Don’t use CAD Institute for Online AutoCad Classes

I am on a venting binge since this weekend (see Fido post). Actually no, I am just taking advantage of social media to fight back injustice in order to obtain what is rightfully owed to me. These days companies have learned how to promise a product that they don’t necessarily deliver. Or they trick you into paying more than you expected. Having worked since I was 15 I bloody well know the amount of effort and pain that goes into earning every single cent. All so that capitalistic heartless savages can swindle money from you right before your eyes.

So I started off by calling Fido and asking for a cheque that I should have received 2 years ago. I hated them while I was with and it was the happiest day of my life when I ended it. The fact that it’s been 2 years later, I’m not one of their customers and yet my mind is filled with hatred for them is completely their fault!

Acer dude was funny in a non-funny way. I started wondering how many people these days would actually pay $200 to repair their laptop. I feel sorry for these guys on the phone, they must know they sound idiotic based on people’s reactions.

Afterwards, I sent an e-mail to Second Cup explaining why they have lost me as a customer because of the lack of consistency and effort put into providing the absolute best drink (in my case it was the Caramel Corretto).

From Oct – Dec 2011 I took an online AutoCad course from CAD Institute. Upon completion I was suppose to receive a certificate in the mail. Three months later I didn’t get it, so I emailed the instructor and he told me that it’s been sent in regular mail (this is located in Kentucky, USA). It takes about a month for e-bay products from Hong Kong to reach me via regular mail. So please explain to me why I haven’t received it a month later?

I called the number on their site and explained the above. The guy kept on saying all certificates are sent 2 weeks after the completion of the course. Then he told me to e-mail the registrar. I said I already did that a month ago. His explanation was that the e-mail didn’t  go through and that’s why they haven’t responded to me … -__-… SERIOUSLY ?? It’s very rare but it does happen, we Canadians get furious as well.

I sent another e-mail to the registrar let see if they respond.

Many have suffered ‘The Wrath of Khan’ over the past three days. So seriously think twice before you cross my path. I can do a whole lot of damage with Twitter, Facebook and WordPress!


2002 Gujarat Riots

This is in response to a tweet that started off with this:

Siva’s response :

Couldn’t fit my reply to Siva in 140 chars:

Every battle, war, riot is preceded by an event that triggers it. People do not go on killing spree without a reason. There is no denying that Godhra train burning was what initiated the riots of 2002. In Zahir’s review of Kai Po Che nowhere did I see him deny the occurrence of Godhra incident. If there are other places where Zahir and Co. has implied that Muslims did not burn that train in Godhra, please point it out.

The pilgrims on the train were innocent and in no way were they deserving of such a torturous end. Killing is forbidden in Islam and is considered an unforgivable sin. Only time it is allowed is for self defence and during wars. Those people who burned Sabarmati express may have been Muslims, however they weren’t following the teachings of Islam. This goes for any Muslim around the world who kills innocent people in the name of Jihad !

The riots killed almost 2000 people and displaced around 100 000 people, majority of which were Muslims. Houses, businesses, and religious places were burnt down in the name of retaliation and revenge. Tell me, did the killing of 2000 innocent lives even out the loss of ~60 people that died in Godhra? What’s more shameful is that is riot happened in the home state of Gandhi, he’s probably turning in his grave at the moment. ‘An eye for an eye makes the world blind!’ Not only is this happening in India , but all over the world.

The most recent shelling of the Gaza Strip in November 2012 started when Israel dropped a bomb killing a teenage boy that was playing football (Israel and its supporting media will conveniently forget to point out this incident) Gaza retaliated and in response they were showered by artillery that killed around 1400 (unsure of exact figure) by the end. Comparatively, around 100 Israelis were killed. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a question of whose lives are worth more. But just look at the numbers and that itself will highlight the injustice of such war fare. In the end, it is innocent voiceless people that are affected by the ego battle between few senseless men in power.

In a fair and just world the riots would not have happened. The only response to the Godhra incident should have been the prosecution of the culprits that were responsible for it. Wiki page shows people were convicted, but who is now going to be held responsible for the lives affected in the riots ?

I have no faith in any reports conducted by the Indian government. You show me the SIT report and I’ll show you the report by Human Rights Watch: , which by the way was written by a Hindu, Smita Narula. Please read this report: (‘We have no orders to save you’). This report was written in April 2002, which I’m sure is more accurate of the events than the SIT, which was written 4 years after the riots.

Here is another reason why I have no faith in investigations done by the Indian government:

I maybe a Muslim, but my heart goes out to all innocent lives that have been lost in these futile riots/ethnic cleansing/wars irrespective of race/religion/colour. Only God truly knows if the Gujarat riots were premeditated ethnic cleansing of the Muslims. It’s a sad reality that Hindu Muslim riots have become a daily occurrence in India since the partition. The only way that could be removed from the future of India is if people from our generation like you and me stopped dwelling on past events in an attempt to determine who was right and who was wrong.

People need to start identifying each other as Humans, not differentiating each other based on race/religion/colour/language.
