Inflated water bill – Jal Board, Delhi

Let me start with a brief that the premise in consideration is a four member family, who has been sent a bill of ₹ 72263. This is from the period 23rd April’15 – 30th May’15 with a stated consumption of 1193 units in 37 days.

I might not have to elaborate as the figures are surely dubious, and will be enough. Water bill for 37 days is ₹ 72263, seriously!

This is actually a work of ‘art’ as per my understanding, which we as common men or citizens are incapable of achieving, but attainable by cohort, of extraordinary capabilities.

To state this matter simply, and after running in circles from ZRO (Delhi Jal Board, opp Sadiq Nagar) to home and ZRO.

Our previous meter was replaced on 31 March 2015, and the next bill shows the consumption of 1193 units, which I am certain in not humanly possible in a residence; until and unless we have taken an oath to flood our colony and pass this off as an act of God. (1193 cubic meter = 1193000 Liters)

This anecdote will suffice to pin point, where the exact issue is, and who is to be accounted for it. Seems this is not evident to the ZRO that whole problem lies when the meter was replaced and such figure was put in the records.

Dilemma of Flipkart and Moto G, and why majority could not buy it!

Flipkart mentioned on there website, that Moto G launch will be 6th February 2014, at 12:00 hours.

This is how the whole launch was handled.

When it is mentioned that the launch is 6th feb, 1200 hours. You are not suppose to launch it at 11:45pm, 5th Feb. It is misleading info on Flipkart’s part. Which led to many loose on buying at the said time. Lucky users browsed through before time. Were really lucky and placed an order.
More over, glitches on giving the proper offer was also not expected. Like 70% off on accessory was not being executed properly. Thus leaving customer to frequently fiddle with cart, and scratching their head; as in to what is happening to the discount. In the meanwhile, the phone went out of stock.

And how can they say, we did not anticipate such a huge response for the launch. Don’t they do a market survey or analysis. As in how many hits a product get from a particular geography? How many potential buyers can the gadget/product might have. As stated by Flipkart, that they sold 20000 units. Well that is not at all huge. And if you cannot anticipate this for a product launch, kindly don’t partner with any brand per-say. Flipkart is planning to partner with Motorola, read it here.

What is the use of partnering, when you cannot fulfill the demand. Also as they have started ‘booking’ for 16G.B! This should have been done pre-launch. Not when the phone is launched, and people are left frustrated. So next time, as you are incapable of handling such a launch.

Kindly follow a pre-booking method. That will not leave people, just on luck to hit the buy now button on time. And then following 3 more steps to reach the final payment page. And abracadabra, the product is no longer available.

Might be, consumers excuse you. As this was the first time, a product is being launched exclusively via shopping portal. But we cannot forgive and overlook such a management, when you (yes you! Flipkart), claim to be the best shopping portal of India.

Game for iOS : Device 6

This a simulation game published on 17th Oct 2013, by Simogo. The link to the game Device 6


A surreal thriller in which the written word is your map, as well as your narrator.

DEVICE 6 plays with the conventions of games and literature, entwines story with geography and blends puzzle and novella, to draw players into an intriguing mystery of technology and neuroscience.

Anna wakes up in a castle on a remote island, with little recollection of how she got there. All she remembers is an unusually unpleasant doll…

Why are there two identical castles on the island? Who is the mysterious man in the bowler hat? And above all, what is the purpose of the tests Anna is put through?

Read, listen and peek into three-dimensional photographs to solve the bizarre mysteries of DEVICE 6.

Personal note :
The interface is a simple and clean. Swipe to scroll through the novel/book or story or whatever you call it. The idea behind, is to take you through a story with a little eerie background music. And interactive windows on a page to interact.
The game is meant for people who like simulation and will be definitely enjoyed by readers. People who have played Machinarium and Walking Dead and enjoy such games, can give this one a try.

Price: $3.99 or ₹220

This screen grab is from the game N.O.V.A 3. And there was this bug in the game. While crossing a bridge, i fell through the gap and landed on this amazing place. The virtual moon looked good and i had to capture it.

More bugs that i encountered… This time, this happened suddenly without falling in any pit! The only way-out was to close the game.
