the ‘staying at home’ gave the opportunity to the families to reboot and rebuild their bonds as they got an immense opportunity for long and engaging conversations, and doing things together”, he says.
Bhatia also indicated towards homes turning places where people started empowering themselves via education and developing skills. He said that couches became places of learning where people learned how not to share negative and unverified information. “From developing new skills, introduction to new areas such as human rights activism to learning how to become a responsible user of social media, our homes became the place of learning and self-expression.”
What did he enjoy the most staying at home? “Living with all my art and actually learning how to appreciate it more. That and of course the bonding with the children over elaborate meals. We all became Michelin star chefs. Or so we think!” he chuckles. “But yes, more than anything else, just breathing and being thankful for a roof over our heads and being safe” he concludes.
Touché we say. What after all can be more luxurious than being safe at home while living life to the fullest? However, we must also not forget the ones who were away from their homes and families, found last year one of the most challenging times of their lives. Hence, to cherish what Bhatia calls the greatest luxuries amidst the pandemic — our homes.
With over two decades of experience in the industry, Gaurav Bhatia is well known for his divergent ideas in the luxury industry. From helming leadership positions in Sotheby’s India to LVMH Moet Hennessy, he has led a number of high-end international luxury brands in India and abroad.

Dr. Sudhir Bhola – The Famous Indian Ayurvedic Doctor.
Contrary to the widespread belief amongst the masses, a doctor or a medical practitioner with aid of medicines is the only medium to solve critical problems like erectile dysfunction or P.E., however, this is not true. In the spectrum of majority sexual disorders, counseling plays a pivotal role as compared to medicines.
A plain dialect with a psychologist can work wonders and help you to overcome your fears & stigmas around sexual performance; speaking of which, how can one miss to mention the best Sexologist doctor from India, Dr Sudhir Bhola. Dr. Bhola firmly believes in the balanced theory of medicines, counseling, and lifestyle changes. His ideology of perfect blend between cognitive and behavioral aspects has helped him bag some of the most prestigious awards in the field of sexology over the past 20 years. He is a renowned doctor who has been practicing for over three decades, helping and guiding patients from all over the world.
Born on 8th November 1965 to a humble household, he is an active member of many eminent associations around the globe like the European Society for Sexual Medicine, National Ayurvedic Medical Association of U.S.A., International Society for Sexual Medicine, The American College of Sexologists, and many more. Dr. Bhola has been active in many charitable events and aims to make the millennials and GenZ more vigilant and informed about the importance of sex education. He is one of the first doctors to introduce Linear shock wave ED therapy in India, which has emphatically proven that even without medicines, critical sexual-disorders can be treated.
India, bestowed by the gift of Ayurveda by Seers and Rishis, itself highlights the profound connection between the mind and the body, retrospectively a healthy balance must be ensured between both to treat any illness. Dr. Sudhir Bhola believes Ayurveda is the key to a healthy sexual life without having to worry about any sort of side effects. The disease is known is half cured and the best part of the treatment offered at Dr. Bhola’s clinic is that you are always in touch with psycho-sexologists and doctors who strive to decipher the root-cause of patient concerns.
With such eminent doctors in the sphere of healthcare, there’s a paradigm shift in the mindset that has altered the stigma around sexual concerns. In addition to this, it has successfully revolutionized the outlook of people in regard to Ayurveda and psychology.

At Curewell Therapies, doctors not only help you recover from these medical problems but help you change and improve your basic lifestyle in order to get long-lasting relief.
How to Buy A Used Motorcycle – Checklist
The MENA region has seen a rise in motorcycles on its road in the last few years. The Japanese giant, Honda Motors is known for producing reliable and safe vehicles across the globe and so, it is no surprise that some of the best Honda Motorcycles have taken the more popular spots than the others.
However, with prices ranging high – Honda Shine’s average price is around $950 while Honda Unicorn is $1,300, maybe opting for a used bike would be a better option, until you gain some confidence and a better handle on the vehicle.
- Visual Inspection
To make sure you are not being duped and are actually getting a fair price on the motorcycle it is important you conduct a visual examination first. Before you even start the motorbike or haggle on the price, just look at the vehicle and see if it meets the criteria you already have set out.
Make sure the bike is thoroughly cleaned. Regardless of how old the bike is, if it is well kept and cleaned properly and shines like it would if it was in a showroom, you know the bike was taken care of fairly well and would be up to the standard.
- Exhaust Pipe
Second, look at the exhaust pipe. Make sure that it is properly mounted on the bike and is not corroded. Ask the seller to start up the bike in front of you and look for abnormal sounds. If they exist, the motorcycle is probably not up to the standard.
Thirdly, and most importantly, look at the VIN (Vehicle Identifier Number). These usually consist of 17 characters. The following is how they are divided:
- Characters 1 – 3 are known as World Manufacturer Identifier (WMI). They show where the motorbike was manufactured.
- Characters 4 – 9 are the Vehicle Descriptor Section. These convey attributes of the vehicle.
- Characters 10 – 17 are the Vehicle Identifier Section. These give specific information about the vehicle such as the engine, model year, transmission, and plant code.
Make sure you touch the VIN and see that it is engraved and part of the motorcycle and not just panted over or stuck on. This could really help in identifying if the motorcycle is genuine or not. If you are unsure of what the VIN should look like in the particular brand of motorcycle, look them up online and take a screenshot with you. It is better to be safe than sorry.
- Wear and Tear
Lastly, while conducting the physical examination, look for the areas where there is usual wear and tear such as the handlebars and foot pegs and even the levers. If certain parts seem odd, example they do not match the rest of the bike or seemed to be dented or bend in another direction, then it is likely that the seller had them replaced which is usually an indication of a prior crash or accident in which the motorcycle had undergone distress. If the seller had said otherwise, then it’s likely that he is not being fully honest with you which begs the question of what else has he not been truthful about regarding the vehicle.
- Under the Seat
This is quite crucial. Open the seat and have a look inside. If the wires are unicolored, it means the seller was too cheap to buy the proper equipment to fix it. Also, look for pieces of tape holding wires together or mix match connectors. This is not okay, and the safety standard of the motorcycle just went down significantly. So, beware.
- Test Drive
After conducting the visual examination, take the motorcycle for a spin. Remember, this is very important. Make sure the bike was cold when you started it up, and pay attention to the sound the engine makes, as discussed above. Then take it for a test drive through the route most similar to the one you are likely to take on an everyday basis.
There is no harm in buying a secondhand motorcycle. It is just important the vehicle you buy is of proper standard and that you are not being duped and get a fair trade.
