What A Bowl Of Salt Doing On My TV?

Every time I see the ad of Airtel 4G, I swoon and then I take a fistful of salt coz a pinch of it would hardly do.

 

I live in Greater Noida, less than 50 kilometers from North Delhi, DRDO Residential colony, where my brother lives. For the uninitiated – I am living in a place within the capital of this great country.

 

My Global positioning becomes important when I see the Airtel ad.  And I envy every one of these places mentioned below in the ads of Airtel.

(Ettimadai Coimbatore)

(Umiam Lake North of Shillong)

(Mashobra, Shimla)

(Igatpuri, Maharashtra)

 

O God Almighty why I could not have been in Ettimadai, Umiam, Mashobra or Igatpuri . Why I had to live in Delhi NCR. What wrong we have committed in our previous lives that we do not have even normal Airtel connection in DRDO residential area in North Delhi where top defense scientists of the nation live; why do we have 4 stretches of four kilometers each on the Noida – Greater Noida expressway in the NCR without any mobile network for even talking; why do we have a total mobile blackout area in Pamposh Enclave bang in front of Nehru Place; Why Ettimadai, Umiam, Mashobra and Igatpuri have been blessed with such brilliant connections and we in Delhi and around fail to even talk to others on an Airtel connection.

 

It is then that I reach out for a fistful of salt and swallow it with contempt & loathing while cursing blind regulatory authorities who think that only Natwar Lal cheated people.

 

These kinds of ads of all service providers should be taken to courts. They should be ridiculed and the mobile service providers should be shamed for making a fool of consumers who are not organized enough to sue these service providers who make billions out of the gullible public.

 

And we think that TRAI is taking care of our interests and their services.
