    • Cell phone.

      Mumbai Jan 9, 2017 at 7:01 PM

      I happened to have a Samsung Galaxy S3 cell phone (USA) that I plan to travel to India with. I have heard that the frequencies used by Indian carriers for GSM-2, 3 may be different from the ones supported by Samsung S3.
      Would there be someone who is using a Samsung Galaxy S3 cell phone in India and knows that it works. Thanks.

    • Getting a sim card for a cell phone.

      Mumbai Jan 6, 2017 at 8:26 AM

      I am wondering how easy/difficult would it be to get a sim card, perhaps at the Mumbai airport itself. I have all the necessary id's such as my North American passport, Driver's license, Credit card. Having access to a phone would be a definite asset. Any information in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    • Availability of Indian currency.

      Mumbai Jan 4, 2017 at 6:22 PM

      I plan to visit India for a three week period. I realize there is a currency crunch at this time (Jan. 4th 2017 today) in India. I am wondering if ATM machines in Mumbai have started dispensing out the cash? I have a couple of USA credit cards and a US Bank ATM card. Will it be a grim situation for me? I also have a couple of hundred US Dollars in cash with me. Any suggestion (short of don't come) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      Current position re domenyterisation

      India Dec 29, 2016 at 11:36 PM

      Hi travelling to Mumbai next week and have been looking at news articles regarding money shortages after withdrawal of larger notes. Kind of getting a mixed picture. What is actually happening? Is cash available at ATMs? Would I be able to get money at the airport? I have been to India a lot and understand that cash is still the main way to pay for goods and services, so therefore feeling a bit concerned. Any help/tips appreciated.

      Regards.

    • Christ University, Bangalore -- so what's it really like?

      Bangalore Dec 25, 2016 at 1:27 PM

      Is there anyone out there among our VT people who have had any experience with Christ University in Bangalore?
      I'm mainly trying to get general information about what it is like both as an academic institution -- level of teaching, students -- and as a social atmosphere. Plus the quality of the actual, physical lay out.

      Ask because I've had no experience with higher education in India and have the opportunity to link with a variety of universities (in areas of the social sciences, business, humanities, languages) -- and Christ University, Bangalore, is one of them. But is it a good choice?

      If you know the place and feel like answering -- please be frank! Much appreciated.

      Thank you. - Eurycleia

    • Allahabad Cemeteries

      by Barat Online Now Oct 2, 2009 at 12:49 AM

      My Great Grandfather was a Telegraph Master at Allahabad in 1895. It is assumed he died there sometime after 1900.

      It would be very much appreciated if some kind person can provide details of the cemetery that existed during this period, and if possible, to whom I should address my enquiry.

      Sita's Mahara? Hotel

      by janetra Online Now Jul 11, 2005 at 3:30 PM

      Does anyone know the name and address of an hotel near a Sita's Temple which I guess is about 35km south of Allahabad and it is in sight of a tall statue of Hanuman. We stayed there on my last trip to India but we arrived after midnight after travelling for about 18 hours so I was very tired and did not get my bearings. I do know it was just a few km off the main Allahabad/Varanassi road. I would love to go there again on my next trip as it was magical. Sorry my description is a bit vague but I would be very grateful for any information
