I could claim that I have an internet
connection. But to be honest, I wasn’t ever happy with it.
A 370 Kbps speed wasn’t something I
could boast about in terms of download speed, but then it was something which I
had assumed to be beyond my control.
This wasn’t the internet connection that
I had opted for myself. When I moved over to this house, I had to inherit this
internet connection as also many of the paraphernalia that came with the house,
most of which weren’t to my liking too.
I hadn’t also not really bothered to
secure my 370 Kbps internet connection and it wasn’t a shock for me to realise
that my neighbours have been using my internet too as and when they wished to.
When a well-wisher suggested to me some
time back that at least if I secure my internet connection and restrict it’s
unauthorised usage by the neighbours, it would definitely increase it’s speed.
finally, yesterday I decided to change my open internet WiFi to secure and put

for a very unpleasant surprise today early morning; my neighbour rang my door
bell to inform me that he isn’t happy about what I did with my internet
decision was after a lot of thought process and so I had to bluntly tell him
that what I do with my WiFi connection is my home matter and my choice and he
should rather mind his own business.
he drew away my cat back to my house, which he used to take home for his kids
at me that he will complain to my Internet Service Provider.
also threatened me that he would file a complaint with my society that his hitherto
free benefits have been unduly curtailed by me.
next door neighbour called me on the intercom this afternoon to inform that he
isn’t too happy with my decision and feels it’s a violation of his personal

switched off his own electricity connection and has also decided not to use his
own washroom – to show his protest.
coming over every weekend to borrow some grocery had been a common feature
since years. My wife was concerned that she didn’t approach for anything for
the whole day today.
maid was telling my wife later in the day that they served her tea without
sugar as they had nothing left at their house today.
other neighbours to whom this aggrieved neighbour had approached for support have
subtly conveyed to him that they do not reserve any right to interfere in my

much easier and faster.
I am much happier
with my secured 370 Kbps internet connection since morning.
Disclaimer: Any resemblance to the recent scrapping of Article 370 by India and the objection by our neighbouring country is purely coincidental and unintentional.
Our politicians bicker with each other clamouring for votes but when it comes to stupidity, they match each other cutting across party lines.
Stupid comments by politicians are no surprise but what astonishes is that they continue to go full throttle on stupidity, spewing senseless statements, subjecting us to dumb shit.
We may doubt their sanity, make us laugh and sometimes make us cry, but they surely seem to get away again and again even after hurting a lot of sentiments, just because we seem to have a short memory.
It’s not the first time Indian politicians have made such absurd and insensitive statements and it most definitely will not be the last, but these clearly show their low standards.
Please don’t read this and forget. Remember this whenever you go to cast your vote.
