airtel has got a new mobile customer!

I have to admit that airtel was the first mobile service I used. That was long time ago in Chandigarh.

Since then I have tried a lot other options including Hutch, Tata Indicom and even Aircel.

Now, I am back to airtel. And it took a lot of effort on my part. I have waited for Mobile Number Portability forever… it still has not arrived. airtel stores in my regions turned out to be awful. They are out of prepaid sim cards pretty much all the time. I had to get airtel customer to do something about it.

And when I went to the airtel store to get the sim card recharged, they were incidentally out of prepaid recharge (amazing! Huh?). Anyways… I am now using an airtel prepaid number with their pretty nice data package that costs 100 bucks for 2GB. And it works on roaming!

Data on roaming was the primary reason for my switch to airtel this time around. Of course, they are one of the four options I have here in Gurgaon for 3G services whenever they are launched. But I am not very optimistic about that. I can only hope that their existing 2G plan would remain available and the company would not temper with its speeds in the future.

Tata DOCOMO is being accused by a lot of folks that they have made their 2G speeds so slow now that they have launched 3G.

Noticed this on the road in front of my home here in Gurgaon. As you can see the material lying on the road makes it impossible for a car to pass through.

The crappier part was that the other side of the road was blocked by a locked gate.

The gate has been put on by the people living in this lane. In fact, my dad had to pay the money they collected for these gates unwillingly.

The gate is probably illegal if HUDA rules are to be believed.

And I thought October was bad…

This is a clear case of vandalism and I believe it happened in the parking lot of Barbeque Nation in Gurgaon.

Anyways, there is little I can do. Scratches are something that have no solution. I would have to learn to live with these bastards.

Update: Things have gone worse. The rat is back in the car. And there is shit all around. I did not have too much courage to look for any damage. The car started fine so that’s pretty good I guess.

3G license for Gurgaon?

Last time I checked Tata DOCOMO, Idea and Vodafone had 3G licenses for Haryana.

I assumed that applied to Gurgaon too.

But this tweet from the Tata DOCOMO team is rather mmm surprising.


@Sushubh Yes, we DO have the licence 4 Haryana, but not for Gurgaon! #3GLifeless than a minute ago via web

Gurgaon is considered part of Delhi NCR above Haryana?

That means Airtel, Reliance and Vodafone are going to serve in Gurgaon?

Now, you can probably complain about bad roads at admnggnhuda@gmail.com

HUDA administrator Nitin K. Yadav had announced earlier this month that they would clean up all the bad roads in the city by September 30.

And if anyone sees a bad patch or a pothole on any of the roads, they can submit a photo of the spot with details at their email address.

I plan to do it… I had like all Gurgaon people visiting this blog to do the same.

Of course, this changes nothing. There is no accountability. But we gotta do what we gotta do!
