For someone that has to be connected, India is a nightmare for me. Everytime I travel here, I try and sort out a SIM that I can use but there are so many hoops we have to jump through to get the SIM, then get it activated, then get data on it and then make sure you have the right provider that gives the right level of service, its a nightmare. I wish Mr. Modi that made all those promises that it would be easier to do business here, would really get down and make life a lot easier for us travelling business folks. Seriously, all the bureaucratic red hoops we have to jump through to get a simple tool so we can stay connected is only punishing ordinary folks because the ones these were designed for are finding the right loopholes. Trust me.
This time I am going to hang on to this SIM so I can use it every time I visit India and pray that it works wherever I go in India.
And don't get me started on the banks. And THEIR red tape. Its like they don't want us to keep our money here.
