Two nice things happened on Independence Day. For me to remember with some kind of satisfaction.
One, we met a nice person:
Our old TV was spoiled, and my husband was a little sad. To make his TV work, I searched the Internet for a service person, and got a number. I was skeptic about any response, being a holiday. But as promised within 30 minutes, the mechanic was on his way! I could not believe it. We in Hyderabad take things “chalta hai”. He took over an hour, and explained what was wrong. He also took out the mother board and promised to return tomorrow. But in two hours, he called back saying he is on his way to fix our TV! And lo, our old TV is fixed and functions very well. Thanks to that young mechanic who was very professional. A good service indeed. If anyone needs his phone number please ask.
It is odd to write a blog about this service, but given the kind of service we get nowadays, it is fitting to appreciate young people with serious attitude to work.
Second : The Kitchen garden day on 28th August 2011 is a big day all over. Bangalore and Mumbai are celebrating , by a meeting of enthusiasts. In Hyderabad too, such enthusiasts are doing their best to meet in Public Garden near, AP Horticultural society venue (organic food do) on that day. The timing is not decided yet. I give below the mail I received in this connection:
Many of you have expressed interest to meet in person. As some of the
members suggested, Can we meet at Public Gardens on 28/8/11? Please
confirm your participation.
I request one of the members to take the lead and ensure that this
meeting happens on the said day. The broad agenda could be to get to
know members and share experiences. Members are welcome to bring some
plants or seeds to share with other members.
So all you Hyderabadi Kitchen garden lovers, please come over and share your experience and enjoy!
