The guy told without looking at me "Come Monday"
Me - "Sir Monday is Off due to Ganesha Festival"
Him - swallows his words and says "OK come Tuesday"
Me - "Sir I need it today"
Him - Now he looks up and says "come afternoon"
Me -"Sir it is already afternoon as it is 12:20 PM"
Him - "OK get the bank statement" to prove the money is credited as you paid by Cheque"
Me - little annoyed -"It is three months and I am telling you it is debited from my account"
Him - takes the acknowledgement slip and goes to a room and comes back in 5 seconds.
Me - Goes to the same room after 30 Sec; ask the lady with computer for the receipt.
She hands me over the print outs.(surprise surprise so this is the time it really takes 1 minutes max)
Me asked for Official Seal
She points back to the first guy
Me come back with the printouts he signs and puts the round seal.
Thanked him very politely. And got out of there.
The whole thing took only 10/15 minutes a max and my good luck that my work was done. Best part he spoke in Kanada and I kept on replying in English. Whatever we do as Indian with watching MTV and eating McDonald a visit to Government Office still remains nightmare which I postpone and procrastinate for ever. As those Officer or a Clark does not change their attitude.

Race Day ….
Last Saturday, it was father & son time again as Pamela in school after long summer vacation. Aarush was doing his part to keep my hands busy and asked him are you a Nut for being such naughty? And the apt reply was “Yes, I am; I am a coconut”. Could not stop laughing for a long time. Even though we call it a nut but coconut is not a nut botanically?
Scene-2 One Chief Minister of India decides which countries are allowed to play in one Indian state for IPL. Well she is not the first one to do there was a stage set for the same in Mumbai long time back. Looks like it is not impacting cricket much and everyone is happy with IPL Season –Six.
Scene-3 One Indian minister comments on drought. I am leaving it out and saving myself from typing.
Scene-4 In Facebook, there are opinion on Aloe-Vera to politics, economy, technology, history and what not. Well like top 3 example I could just ignore them or comment or hit the humble ‘like-button’. Not sure why there is dislike button ? May be it is more “Gamification process” than “engaging”.
Scene-5 in a recent party heard people refusing airline based on their country of origin. Does it really make sense ?
The same person avail other products/services of that same country directly or indirectly for sure in today’s connect world. Just for the record I was drunk and wise and remained mute :)
As said in the first really thinking on the digital/social context as here I am expressing my opinion without any heart-full argument on the same.
