I seem to have this pulling strength of attracting IDIOTS and MORONS. Sunny Tuesday the 15th of august trying to watch the Independence day parade and chatting to a couple of Friends in India suddenly the TV-BROADBAND-PHONE is all cut off, I did the usual resetting of Hub ,switching on-off of Tivo box no success.  Then I noticed outside the window a White Van marked KELLY COMMUNICATIONS,  Two gentlemen were doing something on the road outside the house, Went out to find.. Apparently they had come to Fix a cable issue for my neighbours.

I told them Politely that they have done something which has cut off all my network, “OH NO”, “WE HAVE NOT TOUCHED ANYTHING”, this is the guy who is  Pushing a yellow pipe down the hole  .. I guess he was wearing Gloves which Technically meant he has not TOUCHED ANYTHING.   I told them again that all three services have gone, it is very RARE that this happens all three going out together. But they had not TOUCHED ANYTHING so how could it be their fault, they did there job and went.

I wish I had taken there names and the Van reg number so I could put it up here to Name and SHAME THEM, but they know who they are so hopefully if they have any sense of respect they can apologize .. OH I forgot one of the guys gave me a VERY INTELLIGENT answer, “YOU WILL HAVE TO RING VIRGIN MEDIA CUSTOMER SERVICES” it is probably a fault somewhere..

FAULT DUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH yes the fault is YOU.. 

Does it TAKE a ENGINEER to find how many connections are going from here ..  ( the two cables are one for network and the other is phone) I am sure when they opened this for the first time they could have seen there is ALREADY A CONNECTION.  doesn’t take a GENIUS to see that.  SO what happened to the connection which was ALREADY THERE.  Even a MORON could have guessed that..

So around 11 am another Team comes in TWO VANS and a CAR, to check the neighbours cable, I again went out and told the guy that the previous team had done something his Reply was “I HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING”.. Seems to be a Pet answer from Kelly Communication Engineers, they probably get to hear this question a lot of times,  anyway they got to work did there patching and checked the cable GUESS what they said the Previous TEAM had PHYSICALLY CUT THE CABLE TO MY HOUSE .. 🙂 Brilliant job..   they were making there calls and promised me they will sort it out before they went.

I being the Idiot I am offered them tea as after all they are humans and working outside, the Indian culture does tell us to ask a stranger even, Gave them TEA and all , they got to work and Then LEFT putting the cups in my porch, did not have the decency to say Thank you, But I guess it could have been the BROWN SKIN effect and after all it was the INDEPENDENCE DAY of India when the British were made to leave the country.   One this I have promised myself NOT GOING TO OFFER TEA/BISCUITS to any of these people again. 

Then the real drama began with @VirginMedia calling the customer services, the person was very nice I must say but kept on asking me to try switching on and off the HUB and I am telling him the CABLE is CUT,  anyway to cut the story short they booked me a Engineer Visit for the 17th august, 2 days later.

17th august came , The engineer came , I gave him the whole story AGAIN, guess  what he says OH he did not know the cable was cut , he can’t do anything .. It is a different Team that does the pulling in and out of cables 🙂   which part of my English was missing where I had not mentioned that the CABLE WAS CUT.. I even went on to Twitter here is the Proof, CLEARLY it says the CABLE IS CUT, so why send a engineer who cant do anything to cables.

 

I even called the Customer services again just to make sure I had said the right thing, I asked the lady on the other side to READ OUT the Complaint and issue I had asked them on 15th, LO AND BEHOLD it mentions that the Second team said the CABLE has been CUT, it needs to be repulled , the guys who had cut it will come back on the day to FIX IT.   Ok I can understand my spoken English may have been wrong but surely the typed English by one of the @VirginMedia customer services could not have been WRONG.   (am i being sarcastic here , oh god so cruel of me)

 

So Now I have been booked for 30th AUGUST,  A company as big as VIRGIN MEDIA, with all their resources are so deficit of fixing a job that they need 13 days to fix a issue which THEIR engineer has caused.  I wonder how soon can they repair if the wire got cut by mistake or deliberately by ME.. after all I might not see the SECOND cable in the pipe , I could be partially sighted see only One cable at one time…

and by the way Its ok if no one can call me .. or if I cant call someone over the phone for the next two weeks, How does it effect Virgin media, None of their concern.  If there are any important calls missed I AM TO BE BLAMED, Virgin Media can compensate me for that Let see what that could be ah bless them.

Let me also tell here that when I rang the customer services and told them the TEAM IS STILL HERE the Brilliant engineers who had cut the cable, they could not do anything because they had come to fix the issue with neighbors… where has COMMON SENSE GONE..

Common Sense says that after getting my details, they could have found the team that was at my door step for the neighbours complaint, RUNG them up and told them to fix the cable they have CUT all this hassle would have been FIXED. But then common sense is no more COMMON in this Modern world. So way to go KELLY COMMUNCATIONS wooooo hooooooooooo.. 

When cable TV started in India year and yearsssssssss ago the people then were more capable of putting the cables correctly and FIXING the issue but with so much technology @VirginMedia needs 13 days to pull a Phone live for Connection 🙂 .

Hello Everyone first of all thank you all for the well wishes and the emails , messages etc etc .

job

 

I have a small little proposal here , thinking of working for myself ,starting a small little venture So Am looking for some talented young people who are good in Programming.  We have a few clients here who want a system written, Which I have already started on.

So if anyone can refer Hard working-Capable- Loyal people who know  C#, Asp.net , Sql Server or even if they have skills in PHP using open source , etc etc Then I am looking to hire a couple of people who can work remotely in India and who can be trusted to work without a lot of supervision, because I don’t have time to supervise them at moment neither the funds to Hire a Supervisor.

Please do send your contact details etc. so we can set up some Skype meetings and take it forward.  I am planning to come to india shortly for the same purpose as already have a few people lined up.

The reason I am asking openly is because Since I am starting new I can’t afford to be duped hence all you lovely people refer me some genuine people.  I have heard a lot of stories how things have gone wrong for some who have earlier tried to set up something like this back home.

I will spec the project out and also can send over the work that I have done so far, I just did not get enough time with full-time work and my part-time stuff. But this project is very important and I am in process of signing on about a dozen clients, hence the need to send work offshore so it is completed on time.

A good opportunity for new graduates to try their skills.

Main Haale Nahin Marda

Tutde rishte zakham bahut doonge de jaande
Par Zakhman di peed nu sehna aa hi Jaanda

                          Breaking of relation give deep bruises
                          But one learns how to deal with them

Tere Dhokiyaan te Jhoote waadiyan ne kita hai adhmoya
Tute te ujade dil  de pathar lagde ne pyare hun

                          Your cheating and false promises have left me half dead
                           But broken and ruined stones in my heart I like now

Sochan which hain mangdi saadi maut da farmaan
Ik gal da hai yakeen Tere wangu Rab nahin karda dhokha
Mann ne haale nahin marna

                          You probably wish for me dead
                          I do KNOW for sure that God is not going to betray me
                          Mann (me) is not gonna die so soon

Duavan haan Teri lai mangda..
Rab kare dil tere diyan pooriyaan hon har muradaan

                          I wish for your happiness 
                          May god give you and grant every of your wish

Door kadi jad akali tun hain baithen
Chees tere dil which waar waar eho Uthe
Das ni rakaane tun idan kyun kita..

                        
                          Far away when you are alone sitting
                          let there be this pain in your heart which keeps saying to you
                          Why oh Why did you do this

Mirza-Sahiba is another treasure of Punjabi literature.

 It is a romantic tragedy. Mirza and Sahiba were childhood playmates,. They fell in love with each other, but when this beauty is about to be wedded forcibly she sends a message to Mirza

 Mirza Khan on reading the letter doesn’t think twice and rides to get his love , inspite of  his sister’s request, His whole family warned him that the “Sials” (Sahiba’s brothers) were not the type of people he’d want to mess around with as they were hot-headed and aggressive. Mirza didn’t care about a word they said, all he knew was that he loved Sahiba and they had to be together.

 Mirza arrived  during Sahiba’s mehndi ceremony and carried her away. Sahiba’s brothers got to know about this and decided to follow them.

 On the way, as Mirza lies under the shade of a tree to rest for a few moments, that’s the time when Sahiba’s brothers catch up with them.

 Sahiba on seeing her brothers, sided with them and broke the arrows in Mirza’s quiver knowing very well that Mirza was a very good marksman and would have killed a few of her brothers.. Hence the famous phrase that arose in Punjab at that time “Sahiba Bani Bharavaan di .. Bhaiyaan ton Yaar Marwata!.” .. Meaning Sahiba took her brother’s side and helped in getting her lover murdered by the brothers …

NOW this is where my thought comes..

First  Mirza when he knew he is being followed .. Why did he have to rest, He should have carried on he reached his village where his brothers would have helped him …

Why did his brothers not follow him to help him

Secondly WHY did Sahiba break his arrows..  My reasons to ask

1. She knows she was being forced into a marriage cause the family did not accept her relation with Mirza…

2. She had called Mirza to come and get her.

3. When Mirza took her away she knew that her brothers would not take this easily and going by Punjab’s standards they would be ready to do anything to avenge this insult.

4. Why did she break the arrows… If Mirza had his arms who knows it might have been a different Folk lore ..

In the end she could not bear the death of her beloved and kills herself.. but if we stop the story and think of it just before she kills herself then she was wrong 🙂

So what are your opinions of this .. if this was todays story who would be at fault or the Wrong one here .. She should have stuck with the love of her life no matter what..  Mirza did his job to perfection when the Love of his life called him, he did not bother about his own life but went to get it ..

Dont you think such stories happen a lot in our society a lot these days, people spend years promising the world, Talking of the Undieing love for each other..

I will do this for you, do that for you.. if we separate i will kill myself and all that bollocks but majority of the time when the Fun of love goes away its time to go into the arms of another man/woman. So common these days dont you think..

PS:- Legend has it that Mirza and Sahiba will keep reincarnating until they don’t finally get together.

PSS:-Out of all the legendary stories originating from Punjab, Mirza Sahiba’s story is the only story where the male’s name comes first and then the female’s

DISCLAIMER:- Please carry on reading this article if you are ready to think logically and understand. If you are one of those people who does not like listening to other people view then PLEASE STOP NOW, I am sorry.. This article is not for you. These are my thoughts.

Heer Ranjha is a very well know story.. though this is just a work of fiction, written by Waris Shah. The story like all such stories, is partly true and partly fiction, yet it continues to have such a powerful hold on the imagination of rural folks that they want to believe it to be true.

By writing Heer, Waris Shah not only told a fascinating story but also raised the status of Punjabi from that of a rustic language, which was mostly a spoken language, to that of a language of literature.

But what I have been thinking and I know mony of you are probably thinking here we go again Bikram is thinking 🙂 but no seriously have a think and logically there was this guy who belonged to a rich family of four brothers, when the wives of the brothers asked him to do some work he gets all upset and leaves home.. What does that tell you that this young man did not like to work hard.. wanted an easy life .

So he goes and then falls in love with Heer, FAIR ENOUGH they had a love story going and whatever the circumstances.. or whatever happened Heer gets married to someone else .. NOW this is where I have my argument…

Marriage is a very HOLY and SPIRITUAL relation where you vow to live your life with your partner in health or otherwise .. Heer gets married .. Now I believe that we all have a past .. Each one of us has had a past whatever that is good or bad ..

Now when Heer got married then WHY was it that Ranjha had to go behind her, to spoil her life and the life of the one she got married to.. I mean isn’t that supposed to be a start of new life for Heer..

When someone is married we should let go.. Let the past be past whenever we go and try to get the past back all we get is HURT.. It not only spoils the realtion of the newly wed but a lot of others get hurt tooo..

OR am I wrong …

Do you think he did the right thing of following Heer to her In-Laws house and then spoiling her marriage …

This post might not be liked by many but over the years and with a few experiences that I have had in this life, I have found that on the whole We the people have somehow managed to master the art of cheating, lieing , disloyal basically the art of anything that would hurt the other human being.

Lets have a look at the above statement that I just made, have a think and look around yourself or anywhere, relationships these days don’t work as when it started it was different and now after some time people realise that what impressed them most about the other person simply does not exist, it never did cause it was sold to them at the start with a blatant, shameless lie.. For which we fell and now suddenly the truth dawned on to us and we found the REAL THEM…

Look at the way media plays around us creating this big world full of lies or stuff which may not have existed , what we think as truth turns out to be a big lie and what we thought was a lie was in fact the truth.. I mean media turns anything into ANYTHING… if you get the zest of it; I recently posted an ad on Harvey that just shows how we are influenced by media…

We are all the more inclined and are totally devoted to do things to create expectations which we know we are not going to fulfil especially towards people we say we love or care for ..

A few examples I picked out for example What do you guys think about BOTOX why was it invented, Well I feel that too was invented so we could LIE about our age it’s another thing that we have started using it to enhance our looks and other body parts depending on who or WHAT we are ..

Same way the Lipstick It was not initially about making lips look bright and pretty. It was about hiding black, chapped, smoker lips or covering up thin, pursed, ugly lips and giving a woman a more inviting, more pleasant look. This was fine as long as you did not take the woman home and wake up the next morning beside her in bed and discover that, in the bright light of morning and minus her makeup, hair extensions, coloured lenses and double push up bras, she looked nothing like the woman you had dated the night before.

We all are always looking for a new option constantly since we are disappointed with the ones we have at the moment ,  I am on a Orange mobile contract with a Xperia X10 but I want the company to give me a new Iphone 4 on the same contract, ok they say NO..  so I get angry at them and threaten to change the providers , They also add a juicy bit to it Ok Mr. Mann we will give you 50 picture messages a month and 100 minutes of video calls free for each month, so Mr. Mann is happy but we forget that they have all there infrastructure set up , does it matter to them if they give me a few more messages I am still paying over the top for the top end handset which obviously after showing off for a week or two will lose its charm and will again be just a Mobile which I want to change to Iphone 5 launching in June 🙂  (Ooooh with that I bet, I have started the rumour mills running too)

Iphone 4 promised so much but it failed at delivering and it’s got umpteen problems, cause that what happens, promise more than one can deliver at least something will be delivered is the idea , That explains continuing shifts in brand loyalty, and frequent breakdowns in relationships of trust.

A FACT… trust is the first casualty in the Age of Consumerism, even marriages are built on this no wonder divorces are so rampant. Hence one feels all cheated especially on the things that you have been fantasising like the lust for a woman and then discovering that her gorgeous assets are silicon-based.  Thats Cheating…

The new thing that has come up PANTS for men who have sagging bums, it’s like the bras that came to boost the size of women’s Asset .  Just imagine how both the couple would feel when they take their clothes off and find the CHEATING 🙂  I am sure a few people can come with other ideas to design clothes that would help the opposite genders to go WOW !!!   but then why am I talking about men I don’t think it justifies if women have been doing it for so many years and getting away it then why not men 🙂 I wonder where this war to cheat will take us…

To all those liars and cheaters .. Cheers to you all Have fun
