The beginner's guide to RTI INDIA #Hashtags

If you’re a RTI INDIA novice, hashtags — those short links preceded by the pound sign (#) — may seem confusing and unnecessary. But they are integral to the way we communicate online both at RTI INDIA as well as on other social media like twitter, facebook, Instagram e.t.c., and it’s important to know how to use them. Plus, they can be a lot of fun.   On RTI INDIA, the pound sign (or hash) turns any word or group of words that directly follow it into a searchable link. This allows you to organ

Why does RTI INDIA ask for verification of email?

Why is verification important?     Let people know it's really you. Your profile badge will be upgraded to Verified so that others know that your comments are truly from you. No impersonators! Verifying your email prevents others from using your email address when posting on sites using Disqus Comments. Your comments won't get stuck. With a verified profile, your comments will be less likely to get stuck in moderation or in the spam filter.

Shoe Don't Fit in this world...

This was a terrible trip for me to New Delhi. I had a plan to buy a good pair of shoes this time when the ministry called me up for a meeting. I was very enthusiastic to hear that delhi is running with sale and every shop owner would oblige you with a hefty discount. The day I ended up with official session, I landed up in Shipra Mall hoping to get my pair of shoes. To my surprise, they did not had any for me. I ended up the whole two days at 2 other Malls, South Extension, Khan Market, Ansal
