Bata Has Been Fined Rs. 9,000 on Forcing The Customer To Pay Rs. 3 for a Paper Bag

One question, “Sir Apko carry bag chahiye?” must sound very familiar to all of you Right? This is one of the most common questions asked to you by the executives at the billing desks of a store when you go shopping. And I bet, almost everyone has must experience this situation once in life.

Big retailers like Big Bazaar, Reliance, Pantaloons, Shoppers Stop and many other giant brands never miss the opportunity to charge for a small paper bag for keeping the stuff you have purchased from them.

But, after a tight slap of Rs. 9,000 on the footwear company, Bata by the Consumer Forum other retailers will be forced to think twice before asking or forcing its customers to pay for a paper bag while doing shopping.

Let’s talk about the whole incident

One of the most renowned shoemakers, Bata has been fined an amount of Rs, 9,000 for charging a small amount of Rs. 3 for a paper bag from its customer. A customer, Dinesh Prasad Raturi who hails from Chandigarh was given a total bill of Rs. 402 which also included paper bag charges when he bought a pair of shoes from the store located in the sector 22D.

Dinesh straightaway denied the store executive for paying Rs. 3 for a paper bag instead he demanded a refund of Rs. 3 for being charged for a paper bag.

According to him, he found this practice of charging for a paper bag is unethical. So, he went straight to the consumer forum and lodged a complaint against the brand for charging him money for the bag.

He further told that Bata was endorsing its brand on the paper bag which is totally unfair and therefore he decided to ask for a refund of Rs. 3 with compensation from the executive.

On listening to the plea of the customer, the consumer forum has directed Bata India Limited to pay back Rs. 3,000 to Raturi for the problem he has faced due to the deficiency in their services.

Also, they were asked to refund the amount of Rs.3 that was asked by him to pay for a paper bag along with litigation charges, i.e. Rs. 1,000.

On seeing all this, Bata has countered the charges, the consumer forum has also said that if the brand is really concerned towards the environment then they would have provided free paper bags to the customers.

Now, this Bata incident is giving strict warning to all the other retailers or big brands who are charging unnecessary for a paper bag from their customers. And hats off to the guy who took this matter straight away to the court otherwise it would never have come in front of us. Take note, folks!

Marijuana Benefits: How Weed Helped You to Get In Shape

Before we dive in, let me explain my relationship with exercise and fitness in general. I grew up an ordinary kid running around with friends in our yard. In high school, I joined the track team and the swim team. I carried this on to my college days, where I made it to the varsity team in my university. After college, I got into running and joined a few marathons in and around the city. 

I am also blessed enough that I live somewhere that allows me to surf a couple of times a year. On days where I’m not training for a marathon or surfing, I hit the gym pretty regularly. As for my diet, I try to stick to eating more fruits and vegetables and avoid fried food and sodas. Fitness has always come easy for me, so when I hear claims such as this, I tend to take it with a grain of salt.

I started smoking weed in my 20s. At first, it was out of curiosity, but I began to smoke it a couple of times a month as a means to de-stress from work and life in general.

I prefer it over going out and drinking. I play a good movie, eat an edible or smoke my pipe, and munch on some chips or nuts (I try to eat healthy even when I’m high). A friend once told me that he tried getting high before he hit the gym and said it was a fantastic experience. 

I got curious and made a note to give it a try when the opportunity arose. Well, it did a few weeks later. And my friend was right. I usually feel aches and mild pains during my gym time, and especially when I do yoga but being high has made me not focus on it too much. My breathing was a lot steadier and calmer.

Being high while working out has also given me the freedom to enjoy my workout truly

I didn’t have to continually check the miles I’ve run on the treadmill or the time I’ve spent in the gym. I wasn’t disgruntled by other gym-goers hogging the machine or not wiping it after their use. The feeling was euphoric throughout, and I wondered why I hadn’t done this before. I would be in a better shape if I have this to look forward to every time I exercise.

I did a few research about this, and there is, in fact, a growing trend of workout, at least in places where weed is legal, that involves cannabis use. There is a weed-infused yoga for people to try. A cannabis gym in San Francisco recently opened. And there is a growing number of athletes who get high before they workout or do their training.

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of scientific research done to prove all these claims

In many parts of the United States, cannabis is still considered to be a Schedule I drug. However, the most recent country that just decriminalized the drug in Canada. And it has been easier for eligible users, especially if they buy weed online from Canada.

But times are changing, and people’s views on the plant are also slowly changing. Who knows, we might see the day when buying and using weed is going to be as easy as purchasing alcohol.

1 Million People Signed Up and 869K were Interested in “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” Event on Facebook

Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us

Ever since our existence, humankind has been excited about terrestrial life. Scientists, government and a lot of local enthusiasts strongly believe that there is something beyond earth. They believe there is another terrestrial life for sure which we are still oblivious of may be made oblivious because the truth could be too scary for the government to reveal. It is not a very new question to raise whether there are aliens or not. There have been several incidents reported that tells about the visits from the extraterrestrials but sadly enough there aren’t ardent proofs to go by the theory.

It is also not the first time that local enthusiasts have taken an initiative to find out about the existence of aliens. We all are aware most of the extraterrestrial activities reported in Canada, so much so that in the province of Alberta, there is an area left as a helipad for UFOs to land. The Audorg, a research group focused on the study and investigation of UFO and extraterrestrial encounters in the province of Alberta.

But this time it is not Canada, but the people across the world are joining hands in a revolutionary event that is formed to raid or force enter the restricted area of Amargosa Valley, Nevada, a restricted military base-Area 51.

The site is highly confidential and has been safeguarded, theorist believes that government is surely keeping a piece of secret information on aliens in this camp.

Soon a Facebook Event was created to invade this area with a huge number of people signing in together. The event knowns as “Storm Area 51 They Can’t Stop All of Us” was confirmed by over 1 million people to be attending and 869k people being interested.

Ever since the event was created people are sharing their thoughts and creating, memes about raiding the high profile site. The event detail reads “We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let’s see them, aliens.”

Memes and Funny posts are flooding the page now

Soon enough the event turned into a humorous idea and people started mocking the event by giving hilarious plans to attack one of the posts reads “Ok guys, I feel like we need to formulate a game plan, I’ve put together this easy to follow diagram here for a proposed plan.

The basic idea is that the Kyles from the front line if we feed them enough psilocybin and monster energy and say that anyone in camouflage is their stepdad, and the entire base is made of drywall then they will go berserk and become an impenetrable wall. Then the Rock Throwers will throw pebbles at the inevitable resistance (we don’t want to hurt them, we just want to annoy them enough to not shoot the kyles as often)”

It further reads “the two naruto runner battallions will run full speed around the north and south flank, and shadow clone jutsu, effectively tripling our numbers, and overwhelm the base (red circle). P.S. Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan. I just thought it would be funny and get me some thumbs uppies on the internet.

Russian spies tried to get there and failed

It might have taken a funny turn but this is a matter of wondering why this base camp is restricted from anyone in the world. It is surely an important or vital source for any solid information about the extraterrestrial lives because Russian spies tried to get there and failed.

Not only that Clinton government also tried to get there but all efforts in vain. So, what about this highly protected confidential area that leads to so many mystery and insecurities regarding the aliens. Isn’t it the high time that all of us should know about it?

What To Look For In a Roofing Company

Roofing Company

Selecting the right roofer can change everything about the project of installing, replacing, or repairing your roof. Yet, knowing how to find the correct roofer will be a confusing task if you don’t know what to look for. That is why we have made a list of things to look for in a roofing company that you can use. This will help you select the roofing company that is local and within your budget. 

Here are the things you should focus on when looking for a roofing contractor or company:

  • Business licenses 
  • Certifications and credentials
  • Local references and testimonials
  • Insurance
  • Warranties

Let’s look at these points in more depth.

1. Insurance 

The roofing company should always have insurance to cover any mistakes or injuries on their part. When you check the website, you might see some of the insurance certificates on display; but you can also call the company to request information about their insurances and confirm validity. 

2. Go Local

A local business that knows your area and community, and more importantly, has also serviced your area, is going to be better than the company far outside your region. Not only does this mean you may know someone who has used said a company in the past, but you can also trust the testimonials and reviews on their site or other rating sites, you will know whether they have an established business. 

A local company that has been around for a while is also better than a new one. Many roofing contractors will come and go—and this can be problematic if there is a problem. If the contractor leaves the area, how will they own up their warranties or insurance? So go local. 

3. Communication

A transparent and honest company is going to be one that communicates well. When you call, how long does it take to reply? Do they return your calls? Is the representative friendly and informative? Do they follow through with promises, like calling you back or sending requested information? If you feel concerned about what they are saying or if the interaction upsets you somehow, then you shouldn’t use that company. 

Communication is key to everything. 

1. Read the Contract

You should always take your time when reading the contractor. Upon receiving the written estimate, make sure it has everything you discussed, even oral promises that the contractor has made. Discuss anything that is missing to prevent future confusion. Ask for explanations of anything you don’t understand. Be sure to hold onto the final copy of the contract. Never sign a contract with a company that tells you to pay for everything before the job is completed. 

When it comes to your roof, one of the most important pieces of the house, you should only choose the best roofing company in your area. Remember to search for insurance and warranty information on their website, get reviews and references, and ask the company your questions. If they don’t live up to your expectations, move on. There are better companies out there!
