Australia with friends 2018/19

When you are traveling with friends, forget about your day night routine. You will do the most unexpected things and your kid/s will look at you as if they are meeting strangers.

This post is an attempt to capture of that madness.

Shikha was listening to this one a few days ago and it just stuck on… The words are beautiful. If you wish to view the entire video, visit –

I’ve the habit of playing with new tools, almost to the level of being obsessed until I’ve tried it. The iOS 11 brought with itself the screen recorder. I have tried it earlier but today I tried it in conjunction with iMovies and the result is here.

I tried sharing this one on Instagram and elsewhere but couldn’t manage to get the entire poem up. I’m guessing the blog won’t let me down.

4G Wifi Home

The experience began very well. They came, they checked, the setup. It worked, but then came a bill and I questioned. The rest, is still lingering…

The started an unreachable story. Speaks volumes of their own n/w, but somehow, no one seems to care, it is all CYA (Cover Your @ss) mode. Read on…

I gave them a landline…

The only point of contention is, I had paid 3 months advance, why was I being asked to pay again. They (Franklin / Neeraj) found that the scheme the SIM was registered under by #Airtel was incorrect.

They have offered me a new SIM, I asked for pre-activated one, they have not got that to me. They couldn’t / haven’t deliver/d.

They offered me a INR 500 discount on the bill. It has not reflected in the due amount. How can I pay INR 500 less based on an email, and then they will chase me to pay the rest.

So I’ve decided, till I don’t get the SIM installed I will not pay.

I leave it to the judgement of the company. Also for the last 2 days, Neeraj and Franklin have stopped picking my calls.

If this is how you behave / treat Platinum customers, god help the newbies.But do you really care, with so much on your plate?
