I am talking about the Paki group here. So these guys asked the company I work at to manage the whole thing. So, they were all pendoos. All they wanted was grandeur. They wanted something keh aankhain phati ki phati reh jaein. Money was no object. So they kept on adding things. The budget for that night went from 2 crores to 3 to ultimately 5 crores. They wanted wooden floors, all the dignitaries there, etc etc. Now why TF would you want wooden floors, I have no idea. They were willing to spend something like 9 lakhs just on 6 toilets for a few hours.

That was all fine and dandy until they told the Gulf group (It's in Arabia, I guess) about the expenditures. They went ballistic at the cost and really dressed the Paki guys down. So now they want something to be done in a few lakhs!

So guessing by this, I just hope this project goes on well.

Lastly, the company info is confidential, hence I cannot tell the name or other stuff. I don't want to get fired.

Lol! if it were me, I would ve just fired the goddam company just for their lack of buisness sense!

what retards!

The atkins projects looks amazing, very striking design. Also iam not sure if its a coincidence or quite deliberate, but if you look carefully at all the 3 buildings, it spells ALLAh in arabic, the resemblance is quite uncanny.
