Well, it looks like our apartment is not quite DSL ready. Why? Because our phone lines don’t work when it rains, or when it has rained, or maybe when it is about to rain. So, basically: never, with being monsoon season and all that, except, of course, when the landlord is over to convince himself that the phone is not working, so that he can call MTNL, who would then have to certify the line as being faulty, so that the landlord can ask an electrician to fix it. Needless to say, nothing has been fixed yet.
Too bad, because there’s lot’s of things to talk about, but for now, just this: We spent the weekend at the Osho Ashram in Pune, we fired our maid, and, oh, yes, our phone still isn’t working. More on that when we are back online; it could take a while, or it could be tomorrow, noone can say for sure.
