A stitch in a time !
See an ad of a tailoring centre. We(myself and my wife) were definitely interested in quality stitching, ok with good designing and most inviting part was “xpress delivery, within 24/48 hrs” , which was a myth, to once again confirm that we had to wait for 10 days. In a way we realized this after 10 days. We stepped in after 10 days (after no response of repeated calling) and found the cloth piece in tact. I am sure most have gone through this phenomenon. I have not met anybody who have seen anyone who have received any dress on time from tailoring shop
Now what’s the use of quality stitching,good design and all if one can not deliver on time? We are on the look out for another “quality tailor”, any suggestions?
Some interesting things around us

How to invite for a get-together? What big deal? You must be thinking, write the agenda of the g2g, venue, time and date, right?
That’s the normal way and people in advertising are not normal guys so when they invite for g2g its something like this

Remember 2004 election? when BJP coined the word ‘India Shining’ and campaigned? experts believed that this campaign was one of the main reason for their defeat because India was (if at all( shining only in Metros. Now thats about 2004
