OK so I have spent 45 minutes trying to make a post only to realize that nothing is fully working on sulekha, the form for ad posting doesn’t work in firefox and google chrome, part of the form is not even visible in firefox and you keeps on wondering where is the submit button ? the form only works in internet explorer (may be sulekha developers are still working on IE?)
I was rejected twice by payment gateway so eventually had to pay Rs 110 through my netbanking only to realize that the ad went in wrong city!
In one of my earlier post, I had covered some problems which I am facing with Shaadi.com, so I went ahead and subscribed to bharatmatrimony premium service too, so now I am a paid member of both sites, have used them for over 15+ hours atleast and have spent lot of time exploring features, profiles etc.
So here is my comparison of both matrimonial websites, Shaadi.com vs BharatMatrimony.com
If you are coming to Bangalore first time to live here permanently (congrats for your new job btw), be ready to have a painful journey to find a Paying Guest (PG), Shared room or Apartments (1BHK, 2BHK and 3 BHK), it is not that that there is a shortage of them, it is just that you won’t be able to find exactly what you are looking for before spending lot of time going places to places.
First thing first, you have to pay “nice” 10 months advance for apartment rent which the owner of the flat will put in fixed deposit to get 7% interest rate, meaning, if you are married and looking for a 2 BHK for 10k, you have to give 1 lakh as security deposit so you don’t “run away” with the flat. If there is anything like “legal organized crime”, this is it. The person who came up with this genius idea of 10 month advance rent should be awarded some big price of economics for his work on “wealth redistribution”
If you are a paid user of shaadi.com, I am sure you too must have noticed the possibilities of improvement in Shaadi.com, I mean after spending hours and hours you can barely see any unique profiles, for some unexplained reason, shaadi.com keeps on showing same profiles over and over again every time you logs in, how difficult it can be to not to show the profiles which you have already seen or to have a history tab which can show the last 100 profiles which a person has seen ?
2 more things which I am not able to understand about shaadi is
If you are a member of Shaadi.com and looking to upgrade your profile to Premium membership, which can cost you anywhere in between Rs 1200 to Rs 5000, you have an option to save 20%-30% money by using Shaadi.com coupon code GDPM2530
If this Shaadi.com coupon don’t work, you can check http://www.retailmenot.com/view/shaadi.com for more working coupon codes
I have a reliance netconnect which I uses when I travel (and it does work well) but the problem came from last month when I was about to travel and I want to change my plan from the minimum Rs 250 (pay as you go, 1 Rs per MB) to Rs 1750 Plan (15 GB) and I was told that this will be done from next payment cycle!
What I used to do till now is, since I already have an Airtel 2 mbps unlimieted connection, I never uses netconnect when I am home hence I keeps it as the minimum Rs 250 Plan and whenever I was about to travel, two days before I used to call reliance netconnect at 022-30335555 and used to ask them to change the plan to Rs 1750 one which they used to immediately. But now the process has been changed and Rsliance only changes the plan on next payment cycle.
Yesterday I was thinking of state of neurology in India i.e. how far the healthcare has come in neurology which to me is always “the” area where we as humans have to explore alot. I was checking some neurology treatment offered in India and found this post which talks little about the types of surgeries and treatment India is offering and I was surprised to see CCSVI too as it is not offered in too many countries and hospitals. I am very sure that atleast 5-6 major hospitals are offering this treatment in India.
Now India just need to start giving approval of cloning and stem cell research as India has penty of scholars and skilled doctors to take it further.
Few days back, I had made a post on Tatkal ticket booking and how it works, now here is another post on how inefficient the system is.
I am trying to reserve a Tatkal ticket for the last 4 days, each day I am trying to book the ticket through IRCTC website and the site doesn’t work from 8 am till 10 am. It is impossible to book a tatkal ticket as there are only 6 available per day for the train I am trying and it looks like they are getting taken in first 2 minutes itself.
Have you ever missed your Indian train ? well I have and I know it is not a good feeling because not only all your plans gets changed, you will also suffer some financial loss.
So here are few tips and suggestions on what to do to minimize the damage when you miss the train
