Why I will stay away from Myntra.com like the plague!

My review of a T-shirt ordered from Myntra.com. In my opinion, they sell low quality, export rejects to their customers. I’d rather walk around naked than wear a Myntra T-shirt again.

Permanently delete your Facebook account

Yesterday, I set out to do something which I had thought would be particularly easy. When Facebook had not opened up to the world, I had tried to register with them. Now, I do not remember how that attempt went but recently I started getting loads of emails from Facebook on the email address I […]
