Selecting a lawyer.
A friend called up last Sunday. His problem was that he was an educated person who had a case pending in a distant High Court and that he had a good case on merits as well as law. Case was continuing for over a decade and inspite of changing several lawyers there was no conclusion. As we discussed the friend confessed that it appears that he has been duped by lawyers in the past who promised like Kejri but simply could not deliver at all. This problem made me realize that we have new word in our thesaurus. Just to be through let me share the advice I gave to the friend. My advice to him was. Continue reading
Bad choices are sometimes more than mere mistakes.
Yakub Memon was hanged yesterday, 30th July 2015. He was found guilty of conspiracy of terrorist bomb attack killing 257 people and injuring over 700 people in Bombay in 1993. His second petition to Supreme Court was dismissed during the day. However certain legal and political intelligentsia decided that it would be in ‘public interest’ to challenge the hanging of Yakub. This public interest petition was heard during the night by Supreme Court and rejected at 3.00AM on 30th July 2015. First a little background about public interest litigation.
Public interest litigation.
Public interest litigation in India is similar to Class action suits in USA except that in India only High Court and Supreme Court have exercised it in writ jurisdiction.
A litigation can only be started by a person aggrieved. That is the law. If a cause of action is personal i.e. not relating to estate, it dies with claimant/plaintiff/petitioner. Public Interest Litigation is an exception in which a person can approach the court to seek redress on behalf of another person or class of persons if such person(s) are underprivileged or in disability.
ebay.com is run by computers and robot like humans!
A short review of ebay.com:
I opted to purchase something on ebay.com and checked out as guest. I was asked all the details and in the end I had to enter confirmation code sent on my mobile phone. For 30 minutes, I did not receive SMS, I tried – it. Yet no response. I left the page. After a while I tried to register afresh but it would say, invalid email At this point I sought help from their chat. This is the waste of time but it is hilarious. If you know anything about computers, You will ROFL, at the solution and would wonder how ignorant can be the employees of such big corporations like ebay.com. And I wonder if success now need only one talent, attract people in herds. Few fools would always pay.
Bottom line is: Can you trust ebay.com with money when it offers no help on a minor issue of registration??
Thank you for contacting eBay Live Help. My name is Bhagyashree, How may I assist you today?
I have completed registration but I am not receiving the confirmation code to my mobile. Tried resending several times.
Oh, so sorry to hear that.
Can you proceed by sending code on email?
Finally I got rid of godaddy.com.
It appears that economical hosting which godaddy.com offered was a ploy to lure people and then offer upgrade. I pondered over the question for about a month that if I should take the upgrade? But my principle is once a dishonest, always dishonest.
(Dear subscribers to this blog, if you are reading this in wordpress reader and has not received in email, please visit and follow again.)
But why be dishonest?
It is interesting thing to call somebody dishonest. You have to have a proof. I have given the proof in previous post. Godday.com has not responded to it. At all. In fact the stony silence on their part is that of a dishonest person who is caught red handed.
Big thief small theft:
A dangerous trend has emerged recently. Corporations, especially big multinational ones have learned two thing about India. 1) Law enforcement is pathetically slow and expensive; 2) with millions of consumer steal uneconomical or small amount. Continue reading
Terrible services rendered by GoDaddy:
GoDaddy has serious issues and no customer support. In fact I am not able to find customer support email on there website. When I last reported the hosting problem with GoDaddy, somebody did make comment under that post claiming to be from GoDaddy but after making a standard reply, she failed to answer my query that as to why I was not able to login when there own cPanel was showing everything as normal.
After that, I was not able to log into my account for several occasions. I changed password yet there was same reply incorrect name or password. There are some serious issue with there servers. When I tweeted about the problem, GoDaddy promptly admitted that some people had problem logging into their account. Continue reading
