      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.

      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.



    • 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

    • Guwahati budget friendly accomodation, query

      State of Assam Nov 1, 2007 at 4:06 AM

      I'll be in Guwahati, State of Assam, 4 and 5 November 2007; I am looking for a very budget friendly accomodation: a hotel, or any sort of accomodation, as long as it is a safe one, of course, for 1 person for two days. I will arrive at the Guwahati airport at about 7 pm, 4 November: is there an info point there, so that I won't have a hard time finding an accomodation without booking first ? I'd like to have a very downtown place to stay: is there some sort of shuttle to and from the airport ?

      One more point: is there the Guwahati old town where one can get the flavor of non modern India ?

      Thank you for any reply anyone of you will kindly post
