Customer Service and whatnot

I cannot explain how much a mobile phone company is troubling me. It makes me think why technology evolved. I wish it was a simple postal +/- landline communication life. Internet has been a huge knowledge boosting technology but the troubles it gives are not worth it, I feel. Life would have been much more easier and simpler and happier.

When I was on the bus to Newport, Isle of wight on my way from Cowes, a drunk man on the bus was making irritating comments over how technology has grown and how annoying it is. He was saying that these technologies have become a show-off of wealth and companies are trying to trick people into losing money plus everything needs a support of a computer i.e. for e-mail communication. This drunkard man was threatening people in the bus not to use their mobile phones on the bus and he kinda got too excessive with his comments and ended up swearing and insulting the innocent bus driver. At one second, I was scared what was going to happen if my phone rings and i answer. Anyway, at that time I thought he was drunk + too much of a backward person being only in his 30s to talk like that.

Now thinking about it, I agree with some of what he said. People spend a long time waiting and speaking to customer services these days and eventually the companies make a lot of money out of these phone calls and hardly anything is done in favour to customers. All you get is mental exhaustion. Not forgetting to mention is also how rude the customer service can be if you keep on insisting them on something you'd like them to look into.

I've never spoken to anyone working in the customer service to ask them about their experience dealing with different types of people and of course its a challenging job. Nevertheless, customer services can be a real pain when they are rude to customers calling for help from a company that was trusted enough to pay for services.

With the issue I am going through now with a certain mobile warehouse company, I am ready to take it to any higher to get it sorted although I feel like I am going in circles.

Sevva Thosham and Science

At home! Had a good day today. Went to the Shiva Temple as it was PradoshaViradham today. Apparently, it was yesterday in London and today in SriLanka. I had no idea why and when people fast for Pradosham. I only had a slightest idea that it is something like Ekadasi. I got a good opportunity to talk to the priest there about religion, which is quite rare and unusual! I always get questions of why, what and how. And it was a time for me to ask some of the Whys I had in my mind though not everything. It is really amazing how science overlaps religion (in general). There is always a strong scientific aspect behind every feature of Hinduism. It was a delight to sit and listen to the priest about the religion and its science.

One of the interesting things I got to know was about the SevvaiThosham. I did not know much about SevvaThosham before as there was never a talk about it in my family. As the priest explained, a girl with SevvaiThosham should marry a man with the same thosham. And tha…

Female feticide and Sex ratio in India - BMJ

While leafing through the BMJ magazine; June, a letter on one of the articles of sBMJ May urged me to find the May issue and read it. It was about the unwelcome sex in India. I have heard about the high occurrence of female feticide in India but happening to hear a lot in the recent days on magazines and blogs.

The article touched on the dangerous traditions in India which favour for the birth of a boy than girl as boys are cheaper because of the dowry system. The high social and economic value of men is the causation for sex selective abortions in India. Though the dowry payments are illegal, it is accepted as a tradition to continue their family hierarchy and this phenomena is deeply rooted in the societies. Although is illegal to do a prenatal examinations to identify the sex of a fetus is illegal in India, if the families once known it is a girl, the fetus is terminated. According to the article, evidently there were about 5 million female fetuses are aborted every year purely on …
