    Need help with term insurance

    google basunivesh and check the site for articles on insurer comparison. I settled on HDFC click2protect plus (instead of the one without plus) in hind-sight, should've gone for Max, which was 25% cheaper and now may be merged with hdfc.

    How is package of 9L for Bengaluru?

    Just apartment rent will come to Rs.2L per year. So the extra amount you're getting just disappears there.

    Budget 20-25K Need user feedback on Z3 Compact

    Why not a Z2 in this price range? A bigger screen, better battery, and its hardly a few months behind the Z3.

    TastyKhana and FoodPanda - all gone down the drain?

    How to/Should resign asap or serve notice period?

    Yes, pardon me for having social manners. just because you sit miles away front of a screen, doesn't give you a right to be rude. 'm also a part of that "middle class with average skills." Those frm other classes either join IT out of boredom/interest, and those with better skills move onto...

    How to/Should resign asap or serve notice period?

    They might be, because that's how the situation is! And even your response is generic, doesn't mention to whom mine is offensive :P You allow T-shirts at a workplace with 30,000 people, one banana will wear something offensive like "I love &@#(", and then there'll be a huge furore.
