Competition and Population

I've often got bad service from "service providers" - hotels, restaurants, phone services, Internet services etc. I guess that's due to the population in India. If one customer goes back unhappy that doesn't really make a difference, because there would be hundred others already waiting in the queue.

You, as a, service provider would get your share of customers and profits, no matter how bad you are. Thanks to the population.

One solution could be, to write about the bad service you got from a provider and make people aware of it, but often there aren't enough options, for others to choose from. Inevitably, the bad service provider is going to get some customers. What's the way out?

Looking through the view finder

After a trek, I had an interesting conversation with Ritesh, about taking pictures during a trip. He said, he started to realize that when he's lost in the cycle of click, see, analyze, click, … when he's got a cam in his hand. He didn't have a cam on this trek and thoroughly enjoyed it!

I connect to this phenomenon, as well. I think, like Ritesh says, having separate trips for Photography makes sense. On other trips, we could be clicking, but just for the sake of memory. Trying to get amazing photographs shouldn't be a goal. I should refrain from -

  1. looking at the output and adjusting repeatedly until it's perfect.
  2. clicking too many pictures in a given length of time.

For both of this, a film camera seems to be the solution!

What say, Ritesh?
