My New Job In A Mobile Service Center

On In
Recently I got job as a receptionist in a mobile service center. It is an authorized service center for some six brands: Intex, Karbonn, Lava, Lenovo, Panasonic, Xolo. My job is that, when a customer comes up with a complaint, take it to the engineers for technical verification. The engineers at first try to fix the issue with currently available resources, but most of the time, the issues might be causing due to defective parts. The defective part will be replaced within a particular time frame. The delay time depends on each brand; that can vary from seven to fifteen working days. For some brands, we should sent the phones to the head office for detailed checking. Obviously, customers feel very uncomfortable when we inform this; unfortunately they don't have any other options (Only few brands have the option to provide spare phones to the customers). I have not personally used any of the above brands, however, I feel that Lenovo's service procedure is better than others. For Lenovo, it is not necessary to keep the phones with the service center. My job also includes delivering repaired phones to the customer.

Dara Shukoh, a Forgotten Prince

On In
Medieval Indian traditions remember Dara Shukoh not so much as the Emperor's son, but as a Mystic Philosopher. The great dream of his life was the brotherhood of all faiths and the unity of mankind.

Prince Muhammad Dara Shukoh, the eldest son of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, was born on 20th Mar 1615 at Ajmer (in Rajasthan). Dara himself tells us the circumstances attending his birth in his Safinat-ul-Auliya, "As in the house of my respected father three daughters had been born and there were no mail issues as the age of His Majesty had reached twenty-four, he, on account of the faith and devotion that he had for the Khwaja Mu'inuddin Chishti, prayed with thousand presentations and supplications for the birth of a son. And with his grace God, the most High, brought this meanest slave of his into existence who hopes that he will grant him the grace of doing good and will bring to his host His goodwill and that of His friends". It's Jahangir who named his grandson Dara Shukoh, meaning Darius the Magnificent.

Rani Durgavati, the Warrior Queen of Garha Katanga

On In ,
"Her tomb is still to be seen where she fell, in a narrow defile between two hills; and a pair of large rounded stones which stand near are, according to popular belief, her royal drums turned into stone, which, in the dead of night, are still heard resounding through the woods, and calling the spirits of her warriors from their thousand graves around her". (Sir William Henry Sleeman - Rambles and Recollections of an Indian Official)

Historical Romance: Rupmati and Baz Bahadur

On In ,
Mandu, the erstwhile capital of Malwa Sultanate (now in Madhya Pradesh), is famous as the city of two great lovers, Baz Bahadur (the brave falcon), the Afghan King of Malwa and his Hindu wife Rupmati (possessing beauty). If we go through a brief history of Malwa, in 1542, Sher Shah Suri conquered it after defeating Qadir Shah and appointed Shuja'at Khan as governor of Malwa. Bayazid Khan was the eldest son of Shuja'at Khan and succeeded his father in 1555. After defeating his brothers Daulat Khan and Mustafa Khan and also several other opponents, Bayazid declared himself as the independent ruler of Malwa assuming the title of Sultan Baz Bahadur (1555-1562). He tried to invade the Kingdom of Gondwana, but his army was totally destroyed by Rani Durgavati. Baz Bahadur was the most accomplished man of his day in the science of music. Rupmati was also a musician, singer and poetess.
