Yeah hi kaushik…..Nice to get a hello from you..Well 2010 has set in but bringing sad news with it every moment or the other…But still one has to accept this hard fact i.e “Death is the one and only truth of life.” which all of us doesnt really come in terms with it cause we have to loose somebody closer away to some unknown place..


Yes, some people are jeleous in BSNL. Nothing to say more. Just tuned in for something you never expected after compleation of 3G auction.

I got a chance to test BSNL 3G (actually 3.5G) internet speed. It’s very very fast. I am sure, BSNL can shine in the sky like a Sun. Others will become dimmed by the light.
