Feeling like NEO these days...

With the network being congested or phones getting dropped these days...I feel like Neo.

Today I have been using landline only and while en route to pick my wife, I had to stop at a STD booth to know if I am supposed to bring something!

Of the 600-odd mobile towers in Noida, around 250 have already been sealed, while authorities have started a survey to find out if any more illegal towers are there. This sudden action against illegal towers has left operators in a fix as subscribers in Noida are facing serious connectivity problem for the past four days. (Source - The Hindu
Life is so simple these days...no one calling you..battery of my phone is going on for like 2 days!. Here are the top 5 reasons why I think the network should remain like this forever :)

1. No one can call you from office, when you are getting late. You can give the excuse that I was trying to call and update but call did not go through!

2. No calls from telemarketing guys, trying to sell home, loans or automobiles - Imagine!!!

3. Battery of the cellphone is lasting 2 days and hence energy saved...more greenery around and therefore Mother Earth would also smile!

4. You can tell your client that you have been trying to call to discuss a thing before finishing the job. And easily miss a deadline. Sounds serne...no? :D

5. No one gets disturbed by phone calls while driving and hence no accidents!

I just pray this situation lasts forever...and I guess with the lady leader like Mayavati, my wish will come true for sure

Remembering Tej...

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.



Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.

3. He was the best closer that you would want in your team - knew how to finish things. Whether it was AV shoot in Chennai, fixing dozens of cabs, writing a strategic prese…
