With the dawn of the twentieth century, human civilization has witnessed an unprecedented proliferation of means and mechanisms that make life better. Microwaves. Smart phones. Drones. Faster cars. Faster elevators. Wearable tech. The list is endless. Our dependence on technology has reached such heights that there is now a proposed clinical term for the panic that sets in when one is not in contact with their cellular phone: Nomophobia.
However, upon closer observation it becomes obvious that we are far from the utopian life we have always secretly wished for, one replete with happiness, health, and absolute fulfilment. Although uber luxury lifestyles bring us superficial comfort and ease, they take us away from ourselves by making us dependent on things we grew up without.
Advancement in technology isn’t as detrimental as we think, as long as we are grounded in ourselves, know what we want from life, and give modernity the place it deserves. Many think modernity is a consequence of human evolution, but let it be known that past civilizations in the history of mankind had achieved feats far greater than the modern civilization.
From world-changing discoveries and inventions to laying down guidelines for perfect living, the Vedic civilization still baffles the world’s best minds.
Modern lifestyles give rise to conditions that disconnect us from our higher nature. Our endless pursuits involving time and energy make lives full but not ultimately fulfilling. According to the Vedas there exists a way of life preserved in ancient wisdom. A form of living that invokes profoundness, completeness, and true meaning. To actualize the attainment of life’s greater purposes, these ancient philosophies revived from lost Vedic lore are making a comeback in luxurious residential communities.
Concepts such as courtyard home design, Vedic groves, an impactfully serving community, Vaastu Shastra, and more such principles extracted from ancient wisdoms bring you elevated dimensions of productivity and fulfillment. Designed for impact makers and their families, it’s time to discover an uplifted way of living through these exalting features buried under contemporary lifestyles and habits. Like they say, history repeats itself. It’s probably for the good.
Community is beyond a mere collection of people coexisting together. The true definition of community includes an existence beyond the walls of one’s living environment. It implies a level of concern and involvement that supersedes individual existence and encompasses everything in one’s immediate ecosystem.
Community offers different definitions to different individuals. Depending on the person, their experiences, and background, a community may mean a collection of families residing within four walls, a close-knit tribe who worship the same divine being, or simply a group of individuals brought together by a love for a particular lifestyle or activity. All are true, the definition merely changes from person to person.
Further observation of all these cases reveals a common element that ties these seemingly disparate crowds together. What truly unifies the community is the shared mindset of the community members.
The feeling of engaging with others who empathize and augment your thoughts and aspirations is as inspirational as it gets.
When considering a community of thought leaders, realizing the potential to create large-scale impact boggles the mind. At Svasa Homes, one’s way of life is elevated to planes unimagined. A collection of extraordinary individuals with a network beyond political boundaries can work wonders, especially when armed with features as exclusive as a dedicated business lounge, concierge service, and curated events with subject matter experts. The Svasa community is one that looks outward possessing the power to shape the neighbourhood, society, and even lives for the better.
The Svasa community is a carefully handpicked collection of individuals who empower and inspire each other. The individuals of the community constantly exchange ideas and are continually energised in each other’s presence. Imagine living among exemplary individuals whose accomplishments inspire awe. A community whose residents share a common mindset. A community that collectively helps each other grow, collaborate, and prosper. A community brimming with the potential to actualize endless possibilities.

When Machani Somappa was president of the Yemmiganur Weavers’ Coop. Society, a great yarn scarcity hit the region. To battle this challenge, he formulated for the first time the idea of cooperative spinning mills which was a modern engineering marvel at the time. The mills came with dust control systems, humidification systems, and technologies never seen before in the industry. After the scarcity, Yemmiganur Coop. became the first to successfully develop a strain of irrigated cotton that could be produced throughout the country on a large scale. The Machani principles of technology, engineering and design thus played a crucial role in ensuring employment for many as well as establishing the significance of weavers throughout the nation.
