Thank God its India!

Huh!!! Yeah I am back after a long, long hiatus. Blame it on my trip to Israel, my house shift, Diwali @ new house with entire family, Darshit's Birthday or Airtel Connection :)) Everything added it's bit to my laziness to write in such agile surroundings!

Believe it or not, after experiencing all the above events, the words that come out of my mouth are 'Thank God its India'.

One day I and Darshit decided to move out of our existing house to a new one! Don't ask us the reason. We both were really excited. And we both were really exhausted. We had just returned from our Israel trip. But then we had to move out of that house before Diwali.

This is when I happen to mention about my house shift program to one of my friend who doesnt stay in India. And... it just added to my exhaustion! She described what an uphill, tiring and frustrating task it was for people staying there! You have to pack, load, unload and arrange things on your own. And it didn't stop there because you do not get such cheap labour anywhere else. So cleaning the old and the new house is your job!

I got jittery! Diwali was just 4 days away and all our family members were joining us for Diwali celebrations!! I was speechless at the very thought of shifting!!

We had only 2 days left to shift when Darshit got a Movers & Packers number who agreed to move the entire house starting from packing, loading, unloading and arranging in minimal amount. Yeah they arranged our house! It was quite a smooth shift as cleaning the new, old house and arranging all small, big items didn't cost us much time and energy. Our family joined us in the new house for Diwali and they were so happy to see such an easy shift to a new place! And within 2 days, we found maid, cook and grocery/vegetables door delivery service! No wonder I was in India. The shift was followed by Diwali and then Darshit's Birthday! And we could manage to celebrate both with a bang! At the end of it, I could only say - Thank god I am in India :)

@Mohan: U wont believe, Airtel denied us to transfer connection saying that they do not have empty slot but when we asked for a new connection with Airtel they provided us the connection!! Everyone wants business I guess! Be it Airtel!!

Gr8 that your are back and true that 'it happens only in India' .... You get lots of free stuff thrown in as a competitive deal.... often we ignore some of these really useful comforts :D

Talk about moving.. The last one was my 3rd move. One of them inter-state!!

You bet they are painful !

Nova said...

It may sound funny.. but Movers and Packers are a lot cheaper and more efficient in Singapore... In India, the concept is just picking up... :)

Vineeta said...

@Nova: If the concept is just picking up here.. then i wonder wat will be the result when its perfectly set here :))))

Nova said...

The result will be a better service at unimaginable costs!! :) The result of stiff competition in the market :)

It is nice of you to acknowledge the good work done by the movers. Usually, we note these services, that is, things that cannot be touched or felt, only when they are absent. We rarely stop to recognize the good work done by a pizza delivery boy or a bank teller. We usually take them for granted. Nice post.

Also, thanks for visiting my blog. Please do come back.
