Kitne bhi tu kar le sitam

Posted on: April 21, 2012


I was at Jabalpur when this blog was started. After about 18 months later, I shifted to another -pur in another state and I was based there for two years. Now I have shifted to yet another -pur in yet another state.

The regulars of this blog may not have noticed all these changes in my bases because writeups continued to get posted no matter where I was. In fact I tried to post a few writeups even when I was on journey.

If I have managed to keeping the blog going despite changing bases, then I think I must laud the communication network that is now available. It would not have been possible for a blog like this to exist one decade earlier because a blog like this is extremely demanding on internet resources and such infrastructure was not available in the past.

When I think about it, I realise that the reach of this blog is limited by the fact that only people with decent internet connection can take advantage of this blog. Just think of those with slow internet connections. How are they going to be able to play the songs ?

If one needs good internet connection to browse the site then think of me who has to post the writeups on the blog. I need a decent internet connection too. And the things that I have had to do to ensure decent internet connections make for interesting reading.

In western countries, broadband had come up in early 2000 itself. I became a member of a cricket forum called cricforum.com in 2005. Raja too became a member there. In addition to discussing cricket, we also discussed other things like Hindi movie songs etc. Youtube links of songs were provided and people went “waah waah, what a song” after playing them. I too joined in the “waah Waah”. In reality, I only had a dial up connection through phone line at that time and the connection was so slow that there was no way I could have watched these YT songs.But I pretended to have as good an internet connection as the members based in western countries. 😉

By about 2007,”broadband” internet connection began to be offered in India, first in metropolital cities and then in smaller places. I too jumped in the bandwagon. The internet connection in office was free, and one could have BSNL broadband internet connection at home. I went overboard with the broadband connection at home. I thought that it was unlimited scheme, but I found that the scheme I was under was not unlimited. I spend the same time on broadband internet as I earlier spent during dialup internet, but while I ran up bills of only about a few thousands per month in case of dial up connection, I found myself running up bills of several tens of thousands per month. It turned out that the scheme provided was a “cheap” scheme, where one got charged heavily for exceeding the monthly limit. On the other hand, had I gone for the “expensive” unlimited scheme, it would have been cost effective. My bills crossed six figures in three months. Had I gone for unlimited option, it would have cost me not more than a couple of thousands, but because of ill advised choice of “cheap” scheme, I was staring at a bill that was nearly one hundred times bigger ! So I learnt a lesson at my own cost that “cheap” can often by extremely expensive as far as internet connection schemes of those days were concerned. I became the highest paying internet connection user for BSNL in that place. And I found my internet connection being disconnected too.

When I began this blog, my home broadband connection was already disconnected and I was relying upon slow dial up connection. My trick of discussing the song was to patiently wait for a song to get played to the full. It used to take hours. After that, I would replay the song and this time I could get it to play in real time. Only one song was being discussed in a day so this arrangement worked out well, despite the slowness of the connection.

Once when I was journeying to Delhi by train in september 2008, I found a fellow passenger using his laptop to browse internet. It was news to me that one could browse internet without any wires. It was then that I found out that one could have wireless internet connection. After coming back to Jabalpur, I got myself a Tata Indicom wireless modem and that became my main personal internet connection. I gradually discontinued using my bsnl dialup connection which in any case was extremely slow.

After coming to the other pur, namely Nagpur, I found myself rather spoilt for choice. I continued to use my Tata indicom connection for a few months. There was the provision of getting good internet connection at home, and that too free. I made the most of this connection. After a few months, I was also given one bsnl 3g data card. It gave good speed, and it became my companion for travels, instead of the slower Tata indicom connection. I then got the later connection discontinued.

After working well, the BSNL 3g data card stopped functioning. It did not affect me much, because by that time I had already got myself an MTG 3g connection, which I was using during my travels.

In places where full speed was available, it gave “broadband” speed, and at other places, it worked in mixed mode which was quite slow compared to broadband mode. I found that Maharashtra and Gujrat are full of places where it worked in brodband mode, but it only operates at mixed mode in Chhatisgarh.

The biggest grouse that I have with MTS is not its connection, but its bill payment arrangement. It is extremely easy to pay BSNL or Tata bills online, but MTS, despite being a private organisation, has a very cumbersome process for bill payment. One does not know how much of bill is due on you, since there is no provision of finding it out online. One can find it out only when the physical bill reaches at one’s home address. And there have been occasions when the bill was not dispatched even after the last date for bill payment was over. I do not know what is the problem. Customers are willing to pay online, but they would not be allowed to do so by the company.

Now that I am in the third -pur, which is in Chhatisgarh, I find myself having to deal with erratic internet connection. This state had got great electicity supply (perhaps the best in the country, with hardly any power cut in cities), but the same cannot be said about its internet connection. At present I find myself relying on my MTS connection, and as noted above, this connection only works in slow mixed mode in this state. I have got a “broadband” connection at home, but that connection remains down when I need it. I have also realised that the staff hired by internet companies are quite inexperinced and they get stuck up while dealing with computers. The broadband connection staff has got my connection so messed up that now I cannot get connected to my office connection. His own connection is down of course. So my slow backup connection had to be used as my main connection here. I am looking for an alternative wireless modem connection that may work at “broadband” speed here. I have found that Idea connection works well here. Yesterday I got a demonstration of that. The inexperienced salesman struggled hard to get the connection going mainly because of the mess craeted in the computer by the broadband connection guy. However I found that the Idea connection has got good speed. I am interested to get that connection ASAP, but he has not yet turned up as of now. That is how it is. The buyer is keen, but the sellers (despite being private players) and not fleetfooted enough. And the inexperienced Tata saleman made me uninstall my MTS software telling me that his Idea software does not work properly with an already installed program. I do not believe what he is telling, but that is how it is when telecom companies hire inexperienced staff who know less about computers than the customers. So right now I have got three internet connections at my disposal(Home broadband, office connection and MTS) and not even one of then can be used because of the mess caused by the staff of the two different service providers whose connections I am interested in using.

It is weekend now when I have more time to devote to the blog, but seeing that I am without a decent internet connection, I see the weekend being far less productive than what I would have wanted. I will try to do the best I can from the trusty old MTS connection which at least works, even if in mixed mode and quite slowly. Waiting for the “broadband” connection to work and for the Idea wireless modem person to turn up and sell me his connection is not going to happen in a hurry, it would seem to me. How I wish I too could be as laid back as them. Wait, I am indeed as laidback as them, but in other fields. The only difference that I have with them is that I do not like to waste my time or the time of others. I am really really surprised how a seller of internet connection is not keen to turn up when he has got an eager buyer waiting up to buy his product.

Finally the Idea guy turned up late in the evening and I got the connection from him after providing the necessary documents etc. He gave me the 3g card. When will be it get activated, I asked. tomorrow at 5, he told me. 5 in the morning or 5 in the evening, I asked. “5 in the evening”, he informed me sheepishly, much to my disappointed,explaining that it took 24 hours for a new connection to get activated. And if you have any problems in operating it after the activation, just call me, he volunteered. Yes, yes, I told him, though based on how he fumbled to get the thing working for demonnstration, I do not think I would depend on him to solve my connection problems, if any. I will be able to do it myself, I am sure.

Now that the weekend has already arrived, I hope that this connection gets activated by evening so that atleast on sunday I will have this connection working in full flow. The “broadband” connection at home , unsurprisingly, continues to be down.

I recall that I had once discussed my experiences with the poor condition of a patch of road on national highway. Now I find myself discussing the condition of internet communication. What next, the condition of Indian economy, or greenhouse effect. Why not.

Incidentally, that patch of track on national highway is still the same. The good thing is that I no longer need to travel through that bad road. I can travel through some other bad road now. 🙂

In all this discussion, I was almost forgetting to discuss the song. I wondered what song to discuss alongwith my above internet related rant. As it is, Hindi movies do not have any internet related songs as such and so I will have to be look for a song of some other genre. A song, where one braces oneself masochistically, hoping that one’s beloved will someday see the error of her ways and stop her “sitam” is just the song for the occasion, I feel. So here is this song from “Sanam Teri Kasam” (1982). This lovely song is sung by Kishore Kumar and it is picturised as a light hearted romantic song on a bus. Kamal Hasan lip syncs the song and Reena Roy is the recipient of his words of endearments.

Just as I was about to post this writeup, I realised that this song has a female version too, which is sung by Asha Bhonsle, and it is Reena Roys’s reconciliatory response to Kamal Hassan’s earlier advances and it is sort of asking forgiveness for the “sitam” perpetrated by her on him.

Gulshan Bawra is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

I feel your pain brother! Though I am living in one of the best cities of the country, I am in the periphery which belongs to another state (Punjab). Internet connections go down her without any reason, as do my phone signals. Sometimes a chuk chuk gadi passing by, or an aeroplane overhead also chops off my connection, I think this happens because I am on the cusp of two networks Punjab and Haryana.

Despite this, you manage to get so much done, kudos to you and may you be favoured with a fast connection that never goes down.

Thanks for your good wishes. 🙂 And may Punjab and Haryana Networks unite :). MP and Chhitisgarh telecom networks are still treated as one network, as is the case with Bihar and Jharkhand networks, despite the bifurcation of these states.

I have to make use of great resourcefulness and inventiveness to manage to get so much done despite the slow and erratic connection that I have got. Ithink most people would have given it up against such odds.

Atulbhai,
Yahan aa jao. We don’t have any issue with internet connection. The only problem you will face is that aap ke chahne walon ki phir maange teji se badhti jayegi.
Whenever we come to India, kids get this TATA indicom wireless modem. It works fine when we are in Mumbai, but the trouble, frustration starts when we travel to some hill station or mountain area. When we went to char dham yatra in 2010, they did not get any internet connection for 14 days with this wireless modem. So you can imagine how miserable they must have felt! It’s not like a life and death situation, but every body, specially when you are in a medical profession, you need to check at least your email.
Hope you will find a better and faster connection in your may be a last pur place. Aap agar yan aa jao, to ham bhi ek gaon ka naam badalke “pur” rakh denge. 🙂

The previous -pur was quite good in this respect. Even if one connection did not work, the backup connection worked well enough. In the present place, people are more laidback and internet connection is not a matter of life and death for them. I hope that the idea connection will work well and it will become my main connection here. I have lost faith over my “broadband” connection.

I should at least count my blessings that I have not moved further east where people are even more more laid, so much so that even electricity is a luxury in those places, what to speak of internet. I in fact spent a couple of weeks in one such place last year and I mentioned this fact in the blog too during that time.

Atul, LOL at the “waah, waah” comment about youtube videos we used to post on CF. Actually, I remember I also used to get frustrated at speeds (I still sometimes do) when I used to watch videos online in India. It has improved in the last 2-3 years for sure – and will hopefully continue to improve.

Considering all this, I am amazed at how you are able to still produce so much output every single day with all these connectivity constraints. Like Pradeep says, it shows your dedication, determination and passion.

Having grown up more “east of the country” than you are at the moment, I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. 😉 It is a completely different world from the metro worlds of Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai. I’ve always felt that people living in these metros who complain about poor infrastructure should visit the rest of the country. It will be an eye-opener for them. It also shows that the divide in India is at multiple levels. Not just rich and poor but also city, town, village.

Anyway, all your inventive skills are being put to the test – and I must say you pass it with flying colours – in the -purs that you’ve been in.

Since all of us are part of this “caravan”, feel free at any time to take help from any of us if you have connection issues and therefore get stuck somewhere. I can imagine, for example, that you are in the middle of writing up lyrics and it suddenly goes down or becomes very slow. A half-hour job can become 1 1/2 hours!!! At such times, feel free to just e-mail me (or others), saying “I started this but I got stuck, can you finish it off?” Will be happy to do so. It is team work after all. 🙂

Nice choice of song to reflect the sentiment. “Hans hans ke sahenge hum”. 🙂 You could also have said “aur nahin bas aur nahin”. That song has not been posted yet. Let’s hope things improve and it does not come to that stage. 🙂

Discussion of a song that should take half an hour with “broadband” connection takes several hours with the slow connection. No wonder it takes me almost the whole day to discuss six songs. If I have to post a song or update a page, it often takes me several attempts because the connection times out.

How I get to listen to songs from internet is “jugaad” at its most creative. so when the quicker connection finally works (even if temporarily) it feels like internet heaven. 🙂

Atul ji,
I can really feel and understand your agony,helplessness and frustration at not getting what is wanted at the right time.
Though I was based in Mumbai,I had been visiting the eastern India right from Assam,orissa,WB.(United) Bihar,UP, and (United)MP for over 20 years,so I know exactly how the feeling must be.Raipur,Bilaspur,Jabalpur and the rest of the MP in those days(I am talking of 70s & 80s),you can imagine.Ranchi,Patna and straight upto Madhubani and the Jharkhand areas are all known to me.
Despite all these handicaps,I think,you are really managing the show extraordinarily ! Thanks.
I pray to God that he improves the conditions in your -pur so that connectivity and speed will not be a problem.
I am surprised to read the marketing ‘skills’ of the people selling you the inernet connectivity !.

The good thing is, I do not judge a product by the marketing “skills” of the salesmen, but by what I feel is the product worth.

Incidentally, just now my wireless broadband of idea got activated and I can already see the difference in speed. Now hopefully I will be able to make the most of my time.

hi atul
yesterday i was too busy to complement ur work. i used to feel the same abt the vsnl dial up connection when i was in mumbai. then just before i shifted to Bang i experienced super fast Broadband. and those days i used to drea getting calls coz then my internet wud get disconnected and then there used to b reconnection problems. god how tyms ve changed. and to hear that there r still places in the country that r primitive (figuratively speaking) is the kind of divide one can’t imagine. i reiterate what Rajaji has said u can always ask help from us, so that we ve our daily dose of songs.g up so many songs
oh by the way how did u accomplish putting up songs yesterday did u put it in by hand?:-)

Yesterday I managed to post the song through the slow wireless connection. In the evening my new fast wireless connection got activated and I went overboard the whole night with that connection. This morning I found that even my “broadband” connection was functioning. So today I have the luxury of two fast connections working for me, in addition to the slow connection.
