SBI Connected

The branch of State Bank of India near my village (SBI Vizianagaram Cantt. branch)
is now connected to the rest of the SBI network. That's where I had taken my
education loan from and to which I have been repaying all these years by taking a D.D and then sending it via Post or courier. As a result of this change I can now pay
the loan at any of the branches in Hyderabad and further I can get the information
about the same account from any of these branches. Hope I can electronically transfer
the money to this Account. How simple it has become.

Hi-Tech City Station

This happened some 2 years back. It was when MMTS (Multi-modal trasport
system was just introduced in Hyderabad). Three of us Sarath,Torture Srikanth
and myself had to go to IIIT. I suggested we board the MMTS train
at the Nature-Cure hospital (in Ameerpet, the place where we used to stay
immediately after we were out of college) station, and we can get down
at the Hi-Tech city station, and from there take an auto to our college.
Little was I aware that the station named Hi-Tech city was no close to
Hi-Tech city. When we alighted at the station, we could only see the Hi-Tech
city building at a long distance. That station was actually in KPHB IV phase.
Not knowing how to reach there, we asked a bus-driver. He too was surprised
by our question (or rather ignorance) replied pointing us towards the
Hi-Tech building :- "Just walk along the rocky stretch." It was some 3-4 kms
as the bird flies and there was no path. I was wondering why the heck did
they name the station as "Hi-Tech City".

But today there's a tar-road well illuminated exactly the way the driver
had suggested. (The road's not yet complete though.) Probably this was the
reason they called the station "Hi-Tech City". But it is sorry to find that
the MMTS hasn't really been a hit and so some of the trains during the
non-peak hours have been cancelled recently.

My Village is connected

I can now use my Airtel cellphone from my home in my native village (Tampatapalli Village, Palakonda Mandal, Srikakulam District). I noticed this while I went there to celebrate Pongal.
It was already connected by BSNL and Reliance.
