Unrelenting Telemarketing Calls -- Best Way To Make Use

Unrelenting Telemarketing Calls -- Best Way To Make Use

These are the days when most of the businesses thrive on potential tele-sales. This trend is copied from the Western hemisphere to India but interestingly, the way it has been copied and developed here seems to be quite amateurish. The private entrepreneurs who pitch the business deal for the major clients, in order to save significant ex-chequer, employs just passouts or passing-by grads. While this is a welcome measure and appreciated stand that they are magnanimous to provide a good measure of employment to people, supporting the administration of the country, the sad part of the story is that they feel stingy to impart the basic communications skills training.

When I say communications skills, I am encompassing a significantly wider range of topics including neutralized accent to cover a wider sector of people, professional message conveying skills, diplomatic way of handshake with the tele-customers, so on and so forth. I don't think the just passouts can be expected to have this by default and it should be the duty of the employers to have the same reinforced on them, which they fail to so.

Well. This is the background of the story. Let us stop debating on the high-level topics on the same, which build boredom. To bring in some life and humor, let us narrow down to a few set of calls that we normally recieve. If there is a reader, who would like to add a couple of points to this, please feel free to do so.

  1. Private Banking Enterpreneurs issuing credit cards opening up a plethora of offers.
  2. Finance institutions offering personal loans
  3. Unsolicited Insurance Offers
  4. Recruitment and Placement Consultants

Are these telemarketers really trustworthy? I think the answer to this question can be a summary 'NO'. In my view, the trustworthiness comes purely via a stronger ethical educational foundation. Anything sans this, would stand testimony of crystalline hypocrisy sooner or later. This can be significantly proved with a lot of examples in any of the quarters including the ones listed.

Some examples of risks involved with a credit card telemarketer who does not properly introduce or proves transparent between the finance institution and the customer would be the credit card number may be illicitly divulged to third parties resulting in malicious use. In the case of placement consultants, resumes of women candidates may result in excessive number of eve-teasing cases. Even otherwise, there might be cases of extortion or forgeries.

In my opinion, I would suggest that unless the answered call from a telemarketer, if does'nt comply to proper communication skills, I don't see a valid reason to continue the conversation. The mobile handset, I hope, has a key called 'Hangup' which can be immediately resorted to. I don't see a valid reason of courtesy too in that case. This also behind the scenes results in good amount of traffic saving for the telephone network, for bona fide calls. At the same time, picking up the call adds to the ex-chequer of the telephone network, and I would appreciate that.

The telemarketing clouds in India would get cleaner only on cooperation of the people and as well by cleaner business practices of the enterpreneur and the beneficiary business house concerned.

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…
