Raindrops 

Romantic… Hah!!

The traffic is all that comes to mind as soon as I hear raindrops.


But if you don’t need to drive, brew some coffee and enjoy the music.

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?

On a hot summer’s day…

…we decided to go have paranthas in old Delhi. The immediate thought is about the paranthe waali gali, but we went to a place called Asaram Paranthe Waala. This is near the clock tower. 


He makes / can make 16 parantha at one go.


The tawa (hot plate) is half full.


Next stop for us was Kuremal Mohanlal Kulfi 


We did go to Paranthe Waali gali but to have Rabri.

Jama Masjid 


I’m trying to get back to the habit of writing regularly. Let us see if I succeed. This blog was thought of as a diary for Delhi. But has shaped otherwise. 

Here is a link to an album with more pictures of the Jama Masjid and a brief description borrowed from Wikipedia.

The King and his men

This is painting by my father, Late Gour Gupta. This one is for a campaign that I think was to do with finding petroleum resources. In here, the king and his men are on a hunt for petroleum.

I remember this to be pretty large painting. Acrylic on paper. And like any of his other paintings, the white is paper and not color. He specialized in doing this.

Missing him much today as a clean and sort a lot of his papers.

Cheers!
