Sooner or lateo each and every piece of information changes. But atleast the rates speak of certain basic standards. For example if the room rate is 2000/- 2500/- per day, I'll safely assume that it is a good budget hotel and not the type of one star or five star. Regarding rates, they are not expected to double it within no time. Even if the increase it by 10%, it is OK.

एक्सीडेंट
एक डॉक्टर बड़ी ही तेजी से हॉस्पिटल में घुसा , उसे किसी एक्सीडेंट के मामले में तुरंत बुलाया गया था। अंदर घुसते ही उसने देखा कि जिस लड़के का एक्सीडेंट हुआ है उसके परिजन बड़ी बेसब्री से उसका इंतज़ार कर रहे हैं।
डॉक्टर को देखते ही लड़के का पिता बोला , ” आप लोग अपनी ड्यूटी ठीक से क्यों नहीं करते , आपने आने में इतनी देर क्यों लगा दी ….अगर मेरे बेटे को कुछ हुआ तो इसके जिम्मेदार आप होंगे …”
डॉक्टर

ने विनम्रता कहा , ” आई ऍम सॉरी , मैं हॉस्पिटल में नहीं था , और कॉल आने के बाद जितना तेजी से हो सका मैं यहाँ आया हूँ। कृपया अब आप लोग शांत हो जाइये ताकि मैं इलाज कर सकूँ….”
“शांत हो जाइये !!!” , लड़के का पिता गुस्से में बोला , ” क्या इस समय अगर आपका बेटा होता तो आप शांत रहते ? अगर किसी की लापरवाही की वजह से आपका अपना बेटा मर जाए तो आप क्या करेंगे ?” ; पिता बोले ही जा रहा था।
” भगवान चाहेगा तो सब ठीक हो जाएगा , आप लोग दुआ कीजिये मैं इलाज के लिए जा रहा हूँ। ” , और ऐसा कहते हुए डॉक्टर ऑपरेशन थिएटर में प्रवेश कर गया।
बाहर लड़के का पिता अभी भी बुदबुदा रहा था , ” सलाह देना आसान होता है , जिस पर बीतती है वही जानता है…”
करीब डेढ़ घंटे बाद डॉक्टर बाहर निकला और मुस्कुराते हुए बोला , ” भगवान् का शुक्र है आपका बेटा अब खतरे से बाहर है। “
यह सुनते ही लड़के के परिजन खुश हो गए और डॉक्टर से सवाल पर सवाल पूछने लगे , ” वो कब तक पूरी तरह से ठीक हो जायेगा…… उसे डिस्चार्ज कब करेंगे….?…”
पर डॉक्टर जिस तेजी से आया था उसी तेजी से वापस जाने लगा और लोगों से अपने सवाल नर्स से पूछने को कहा।
” ये डॉक्टर इतना घमंडी क्यों है , ऐसी क्या जल्दी है कि वो दो मिनट हमारे सवालों का जवाब नहीं दे सकता ?” लड़के के पिता ने नर्स से कहा।
नर्स लगभग रुंआसी होती हुई बोली , ” आज सुबह डॉक्टर साहब के लड़के की एक भयानक एक्सीडेंट में मौत हो गयी , और जब हमने उन्हें फ़ोन किया था तब वे उसका अंतिम संस्कार करने जा रहे थे। और बेचारे अब आपके बच्चे की जान बचाने के बाद अपने लाडले का अंतिम संस्कार करने के लिए वापस लौट रहे हैं। “
यह सुन लड़के के परिजन और पिता स्तब्ध रह गए और उन्हें अपनी गलती का ऐहसास हो गया।
फ्रेंड्स, बहुत बार हम किसी सिचुएशन के बारे में अच्छी तरह जाने बिना ही उसपर रियेक्ट कर देते हैं। पर हमें चाहिए कि हम खुद पर नियंत्रण रखें और पूरी स्थिति को समझे बिना कोई नकारात्मक प्रतिक्रिया न दें। वर्ना अनजाने में हम उसे ही ठेस पहुंचा सकते हैं जो हमारा ही भला सोच रहा हो।

For those who were unable to read a news item:
================================================== =================
CCI orders probe against Indian Railways, IRCTC
================================================== =================
The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has ordered an investigation against Indian
...

Railways and its arm IRCTC for alleged unfair practices related to compulsory sale of food to travellers on some trains and ticket booking.
This is the second major probe by the fair trade watchdog against a central government enterprise, after Coal India.
The Competition Commission of India's (CCI) latest investigation came on a complaint filed against the Ministry of Railways and the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd (IRCTC).
The probe would also look into the possible role of individuals related to the matter.
"The Commission is of the opinion that prima facie, a case of contravention of the provisions of the (Competition) Act is made out against IR (Indian Railways) and IRCTC," the watchdog said in an order made public today.
Passengers being compulsory charged for catering facility on the Rajdhani and other trains, as well as alleged unfair conditions in the sale of Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duranto catering and travel services "prima facie" appear to be violating competition norms, CCI said.
Besides, levying premium charges for calls made to 139, which is the railway enquiry service, restricting the services of agents authorised by IRCTC, among others, have also come under the scanner.
"Service charge imposed on e-tickets being non-refundable even if the passenger needed to cancel the ticket; e-wallet scheme with unreasonable conditions appear to be some of their conducts" which have also been found to be prima facie in violation of competition rules.
As per the order dated February 28, the Commission has asked its Director General (DG) to carry out a detailed probe into the matter.
The DG would also look at the role, if any, of persons in these entities who were responsible for the conduct of the businesses.
"Transportation of passenger through railway in India" appears to be the relevant market in the present case, the order said.
Such a market would also include the ancillary segment like ticketing, catering on board and platform facilities, among others, it added.
The allegations of the three complainants essentially relate to the conduct of Indian Railways with respect to the services provided by its subsidiary IRCTC.

Sir, it is clearly a wayside vendor, as the train has no pantry car.

I have heard that a new train is being started between Sri Ganganagar and Delhi, via Dhuri.
Is it right.
