Even though we have had a weird relationship, I am […]

For those who didn’t know, Poets of the Fall are doing an India tour. They were performing mostly at the Hard Rock Cafe branches and were in Pune yesterday (25th Aug, 2012).

I generally use netbanking (ICICI) as it is more affordable (Rs. 10 per transaction) as compared to using credit cards (3.5% per […]
