Dussehra – Jammi Chettu

There are many folk lores and mythology stories connected to Dussehra celebrations. One of them is associated with offering prayers at ‘Jammi Chettu’, known as Sami tree (Prosopis spicegera).

This legend is related to Mahabharata.

The legend has it that the Pandavas had hidden their weapons on top of the tree to hoodwink Kauravas and evade another spell of stay in the forests.

They offered worship to their weapons by bringing them down from the tree top, on the auspicious Vijayadasami day, before leading a battle against Kauravas.

The reference to the sacred tree aspect has been made in the Mahabharata Book VIII: Karna Parva, Chapter 30, verse 24.

In olden days, kings used to perform pujas to their weapons and chariots under this tree.


Ion Internet – Navi Mumbai – Reviews – Pathetic Service and Network

Usually I would not go about saying bad things about people or group. But this is one experience I cannot stop sharing with you guys. We have come to an age, where internet has become a part and parcel of life. So has the smart phone. With the coming age demand of buying online and communicating with your loved ones online, the dependency on being online is very high. So usually you would have a mobile internet pack in on your smart phone and while you are at home or office you would have WiFi Broadband Internet access.

I have got one such installation done with the help of local internet broadband service provider – Ion Internet. The only thing I will have to say about them is pathetic customer service and constant network outage. In the last one month or so, I have been only able to use the internet for about an hour or so every day and often outage is for a day or two. Lately the network is down for more than 3 days and even on constant reach-out to the customer team via call center, email or complaint via app feature, there is no update or prompt response.

The customer care executive confirms that the call is  being logged and the problem will be solved at the earliest. There is never any feedback call or any confirmation via email or SMS. Even over mail they give a generic reply to the first mail and following up on which, there is never any response. I have not been able to perform numerous transactions because of this constant outage and spooky network. I have to often connect with my mobile internet to do any work.

The purpose of high speed internet was to be able to be update and be at the edge of doing any payments, offers or bookings. There has been constant disappointment in the network outage and I feel cheated for taking the prepaid package for 3 months. I will be discontinuing after the 3 months are over and never suggest anyone to take this network. I understand that outage can be there once in a while or there can be technical issues, but constant outage without any acknowledgement or promptness is a pathetic way of going about it.

We need something to be able to go about such pathetic customer service.
