Day Dream

It was a normal weekend for me, got up early at around 6 and at around 7 i was on my bike to play squash and then a swim. After a few good games and some time in the pool i returned back to my home at around 11. After a heavy breakfast, as there was no power at home i thought i will read newspaper resting back my head on the pillow.. Usually i don't sleep during day time but never knew when i got sleep.

It was a sleep in which i felt i was awake and was visualizing something, something strange a thought which i wanted to experience it was pitch dark every were yet i could see everything around me something like under a bright full moon day.. i had a view yet it was limited something like that. I was below a huge falls standing alone in front of it... huge rocks all along i couldn't hear anything other than the sound of the water gushing ferociously along the rocks, it was water all around...I shouted loudly as hard as i can to supress the sound of water just to enjoy it, i could see the huge falls in the moon light. I slept on a huge rock alone watching the falls fall down in front of me... i kept watching to understand what it all meant? It was an amazing experience i feared the darkness, i was alone yet the mystery held me to explore the panic. 

Well i am not sure what it all meant however i felt the falls was similar to jog falls at its best. Now probably i can only say if at all it was true or not by experiencing this moment on a full moon night all alone below the mighty falls :-). Sleeping on a mighty rock in front of the huge falls watching it fall down with that sound and me shouting at it to my limits. What would be more fearful the darkness or the sound or the water or my loneliness ?

Bike Service

My bike was in perfect condition but since its my practice to service my bike once in 3 months I had given my bike to the authorized Bajaj Service Centre. Since this is the second incident which is happening with me i am writing down the same.
I collected my bike after a routine service after paying an hefty amount of Rs.709. I only had 2 complaints before i handed over my bike, indicator was not working consistently and i had asked the mechanic to improve the mileage. They had charged me Rs.40 for wiring however after collecting my bike i could still see my indicator working inconsistently. However after 2 days my bike started to stop in between while driving. Initially i guessed it was due to idling problem however even after increasing the fuel injection the bike used to stop while driving. One fine day when i was late to home and it was raining heavily my bike didn't start at all, i parked my bike in office and left with my friend. Next day with great difficulty i managed to take my bike again to the service centre and insisted on proper checking. Well the worst thing was without even a proper test they just removed the spark plug and replaced it with a new one charging me another Rs.75. Now it started and was running smoothly for 3 days after which i am facing the same problem again.
How did they ever decide my spark plug was not in good health? Had they ever tired it on a different bike? It looks more of irresponsible work done by the team towards a customer with total negligence. After taking up the issue strongly now they have taken back my bike to the service station. Now if something is wrong do i need to pay for that? Well right now i am not sure but this time probably if things are not sorted out properly I might have to look at other options of taking some legal action against the same. One thing i have observed is the concept of repairing of a part has been changed with replacing the part with the new one, there by charging the customer.
This is an experience I had with Jatti Motors, Ali Asker Road, Bangalore (Job Card no. 04803785 and Invoice no. 04725622).
