IVR Systems – 1

Filed under: Aadhaar,IVR Systems,Uncategorized — anileklavya @ 7:09 pm

When you use an IVR system, most of them ask you to enter some kind of access code, such as the credit card number and other details. Combined with the fact that you are calling from your registered phone (which should be enough to identify you), by the time you reach the customer representative, they should already have enough information about you.

Then why do they always ask you to speak  out loud the same sensitive details, such as the credit card details, Aadhaar number (or the Aadhaar enrollment number and the time of enrollment).

In some cases, after you have done all that, you are simply told to wait for some more days, without saying anything about your query.

Is that how it is supposed to be? It doesn’t sound right.

Not So Old European Ideas

Filed under: Atheism,European Ideas,Nationalism,Secularism,Uncategorized — anileklavya @ 10:30 pm

Secularism is a European idea. And a recent one at that.

Indeed it is.

So is Nationalism.

Atheism, however, is an ancient Indian idea. Multiple kinds of atheism, in fact.

Poor The Hindu! It is trying very hard to establish its neoliberal credentials and to please the powers that be for years now, but it is still cursed for being anti-Hindu.

Why is it that all the ‘liberals’ and the Democrats feel it is not just their right but their duty to be outraged by Trump, a phenomenon they caused directly and indirectly?

Being Trampled

When the whole herd is marching off the cliff, if you try to walk in the opposite direction, you will be trampled.

I Know That

Filed under: Book,Death,Gadgets,Jobs,Memory,Possessions,Uncategorized — anileklavya @ 5:21 am

I know that I will lose the job

Sooner or later

After that, I am going to die

Sooner or later

After that, I am going to be forgotten

Sooner rather than later

I have no family, so no traces will be left

Except a few gadgets and a lot of books

Which will be disposed of as of no value

Some of them are already outdated or damaged

That is the end. There is nothing after that.

What more is there to know?

***

Everyone present please observe two minutes of silence.

The … has been taken care of.

Rule of Law is Dead

Long Live the Rule of Law!


It is dead in various ways.

Someplace, it is dead as dodo.

Some others, it is dying fast.

The remaining, it is on the deathbed.


It was a sickly child when growing up.

It became a fake version of itself later.

Just like the case of liberalism.

Not to mention neoliberalism.


Might is right makes a big return.

Might is the rule, and the law, in 21C.

Investigation and execution as well.

Right of might is also back with a lash.

(Not surprisingly)


If you have fake liberals.

And you have fake lawmen.

With their fake legal transactions.

(Legal or extra-legal, what’s the difference?)


What did you suppose to get?
