Sukh Sagar, Koramangala, Bangalore

Last Sunday, we had dinner at Sukh Sagar located in 100ft Road, Koramangala, Bangalore. Its a pure veg restaurant.

The food was tasty. The service was very quick and good. The price was reasonable. We (two persons) had mushroom chilly for starter and naans with paneer butter masala for the main course. We paid..


Having a good experience with this restaurant for more than a couple of times, I went for a dinner with my relatives. And this time, I had the very worst experience.

First we had Cream of Mushroom soup, Mushroom Chilly, Gobi Manchurian and Veg Spring Roll. Mushroom chilly and Gobi manchurian tasted bad. There was no freshness. And I tasted the worst Veg Spring Roll which was full of oil and half cooked.

Then when we ordered for paratha and other roti stuffs we were said that it will take more time. We were provided with the option of Dosas. And we went with plain dosa and onion dosa.

Post-paid to pre-paid conversion - Airtel

Recently I changed my post-paid Airtel connection to pre-paid connection in Chennai (Tamil Nadu). I thought its worth to post here what one has to do for converting the post-paid connection to the pre-paid connection .

First it is a must to visit a near-by airtel showroom for doing this. We need to carry the following while we go there,
  • a passport size photograph,
  • an address proof (driving license) and
  • an ID proof (pan card).
On providing the above, the airtel customer care executive would give  a form for buying (Rs. 50) a new sim card. This new sim card is for the prepaid connection we are to get. Then we have to pay the outstanding bills (if any) for the post-paid connection we are to close. After which the processing for post-paid to pre-paid conversion would be initiated by the airtel customer care executive.

After initiation the whole conversion process would take at least three days. First the sim card for the post-paid connection would be de-activated within three days from the day we applied for the conversion.

After that we should replace the old sim card with the new one.  And then we have to call the airtel customer care (I was asked to call 59059) from the new sim card to activate it. Unless we call the airtel customer care and provide the information (like name, father's name and address) they ask for confirmation, the connection won't be activated.

Once you call the customer care and confirm your identity, the sim card would be activated within next 15 minutes.

படித்ததில் பிடித்தது - சோ, எம்.எஸ்.விஸ்வநாதன்

சோ அவர்கள் எம்.எஸ்.விஸ்வநாதன் அவர்களைப் பற்றி:  
தோல்வியை எப்படியாவது தாங்கிக் கொள்ளலாம். ஆனால் வெற்றியைத் தாங்கிக் கொள்வது கஷ்டம். தலைக்கனம் ஏறாமல், கர்வம் புகுந்துவிடாமல், அகம்பாவம் படிந்துவிடாமல் வெற்றியைச் சர்வ சாதாரணமாக எடுத்துக் கொள்ள வேண்டும். அப்படி எத்தனையோ வெற்றிகளைச் சந்தித்தும் தன்னைப் பற்றி மிகையாக நினைக்காமல், தொழில் சிரத்தையோடு இப்போதும் இருப்பவர் விஸ்வநாதன். அவருடைய வெற்றிகள் அவரிடம் வெற்றி காண முடியவில்லை என்று சொல்லலாம்.

Team Outing @ Angsana-Oasis Spa & Resort

This week we had the team outing at Angsana-Oasis Spa & Resort, Main Doddaballapur Road, Addevishwanathapura Village, Rajanukunte, Bangalore-560064.
The Resort is a good getaway from this Bangalore city life. The resort is beautifully made. Though I didn't get to see the resort fully due to the team activities we had, I happened to see the well maintained green lawns surrounded by trees and the cool swimming pool.

The architecture of the resort is very pleasant making it to be a good place to chill out.

The downside I can say about the resort is the food they offered. From the welcome drinks to lunch then to the tea, they failed to impress.

We had some external organizers for the team activities over there. They made us into three teams and organized around six games.

After that, some of us played Volleyball, some of us played cricket and some played the games of their own interest. And around 17:30 Hrs IST, we left the resort.
