The real picture of life
Airtel V/S Vodafone
As we all say “lie is beautiul”, which is very much true. But it goes wrong with thepeople living in “Dharavi” yes “Dharavi” which we all are amiliar with ater DannyBoyle’s Oscar winning movie “The slum dog Millionaire” that revolves around theAsia’s largest slum i.e. “Dharavi”.I welcome you all to explore Dharavi to see the real picture o lie or I may saya bit o real India. Dharavi is basically home to poor “kollis” a traditional communityo shermen’s. It is a congested settlement o around 7,30,225 people and has a realdense environment where lie is nothing better than a bitter experience. Dharavi isull o hustle and bustle and chaos that only India can experience. The slum dogsstarving without ood, clothes and every other basic necessities o lie is somethingcommon in Dharavi. The majority o Dharavi’s residents are Dalits (ormer untouch-ables) along with other castes and tribes residing. Hindu, Muslims & Sikhs share thesame space to live keeping themselves away rom the ght at the name o religionas these poor people are always busy nding ood to ll their stomach, and that issomething one can nd only in Dharavi. The Dwellings in Dharavi is characterized bythe homes made o tin, plywood, plastic, pukkah bricks, and sheets o asbestos. Anoverview o the entire region makes Dharavi look just like piles o earth, sand clay &other materials. Open drains run thick with untreated human and industrial waste,water taps run dry constantly and cholera, typhoid and malaria are common. There-ore one cannot imagine the condition o lie out there in Dharavi.Dharavi is not only an inormal settlement o people but a place that bustlewith economic activities too. It is located literally in the heart o Bombay, India’s com-mercial capital. Dharavi is oten described as a ree economic zone because it is reerom government licenses, taxes and municipal permission. The slum has a popula-tion o about 1, 00,000 people producing goods worth over $500 million a year. Inaddition to the traditional pottery & textile industries in Dharavi, there is an increas-ingly large scale recycling industry processing recyclable waste rom other parts o Bombay.Dharavi is a ne example to showcase that how worst the lie o poor peoplecan be, it also shows the extreme poverty prevailing in India. On one end the worldknows that India is nourishing in every eld and it is the world’s 4th largest economybut on the other hand people are dying without ood. That shows the imbalance o Indian economy. So, it’s high time or the government to make some changes andmake the lie better or the people residing in Dharavi. The only way to ree humanityo the slums is to overthrow the system that breeds them by the combined struggleo workers and rural poor around the world. I say the next train leaves rom Bangaloreto Bombay, take your pick and go to experience the real picture o lie, I will arrangea ticket or you.

Namaste! You Alien company which can’t even spell the wordphone correctly, ater eating up my pug-loving competitor and paintingthe town red; do you think you can overpower me in my own country????
Hello Mr. Bharti Airtel, I would like to take the cob-webs o your brain and inorm you that I stand or Vodaone that is the voice dataone; anyway heard you are heading towards the equatorial rain orests(S.A) …. I guess the apes and snakes are hissing a lot and your saari justdoesn’t seem to take o.
Well … rang I would just like to open your eyes to the act that Iam amidst talks with my brother MTN. I look towards creating bonds withsmarter companies. I am a negotiator and not a predator like you preyingon smaller players like Hutch, Ghana Telecom and Alltel Corp.
It’s a global world out there… I want to Brand my imageworldwide, having operations in 31 countries and partner networks inurther 40 countries… phew! I could go on about my achievements but Idon’t want to make you ‘Expressing yoursel’ look so little.
I am an Indian Brand & I believe in quality rather than widespreadnetworks which don’t work; this refects the number o subscribers thatI have managed to infuence with my high quality network and the cur-rent gures are…. Hold your breath … around 107 million and a whop-ping market share o 32.19% and the Average Revenue Per User (ARPU)o 221.68.
Speaking o numbers, I have been rated among the top 3,wherever I have my presence. I am sure you are acing tough compe-tition in India with my market share being 24.11% and around 80 mil-lion customers and Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) 192.56. My latestmascot ZooZoo created history in the marketing world; the campaignwas the most talked about during IPL 2, it attracted over 70,000 ans onFacebook and around 2.6 million page views till date on social network-ing sites, thanks to O&M or their digital hand.
Oh stop bragging about those egg-headed gibberish speakingcreatures!! as ar as ans go, my Airtel tune is played even on Vodaonephones and my love struck brand ambassadors Sai and Kareena, havelet the nation wanting more and your ‘happy to help’ was quite helplessabout it… This war will never end. The Indian Telecom industry is gearing or a revo-lution. The customer is driving this revolution and will see more uniqueand sophisticated oerings coming his way. 3G will pave the way or3.5G, 3.75G and the next big thing 4G. The rural areas which have re-mained untapped will see an insurgence o services. Also the easing o the regulations by TRAI, the ease o spectrum licensing, the FDI infux willmake the telecom space in India a must watch in the coming years andthe ery competition between these two giants is bound to continue.
