CallAtHome - convenience and comfort

Mrs Majumdar dreads big cities. Its been three years since she came to Gurgaon from her home in a tiny hamlet of Madhya Pradesh.  She was not very enthusiastic about but after death of her husband, it made sense to shift with her only son, Rakesh who has a job here. But as her son  and daughter in law are at work, she feels helpless at times, especially when one time she needed a plumber to fix the kitchen faucet and she couldn't find one. Rakesh had called in someone and all the haggling over price had her mentally drained.

Reema is a recent divorcee and she is loving her new found independence. She has moved in recently into a new flat with her daughter and is busy furnishing the new house. But sometimes she feels she could just hire a driver for a day or two, especially when she has to go over to her mother's sister's house in Noida. She likes going their for the change and longing for family but driving through is tough for her at times.

Mr Pathak has a house in Gurgaon which he uses just for 12 days a month when he has to come down for business from his home in Sonepat. But getting it all cleaned up takes up a lot of his time and he has trouble finding reliable people to deep clean it.

Fortunately for Mrs Majumdar, her son Rakesh, Reema, Mr Pathak and other residents of Gurgaon, a new app service  CallAtHome has started. Through this app, Rakesh can just book a plumber over his phone and Mrs Majumdar has nothing to worry about price or service. Reema can hire a driver for those trips to Noida and can relax over the way as a trained driver from CallAtHome drives her through.  Mr Patahak can now just order a deep clean service through his phone while on way to Gurgaon. A team of cleaners will deep clean his house to his satisfaction.

Apart from above mentioned services CallAtHome also provides other services like Electrician and AC maintenance services. All team members are carefully vetted by the company and are properly trained. The company is led by IIM graduates and very soon they plan to replicate the success in Gurgaon to other cities.

Here is all the best to the team CallAtHome,
The App is available at Google Play Store and  through Apple Itunes  as well
And yes they are active on Facebook too -

Does India Need communal parties?

I think, it was Tan's post on this blog itself, Republic Day Event, where this question was raised. My answer. YES. we need communal parties even in Independent, Secular India. Now let me take you, back to events before 1947. When India was a colony of the British Empire. The congress party, in its attempt to gain momentum for the independence movement, heavily used Hinduism, an example of which is the famous Ganesh Utsav held in Mumbai every year. Who complains? No one. But at that time, due to various policies of the congress, Muslims started feeling alienated. Jinnah, in these times, got stubborn over the need of Pakistan and he did find a lot of supporters. Congress, up till late 1940's never got bothered by it. And why should we? Who complains? No one. But there were repercussions. The way people were butchered and slaughtered during that brief time when India got partitioned, was even worse than a civil war scenario. All in the name of religion. And there indeed
