    Had been to this exhibition last month. there was a raffle in the entrance ticket.had entered it, forgot all about it after a week.

    Then last week got a call from a lady. the conversation went like this...

    "Mam, are you shanthi vyas"
    "yes"
    "Did you go to this exhibition...."
    "yes.."
    "you entered the raffle..."
    "Yes........."
    "Mam we are happy to inform that you won the raffle..."
    "thanks.." (hmmmmmmmm, what was the prize...)
    "Mam, you have got a family package to goa...."
    "thanks.."
    "You need to come to our office in T.Nagar to collect the prize..."
    " ok..give me the address....."
    " the address.......tnagar..."
    "Do come with your husband...."
    "My husband is out of town...."
    "Madam but our rules say you have to come as a couple to take the prize..."
    "But, my husband is not here, and this was not mentioned in the raffle...."
    "............maaaaaaaam........what to do mam you confirm to me now if you will claim the prize..."
    "I don't know..."
    "mam, YOU CAN BRING SOMEBODY AS YOUR HUSBAND...."
    "what........"
    "No, it is a good package, why don't you bring somebody as your husband...."
    By then my BP was northwards....
    "Look, whoever you are, either you allow me to claim my prize as a family, with my kids and myself...or i don't want your package....please don't give me all the crap ideas..."
    "Sorry madam...."
    The call got disconnected.....

    Even after the call was over, I was seething in anger...what has the world come over to...my friend said, you should have just claimed the prize as she says....., what would you have done....???

    hi shanthi,

    how are you? how is your health.

    krithi is very happy with sankalp. a thousand thanks to you my friend.

    these days its like this only, thats the trend. even some of the star hotels allow only couples for the new year parties. if a person is alone and is interested in these parties, they can bring somebody as their husband ......

    but since we all were brought up with human values, ethics its difficult for us to digest.

    love
    regards
    padma

    hi shanvy,

    we used to stay in hyderabad beore coming to u.s. when we were there we went for exhibition .we too got a call like this.my husband told about this to his friends.his friend said that once he went there .the people there will pressurise to take any one package by paying some money.the r all fake. they will give some discount only.

    His friend brother- in -law was CIRCLE INSPECTOR. so they left them. we never went threre.

    Hi padma,

    I am really happy for krithi. take her to kutcheries this season, if it is possible. there are lot and lot of them happening around.she will definitely enjoy.


    I cannot think without feeling bad about the degeneration of values...
