Airtel Start Stop Service 121 – Activate or De-activate Premium Services

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.

The popular services under Start & Stop option are:

  • Hello Tunes
  • Missed Call Alert
  • On Demand Services
  • Friends chat
  • Cricket packs
  • Astrology on Demand
  • Phone Backup
  • News / Devotional alerts / Jokes / Sports, Tips

Once you start the SMS session, the gap between your responses should not exceed 5 minutes. If you exceed this time limit, you’ll have to initiate the session again by sending Start or Stop.

You can Start or Stop only one service at a time. To activate / deactivate another service you will have to send start or stop to 121.

Every service has its own activation & deactivation time. This is mentioned in the confirmatory SMS you will receive.

Sri Sri & Homosexuality – Another media hit job in the making

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (henceforth named as Mr. Shankar) is not new to controversy. Not even with topics like homosexuality. What the event wasAt an event in the Jawaharlal Nehru University, Ravi Shankar gave a talk on the occasion of the Nehru Memorial lecture on 13th November, 2017. One among the audience lamented that he was ill-treated since he was known to be a homosexual. Then Mr. Shankar stated that he needed to accept himself as he was and love knew no boundaries. Let’s see and hear what he said…Let’s quote Mr. Shankar verbatim as reported by some of the newspapers.
You treat yourself better, doesn’t matter how others treat you. You don’t think you are sick or something’s wrong with you. If you stand up, nobody can insult you… But if you feel weak and meek, and if you feel bad about yourself, nobody can make you feel better.’ Indian Express reported this in addition as well. Let me quote it directly here as well.
This is your tendency now. Just acknowledge it and accept it, and kno…

Salesmen of God

Christian evangelicals are similar to parasites[1]. The similarities are simply astounding. Among all predatory religions, Evangelical Christianity has done, by far, the greatest harm to humankind[2]. Like leeches, the Evangelical sucks the lifeblood of an unchristian society till it descends either into chaos and incessant civil conflict or the relegation of the culture to the pages of history(Bowden, 1985). Even in the 21st century this unashamed activity continues(Bhosle, 2003).[3]
Evangelicals usually have a similar methodology when it comes to proselytization. Like parasites, the target is usually one belonging to the most vulnerable section of society. This does not necessarily mean that they try harvesting only the most down trodden of the society(Kelly, 2001). And most certainly, the objective is never the upliftment of the persons involved. The target groups may, for example, belong to ethnic minorities, refugees (both economic and political), caste groups, the poor and the si…

Once again in Mirik

This is a guest post by my mother, Lily Ray Gangopadhyay.

Once again in Mirik after 17 years, I felt very nostalgic because when we used to visit this place, my sons were little kids. Mirik is one of my favorite places. In 17 years it has obviously changed a lot, but still it remains sparsely populated,little crowded and a clean place.



Dad striking a pose (caption by Sarthak) Since this hill station is not at very high altitude one can enjoy a very comfortable stay here and the roads are very inviting.The lake is the main attraction of this place, the Buddha monastery,view point are very nice. I was lucky that the weather was so clear that Mt. Kanchenjunga was clearly seen all the time. Just for a restful walking around the lake, sitting on the grass and gazing at the bushes of pine and fur trees and the peaks of the Himalayas, this is my most preferred destination.
