6 AM – silence breaks

A crow caws, a dog barks, a vessel falls, rattles, a biker honks, a twig breaks, milkman’s cycle bell, an alarm clock rings, a gate opens. All this I hear at 6 AM, the silence is broken, the sleep is lost. I type these words till I find it back.


Exodus Movie – NO.

Longest 150 minutes. Not only for me, for a lot of people, because like this tweet pointed out Mass exodus during the exodus movie. — Paul Joshua (@PaulJosh) December 7, 2014   The movie is neither based fully on the Bible nor are the effects and graphics a treat. The problems: BIBLE: “12 Looking this way […]

Bajaj Allianz Insurance Payment – appalling

Recently, I had a hard time trying to pay the premium online for a Bajaj Allianz Insurance. Bajaj Allianz site is so badly designed, it is horrific.

Cleartrip, clearly bad service.

I had booked a resort (Wild Elephant Eco Resort) through Cleartrip and I must say both the resort and Cleartrip service was really bad, especially Cleartrip’s. 1. Wrong offers, without clarity. “Flat 25% off, use code WKDBRK” was what it said on site. I booked a hotel(Rs.6000) and saw only Rs. 1000 discounted. I called […]

Lost my wallet and found humanity

It was a regular day. I got up and went out to buy milk from a shop that is about 200 meters from my house, one straight road. But this day, for some weird reason I decided to wear these track pants that I haven’t used in ages. And also this day my wife wanted […]


Flipkart evouchers are a sham!

You might know the WS retail is flipkart’s own seller (flipkart itself). Flipkart evouchers/gifts are applicable only on product whose seller is WS retail. When a person goes to Flipkart to buy something, it is because there is a clear intent to buy something ( that item of interest). Or let us, for the sake […]

Taxi for sure… for sure!

I use this blog to review products or services (good and bad). This post is for the cab service provided by Taxi For Sure, new guys in the market. I’ve been shuttling between Chennai and Bangalore a lot in the last year. In Bangalore getting a cab used to be a nightmare, especially on weekends. […]
