Ek Chidiya Ne Band Karwaya Gutter Ka Dhakkan! Kya!?!

Arre bhai… Sansani Vansani kuch nai. We, the poor ordinary mortals are getting deeply inspired by the Indian news channel hosts, who spew out criminally pretentious yet catchy dialogues, nineteen to the dozen to grab people’s attention.

The ‘Chidiya’ in question is the twitter logo. CHIDIYA = TWITTER. Matbal, an ‘open drain’ issue was resolved through twitter. Samjhe kya..Samjhe kya..

Raise a toast to the Ghatiya Logic pls. Karna padta hai yaar, interesting banane ke liye. :)



Anyways, toh short mein, kahaani kuch iss prakar hai….

A couple of days ago, there was this good Twitter Samaritan, who had been going all out trying to get a drain covered during the crazy Mumbai rains. He happened to tag ChangeBhai, after repeated attempts to get the incorrigible authorities’ attention went down the drain (pun intended). Refer to ChangeBhai Issue A0572, “Manhole Repair”

Our social media team sprung into action, got in touch with the operations team and had the issue taken up within minutes. A snapshot of a part of the twitter conversation as well as the issue image below, to inspire the rest of us to do the same:

Toh, bacchon…batao…. ‘Chalaak Chidiya’ kahaani ka moral-of-the-story kya hai.

Teacher…teacher….One should use social media for fun and keeping-in-touch, but kabhi kabaar aise acche kaam bhi kar lene chahiye.

(That chamcha kid in the school, though.)

Do tag us on social media if you feel any similar issue around you needs attention.



Zzzzzzzz. This is all I do when it rains. And You?

Heylo ChangeMakers!

Am sure you saw our video Rains, Love, Chai, Pakodas …And?, which was launched last week. No, you haven’t? Click here to watch it.

Dunno about you of course but I could so relate to the paper boats and the frogs bit in the rains. As kids, we used to go crazy with these thingies when it rained. Some solid timepass!

But, know what..what I didn’t see/hear people referring to in the video and what I totally do in rains nowadays is this one thing:

Sleep my ass off till it hurts. :)

Comment below if you agree with this.



Wo kya bolte hain..Watch the first drop of rain fall, feel the breeze, stop by, notice the smiles, smell the roses. Sorry, ye thoda zyada ho gya cuz all of us know what it smells like when we walk on the roads in rains. 😐

The video rekindled many fond memories but know, what the sad bit is, it’s just not the same anymore. The rains just doesn’t bring that cheer it used in the earlier days. The mess , the bad roads & the traffic just screw up the whole ‘rain’ experience, which by the way, you can report on www.ChangeBhai.in.
