To continue in Spanish press 5. To continue in Hebrew press 6. To talk to our executive press 7. To listen to the menu again press8.

Me smart me thought let me just talk to the executive and tell him what is my problem. I press7.

Voice: Please dial you TPIN number.

I dint know what is a freaking TPIN number so I just thopught let me wait, I didnt dial anything.

Voice: Sorry that was a wrong entry.

I didnt even dial anything. Buggers Man!!!!

Voice: To continue in English Press 1. To continue in Hindi press 2. To continue in Tamil press 3. To continue in Japanese press 4. To continue in Spanish press 5. To continue in Hebrew press 6. To talk to our executive press 7. To listen to the menu again press 8.

Voice: Please dial your 16 digit credit card number.

ME : 1345-5629-0987-9854

Voice : Please dial your date of birthdate for verification.

Confused me. Shall I dial month first or date first??? I am super irritated and its been like 8 to 10 minutes and I havent even told these guys what is my problem and I havent even got the option to tell them the problem. Super pained I am.

Voice: That was an invalid entry. You card has been blocked.

Phew!!!!

I had called the Standard Chartered guys to tell them that I was not using the card and I wanted to return it to them.

Man if cancelling the card was so much pain in the wrong place then why do they keep calling now an again and tell "Sir do you want a credit card???"

Pain man super pain.


Well picture this. We got Tata Sky direct to home connection. They gave a freaking number which we can dial to activate and get the installation done. Now the freaking number is some 1900-56789-098766 this can be called only and only from a BSNL and MTNL landline phone only. I have a Airtel Landline and my and my wife's cellphones have a Hutch connection.

So I go to a local booth and call.

Me: 1900-56789-098766

Voice: Hello this is Hritick Roshan. आब आप देख सकते हैं World Cup Finals मेरे साथ. Tata Sky खरीदिये पन्द्रह April से पहले.

Holy cow they asked Hritick Roshan to do this shit??? Like he is so without work that he is doing all this crap voice over and all for a cable TV provider???

Voice Continues: To activate your Tata SKy connection Press 1। To talk to out customer care executive Press 2.

I Simply press 2.

Voice: Hello this is Ganesh how can I help you?

Me: Hi Ganesh I got this new Tata Sky connection yesterday and I want to activate it and get the installation done.

Tata Sky Executive: Sir this is new connection?

I got so pissed. Why dont people listen to what they are supposed to listen? I try to be calm and talk back again.

Me: Ganesh this is new connection. I got it yesterday.

Tata Sky Executive: Sir have you registered?

Me: Ganesh I got this thing yesterday and I am calling to activate it and register it and all that.

Tata Sky Executive: Ok sir so you are new customer and I have to give you the customer ID and register your name and address. Sir, what is your name?

Me : Bhavdeep Singh

Tata Sky Executive: What sir?? Bharti Singh??

Me: No. Its Bhavdeep Singh.

Toot Toot Toot!!!!

I look at the guy who is sitting at the phone booth.

Phone Booth guy : Sir, if you call from a local booth to a 1900 number it will get cut in 4 miniutes. You should call from a home phone to a 1900 number. Then it wont get cut.

Me: WHAT??????????????? WHY DIDNT YOU TELL ME????

Phone Booth guy : Sir you never asked me before dialing the number. How should I know??? Arrrrrrggggggggghhhhhh !!!!! Bloody fools. Everyone. First Tata Sky people are buggers. I just dont see or heard anything and just dial again.

Me: 1900-56789-098766

Voice: Hello this is Hritick Roshan. आब आप देख सकते हैं World Cup Finals मेरे साथ. Tata Sky खरीदिये पन्द्रह April से पहले.

I wanted to kill the guy who gave the idea of putting Hritick Roshan's voice. Voice Continues: To activate your Tata Sky connection Press 1. To talk to out customer care executive Press 2.
I Simply press 2.

Voice: Hello this is Shankar how can I help you?

Me: Shankar I got a new Tata Sky connection yesterday and I have tried calling you guys just now can you connect me to Ganesh? The thing is I am calling from a phone booth because Tata Sky has given me a 1900 number and I have to call it from BSNL number. I want to regiuster my name and address.

Tata Sky Executive: Ok I will try doing it fast for you.

Atta BOY!!!

ME: My address is......... Toot toot toot !!!!

Freaking me. I talked too much and hence I was not able to tell that guy what is my address.

So after calling some 5 times. And the phone getting cut 5 times. I was finally able to tell them my address and got the activation code and customer ID code and all that. But I got major pissed at these idiots. The funda is BSNL is owned by Tata and the DTH which I was trying to configure is also owned by the same company. Freaking Arse!!!!

Anyways I thing these guys should also have some email or internet booking thing. It would be really helpful.

Pissed and pained. Bye!!!!

Smart Ass Virdi, Not Quite !!!!

I have my lunch at Sangeeta everyday and today's lunch would be something I will remember all my life.

I generally go with a guy Srinath, he is not in same group but yes talk just sports, hence good friend.

I took an extra papad today and it costs some Rs 1.50. So Sangeeta people gave that bill and I had to pay that at the billing counter. I didnt have change and went to the payment counter with 10 rupees. Suddenly 5 rupees came from no where and I thought it is Srinath who payed that, saying "why give 10 da, I have 5 rs change da".

And then with that Rupees 5.00, the guy sitting on the other side of the counter gave some 2 paans. Suddenly I turned back and saw that the guy who gave 5 rupees was not Srinath, it was someone else. Some arbit guy. Some guy I didnt even have any clue he existed on earth but he had the same shirt same height. Super embbrassmentttttttttttt. Super Popat. Super Kela. Super KLPD.

He was paying for himself and and I thought it was Srinath who gave that Rs 5, as my drea nice friend (thats what I thought) he saw that I didnt have change. Me smart ass me didnt even bother to see who it was and gave my bill along with that 5 rupees. I nearly took the money from his hand but to decrease the embrassment I just kept the money on the the bill. After that guy had kept that 5 rupees besides the bill.

My face turned red when the guy said , "Your bill is different than my money" Some shit he said. I wasnt able to hear what he was saying. But he would have said for sure, "Bloody smart ass Northie trying to fool a poor South Indian" Sorry South Indians you all look the same to me, whit same skin color and same mush style. Wait Srinath doesnt have a mush. Ya whatever!!! Right now my dimag is Kharab.

Man too much embrassment are there and then I paid 10 bucks and ran away. Srinath was standing outside sangeeta and said "what took you so long??" Me , "Later Srinath. Right now you just drive."

Ok here is another super tool from Google Talk. Go Enjoy!!!

Back on Turf

There was a match organised by the passing out IIT hockey team. We all played on Saturday morning and had great fun. IIT present team VS IIT passing out + IIT alumni. It was fun. Lot of junta had come down from B'lore to play the match.

Check out the photos here.

Posing before the start of the game

Me and Mani Sir

Teams Together

Crack

Spriklers

My superrrrrr Biwi also showed her skills on the field

More than the match it was great to be back on field after a long gap. :-)

On saturday me and my biwi went to watch "The Namesake". Either the movie was bad or I didnt understand anything of that movie. Infact I didnt understand what Jhumpa Laheri wanted to say through the novel.

There is some guy who has name Gogol. He doesnt like his name. He changes it to Nikhil. His father passes away and then he knows why his father gave the name Gogol and so he changes it back to Gogol. Ok dude whats yopur problem? Name doesnt matter. If names really matter then Atal THE BIHARI Vajpaeee would never had been the PM of India.

Anyways there are some things I really didnt understand.
  • Why did Gogol (or whatever his name) break up with his Gori girlfriend? She was putting so much effort to be part of his family.
  • Why did he marry some bengali chick after meeting her just once? She really looked like aunty in the movie.
  • Why did Mira Nair show that in their 90 days of visit to India, they saw just Taj Mahal? Did she run out of cash or ideas? Just asking. May be she was running of of time.
  • Why did Ashima go back to Calcutta and start her Robindro Sangeet? She could have done thousands of other things.
  • Why was Gogol cool abt his wife having an affair? He even told his mom , "I feel as if I am free"
Well I really didnt understand the movie. Thats it.
