1090 is not terror helpline

There is a hoax mail spinning around the web and it says

"Dear all, In case you come across any suspicious activity, any suspicious movement or have any information to tell to the Anti-Terror Squad, please take a note of the new all India toll-free terror helpline 1090. Your city’s police or Anti-Terror Squad will take action as quickly as possible."

1090 is NOT a terror help line number in India. 1090 is the helpline for senior citizens, run by the city police and Nightingales Medical Trust (still I called 1090 to confirm it from airtel and unfortunately airtel says its not a valid number !!!)

So in case you get a mail like this and what you can do is immediately 'replay to all' and inform that 1090 is NOT a terror helpline.

Any body knows which is the common toll free terror help line in India and can call free from any telephone service providers ?

Team work in Bangalore

'Team work' is the keyword to success. The Bangalore kids are learning it in a 'practical way' from their way from home to school.

Today morning I noticed a small car (Maruti Omni 5 seater) which packed with kids near Marathalli Over Bridge, Bangalore. I don't know exactly the total number of kids in the entire cab. In the front seat there were 6 to 7 children squeezed and sitting. A kid is sitting on the lap of the driver too. Its happening in the peak hours traffic in Bangalore.

If parents wants to save money and they are ready to take the risk of their children, then at least the school authority should take action to stop these kind of transportation to the school.

Recently I read an article about an RTO chased a brand new school bus in the Highway and seized it because of the improper documents. Good job, but why the same RTOs are not seeing such incidents in the heart of the city.

This 'Tornado' was clearly visible from MG road too.

About Tornado:
A tornado is a violent, rotating column of air which is in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cumulonimbus cloud or, in rare cases, the base of a cumulus cloud.

Although tornadoes have been observed on every continent except Antarctica, most occur in the United States. They also commonly occur in southern Canada, south-central and eastern Asia, east-central South America, Southern Africa, northwestern and southeast Europe, western and southeastern Australia, and New Zealand.

Is it was a real Tornado came in Bangalore?
Anybody from Bangalore noticed it ?

Protect your salary account

If you are holding a corporate salary account in any Bank, take an extra measure because Phishers are target for Corporate Accounts in India.

You may get a mail into your internet banking mailbox stating that 'your account is being upgraded for security reasons. Please update your details within the next 24 hours'

Usually if you receive a mail into your banking account inbox, usually nobody will suspect its a phishing mail. Phishers are getting smart to convince you to provide the banking details to them.

The fake mail will ask you to upgrade your account and the mail looks like a genuine. It will guide you a website and will have to provide the account details inculding your password and PIN.

Once you provide the details to that website, the phishers will immediately change your account user name, password, email, phone number like your communication information with your bank. This will take the phishers to block the communication with your bank.

How you can prevent phishing ?

* Never ever provide any kind of your account details to websites especially your PIN, passwords.

* If you get a mail which looks like from the bank and it there is a link in that mail, just keep your mouse pointer on the link and observer the link bar (which is down in most of the browsers). It will show that the link is leading to some other website.

* You never get banking related mails from yahoo, gmail providers eg: citibankupdates@gmail.com . These are fake mails.

* Immediately check with customer care if you find anything specious

* Try to avoid internet browsers for checking online accounts

* Make sure that https is there in the website address

* Use antivirus program and adware programs in your comptuer and make sure that updates are happening regurerly Suggest Avast Home Free Edition and Adaware 2008 Free home

In Bangalore the phishers are targeting to 4 private banks because they are holding the Corporate Accounts

Cheating in Petrol Pump

Beware of Cheating in Petrol Pump, Bangalore. One of my reader Sana posted a comment on one of my posts about Petrol Pumps in Bangalore. I feel that people should aware of it and need special attention of it. So I am posting it here

Cheating in Petrol Pump

"Be careful of BPCX Petrol Pump - Jayanagar Servx Statxon at the South End traffic signal in Jayanagar, Bangalore. The workers here are very sly and seasoned manipulators. They seem to be old hands in this thing.

Just yesterday I wanted to fill up my tank. One of the persons engaged me in talk and was trying to convince me that using a credit card does not attract any transaction fee. This is the first time someone in petrol pump tried to persuade me to use a credit card to make the payment!! Then the person who was actually dispensing the petrol stopped at Rs 150. When I asked him why he had stopped, he told me that he heard that I wanted to fill Rs 150 worth fuel. When I told him I wanted to fill the tank, he continued filling the fuel. He did not show me the zero setting. All this while the other guy kept pestering me about payment with credit card and distracting me. The dispensing guy finally told me that he has filled the tank. This time it came to about Rs. 1180. When I proceeded to pay only Rs 1180 they told me that I need to pay the additional Rs 150 they had filled earlier. I did not have the time to argue since I had to catch up with a meeting. So I feel I ended up paying Rs. 150 more. The manager at the pump was not of much help. He seems to be mixed up with these fellows. Avoid this petrol pump like the plague." - From Sana

One more cheating what I noticed is when they give the balance, there will be a shortage of 100 or 50 rupees. If you start counting, then they will give the missing amount and say some excuse. If you are not paying much attention to your balance, your 50 or 100 will be in their pocket.

The cost of the petrol is too high now a days and every drop count. Which ever petrol pump you visit, put extra care in the petrol pumps in Bangalore, India

When the movie begins 12th century Kamal will get trouble with the 'King' Napolean and throw him into the sea with a God's Statue. After that the story moves to our present world. Scientest Hero Kamal will invents a 'BIG' dangerous bio weapon and another Villan Kamal try to get it from Hero Kamal. Some reasons bio weapon reaches to Old Lady Kamal who lives in India. Hero Kamal try to get it from the Old Lady Kamal and she will hide it inside Lord Vishnu statue. Villan Kamal also parallely chases to get bio weapon with the help of a HOT 'translator + prostitute' (Mallika Sherawat). A police Kamal also chase to get bio weapon at teh same time.

Save turtles

Olive Ridley turtles rely on an inexplicable, in-built navigation system that guides them, when it’s time for them to reproduce, back to the precise coast on which they were born!!!!

The proposed Tata port at Dhamra threatens a nesting site that is amongst the last honeymoon suites for the remaining Olive Ridleys, a highly-endangered species that swims all the way here from places as far away as Australia and the Philippines.

The world famous Iconic Iron Man from India Mr. Ratan Tata and we are consuming his products in everyday life with and with out knowing. Such a loyal customers to TATA and we are the most responsible persons to guide him if he is doing something against our nature.

Only two people can stop the port: You and Ratan Tata

Write to Ratan Tata NOW

through greenpeace to save the turtles.

Message to Mr. Ratan Tata

'Dear Mr.Tata,

The Tata name is today omnipresent in India, through a choice of affordable products and has today grown from a national giant into an international financial player. At the same time, you insist that the TATA group has a firm commitment to environmental justice and sustainable development. I am writing to ask you to demonstrate that the TATA Group does indeed have such a commitment and it does not put profits above environmental and social well being.

I am disappointed with the way Tata Steel has conducted itself on the Dhamra port issue in Orissa. There has for some time been clear proof of the irreversible effects that this huge port will have on the highly-endangered endangered Olive Ridley turtles. What is even more distressing to me is that you had clearly promised to abandon the port if evidence of turtle presence was ever unearthed, yet this promise is now not being kept. Not just that, despite the simple fact that ports can be shifted while turtle nesting grounds can not, Tata Steel continues to build the Dhamra port.

I have been a follower of the Tata story and role you are looking to play in shaping modern India. Surely a decision to protect the Dhamra area and shift your port to an alternative environmentally-benign site will be more in keeping with the image that the Tatas project, and the legacy left by men such as JRD Tata, than the current position you have adopted?

I earnestly urge you to look at alternative locations for the Dhamra port. Such a decision will raise the Tata standing in my eyes and, I am sure, in the eyes of millions of Indians, not to mention an increasing global audience.'

Send message to TATA

Act now and save us !!!
