Petrol bunk cheating
Of late, I am witnessing a surge in cheating attempts by Petrol bunks. (I got cheated first time around 10 years ago but looks like more people have learnt the trick).

Bottled - Bislery Water - Just like straight from the canal
I had a shocking surprise today!.

Rat menace and garbage collection in Jayanagar

It is well known that garbage collection happens door to door ALMOST every day (skipped perhaps on holidays and festivals) but does that mean we need to get rid of dustbins? A walk along many of the roads shows garbage thrown in places where there were bins earlier and this garbage gets scattered into the roads. The corner near Dayananda sagar kalyana mantapa...
