Background I got married a while back. My wife and I had a discussion and both were in favour that she changes her surname. This was also based on our discussion with my sister who suggested getting it done instead of keeping different surnames for us. As we were getting married certificate, we both were surprised to find that my wife’s surname cannot be simply updated on various IDs using just the marriage certificate.
Just saw this excellent TEDx talk by Ritu Karidha (ISRO Scientist & Dept. Operations director, ISRO Mars Mission). It tells about some really hard challenges of the mission and the fact that still ISRO succeeded. :)
Recently lucky mobile users in Haryana got MNP i.e Mobile Number Portability. I too ported my number out from Airtel to Tata Docomo. Reason remains the super slow GPRS network (yup gprs, not even upgraded to EDGE in most of Haryana) and crazy service activation followed by irritating sms’es. Here’s my experience with MNP: It took around 20 days in porting of my number, and technically speaking - process is yet not (hundred percent) completed even after a month!
