Loyalty Mis-management: Barista sells (happens only in India) a loyalty type card for Rs 100 which allows you to get a 10% discount at all its outlets. Or so the card says. But, the card gets declined at the Barista outlet at Bangalore airport as I found out to my disappointment. Funny thing, this outlet does not even show up on Barista’s web site. Writing to Barista of course yields the same result as writing to any retailer in India. Rude radio silence. To me, that implies either the Barista outlet is fake or their claim on the loyalty card is fraudulent. I will let you decide which.
CWG Delhi: For the first time ever, I saw a waterlogged overpass in Delhi. Also drove through the cantonment area to realize a city can still be run well, and it reminded me of the way Delhi used to be during my growing up years. Neat, organized and beautiful!
