Network Subsystem Troubleshooting

Network Subsystem Troubleshooting

My BSNL Landline seems to be on an unannounced summer vacation since yesterday. While contacting BSNL fault booking numbers through Airtel Mobile, even the number in its own exchange is getting denied with the message 'This number is not serviced by this exchange'.

Then I devised an innovative idea of putting somebody else to call the Sangamam Call Center, Chennai servicing BSNL customers and have the fault booked. I was particular to have the fault booked at the earliest since otherwise, the queue number would be very back and proportionately, you need to give more undertable gratification to the line man to address your issue.

My friend, Seshadri, immediately called Sangamam but he, too was facing some issue in getting the customer care since only the hold music was going on for a long time, I guess. After repeated attempts, we got the docket number addressed. I have asked my other colleague in Selaiyur, to have the line man come over today and have the issue addressed.

Just thought I would post this incident for the following reasons:

  1. An exquisite get-to-gether of Airtel and Hutch numbers working together to solve the issue with BSNL landline.
  2. A word of thanks to my friend, Seshadri was having booked the fault inspite of me calling him rather late night.
  3. A unique blend of telecommunications friendship between us since normally we play with our mobiles ringing at each other in anonymous mode. And perhaps, to crown this, even his birthday celebration function ("Treasure Hunt"), to be described by VettiBoss, he had to identify me with a puzzle related to 'Anonymous caller from Triplican Exchange'.
  4. A note to Ministry of Telecommunications India that there are more renaissance to bring in the department other than also innovations galore which are most welcome.

@ Deepak and Seshadri,

Ha.. ha.. :) However I'm not seeing anon calls happening nowadays? :)
In a way...

Both of us are kind of busy in our deliverables and schedules. So the usual Anonymous Call -- Triplican Telephone Exchange has to get the back seat and wait a while.

Thank you for reminding. Though the game has been preempted with more higher prioritised tasks, it does not fail to make a greener memory of the fun and frolic that we did enjoy at Alpha Center, T. Nagar.

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…
