Digital Route

This morning (27 Oct) there was an article in the newspaper re the increasing trend in India of using digital route in money and financial matters. That inspired me to have a check – how much do I use this digital route?
I use the Microsoft Office extensively since a long time; recently I have started using their OneNote.For the past 10 years, I use Net Banking. Not just for checking balances, but also for transfer of funds through NEFT.I receive my credit card statements through e-mail and I pay these via net banking. The subsequent receipts saved in my Cloud.I receive bank account statements through E-mail and save these in a Cloud account.Telephone Bills I receive monthly through E-mails and BSNL portal. I pay the Bills through Net banking and the receipts thereof I save in Cloud account.Mobile recharging (Pre-paid) amount for our three mobiles is through AirTel portal, and paid through my Net banking,Railway Tickets I book through IRCTC portal. Ticket Fare paid through Net Banking.No …

A new SIM Card 8870954851.

As I put the previous SIM card, 50860 48545 in the Micromax phone, the old Nokia Asha phone needed a new SIM. We wanted to use this phone also as it was just 1 year old.

We purchased a new prepaid SIM from Airtel, MG Road on 01 Oct 2014 with number 88709 54851. Normal size SIM and I inserted it in my SAMSUNG phone. It was activated on 7th October only! Within 20 minutes of its activation, I asked for and got a new MICRO SIM from Airtel for Rs 25.00. Same number 88709 54851.

It was activated on 8th Oct, I inserted it in Micromax phone as the second SIM. Once Arvind returned from Hanoi, I took it out and inserted in NOKIA ASHA on 12th October.

Now, we have THREE working phones with the following numbers :

1)  SAMSUNG PHONE, SAN, 98408 27434, Normal size SIM




Venkataraghavan (aka) VIJAY

VIJAY, son of Jayaraman, passed away on 20th September 2013 at Puducherry.

His annual rites were on 9th, 10th, and 11th October 2014. [Thurs, Fri, and Saturday]

Jayaraman performed the first two days' rites at Mambalam. The earlier Unamaasikam was also done at Mambalam.

The Grekkiam (Subasyam) was to be performed on 11th at Jayaraman's Chennaipattinam house; he had asked all of us to come and attend and we agreed. But suddenly, for reasons known to him, he announced, "I have cancelled the Grekkiam; need not come." So, none of us went on 11th Oct (Saturday)

Thus, the rites of Vijay were "performed."
