Migrate, Adapt or Die

I happened to see an article in Newspaper the other day on Migration.

If you have no specific talent still there is a way!!!
Avail a MTNL -Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited –internet connection- broadband -at New Delhi. Wait till it becomes faulty.
Call customer care (Number 1504) and lodge a complaint that the internet connection is faulty.
They will be very prompt in giving you a token number rather than attending the work.

Again give complaint to customer care center and repeat procedure shown above.
Mean while give complaint in writing to higher officers in Kidwai Bhavan also. Let the complaint be there enjoying the breeze of wind and seeing the panoramic view of the city.
