An Arab was admitted in the Lilavati Hospital at Mumbai for a heart transplant, but prior to the surgery the doctors needed to store his blood in case need arises. As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally. So the call went out to the neighboring states.
Finally a Gujarati was located who had a similar type of blood. The Gujarati willingly donated his blood for the Arab and the surgery went through.
After the surgery, the Arab sent the Gujarati as appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, diamonds, jewelry, and half a million US dollars.
Once again the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned the Gujarati who was more than happy to donate his blood again.
After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Gujarati a thank you card and a box of almond halwa (sweets). The Gujarati was shocked to see that the Arab this time did not reciprocate the Gujarati's kind gesture as he had anticipated.
He phoned the Arab and asked him "This time also I thought that you would give me some thing like a Toyota Prado, Diamonds and Jewelry. But you gave only a card and a box of almond sweets.
To this the Arab replied "Can't help it, Bapu..... Now I have Gujju blood in my veins!!"

This is not what I generally blog about. But bad customer experience is too much to take. I love online shopping the comfort the ease. I have shopped at homeshop18 and ebay without any hassles. However, I faced the worst experience at Indiatimes Shopping. My worst shopping experience began the day I received a Rs 1000 gift coupon to shop at Indiatimes Shopping in a article writing contest.
I decided to purchase a basic webcam from Shopping.Indiatimes.com. I selected a webcam worth Rs. 1299 and decided to pay the amount through the Rs. 1000 gift coupon and the excess from some other means. The payment gateway took me to the payment option of my choice I paid Rs 299 and then the payment gateway was supposed to take me back to my order page on Shopping.Indiatimes.com, but Bingo! their server experienced a downtime. So I was Rs 299 poorer and my payment did not reflect in Shopping.Indiatimes.com. After following them twice I was told that within 24hrs the payment will reflect otherwise it would be refunded. Cool! These things happen.
I got the webcam few days before Diwali, too busy with the festivities I did not check it. Today I realized that they have send me webcam worth Rs 745 MRP. I have been robbed of Rs 299 +Rs 255 worth gift coupon Shopping.Indiatimes.com. Moreover, his is not the webcam I ever wanted, it has such a bad quality. Now they have registered my complain and it will take 3 working days for them to come to a conclusion.
I guess I need not say no more. Worst shopping experience ever with Shopping.Indiatimes.com. Guys do not waste your time at this site, better try homeshop18.com or ebay.com.
