Things doesn't in the way because some one has studied Tamil as their major! There are so many who couldn't get cross elementary school. I remember, I met a kid around the age of 14 to 15 in the Bangalore to Salem passenger train, who did his schooling only up to 3rd class, can read Tamil, he breaks stone in quarry for last 6 years.
There used to be the ant and grasshopper story. In the summer ant's will collect all the necessary food and preserve it for winter. The happy grasshopper will enjoy all the summer and painfully die in the winter, since not having food.
This movie supports the grasshopper and says that stop ants from saving. A wrong message!
Recently this what proposed by our FM!
If you pay tax, then you will have a PAN card, if you have PAN card you don't get subsidized LPG you pay 500RS for a 14 KG cylinder. You don't pay tax, you will not have PAN card, you don't have PAN card you get the same LPG at 300RS. You get punished because you pay tax. Shouldn't be the other way?

GRRR.. Here comes the ticket checker again when you get out of the station. Why while getting out of the station? Already a TT comes personally to you to verify your ticket and then to confirm whether you are the one who has bought the ticket. GRRRRRRRRRR… even the TT in the train didn’t verify my ticket with my ID card that I have given while booking the e-ticket, this guy did it! I appreciate him. And the TT in the station takes the ticket back and doesn’t give it back! I’ve asked my ticket back. He said the ticket doesn’t come back to you. What?? I could understand that he was having a bunch of tickets in his hand. What he will do with the tickets? May be he will prove that how important his role is for the railways?
Got in to an auto in which 3 people were there already to go to the bus station. The advantage is the auto driver charges only 10RS each. I save 20RS. To go the bus station in a shortest possible distance, risking all the lives, he drove the auto in the wrong side for the major part. Can’t I resist him?
Got in to a state Transport Corporation bus which ply’s between Dindigul and Palani, around 6:45AM. There were very few passengers in the bus. The bus was not cleaned at all, may be it’s the first trip for the day, normally they are kept clean. There were full of sand, strewn orange skins and peanut skins. The conductor started selling tickets. When he came to me I gave him two 10RS for a 17RS fare ticket. By looking at one of the notes he asked me give me a different note, this is torn! It was just torn for an mm in the middle of the note! Come on it does go.
Me: Come on where I could have got it?, it does go!
Conductor: You return it back from where you would have got it!
OK! I had few more 10RS notes, which I could have given it to him. But for a moment I thought what if this is the only 20RS I had?
Me: What would you do if these are the only notes that I have?
Conductor: Then you would have to get down!
Me: Ok, I will get down in the next bus stop give me my money!
I got down in the next bus stop. And I heard the conductor yelling, he had so many notes why can’t he give another ones?
I was waiting in the bus stop for another 10 minutes, and then came the next bus to Palani. It was a private bus, and it was fairly full. The driver was driving the bus normal; unlike they always drive it rudely. This conductor accepted the same note with out any problem! You have to bear with the latest movies they play which didn’t even run for a week in a C sector!
Then again I got a thought, what if that was the last bus for the day! What I would have done? What I could have done?
Wondering how complex the simple things become in life. How many would be traveling in the bus in which that conductor is serving? For sure he would never face this problem, since he never has to buy a ticket, advantage of working in state Transport Corporation! Can the same be applicable to those who work in airlines? Never! They are unique! Those who work in cement factory doesn’t get cement for free and for those who works in a refinery doesn’t get fuel free!

The guy who was attending me was promising me that he will get the device and will get it activated on the same day and he lived up to his promise! I was there in their outlet till 8:00PM and he couldn't do it because the server was slow. He said you please carry on and after activation only I will go home! I got a call from him by 10:30PM and said its been activated!
What is the advantage of data plan compared to hourly plan?
No matter how many hours you were online, what counts is how much data you used to communicate! You can be online for hours together, without worrying about hours getting exhausted. Especially when there is slow connection data plan will be the best to choose compared to the hourly plan.
TATA Indicom also has a similar plans, just before this Reliance offer they were the best!
The device cost getting reduced is the sign of getting phased out soon. I think soon there will be PC Express cards replacing the PC cards and so on.

On the holy day, I rush from Mahadevpura by 7:30PM to catch this train in a auto. That auto guy demands me 150RS, fearing missing the train, I agree to pay. And I reach the station by 8:45, only to listen that the train will reach the station only by 11:30PM instead of 9:20PM. Grrrrrrr, ok lets wait. The train comes by 11:30 and I board the train only to see some one else have occupied by reserved seat. I wake him up and ask him vacate, he looks at me as if I'm his lifetime rivalry! And he checks my ticket as if he is the tt.... well finally he vacated the seat. Peacefully laid there and slept. Suddenly I woke up around 1:ooAM, and looked around to that the train is standing just few KMs away from the station. Grrrrrrr, and slept again. And the tt wakes me up around 2:00AM to check my ticket....
In this 1013 train you will always get tickets for Bangalore to Coimbatore. Don't get carried away you will not make your trip on time! Try "Kanyakumari express"....

Last Friday I got to travel with this KPN since I had no other choice other than traveling with them to Palani. Well, I started hating them from the start at their boarding station at Bommannahalli in Bangalore:
- When there are at least 200 people gather, they don't have restroom facility... I asked the manager there where is the bathroom, go to top! Top is nothing but an open terrace... (well, I had no other option other than doing it there...)
- Bus reached Dindigul outskirts around 6:00 AM to drop some of the parcels those are loaded. Mean time the driver noticed that one of the rear tire got puncher. The cleaner started to replace the tire. It's about a kilometer to Dindigul town, from where the bus is standing. There were so many passengers in the bus to go to Dindigul. The driver never informed that its going to taken an hour to any one. Mean time one guy went and asked how much time its going to take, then the driver said its going to taken an hour those who are to Dindigul please find your own way to go there!! Well its well after an hour he figured out there is a puncture...
- Got down the bus and found there were many parcels stranded on the road. And I saw one bag filled with black stuff is torn and the stuff inside is spilled out on the road... I pity the guy who would have sent it. Then I saw another automobile assembly, which is again dismantled and spilled all around...

Points that I would note:
Exactly in between 2 to 3 am the bus stops at Salem petrol pump to fuel the bus, at the same time some guys jump to the top of the bus to load and unload parcels. Sometimes I feel this service is for public or for parcel? Then on my sleep is lost, after that every 45 minutes or so the bus stops at several stations, and same loading and unloading routine happens.
Then goes and parks the bus in the side lane of Dindigul bus stand, which is the urinal lane. Even I'm sleeping, suddenly feel the catastrophic bad smell and jump out of the bus until it moves!
They lack the minimum common sense in operating a service. They have to understand that a parcel service cant be run from a 10X10 size rooms. Keeping all the parcels on the road blocking whole traffic. And the pity is how some ones valuable parcel is left on the road until its loaded in the bus.
They have no value for their customer, for their life (at the mercy of driver, several times watched the driver standing up and driving while overtaking when there are speeding vehicles opposite side) and for the customers properties!
These days I'm avoiding KPN as much as possible, by going by train.
