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 🙂 .

Last month I went for an Air show and This is what I most want to do, and Never done before , Two things actually
1. go for an Air Show ( done this now )

2. Do this stunt myself .. I told my friend and they said “ARE YOU MAD“… But what fun it would be … Although I have done something similar to this, which I am going to showcase in tomorrow’s theme.

The girls looked all at ease but when they got out of the harness at such a height and did those stunts it was unbelievable .. then they walked the wing and sat in the cockpit.. I really really want to do that … heck you only live once .. whats the worst that can happen . NA I want to do it , adding it to my bucket list , I am sure somewhere in UK or USA they teach you how to do all that for sure 🙂 Anyone knows any place … Please Please leave a comment 🙂

PS. :- I am sure everyone can guess , One of the person in the pic’s is Me.. but can you guess which one and Who could be the other one ..

PPS :- I found these two pics in one of the Trunks laying in a shed back in my village

This is a shocker, I got an email from a lovely friend of mine which had a link to it on you tube.. She had asked me to see it and confirm if this was true what was being shown on the video.. Well I saw the video and It has shocked me , I had no clue things were this bad. The video showed people young guys being interviewed by a SIKH CHANNEL, as to the way they were living..

The kids were living under a bridge in open, in this weather its freezing outside .. How the hell are they living there .. The interview and a few personal phone calls made have brought some very unhappy and sad things out in the open. The pathetic situation of our boys and it’s not just the sikh or Punjabi boys it’s a lot of people from india .. what was more shocking was talking to a Girl too who was in that situation. I could not believe my ears what I was hearing.

The worst thing is these people are sleeping out in the open just a little distance from a Sikh Gurudwara Sahib and a Hindu temple, How sad can it be that OUR religion teaches us to show pity on poor and help the needy YET we are doing nothing for these kids. DOES IT MATTER

1. WHO THEY ARE

 2. HOW THEY HAVE COME TO THIS COUNTRY

The couple of phone call conversation I had were chilling, I was enjoying this festive season and did not even know about so much suffering of these people, I mean shame on me ..

So much for the so-called people who are supposedly the leaders of our community in this country , THEY ARE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE POLITICIANS OF OUR NATION. I saw a few interviews by some supposedly rich people on the channel going on and on an on how to help the kids BUT NONE OF THEM HAS DONE ANYTHING SO FAR.

None of the Holy places are doing anything either or if they are doing then it is NOT ENOUGH.  It was surprising and shocking to hear that some kids have not taken a bath for months as these temples are not letting them in, HOW CAN THEY DO IT.

The Gurudwara Sahibs- temples other holy places are supposedly the house of GOD where NO HUMAN BEING should be stopped to enter , everyone has an equal right( especially in a Gurudwara sahib), but as usual the leaders and the office bearers are more interested in getting the MERC or the AUDI from the money they earn from these holy places, rather than spend the same money on the welfare or the people who need it NOW.

What is the need of spending so much money to do extensions to the already huge buildings, I mean what good is that , should that money not be spent on the welfare of the people, I would request each and everyone who go to the holy places to stop doing this, Start asking the questions why is the money that is donated spent like that and wasted on materialistic goods. Is it not worth spending the money in building a BATHROOM where the people who are sleeping outside in open CAN have a BATH at least .

It is OUR FAULT , the fault of common people too, we in are constant Race to be in the good books of GOD, give money but no one gives a damn where is that money being spent or how is it being spent. Yes I have given my 11 pounds or 100 pounds, to make GOD smile at me. The money slowly makes its way to the pockets of the so-called care takers of our religion , none of our problem..

Sikh gurudwaras are so RICH, They have so much money in their banks why don’t they hire some houses, build halls where at least the people who have been stupid enough to come leaving their warm home for the dreams of pasters greener , can at least sleep in the warmth. Every leader or office bearer comes and promises EXACTLY like a politician back home , only to disappear once the speech finishes.. Any wedding I go to the caretakers are always asking for donations , for this building fund that fund.. I MEAN WHY it makes me so mad , and whats worse is people yes US LOT , standing there and making a BEE LINE to give that donation , OH YEs god is looking at us , he is happy.. I AM SORRY BUT I WISH AND PRAY THAT GOD DOESN’T GET HAPPY AT SUCH ACTIONS.

People here in uk are LOADED they are multi rich yet they wont do anything for anyone , but then I guess that’s how they have become rich by not giving or spending.

Also those who are reading this post back in india PLEASE FOR GOD SAKE , Stop this madness of coming abroad , Things are not so good,  I know most of you wont believe me you will all come or try to come .. but in that case come with a return ticket , check things out .. at least have a way to get back .

I am not sure what the SIKH channel has done for these people, I will do some more enquiries about that and put it up. But I doubt if anything would be done .. In our culture we are quick to portray the problems, the miseries of others but when it comes to help we first see how much We will benefit from this all AND then help others.

Really sad after hearing about all this, the lure of greener pasters is bringing so much misery for these young men. 10 class FAIL in india have managed to get further studies visa’s , by giving money to agents and all. How are the people who have looted these kids , put these kids in so much misery sleeping at night.. Tonight when they sleep in the warmth of their BED .. I wish every window in their house cracks open so they can feel the CHILL of the Cold in their bones .. and they remember that these boys are sleeping out in the open in that COLD CHILL.

I am not asking you to view the video but just in case you want ot check it out yourself ..

The Mayhem

Rear Pessanger Window

Indian team has been found wanting in the match, they have had to play some tough cricket and look what happened.. What amazes me is the way we have lost the match ..

India needs a firm grip over the way things are going on , a lot of patching needs doing , we have spent so much time on the IPL that the matches where it matters .. well we have seen what has happened .. the so-called top 3 did not do well at all, I don’t want to be mean to the little master but will he ever perform when the Indian team needs him the most .. I don’t see many matches where he has dug his heels and said I AM NOT GETTING OUT ..

Bhajji came and hit some shots but it was too late for anything ..

I know test match is a tough cricket .. India did not look tough enough.. I don’t know how the politics works in the team, but we never looked like a winning team, While watching the match in the first innings when things were not going the english way , Yet they looked a TEAM. a tough team..  and they all worked together , Not One player or top 3 or whatever .. they worked together .. If strauss could not make runs the tail ender Broad was taking india for a ride.  The english opener did not score many runs but the other players picked up ..

Indians had a sorry score card.. first innings Broad took us apart and this innings Bresnan took us apart.. I feel sorry for our boys and I hope they get there act together ..

We have the talent but why are we not giving them the chance, why are the likes of rohit , virat not there , we play a lot of cricket the ipl , the one dayers and then we went to the Caribbean , we should have been on the ball raring to go but alas it did not happen…  I know many of the players will make it a excuse of too hectic a schedule , well all i will say to them is say no to IPL… which i doubt any of the players will do because of the Moolah involved..

Sorry if i sound harsh but It was hurting watching the matches and the way we have played , A few players did not go to west indies what were they going back home should they not have been preparing for this tour, I a ma big big fan of Zaheer and Yuvraj but I felt they looked Unfit , they had not been going to the Gym while in india .. working out , keeping fit.. Our team is not as fit as the english team.

We are a team of individual stars hoping that they will perform, it seems we can never play as a TEAM.  Look at the fitness of both the teams and I am sure anyone can see ..  One side ready to perform at the highest level, the other side individual left to their own devices HOPING they will perform ..

When we are a top team a number one team .. a lot depends on the bench strength but we have been found wanting ,  when it loses a pace man who has a lot of variety in his armoury we don’t have a replacement …

Sehwag is to come in the next match lets see what he brings .. He is a great player we all know but what can he alone do, Yet I do have this feeling that with him in the team the opponents bowlers will have something to think about so that might work in our favour.  I hope Gambhir comes back too..

What I mean about being tough and fit is that on the first day of the second test match Gambhir was rolling and diving in the nets on the arm supposedly with a bad injury or broken,  yet he is sitting outside injured , where is the theme gone when the going gets tough the tough get going,  Thats when boys become MEN, I would have expected Gambhir to walk out and Play, there have been players who have actually played with broken bones, I remember Kumble bowling with a broken jaw.. Now that man was tough he would not sit outside miss a game .. Thats the type of players we need when we have such high-profile tours, Winning west indies we were complacent.

The english team has put us right where we are, sitting on glory majority of the time.. I hope the third test brings something new and our boys forget this loss and come out raring and playing as a team .. I know we can’t win the series now but lets not lose it boys .. GET up and DO your best …

There has to be some toughness that needs to come, it is a big test about our character we have been very sloppy in every department of  the game , its time we showed the world why we ARE the number one team in the world and toughen up..

Hopefully Sehwag will bring that toughness in the team..  We are a side known for our batting and batting is what has let us down , the bowlers though not at par with the english yet did a good job for india..  its time the players did something with the bat and showed that they deserve to be in the team..  It is time to perform boys… All the best …  .. See you at edgbaston, birmingham.. Hopefully I will see you play on the weekend … My tickets are on way ..

 

TRI COLOUR IS THE COLOUR OF OURS — COME ON INDIA SHOW THEM STARSSSSSSSSSSSSSssssssss … .
