3/2013 What will it be next ?

Yet another bomb blast. This time it was in my home town of Hyderabad. The Police came, and started their investigations. The criminals will eventually be caught , and tried. What next ? The case will linger on for years. The judgement will be pronounced, and the criminals will be lodged in jail, and pampered for years, using Tax payer’s money (read my money). Every one who lost their near and dear will get tired of the waiting, and will prefer to forget the nightmare. Then there will be one more blast (GOD forbid), and the tamasha will start all over again.

01/2013 Shame on Spicejet

This is an example of irresponsible behaviour of incompetent Spicejet Airlines.

I was planning to return to India on 28th Jan. by a Spicejet flight. As usual, I asked for a reconfirmation of my return flight. Spicejet slept over my request and gave an incomplete answer ** TEN DAYS AFTER ** my flight. What is the point of responding to my mail AFTER the date of my flight ? Do you notice that the response is still incomplete and indecisive ?

Here are some snippets of the email ::
