Airtel has introduced Start / Stop Service which provides Airtel customers an easy & instant way to activate or de-activate any Value Added premium service of their choice under one window of Interactive SMS session by sending SMS to the toll free number 121.

Airtel Start/Stop service enables you to view and manage all your Value Added Service service through an interactive SMS session. You can reply to the SMS with the number against the service which you wish to START or STOP. The Airtel Start / Stop service works from your pre-paid as well as your post-paid connection.

There is no cost to view the services under the Start & Stop menu, however to subscribe to any of the service under the Start menu, you’ll be asked to confirm your choice after the applicable charges have been mentioned. To Stop a service there is no cost.

The Airtel Start Stop service works from all mobile phones. For GPRS enabled services, Airtel live needs to be activated.

If the customer sends START to 121, then the service checks for all the subscription services not subscribed by the customer & presents those services through an interactive menu with numerical replies.

If the customer sends STOP to 121, then the service checks for all the services subscribed by the customer & presents them to the customer for further action.

To subscribe to a service or unsubscribe from a service, the customer has to reply to the menu message with the number mentioned against the service. Once the system receives a response from the customer, a confirmation is sought to avoid any confusion, post which a service is Started or Stopped. You will receive a confirmation message confirming the activation / deactivation of the service.

Burhan Wani – The man and his mission

Burhan Wani – The man and his mission The death of a young ‘hero’? On the 8th of July, Burhan Muzaffar Wani died in the Valley of Kashmir. Thousands poured out on the streets to commemorate his services to the movement that he had come to symbolize of late. The relative calm of the region was shattered with curfews, killings and allegations of human rights abuses. His father was proud for the services his son had offered in the name of their faith, convinced that he would go to Heaven. Amidst all this, the romantic ideals of a young boy, just off his teens began to shake up the youth of the entire country, both in and beyond India. There is a lot of unrest in the Kashmir Valley recently, especially in the aftermath of the death, nay execution of Burhan. All of this is not unexpected in any way. In fact, this was foreseen. Even his glorification, his elevation to the status of a martyr in the service of Islam does not come as a surprise to me.

Letters, open and counters

In this Information age, the opinions of people are shaped by the discourse that happens in the media – the newspapers, the internet forums, the videos that are shot, the letters, open letters and counter letters. A vast majority of them are full of half-truths and that is not surprising as every side has skeletons to hide. The problem arises when a gullible population (read Indians) digest these printed words both offline and on as the ultimate Truth without question. Secondary sources and even imaginary accounts becomes Gospels to be used to shut anyone who dares to oppose the mainstream discourse.
The Quint has recently published an open letter by a veteran soldier of the Indian Army named Major Gaurav. They apparently waited for a counter to that which was furnished by a Wasim Khan, a ‘Kashmiri’ who now is settled in Mumbai and runs a successful media agency (not surprising). So before we go into braindead blaming attempts, let’s analyze the two pieces one by one and check the m…

The Man and the Qu'ran in Bangalore

I stayed for 3 years in Bangalore. There were places I loved in the city, places that I liked and a few places that I hated. There were also places about which I cannot make up any opinion at all.

Among them was the Jumma Masjid on the Dispensary road. This is not to be confused with the more famous Trust by the same name that is close by.

The area around is always busy and the commercial street is also close. The markets were always full of customers, shopkeepers sold exotic items. Just a few hundred meters and you could also visit the markets selling lots of stolen goods, though the shopkeepers often deny that and then wink to show that they were bluffing. It is a fun place for a man to be in, a bit scary for many women, except in a crowd.

Anyway, I always found the place inviting in a peculiar way, the nearby Salafi mosque preaching the evils of other religions, the stench of the urinals, the cheap stolen goods in the market, the prostitutes on the road, the hustle and bustle of t…
