    Bank account or any other mode of savings for a group of friends

    History and common sense tells us that trust no one when money is involved. Best is to ask each family to individually act responsibly and save money (in recurring deposit, SIP, etc) based on their own means and aspirations. And if everything runs good then we shall meet for so and so holidays.

    TRAI planning to screw with OTT services next

    So here lies the crux. It is the DTH and Cable operators who are unhappy that the Channels are directly reaching the customer using internet rather than the satellite / cable route. Which makes sense since I did not switch to the new TRAI dictated Cable pricing and or a few weeks was relying on...

    Demonetisation and its Aftermath

    In my opinion the new currency notes are seriously good thing to happen to the plain and drab currency notes of the previous generations. This is bolstered after exposure to currency notes of multiple other countries.

    Temporary Accomodation in Kanpur

    Is this some kind of summer project / internship? Why don't you ask the IIT Kanpur guys to allot a temporary hostel room. Most rooms are empty during the summer break. Or perhaps they can help with a subsidized guest house inside IIT campus.

    Went on a date with a femisnist, things went downhill. Lol

    LOL, this is indeed the soap opera thread. Son, there is no equality between men and women. There is a reason why you went on a date, otherwise you already have plenty of male friends ... right? A woman who talks about chivalry, and gifts and favors from men knows this. No matter what they...

    New cable TV Tariffs to put a hole in your pocket!

    Here is what I can make of the situation: the bastards called channel houses saw that the local cable operators (not DTH) are solving common man's problem of selective channels at effective price. They invoked this regulation to increase their monopolistic share of bundling. HAHA, so much for...
