Today its proved YU (are un)Fit, Amazon

Indian E-Commerce has seen tremendous growth in past 2 years, benefiting all the stakeholders, customers, industry, investors, etc. Off late the concept of flash sale has created such a frenzy that people are forced to buy a particular product, at particular time, from a particular e-commerce website.

Today, 29th July was one such day, today is the day when global e-commerce player Amazon proved, its unfit to handle huge demand from customers.

Sales of YuFit – an activity tracker; competitor to MiBand failed miserably due to technical glitches in Amazon’s website.

Technical problem or not, customer care wasn’t able to convey the message of duration of this outage, they were doling out common response across the platform:
” There is some technical issues as of now. Our technical team is working on it. And the sale has been extended till 4PM.
So i request you to try placing the order after 30 minutes.”

This is the reply from Amazon after 6:30, on my Facebook asking me to join the race again on 31st:

” Hey! We have an exclusive sale on July 31st, 2015 at 2 P.M. for the customers who were able to add the product to the cart but weren’t able to check out.

– Grace”

Thanks Grace and all customer care associates for putting up such clueless replies to queries from customers.

Amazon you really made my day, you wasted my 1 hour trying to buy a product from your website.

Dumbass owns a smartphone – Experience 1

Dumbass 1: Hello, Excuse me
I turn around to see Dumbass 1 driving a luxury car and flashing his brand new Apple iPhone 6 plus.
Me: Yes!
Dumbass 1: Can you direct me to xyz hotel.
Me: Oh, yes!(I hesitate a bit, I didn’t hear the word “Please” anywhere in his sentence)
Dumbass 1: how should I go (Still “Please” was missing, I was thinking to mock the hell out of this guy)
Me: Oh! you have got iPhone 6 Plus?
Dumbass 1: Yes, I bought it yesterday, it cost me a bomb.
Me: Amazing! What other features does it have? (now cost is also a feature, if its expensive its has niche features, if its low-cost it’s all basic features)
Dumbass 1: (Really excited, or thinking that he got a chance to boast about his knowledge of this amazing device) It has 6 inch display,4G, 8MP camera, 64GB Rom, GPS, bluetooth, NFC, blah…blah….. for few minutes.
Me: Wow! It has 4G! and it works amazing with abc network
Dumbass 1: Yes, I have even got 4G activated from abc network and it works like a breeze, when others struggle with download speed, this beauty does it in a flash.
Me: Hmm (looking quite impressed) so why can’t you use that brick to tell you directions?
Dumbass 1: what? brick? (with a surprised look)
Me: yeah! It’s a brick if you don’t know how to use it. It has GPS, 4G, etc.. but
Dumbass 1: but.. what?
Me: But, it’s not smartphones fault, it’s a great smart phone but its bought by a Dumbass!
Dumbass 1 is greatly humiliated by my words and people walking by and on the street side are laughing at his humiliation, I walk away with an evil smile.

Lord Ganesha is a Womanizer!

July here it goes and comes the month of August, and there arrives Lord Ganesha Festival (Birth anniversary) and I really don’t know how old is Ganesha, he should be over 10,000 years old (or even might have to add a few more zero’s).

I was sound asleep on cloudy and rainy Saturday of last September. I was awakened by annoying music and I got up with an intention of using a couple of cusses to my bachelor neighbors. I opened my door with a thud and they were right there in the balcony just as annoyed as I was and staring at me as though I was the culprit to all the noise, but it was coming from the street and we exchanged pleasantries with each other.

Its time for Lord Ganesha Procession and beginning of immersion of idols in lakes, rivers or sea, and I had totally forgotten about it, a few years back I used to be a part of it and enjoyed it a lot. Earlier we used to go in processions dancing to keerthan’s and bhajan’s and never to Bollywood tunes  leave alone western songs, but things have changed, today Lord Ganesha was a Womanizer!

I know what you are, what you are, baby

Womanizer, woman-womanizer, you’re a womanizer

Oh, womanizer, oh, you’re a womanizer baby
You, you-you are, you, you-you are
Womanizer, womanizer, womanizer

It looks like people have totally lost the spirituality, integrity, societal values of Ganesha Festival, now its all about which pendal’s Ganesha is bigger, louder music, expensive, prasadam, etc which actually reflects the egoistic twist these festivities have taken.

These procession went on for the entire day and it was really annoying to listen to the songs they were playing and dancing to:

1. Lungi Dance

2. Main Tera Hero

3. Beegay Honth tere , remix version

4. Balam Pichkari

5. Halkat Jawani

6. Chikni Chameli

7. Shiela ki Jawani

8. Munni Badnaam hui

9. Jalebi Bai

10. Fevicol Se, etc…… it never ends

Is these the songs which our toddlers and youngsters should associate with god, prayer, devotion, etc. Here the leaders in society have to step-in and take up corrective measures, I will try to make efforts to bring about a change to this.

Problems of being an Insomniac

I can’t  sleep beyond three hours in a day, and it seems really odd for many who think I am some sort of a freak who  can keep an eye out for them, always.


Its amazing how people, especially  during my first few interactions with them, they don’t even know what’s my problem and still sympathize my condition. Don’t sympathize my condition I am totally healthy, and normal and not disabled (shit, oops I have to be politically correct as well ) differently able. Only thing different is I sleep less, a lot lesser than you, less  than 50% of what you do. Continue reading
