The new Indian Currency!

The new Indian Currency is not new as such. It has been around for quite a while. I am not mentioning about the new rupee symbol. It is about something else.

Whenever we go to market, buy something and don't have enough change, the shopkeepers give us something else in return. Depending on the shop, most of the times it is a toffee or two. We don't mind, take it back and return to our destinations.

Playing challenged?

We see a lot of challenged people around us. They come in all forms. Short-tall, skinny-obese, rich-poor, etc. They somehow grasp our attention and many of us feel sorry about them. Have you ever thought how would you live if you have to do away with any of your body parts or its abilities. Think about people who lose their limbs or get paralyzed in accidents or lose their vision or speech or ability to speak. All of a sudden, without any prior warning, their life changes. A walking person now has to use calipers or a wheelchair.

Has the rupee really lost its value?

I was going to the market today. En-route I was thinking about the present state of the rupee and how it affects the exporters and the importers. Meanwhile, I saw two small kids, beggar types, playing. And playing with what - a rupee coin.

Bankers, please respect your customers

Last weekend I had a bad experience with IDBI Bank. We went to IDBI Bank, Saheli Marg on Saturday to discuss the Auto FD issue (an issue which we are planning to get resolved, this is another story) and to start a new RD as well. I was not aware that the relationship manager was on leave. I was told to meet another bank official regarding the Auto FD and new RD. The overall experience was bad and horrible. Read this mail for the entire incident.

Why does the "general caste" not vote?

A couple of days back the Government passed the bill for reservation in promotion. Many people were upset after reading this. And rightly so, as people would now not move up the ladder on the basis of merit but on the basis of their religious or communal background. What the hell?

You will always be your parents’ baby

This must have happened to most people in their childhood. Their parents’ would have given them money to donate to temples and pilgrim locations. May not be a huge sum of money but coins of 50p, Rs 1-2 or 10. Even, Rs 100 or 500, as per the occasion. This generally happens when children are not earning but the parents want them to do some charity for whatever reason possible.
